• The LTC forecast is favorable as long as it stays above $40.00
  • Bulls set their eyes at $60.00.

Litecoin has been one of the best-performing cryptocurrencies lately. The coin has gained over 21% in recent seven days and settled at the 5th place in a global cryptocurrency rating compiled by CoinMarketCap. 

LTC/USD is changing hands at $51.10 at the time of writing, off the recent high hit at $51.40 during late Wednesday hours. 

From the long-term point of view, LTC/USD picture looks bullish. The coin is trading above DMA200 for the first time since the beginning of May 2018, which is a positive signal. In terms of price momentum, LTC closed the bearish gap created in November 2018, while a sustainable move above 50.00 handle gave credibility to the recovery process. 

Now the first level to watch on the way up is the recent high of $51.40. Once it is cleared, $56.55 (November 7, 2018 high) will come into focus followed by psychological $60.00.

DMA200 creates the significant support at $45.41, preceded by interim support at $47.20-$47.00 (broken resistance). A sustainable move below the said bearish target would negate the immediate bullish scenario and bring psychological $40.00 back in the limelight.
