LTC/USD: Technical picture

Litecoin's strong recovery is driven mostly by technical factors and general market sentiments. A sustainable move above 200-day SMA at $49.67 created a strong bullish impulse and pushed the price to the highest level since Markc 13. Once the price regains ground above $56.00, the upside momentum will gain traction with the next focus on 100-week SMA on approach to $60.00.

On the downside, the local support is created by 50-week SMA at $52.00. If it is broken, the sell-off may be extended to psychological $50.00 and the above-mentioned 200-day SMA at $49.67.
