Litecoin's technical picture

On the intraday level, LTC/USD is trying to settle above pivotal $24.00; however, this resistance level is strengthened by a confluence of strong technical indicators, including the upper of the Bollinger Band (1-hour) and SMA50. The next resistance is created by SMA100 (1-hour) at $24.58. Once this level is cleared, the upside may be extended towards $26.00 and $26.64 (SMA200, 1-hour). Considering that the Relative Strength Index is reversing to the downside, sustainable growth is hardly possible at least in the short-term.

On the downside, LTC/USD is supported by the middle border of the Bollinger Band (1-hour) at $23.52. A strong move below that level will increase the selling pressure and take Litecoin's price to $23.00 strengthened by the lower line of the Bollinger Band. Once below, the recent low of $22.37 will come into focus.
