Litecoin's technical picture

Litecoin bulls managed to push the coin above $100.00, but the upside proved to be unsustainable so far.We will need to see a strong move above mentioned SMA100 on a daily chart (currently at $102.76) to get the recovery back on track and unlock the way towards the next large barrier created by $117.5 (23.6% Fibo retracements for the upside move from $22.88 low). This area is strengthened by SMA50 daily located at $118.62. The initial resistance is created by psychological $120.00. 


On the downside, a move below $97.20 (SMA100 weekly) may trigger an extended sell-off towards the next psychological barrier at $90.00, followed by 50% Fibo retracements for the above-said move at intraday low of $84.65, The ultimate support awaits us at $76.62 (the recent low) and $76.22 (SMA200 daily).
