LTC/USD: Technical picture
On the daily chart, LTC/USD has settled in a tight range limited by SMA50 at $45.10 on the upside and a combinatin of SMA100 and the lower boundary of the Bollinger Band at $42.50. The coin has recovered from June 15 low of $41.45; however, the further upside momentum seems to be limited for now. The flat RSI on the daily chart supports the range-bound scenario.
A sustainable move above the upper boundary of the channel will improve the technical [picture and allow for an extended recovery towards open up the way to $48.50 reinforced by the upper line of the daily Bollinger Band and the daily SMA200 and June 2 high at $49.50.
Meanwhile, if the price moves below $42.50, the sell-off is likely to continue with the next focus on the recent low.
