LTC/USD daily chart

Litecoin price is pushing for consolidation above $80. The ability to defend $80 will determine how fast the bulls can relaunch the attack towards $100. However, danger lurks in the ‘dark’ with the formation of a rising wedge pattern. If the resistance at $85 is not cleared, Litecoin’s potential for a reversal will remain high. This means that sellers could trim the accrued gains until LTC finds credible support at $60 if not $70.

LTC/USD 1-hour chart

Short term technical analysis shows Litecoin bulls taking over control from the bears. LTC is bouncing off the support provided by an ascending trendline in conjunction with the 50SMA. A short term resistance at $80 must come down for LTC to tackle higher levels at $85 and then trend towards $100.
