Litecoin Price Forecast: LTC targets $260 as whales go into a buying frenzy

  • Litecoin price is contained inside an ascending parallel channel on the 12-hour chart.
  • LTC bulls have just defended a crucial support level and aim for a significant rebound.
  • A key indicator is on the verge of presenting a strong buy signal for LTC.

Litecoin price is still down by 30% since its 2021 peak of $247. However, the cryptocurrency market is showing signs of a recovery, and Litecoin bulls are planning to take advantage of it.

Litecoin price poised for greatness as whales continue to accumulate

On the 12-hour chart, Litecoin price remains contained inside an ascending parallel channel and has just defended the lower trendline support. Additionally, the TD Sequential indicator has presented a red ‘8’ candlestick which is usually followed by a buy signal.

LTC Holders Distribution

Additionally, the number of whales holding between 100,000 and 1,000,000 LTC has significantly increased since February 8, from a low of 110 to 117 currently, which indicates large holders believe Litecoin price will rise even more.
