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.

The confirmation of the buy signal has the potential to drive Litecoin price towards the middle trendline of the channel at $220 and up to the upper boundary at $260.

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.

On the flip side, if the bears can push Litecoin price below the key support level of $165, the digital asset can quickly fall towards $130 and as low as $90 in the longer-term.
