LTC/USD 1-hour chart

As observed on the hourly sticks, following the head and shoulders (H&S) breakout on Saturday, the price remains on track to reach the pattern target around 64.80 region. Bolstering the upbeat momentum, a bullish flag pattern is spotted, suggesting that the coin is bidding for the next push higher, with the immediate focus now on last week’s high at 64.32, where the horizontal trendline resistance coincide. On a sustained break above the last, the bulls are likely to face stiff resistance around 64.70/80, the confluence of the H&S as well as bull flag pattern target. The further upside is also justified by the hourly Relative Strength Index (RSI), which is seen reversing from the oversold territory.

Meanwhile, the downside remains cushioned by the falling trendline support at 62.66, below which the next supports awaits at the upward sloping 21-hourly Simple Moving Average (HMA) and the horizontal 100-HMA, now located at 61.82.
