Litecoin price eyes up potential 50% rebound

Litecoin price has been contained inside an ascending parallel channel for the past month. In the past 48 hours, LTC bulls have defended the channel's lower boundary and now are back on track, targeting a weak resistance to the upside.

The next price target is located at $210, which is the middle trendline of the pattern, and the next level for the bulls would be $250 at the top. The In/Out of the Money Around Price (IOMAP) chart indicates that Litecoin faces only one key resistance area on this path.

A breakout above the area between $200 and $205 should quickly drive Litecoin price towards the upper boundary of the ascending channel at $250.

However, the IOMAP model also indicates that Litecoin only has one strong support area between $182.7 and $188.3 on the way down. Losing this critical range can easily push Litecoin price down to $166, which coincides with the lower trendline of the ascending parallel channel.
