Litecoin Price Prediction: LTC targets new yearly highs at $320

  • Litecoin price breakout from bull flag on the 12-hour chart
  • The digital asset faces no significant resistance ahead, according to on-chain metrics. 
  • The cryptocurrency market turns extremely bullish again ahead of Coinbase IPO. 

Litecoin (LTC) price has been trading inside a robust uptrend since March 25 and just hit a new 2020-high at $270. On-chain metrics show practically no resistance ahead as the digital asset targets $320.

Litecoin price breaks out of key pattern 

On the 12-hour chart, Litecoin broke out from a bull flag with our price target of $320. This target is calculated using the height of the pole as a reference point. On April 5, Litecoin cracked the upper resistance trendline of the flag and had a significant continuation.

However, there is also weak support from the current price of $268 down to $251, which means LTC could see a correction before the next leg up. In the past week, the number of whales has decreased notably.
