Litecoin Technical Analysis: LTC poised to flip bullish if support at $70 holds

  • Litecoin technical levels are improving as buyers work to secure support above $70.
  • A sell signal may manifest on the daily chart in the coming sessions, validating the bullish outlook.

 Litecoin seems to be hunting for support above $70, following another rejection at $75. This expected support's role is to shift the bulls' focus to higher price levels, preferably above $80. Moreover, the buyer congestion zone might help avert any potential declines back to the robust support at $65.

Litecoin bulls eagerly search for support ahead of a rebound

LTC/USD is exchanging hands at $71.2. It is an uphill battle for the bulls and the bears. The winner of the tug of war will shape the direction Litecoin takes. A rebound may come into play for the bulls, allowing them to push the price past the short-term hurdle at $75 and the 200 Simple Moving Average.

Price action beyond $80 will call for massive buy orders mainly because it will confirm the return of the bulls as well as LTC's ability to recover following a correction in a bull market.

Similarly, the Relative Strength Index shows that Litecoin is oversold at the moment. Therefore, a rebound is most likely in the near term. A descending wedge pattern hints at a potentially massive breakout, perhaps above $80.

The TD Sequential indicator could present a buy signal in the form of a red nine candlestick on the daily chart. The bullish outlook will see the demand for LTC surge, thereby creating enough volume to support a significant upward price action.

On the same daily chart, Litecoin is trading above the parabolic SAR points, adding credibility to the bullish narrative.

The bullish outlook will be invalidated if Litecoin fails to secure support above $70. The bearish leg might stretch to $65, where a double-bottom pattern may perhaps form. Here, buyers will plan for a well-executed recovery mission towards $100.
