Looking at LTC/USD 4-hour chart, we see a bullish trend that has defied all odds to sustain higher highs and lower highs above the trendline support. Litecoin has in the last six weeks broke several barriers, for example, the hurdles at $35.00, $45.00 and $50.00. The trading in March has pulled the asset further up above $55.00. Although the price has corrected above $60.00, Litecoin has not been able to break above the resistance at $60.00.

At the time of press, Litecoin is trading at $57.73. The bulls have been making attempts to break above $60.00 but the bearish pressure keeps sending them back towards the $50 support.
