LTC/USD: Technical picture
At the time of writing, LTC/USD is changing hands at $45.69, mostly unchanged both on a day-to-day basis and since the beginning of Wednesday. On the intraday level, LTC/USD is supported by $45.00 with 1-hour SMA50 located on the approach to that level. Once it is out of the way, the sell-off is likely to gain traction with the next focus on $44.50 (1-hour SMA100). The coin continues moving within the short-term upside trend line now located at $44.40.
On the upside, a sustainable move above $46.20 (intraday high) is needed for the upside to gain traction and bring $47.00 into focus. The next resistance is created by the recent high at $47.50.
