Litecoin Surges Along With the Rest of the Market But Corrects Lower With Bitcoin. At the time of writing, the price of Litecoin LTC was $56.94. It is down by 3.79% against the USD and down by 0.04% against Bitcoin BTC.
The trading volume over a 24 hour period is $3,777,763,660 and the market capitalization is $3,710,308,054. Earlier today, Bitcoin BTC was correcting lower just like Litecoin LTC. However, Bitcoin has started gaining momentum. It is now trading higher by 3.5 % at $11,724.96. The Litecoin LTC market cap has dropped from the $3.89k level to its current level. However, there is still hope that the bulls will come back to the market as the Bitcoin bulls are coming back with full force and pushing the price of the BTC token to the $12k level once again.
In the first 6 hours of trading today, Litecoin LTC formed an ascending trendline at the $59.88 level. The rally was an extension of the price surge that started on the 21st of July. Since then, spurts of growth have been showing up on the price charts at higher highs and higher lows. Still, the LTC token was able to cross key resistances comfortably and without stalling.
The token is currently extremely volatile as you can see from the widening of the Bollinger bands. However, the signal line is under the price bars implying that the price will soon move upwards irrespective of the current trend in the market.
The relative strength index is now at the overbought level. This indicates that the sellers will control the market for a while before the bulls resume the rally. Hopefully, the price of LTC will reach an equilibrium level soon. If the token starts falling against the USD, it will find strong support at the $56.35 level. This level is already preventing the token from reaching lower lows. The next support after this level will be at $48. Since Bitcoin BTC has started moving higher, the LTC token will most likely follow its lead. Upward, the key resistance is at $60.
