Litecoin Technical Framework
Technically looking, Litecoin must remain above $ 50.00 to avoid more pronounced sales towards the recent low recorded at $ 47,231 on September 12 . This psychologically important is likely that the area will stop falling and attract new buyers in the short term, creating a rangebound trading environment.
On the upside, the first resistance is seen at $ 54.20 (SMA200, 1 hour chart), followed by $ 54.5 (SMA50, 1 hour chart) and a major $ 55.00. Once this area has been canceled, the shot could be extended to the short-term final goal at $ 60.00.
The New York-based cryptocurrency exchange announced LTC support, however, the crypto community has just yawned in response. This is the case in which no reaction is so indicative as a strong movement. In the past, such listing news was considered a huge bullish signal and caused a strong rally as it meant more adoption, more widespread use and so on.
But now the reaction is muted or short-lived at best, which could mean that the cryptocurrency market is moving farther away from the fundamentals, however few are, controlled entirely by speculative flows.
