- LTC / USD continues recovery from recent lows, ready for a "short-term turnaround"
- The picture is positive as long as the currency remains above $ 55.00.

The average daily trading volumes of the currency are set at $ 300 million, which is in line with the long-term average.

Litecoin Technical Framework
Technically looking, a sustainable break above $ 54.40 resistance, created by an inclined trend line from September 7 peak recovery, has improved the short-term picture and created a technical impetus needed for a breakthrough above $ 55.00. Now the focus has shifted to $ 55.56, which is Fibo's retracement level of 38.2% for the downtrend from the September high to $ 69.30. LTC / USD hit $ 55.71 during the early Asian hours but failed to keep the ground.
On the downside, the first support is produced by $ 55.00. A lower sustainable movement will trigger more sales and push the price towards $ 54.10 (SMA200, 4-hour chart and the aforementioned trend line). SMA100 at $ 52.31 is followed by SMA50 and Fibo retracement of 23.6% to $ 52.30.
