However, when the month of November began to negotiate, price action collapsed below support.
The market fell into the aforementioned support at the $ 37 command. We can see that this support is further strengthened by the 1.618 Fibonacci extension (designed in turquoise) for $ 37.51.
Going forward, if sellers continue to drive the price of falling Bitcoins, we can expect that even LTC / USD will continue to fall. In this bearish scenario, we can expect immediate support below the short-term levels of 1,272 and 1,414 Fibonacci Extension (drawn in green), with a price of $ 36.54 and $ 34.25 respectively.
Further support below this can therefore be placed in the long term 1,414 Fibonacci Extension level (drawn in purple) for the price of $ 30.69.

On the other side of the equation, if the $ 37 support remains valid and price action starts to recover, we can expect the immediate resistance above to be located at the psychological round number level at $ 40. .
If buyers continue to push the market above the $ 40 handle, we can expect more resistance and then find ourselves at the previous medium-term downtrend 1,272 of the FIbonacci extension level (drawn in red) for $ 43.79. The following resistance is expected at level 1.414 Fibonacci Extension (designed in turquoise) for $ 49.21.
If the bullish rise can continue above the $ 50 handle, we can expect further resistance to be at $ 53.69, followed by the Fibonacci extension level of 1,227.2 (drawn in turquoise) for $ 57.35.
