The Hourly View for LTC
Last Updated December 24, 2020, 15:16 GMT
Currently, Litecoin’s price is down $-0.08 (-0.07%) from the hour prior. This is the 2nd straight hour Litecoin has seen its price head down. If you’re a trend trader, consider that the strongest clear trend on the hourly chart exists on the 50 hour timeframe. Price action traders may also wish to note that we see a pin bar candlestick pattern on Litecoin. Given that we see an uptrend on the 20 hourly candle timeframe, and that such candlestick patterns often denote reversals, this may be worth noting. The moving averages on the hourly timeframe suggest a choppiness in price, as the 20, 50, 100 and 200 are all in a mixed alignment — meaning the trend across timeframes is inconsistent, indicating a potential opportunity for rangebound traders.

Litecoin Technical Analysis
Trend traders will want to observe that the strongest trend appears on the 14 day horizon; over that time period, price has been moving up. For additional context, note that price has gone up 6 out of the past 10 days. Price action traders may wish to observe the bearish engulfing pattern that has emerged over the past two trading days; in light of the uptrend on the 14, 90 and 30 day charts this may be particularly noteworthy, as it may signal the uptrend is cooling and ready to reverse.
