Litecoin Blasts Through $200 Barrier

Litecoin continued its bullish run this week, blasting through the $200 barrier during the past 48 hours and hitting a weekly high of $236.30 earlier today. The coin is now on another bullish trend as it moves up to test a major resistance of $224.

A downward trend line was formed just prior to the bullish run, but it managed to hold a support at around $208. Trading volume has also gathered pace, leading to an increase in buy-side pressure.

Today’s price actions have resulted in LTC price going up by more than 50% over the past week. In fact, LTC is leading the market-wide cryptocurrency recovery in terms of percentage gains among the top 10 digital currencies.

Another factor contributing to Litecoin’s rapid resurgence is rumors surrounding an upcoming fork called Litecoin Cash. However, Litecoin founder Charlie Lee later squashed those rumors, calling it a “scam” designated to confuse Litecoin owners. Litecoin investors will surely want to keep an eye on this story moving forward.

However, there is no doubt that Litecoin is on the up again with or without this purported Litecoin fork. As for the technicals, there was a bullish signal coming from the MACD graph at the beginning of the bull run. Should LTC break above $230 again, the next move could take us to $250 and even beyond.

Looking at the Technical Indicators:

  • Hourly MACD — LTC/USD is now in a bullish zone
  • Major Resistance Level — $224
  • Major Support Level — $208
