Litecoin Price Analysis: LTC/USD’s Bounce Could Fade Soon

Looking at the chart, LTC price extended losses and traded as low as $47.03. Later, buyers appeared and pushed the price above the $48.00 level. The price started a decent recovery and moved above the $50.00 resistance.

There was a break above the 50% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $56.50 swing high to $47.03 low. Moreover, there was a break above a connecting bearish trend line with resistance at $51.80 on the hourly chart of the LTC/USD pair.

The price even moved above the $52.00 level, but it seems like the price is struggling to gain traction above the $53.00 level and the 100 hourly simple moving average. Additionally, there is another bearish trend line positioned with resistance at $54.20 on the same chart.

Finally, the 76.4% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $56.50 swing high to $47.03 low is at $54.29. Therefore, the price is likely to find a strong resistance near the $54.20 and $55.00 levels.

There could be a minor downside reaction back towards the $51.50 and $50.00 levels where buyers are likely to take a stand. If they fail, the price is likely to resume its decline back towards the $47.00 level.

Overall, litecoin price has recovered nicely, but it won’t be easy for buyers to surpass $54.00 and $55.00.
