LTC/USDT price chart
Michäel van de Poppe, crypto analyst and trader believes LTC is ready for a bullish breakout and it is open for a long with the target of $78.39 and $85.03. With sustained buying, Litecoin could continue to rise and break past the upper trendline, a close above the $80 level could validate the bullish thesis.
Litecoin is set to face resistances between $80 and $101. The asset could find support at the 50-day EMA at $73.48 and 200-day EMA at $70.84. Below the $70 level, the payment token could nosedive to support at $63.7.
The outlook on Litecoin is therefore bullish for the week and a decline below the $71, the lower trendline of the ascending channel would imply a bearish trend reversal in the token.
