The Hourly View for LTC

Currently, LTC’s price is up $0.31 (0.11%) from the hour prior. This is the 2nd hour in a row LTC has seen its price head up. 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 LTC. Given that we see downtrend 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 bearishness in price, as the 20, 50, 100 and 200 are all in a bearish alignment — meaning the shorter duration moving averages are below the longer duration averages, implying a stable downward trend.

  • From MuroCrypto:

    The old majors like Ethereum, Litecoin and Ripple likely go up to old highs in BTC value. It’s also realistic to expect cult coins like Verge, Siacoin and Digibyte to do the same. Doge was the start of the biggest altseason.We will make history. It will pump

  • From brucefenton:

    If you move a Litecoin from Coinbase to Gemini it works and is confirmed quickly with no other party involved. The blockchain confirms the ledger.If you move a share of stock from Robinhood to Fidelity it takes several days and has to be confirmed by a trusted 3rd party. Slow.

  • From BuckArmy:

    I bought 2 litecoin’s 3 years ago for $320 a piece and it proceeded to crash. I found my password last month and I’m officially up $10 I bought a Mickeys 40 for $3 today to celebrate. Good luck with your investments lol
