Litecoin Analysis

Litecoin’s price was pushed lower by sellers yesterday and LTC finished the day -$1.49. 

The LTC/USD 8HR chart from Setupsfx_ shows that LTC’s price clearly began its uptrend before the majority of the cryptocurrency field.

If bullish Litecoin traders can exceed the $90 level their primary target is the $107 level on the 8HR timescale. 

The current uptrend on Litecoin’s 8HR chart dates back to mid-December 2022 and bullish market participants are hoping it’s an indication of things to come for the aggregate cryptocurrency market.
