Generally, the LTC market is cooling off. Trading at $135, LTC is up two spots to fourth with a market cap of $8.4 billion but down 4.4 percent in the last day. Technically, buyers are in charge. If we factor in the hype element, then it is evident that bulls are in control and every dip is an entry point. From a top-down approach, the path of least resistance is up.
Nonetheless, there is resistance for higher highs. Relative to the upper Bollinger Bands (BB), prices are pointing lower. In a series of lower lows, immediate support is the middle BB and $125.
That is where prices could bounce back from with increasing volumes as demand flows back ahead of August. Still, if sellers press lower as LTC drop below $125, there is opportunity above $100 as long as the snap-back is with high participation. In that case, the first target will be at $150 and later $180.
Technical Indicator
For trend continuation, the bull candlestick signaling the entry of buyers, driving prices above $150 ought to be with high trading volumes. As a result, June 10 candlestick leads this trade plan. Accompanying its extensive range are high participation of 596k. Therefore, if prices retrace to $125 or lower, the correcting candlestick ought to be with high volumes ideally exceeding 596k.
