As Bitcoin trend higher, Litecoin continued to follow a downward movement after five weeks of trading. This revealed that bearish dominance is strong. The sellers are moving trade in a descending wedge pattern. As soon as price actions reach the end of the wedge, Litecoin may break-out.


For a break-out, the coin is more likely to break-up as this wedge pattern commonly follows a bullish move. The potential resistance for the buyers is the 0.014BTC level and above. Following a low break, however, the 0.011BTC and 0.01BTC may be visited.

The 4-hours RSI is currently revealed on a side-way move – a sign for a consolidation. Additionally, the 4-hours MACD is in a negative zone maintaining the four weeks bearish move.
