What to expect from Litecoin price?
Traders should expect Litecoin price to continue in its ascending channel as the technical analyses still show strong bullish momentum in the markets. The suggestion is supported by the positive technical indicators that suggest a bullish breakout above the $275 mark towards the $300 mark. The relatively high trade volume further supports this idea and shows high buying volume.
Conversely, if the Litecoin price fails to break above the $275 mark, LTC would fall back to the $250 mark before finding support. However, even then, it is unlikely to break out of the current ascending channel.
