From Monday when the price of Litecoin was around $46 at the open, measured to its highest point at $58.63, we have seen an increase of 27.52%.
Looking at the hourly chart, you can see that the price has entered the resistance zone once more and has managed to come up to its upper level, even going slightly above it. But since the resistance there was strong the price has started struggling to keep up its bullish momentum.
Previously as we have seen an impulsive move to the upside, which was the Y wave for the WXY correction, I don’t believe that this is the start of a new one. Most likely we are seeing a retest of the previous support for the resistance. Now this happened and I would be expecting a retracement as the price of Litecoin increased by 146.56% from 15th of December when it was around $24.
We might see another attempt for a breakout to the upside, but I wouldn’t expect it to continue for much longer as it will most likely end as a fakeout. According to my count, we have seen the end of the three-wave correction to the upside, so now either a trend continuation should occur or further prolongation of the mentioned correction in a form of the second wave X.
