Cryptocurrency Analysis: Litecoin Blows Through $60

Introduction

This article was posted on Monday, 22:25, UTC.

The crypto segment has a calm day so far as the most valuable coins are little changed, with a few exceptions. Litecoin and Monero are the biggest movers so far, being up by 8% and 5% respectively. Monero has been in a strong uptrend for more than a week now, while Litecoin finally broke out to a new all-time high after a fairly long consolidation period. The coin rose above $60 after clearing last week’s failed break-out top, as we expected in our long-term report over the weekend. The currency is still bullish, with the long-term momentum not being overbought yet, and the next target for the move being just above $70.

Bitcoin

BTC/USD, 4-Hour Chart Analysis

Bitcoin is still trading in a narrow range below its all-time high, with progressively declining volumes. The low-volatility environment could point to a short-term push higher, but we still expect a deeper correction in the currency after the monster rally since mid-July. Crucial support levels are found at the $4000 price level, near $3800, $3500, and $3150.

Ethereum

ETH/USD, 4-Hour Chart Analysis

ETH has been positively diverging from BTC over the weekend after a period of strong correlation and the coin is now on a new swing high, just below the $350 level. A move towards $380 is still expected in the coming period, even as the crypto rally is in its latter stages. The coin is still not dangerously overbought but new all-time highs might be out of reach during this leg up. Strong support is still found at $300 and near $285.

 

Dash

DASH/USD, 4-Hour Chart Analysis

Dash is back near the prior swing high after touching $400 during the weekend, as the coin remains inside the rising short-term trend. The currency is clearly overbought after the huge rally, and we expect a move back below $300 in the coming weeks. Strong support is found at $300, and near $266. Investors should wait with opening new positions until the overbought condition is cleared.

Ripple

XRP/USD, 4-Hour Chart Analysis

Ripple surged higher today after the deep pull-back that followed last week’s break-out. The coin remains bullish both short-and long term after the lengthy consolidation, but several strong resistance levels are still ahead. The recent high near $0.30 is the most important level to watch, while the all-time high is still far away at $0.43. Support is found near the current levels, at $0.20 and at $0.18.

Ethereum Classic

ETC/USD, 4-Hour Chart Analysis

Ethereum Classic failed to move above $16 once again, as it remains the weakest major regarding the current rally. Above the $16 level, the coin faces resistance at $18 and near $23, while strong support is still found around the $14 level.

Monero

XMR/USD, 4-Hour Chart Analysis

Monero briefly moved above $150 today but it dipped back below the previous swing high later on, warning of a possible bull trap. Traders should be cautious given the long-term overbought readings, with the short-term trendline currently near $140 providing a good stop-loss level. Short-term support is found near $125 with the further levels at $100, $80, and $68.

NEM

NEM/BTC, 4-Hour Chart Analysis

NEM has shown some signs of relative strength lately, but there hasn’t been another powerful move higher in the BTC pair so far. The broad trading range around the 0.000065 level is still intact. Strong support is found near 0.0000575 and 0.000048, while resistance is ahead at 0.000075.

NEO

NEO/USDT, 4-Hour Chart Analysis

NEO NEM is testing short-term support at $38 after failing to stay above the line-in-the-sand support/resistance zone around at $40. The coin remains bullish for now, but a sustained move below $38 would be a bearish sign. Primary support is still found near the, while above $40 another resistance zone is found near $47.50.
