Litecoin has traded within a narrow range since it’s 100% rally of a few days ago. Regular readers will note that in the previous column we suggested that price would likely be constrained a few days until pricetime can escape from the confines of the 4th arc pair (green). Well, price is bumping along the arc as these words speak, so unless there is a sudden reversal here (not expected) price will likely close on the sunny side of the arcs in the near future (in 48 hours or less).

Once we get that buy signal there will likely be be a very quick and significant move to the upside. Aggressive traders might take a long position with a reasonable stop here. But more patient traders will wait for the buy signal, even though that will likely mean buying at a higher price.

As I am not a big fan of Ripple (for reasons that may not be well-enough informed) I was not watching this asset. Notified of the rally I looked at the chart and was impressed by the chart. As you can see, pricetime was stopped by the 3rd arc pair of this longer-term setup. As I am writing, it looks like price wants to get above that arc. My guess is that it will do so, though a buy signal has not yet been given.

The 5th arc is all the way up to .03856, and chart geometry suggests that it is likely to get there in a week’s time (assuming that the present 3rd arc resistance yields).

Bitcoin touched the arc and withdrew, as shown above. Overall,despite the recent rally, it is still not giving a buy signal. There is an ‘energy point’ in a day or two (purple line). If price is at or above the arc, a rally is likely. But if price is below the arc, another decline is more likely. We will see…

    I like your analytics, it confirms me often and helps me to understand what’s going on here. I already invested in LTC, but because of your analytics I doubled my investment, thank you for that.

      Grats man, I was watching LTC before reading Jim’s style of analysis which is helping me more in the short term for sure- but I didn’t double my investment, despite doing nicely.

    Hi Jim,

    Ripple just reached your prediction in a les than 10hours. Where are we heading now? Is this sustainable market growth or are we in for massive correction?

      I would actually love answers to these questions as well. Ripple hit 0.044 USD which, if I see correctly on the chart, reached the 5th arc pair and then went down a bit.
      The correction must come sooner or later right?

    Ripple is at 5th arc as commented above, is it wise now to take profits? Also LTC is past 8.5 how far do you think it can run before a correction? It also looks like bitcoin is soon to pass all time highs.

    How far do you think LTC can run once it passes the 4 arc pair?

    Thank you for the kind words. I am awestruck by the speed and magnitude of Ripple’s rally. My take-profit order was filled long before the top was reached. I will surely look at Ripple again in my next column. As for me, I have no burning desire to buy again at these levels. The rally could of course resume again, but it seems more likely that a correction is due. We will see…
