Litecoin price prediction positive scenario
On April 4, 2019 Litecoin (LTC) made a high price near the level of $99. It has retraced and as Of April 5, 2019 the current price is about $87.20. We notice a strong uptrend as indicated by the ADX/DMI indicator, rising 50-day and 20-day exponential moving averages and rising MACD indicator and Momentum indicator.
Our first target for April 2019 is the retest of the $99 price level and the level of $110 back in May 2018. On the weekly chart our price target is near $112, a very strong former support zone back in 2018.
Litecoin price prediction negative scenario
On the weekly chart Stochastics indicator is now within overbought levels. And on the daily chart it has formed a negative divergence and a bearish crossover. The uptrend however is very strong.
There is strong resistance at the $90-$92 price levels, and at the $110 price level. If this recent rally is to take a pause, then a retracement to the price levels of $57-$64 is probable. The current price of 50-day exponential moving average at $57.57 should provide a strong support. Our next target in case retracement is even deeper would be the price zone of $42-$48.
Litecoin price forecast conclusion for April 2019
A breakout for Litecoin in early April 2019 tends to favor the optimistic or bullish scenario. We believe that this rally should be monitored, and a retracement is very likely. We cannot rule out a price decline back to the support zone near $62 and then an attempt for a continuation of the uptrend and a retest of the $99 high price on April 4, 2019.
