Litecoin has been trading in a directionless chop for the past three days, but if we take a closer look, we can see that price is actually bouncing between some very distinct technical areas. For example, the $3.06 area has propped up the market about five times since the 21st of January. And if we look back to January 16, it’s not hard to see why price is being supported at $3.06 – this level also acted as resistance three times on that day. The $3.06 area is a major pivot zone now!
There is another very significant pivot zone that is not so visible on the 1-hour chart, but is more apparent on the 30-minute chart. The $3.14 level acted as resistance three times between the 22nd and 23rd. Litecoin broke above $3.14 on the 24th, and this area then turned in support, supporting price about four times. Price plunged underneath $3.14 today, so this level is very likely to act as resistance to any future retracements.
