The Litecoin price broke out from a long-term resistance line, indicating that it has begun a bullish trend with a volume-supported breakout. When Bitcoin dropped, this resistance turned to support, and the level was quickly defended. The Litecoin price is expecting a further move in the coming weeks to $72 and $84. While comparing with large-cap cryptocurrencies, litecoin usually has a lot of space to catch up.

The technical analysis indicates that Litecoin is likely to develop an uptrend pattern in the coming days If Bitcoin price continues to move in a positive direction. 

While the MACD on the daily chart remained at 57 during the press time, the Relative Strength Index or RSI is moving up steadily and has enough room for going much higher than that. The chart shows that the Litecoin price is trading above a very strong support level of $52.
