Can Litecoin move to higher price levels than the current price of about $55 as of March 8, 2019?

Litecoin price prediction positive scenario

With the recent price action, a very optimistic trend exists for Litecoin with the potential for higher price levels in March 2019. Litecoin restested the high price level of $56.35 initially formed back in November 2018, a V-shape trend reversal. We have a strong trend, measured by the ADX/DMI indicator, the MACD indicator is moving up, both 20-day and 50-day exponential moving averages are rising, and now the former price level of $40 should be a strong support in the case of any price retracement. If the rally continues then some key target levels are $74, $94 and $101.

The weekly chart is also bullish but there is a strong resistance at the price level of $61-$62. We are concerned that after such a strong rally some profit taking may soon appear in the market. This profit taking will not change our positive estimate that there are increased odds for higher prices for Litecoin, unless price closes below the 50-period exponential moving average, with a recent price of $42.40. A retracement for Litecoin at the range of $42-$45 is probable before attempting to rise to the $70-$74 price level.

Litecoin price prediction negative scenario

What if a double top is formed near the price level of $55? We note a negative divergence for MACD histogram as Litecoin moved higher from $46.50 to $57.84 as of today, March 7, 2019. This negative divergence may act as a very early alarming signal that profit taking could appear soon for Litecoin.

The price level of $57-$59 is a strong resistance level on the weekly chart. In addition, Litecoin price has reached the upper weekly Bollinger band, which often acts as a resistance zone. We do not think that Litecoin could move to the lower weekly Bollinger band currently at about $21.33. We estimate that a pause for this rally could lead to lower prices, near the price levels of $44-$42. Also, the 50-day exponential moving average currently at $42.30 is another price target to the downside.

Litecoin price forecast conclusion for March 2019

We favor mostly the optimistic scenario. However, some profit taking is very probable at the current price of $55.
