LTC/USD 4-hour chart – LTC looking to retest previous resistance as a support

The overall market price action continues its way to set a higher major high above the $290 mark. After losing more than 30 percent during the second half of April, Litecoin established support around a $220-$230 area and started moving higher again.

Litecoin had already reached the $260 mark in the middle of this week, where a several-day consolidation was formed. Considering the previous market structure, this was a bearish sign, and bears expected further downside. However, on the 30th of April, LTC moved higher and set another local higher high just below the $280 price level as mentioned in our previous Litecoin price prediction.

Over the past hours, the Litecoin price action retraced to the $265 mark again. Since no further downside was made, we can assume that bulls will try to push the market higher over the next 24 hours. The next target to break is located at the $290 level, where Litecoin set the previous major swing high on the 22nd of April. 

Once the $290 level is broken, LTC/USD price action would confirm a change in the medium-term trend. This should lead Litecoin towards the next major target at $335 later this month.

Litecoin Price Prediction: Conclusion 

Litecoin price prediction is bullish as Litecoin is set to continue higher along with the several-day bullish momentum after retesting previous highs as support. Therefore, Litecoin should reach the next price target of $290 early next week.
