For the day ahead
Litecoin would need to move back through the $157 pivot to bring the first major resistance level at $169 into play.
Support from the broader market would be needed, however, for Litecoin to out from Tuesday’s high $164.58.
Barring an extended crypto rally, the first major resistance level would likely cap any upside.
In the event of an extended breakout, Litecoin could test resistance at the 62% FIB of $174 and the second major resistance level at $176.
Failure to move back through the $157 pivot would bring the first major support level at $149 into play.
Barring another extended sell-off, however, Litecoin should steer clear of sub-$140 levels. The second major support level sits at $138.
A sustained fall through the 62% FIB of $174 would form a near-term bearish trend from 10th May’s swing hi $413.91.
