LTC has been trading in an uptrend and last week the bulls pushed the price above the psychological level of $200 mark and made the high of $214.65. The asset surged almost by 53.5% within a month. However, LTC faced stiff resistance at $215.7 (78.6% Fibonacci Retracement Level) and corrected almost by 11%.

The asset took support at the ascending trendline and the 20-day moving average and has started consolidating in the range of $190 to $200. If the price holds the support then the bulls may resume the up move. If the price breaks the support, then we may expect further downfall and the prices may slide to the next support level of $165.
