What to expect from Litecoin price?

4-hour price chart by Tradingview

Traders should expect the Litecoin price action to continue upwards with the recent bullish crossover exhibited by the short-term technical indicators. The Litecoin price should reach a high of $300 before retracing due to the bearish pressure. LTC faces strong resistance at the $300 mark that cannot be broken through with the low momentum and low trade volume that the network is currently observing. As such traders should expect LTC to revisit the $270 mark.
