The Hourly View for LTC

Last Updated September 30, 2020, 19:15 GMT

Currently, LTC’s price is down $-0.06 (-0.13%) from the hour prior. This is the 3rd consecutive hour LTC has seen its price head down. 1 Price action traders may also wish to note that we see a doji candlestick pattern on LTC. Given that we see an uptrend on the 20 hourly candle timeframe, and that such candlestick patterns often denote reversals, this may be worth noting. The moving averages on the hourly timeframe suggest a choppiness in price, as the 20, 50, 100 and 200 are all in a mixed alignment — meaning the trend across timeframes is inconsistent, indicating a potential opportunity for rangebound traders.
