LTC and EOS - Consolidating Before Further Upside



From yesterday’s high at $60.28 the price of Litecoin has decreased by 9.14% as it came down to the $54.8 level at its lowest point today. The price is currently being traded around $55.84 but is in a downward trajectory overall.


Looking at the hourly chart, we can see that the price came down today to 0.236 Fibonacci level and was supported there. Since this bounce, the price came back to the upper Fib level at 0.382 and has now started testing the ascending trendline from the corrective range for support.

This ascending range is most likely the corrective 4th wave out of the higher degree impulse wave as the 3rd one ended as an interaction with the 0.618 Fibonacci level at $59.86. If this is true we have seen the development of an ABC running flat correction with its B wave coming to retest the high and after finding resistance once again another impulsive move which was the C wave developed today.

As the price has been impulsively increasing since the 21st of October this upside move is expected to continue for another higher high which would be the 5th wave from the Minuette count but it is still unclear whether or not the 4th wave ended today’s downfall.

This is why we are shortly going to receive validation by looking at the price behavior on the current support level as if the price finds support here and continues increasing that would most likely mean that the 4th wave has been completed.


The price of EOS has been moving sideways in these last couple of days after it decreased from $2.742 to $2.6 level on Monday which was a downfall of 5.1%. But since then it made a recovery, spiking up to the level from which the downfall was made and again fell back slightly above Monday’s low.


This sideways action has started developing after an impulsive decline which could have been the completion of the corrective C wave of the ABC count from the 22nd of October when the price ended its lower degree five-wave move. If this is true then this could be a consolidation count and especially so as it started forming a symmetrical triangle.

With its support level being slightly steeper the breakout to the upside looks more probable but there is still a possibility that the corrective count would get extended with further decline ahead. This is why we are going to get a validation from the breakout direction shortly from whose direction we are going to evaluate these possibilities.
