LTC and EOS - Descending Channel Ending Soon



The price of Litecoin has been decreasing since the start of the month when it came up to $93. Measured to its lowest point of the month made yesterday at $74.45 we have seen a decrease of 20%. The price is currently being traded around the levels of yesterday’s low, but it appears that it found support there and is now looking to start increasing again.


On the hourly chart, you can see that the price of Litecoin formed a descending channel from the start of the month with yesterday’s low being a retest of its support level. Now as the price has managed to stay on the same levels as on its lowest yesterday and didn’t make a lower one, before finding some support we could be seeing the start of the upside move that is to propel the price at least to the channels resistance level.

On Tuesday we have seen a breakout below the significant $78.442 horizontal support level, today the price tested it for resistance and found it, which is why we have seen another descending move. This is why we could still see lower lows before the ending of the descending channel formation in which case the price would most likely go to the 1.618 Fib level.


Since the start of the month, the price of EOS has decreased by 18.8%, coming from its high at $3.334 on December 1st to $2.70 on its yesterday’s low. Currently, the price is being traded at $2.7567 and is moving slowly to the downside.


Looking at the hourly chart, we can see a similar pattern like in the case of Litecoin as a descending channel was formed. Inside the channel, we have seen a five-wave structure developing which could be a lower degree ABCDE or an impulse five-wave but like an ending diagonal.

Since the structure appears near completion the current descending move could be the 2nd wave out of the next five-wave move to the upside that is set to push the price for a breakout to the upside. If that is the case then the price can’t go below the level of yesterday’s low, which is why the $2.71 area serves as a pivot point.
