LTC and EOS - Indecision



The price of Litecoin has bee on the rise since the 30th of May again after it came down to $157.3 from $207. It reached today $197 at its highest point and is now making a minor pullback.


We have seen the start of the recovery from the 23rd when it fell all the way down to $127 and even lower on the wick to the downside. This is why the recovery seen from there could be the start of the next impulsive move to the upside that is now going to develop in a five-wave manner. On the other hand, this could be another corrective stage with the price making some kind of an ABC correction after further downtrend continuation.

In the first case, we could see a breakout from the currently formed rising flat triangle on the upside which would validate the possibility of the upward momentum. But if the ascending trendline breaks out to the downside it could be an early indication that the price is headed further down below its lowest levels this year.


The price of EOS has been moving sideways from the 30th of May when it fell to $5.5 area from its high of $7.52. Since then it has recovered to $6.67 at its highest point today but is now sitting again lower as it encountered resistance. 

On the hourly chart, you can see that the price has formed a sideways range from the 30th with slight ascending levels. This could be the start of the next impulsive move as a leading diagonal or it could be the 2nd sub-wave of the next move to the downside which is still unclear. This is why it would be safe to say that a breakout beyond its outline levels could provide an early indication of where the price is headed further.

If the price continues increasing and manages to go above the resistance levels this could meant that the price is headed further up, but if its support gets broken we could see further downtrend continuation.
