LTC and EOS - Parabolic increase could end shortly



From last Thursday when the price of Litecoin was sitting at $41 we have seen an increase of 23.42% measured to its highest point today at $50.63. The price is being traded slightly lower and is still in an upward trajectory.

LTC and EOS - Parabolic increase could end shortlyLooking at the hourly chart, we can see that the increase was made in a parabolic manner from Tuesday, breaking well above some key resistance point with strong bullish momentum. We have seen the formation of the five-wave structure from the 21st of April which is making this parabolic increase it’s ending wave. There is still more room to go but the price has come to the vicinity of the previous downside move cluster resistance is starting to encounter the next halt.

If this is the ending, 5th wave out of the impulse to the upside the price could continue increasing for a bit longer to the $52.4 horizontal level but shortly after a descending move should start. This descending move is likely to be an ABC Zigzag correction but it is still unclear whether or not it could be a sub-wave from the higher degree impulse out of which this one would be its 3rd wave. In either way considering the way price increased it’s unsustainability would prove it’s weakness on the way down which is why the start of the descending movement will be marked by a significant decline.

Most likely we are to see another increase as a spike to the upside with even stronger momentum but eventually, the equal amount of decrease as the price enters the seller’s territory and activates the seller’s pressure.


The price of EOS has increased by 20.3% from last Thursday when it was sitting at $2.58 as it came up to $3.1 at it’s highest point today. Currently, it is being traded slightly lower but has maintained above the $3 mark.

LTC and EOS - Parabolic increase could end shortlyOn the hourly chart, you can see a similar pattern to that of Litecoin with the price making a parabolic rise since the start of the week. Looking at the wave structure it appears that this could be the ending wave out of the five-wave impulse from the 21st but as in the case of Litecoin it could only be the 3rd from the higher degree one. The price is hovering around the half range between two significant horizontal levels so in the upcoming period we can see interaction with the upper one at $3.27, however, I don’t believe that the price is headed there in a straight line.

More likely we are to see a more significant pullback, potentially to around $2.9 area or even a retest of the broken resistance, before the uptrend continues.
