LTC and EOS - recovery seen but for how long?

LTC/USD

From Mondays low at $42.76 the price of Litecoin has increased by 13.61% measured to its highest point at $48.58 made yesterday. The price is currently being traded at $47.451 as a minor retracement has occurred of around 2.16%.

LTC and EOS - recovery seen but for how long?

Looking at the hourly chart, we can see that the price of Litecoin found support on the 1.272 Fib level on Monday’s low after a decrease of 33.88% measured from its highest point on the 10. November at $64.66. This has most likely been the end of the decrease after a breakout from the ascending triangle with the price making a lower low.

As a lower low was made compared to the one at $47.8 on the 23rd of October the count in which we have seen the starting impulse wave to the upside was invalidated. This means that the price of Litecoin is undergoing another corrective move which is a three-wave one to the upside. In that case, the new seen increase is its developing 3rd wave after which the price will continue moving to the downside establishing further lows.

This will be evaluated from the expected increase which is to develop in a five-wave manner and likely below the previous high somewhere around the 0.382 Fibonacci level where the significant horizontal support also was.

EOS/USD

The price of EOS was sitting at $2.357 at its lowest point on Monday from where we have seen an increase of 15.76% measured to its highest point yesterday at $2.7288. A minor retracement has occurred with the price currently sitting slightly lower than yesterday but is above the previous minor high retesting its resistance for support.

LTC and EOS - recovery seen but for how long?

On the hourly chart, we can see that like in the case of Litecoin the price made a lower low compared to the one at $2.66 which is actually currently being tested for resistance. This means that the corrective stage still hasn’t ended and that further lows could be expected before its completion.

The decrease seen after a breakout from the ascending triangle is considered the third wave out of the ABC correction to the downside which is the Z wave of a higher degree. If this is true, then the C wave should develop in a five-wave manner which I don’t believe that it has which is why I would be expecting an interaction with some of the horizontal support levels below. The most significant horizontal level is at $1.617 at it’s December 2018 low but I don’t believe that the price could go there in a straight line.

More likely the decrease would end somewhere in the $2 area as if we project the length of the A wave on to the B wave’s ending point, the target for the C wave ends in that zone.
