The price of Litecoin has been on the rise since Tuesday when it came down to $104.9 at its lowest point. From there we have seen an increase of 27% as it reached $133.3 at its highest point today. Currently, it is trading slightly lower but is still in an upward trajectory.
On the hourly chart, we can see that the price fell into a lower low compared to the May 23rd one and spiked to the upside, reaching the broken downtrend support which is being now tested for resistance. If the price finds resistance here another move to the downside would be expected, but only as a pullback before further upside continuation. This is so because on the 22nd we have most likely seen the end of the corrective five-wave move from the 27th of May so now a move to the upside like it developed from the 23rd till the 27th would be expected.
The price could now increase as much as 35% but it would be expected to go lower than on the 27th when it came up to $209. This is because the price made a lower low which is why a lower high would be more likely. Another possibility could be that we have seen the start of a completely new impulse wave to the upside and that the 22nd of June’s low was the completion of the higher degree down move. But this is going to be validated from the type of descending move we see after this expected rise.
EOS was on a decline from the 15th of June when it was sitting at $5.384 and made a decrease of 42.6% measured to its lowest point on Tuesday at $3.08. From there we have seen an increase of 23.45% as its came up to $3.84 at its highest point today so far.
Tuesday’s low is most likely the end of the descending move from the 27th of May when we saw the initial recovery after a steep downfall on the 23rd. The price made a lower low which could now be the second sub-wave of the higher degree three-wave correction with another rise like from the 23rd till the 27th of May now taking place. Or it could be an ending point of the prior highest degree downtrend starting on the 12th of May when the price of EOS reached $14.8 which was it’s yearly high.
