LTCUSD is about to break its classic resistance level of 89.41 and Fibonacci resistance level of 90.35, after which the path towards $95 will get cleared.

Litecoin faces resistance at $93.77, which is a 50% retracement from a 4-week High/Low, and at $96.43, at which the price crosses the 9-day moving average.
