For the day ahead
Litecoin would need to move through the $195 pivot to bring the first major resistance level at $209 into play.
Support from the broader market would be needed, however, for Litecoin to break back through to $200 levels.
Barring an extended crypto rally, the first major resistance level and Thursday’s high $208.98 would likely cap any upside.
In the event of an extended breakout, Litecoin could test resistance at $230. The second major resistance level sits at $223.
Failure to move through the $195 pivot would bring the first major support level at $180 into play.
Barring an extended sell-off, however, Litecoin should steer clear of the 62% FIB of $174. The second major support level sits at $166.
A sustained fall through the 62% FIB of $174 would form a near-term bearish trend from 10th May’s swing hi $413.91.
