A signal has appeared – across several of the highest timeframes – that could suggest that the long downtrend against Bitcoin is about to come to an explosive ending.
Litecoin Loses Luster During Bear Market, Can’t Catch A Spark
Few coins have had as difficult of a time recovering since the last bull market as Litecoin has. The only other coin in the top ten to struggle so severely is XRP, and the coin’s parent company Ripple is locked in a legal battle with the SEC.
Litecoin has no such issue to keep its prices down, yet the coin has yet to do much better than its 2019 peak, and is not even halfway recovered to its previous all-time high around $418 per LTC.
Meanwhile, Ethereum just smashed above $2,000 and Bitcoin is trading at around $60,000 per coin – more than three times its former high.
The rise in Bitcoin but subsequent stagnancy in Litecoin, has caused the altcoin to absolutely nosedive in terms of the LTCBTC trading pair. But with a handful of potential reversal signals forming on the ratio, things soon could turn around for an extended phase.
Following a bear market bounce, the altcoin fell for another consecutive 25 months, ignoring another TD 9 and instead reaching a TD 13 countdown on monthly timeframes. Coinciding with a narrowing pattern on the Relative Strength Index, an explosive breakout is imminent.
Both a TD 9 and TD 13 signal suggest a trend is reaching a point of exhaustion, and due to turn around. And it already has since the daily TD 9 triggered.
The LTCBTC pair is now higher, and there’s green forming in a sea of red finally. If the tides finally turn, and Bitcoin maintains relatively high prices, the cost per Litecoin could explode as it finally plays catch up with the likes of its digital gold counterpart, Ethereum, and the rest of the altcoin space.
