Litecoin is one of the biggest cryptocurrency in the crypto-sphere as it is among the top 10 cryptocurrencies. The crypto is often regarded as a lightweight Bitcoin because it is technically almost identical, faster and cheaper than BTC. It is important to note that Litecoin is the 7th largest cryptocurrency according to market capitalization and is carried by different exchanges around the world.
Litecoin / Bitcoin Market Activities and Price Forecasts
The price of LTC has been moving steadily at $60 price mark; however much of its activity is affected by the market activity of Bitcoin. Bitcoin increased recently to $6,800 so did Litecoin.
At the moment, Bitcoin is moving in a steady momentum which makes its price move at the rangebound of $6,200 to $6,580 in the 1-hour market chart. Also on BTC’s 1-hour chart, BTC 20-Period WMA is at $6630. Subsequently, Bitcoin’s MACD is building momentum for a bullish run.
On BTC 4-hour market chart, four resistances have been created from the last bear trend: $7,370, $7000, $6900, and $6700. BTC’s stochastic indicator also shows that Bitcoin is overbought and we may see a bull trend very soon, even though the BTC’s market chart shows it is in a symmetrical triangle.
If Bitcoin breaks out of its symmetrical triangle – out of (E), then that will positively affect the price of Litecoin and help LTC break out of its uptrend.
Bitcoin’s technical analyses are pointing out a bullish prediction in the next few days. However, the overall vital resistances for a breakout are $6800, $7000, and $7300 price marks.
Even though LTC is approaching resistance at 66 (ascending channel’s resistance, 100 percent Fibonacci extension) and a sharp dip might happen below this level dragging price down to the significant support at 57, 76.4 percent Fibonacci retracement, and 100 percent Fibonacci extension, there is still a high possibility that a breakout will occur.
Stochastic (55, 53) is still seeing a bearish divergence and approaching resistance where a reaction below this level might see a corresponding drop in price, but a breakout on Bitcoin will also affect Litecoin.
As regards to price predictions, many crypto analysts have are confident that Litecoin will reach a price of $500. If you are to take a look at Litecoin, you will notice that it is performing well.
At the time of writing, LTC is priced at $59.80 with a market capitalization of $3,504,111,177. Today, lots of institutional investors are investing in cryptocurrency, and as a result, the number of daily transactions on Litecoin has increased.
Based on its price forecast, it is safe to say that now is the right time to invest in Litecoin. Of course, you should not spend more than what you can afford to lose, though – the crypto market is extremely volatile and that’s a fact we should not forget no matter whatever the things point at a given time.
Overall, there is a bullish sentiment that is coming up with Bitcoin and Litecoin, which will have these coins jump to more than their current price.
Bitcoin is expected to go up till the end of the year steadily now. In the case of Litecoin, if it manages to come up above $60 price mark, then, it may move further to $70 or more. Consequently, LTC has been able to hold on to $60 for a few days now; in the coming days, positive things are set to come on the price of LTC – but investors need to be patient.

Bitcoin Volume Improves — Is A New Bull Run About To Start?
After more than half a year of price drops and losses in value, Bitcoin’s price has finally demonstrated signs of stability. For weeks, Bitcoin managed to remain above the price of $6,550 per coin, which was followed by a small price surge that has allowed the coin to reach $6,600.
Not only that, but Bitcoin’s volume also saw a 12% increase that has taken it from $3.2 billion to $3.6 billion according to CoinMarketCap. While this state of the market did not include all the altcoins, with some of them even experiencing losses, the situation regarding Bitcoin did look promising.
However, the new situation has changed that, as both investors and analysts woke up to the news of crypto prices going down.
Bitcoin volume predictions
Cryptocurrency analysts around the world have been predicting that the recently-balanced situation regarding Bitcoin and many altcoins will not last. While some believed that Bitcoin volume will go up, others have been claiming that it will drop once again, as it has finally happened.
At the moment, Bitcoin has managed to drop below what was recently believed to be its bottom, with a new price being at $6,297. Instead of reaching milestones such as $6,800, and then $7,000 mark as many have hoped, BTC actually dropped by around 6%.
For a while, Bitcoin has been showing signs that it is ready to grow once more. However, the trouble once again lies with the…
Ripple, Ethereum, Bitcoin, and the crypto-markets all down, why?
Today, the crypto-world woke up in a bloodbath, creating a lot of panic for the investors. Despite the expectations from 2018 Q4, the crypto-market is showing no sign of recovery as only one cryptocurrency in the top 50 is green at the moment.
Cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin, Ethereum, and Ripple (XRP), are all suffering in the dips and from the weight of the bears. It is important to know that as a result of today’s bearish trend, the market has laid off more than 5 percent of its value (US$13 billion) in the past 24 hours.
In the past 24 hours, Bitcoin has gone down by 4.26%, and it is currently trading at $6,289. So-called BTC competitors have accumulated bigger losses: Ethereum, Ripple, Bitcoin Cash, EOS, Stellar, and Litecoin. Ethereum is down more than 11 percent, trading at $201.15; Ripple’s XRP in red by more than 13 percent, trading at $0.4047.
Bitcoin Cash price has also crashed more than 11.5 percent, trading at $450.91; EOS is down by 9.91 percent, trading at $5.30; Stellar has plunged by more than 11.8 percent, trading at $0.213; and Litecoin is currently in red by 9.50 percent, trading at $52.28. In short, the whole market in a severe bloodbath, pretty much like the global market.
Are Bitcoin Whales Stabilizing the Market?
Bitcoin whales, which is a popular term for BTC’s largest holders, have always been the largest influencers on Bitcoin’s price. In fact, many analysts, experts, and even regular investors have been tracking what the whales are doing. Their actions were taken as an indication of what’s to come, and whenever a whale was about to sell BTC, a drop in price was soon to follow.
This has earned them a reputation of the market’s largest destabilizers, which did not make them especially popular in the crypto community. However, according to new data, it is more than possible that Bitcoin whales are actually working on keeping the market stable, instead of causing more chaos, as everyone was led to believe.
Bitcoin whales are keeping the market in check?
Earlier this year, in August, a new rumor appeared, claiming that a $2 billion whale was disrupting the market’s already fragile stability. Reports of BTC sales as high as 50,000 coins per month have caused a 15% drop in Bitcoin’s own value. Speculation regarding these sales followed, with whispers of shadowy deals dominating the discussion forums.
Bitcoin investors, large and small, felt threatened by these giant holders, with many of them believing that the entire crypto world could collapse on their smallest whim. In order to determine whether these fears were justified or not, an intensive analysis was conducted. The analysis has targeted 32 largest known whales, with attempts to find…
