The Hourly View for LTC

Last Updated January 1, 2021, 23:17 GMT

Currently, Litecoin’s price is down $-0.03 (-0.02%) from the hour prior. This is a reversal of the price action on the previous hour, in which price moved up. Regarding the trend, note that the strongest trend exists on the 20 hour timeframe. Price action traders may also wish to note that we see a pin bar candlestick pattern on Litecoin. Given that we see downtrend on the 20 hourly candle timeframe, and that such candlestick patterns often denote reversals, this may be worth noting. The moving averages on the hourly timeframe suggest a choppiness in price, as the 20, 50, 100 and 200 are all in a mixed alignment — meaning the trend across timeframes is inconsistent, indicating a potential opportunity for rangebound traders.

The Man Who Gave It All Up for Litecoin – Decrypt

Menu Reading Search About In August 2018, John Kim sold his house and gave the proceeds to his wife….I believe the best way to get people into crypto is to show them an example and let them experience it for themselves,” Kim told Decrypt on a recent call from Texas, where he is weathering the coronavirus storm.  He’s still homeless, has been criticized for being foolhardy and reckless, and admits that cryptocurrencies played a big part in the breakup of his marriage….Together with his wife, Kim had begun to invest in Bitcoin and Ethereum in 2017, and became increasingly drawn into the cryptocurrency world—much to the consternation of his family and friends.  Litecoin, in particular, attracted his attention….That’s how I was able to take 10 grand and build 15 businesses.”  In Kim’s mind, going all-in on cryptocurrency presented the only opportunity to change the trajectory of not only his own life but the lives of his two sons….Next year, said Kim emphatically, Litecoin will hit three digits—at the very least….Whether LTC reaches triple digits or not next year, one thing is for sure, per Kim, “I know nobody is willing to go as far as I’m going to go to show the world.” Read on the Decrypt App for the best experience.
