For the day ahead
Litecoin would need to avoid the $161 pivot to bring the first major resistance level at $177 and the 23.6% FIB of $178 into play.
Support from the broader market would be needed, however, for Litecoin to break out from Monday’s high $171.00.
Barring an extended crypto rally, the first major resistance level and resistance at the 23.6% FIB of $178 would likely cap any upside.
In the event of an extended breakout, Litecoin could test resistance at $190 before any pullback. The second major resistance level at sits $187.
A fall through the $161 pivot would bring the first major support level at $151 into play.
Barring an extended sell-off, however, Litecoin should steer clear of sub-$150 levels. The second major support level sits at $135.
