Cryptocurrency Trading News: Bitcoin, Litecoin in Sideway Trend

ForexMiniute.com – Last 24 hours in the cryptocurrency market have been pretty average, as both Bitcoin and Litecoin trended in a sideways direction, while remaining bearish. Look further to know more.

BTC/USD

CTN1.1

After failing to break above the key resistance area around 340, the BTC/USD continued to remain in a bearish bias, which eventually got stronger with more selling pressure. The pair however rebounded from 311 and is now trending sideways below the daily moving average, thanks to a choppy trading volume.

The technical indicators further indicate a strong bearish presence in the market. The BTC/USD, currently valued around 314, is way too below its 200-, 100- and 50-hours SMA while the RSI is near 35. So far, the last two SMAs are acting like resistance to keep price from falling into a near-term bullish correction. Below these levels, the chances of Bitcoin to test the 311, and ultimately the 275-support area, are likely.

In case BTC/USD manages to break above 323, the bullish outlook will still be limited to around 340.

LTC/USD

CTN1.2

Compared to Bitcoin, Litecoin price trend seems to be flatter. The LTC/USD, currently priced at 2.69, is clearly below the 200-, 100-, 50-hours SMA, while the RSI is around 44. It overall indicates a bearish sentiment in the market. Though, due to an almost similar buying and selling pressure, the price is currently trending sideways, waiting to go either ways once the pressure shifts either on bears or bulls.

The bears are likely to continue to dominate the Litecoin market in the next 24 hours, while attempting to break below the support level around 2.60, with downside risk towards November’s low 2.21. However in case the price manages to rise above the presumed resistance level around 2.75, a near-term bullish correction is likely to follow while treating 3.00 as the next key-resistance line.

Other Cryptocurrency
In over last 24 hours, the altcoin market has also been relatively stable. While Darkcoin and Dogecoin have fallen only by a minimum 0.5%, Peercoin and NXT have surged around 1-2% within the same time span.
