Anonymous trader Julio_LTC has set support for LTC at $280 with a price target set at $330. The operator is bullish as LTC climbed in the Relative Strength Index (RSI), a measure used to assess price momentum, in the lower timeframes. If the price action gets invalidated $218 could operate as critical support, as shown below.

LTC seems to be correlated with Ethereum’s performance rather than Bitcoin, as usual, according to the trader. Therefore, Litecoin’s rally could experience a cool-off or further appreciation if ETH leads the price action. If LTC hits its target, it could see stronger momentum towards a higher price. The trader added:

I dont believe we’ll see $7000+ this year but I do believe $LTC can go into the $3000-$5000 range. #LTC is a late game player.

Trader Crypto Tony is equally bullish after LTC broke the $289 resistance. The trader said:

Litecoin is going to run so hard it is going to mentally affect those left behind. Bags are packed and ready for launch. The BTC pair tells a story and I want us all to be a part of that story

As the chart shows, if LTC rallies there could be major resistance at $314 to $322, $332, and $340. As mentioned, investors should keep a close eye on ETH’s performance for a potential breakout. At the moment, Ethereum’s rally seems to be cooling off but holds potential for another leg-up.
