Litecoin’s price may rise in the short-term after breach of falling wedge
The cryptocurrency market has been registering bullish price action since the price pump of 25 October, a pump which saw Bitcoin and major altcoins register double-digit gains. Litecoin, which has been struggling since its block reward halving and had no support for its prices at that point, also gained a new lease of life due to that pump which was led by Bitcoin.
At press time, Litecoin was trading at $59.49 and had registered a price growth of 2.21% on the 24-hour chart. The short-term movement of the altcoin formed a bullish pattern, a breach from which would push its prices further into the green.
