Welcome to the Litecoin Bull Market. Will update soon with fundamental analysis , and closer up details.
Comment: 1 day chart analysis
Comment: 1 day chart analysis:
Comment: 4h chart analysis, there are literally 3 cup and handles at different time frames here which is quite a bullish fractal phenomenon:
Comment: All dips continued to be bought during the btc breakdown...
Comment: ...
Comment: Well, that dump was pretty nuts...I think it's safe to say if you had any stop loss whatsoever you were stopped out...which commonly precedes a big rise...but still plenty of resistance to clear from major MA's, triangle, horizontal resistance. Just a quick update:
Comment: Messing around with/learning EW (can take with a grain of salt):
Comment: Just changed the colors a bit (light blue to dark green), think its a bit clearer this way:
Comment: More EW (again still learning) guess is we just completed wave 3 of wave 3 of overall wave 1 of this coming bull market, sorry for not using the proper terminology lol. So, if I'm correct we should get wave 4 of wave 3 coming, which by the law of alternation would be a deep one, so I could see us testing the black descending trendline and/or rising white trendline (from 1 wk chart). Then maybe a truncated wave 5 of 3 of 1 because the 3rd wave was powerful and it for wave 3 of the overall wave 1 to complete at the 1.618 fib extension would make sense. But who knows just thinking out loud, a lot depends on btc of course, but regardless of EW Litecoin looks to be finally turning around here with that last move which helped the ratio of ltc/btc turn around. Look for the golden cross coming on the daily soon. Also, the development update is already overdue, and can be coming any day/week now, maybe some of this early buying is from someone with insider knowledge who knows. Then after that there is potential for segwit to be supported by the network before btc, but no guarantees, stay tuned!
Comment: It looks like wave 3 of wave 1 is complete...the fifth wave was not truncated (it made new highs)
Comment: Considering the law of alternation...since wave 2 of wave 1 was an abcde would expect a deeper correction for wave 4 or wave 1:
Comment: It would appear wave 4 of 1 is complete...tagged the 50 fib quite nicely, time to go up for wave 5:
Comment: Golden cross on the daily chart:
Comment: It would appear wave 1 is complete...more confirmation when the white trendline breaks:
Comment: Meh it's starting to look like that last count was off as the white trendline held, and btc failed to have even a small dip, so maybe this count was more accurate:   but again I'm a total newb when it comes to EW so take that part of hte analysis as you will...
Comment: Okayy so bitcoin finally did take breather and break down...and thus the white trendline broke on ltc/ it does seem the initial count was right and wave 1 is complete.
Comment: just updated the progress on this one, still waiting on wave 2 completion
Comment: Hey guys, for those still following the newb EW analysis: Considering that bitcoin has not slowed down and thus ltc has gone higher than wave 3--I had to reevaluate things.

I think my mistake was assuming that we were in a truncated 5th wave as opposed to still correcting from wave 3 (which looks like some type of a flat a-b-c correction--shown in dark green). And this actually makes more sense from a time perspective (if the initial count was right than wave 4 would have been too short time wise).

So, anyway, this looks like the most likely count as it leaves more room for upside as we continue on up to complete wave 5 of this overall wave 1 which should terminate somewhere in the 39-57cny range: Of course a lot depends on bitcoin, if bitcoin were to finally come back down for a real correction, the above can still be correct and terminate wave 5 earlier than expected (truncation).
Comment: Didn't go as high as expected, but it does look like the correct count so wave 5 of overall wave 1 is complete:

Considering the time for wave 1, one would expect wave 2 to take at least a few days, a week to complete, maybe more. So maybe some type of complex correction like an abcde triangle. We did have a nice hit of support from the white weekly ascending trendline so ns that we will go lower (could depending on btc and wave 2 can retrace up to 80% so who knows) but regardless should take some time to unfold.

Well see, again just experimenting with this aspect of the analysis. You might say, if you have to keep changing it its not that valuable, and I agree to an extent, but a. still learning/improving b. lets say I do have the right count and we are finishing up with wave 2 now (which seems to be the case) that is actually very valuable information as wave 3 should be very powerful, thus provides a good trade opportunity there.
Comment: If you take a look at the update to the chart above where I illustrated two scenarios for wave looks like the purple version (a-b-c) correction was fairly accurate. It seems wave 2 is close to completion if not already complete--depends on bitcoin (which could still fall lower). Regardless, things are looking uber bullish for litecoin.
Comment: segwit tracker:
Comment: User atombomb makes an interesting point: "Something interesting to note is that the Chinese exchanges just shut down all margin trading which means no more shorting. However all margin positions are still active until closed. I think being in such a long bear market the net ratio of longs to shorts def would be on the short side for ltc which would create a profitable squeeze on the way up"
Comment: It looks like wave 2 is complete (4h chart):
(For more confirmation can wait till we break the 28-30 cny range of resistance)

Wave 3 should be powerful (1d chart):
Comment: Hey guys, just wanted to update. Not much as happened since I last posted, litecoin has been super stable. As I mentioned you could wait for a break of the 28-30 range for more conformation. The big thing that's happened since my last post was obviously the suspending of withdrawals for a month for btc and ltc in China. Since ltc is much more effected by China then other alts, it is something to be wary of.

That being said, it has now been 2-3 weeks since f2 pool committed but stated that we should not expect them to signal for at least a few weeks while they prepare. So, its sort of vague but I would think that should start any week now, who knows, but when they do I expect that should be a good catalyst, which sort of corroborates this chart I put together recently (
Comment: 1 week chart)

The price has good support at these levels, and pressure is building up in terms bbands (as shown by width). Then, as you can see we have the descending pink trendline approaching soon. Which makes for a nice break out when we break through that line.

Now, it's important to note that the price action on chinese exchanges has been a bit strange and not representative of the overall market. So, I guess you can take cny prices w/ a grain of salt until withdrawals are instated. But nonetheless I have been charting this pair so I will share it to illustrate the point.
Comment: If that support does break though there is room for fall, so be careful in that scenario. I don't think its likely, even in bitcoin weakness, but if that weakness is due to a regulatory announcement who knows.
Comment: (been following US$ prices for now, CNY markets seem to have gone off course for both btc and ltc)
my good man! I used to follow you, but this fixation with LTC is just enough for me. Unfollowed you... sorry. Hope that you get your LTC at $50 again. Bye!

@phreakage, I can't fault you for that, I do have a strong believe in it or at least that it has one more bubble left in store, I know many don't love ltc and I can't blame them for that. Appreciate the respectful comment as opposed to some other trolls out there, anyway long term trade but certainly could be wrong. Best of luck to you and in your trades.
@btc_joe, LTC to the moon!, i'll follow you
