For the day ahead
Litecoin would need to move through the $54.99 pivot to support a run at the first major resistance level at $56.53.
Support from the broader market would be needed, however, for Litecoin to break back through to $56 levels.
Barring an extended crypto rally, the first major resistance level would likely cap any upside.
In the event of a breakout, Litecoin would likely test resistance the second major resistance level at $58.10 before any pullback.
Failure to move through the $54.99 pivot level would bring the 23.6% FIB of $54 and the first major support level at $53.42 into play.
Barring another extended sell-off on the day, however, Litecoin should steer clear of sub-$50 levels. The second major support level at $51.88 should limit any downside.
