Last Updated April 29, 2021, 02:046 GMT

At the moment, LTC’s price is down $-1.49 (-0.58%) from the hour prior. This is a reversal of the price action on the previous hour, in which price moved up. Regarding the trend, note that the strongest trend exists on the 100 hour timeframe. Regarding moving averages, it should first be noted that price has crossed the 20 and 50 hour moving averages, resulting in them so that price is now turning below them. The moving averages on the hourly timeframe suggest a choppiness in price, as the 20, 50, 100 and 200 are all in a mixed alignment — meaning the trend across timeframes is inconsistent, indicating a potential opportunity for rangebound traders.

    @Eug_Ng ETH is not an altcoin.It has extra functionality which is distinct from the single feature of fungibility.An altcoin is more like Dogecoin or Litecoin. They are beetle clones of Bitcoin. The coin suffix is usually a good indicator.

  • From LitecoinForever:

    If the whole point of cryptocurrency is to be a medium of exchange, it makes sense to own Litecoin, which has global adoption & high liquidity. 🤔
