At the moment, Litecoin’s price is down $-0.14 (-0.07%) from the hour prior. This move is a reversal from the hour prior, which saw price move up. If you’re a trend trader, consider that the strongest clear trend on the hourly chart exists on the 50 hour timeframe. Of note is that the 20 hour changed directions on LTC; it is now pointing down. 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.

    Sometimes Litecoin implements new features before Bitcoin. The first time was in 2017 when Litecoin activated SegWit first. Now Litecoin is activating #MWEB. Litecoin’s #MWEB may serve as a blueprint for Bitcoin to one day achieve higher fungibility & privacy as well.
