Nonetheless, things might turn around soon, as a few on-chain metrics suggested that LTC’s price might fall victim to a plummet in the days to follow.
Is Litecoin out of the woods yet?
Santiment’s chart revealed that LTC’s Market Value to Realized Value (MVRV) ratio increased substantially over the past week. This development might indicate a possible market peak, followed by a price decline.
LTC’s Binance funding rate also went down during the last seven days. This pointed towards less traction from the derivatives market.
Furthermore, LTC’s transaction count declined sharply on 4 November. Litecoin’s velocity also followed a similar route and registered a decline, which can be concerning for the coin.
Have the bears entered?
A look at LTC’s daily chart revealed that the bulls were leading the market, but it also suggested the possibility of a trend reversal. For instance, LTC’s Relative Strength Index (RSI) was entering the overbought zone, which is a massive bearish signal. Its Moving Average Convergence Divergence (MACD) indicated that the bulls and the bears were in a tussle.
Nonetheless, the Exponential Moving Average (EMA) ribbon delivered some good news, as the 20-day EMA was above the 55-day EMA. The Chaikin Money Flow (CMF) also registered an uptick, which looked optimistic for Litecoin.
