With the commencement of its recent bullish rally, Litecoin (LTC) finally traded above the 20/50/200 EMA while rising within an ascending channel (white). Meanwhile, the bulls kept testing the $126-resistance.
A sustained close below the $126-mark could propel the alt to retest the $122-$123 zone before the bulls continue their buying spree. Any close below its 20 EMA (red) would lead to a patterned breakdown towards the $120-mark that coincided with its immediate trendline support (white, dashed). At press time, LTC traded at $125.5.

While the bears ensure the $126-ceiling, a potential retest of the lower trendline of the up-channel seemed likely.
