Litecoin climbed up on its chart by 2.5% as it was trading at $188.20. The coin traded successfully over its support region of $175.35 and could potentially topple over its immediate resistance of $188.90 to touch the next ceiling of $193.62.

Awesome Oscillator flashed green signal bars suggesting bullish price action for LTC. Relative Strength Index noted an increase in buying pressure while it stood above the 60-mark. 

Bollinger Bands constricted implying that market volatility could be on the decline. In case of a dip in prices, Litecoin could fall to the $175.35 support line. 

Ethereum Classic (ETC)

ETC/USD, TradingView

ETC noted a 2.1% increase over the last 24 hours as it stood at a multi-month high of $75.44. If ETC rises above the current price level, then it could test the $76.70 resistance. 

The four-hour chart of ETC, however, showed mixed signs. The Awesome Oscillator noted the onset of a bearish price movement with a green signal bar over the midline. 

MACD displayed green histograms albeit declining in nature, so ETC could possibly dip and stand on the $71.96 support level.

The Relative Strength Index remained bullish as it was seen within the overbought territory, a reading that is often mostly followed by a corrective pullback. 

Polkadot (DOT)

DOT/USD, TradingView

DOT registered an impressive 8.1% surge over the last 24 hours, as it traded at $25.18, a price it last touched on 14 June. As technical indicators point towards a bullish momentum, DOT could maintain the uptrend and test $26.29 resistance. 

Awesome Oscillator observed green signal bars which indicated an uptrend in the market. Corresponding to the same, MACD after recording a bullish crossover also displayed the onset of green bars on the histogram. 

Relative Strength Index went straight into the overbought zone as buying pressure hiked, however, a chance of price reversal can’t be ruled out completely.  In case of a reversal, DOT could trade on the $22.98 support level.
