Litecoin, Monero, Dash Price Analysis: 28 February
Litecoin witnessed a downwards breakout from a parallel channel and moved to its support at $156.75. Monero was projected to move sideways as trading volumes and buying activity was suppressed. Lastly, a descending triangle emerged on Dash’s chart but a breakout largely depended on the direction of the broader market.
On the hourly timeframe, Litecoin broke below its parallel channel and moved to another region of support at $157.5. The On Balance Volume dipped as the price broke below the bottom trendline, but the index was recovering at the time of writing. A bullish crossover in the Stochastic RSI added some more optimism as LTC picked up from the $157 support line.
However, it was hard to overlook LTC’s bear market and stronger cues could be needed to back a move above the immediate overhead resistance. A spike in the 24-hour trading volumes could be one such signal that could project an upwards breakout on the charts.
The 24-hour trading volumes on Monero were muted as the cryptocurrency failed to break out from the $224.5 and $196.3 range. The Bollinger Bands showed that volatility remained on the lower side as the bands were compressed. This also meant that massive movements were unlikely and XMR could continue to trade within its current channel over the next few sessions.
A bullish twin peak setup on the Awesome Oscillator was negated as momentum tilted in the favor of the sellers at the time of writing.
Dash formed a descending triangle on its 4-hour chart as the price formed lower highs since snapping a local high at over $330. The On Balance Volume also steadily declined as the sell-off was heightened by a correction in the broader market. The Stochastic RSI continued its southbound trajectory after reversing from the overbought region.
Further weakness in market leaders BTC and ETH could continue to have a negative impact on Dash, and support levels at $166.8 and $135.3 could be tested in the event of a downwards breakout. On the flip side, Dash’s pattern could be invalidated if the price moves north on the back of a broader market rally.
