For the day ahead
Litecoin would need to move through the $168 pivot to bring the first major resistance level at $173 into play.
Support from the broader market would be needed, however, for Litecoin to break back through to $170 levels.
Barring an extended crypto rally, the first major resistance level and Wednesday’s high $174.58 would likely cap any upside.
In the event of an extended breakout, Litecoin could test resistance at the 23.6% FIB of $178 and the second major resistance level at $180.
Failure to move through the $168 pivot would bring the first major support level at $161 into play.
Barring an extended sell-off, however, Litecoin should steer clear of the second major support level at $156.
