Crypto News: Is LiteCoin starting new bounce off key support?

Today’s focus is on Litecoin as price has started a new push higher after holding once again at 97.15 key support.

Most coins are firm at this point in the day as buyer interest continues to pick up. We saw this yesterday, but things changed in the US session, and gains turned to losses. Could today be different? It’s a hard call as the FOMC is due in today’s US session, and a lot may come down to the FOMC statement and what it spells for rates moving forward. Recently crypto hasn’t reacted well to Fed policy adjustment news to help rein in inflation. Rates are expected to rise today, but could that be factored in? The real worry could be if the Fed commits to a very aggressive stance that exceeds market expectations. That could put pressure on risk markets to the USD and give the USD a boost. As noted, crypto has not reacted well in these situations, so it could be an interesting FOMC today.

Back onto today’s focus, Litecoin looks to be setting up from a solid base with 97.15 key support holding for buyers since January this year. Since that point, we are yet to see a close below that support level. We have seen a few false starts off it, but while it continues to hold, there continues to be a floor for buyers. If things support crypto markets today after the FOMC, could we see today’s rally extend and break the current fast downtrend?

Buyers do face some resistance at 100.35 and 103.90. If we see these levels cleared, that could be a good sign that buyers are trying to get a new up leg going. If we see a rally follow on, the next test will be the downtrend that caps the current descending triangle pattern. The CCI has also moved above the 0 point showing bullish conditions.

We stress again today’s FOMC could have an impact on the current picture. The FOMC statement and federal funds rate is due at 4:00 am AEST, and the press conference follows at 4:30 am AEST.
