BTC and LTC Price Analysis for November 15, 2023
Bitcoin failed to hold above $37,000, falling to $34,800. Here's an analysis of the market situation for Bitcoin (BTC) и Litecoin (LTC) as of Wednesday, November 15.
Yesterday's decline in Bitcoin precisely matched the support levels highlighted in our previous analysis. Currently, Bitcoin is trading in a range, bounded by a buyer's level at $34,800 and a resistance zone between $36,250 and $36,700.
For Bitcoin to regain its upward momentum, it needs to break through this existing resistance soon and aim to retest the higher resistance zone at $37,500-$38,000. These movements should ideally occur on significant trading volumes to confirm the buyers' continued strength.
If Bitcoin fails to break through, we could witness a deeper correction. The next potential support levels for BTC might be set at $33,400-$34,100, $31,500-$32,600, and as low as $30,700. Considering the correlation between the cryptocurrency market and Bitcoin, a 10% fall in the BTC price could lead to a 15-25% drop in altcoins.
BTC chart on the H2 timeframe
Bitcoin's recent downturn has also influenced Litecoin's price. The asset has repeatedly tested the $66-$68 support zone, five times in the last two weeks, with the price rebounding relatively quickly each time. Litecoin is currently hovering around the resistance zone of $72.1-$73.3.
For LTC, continuing its upward trend remains a priority, but this is contingent on Bitcoin exhibiting a similar pattern. The immediate goal for buyers is to retest the seller's zone at $75.1-$76.9 and attempt to reach a new local high of around $79.
Should the correction persist, it could have a substantial negative impact on Litecoin. The cryptocurrency might decline to the $63.2-$64.8 zone, and if Bitcoin falls to $30,000, LTC could hit a new local low below $60, effectively nullifying its gains over the past month. Thus, short-term investments in LTC currently carry a significant risk.
