Litecoin (LTC) rose by as much as 15% to start the week, as cryptocurrency markets rebounded from recent losses.
LTC/USD surged to an intraday high of $79.53 earlier in today’s session, less than 24 hours after hitting a low of $68.66.
The move saw litecoin climb to its strongest point since last Friday, when the token was at a peak of $84.92.
Looking at the chart, one catalyst of the move appears to be the 14-day relative strength index (RSI), which broke out of a recent resistance point.
As of writing, the index is tracking at 41.05, following a move beyond the aforementioned ceiling at 40.00.
Should momentum continue in this direction, there is a strong chance that LTC bulls will take price to a ceiling at $85.00.
Ethereum Classic (ETC)
Following a low of $17.05 on Sunday, ETC/USD raced to a peak of $20.20 to start the week.
This high has also acted as a point of resistance in recent weeks, and since a collision earlier in the day, bullish momentum has marginally eased.
At the time of writing, ETC/USD is trading at $19.65, which is still nearly 15% higher than yesterday’s bottom.
Overall, it appears that previous bulls have moved to secure gains, as the RSI nears a ceiling of its own at 48.00.
