Litecoin Climbs Over 2% as Analysts Eye Potentially Major Mid-Term Gains

Bitcoin has been facing some turbulent price action over the past several days and weeks, which has led cryptocurrencies like Litecoin to establish wide trading range. This volatility, however, has been generally positive, as most cryptos – including LTC – are trading up from their monthly lows.

Analysts are now predicting significantly further upside for Litecoin in the near-term, with one prominent crypto analyst noting that LTC could surge as much as 80% against its BTC trading pair in the coming weeks and months.

Litecoin Inches Higher Despite Bitcoin’s Recent Bearishness

At the time of writing, Litecoin is trading up over 2% at its current price of $61.00, which marks a slight climb from its daily lows of $59.00.

While zooming out and looking at LTC’s one-month performance, it grows clear that its recent volatility has favored the cryptocurrency’s bulls, as it is currently trading up significantly from its 30-day lows of under $50 that were set in late-October.

LTC’s recent rise from its monthly lows appears to be largely influenced by Bitcoin’s massive surge that came about in late-October after the Chinese President offered bullish remarks on blockchain technology.
