ADA, LTC and NEO – High Cap Altcoins Struggle to Recover After Sharp Drop

Cardano (ADA) is following an ascending support line but facing resistance at $1.85. Litecoin (LTC) has broken out from a descending resistance line but is facing resistance at $265. Neo (NEO) is trading between support and resistance at $40 and $76.


ADA has been moving downwards since it reached an all-time high price of $2.46 on May 16.

It has been following an ascending support line since Feb. 12. The line is currently near $1.20 and has been validated five times so far (green icons).

Technical indicators are leaning on being bearish. While the MACD has given some bullish reversal signs, the RSI is below 50 and the Stochastic oscillator is moving downwards.

The main resistance area is found at $1.85. Until a breakout transpires, we cannot consider the trend bullish.

ADA/USD support

The ADA/BTC chart also shows a downward movement that has been ongoing since May 16. On June 9, it created a lower high (red icons) and resumes its downward movement.

Similarly to the USD pair, technical indicators in the daily time-frame are bearish.

The closest support area is at 30,000 satoshis, the 0.618 Fib retracement support level.

ADA/BTC drop



LTC had been following a descending resistance line since May 20. After three unsuccessful attempts, it finally managed to move above it on June 14. Currently, it is in the process of validating it as support.

If successful, it would be likely to resume the breakout towards the closest resistance at $265, which is the 0.5 Fib retracement level.

The MACD & RSI are both increasing, supporting the continuation of the upward movement.

LTC/USD resistance

The LTC/BTC pair has a similar chart, with the exception that the token is still following a descending resistance line.

Currently, it is in the process of creating a higher low relative to the price on May 19. The RSI has generated considerable bullish divergence and the MACD is increasing.

A breakout would take LTC towards the next resistance at ₿0.0055. Similarly to the USD pair, this is the 0.5 Fib retracement level when measuring the most recent drop.

LTC/BTC movement



NEO has been increasing since bouncing on May 24. The bounce served to validate the $40 area as support.

However, the token managed to reach a high of only $66.69 before falling once more. The ensuing decrease has taken the shape of a descending wedge.

This is a bullish pattern which often leads to breakouts. In that case, the next closest resistance area would be found at $76.

NEO Wedge

The NEO/BTC chart shows an ascending support line that has been in place since Jan.4 The token has been decreasing since May 7 and is approaching this line once more. Another touch would validate it for the fifth time. The ascending support line also coincides with the ₿0.00107 horizontal support area.

Technical indicators are bearish. This is especially evident by the decreasing MACD and Stochastic oscillator.

Therefore, it is likely that NEO reaches this area.
