Looking at the 4-hour chart, LTC price traded as low as $75.60 and recently recovered above the $77.50 resistance area. There was a break above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last drop from the $92.49 high to $75.60 low.

There is also a major bearish trend line formed with resistance near the $86.20 level on the 4-hour chart. A successful break above the trend line and $87.00 may perhaps open the doors for more gains.
The price could rally towards the $95.00 level and it may even revisit the $100.00 resistance.
