Biggest Movers: BNB Hits 20-Day High, as LTC Extends Recent Gains

Litecoin (LTC)

Litecoin (LTC) was a notable mover on Monday, as the token climbed for a sixth consecutive session.

LTC/USD raced to a peak of $92.16 earlier in the day, which comes less than 24 hours after trading at a low of $89.10.

This move has led to litecoin climbing to a key resistance level of $93.00, which was last hit on May 23.

From the chart, the recent rise seems to be a result of the relative strength index (RSI) breaking out of a ceiling at 51.00.

The index has since rallied further, hitting a resistance point at 57.00, which has resulted in earlier gains fading.

At the time of writing, LTC is trading at $91.38, with price strength at a reading of 56.05.


BNB, or binance coin, was also in the green to start the week, with prices moving to a multi-week high in the process.

Following a bottom at $307.53 on Sunday, BNB/USD rose to an intraday peak of $316.83 earlier today.

This surge saw BNB hit its highest level since May 9, when the token was trading above $320.00.

Overall, BNB is now trading 2% higher than at the same point last week, with today’s rally sending the RSI to its strongest reading since May 1.

In addition to this, the 10-day (red) moving average (MA) is also moving towards an upwards crossover with the 25-day (blue) MA.

Should this cross take place, there is a good chance that BNB will move towards a long-term ceiling at the $340.00 mark.
