Today, Buyers have pushed Litecoin to the high of $165 but it is retracing after rejection from the recent high. The current upward move has been made possible after LTC rebounded above the $140 support level.

However, the current range-bound movement may continue if the upward move becomes impossible. The altcoin is trading at $162.88 at the time of writing.
