Biggest Movers: LTC, SOL Climb to 1-Week Highs on Monday

Solana extended recent gains on Monday, as the token rose to a one-week high, following recent declines. The token dropped below the $20.00 level last week, as a red wave hit cryptocurrency markets. Litecoin was also higher today, climbing by nearly 7%.

Solana (SOL)

Solana (SOL) rose to a one-week high on Monday, as momentum shifted following a recent bear run.

SOL/USD surged to a peak of $21.49 earlier in today’s session., which comes after Sunday’s low of $20.65.

As a result of this rally, solana moved to its strongest point since last Monday, when price was close to $22.00.

One of the catalysts of today’s gains came as the 14-day relative strength index (RSI) broke out of a ceiling at 45.00.

The index is now tracking at 48.31, which is its highest reading in almost ten days of trading.

Should current sentiment extend throughout the week, there is a good chance SOL will near its long-term resistance at $24.00.

Litecoin (LTC)

Additionally, litecoin (LTC) also moved higher in today’s session, with price climbing by as much as 7%.

Following a low of $81.75 on Sunday, LTC/USD raced to an intraday high of $87.54 earlier in the day.

This jump resulted in the token reaching its highest point since March 6, which is the last time LTC was trading close to the $90.00 mark.

From the chart, a breakout of the RSI has also occurred here, with a ceiling at 51.00 being broken.

At the time of writing, price strength is now at the 54.15 mark, with the next visible point of resistance being 58.00.

There is a strong possibility that litecoin could move above $90.00 in the coming days.
