Litecoin price made another
attempt to clear the $120.00 resistance against the US dollar, but failed. LTC declined
sharply and it is currently trading above the key $100.00 support.
Key Talking Points
Recently, there was a nasty declined in bitcoin, Ethereum, EOS, litecoin and ripple against the US Dollar. The LTC/USD pair struggled to clear the $120.00 level, resulting in a sharp drop below the $115.00 and $110.00 support levels.
Looking at the chart, LTC price topped near the $121.02 level and recently declined below the $115.00 support level. There was even a close below the $110.00 level and the 100 hourly simple moving average.
Moreover, there was a break below a major bullish trend line
with support at $115.00 on the hourly chart. The pair even broke the $108.00
level and traded as low as $101.92.
The price recovered above the $106.00 level and the 23.6%
Fib retracement level of the recent drop from the $121.02 high to $101.92 low. In
the short term, there could be range moves above $100.00 before the price
recovers above $108.00.
The next key resistance is near the $111.50 level and the 100
hourly simple moving average. However, the previous support area near $115.00
is likely to act as a strong hurdle for the bulls.
On the downside, the main supports are $102.00 and $100.00.
If there is a downside break below the $100.00 handle, the price could accelerate
losses towards the $92.00 support.
The current price action is bearish, but litecoin price is
likely to stay above the $100.00 support area. On the upside, an initial
resistance is at $108.00, above which LTC is likely to recover towards the key
$115.00 resistance area.
