The cryptocurrency market continues to bleed today as Bitcoin sheds almost five percent of its value (4.17 percent), closing in on the $9,000 mark. Unfortunately, only a handful of coins have managed to escape the bloodshed. Litecoin isn’t one of them. At the time of writing, the Litecoin LTC price has dived over 10 percent (10.26 percent), trading at $66.59 at the time of writing.
As such, many analysts have taken an understandably pessimistic view on Litecoin’s price in the near term.
What analysts are saying about the Litecoin LTC price
As per Trend_Father’s analysis, if Litecoin holders want to see the price grow to $75.40, the price will need to be fixed above the support level of $69.96. This breakthrough would coincide with a -100 on the Commodity Channel Index (CCI), which compares the current price with an average price over a period of time.
However, if buyers fail to reach this level and sellers keep the price below the support level of $69.96, then we could see the Litecoin LTC price dropping to $66.41, where it will form a double bottom (occurs when the price drops, makes a slight rebound, drops back to a similar level before finally sinking even lower).
Similarly, analyst David_Smith believes the LTC price is going to get worse before it gets better. He states that Litecoin LTC price has lost its place in the horizontal marker and is now below the mid-level of the descending channel. Additionally, because Litecoin closed below the horizontal, the coin is now in a bearish engulfing, a pattern that signals lower prices on the way.
While the overall sentiment is rather pessimistic, the crypto market is very volatile. With a bit of luck, we’ll see a rebound before too long.
