Trading Alchemist, however, believes LTC is firmly in a downtrend. As stated, the market has pulled the Litecoin price but LTC’s support level wasn’t strong enough to sustain this. With resistance being set at $41.61, the analyst is more confident Litecoin will slip to its nearest support level of just above $40. It’s here where the analyst recommends opening positions but advises caution if doing so.
