The overall Litecoin price action structure has turned even more bearish over the past few days. LTC spent the past weeks moving sideways after rebounding to the $200 resistance from the $120 support, which resulted in a trading range of around $150-$180.

On the 20th of June, Litecoin spiked lower and moved towards the $120 previous major support. A brief breakthrough was seen, with a recovery shortly after back above the support. This has led LTC towards further upside over the past 24 hours as bulls want to retest the $150 mark as a resistance.

Once the $150 resistance is tested, we can expect LTC/USD to reverse and start moving lower again to set another lower low along with the current bearish momentum. However, if Litecoin price fails to breach the $120 mark and established a higher low, we can expect LTC/USD to start trading higher over the next few days.

In this scenario, the market would turn bullish once the current major resistance at $180 is broken. Until then, it is best to wait for further price action development.

Litecoin Price Analysis: Conclusion 

Litecoin price analysis is bullish for the next 24 hours as the $120 support was regained and LTC/USD moved higher over the past 24 hours. This price action development should lead LTC to retest the previous major support at $150 as resistance. From there, we should see another move lower later this month.
