Looking at the overall Litecoin price action structure over the past weeks, we can see that bears are still in control. After Litecoin saw a strong retracement in May, support was finally set around the $120 mark. After a solid rally to the $200 mark, LTC/USD could not move any higher, and several lower highs were set over the following weeks.

This has resulted in a steady decline over the last weeks. The last swing high, around $180, was set on the 15th of June, and from there, LTC/USD declined by more than 40 percent until the local bottom was set on Tuesday.

Litecoin price retraced during the middle of the week as established a clear lower high below $140 over the past days. What followed was a slow decline yesterday, with the $120 mark reached overnight. 

Over the past few days, Litecoin has traded relatively calmly, indicating that bears are preparing to push the market price lower over the next 24 hours. Therefore, considering the overall price action development, we should see LTC/USD spike lower and reach the next support around $95-$100 next week.

Litecoin Price Analysis: Conclusion 

Litecoin price analysis is bearish for the next days as we saw a clear lower high set late yesterday around $135 and a substantial move lower overnight. This LTC/USD price action development should lead towards further downside next week, with the $95-$100 support area targeted next.
