The overall market trades with a strong bearish momentum over the last weeks as another strong push lower was seen from the $180 resistance. From there, Ripple retraced by more than 40 percent until support was found around the $110 mark.

What followed was a move higher to the $150 previous resistance, which now acts as a support. After Ripple price attempted to push higher again, a lower high was set around $148 on Monday. From there, the market started to consolidate in an increasingly tighter range above the $135 support.

This price action development means that the $135 support will likely be broken eventually, and further downside will be seen from there. Next, support is located around the $120 mark, and if reached from the current price, it would mean a drop of around 15 percent. From there, XRP/USD will likely attempt to reverse the several-week bearish momentum again or break lower to the $95 support.

Litecoin Price Analysis: Conclusion 

Litecoin price analysis is bearish for the next 24 hours as the market set a lower high on Monday and started to form a base from which to move lower again. Once the $135 breaks, we can expect LTC/USD to push towards the $120 mark next and continue the several-week bearish momentum.
