The overall market still trades within a strong bearish momentum over the last few days. After some recovery at the end of July, during which previous major support around $150 was retested as a resistance, ETH failed to breach further highs.

What followed was a consolidation above the $135 support over the past days and a quick spike lower overnight. This Litecoin price action development has resulted in a reversal for the medium-term trend, indicating that we can expect the $120 mark tested over the next few days.

From there, LTC/USD will likely set another lower high and push towards further downside from there. The next major support target is located around $95 and could be reached by the end of this month.

Litecoin Price Analysis: Conclusion 

Litecoin price analysis is bearish for today as a clear lower high was set yesterday and the market moved lower from there past the $135 support. Therefore, we can expect LTC/USD to see further downside later this week with the $120 mark as the next target.
