Litecoin price action structure trades in a bearish momentum since the beginning of July, when a lower high was established around $148, and the market started reversing. What followed was a lower low set around $128, and after a second lower low, a strong several-day push lower.

LTC/USD broke past the $120 support without much hesitation and spiked towards the $105 major support from there. Around the $105 support, a slight rejection was seen yesterday, which led to a reversal overnight. 

Right now, the Litecoin price trades higher again and trades in between the $105 support and $120 resistance. This Litecoin price development should lead towards further upside later today as bulls look to retest the $120 mark as a resistance.

Litecoin Price Analysis: Conclusion 

Litecoin price analysis indicates bullish momentum to follow over the next 24 hours as bulls push LTC price away from the $105 support. Therefore, we can expect LTC/USD to reach the $120 mark next and potentially start heading towards further lows from there.
