Litecoin price action trades in a strong bearish momentum after failing to move above the $150 mark at the end of July. From there, LTC/USD made the final attempt to move higher unsuccessfully and saw further lower highs from there,

This price action development resulted in an increasingly stronger bearish momentum until a rapid spike to the $105 mark, where previous support was seen. From there, LTC/USD quickly recovered more than 20 percent until the several-week descending resistance trendline was retested. 

Currently, further upside pressure gets rejected, indicating that Litecoin price will reverse over the next 24 hours and start moving towards the $105 previous support. If a higher low can be established above $105, ADA/USD could start its way higher over the next weeks and finally reverse the several-month bearish market structure.

Litecoin Price Analysis: Conclusion 

Litecoin price analysis indicates bearish momentum to follow over the next 24 hours as a new lower high was established overnight along the several-week descending resistance trendline. Therefore, we expect LTC/USD to move lower later today and try to test the $105 major support once again next week.
