The Litecoin price analysis is bearish for today. Bears have brought down the price to the $139 level, disrupting the bullish trend prevailing for the past two days. Traders are entering the market to sell their LTC/USD assets, fearing another price drop as the fear still prevails after the prolonged bearish trend that followed since mid-November last year.

Bears flourished during the last few hours as market pressure increased on LTC, and the bullish trend came to a halt. Though the last two days proved good for the coin, bears successfully took over and reversed the price function, as the bullish momentum was quite strong, so a reversal is also possible if bulls get support again.
