Litecoin price analysis: Majority technical indicators predict bearish upcoming 24 hours

The 24-hour candlestick chart for Litecoin price analysis suggests that the bearish trend is set to continue over the next 24 hours. Buyers are expected to continue dominating with the next resistance point sitting at an extension from current trend. Price currently sits below the crucial 25 and 50-day exponential moving averages (EMAs) and an only uptrend is possible once this point is crossed. Another resistance level for LTC sits at the 38.2 percent Fibonacci retracement level at $132. This level looks to be a daunting possibility in the near term, but would eliminate the bearish outlook as LTC will then target the 50 percent retracement at $140.
