Litecoin price analysis: LTC fails to gather momentum above $105

Litecoin price analysis

TL;DR Breakdown

  • Litecoin price analysis shows continued downtrend
  • LTC failed to gather momentum above $105 and moved back to $103 low
  • Further movement towards $100 support would signal significant slump

Litecoin price analysis continues to show bearish signs for the fifth consecutive day, as price dropped more than 2 percent over the past 24 hours. A low of $104.11 was recorded after LTC struggled to consolidate momentum above the $105 region to remain below the 9 and 21-day moving averages. Further movement south would bring the support zone at $100 into play which could spell a significant move down towards next support levels at $85 and $80. Conversely, if buyers can rescue price from free fall at current trend, LTC could line up to reach $110 with the next resistance level set at $117.

The larger cryptocurrency market also continued to stay in the red zone as Bitcoin fell to $39,500 and Ethereum dropped below the significant $3,000 mark. Altcoins suffered similarly, as Ripple fell to $0.70 and Dogecoin to $0.13, both enduring a 2 percent drop. Polkadot fell 4 percent to $18.32, Solana 2 percent to $99.81 and Cardano to $0.88 with a 1 percent dip.
