What to expect from Litecoin price?
Traders should expect Litecoin price to continue trading inside the consolidating channel for the next few days until the price finds strong support to break above the level. The confused sentiment expressed by the technical indicators and the relatively low trade volume also supports this prediction making it unlikely for LTC to break above.
However, if Litecoin price falls to the $100 mark, LTC could initiate a strong bull rally enabling the price to break above the $150.00 level.
