Last week, the Litecoin (LTC) price was in a downward correction at the bottom of the chart. Today, the LTC price is retreating after being bumped off the 21-day moving average line.
It is also pushed off from the high at $116. Since January 22, the altcoin's price has been fluctuating between $100 and $116.
The price movement has remained relatively stable above the $100 support. Today, the LTC price has retreated to a low of $112. Litecoin is capable of resuming an uptrend if the price rises above the current support and moving averages. On February 10, the bulls broke through the moving averages but were unable to sustain the bullish momentum. This led to the current downtrend. On the downside, the bulls are likely to defend the current support as it has not been breached yet.
