The  price of Litecoin (LTC) has been declining since the end of the uptrend at $76. The altcoin fell below the 21-day SMA but remained above the 50-day SMA.

Litecoin price long-term forecast: bearish

Litecoin is trapped between the moving average lines. The price of the altcoin has fallen to the previous range between $60 and $70. If the bears break the 50-day SMA to the downside, the downward momentum is expected to continue. The price of the altcoin will fall further to around $60 or $54. 

Meanwhile, the presence of doji candlesticks has limited the price movement. However, if the bearish scenario proves invalid, the trend is likely to continue within the trading range. If the moving average lines are broken, the altcoin will develop a trend. At the time of writing, Litecoin had reached a low of $67.6.

Analysis of the Litecoin indicators

The moving average lines are horizontally sloped and capture the price bars between them. This explains the cryptocurrency's potential range of fluctuation. Long candlestick tails indicate a breakout above the $60 support, where the price will come under significant buying pressure.
