The price of Litecoin (LTC) has fallen below the 21-day SMA. The previous uptrend ended when the altcoin rose to a high of $110.

Long-term outlook for Litecoin price: bearish

Litecoin was forced into a sideways trend as bulls and bears continued their price battle. The bulls were expected to resume the uptrend, but they were outvoted. The current sideways trend between the 21-day SMA and resistance at $110 could come to an end if the bears break above the 21-day SMA support. 

On the downside, the downtrend is likely to continue if the price falls below the 21-day SMA. The bears will push the altcoin to a low above the 50-day SMA or $90. If the 50-day SMA support holds, Litecoin will be forced to trade on the lower levels. Meanwhile, the Litecoin price is trading at $85.20.

Analysis of the Litecoin indicator
