On June 27, Litecoin plunged to a $39 low after the bears broke the $42 support. The crypto has been consolidating between $42 and $45 since June 11.
During the period of consolidation, buyers made four attempts to break the $45 resistance but were repelled. Nevertheless, the bears overpowered the bulls as the $42 support was breached. The coin fell to $39 low but price corrected upward to the high of $42.
The bulls retested the $42 resistance twice and were repelled. The market is falling from $42 but the bulls are struggling to sustain the price above $41. On the downside, if the selling pressure resumes and breaks below $40, the market will drop to $34. However, if the support at $40 holds, LTC will be range-bound between $40 and $42. On the upside, if the crypto rebounds above the support at $41, Litecoin will rise and return to the $42- $45 price range.
The price of Litecoin is below the EMAs which suggests a further downward movement of the coin. Presently, LTC is above the 25% range of the daily stochastic. It indicates that the coin has bullish momentum. This is contrary to the price action which indicates a bearish signal.
Key Resistance levels: $80, $100, $120
Key Support levels: $50, $40, $20
Litecoin has dropped to a $39 low but fluctuates between $40 and $42. The $40 support is the critical support level for the coin. This price level has been holding since April. Possibly a rebound is likely if the price retraces to the support at $40.
