Litecoin has been on a downward move after buyers fail to push the price above the $60 resistance. Buyers made three unsuccessful attempts to break the resistance level.
The recent attempt at the resistance resulted in the coin plunging to the low at $53.61. There are indications that the coin may further decline on the downside.
On the upside, the market will resume the upside momentum, if the selling pressure does not extend below the $51 support. Buyers will have another opportunity to push the price upward to retest the $60 resistance. Conversely, if the downtrend extends below $51 support, the crypto will continue the downward move. In the meantime, LTC is trading at $53.61 at the time of writing. Nonetheless, the holding of $51 support will determine the next move of the coin.
Yesterday, the price broke below the resistance line as the coin continued its downward move. The crypto has been in the overbought region for the past week. Sellers have emerged to push prices down. The coin is below 80% range of the daily stochastic. The price bars are presently above the SMAs which suggests that the coin is in the bullish trend zone.
Key Resistance levels: $80, $100, $120
Key Support levels: $50, $40, $20
