LTC in the bearish trend zone

Litecoin (LTC) price analysis, October 26, 2020. Despite its promising upside momentum, Litecoin has plunged to a $47 low. There are indications that the current fall will extend to another low at $44.

Litecoin Price Long-Term Prediction: Bearish

The current breakdown is a bearish reaction as bulls fail to break the $51 resistance. Buyers made concerted efforts to push LTC above the $51 resistance but to no avail. 

On three occasions, the bulls were repelled at the $51 resistance. On each attempt at the resistance, the market will drop to a $49 low. Today, LTC encountered a breakdown as price tests the $49.80 high. However, the selling pressure will resume if the price breaks below the SMAs. 

Nonetheless, if price rebounds at the current support, the coin will fall back into the range-bound zone of $49 and $51. Today, LTC is trading at $47.37 at the time of writing. Currently, the price is fluctuating above the current support.
