Litecoin price analysis

Litecoin appears increasingly bearish in the near term, as the cryptocurrency struggles to regain the $60 technical level.

Litecoin price analysis shows that the cryptocurrency could be preparing to drop towards the $47 support area before the recent up-move resumes.

Litecoin medium-term price trend

Litecoin could soon start to move below the $50 level, as a wave of technical selling pressure continues to drag the popular cryptocurrency lower.

Litecoin technical analysis shows that the LTC/USD pair  will turn technically bearish if the price moves under the $50 level.

The daily time frame shows that the July 27 swing-low, around the $47 level, and the July 25 low, around the $44.00 level, are the key support zones below the $50 level to watch.

Given the ongoing breakout in the broader cryptocurrency market, the LTC/USD pair is expected to meet strong dip-buying interest from the mentioned support zones.

Long-term analysis highlights the $80 level as a potential upside target while the monthly candle continues to close above the $50 level.

The lower time frames currently show that a large head-and-shoulders pattern has been activated following the recent move under the $54 level.

According to the size of the bearish pattern, the LTC/USD pair could fall towards the $44 level over the short term.

It is also noteworthy that the RSI indicator is showing negative price divergence extending down towards the $48 level.
