Price Analysis

Latest Litecoin price and analysis (LTC to USD)

Litecoin has been battered and bruised this week following a market-wide sell-off that has seen it fall to its lowest point since July.

At the time of writing it was trading at $132 with a market cap of $9.2 billion, making it the 25th largest cryptocurrency.

It is now 56.2% lower than on November 10 when it topped the $300 mark.

Historical levels of support remain at $118, $104 and $91, although it is expected to have a slight relief bounce back into the $152 region before heading lower.

The gruelling downtrend is now confirmed across all timeframes. A bullish reversal would only be triggered if it begins to trade and close daily candles above $183.

Litecoin isn’t the only asset to have struggled this week, Bitcoin finds itself beneath the $42,000 mark while Ethereum has fallen all the way down to $3,200.

As traders prepare themselves for a prolonged bear market, investors can expect price points as low as $50 over the coming 12 to 18 months.
