An immediate support is near the $100.00 level, below which the price could continue to move down. If there is a close below $100.00, Litecoin price is likely to accelerate lower towards the $94.00 level. The 76.4% Fib retracement level of the last major wave from the $84.00 low to $122.10 high is also near $94.00 level.
