Litecoin Price Forecast
There was no upside move in litecoin price above the $165 resistance against the US dollar. The LTC/USD pair started a downside move and traded below the $155 and $150 support levels.
The downside move was substantial as the price even broke the $140 level. Now, the price is well below the $150 level and the 100 hourly simple moving average. There is a minor correction underway from the $137 low.
An initial resistance is around the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the decline from the $163 high to $137 low. Any major upsides are likely to be capped since there are many hurdles on the upside near the $150 and $155 levels.
The stated levels were supports previously and now they will protect gains above $155. Moreover, there is a major bearish trend line forming with resistance at $155 on the hourly chart of the LTC/USD pair.
Furthermore, the 50% Fib retracement level of the decline from the $163 high to $137 low is positioned near the $150 level. Therefore, the $150 level may perhaps stop the current upside wave.
On the downside, the recent low of $137 is a short-term support. A break and close below the mentioned 137 level could open the doors for more losses towards $125.
Overall, the current price action is bearish below $150 and litecoin price will most likely continue moving lower in the near term.
