Will Litecoin Price Crash To $50?
With the $70 breakdown, mentioned as a worst-case scenario in our previous LTC price analysis, the downtrend is getting severe. If the buyers fail to hold off the crash rally at $60, the following support levels are at $50 and $40, accounting for an 18% to 33% fall.
On the flip side, a consolidation move above $60 will delay the downfall and help the momentum indicators rest for a bit.
Optimistically, chances for a reversal are thin but a closing above $70 can push the trend upwards.
