Litecoin market overview: LTC/USD upside capped at $100

  • LTC/USD corrected to the support at $95 before relaunching another attack on $105.
  • Litecoin expected to consolidate between $95 and $100 in the coming sessions.

Litecoin has decided to play it safe after an unsuccessful attack on $105 resistance. The declines from July 10 explored the levels under $100. A low was formed at $77.50 before the bears started to retreat as reported by FXStreet.

The bounce from the support last week stepped above the moving averages initially before struggling with the resistance at $95. The first assault at $100 tested $105 but failed to make further movement north. LTC/USD corrected to the support at $95 before relaunching another attack on $105.

At press time, Litecoin upside has been capped at $100 with the trend have a bearish bias. The failure to sustain the gains above $100 has demoralized the bulls who are likely to retreat to create fresh demand at a lower level probably around $95.
