Litecoin price analysis: LTC/USD recovery loses steam under $100

  • The Litecoin Foundation struck a partnership deal with the Miami Dolphins.
  • The ascending trendline is key to price rebounds towards $100.

Litecoin gained incredibly yesterday following the drop to recent support at $77.50. After the 15% correction in a single day, LTC/USD hit a high around $94.86 before the trend gave way for a retracement touching $87.18 during the Asian trading hours on Thursday.

The impressive move saw LTC/USD rise above its peers amid heightened bear pressure across the market. The week has been a rollercoaster ride for Litecoin to say the least. The up and down movements come after the Litecoin Foundation struck a partnership deal with the Miami Dolphins in which the football club will receive payments in LTC for the 50/50 raffle. In spite of the positive news, Litecoin was caught up in the market declines mainly driven by Bitcoin.
