LTC/USD daily chart

Litecoin hanging on the edge of a cliff; if $70 short-term support caves in, it could refresh $60 support.

Recovery will continue to be limited towards $100 level mostly capped by the 100 Simple Moving Average at $87.29 and 200 SMA at $99.039.

LTC/USD 4-hour chart

Litecoin price is trading between the 200 SMA 4-hour resistance and the 100 SMA 4-hour support.

The accelerated trendline (dotted) is likely to give in to declines but a major trendline will be of importance later.

The Elliot wave oscillator is in its third bearish session in a row.
