Fortunately for traders and Litecoin enthusiasts, this deep bear market might be a good time for adoption according to Charlie Lee. Of course, since time immemorial, mass adoption of any product-centralized or otherwise attracts value and Litecoin is no exception. In the meantime though, Litecoin as well as most coins in the top 10 are registering double digit losses as sellers search for new 2018 lows.
A bear market is the best time for people to work on adoption.
We build it and they will come. Adoption is key!
As it is, Litecoin prices are now trading at 2018 lows but that’s not what is conspicuous. From the weekly chart, we can see that prices did drop below Q1 2018 lows via a high volume bear break below by week ending June 10.
The same pattern is playing out this week and unless something drastic comes through, this week will end up bearish with sellers getting ahead of bulls breaking and closing below Q2 2018 as they register new 2018 lows.
These two, same style break below key support zone indicates how strong this bear momentum is. If anything, we can check simple metrics and note that Litecoin is down 85 percent from 2017 ATHs and likely to drain more value in coming days.
Now, because of this clear lower lows and important close below $70, we recommend shorting with first targets at $50 and later $30. The only time this sell projection would be null is once we see buyers thrusting above $90 and $110. If not, selling on every high in lower time frames seem like a nice plan.
The path of least resistance has been ascertained. Since bears are in charge, then we must trade with the trend acknowledging that bear break out pattern of June 10 and the consequent break below our $20 trade range at $70.
In line with our previous Litecoin (LTC) technical analysis, we suggest selling on pull backs retesting $70 with stops at $70 and first targets at $50.
