More importantly, there was a break below a short-term bullish trend line with support at $155 on the hourly chart of LTC/USD pair. The pair is now trading below the $150 level, but it is holding a major support area near $135-140.

The stated $135 support is also the 50% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $100.68 low to $173.94 high. Therefore, the pair must stay above the $135 support to avoid an extended downside correction.

A break below the $135 level could open the gates for an extended downside correction towards the $120 level. On the upside, an initial resistance is around the $150 level. Above the mentioned $150 resistance, litecoin price may test the $160 pivot level.

At present, it seems like LTC/USD is consolidating losses above the $135 level and is preparing for the next move, which could be either above $150 or below $135 in the near term.

Trade safe traders and do not overtrade!
