Litecoin makes a surprising downward move after repeated failure to attain the upper price level. The currency had been consolidating previously for two weeks in October but the bears push the price below the consolidation area. However, the trend corrected upward as the coin resumes its consolidation above the $50 support.
As the currency attracted selling pressure it may continue to go down after a retest at the $54 rate. There is the tendency that the price will test or break below the $50 support if the market continues its depreciation. However, if the bulls defend the $50 support, the coin will continue to consolidate above the $50 support.
LTC declines to the $50 support level but the bulls defend the rate. The market will continue its fluctuations if the bulls or the bears failed to take control over it.
Key Supply Zones: $90, $110, $130
