Litecoin price analysis: LTC heads downwards after facing $55 rejection

Litecoin price analysis is highly bearish today, after yesterday’s decline worsening over the past 24 hours to take LTC down to $50.33. LTC price faced an unexpected rejection at the $55 mark yesterday, as price looked set to test resistance at $60. Currently, the $50 support level remains crucial for LTC in a bid to regain upward momentum. If price falls below this point, price could lower down to next support at $45, casting the lowest point since June 17, 2022.

Litecoin price was expected to show sustainability around the $60 resistance and rally more than 20 percent to move up to the $73.5 mark. However, bears took over the market over the past 48 hours and major technical indicators show bleak possibility of a turnaround.
