On August 7, Litecoin’s price was forced southward towards the accumulation territory of $60 by the bears’ forces. Its price has now been hovering above said accumulation territory.  The 50-day SMA is still above the 14-day SMA and both point south.

 Stochastic Oscillators have dipped into the overbought zone and are currently consolidating within it.  All these put together show the bears’ intense efforts aren’t stopping yet, meaning more downward movements are to be expected.

The market may only start a bullish trend by pushing LTC’s price past the two SMAs. It’s assumed investors may stay off the market for a while, but traders can continue to look out for a strong move in any direction, while properly managing their funds.
