The one-hour chart for LTC suggested the formation of a descending triangle that had been breached. The triangle was formed with the help of trend lines, one of which bridged the lower highs at $57.95, $57.80, and $56.95, while the second line provided the base to the forming triangle at $56.17. The price that consolidated within the triangle breached it at $56.96 and LTC experienced a fall of 6.52%, taking its price to $53.30. The coin has managed to recover by 2%, pushing its price to $55.54.

The 50 moving average remained under the 100 moving average due to a recent crossover. Since the crossover, the coin has lost 2.09% of its value and since the averages align above the candlesticks, an extremely bearish market was suggested. The MACD indicator too, reflected a bleeding market as the MACD line rested under the signal line.

Conclusion

The breach of the descending triangle pattern resulted in the fall of Litecoin by 6.52%, with a bearish market ahead.
