What to expect from Litecoin price?

4-hour price chart by Tradingview

Traders should expect Litecoin price to fall back to the $220.00 mark as the price action is still facing strong bearish pressure. The negative technical analyses and the bearish short-term indicators suggest a drop to the $200 psychological level.

Conversely, if Litecoin price breaks above the $240.00 mark, the next resistance lies at the $260.00 mark. However, that is unlikely given the dwindling trade volume.
