Looking at the chartthe LTC price was traded well above the $ 60.00 support plus the simple moving average every 100 hours. It exceeded $ 63.68 before starting a downward correction.
The price has fallen below the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the recent upward movement from $ 56.92 down to $ 63.68 up. It seems that the price is approaching the support area of $ 61.00, which was previously a resistance.
Below $ 61.00, the next major support is close to the $ 60.00 level from the Fibre 50% retracement level of the recent rise from the $ 56.92 low to $ 63.68 high is placed near the $ 60.30 level.

Therefore, only a closing below the $ 59.00 level and the 100-hour SMA could open the door to further decreases in the short term. On the other hand, if the price rebounds after testing the $ 60.00 support, you may well retest the $ 63.00 level.
Overall, the current structure is positive for the litecoin price and remains well supported near $ 60.00 and $ 59.00.
