Looking at the chartthe price was trading at $ 74.84 and currently trades in downside area. On the downside, there is significant support close to $ 74.50, which is also a pivot level.

It seems that the price is able to break the resistance of the trend line and $ 76.00 to start a recovery. The next resistance approaches the 50% retracement level of the last decline, from $ 79.22 up to $ 74.84 down to $ 77.03.
To further recover, the price must break the $ 77.00 and $ 78.00 resistance levels. However, above $ 78.00, recoveries could be limited. If the price decreases again, it can be traded below $ 75.00 and $ 74.84.
However, the $ 74.50 level is a crucial support, where litecoin buyers could take a position. If they can not defend $ 74.50, the price of litecoin could perhaps extend the current decline to $ 72.00 and $ 70.00 in the short term.
