Litecoin’s Recent Price Summary
Litecoin, one of the oldest cryptos amongst the top 10 of the global market was seen spurring at the onset of the week when it just leaped to a position above Bitcoin Cash based on market capital. While LTC leaped above BCH, the former was seen breaching a 15-month resistance, trading a Dollar below $95 at $94 from where it collapsed gradually to trade as low as $74, losing over 20% in 2 days.
It was in the early half of the ongoing year when LTC faced a stringent resistance at $84 and failed to cross above. However, the recent momentum led to a better market momentum in comparative to the previous one after which the coin faced a complete flattish movement.
