Similar to the above scenario, a downtrend can be observed in the one-day candlesticks as well wherein the trendline extending from $89 to $55 is forming a descending trend with the support set at $35.7. Moreover, an earlier support was set at $51 that was breached multiple times to finally dunk to the current level.

The Bollinger Bands are expanding to broaden the gap for prices to fluctuate. The volatility in the market was not high, but is predicted to increase as the bands diverge from the tunnel pattern.

The Chaikin Money Flow is extremely bearish on LTC at present. This can be observed as the reading line is crashing without any upturns to travel below the 0-line.
