However, sellers have camped in the same very zones waiting to exert more pressure on the already battered bulls.

Meanwhile, LITC/USD is doddering at $68.48 after suffering a 3.35% loss on the day. An intraday high formed at $72.12 is now the ultimate short term resistance. Litecoin price, further explored the levels close to the key support at $65.
