Litecoin is currently trading at $137.551 and dropped by 0.97 % on the day. The recent modest declines appeared after the crypto market started to lose ground, which pushed BTC down and other cryptocurrencies as well.  

However, the downticks in the LTC pair could be short-lived. The daily chart shows that the candle formations are currently respecting upward movement. Crossing below the 9-day moving average might position the market price in decline.  

The closest support level is located around the 21-day moving average at $130 level in the same line, while a north wave might see a high movement above the channel’s upper boundary.

Weaker Dollar Pushing LTC/USD Over $136

The broad-based U.S. dollar weakness was also seen as one of the critical factors that help the LTC/USD prices to limit their deeper losses. At the USD front, the broad-based U.S. dollar extended its previous-session bearish rally.  

It fell further on the day as the market’s risk-on mood tends to weaken the safe-haven dollar. The Fed’s dovish stance in his recent conference has also played a significant role in undermining the U.S. dollar. Thus, the U.S. dollar strength was seen as one of the key factors that kept the LTC/USD coin under pressure.
