LTC continues its bearish trend and might reach a new bottom soon. Sellers are dominating the market, leaving no chance for buyers to gain the upper hand even the short-term initiative. On the chart, the coin is located below the Bollinger Band line, which means that Litecoin is likely to decline further.

In this regard, the closest level at 0.006 BTC will be reached in the first days of November.

Litecoin is trading at 0.006549 BTC at press time.


XLM is slowly but surely recovering from the bottom touched at the end of September 2019. The price of the coin has declined by 0.84% over the last 24 hours, which is a much less decrease compared to other altcoins.

On the four-hour chart, XLM has not faced a deep correction so far. The coin has traded sideways after each bullish wave. Currently, Stellar is likely to face a decline due to the absence of the trading volume and buying pressure. Furthermore, the MACD indicator has become bearish, suggesting the drop to 700 satoshis soon.

XLM is trading at 0.00000777 BTC at press time.


TRX is the main loser on our list - - its rate has gone down by more than 4% over the last day. The long-term forecasts for the coin do not look promising. It has lost over 80% of its value almost over the last year.

On the daily chart, TRX is forming a triangle pattern with a breakout up or down. At the moment, there are no prerequisites fora potential price increase. 


The RSI indicator is located in the neutral zone which means that the coin has a high chance of sinking to the 150 Satoshis level. One may think about a trend change if TRX breaks the crucial point of 200 satoshis.

TRX is trading at 0.00000186 BTC at press time.
