Look at this LTC price chart: Litecoin has completed a head-and-shoulders pattern, which is actually a bad sign that might indicate the double bottom approaching. The user claims Litecoin can hit the $64 level, and it seems to be more than possible now when a downtrend is going on and on.

It’s not all lost for LTC/BTC

LTC should break 0.016

The same user has quite an interesting outlook at LTC/BTC trading pair: it doesn’t seem to be so hopeless. Litecoin/Bitcoin has obviously bottomed, but it is still within the long-term triangle. 

User’s previous BTC price analysis shows that Bitcoin is ready for a correction of 30-40%, which is perfectly timed with LTC/BTC ratio having bottomed out on all timeframes, being heavily oversold on all timeframes, and with major good news coming from the LTC: Halving, supply cut; Confidential transactions; Litecoin Foundation partnership with world-class sports club to increase adoption, and  LTC being incorporated within existing payment processors that have a global and/or major regional reach.

Thus, if LTC/BTC manages to break 0.016, it will definitely go to 0.025, and possibly wick to 0.035

It means you shouldn’t lose your last chance to get in Litecoin. All those who jumped LTC for BTC are about to get rejected twice; BTC will crash 30-40%, and when they realize the Litecoin Halving Pump has not yet happened, LTC ratio will already have pumped. 

Opponents’ opinion

Bullish trend must be confirmed

While in the last week, when the downside move was starting, many traders saw the potential target for Litecoin was $100. Effectively, it was reached, and now price is on a confluence zone between the support zone and the ascending trendline. As this is a strong level, a new bullish impulse can start here, towards the previous maximum level at 140 on average. 

However, some confirmation is needed before taking positions, since the trend at this moment remains bearish.
