Litecoin and EOS - higher degree downtrend confirmed

FXOpen

LTC/USD

From last week’s high when the price of Litecoin has been sitting around $75.642 on Friday, we have seen a decrease of 14.48% measured to the lowest point the price has been today which is at $64.7. The price is currently being traded slightly higher but is retesting the low level’s vicinity.

Litecoin and EOS - higher degree downtrend confirmedAs you can see from the hourly chart the price went on to break out from the descending triangle on the upside but since it failed to exceed the prior high and instead made a lower one we have seen a downfall below the significant horizontal level at $69.

The wave structure is pointing out that we are seeing the 5th wave out of the five-wave move from the yearly high especially considering that a lower low has been made compared to the labeled 3rd wave which ended around $78.

The decrease is likely to continue as the 5th wave should develop fully and end on some of the lower horizontal support levels out of which the first one is at $62.6 and the next one is at $57.558.

As we are seeing the development of the last wave a recovery is soon to being but as the decrease was made in a five-wave manner the expected recovery would likely be corrective in nature and would develop in a three-wave manner.

This means that we are seeing the higher degree downtrend developing with the price of Litecoin likely headed towards the lower support area before the downtrend ends.

EOS/USD

Last Friday, the price of EOS has reached $3.7589 at its highest point which was the horizontal resistance point from the 18th of August. As the interaction ended as a rejection we have seen the sellers pressure pushing the price sharply to the downside falling down to $3.112 at its lowest point yesterday which is a decrease of 17.2% from last week’s high.

Litecoin and EOS - higher degree downtrend confirmedLooking at the hourly chart, you can see that the price came down below the horizontal support level at $3.2787 which has been retested from the downside and has rejected the price confirming that a breakout has occurred.

Like in the case of Litecoin the price has decreased in a five-wave manner from its yearly high which means that we are seeing the higher degree downtrend developing but as the price action is currently developing its ending wave the decrease is likely to end soon as the corrective recovery should begin.

Before the recovery, the price has to establish some firm support and the most optimal price target for the end of the decrease could be at the next horizontal level in line to the downside which is at $2.8647 but I spike to the downside below it entering the lower range could occur which would then be seen as a wick on the higher time frame.
