LTC and EOS - Further lows expected



The price of Litecoin reached $148 on the 4th of July which was the same level as on the prior high. From there we have seen the start of a descending move and is currently being traded at $130 and is still in a downward trajectory.


On the hourly chart, you can see that the price broke out from the ascending support level from the 22nd of June. This is the first signal that the prior recovery ended and now we have seen the start of a descending move of the same degree as the one that lasted from the 22nd of June till the 4th of July.

July 4th high came up to the descending trendline which is the upper level of the descending triangle which formed from the 23rd of May. As the price found resistance again this validated that the previous recovery was corrective in nature in conjunction with the wave structure. This is why it is counted as the 4th corrective wave with now most likely the 5th one to the downside developing.

If this is true then we are to see a lower low compared to the one on the 22nd of June when the price of Litecoin fell to $105 area. If the descending triangle is still in play another third interaction with its support level could be seen which brings the price target to $90.


From the start of July when the price of EOS reached $4.29 we have seen a decline of 16% measured to its lowest point today at $3.586. It is being traded slightly higher but like in the case of Litecoin a breakout was seen from the descending support level yesterday so the momentum is still strong and would be expected to continue moving the price further down.


In a prior analysis, we have counted the structure from the 27th of May till the 22nd of June as a WXY correction with the recovery seen from there possibility being the start of an impulsive move to the upside. However, this has now been invalidated but the wave structure.

We have most likely seen the complex correction prolongation with the recovery from the 22nd being the second wave X. This is why now another lower low would be expected to the territory of $2.14 as the fifth Z wave.
