From Monday’s open when the price of Litecoin was at its highest point in a while as it has reached $64.111, the price has decreased by 8.92% measured to its lowest point today at $58.38.
On the hourly chart, you can see that the price of Litecoin interacted with the resistance line from the expanding triangle which is viewed as an ending diagonal on the 5th impulse wave. Now that it has ended and another retest of resistance occurred the price started moving to the downside and is currently retesting the support at the prior range resistance. Judging by the momentum I don’t believe that the level is going to serve as support for much longer as it is only a minor support/resistance point and considering that the price has moved above the resistance zone I retest of its levels for support would be more likely.
If the 5th wave ended the price is set to go below the resistance zone again as the Intermediate Y wave ended which is why from here more downside would be expected for the price of Litecoin.
From Monday’s open at $3.8525 we have seen a decrease of 6.08% measured to the lowest point the price has been today at $3.618 around which the price is currently being traded and is in a downward trajectory.
On the hourly chart, you can see that the price of EOS is back to around 0.5 Fibonacci level where it is searching for support and is currently below it. The price of EOS has some more upside potential before we see an impulsive decrease to the downside like presumably started in the case of Bitcoin but we could also be seeing the start of the next structure to the downside. If the price continues moving upward as this was the 4th wave out of the five-wave move to the upside I would expect to see the price of EOS around $4.162 before the start of the impulsive decrease.
The C wave would develop to the upside as the price is set to complete the five-wave move but if this previous wave ended as a three wave move then we are already seeing the start of the next move to the downside.
This would soon be validated by the support or the lack of support around the current levels as the 4th wave can’t enter the territory of the second wave and the price has come to its resistance levels, so if it continues moving lower the count would be invalidated which would mean that the third correction or an impulse wave to the downside has most likely started.
