Litecoin had been trying to push back up past it since breaching the $80.48 support in mid-August. Litecoin has plummeted to a current valuation of $54.87 at press time and analysts call this a major “doomsday for Litecoin (paraphrased from Alts)” situation.

Litecoin has been on the decline for quite some time since the much-awaited “halving” event. If any indications for Bitcoin, everyone’s question is, will the “halving” crash the price of Bitcoin like it did for Ljitecoin. The bullish momentum at the start of the month seems to have run out of steam, as a bear market seems to be in play.
