    Latest Litecoin price and analysis (LTC to USD)

    Litecoin (LTC) experienced exponential growth earlier this year. Prior to mid-June, Litecoin was the best performing coin in 2019, growing more than 170% in less than 90 days and peaking at around $145. However, after a couple of substantial falls toward the end of June and into early July, LTC dropped to as low as $80 before recovering again. Unfortunately, Litecoin has suffered yet more downward momentum in August, and is currently trading at just above $75 after falling about 18% from $91 over the past week. Price has now also fallen below a key support level at $77. Let's take a look at the chart. Litecoin has dropped below all its EMAs and price currently seems to be inThe post Latest Litecoin price and analysis (LTC to USD) appeared first on Coin Rivet.

    Bitcoin Stood Still in Anticipation of Halving

    Since August 10, BTC has been squeezed in a narrow range of around $11,400 and so far it experiences difficulties with determining the further direction. The current price dynamics are taking place against the background of the decline in trading volumes: according to CMC, over the last 7 days they have fallen by 42%. This may indicate a temporary loss of interest of investors, who prefer to stay aside waiting for new impulses.

    Litecoin continues to plummet following highly anticipated halving

    Despite being tipped to have a strong second half of 2019 following its third 'halving', Litecoin has struggled to maintain any positive momentum and has subsequently fallen in price by more than 18% since the block mining reward was slashed from 25 to 12.5 earlier this month. It's worth noting that leading up to the halving, Litecoin experienced five months of solid price action to the upside, rising by more than 350% as retail traders latched onto the hope that Litecoin would continue to rally after the halving. However, the reality is that the halving seems very much like a 'buy the rumour, sell the news' type of event, with seasoned traders taking profits weeks before the event took place.The post Litecoin continues to plummet following highly anticipated halving appeared first on Coin Rivet.
