Bitcoin has recorded a steep drop from around $6,675 to where it currently sits at $6,216.26. Many are attributing the recent downturn to a massive transfer totaling almost 16,000 BTC.  Whatever the cause, much of the market has responded accordingly with almost all major altcoins reporting losses. As the top 10’s bleed, the Litecoin LTC price is now trading at $38.31 at the time of writing, down over three percent over the last 24 hours. 

Traders expecting further losses

However, despite the bears being firmly in control, trader Alex Clay has provided two possible scenarios to Litecoin’s future. As per his analysis, the Litecoin LTC price has formed a broadening wedge bullish pattern. As such, he has suggested two possible buying zones. The first one being once the LTC price has broken the strong resistance level set at $38.60, Litecoin should see further gains. On the other hand, if the LTC price fails to break resistance, we could see a retracement to about $37.00 which marks the second buying opportunity.
