From a technical standpoint, immediate support is $83.5. Furthermore, Litecoin is below the descending trendline (in black in the image above), and the awesome oscillator bars are red below the signal line. The recent selling pressure, which began on May 21, will likely extend to the 23.6% Fibonacci retracement level at $79.7 if the bears maintain their position below the descending trendline at about $85.

Important Notice: The $79.7 is a robust support area because it is backed by the ascending trendline (shown in the daily chart). Litecoin also bounced more than eight times in May from $79.7. That said, analysts at FxNews suggest monitoring this supply zone if the price dips to this level.
