As of the time of writing this article, Litecoin is trading at $66.75, having lost 8% in the past 24 hours. Bitcoin, for some perspective, is down 2.5%.

This flash crash comes after LTC saw strong trading sessions last week, benefiting from the micro “altseason” that took place.

Litecoin, Not Dead Just Yet

While Litecoin is clearly suffering, having lost the support of multiple moving averages and with technical indicators flipping negative, it purportedly isn’t dead yet.

The analyst below recently laid out the bull case for the altcoin. He notes that LTC remains above its 50-week moving average, which is important in determining long-term macro trends, and that it has broken to the upside of a descending wedge, implying the potential for a recovery.

Does not look bad

However a daily close below $65 could be dangerous
