Litecoin [LTC], the 7th largest cryptocurrency that was created by Charlie Lee to provide compatibility and support to Bitcoin has not been doing well in the market, of late. The coin was booming earlier this year but has now slumped lower than ever to move sideways.

At the time of writing, LTC dumped by 1.77% in the cryptocurrency market. It is trading at $52.34 with a market cap of over $3 billion and a 24-hour trading volume of $267.4 million.

In the timeframe of 1-hour LTC candlesticks, the support is set at $53.02. The downtrend line from $60.7 to $53.9 is likely to form a descending triangle with the support. Hence, the market for Litecoin appears to be downwards.

The MA line in the MACD indicator touched the signal for a bullish crossover but strung back down to run underneath it. This is suggestive of a slump in the LTC price trend.

Next, the RSI is also betting on a bear market for the cryptocurrency, currently taking a downhill walk to flash warning for a drop in price.

The Klinger Oscillator made a bullish crossover a while back but is currently crashing, suggesting a bad price trend for Litecoin.

In the 1-day scenario, the candlesticks appear to be experiencing a downward trend in the Litecoin market. Since May, the coin has broken multiple supports, including one at $53.3 and another at $51.7. Currently, the support is set at $53.2 and might act as the baseline for the descending triangle likely to be formed by the resistance line ranging from $179.1 to $54.3.

The Parabolic SAR is bullish on the LTC market wherein the dots are currently dancing below the candlesticks, uplifting the price trend of the coin.

The Chaikin Money Flow was in a balanced space for a while but is currently below the 0-line, crashing further down.

The Awesome Oscillator is also in the red-zone, flashing a danger sign for the cryptocurrency.



Conclusion:

The technical analysis can be concluded by assuming a bearish trend for the Litecoin market since most of the indicators are evident in siding with a negative prediction. However, the Parabolic SAR in the 1-day timeframe looks positive of the situation, against all odds.

Waves, the 29th largest cryptocurrency, hit lows against BTC on April 17, and users speculated that this could have been due to a massive sell order.

Waves, at press time, was trading a $2.71 with a market cap of $270 million and had a trading volume of $15 million. However, on April 17, the price of Waves hit rock bottom due to a massive sell-off similar to one that Ethereum witnessed a few years back.

As seen in the above chart, the price of Waves against BTC hit exactly 0.0000001 BTC, which amounts to 1 Satoshi. The volume for the said candle is also massive, further confirming a sell order of massive amounts. The coin has since increased by approximately 3% against Bitcoin in under 24 hours.

Crypto enthusiasts on Twitter couldn’t hold back their opinions as one user, @BitBitCrypto tweeted



“- $WAVES did not trade at 1sat, it traded at 10sat
– It is still a great project and with a huge potential
– This sell order has nothing to do with WAVES (the project)
– This trade wasn’t done on Binance web cause you can’t place this low, it was API
– I didn’t buy it at 10 sat”

Another user @BITCVIX tweeted:

TradingView commented on this matter saying:

“Something strange is always happening in the #crypto market”
