The resistance zones at $84 and $70 were demarcated in red and represent a former bullish order block on the 1-day chart. After LTC breached these zones, they were flipped to a bearish breaker. The one at $70 was established in mid-March, and the rally to $100 began in this area.

The past few days of price action showed sellers were overwhelmingly strong. Moreover, the Fibonacci retracement levels showed that, since the 78.6% level based on the move upward was broken, it was likely that LTC would continue downward to the 23.6% extension level southward at $60.23.

There was an FVG on the H4 chart that extended from $65.97 to $72.79 that Litecoin left behind during its rapid descent on 17 August. Therefore, a bounce to $72 was possible to fill this gap before the prices were forced lower once again.

Litecoin slowly climbed higher from $63 to $66.4 over the weekend, but the Open Interest did not see a notable move higher. Over the past few hours, it appeared to tick upward, showing minor short-term bullishness.

The spot CVD was pushing higher too. Together they showed a small influx of capital, but likely not enough to break the market structure.
