Looking at the 2-hours chart of LTC/USD, the pair traded as low as $75.63 and later consolidated for a few hours. Finally, the price traded above the $80.00 resistance and the 25 simple moving average (2-hours).

There was a break above the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last drop from the $99.04 high to $75.63 low. The price even climbed above the $84.00 level, but it struggled to clear the key $85.50-86.00 resistance (the previous support area).

Besides, the price failed near a major bearish trend line with current resistance at $83.90 on the same chart. There was also no test of the 50% Fib retracement level of the last drop from the $99.04 high to $75.63 low.

In the short term, the price might dip again towards the $80.00 support and the 25 simple moving average (2-hours).  However, declines are likely to be limited and the price could bounce back.

To the topside, a convincing break above the trend line and follow through above the key $85.50-86.00 resistance is needed for a fresh increase towards the $92.00 and $98.00 resistance levels.

Alternatively, if litecoin price fails to climb above $84.00, there are chances of a break below the $80.00 support. The main support is near $75.50, below which LTC price will most likely extend losses towards $68.00.
