Litecoin (LTC) has seen exponential growth since the beginning of March, with a small bump in the road during April which quickly dissipated going into May. Prior to mid-June, Litecoin was the best performing coin in 2019, growing more than 170% in less than 90 days. However, after a couple of substantial falls toward the end of June and into early July, LTC is currently trading at just above $118, and the market now seems to be moving sideways. Will Litecoin turn things around and continue its move upwards? Or will price drop closer to the $99-$102 support area? My personal belief is traders should be careful at the moment, as sideways markets are useful for accumulation but also risky.The post Latest Litecoin price and analysis (LTC to USD) appeared first on Coin Rivet.
