Litecoin (LTC) has been facing an ongoing influx of selling pressure ever since its mining rewards halving that occurred this past-summer, which sparked a deep-cutting sell-off in spite of the fact that many investors and analysts had believed it to be a bullish event.
In the near-term, analysts are noting that they anticipate the cryptocurrency to see further upwards momentum, especially against LTC’s Bitcoin trading pair.
Litecoin May Be Positioned for Upwards Momentum in Coming Months
At the time of writing, Litecoin is trading down just under 2% at its current price of $60.80, which marks a notable drop from LTC’s daily highs of $63.00 that were set yesterday.
Litecoin’s current bearishness, however, may be short-lived, as analysts are noting that the cryptocurrency may be positioned for further gains in the near-term as it recently broke above the upper boundary of a descending triangle that it had been trading in for multiple months.
The Crypto Dog, a popular cryptocurrency analyst on Twitter, spoke about this in a recent tweet, saying:
“I haven’t looked at the $LTC chart in months, just opened to this. Wow,” he said earlier this month while pointing to the chart seen below.

Will LTC’s Bitcoin Trading Pair Skyrocket in Coming Few Months?
“$LTC: While the world is panicking looking at BTC the altcoins are looking better and better. ‘But what if BTC moves and [messes] it up?’ Well tough luck, that’s why we’ve got risk limits. There is no money in covering in fear at support,” he said while pointing to the chart seen below, which elucidates that he anticipates LTC to climb against BTC in the coming few months.
Although Bitcoin is currently showing some bearish signs, it is important to keep in mind that further BTC downside could prove to be a bullish thing for embattled altcoins like LTC.
