Litecoin [LTC] Price Analysis
The market structure of Litecoin [LTC] was bearish in mid-February after a price rejection at $103. This caused LTC to depreciate by 20% since then and increased selling pressure on the cryptocurrency.
Impact of U.S. Employment Report
The U.S. Employment Report on Friday (March 10) could offer definite price action over the next few days/weeks and is worth tracking, especially for macro-investors.
A better-than-expected job report could lead to a market rally and boost LTC’s recovery, while dismal results would exert more selling pressure.
Price Action Outlook
At press time, Litecoin’s price rebounded from the immediate crucial support at $81.89 and could come to the bulls‘ rescue if the jobs report is impressive.
Long-term bulls must defend this support level in order to keep bears off the market; otherwise, LTC could face aggressive selling if bears break below it.
