Litecoin Price Negative Momentum On The Rise

Looking at the IOMAP, the Litecoin price has a moderate-to-strong support wall at $150. Previously, at this level, ~45,000 addresses had purchased <700,000 LTC tokens. It shouldn’t take a lot of selling pressure to successfully break below this level.
Litecoin Price On-Chain Analytics
The MVRV Z-Score is used to assess when Litecoin is over/undervalued relative to its "fair value". When market value is significantly higher than realized value, it has historically indicated a market top (red zone), while the opposite has indicated market bottoms (green zone). Technically, MVRV Z-Score is defined as the ratio between the difference of market cap and realized cap, and the standard deviation of market cap, i.e. (market cap – realized cap) / std(market cap). LTC MVRV Z-Score just reached a 5-month low of 0.421.
Litecoin Price Is Expected To Reach These Levels
The Litecoin price will likely break towards the $155 support wall. If this line doesn’t hold strong, then LTC will definitely tumble towards the $100 psychological level.
