Litecoin Bearish Reversal is seen below $87.83

Litecoin to USD exchange rate is ranging near a new record 1-month low. Litecoin continues to move in a mild bearish momentum after its recent decline below the $85.00 level. Litecoin faces resistance at $84.55, at which the price crosses the 9-day moving average, and at $84.77, which is a 14-3 day raw stochastic at 50.
