Sell Near Trend Line?

After a decline in Litecoin price, the price stabilized around $3.27 and showing signs of a consolidation pattern. The price already corrected a few points higher, and currently trading near the 23.6% Fib retracement level of the last drop from the $3.49 high to $3.27 low. There is a bearish trend line on the hourly chart with data feed from Bitfinex, which is acting as a hurdle for the bulls and preventing an upside move.

If there is a break above the first bearish trend line, then there is a chance of the price moving towards the second bearish trend line on the same chart. Moreover, traders must also keep an eye on the 50% Fib retracement level of the last drop from the $3.49 high to $3.27 low.

On the downside, the $3.30-25 levels holds a lot of importance for the price. A break below it may call for more losses that could take it towards $3.10.
