Looking at the chart, LTC price traded as high as $41.13 and later started a downward move. Recently, sellers gained control and pushed the price below the $40.00 and $38.00 support levels.
Sellers pushed the price below the $35.00 support and the 100 hourly simple moving average. Besides, there was a break below a crucial bullish trend line with support at $38.50 on the hourly chart. It opened the doors for more losses below $34.00.

Therefore, there is a risk of more losses below the $32.00 support. The next major support is at $30.00, below which the price may extend losses towards $28.00. On the upside, an initial resistance is at $34.30, above which the price may test $35.00.
Overall, litecoin price clearly moved back in a bearish zone below $38.00 and $36.00. If sellers remain in action, there are chances of further losses below $32.00 and $30.00. On the flip side, LTC must move back above $38.00 to gain bullish traction in the near term.
