Litecoin Price Nears 600% Returns, But Beware of the Potential 73% Pre-Halving Plummet

Litecoin Price Nears 600% Returns, But Beware of the Potential 73% Pre-Halving Plummet

Throughout most of 2019, Litecoin the cryptocurrency forked from Bitcoins codebase by former Google programmer Charlie Lee has led the entire crypto space out of the depths of the longest bear market on record. Much of the bullish sentiment surrounding Litecoin price is being driven by pre-halving speculation. Profit-hungry crypto investors have been buying up Litecoin ahead of a potential price increase.

But with Litecoins halving less than 60 days away, and with the asset nearing 600% returns for investors who boldly took a risk and bought the bottom back in December in anticipation of the pre-halving pump, the rally may soon be running out of steam. One crypto analyst believes that Litecoin price still has room to climb, but has issued an ominous warning that a potential 73% drop could be ahead in the coming days.


Crypto Trader Expects LTC/BTC Ratio to Hit 0.034 In Pre-Halving Spike

Litecoin often leads the crypto market. And ahead of its halving, most of the crypto community has considered the silver to Bitcoins digital gold to be a no brainer of an investment.

Each halving reduces the block reward miners receive for validating the blockchain. Come this August, the amount of LTC miners receive will be reduced from 25 LTC approximately $3,475 at current prices to 12.5 LTC, also reducing the USD equivalent value miners receive for the same amount of effort.

The abrupt shift in the balance of supply and demand, investors believe, creates an increase in price that often gets front run.

That front-running has helped take the price of Litecoin from a bear market low of near $20 to a 600% return as the price nears $140 in the LTC/USD trading pair.

In the LTC/BTC pair, one prominent crypto analyst believes a massive, multi-month cup and handle formation will take the ratio to a target of 0.34 once the formation confirms. If Bitcoin price stays around $8,000, this would bring Litecoin price to roughly $270. If Bitcoin is to climb higher alongside Litecoin while it surges even higher on the ratio, Litecoin could potentially paint new all-time highs in USD value.

10 Days Left of Litecoin Price Pump, Secure Profits Ahead of 73% Drop

If the halving truly was already front run as many crypto investors believe, risk increases by the day that the earliest buyers will begin securing profits, which will stop the rally dead in its tracks and cause a powerful correction.

The same crypto analyst that has lofty price targets for LTC/USD and LTC/BTC and has been accurate in his predictions thus far, believes there are only 10 days left in the rally before the tides sharply turn.

According to the last Litecoin halving back in 2015, the final days leading up to the halving caused Litecoin to absolutely moon, doubling in value relative to Bitcoin. Immediately after buyers began taking profits, Litecoin price fell 73%, as early investors dumped on those FOMOing in too late.

That dump occurred 45 days ahead of Litecoins last halving. The next halving is in less than 55 days. When will you secure Litecoin pre-halving profits? Or will you be left holding a bag?
