Some people assumed LTC0.26% was dead when ETH came around, but I don't buy it. I believe the ETH bubble has popped, and after everything that has happened with The DAO, it's value relative to will slowly deflate over the next 6 months or so, it may have long-term promise, but it has a lot to figure out. The DAO fiasco will likely be seen in hindsight as a MT-15.80% GOX caliber event, which will take time to recover from. Also, bitcoin's value is driven a lot from global economic uncertainty, as it is a scarce, immutable asset, and money, ETH's potential use-cases are totally unrelated to this. Anyway, I don't see why it has any influence on ltc0.26% outside of the fact that they both compete for liquidity.
People like to say Litecoin is a copy and paste of , as if this is an insult. To me it is not, Satoshi contemplated using scrypt for , I believe it was one of his hardest choices. Litecoin is one of two scarce, immutable, secure (high $ amount to 51% attack) blockchains in the world. It has also been a speculative toy for China, the CNY-0.38% market dominates its price, possibly even more so then .
The same reasons why is valuable for yuan devaluation, could be, to an extent applied to litecoin as well, or at least that narrative can be created. If it were to bubble here it would be the standard not the exception, so I don't see why not to expect it. Just seems like at these low levels, but of course never risk more than you can afford to lose, and use appropriate stops.
