The first circle you are drawing is when BTC was already reaching ATH's, it actually only went down in ratio when BTC started to uptrend after having it's 65usd dip/correction. imo we have just had that dip/correction @ 276usd and it took us twice as long to get there. I wouldn't be surprised if we go into another long downtrend for ltc/btc reaching as low as 0.00499 to stop on the feb spike of 2012. LTC tends to spike when BTC has already reached ATH's and I believe we are just halfway for BTC and could see another 10-11months of slow uptrend before we go into another -bubble- consolidation at 1000USD BTC will be a good time to buy ltc on the ltc/btc market, I could see a huge buy-in at that period but not sooner. If we get to 1000usd for consolidation sooner than I still believe this will be the period ltc/btc will attract buyers.
