The drop in September is due to China exiting out of the market. That was a special case that I don't think will happen again unless Japan or Korea ban ICOS which will never happen. The correction is already underwent as recently all coins went down 20% after Bitcoin was overbought to 11K.
I posted a similar thing the other day. The thing I like about LTC is it moves pretty predictably. I do think the CME futures has the potential to influence this though. I guess we'll see. The market has changed a lot in the last few months.
ummm pretty sure the drop in Sep was due to China news and across the board drop in BTC and ALTs... there is no similar negative news out there at the moment - just people speculating about psychological barrier of 10K Bitcoin.
