Litecoin (LTC/USD) resumed its fall today in wild trade, falling as low as $4.67 on BTC-e. It has since climbed back to $5.07 but the volatility appears to be far from over.

Its declines up to the $7 mark had been protracted over several weeks. But once it broke through its $6.65 support level, the floodgates opened.

While Bitcoin has declined by another 3.5%, Litecoin’s selloff caused the LTC/BTC rate to fall to 0.0087- the lowest level since immediately prior to the multi-fold rise in crypto prices last November, when it traded at 0.0075. Recall that although Bitcoin has retained a large chunk of its gains from that rally, Litecoin has not. Therefore, we are approaching one of the lowest levels in the pair’s history.
