LTC/BTC Exchange Rates More More or Less the Same (Usually within 1%)

We noticed that LTC/BTC exchange rates were higher at in the beginning in September and early October, but since then, they were better on (with the exception of November 7th payout).

The difference was small, usually less than 1%, with the exception of a couple of dates (September 26th payout, when rates at LTCGear were better, and November 14th payout when rates at was better). Had Better Rates for 5 of the Past 9 Weeks

It should be noted that while the LTCGear's exchange rate is accurate (taken from their Farm Payments page),'s rate is always fluctuating, so the LTC/BTC rate could be different from the exchange rates above depending on the time you receive your payouts or when you actually exchange your funds.

That said, of the past 9 weeks, has had better rates than for 5 of the 9 weeks, although usually by a small margin of less than 1%.  So, it's fair to say that rates at were better (for the past 9 weeks), but only by a small margin.

A Tip : If You're Exchanging LTC to BTC, You May Want to Wait for the Next Spike in Bitcoin Price

If you are willing to convert LTC/BTC yourself, you may want to monitor historical LTC/BTC rates, and exchange when LTC/BTC rates are good, historically.

The current exchange rate is around 0.01 BTC.  Considering that exchange rates were in the north of 0.02 BTC for a vast majority of the past year and a half, the current LTC/BTC rates are not that good.

Historically LTC/BTC rate has spiked along with the Bitcoin price hike.  if you look at 2013 April and November, you can see LTC/BTC rates suddenly shot up north of 0.03 BTC, which is 3 times the current rates!

Based on these past trends, it's likely that the next time we see a speculative price appreciation with Bitcoin (which we are convinced WILL happen based on past chart trends), LTC/BTC exchange rate will also suddenly go up.

Although past trends are not guarantee for future performance, charts tend to follow a pattern, and they can tell a lot about what's to come!
