LITECOIN flag breakout forming, but fate tied to Bitcoin

BITSTAMP:LTCUSD   Litecoin / Dollar
- Has been forming a flag since the 17th Dec 17
- Recent surge followed Bitcoin             .
- A breakout downward could see Litecoin reach towards $100.

Litecoin continues to follow Bitcoin's steps with the 6th Jan 18 surge up from $243 to $303 happening around the same time as Bitcoin's short recovery. It's also moving sideways forming a flag shape with a possible breakout in a few days from now.

But look at the height of that flag...About $375 to $175 from the top to the bottom. A breakout downward could mean seeing Litecoin aiming back below $100, though $150 and $100 should show support. But a breakout upwards? We then run into a strange situation. A breakout upward may see any new all time high limited by Bitcoin             as Bitcoin             approaches the 20k barrier (unless of course it breaks through it). For Bitcoin             , the ceiling isn't far away and the bottom is a very long drop. For Litecoin, there's no nearby established ceiling yet but the current price isn't that far from the bottom.

As I place my entry at around $270 from a breakout upwards and $230 for a downward breakout, I then look over at Bitcoin             and wonder whether a breakout would trigger any TP I set. The last head and shoulders on Bitcoin             saw the price touch upward trend support line 3 times. With the past two heads and shoulders taking 8 to 10 days each and with Litecoin approaching the flag tip sooner, I'm thinking that rather than breaking out we might see it travel sideways (forming a rectangle ) until Bitcoin             finds direction.

Buying Litecoin in the 100's would sure be a plus and something I'd hodl for a while. Should Litecoin progress back up in the 300s, it's still not that pricey. Might play it patient with this one.

And now for the disclaimer!

What exactly is the relation ship between Bitcoin and Litecoin? Litecoin goes up people sell to Bitcoin or what? I don't really see it.
