1
The block reward was cut half at the very start of selected period for LTC i.e., 5 Aug 2019 and relatively later as for BTC i.e., 11 May 2020, which is one of the reasons for the results

May be if the allocated coins for swapping spots are distributed exponentially, it may bring better results i.e., more swapped coins at RSI 90 than the number swapped at RSI 51
