There is no real factors that determines the price of Altcoins, it is what the market is willing to pay for it though some things like good news, new update, partnership etc may influence in price. Another thing is the whale pumping the price to unrealistic price

I think the prices of the altcoins depend on the bitcoin.
Altcoins are affected when the demand and confidence of Bitcoin decreases.

There are some factors that do really affects altcoin price which is its market demand if lots of people do really support it then price would really increase and also when bitcoins price tend to go down then altcoin will surely go up because some people decided to put their bitcoins/money switching to altcoin and when bitcoins go up then expect it would do the reverse way.

Actually this is very complicated question.

When appears for the first time price is determined by demand, which is mostly hyped in deeply connected cooperation between devs and pumpres groups.

Later after whales lost their interest, coin going dawn and if survive he will stay in stagnation for a while.
You will always have believers,and sometimes they are right,(sdc,xmr,cloak,nav).

We can tell that altcoins price is determinate with greed and hype.
And when you see 100 pages in one topic, over night, you are on the right place. Roll Eyes

These all come back to supply and demand.

Some are describing how demand is generated but it's still supply and demand.

With crypto the supply is what it is and the demand comes from wherever... Supply and demand.

But please explain to us what cause this demand? When you say supply do you think number of coins in circulation at the moment or what? First you must create demand and it is created through lies and hype, empty promises in most cases,and demand is created from human greed . Artificially  created demand has no future it just a pump.

Supply has nothing to with it, in crypto world you can divide one COIN in millions of pieces.

Most altcoins naturally feed off bitcoins price flop to gain but its not always the case has readily available coins from mining or bounties can have a negative impact to price has holders just want to dump and get a quick buck thereby pulling the price further down...

Not all altcoins depend on bitcoins because there times the price jumps up and some alts follow the trait so its difficult to determine factors that affect them but ”CONFIDENCE” in an altcoin is a good price booster.

Why alts falling when Bitcoin is changed dramatically? Because all alts more or less are in submissive position in front of bitcoin. This wont be changed in near future. ETH and LTC had best chances but nothing happened.
Best and most secure exit from alts is Bitcoin, and fastest exit from BTC is in Dollar. Also all pairs are made on it.
Whay alts dont depend on ETH and LTC rise or fall?

The price determined by the market ... Supply and Demand ... The expected news on a particular coin generate demand for coin and begins to grow ... and vice versa, respectively the same thing happens ...

What determines the price of an altcoin is how much people are willing to pay for it. And you are right, it is also tied to Bitcoin price, as when it rises, altcoins price drop and when it falls altcoins price rise.

ETH and LTC are alts that's why. Most pairs are to and from BTC not ETH or LTC.

1. demands, if a coin is very popular like dogecoin, its market cap is very high although no innovation on dogecoin. XMR, DASH as well.
2. technology, ethereum is the best example of this, ethereum's market cap is NO.2, because its smart contract is the most sophisticated program in the world.
3. miners, look ltc and zcash, miners support the price.

I beg to differ on all those three bullet points!

Zcash first, emissionrate and subsidy are drawing away any investment. One cannot buy, only dump it. Litecoin beeing a slightly different thing since it is closely associated with Bitcoin mining and ASICs manufactoring.

Ethereum DAO fail. WTF Classic, really?

Both Monero and DASH got an edge above DOGE and their current trade value states that in clearly visible numbers. XMR still needs more adoption at their primary niche DNMs and DASH is at least tradeable at almost each and every tradeside.

Yeah I don't agree about miners, most miners sell their coins, they have expanses so they have to sell -at least some portion- what they mine. If too many people mine same coins that's healthy for community though.
Demand and innovative technology is the key point here. More people demand equals higher price.
Most altcoins have little marketcap so we see a lot of manipulative movement. If market grows we see a healthier sector.

Miners always book their profits as they have to pay for electricity and it is not certain that the price of coins hold in the longer run as no one wants to risk their investments and the price is determined by the demand and in turn it is evident in the volume of each coin.Most of the small coins certainly manipulates the volume and pump the price so that innocent investors would invest in it so that the developers dump the coin and make a good profit and these things happen in alt coin trading as there are plenty of useless coins.

I'd normally disagree on miners booking profits regularly, but because we're talking about Altcoins, I would have to heartily agree. Perhaps in the early days, you might have, like bitcoin, miners who were in for the long haul... even for coins like DOGE. Today, only the staunchest of Alts like ETH can truly see a way past the present, and these aren't miners.

Market participants determine the prices of altcoins...and bitcoin as well. 

If you are talking about what influence the price, the biggest one overall is the BTC market price.  When BTC goes up, it drags most of the alts up with it (in fiat terms).  And the opposite is true when it tanks.

Some Alts are moving "anticyclic" as in maintaining their Fiat notation. Ten dollars staying ten dollars, like that. Usually XMR moves like that except recent christmas pump where it tried to follow Bitcoin.
If you are Bitcoin centric, leveraging out these effects can slowly lift your portfolio on a calculateable level gain.

I could also add that alt coins which have more then 20 mil coins avalailable hardly go over a certain value since the demand is far lower then the supply, with some exceptions like Eth...
