Title: Why do people sell at 15 when the price could rebound to 30?

Why do people hold at 30 when the price could drop to 15?

I'm just trying to understand the mentality.

Because the price could just as easily drop to $1 again also.  Because people need fiat currency to buy something.  I personally have no intentions to sell under $18, but people always have reasons to sell.  Everytime you buy a bitcoin someone had to sell it.

The price could not drop to $1 since so many people are actively interested in Bitcoin, unless there is a fundamental problem with it.

The market price reflects future expectations.

If everyone thought it would definitely go to 30, the price wouldn't be 15, it would be 30.

i'm not worried long term but I can see people in the short term selling some and hoping to buy back later

there are still a ton of people who got in at pennies per making enormous gains even at 15

It's called "confidence".

If you're confident that the Bitcoin will go to 30, within a "reasonable" amount of time.  You'll hold.
If you're not confident that the Bitcoin will rise, you're more likely to be willing to sell lower.

Additionally, confidence can move the entire market as well.  If everyone is confident the Bitcoin will rise to 30, it will, because there will be no sellers at lower prices.  If confidence is weaker, then more people will be willing to sell lower than the current asking price, and the price will fall, until confidence in the market stabilizes it again.

Also, and perhaps more importantly, every time someone sells a bitcoin, someone else has to buy it... you have to figure people aren't buying bitcoins by the thousands with the expectation the price will plummet :-)

Bitcoin will always have downward pressure because a large portion of miners want to get paid, and not speculate.  Price only gets held up if there's new or renewed interest in bitcoin.  The former means someone just found bitcoin and is interested in participating, the latter means someone who already is interested in bitcoin couldn't resist the new price.

If you see the market going down hard, you should sell some regardless of where you think it will be, especially if you have zero commission.  You can always buy back cheaper.  If it doesn't drop as much as you thought it was you can buy back relatively quickly without too much loss, but if you are right, then you earned yourself more coins, or can keep the same balance and take USD.

The Mt Gox disaster may have been the mortal blow to bitcoin with regard to confidence.   
The bad publicity can be deadly for a new currency.
If so, we know to blame the stupid stupid people behind Mt Gox, and their stupid security, and stupid greedy financial audit of stupidity.

I know people who bought when the price was $ 27 ore even $ 31, so they've lost a lot of money, and do not dare buy more right now, although the price is good compared to when they bought the first time.

In addition, there are many who have lost confidence in the system, they still believe in bitcoin, but it is the stock market that is the problem

and we must not forget that it is not the easiest to get money in to buy.

there are also many flaws in the system, yesterday I got a warning from our system that the price of 1 bitcoin was $ 112.089, but we could not see it anywhere on the market. 2 days ago it was down for 2.99, but you could not buy.

So I think that people who have mining or bought very cheaply want money in their account so they can buy as soon as it drops again and then hope that it rises to what we all hope.

Boy do I disagree with that one. Although BTC trends do not mimic the stock market entirely there are lessons from the stock market that can be applied. MSFT is one of the biggest companies in the world, generates a ton of money and is held by nearly every bank or fund managing firm in some way or another however their stock price has barely moved in 9 years. At the same time Pandora which makes ZERO profit was up 6% alone on Friday yet only a portion of it's stock can be publicly traded. There are far more "people" interested in MSFT but between dilution and shear speculation P trounced MSFT price gains last week.

Right now your seeing holiday selloff. This is a combination of the prior problems with GOX and the theft of coins, speculators taking profits, fewer buyers as buyers with money are on vacation and lastly I think the difficulty itself is driving away the low end miners that thought they could make some free money quick. Geeks get tired of new toys.

What amuses me is every sub-2-dollar move is labeled a 'crash' if going down, and a 'rally' on the way back up. Right now, you have Tradehill at 15 and change, and Gox at 14.30 - and I'm waiting for the 'crash' people to come out of the woodwork.

Just have to develop a longer-term perspective to stay sane, can't react to every damn wiggle.

Hi, I'm one of those selling at 15.  This post will probably get me flamed for not being in the spirit of bitcoin, but here goes:

Every coin I've mined I've sold at the market rate of that day.  It serves me no purpose to hold the coins.  If I need them to purchase, I'll buy back at that point.  Sure, I might be able to make a few dollars by holding them, but only at the expense of someone else who lost money in the system.  I keep less than 1.5 BTC on me at all times and sell immediately.

As long as merchants tie bitcoin to USD this is an interim exchange.  If the coins are $15 USD to 1 then a merchant will charge 1BTC for a $15 item.  If the BTC/USD price goes to $30 to 1, then the merchant will charge 0.5.  Either way, the merchant is going to get their USD equivalent.  Buying them at that point isn't going to harm or hurt me, I'm still getting the product for the same value.

At $15/BTC I've collected about $60 more than if I held everything to now.  Don't get me wrong, I have faith in the system.  I just have no faith in what the day traders are going to do to the economy until it disconnects itself from USD.

Overheard at local restaurant:

Redhead Waitress: How can you afford a car like that on only the tips we make HERE?
Blonde Waitress: Remember last year when that weirdo gave me his phone number and tipped me 20,000 BTC?
Redhead Waitress: Don't tell me you spent it on that car!
Blonde Waitress: Do I look stupid? I invested the rest in the Bitcoin exchange that everyone's been takin' 'bout the past couple weeks--Mt. Gox.
Redhead Waitress: That's smart. I thought you were goin' to tell me you bought a Bitcoin mining rig.
Blonde Waitress: What? Bitcoins are mined? That means that that weirdo got them for free. What a jerkoff!

I've sold because of a few things:

1) Google trends for bitcoin are declining: http://www.google.com/trends?q=bitcoin&ctab=0&geo=all&date=mtd&sort=0
2) With the current price it means we need about $100 000 daily new money inserted into the bicoin economy to stabilize the price - without new people investing in bitcoin this will not happen
3) Media is mostly against bitcoin now - so there will not be many people to try bitcoin now
4) What Ben Laurie wrote is very convincing
5) Lack of instant payments (this can be improved - but this will not be easy)
6) The recent technical failures (and the user interface of TradeHill is a failure too) - decreased my faith in the skills of people running the show

It's possible that I'll buy back when the media is more in favour of bitcoin and I'll let you earn lot's of money, for now I am content with what I've got so far from my investment in March.  But even then I'll probably try to compute some numbers from the Kelly formula to determine how much of this money should I reinvest.

Update: added some more points.

What makes you think it'll ever go back up to 30 again? This is the reason why people sell, because they have no idea. You're dreaming if you think it'll rise back up to 30 any time soon.

Then they were only in it to make a quick buck.  If they bought at $27 or $31, they're insane not to buy an equal amount at $15.  That would make their average price $21 or $23 (respectively).  It's called averaging down.  Right now they have to wait for the price to go to $27+ to break even.  By buying further into the market, they only have to see the price rise to $21+ and then they can get back out.

If one security fail of a business related to Bitcoins and a few bad articles could destroy whole currency, it would mean the currency was flawed from the start. In that case the only one you could blame is you and your stupidity to invest in intrinsically flawed currency (I'm not saying it's the case with Bitcoins, but it may be the case with you if you really believe "MTGox disaster" can kill Bitcoins ).

Also anyone who thinks price will only grow exponentially because more and more people would hash numbers and difficulty would go up, is simply dumb. Even now some people seem to believe that...

2) With the current price it means we need about $100 000 daily new money inserted into the bicoin economy to stabilize the price - without new people investing in bitcoin this will not happen
I keep reading this simplistic calculation but it cannot be justified!

You are implicitly assuming that
  • every mined coin is sold instantly
  • every miner is willing to sell at any price
  • every newly mined coin is bought with "new" USD (ie. not earned by selling BTC)
No new money is strictly needed to stabilize the price - just think of a scenario where the trade volume at the exchanges is very low, then the price could be "stabilized" with very few trades (hence new money).

Even the trade volume of the exchanges does not give a good indication of the actual new money influx because there are a lot of short term speculants and daytraders. It is very hard to say how much new money is put into the Bitcoin economy but the 50*6*24*price calculation is really not very credible.

Were you being serious when you said that?

If the USD isn't losing value, the only reason is that it's being propped up so as not to burn in a fiery crash.  Left unchecked, the dollar would collapse much faster than it already is.

Uh, yes, they're "worth" a dollar still.  But a Bitcoin is still worth a Bitcoin too.

The real question is, tomorrow, can you buy as much with that US Dollar as you could today?  They just upped the price of Diet Pepsi in our vending machine today, so clearly, today I cannot buy as much Diet Pepsi as I could yesterday.  But my dollar is still worth a dollar!  So confusing....

This is what happen when were investing here just for easy money,because in the time of dip,were rushing our self to sell the coins even if theres a potential increase or rebounds no matter whats the reason,still we must be ready in falling not always growing..

this question remain same after years. but the value is different now.
why did people sell at $6k when the price could rebound to $9k ?
last month bitcoin price has fallen to $6k, and now bitcoin price is almost $9k.
the answer is because they was afraid that bitcoin will continue falling to $0.

Why did you gravedig a post from 2011 LOL? Bitcoin was actually $15 then. I suspect this is around the time the price flash crashed from $40.

That's the true fact, there is no assurance that the price will reach 30, we believe and hope the best to happen. In between things can go out of prediction when there are regulatory compliance and other financial pressure towards the community from the governing bodies.

People tend to panicked. They might loss rather than gain when it drops. Or the other way around. They will also gain big if they hold it a bit longer. The nature of BTC will put you in a crossroad and you should make an abrupt decision on what road will you take.

because no one really can predict the condition of the market condition for next 30 min or a 3 days more, even if they're skilled trader all of it are just analysis. 10% analysis and 90% market make its own decision.

plus with uncertain circumstances such as "there is new news that bitcoin is banned in xxx country"

That would depend on the person's decision as to why they sell it at that price. Perhaps at 15, they were able to gain profit and if the reason is they were afraid that it might still decline and lose their money, they lack confidence and belief on their investment. However, If I am in their position, I would not hesitate to hodl for a longer period where I believe it will make an increase when the right time comes. Always believe it will happen and don't let your emotions do your decision making.

It's because they afraid that the price will go down deeper without knowing that it could bounce back multiple times. The only key is hold and be patient because world of crypto is built-in unexpected change and flactuation of price is normal.

Yes it's true, but if you are only aware that crypto cycle is like a roller coaster sometimes down and sometimes up, there's nothing to be worry with the downsize of price. Wait for the right time because it really gives great profits.

Impatience Is the reason why,Most people especially bounty hunters are impatient  and unwilling to let the coin grow. Most are overjoyed with the amount available when the coin has just make the exchange or gained value slightly, so much that they tend to sell off cheaply without waiting for them to realize the potential they have. The fear that the coin might might slip to a lower value i also a huge factor as to which people to sell early and cheaply

Yeah it brings us up to the old times where bitcoin is at such low price and holders are also panicking. History repeats itself so panickers will are being passed to the new generation.
While the ones who remains strong and faithful to bitcoin are now happy with the profits they got and probably some are still hopeful that it will increase to an unexpected price.

They hold it because possible it is profitable if holding worth the time
Sell when the price drops more due to panic that it will continue to dump and lose its value.Thats the real scenario of a panic seller,no profit as long as to cut their losses.

Anyway, we are not authorized to change the actions of other users in this forum so we might as well respect their decisions. To that end, I will now go back to acquiring more bitcoin so that I will have the biggest profit in this year's last quarter.

Most of my friends called me how to buy ETH when it was above 1k. I told them wait. Some wait and bought around 800, some wait and bought around 500, some didn't buy when I called them and it was under 400. They read it will go to 100...Now they regret. It is at least the 3rd time in last 2 years when I see this happening, I believe this is simply human behaviour. Everybod wants to buy when it goes up, few want to buy when it goes down, only very few wanna buy when it's extreme cheap...I guess that's life...During the hype they don't know how to make account and transfer fiat faster (FOMO), during the dump I told them to prepare and do those things since it takes time, but they say: why should I buy now? It's going down. Than, later, FOMO again. Due to this I don't even respond to their questions anymore.

Sometimes it can't be helped. There would be situations wherein a person would be forced to sell at a  lower price. I think it stems from them not being able to afford bitcoin's long term hold time. You have to be ready to have your btcs in your wallet for more than a year because if not you'll fall prey to its volatility

Well, I believe that there is lack of knowledge, vision and patience among the investors when they get themselves under the fear of missing out. I always try to follow the principles of Warren Buffet (even though he has different opinion about crypto, we can't ignore his authority in investing), he says "Be fearful when others are greedy and be greedy when others are fearful" because investors usually blindly follow the market sentiments instead of using it for making profit out of it.

On the other hand, those who sold crypto at the lower price I think because they need cash so bad, so whatever the price they will sell their crypto and just don't care, all i can say this industry is so unpredictable.

There is such a saying - if you knew when and where you fall, I would put a soft pillow.

Will grow to 30 or not grow, not who exactly does not know, but if you recorded profits, then will not regret the fall of the market.

We cannot predict and exactly understand the mentality of people. We all know that the VA of bitcoin has been going through many ups and down in the last past 6 months and I think it has down to its maximum lower limit so people could be in penic that they could suffer very huge loses if the valuation does not recover to its normal level and this could be the most probable reason why people are in penic in selling their bitcoins instead they can get much more profit because I am very sure that valuation will recover to its maximum value.

Don't forget that the weak hands will sell at anytime, whether it is a good price or not. They even sell at a loss once they notice any slight drop in price. But if nobody sells, will there be any to buy? That is what makes a market active. Even an urgent need can drive anyone to sell at anytime.

The biggest reason I think people want to sell bitcoin at this price is the psychological reason to wait so long. Many people bought it at relatively low rates earlier this year. And they have been waiting for a long time to bring in big profits. with  $ 15,000 price  is quite appropriate for them to sell because of the fear that prices will continue to fall.

Most of us luck the Virtue of patience, we cant just wait to make the money that we tend to utilize every opportunity that presents itself so much so that we miss better opportunities that we would have had if only we held on, This especially applies for the bounty hunters, the moment we  get the rewards all we see is to sell them off and make something off it, if only we could be more patient with these coins we might stand high chances of making the most out of them

There are many factors that cause it to happen, and everyone will want to sell bitcoin when its value is high, and that's become everyone's knowledge on bitcoin investment. But in life sometimes someone is faced with a necessity of life that must be fulfilled so must give up to sell his bitcoin at a low price.

July 2011 and now June 2018! 7 Years have gone. We haven't see the 30K Mark, we just have seen 19K Plus. And the sorrow thing is we are now under 8K USD! No one can predict well about bitcoin. It proves by this thread. And my answer is already given here, I wanna add a little more, Why we don't sell at 20-25K USD when the price comes down to 10K USD again!

It's all about Patience which some people don't seem to have, Most people sell because there may be a slump and others because they believe that they have made enough profits.

I'm just trying to understand the mentality.

Because the price could just as easily drop to $1 again also.  Because people need fiat currency to buy something.  I personally have no intentions to sell under $18, but people always have reasons to sell.  Everytime you buy a bitcoin someone had to sell it.

The price could not drop to $1 since so many people are actively interested in Bitcoin, unless there is a fundamental problem with it.

Do you have an interesting point of view, and why can not there be a fundamental reason and bitcoin will drop to 1 dollar?
The bitcoin rate will hang like everything in the real world from demand - if it is not interesting it will not be bought.
P.S. But we, as convinced users of the forum know that bitcoin will soon be 30,000 dollars ;)

Everyone can not predict that prices will rise or fall in the future. So the safest method is to sell when you make a profit. If we risk and when prices fall, we will lose capital at any time

Until we get to know the price at which the seller bought his/her coin, we can not talk much about it. Perhaps some people do not need 30 simply because 15 is already so big a profit for them. Again people sell because there are buyers and it is this activity of buying and selling which propels the market.

I think they will regret their decision very much! No one has the ability to meet the future, maybe BTC was worth so much!

Because I have no faith in BTC, I missed a lot of money! So now HODL BTC, wait for the price to go up!

We dont loose capital as long as we dont sell our coins, we only loose if ever we sell it on a lower price because we cannot possibly recover it anymore. We need to face the risk of holding in order to earn much higher than we expected but we are also tempted if we already see a big increase on the price of our coins , thats why we ended up selling it for an initial price rather than waiting it for its full peak.

Doing those decision is not a bad idea , instead The worst idea would be deciding to sell your coins on a verry low price in order to cut your losses.

There are some investors in this business who bought some amount of bitcoin when it hit its absolute maximum value, and unlike those people, I know I am always safe (and hopefully will always be) from loosing everything since even when the market is very unstable I still have confidence in getting 700% profit from what I put into the bitcoin.

You can't judge other people if you don't know their personal situation.
They maybe have some family urgency situation and need money quickly.
They maybe find some other great business and need money to invest.
Many different reasons are possible, so better don't judge them to easy.
Also, bitcoin market is risky, like every other market out there.

there are sellers and buy at 30. This is the general rule, order matching trading is the buyer and seller made.

Many people want to get rich quickly and do not understand the essence of investment. Many inexperienced people are afraid to lose everything or listen to negative sources of information. In order to know what to do with investments, you need to understand the basics.

Yes, it is so difficult to imagine if everyone will hold firm enough to the extent that nobody will sell at a certain time. All will be frozen, stagnant.

There are so many factors that makes them sell at 15
Also it's something that's personal and varies from person to person ,
maybe he thinks he have made enough maybe there is a bad need in the family.
Even panic selling
Fraud news
State laws
Banks not accepting widrawls from bitcoins.
We cannot mark a single statement so as why they do this but at the end of the day it's just some personal set of preferences and also offcourse the influence from the market and news.

said a simple question but sad for traders. LOL

it's true Altcoins can go up again but Cryptocurrrency prediction can not be guessed as it's easy to break the chicken eggs directly broke with one hand.
So there are some people who are afraid when the price of cryptocurrency falls and wants to buy the coin in him to go up.

Some people are impatient that's why they want to rush sell their bitcoin, some are afraid that instead of price going up it's going down actually making their loss bigger. Some people purely want to disengage in cryptocurrency because they don't believe it anymore.

because no one will know exactly the price can reach 30, if all know and can guess the market price can reach 30, surely no one will sell it at 15, if buy at very low price and then can reach 15 it is very profitable, not must wait up to 30.

For me it is such a three words, a choice, reason and decision making. Every person has a choice making of what they think they can help and what help them to earn good enough. And p we have different reason also in every choice we made. We also have different decission of every choices we have for us to think what is the best thing to do and to less the risks factor that we might encounter.

Well thats what you called panic selling. I will regret that much if thats gonna happen to me. But on the other hand no one can predict that the price will be going 30. You think 15 is enough for supporrt for your needs specially in financial or in other.

You have to understand that when they are scared they will not be alert enough. When dozens of information passes to their heads, Bitcoin will reduce that Bitcoin is a scam. They will sell out and immediately the sharks will buy at cheap prices

Well the magic word here is could which really holds no guarantee, you see. It is better to secure your 15 than to have maybe 30 or maybe 5 in the future.

I don't know what you mean by 15 here, but the true question inside this question is whether the price could actually rebound to 30. If you don't believe that it really will or don't believe that it will rebound at all, then it doesn't make any sense to keep the asset in question. Strictly speaking, it is not about mentality at all. If people knew for certainty that the price would rebound within their investment horizon, mentality, personality or whatever would be irrelevant as long as we want profits. And we all want profits.

They may have some of reasons why they decided to sell their coins instead of still waiting for the price to spike up. One reason is that they badly needed the money right at that moment or they already reached their cap they set for them to withdraw, or they are influenced by surroundings.

Cryptocurrency is too volatile and this is unpredictable as nothing is sure about the price. It could be a good decision to sell at 15 rather than going down to 1. You can't blame on their decision because in the end it's their money involve. Nothing bad as long as it's a profitable decision.

There are people who needs fast profit like those who are working to earn cryptocurrency in order to sustain their daily needs, that's the reason why others want to get profit immediately.

Mostly sell for $ 15,000 of those involved in trading. People sell for this amount, expecting to buy, for several days for $ 10,000 and below. The same investors who buy Bitcoin for the long term, do not sell at this level. I think the next good sale will be at $ 50,000. Although, I'm generally against selling digital gold, even for $ 100,000. Bitcoin and all the crypto currency market - this is a promising future. There is nothing surprising there, people sell for $ 10,000. Bought for $ 6500, - sold for $ 10,000. Then again I bought for $ 8,000. What is wrong and surprising in this? On the other hand, there are people who do not believe in Bitcoin's perspective, so they sell. But their minority.

And some other may want to sell at 15, to buy the deep that they saw coming to later sell at 30 at even higher profit. There may be as many motivations as there are people selling at 15.

In the end, the reason is because of fear, fear that their investment gains are gone, so they will sell after the price rises by half.

Impatience and frustration is killing the investors heart and mind and selling their much beloved coin is their way of coping with all the anxieties building. Great fear of losing more is also another factor i am seeing as to why this scenario is happening.

because no one knows what will happen next, when the price is rising next it is likely that the price will go down. most people don't want to take risks or they will buy again when the price is cheap.

in my opinion it is only because traders experience panic that makes the end decide to sell coins at a very cheap price and it can hurt you not to do that.
