1  Economy / Speculation / Re: Bitcoin will reach all-time-high before halving. - BitQuant on: September 26, 2023, 08:34:04 PM
Like all patterns at some point it may be broken but I do not think the market is ready for it now, and this is because even if the power of the halving has been weakening over the years as the amount of bitcoin left to mine is getting lower, at the same time we have more money than ever moving in bitcoin and yet there are still many people which have not adopted it, and with the expectations the halving will create a serious pump, all of those people will push bitcoin to experiment another bull run some time after the halving happens.

I believe the halving will indirectly encourage a gradual increase in the price of bitcoin. Miners who have to accept smaller rewards really hope that the price of bitcoin is commensurate with the costs they incur to run the industry, but if this fails then the miners will go bankrupt and this will impact the industry as well.

Halving must be able to encourage a reasonable price increase, not just take everything out and throw it away. I don't expect that to happen to bitcoin although there are concerns about it.

Mallorca is winning the match presently, bit I know that there is still enough time for Barca to equalise the goal and win the match. Moriqi  scored the only goal in the match presently on the 8th minutes to break the deadlock for his club. In Barca previous match this was how they did a welcome back and won the match, that is why I trust Barca to win this game. Mallorca is really defending their one goal and also trying to score another goal but it hasn't been easy for both clubs to just score very easy, as everyone is playing with care.

There were several mistakes that Barcelona had to correct in the second half, especially in defense and also the finishing of the striker. Barcelona made two mistakes in defense which saw them concede two goals, but so far Barcelona has been quite good at building attacks.

In the first half Barcelona had several good opportunities to take the lead over Mallorca, but Ferran, Raphinha and Joao Felix did not manage to take advantage of them well. Mallorca was lucky about their second goal, but this was very natural considering that Barcelona only had one player left in their defense line. It was a quick counter-attack scheme from Mallorca to take the first half lead with a 2-1 win.

Pochettino might as well count his days as headcoach of Chelsea because his clock is ticking, the supporters keep echoing and chanting about his sack during games at Stamford Bridge. Losing 1 nil was a dissapointing results for the blues, they never expected a red card for the defendlines. Malo Gusto tackle was probably based on gaining the ball, but with irrelevant raising up his boot towards his opponent, making it everything clear as a deliberate action. Chelsea previous game against Aston Villa, experiencing defeat was not part of the plan, instead they would have settle for a draw tie.

Chelsea today is no longer the Chelsea of ​​old where there were many experienced players who could control the game plan. Currently the Chelsea squad is filled with new players who basically still need adaptation, so it is always normal that many of their plans still fail and fans have to be patient with the process.

I don't expect Pochettino to be fired before finishing the first half of the season. Even though Pochettino also failed, at least Chelsea gave him a chance. Pochettino should have the courage to rotate his strikers or try experimenting with changing the positions of his players, so maybe this will have a good impression on the result of the match.

Xavi seems to have made many changes in determining the formation to 4-2-3-1, Lewandowski is not an option in the starting XI this time. Joao Felix fills the number 9 role, Xavi tries to adapt his formation to suit Mallorca conditions.

There is no change in strategy where Xavi still tends to use a 4-3-3 formation. Joao Felix, Ferran Torres and Raphinha are the 3 strikers in this match, but player rotation like this is really important considering their busy schedule at the end of the month.

Lewandowski and Kounde were not included in Xavi's main line-up against Mallorca, but I think these two players are ready to play if Xavi's plans for this match are not as expected. Ferran replaced Lewandowski as a center forward, while Raphinha and Felix both played at wingers. I hope Xavi can give playing minutes to Lewandowski and Lamine Yamal in this match, but Fermin Lopez also needs to get more opportunities to prove his abilities.
5  Economy / Trading Discussion / Re: Trading or investment! What's your take? on: September 25, 2023, 06:22:37 PM
Investing and trading are two distinct ways of making money from financial markets. Investing means buying and holding a portfolio of stocks for an extended length of time at the right time. Trading is the frequent buying and selling of stocks to profit from price fluctuations driven by supply and demand considerations as well as overall market mood. But investors with long-term holdings are better positioned to diversify their investments and reduce the risk of large losses. Learn about trading before trading traders who buy and sell only a few popular stocks have less diversified portfolios, so the movement of any one stock has a greater impact on their financial health.

Regardless of which one is best, I believe both of these options have their respective advantages and disadvantages. People who tend to be able to take advantage of market volatility due to their expertise will certainly take advantage of it to gain profits in the short term instead of just hoping for returns in the long term. Of course they can trade and invest at the same time, but trading tends to involve a lot of risk due to price volatility.

I avoid day trading as much as I can, but that doesn't mean I'm incapable of exploiting volatility to make a profit. Long term investing tends to make me more comfortable although I may occasionally use 10% of my DCA budget to trade.

You are right, watching Real Madrid's games shows that Real Madrid lacks good strikers. Although Real Madrid started in a good position this season, now day by day Real Madrid's position is going down. A few days ago, it was seen that Real Madrid was in the number one position with the highest points in the La Liga points table. But Real Madrid has lost two consecutive matches and has now moved to the 3rd place in the La Liga points table. Now, if the coach of Real Madrid can't solve the striker problem quickly, maybe slowly, slowly, Real Madrid will take a position at the bottom of the La Liga points table.

There are many luck factors that play an important role in Real Madrid's winning streak in the previous 5 matches in La Liga. But they really proved to be failures when they met a team that was more solid in terms of play and quality of players.

Most people were worried about Real Madrid's defeat yesterday, but their fans' optimism about winning considering their positive results so far was apparently stopped by Atletico Madrid. Ancelotti doesn't need to blame himself for the defeat, but I hope he is brave enough to blame Perez for his selfishness in not bringing in a quality striker during the transfer window. I hope Barcelona can take advantage of any weaknesses Real Madrid has this season to gain points and lead the standings until the end of the season.

Liverpool also have many players whose quality is almost the same as that of Chelsea, but Klopp is here to improve it and get his players into the best shape. He turned his team into a competitive team even though Klopp has not won as many titles as Manchester City. Pochettino must learn from Klopp and Arteta instead of being a coach who tends to stay silent on the sidelines.

I donít think the quality of both teams are the same. Liverpool has leaders in the club, Salah, Allison, Van Dyke and Andre Robertson are all senior players that can affect every game and also they can show character when the team is down or losing. But look at this current Chelsea squad, aside Thiago Silva they donít have leaders and a team of young players are just too much to handle something because they usually feel on top of the world.

You have to understand me correctly, of course because I don't mean to say the quality of both teams is the same but that some of the players have the same quality. Liverpool certainly have many players whose quality and experience are much better than Chelsea's current young squad, this clearly differentiates the two teams as a whole and I will not dispute that fact.

What has been proven so far in Chelsea's last 6 matches is; Pochettino has not really been able to create a good playing character for Chelsea. I think Chelsea is still losing the identity of their game and Pochettino really needs a lot of time to get it back. There are many matches still waiting for them in the Premier League, so the hope is definitely there.

Chelsea Should have kept some of there senior players last Season and integrate the young ones into the team gradually. Right now they donít have any other options other than to just be patient with them and accept that this is a project and all high expectations should be dropped.

Chelsea also have the habit of just signing any player and not exactly the players they need. They waste close to 300million on three midfielders with similar characteristics and playing pattern, they should have opted for a more attacking midfielder and a proper striker rather than some of this signings

Do you agree that there are certain individual or group interest factors in Chelsea's transfer approach so far?
I might agree that the player transfer business to Chelsea has been very important, this is reflected in how easily they spend a lot of money on mediocre players.

There have been many bad signings made by Chelsea so far, as a result they have difficulty forming a solid team capable of competing closely in the standings. Pochettino is still having difficulty finding his best line-up, but he still has time to experiment.

Well, Chelsea needs to wait and trust the process as they have no other options or alternatives. In the chelsea squad there are average defenders and poor strikers; 0 goalscorers at all and injured creative midfielders. No manager will succeed in such circumstances, and sacking and employing new managers without getting a striker will only push Chelsea project into more terrible circumstances.

The Chelsea team is bad and not good enough; the earlier supporters accepts this, the lower the expectations too.

Chelsea don't need to fire Pochettino after just 6 games, but they need to push him to get his team better. I don't think Pochettino managed to make the team's dressing room any more lively regardless of the outcome of the match, but tensions became more likely. Pochettino has to start from small things and improve them, that includes improving the atmosphere in his team's dressing room for the better.

Liverpool also have many players whose quality is almost the same as that of Chelsea, but Klopp is here to improve it and get his players into the best shape. He turned his team into a competitive team even though Klopp has not won as many titles as Manchester City. Pochettino must learn from Klopp and Arteta instead of being a coach who tends to stay silent on the sidelines.

I mean if Bitcoin or other cryptocurrency wasn't volatile like what it is we weren't really going to make a good profit on it, probably those Bitcoin and cryptocurrency millionaires are going to be rich after a few more years like the stock market since most of the time it would take many years before they could gather momentum and skyrocket its market price. I mean we could just compare it to the stock market with just a much faster movement, But we can't really control this kind of thing since it is cryptocurrency nature what we can do is adjust to how we can make a profit on it, probably most of the investors are already doing DCA in order to accumulate cryptocurrency and in the end still make a good amount of profit, bad side probably is there are always going to be losers since you're going to lose money if you didn't sell at the top, there where only a few investors that is going to be lucky to sell at the peak.

Volatility is expected because bitcoin is not a stable coin pegged to the USD. Bitcoin is traded freely without anyone's intervention, but if its price volatility didn't really exist then it's clear the average person would never want to trade it or invest in it. For me, price volatility is mandatory for all crypto assets, even USDT always fluctuates and never has completely stable value.

Moreover, price volatility is not a threat to the future of crypto, especially bitcoin. However, the impact of this volatility must be minimized so that investors and trader do not experience losses over time.

Op you tried for compiling them to us, though they are not new for most of us but at least you are remembering us again. 2FA is very much necessary for the online accounts security. And buying gambling account to gamble is like putting yourself in hot fire and that is should be a suicide mission. The best way is to use your personal account to gamble and it must be in a reputable casinos so that you will not have High Blood Pressure because they are some casinos that are there to scam. Have discipline in your game betting, and don't play in all casinos you see in the internet. Securing your account should be the number one thing to do and anything one can do to secure his or her account, they should do it.

It is mandatory to maintain the security of online accounts from any potential damage, including binding them with 2FA. I don't know for sure if all popular, reputable casinos have such an account security feature, but 2FA shouldn't be the only way to secure your online accounts.

Everyone who has an online account must be aware that they should not carelessly surf on sites with lots of advertisements. Of course, this has a high risk of viruses entering the device if you accidentally click on an ad that has a virus embedded in it. Apart from that, they should also avoid using unofficial APKs, and they should even set messaging platforms like Telegram and Whatapp to not automatically download any files sent to them.

Yes both of them now have 14 points on the standings, Son has appeared impressive by scoring two goals. Arsenal did not perform as expected, the two goals scored by Saka were a lucky break from Romero wrong anticipation. The match statistics show almost equal results, previously I thought Arsenal could be more dominant because they were playing at home.

In another match, Chelsea lost again to Aston Villa, this was completely unexpected. Unai Emery squad managed to take advantage of the moment well, after the Blues played with 10 people. Pochettino is really under pressure, it has been a difficult season for him at Stamford Bridge.

Basically, Arsenal could control the rhythm of the game well from the first half, but their defense was not completely successful in anticipating the attacks built by Tottenham every time they fell behind. David Raya performed very well in goal by making several saves, but in the end he couldn't do much when Son Heung-min scored two goals.

Regarding Chelsea, they are still as bad as last season. Their performance has not improved at all even though Pochettino has actually tried his best. Maybe in the end Pochettino will have to admit that he is just as failed as several previous Chelsea coaches so the public should not have high expectations of the team's achievements this season.

Barcelona was just lucky to come back after being two goals down. Celta parked the bus adopting a 5-3-2 formation which made the game frustrating for Barca. It became worse after they conceived the goal. But the changes in the second half put more pressure on the Celta Vigo but it also opened up the Barca defense for the counterattack of the host. Barca will be grateful that the breakthrough came in the last minutes of the game.

Robert Lewandowski and Jo„o Cancelo gave the club the needed goals that made them grab the maximum three points. Xavi has not been able to assemble a steady squad that can win games without struggling too much. Barca needs to do some work in its defense because they are finding it difficult to withstand counterattacks.  I was disappointed with the result,  I feel that Celta deserves to get at least a point for the hard work they put in this game. Barca will just hope Real Madrid loses or gets a draw against Atlťtico Madrid for them to remain at the top.

And sometimes such luck is completely expected when the non-favorite team is just very focused on defending and counterattacking. If only Celta Vigo played attacking, then I think Barcelona could break down the defense without much problem, but Rafael Benitez wasn't brave enough to do that.

Barcelona's tempo of play improved after they fell behind by two goals through Celta Vigo's counterattack, but I am grateful that in the end Barcelona managed to make a perfect comeback thanks to two goals from Lewandowski and one goal from Cancelo. Celta Vigo also managed to complicate Real Madrid's previous winning plans, but in the end Celta Vigo also lost by Bellingham's 1 goal.
13  Economy / Gambling discussion / Re: La Liga (Spanish League) Prediction Thread 2023/24 on: September 23, 2023, 07:10:33 PM

I don't imagine Barcelona will make a great comeback and win this match. Barcelona did not play very well in the first half. They were trailing 1-0. They had over 75% of ball possession but very little attacking. However, Barcelona conceded another goal in the 76th minute of the second half, falling behind 2-0, but it was unthinkable that Barcelona would win. Lewandowski scored back-to-back goals in the 81st and 85th minutes and Cancelo scored the third goal in the 89th minute to give Barcelona the win. Cancelo played great in this match. I think Barcelona have got a perfect defender.

In fact, Barcelona was the favorite in their home match, but Celta Vigo's really tight defense allowed Barcelona to create many chances in the first half. Barcelona struggled with short passes when penetrating the Celta Vigo defense, but at the same time the composition of players used in the first half was not very good.

I might have gotten a different impression had Xavi played Cancelo, Araujo, Kounde and Balde as starters in defence. Meanwhile Gundogan, Gavi and De Jong played as midfielders. Joao Felix, Lewandowski and Raphinha are likely to be better, but Torres isn't too bad on the right wing either. However, in fact the selection of players in this match was different even though in the end Xavi really made big changes and secured 3 points at home today.
14  Economy / Gambling discussion / Re: La Liga (Spanish League) Prediction Thread 2023/24 on: September 23, 2023, 06:50:30 PM

Barcelona played poorly in the first half and in fact, Barcelona was 0-2 down by Celta Vigo until finally Barcelona managed to make three quick goals in 10 minutes in the 81st to 89th minutes. Also, although Barcelona managed to win in this match but still, 0-2 down playing at home is definitely not a good result for Barcelona. So yes, because Xavi has also signed a new contract until 2025 then of course, Xavi should be able to make Barcelona even better and more consistent in every match ahead of course.

I can almost draw the conclusion that every time Xavi trusts Alonso to start, Barcelona's defensive performance looks weak. I didn't notice this about just one game, but there were many similar cases of this last season. I'm happy because in the end Barcelona managed to make an epic comeback in 10 minutes, but Xavi has to be wise enough in rotating his players if he doesn't want his team's performance to be disrupted.

Barcelona played well in the first half, but not with their defense. Celta Vigo, who had prepared their defense optimally to block all of Barcelona's attacks, managed to lead by 2 goals after 80 matches, but not in the last 10 minutes. Lewandowski scored 2 goals which means he equaled Bellingham's goal record, while Cancelo and Felix each scored 1 goal and 1 assist in today's epic win.

City are still very strong without KDB,after watching their game today against Northingham Forest,I now know where City's weakness is,and that is their holding midfielder,Rodri.City are completely a weak team without Rodri in their squad.After they sent him off for poaching a forest player,City looked absolutely a different team altogether,their possessions changed,they could no longer hold the ball like they did when Rodri was in the team,and I just knew he is their engine room.The person introduced could not do exactly Rodri's work,his absence was very obvious on the pitch.
It is true that they've not really faced a tough side this season,and the only teams that I see that will trouble them is Arsenal, Liverpool and Totthenham.Any other team apart from those four clubs cannot hold them.Arsenal will be facing Totthenham tomorow,and we will see how this encounter will go between the two North London clubs.

Without Kevin De Bruyne Pep Guardiola had to adjust his strategy. Last season Pep Guardiola often used a 3-4-3 formation, while this season he has used a 4-2-3-1 formation. This change in strategy allowed Alvarez to get a place in the main line-up where he was played as an attacking midfielder as well as a second striker. The adoption of this formation has certainly covered the gap in the absence of De Bruyne and Bernardo Silva, but so far Pep Guardiola's tactics have really proven to be good.

Today Manchester City played very well in the first half, but they tended to decline in the second half because Rodri was sent off due to a red card. Manchester City, which only had 10 players left on the pitch, tended to have to defend against Nottingham attacks, but in the end Pep Guardiola's team still maintained its winning streak.

Statistically, in their last 5 matches, of course West Ham have not been able to put much pressure on Liverpool. So far Liverpool have recorded 4 wins in the last 5 matches against West Ham. No matter how strong West Ham is, I think they will find it difficult to steal points at Anfield stadium.

Liverpool don't want their ranking to be shifted by teams below them, Liverpool could even move up to second place if Tottenham and Arsenal draw in their match this week. We should see strong competition in this week's ranking shift. Kloop must be able to bring Liverpool to 3 points this week to continue stick closely to Manchester City.

Liverpool could seal second place in the standings if Arsenal and Tottenham draw, but I seem confident that Arsenal will not make a mistake and they also have a bigger chance of winning. This week Manchester City, Liverpool and Arsenal are more likely to win because of their good performance, but none of us can be sure of anything because the match will be very tough for them.

Manchester City plays at home against Nottingham, Liverpool and Arsenal are also the same. So in my opinion all these home teams have a house advantage which makes their probability of winning higher than their opponents.

This Topic is created to examine the Bitcoin's performance and explores market dynamics as a result of the debt ceiling concern

Something you should think about so far is that bitcoin is still performing quite well despite its volatility. Market dynamics should not have a major impact on your long-term investment plans, unless you expect short-term trading. I agree that the behavior of some investors will be affected by these dynamics, but I don't expect them to be the primary benchmark for determining bitcoin's future.

I have managed to ignore the tempting volatility so far to sell bitcoins, but my accumulation plan for bitcoins is still ongoing as long as I have the budget. So in the end the impact of some external factors did not affect my long term plans.

Jude Bellingham is the best recruitment made by Real Madrid because Bellingham does not need time to adapt to the Real Madrid game. Bellingham is a midfield player but he has become someone who plays a bigger role as a striker in the Real Madrid squad. An advantage for Real Madrid because they have Bellingham who is able to cover their weaknesses without having quality attackers this season. Even Vini absence did not have a bad impact on Real Madrid performance in the Champions League because Real Madrid was able to win their first match.

Jude Bellingham is an attacking midfielder, but he seems to have earned the role of second striker in Ancelotti's game plan this season. Of course he is Real Madrid's best signing this season, but I don't think Real Madrid should always expect him to help them win every game.

It is clear that Bellingham has helped Real Madrid win several crucial matches with his goals, but basically Real Madrid really lost an important figure in their striker which made it difficult for them to find a target man in their game scheme. Joselu hasn't proven much of his quality even though he has scored a few goals so far, but Rodrygo is no better despite both helping Real Madrid to break down the opposition's defense. If Real Madrid continues like this, then I believe they will drop points in tougher matches.

I think West Ham will again get a big test in this week's match, where previously David Moyes men were defeated by Manchester City with a score of 1-3 at home. This week West Ham face Liverpool again, so they are in for quite a tough week to turn their situation around. I think Liverpool is not an unstable team like last season, this season Liverpool is able to maintain its concentration level well enough so as not to lose points in vain.

I think the Liverpool vs West Ham match will be quite interesting this week. In particular, these two teams started this season with quite good records, but West Ham was tarnished by the previous match when they were beaten by Manchester City. So, will West Ham be able to steal points at home to Liverpool, where Liverpool are quite the favorites in this match. Salah and Nunez will be a big threat to West Ham defense in this match.

Liverpool will be playing at home against West Ham, so we should all know that Liverpool will win it considering their good form recently. Liverpool was able to maintain its winning trend in the last 4 matches in the Premier League, but I am also sure they will continue that winning trend in Week 6 against West Ham.

On the other hand, David Moyes' troops actually started this season with an impressive performance. However, in the end they were still unable to perform better against a team like Manchester City which dominated possession of the ball and also built a better attack. West Ham can learn from previous defeats if they want to get points, which means they must improve their defensive system and play more calmly when under pressure.

Arsenal just destroyed PSV in this match and i was thinking that PSV was gonna make a lot of troubles but they got destroyed. I think in Netherlands it will be a different match and that PSV might take some points there. Still Arsenal started the champions league really good

PSV can take some points against Sevilla or Lens, but I'm sure they won't manage to take any points against Arsenal. PSV can take advantage of the home game to play better against their visitors, they should be favored.

The second match in the group stage will take place in early October, Sevilla is the opponent. PSV, playing at home, will certainly take advantage of home advantage to win, but if Sevilla is able to put up a good fight then both teams will have difficulty winning the match. The possibility is may with PSV, but no one knows for sure what will happen.
