agree with all of the above except the comment of "hot air".
The forecast service builds on in depth analysis and continuously outperforms buy and hold.

But this is not to advertise the forecasting service, it's about seriously protecting wealth in the next years.
Those who don't see the risk and those who dont want any forecast, do not need to follow or read this thread.


Unfortunately I am not rich...
We are talking a couple of thousands here


Believe me, if you invested at date you registered (2010-09-18) $100 USD and bought 1,600 BTC @ $0.06 then BUY AND HOLD you have more than a couple of thousands here

My sentiments precisley. Something doesn't quite add up and I have filed it in the "Too Good To Be True" folder but maybe I am being cynical :-)

exactly.  given how long S3052 has been around since $0.06, he should be rich given his claims of trading outperformance and having picked the 1200 top with a 100% BTC portfolio.  he says he's outperformed buy and hold.  those of us who have used buy and hold since that time are up many thousands of %  and are indeed rich even despite the pullback.  yet he claims he's outperformed buy and hold through day trading, so he should be even richer than rich.

doesn't add up at all.  it never has. just look at the title of his sub thread.

nice gap down.  i'm sure they'll have this corrected by morning:



actually, most Bitcoiners are spoiled by 24/7 markets. 

just look at how unfair this Dow futures market is for the average investor.  the Dow runs up fast at the end of the normal trading day on Friday going into 4PM EST.  now, Sunday evening, they gap the futures market down -60 as of now.  it could get much worse by tomorrow morning but all the while, average investors that don't trade futures, are trapped to deal with tomorrow morning's opening tick.  i see this crap all the time, especially with after hours earnings reports which gap up or down up to 20%.  it's unfair for most investors.

Also, BTC has proven itself to be useful for the black markets. This will never change no matter what the general population thinks of it. If the drug dealers accept it then it must have value. Try debating this and you will make a fool out of yourself because essentially you would be trying to portray drug dealers as fools.

I've read this twice now and I keep laughing because it's so true.

1. The percentage of fools in the drug trade is no higher or lower than any other business.
2. SR is history.
3. As are anonymous exchanges without KYC.
4. US [state level] LEO already popped a few localbitcoin users, with tactics bordering on entrapment.  If the locals are watching, I'd guess the feds are too.
5. The bulk of street/house-level trade is done in fiat, converting to BTC is pointless risk.

TL;DR:  nah.

you know that there are SR2 and countless local anonymous TOR forums that basically has shifted alot of drug trade, even high-volume street level, to BTC? so basically: yeah.

also, openbazaar, while they try to distinct themselves from drug trade, would of course allow this and anything else to be p2p traded and it will blow right past anything that SR has ever reached in terms of volume in no time.

Amir's objective was to make decentralized SR when he made the concept for the DarkMarket...currently know as OpenBazaar.

how's it coming?  there was a post on Reddit which claimed the project was dying b/c no commits had been made in like 15 days or so.  i thought to myself, "15 days?  what's so bad about that?"

Thank you to the whale (short coverer?) who simply smashed that 3000 btc wall down the other night. Also thanks to the little bulls who helped take out all the little sellers who were panic front running the blocking wall.

cypherdoc, I have tried to run bitcoin-qt on
 http://www.amazon.com/ADATA-Premier-128GB-Memory-ASDX128GUI1CL10-R/dp/B00DVXTOBO  :-)

- it took 26 mins to copy blockchain
- 6 mins to verify blocks (3-6x longer than when using SSD)


so you copied the blockchain from one of your existing pc's?

how long would it take to download blockchain from network?

Here's another great hint as to what has been happening.

In this podcast,  Lazlo Birinyi  describes his Money Flow Model where he measures the degree to which the ask side is hit in Time & Sales. I find this podcast timely as I have been noticing just this strategy being executed in tandem with these big blocking walls.

If you watch carefully, just about all the big trades involving 25-100 BTC or so are green; meaning they're being hit on the ask side of the spread. This means there is  more interested significant  buying going on than selling.  Someone is using these walls to keep price suppressed, get small panic sellers to jump in front, all the while they're buying in big chunks.

http://www.bloomberg.com/podcasts/masters-in-business/

Did he get enough before losing over 3000 btc in a single buy?  Seems like he's going to have to accumulate all over again  Cheesy

The other interesting point Birinyi made was that he doesn't think the stock market prices in anything beyond 3-6 months. With all this crap coming from the bears about the reward halving already being priced in 2 years in advance, as opposed to my own observations about what happened in 2012, I thought this was interesting.

Yea I agree.  Traders are most definitely more concerned with if bitcoin will even be around two years from now.  Factoring in a block reward halving two years from now seems asinine.

it's just a ploy on their part to try and convince all the weak hands that we will never see new highs and that Bitcoin is finished.  don't be fooled.

still just a series of higher lows.  plus, we know how to deal with the blocking walls:

There's also an excellent chance that if the little bulls can take out the little asks up to the edge of the large wall, the blocker may just pull the wall out of fear. Remember, these are blocking walls, not true sellers,imo.
