It's been over a month now.  Do any of you out there feel the situation with regards to buy and hold has changed at all. Have the risks increased or decreased.

I predict bitcoin price will raise to $250 in the end of the year. Like last year, bitcoin price increased in the end of 2014, and went down again in early year. From now, just look for the lowest bitcoin price for this season, maybe in two weeks from now or October. Goodluck at your investment Cheesy. In my opinion now is right time to buy bitcoin and hold it in your wallet Grin

Timing is very important.If enter the market at the right time and invest with the trend then you win.Please note that none of the investors and speculators can not win in a row, and it is also possible that you may miss some very appealing oppurtunities.

If you think longterm (up to 5 years), yes it's a good investment. Bitcoin only waits for a boost.

No matter what we can say here I do think that another BTC bubble (because it will be a panic buy bubble) will come.
And when that will come we have to be ready if we want to get some chips.

I still go for the long term but I would like to monetize some cash from some cheap buying.

At least this is as I see it.

Agreed, but still, bitcoin isn't exactly a safe investment. Buy and hold is definitely a good investment strategy, but be prepared to hold for a very long time.

A month is nothing. If people are looking to make a quick profit off bitcoin then that ship sailed long ago and you're waisting your time. The only way you're going to profit now is from the long game. Buy coins and hold for years not months. If bitcoin is going to go mainstream it isn't going to do it over night and I suspect for any decent gains we'll be waiting 2-5 years maybe more.

For 5 years of holding time, it's a no brainer that it will be a worthy investment, since it definetly will bring you more % profit than straight on holding it on a bank.
There's too much money to be made for people to allow bitcoin to go away.

I think this buy and hold at $230 deal is looking even better now. $220 Is solid support:

$220 And $300 have been important levels throughout 2015:


However, use your own discretion to guide your trading and investment decisions.
Best of luck.

that's right. never go all in. i always do 50% investing and 50% holding fiat for when the price is crashing. buying now and holding for the long term is the best option.

To answer the OP: I think the answer is - generally speaking - yes. If Bitcoin succeeds, price should be higher than 230 $, even if adoption grows only slowly.

But you have to watch the news. If there really is a fork (XT etc.) in sight, maybe there will be much lower values possible. Uncertainty is the most bearish indicator in these times.

I'm new to Bitcoin but I'm not new to investment. I think the current price will remain steady ($200-300) unless there is a new major development really, and nobody can foresee what it's coming.

I think the current economic system must fall or stumble for Bitcoin to gain some actual power or real application, if not it will remain like the novelty it is, it really holds no value. However, considering that it can actually be worth millions, I couldn't pass the chance to buy a small amount at a decent price. But I don't think investing a good part of your savings would be wise at all...

Welcome to the game. Sounds like you've got the right perspective going into it. Zero or hero. My impression is we're not going anywhere (but possibly lower) until we have some clarity on future network transaction capacity.

everyone is waiting on the sidelines to see if a consensus will be reached regarding block size. Once bitcoin is back on a "stable" path there will be panic buying since the current price is undervalued.

Just looking for some opinions.  I know I can make 0.5% on my cash in the bank so I'm thinking to put a small percentage into buy and hold of bitcoins. 

What do people think of this as an investment holding for 6 months, 1 year or 5 years?

this is a good idea, I am doing a similar investment myself. I put aside a portion of my money every now and then, a portion that I feel comfortable investing in bitcoin, and then buy bitcoin when price is low and put it in my cold storage for the future price rise.

Hold for 2 years an you'll be 20x on investment.  Why doubt bitcoin now? nothing has changed.  The price right now seems like a very clear bottom we just dont have any new blood for a rally.

yes. i think what you are explaining here is a very good idea.
as you already know it is always good not to put all your eggs in one basket, so keep in mind to just invest a part of your money in bitcoin and always keep an eye on the price.

He is a positive guy it seems. That's ok and his personal is opinion is that in 2 years the price of Bitcoin could be something around $4600. Yes it's a very bullish prediction, maybe naive, and he could be wrong. But he believes in Bitcoin and that is all what counts.
