Overall does not mean anything when you lose 50% of potential profit overnight :c

Looks like mostly profits here... so why such a negative atmosphere?

Made more money than I invested and now I have bitcoins and litecoins to play with.
The forum was the biggest help for me.

Tips are welcome at this address 18DVZkpSwmejPjekX3QMKvRRtR8Bfx65LN.

must be all smart money here.  It seems like everyone on the forums here sold at 200+ and bought back in the double digits.  Any tips on how to spot opportunities like this for someone who just sat on the sidelines holding?

Made $1500 exactly.

From a $1900 investment.

In 8 days.

I'm pretty satisfied with my actions, i made the right decisions with the information that i had - can't do much more than that.

Of course if i could predict the future i could have made $3000 profit, but that was never going to happen.

My real fuck up was waiting for 2 weeks for mt.gox verification (that got rejected anyway) to buy coins. If i would have just bought using localbitcoins to start with than i would have made over $6000 profit.

If I bought back the same amount of bitcoins that I've ever sold just now, my total ROI in fiat would be about 1000%.

I haven't lost anything as long as I still hold, right?

I would still say you have, if you need the money tomorrow you cant get it because it doesn't exist.

Depends on how you look at it. If you spent more than your BTC holdings are currently worth, you have lost the opportunity to do something else with the difference.

*disclaimer* I am a miner, though I do speculate (poorly) with the leftovers

anyways, I lost a ton of "potential" profit by selling at 20, 40, 100, 150, etc... all the way up to 200 at which point I was tapped out (I have a small hoard of coins that I am not putting up on the exchange, just in case)

I can't call the tops, or the bottoms, and I've quit trying.

I just sell enough to pay the rent, and if I have extra, I'll just hold on. When the price goes ballistic I might sell a little more and consider buying more mining equipment, but asics are kinda ruining it for me. (I don't like that I can't just go to the store and pick up some hardware, maybe someday)

lately I've tried to just keep half and sell half, but during the run up I couldn't hold back and sold nearly 3/4 of all my coins...

I cashed out and bought silver, and I kind of regret it, because I had no money left in the account to buy back in when it dropped, but I don't worry too much 'cuz I'm still hoarding some, and I still can make a few per week...

but still, moving forward I think I will try to keep at least some kind of minimum amount of both BTC and fiat in my account so I can take advantage of moves that go way beyond my expectations.

It's funny, it's all about perspective.

I invested 10k, when bitcoin was at 65 at that 10k was 50k, I was ecstatic. It was an amazing return and a good amount of money.

When that turned to 200k, I was even happier.

But now two days later, when it 75k (at 100), I somehow feels like a lost a ton.

So I'm up, quite a bit, but I feel way down.

Not having money in hand is just another way of being long in Bitcoins!

I would have made money...

Then, gox STOLE 8 of my coins as I was exchanging them to fiat...

Get your coins out of gox people.

Well done to those being honest here.

As I have my original investment in cash on Gox and Bitcoins I'm up by precisely x Bitcoins.

I suspect not everyone who should select option B would be either: alive, logged in or bothered enough to actually answer though!

23% daily growth was a MASSIVE hint! Wink

We were chugging along nicely at about 5-6% which was sustainable.

Get aboard for the next one Smiley
