Winklevoss ETF the 10th of January right?

No still making the way through approval process. Good news is that final deadlines are coming up so it should either be trading quarter two 2017 or DOA.

Anyone remember which bitcoin price chart had that neat flashing "ATH" symbol when ATH was reached. I wanna make sure i get that experience again. Smiley
Either bitcoinwisdom or bitcoinity ...

bitcoinity. if you check any exchange that opened in 2014 or later, there is a good chance you will see the flashing sign today.

for absolute ATH, you'll have to keep your eye on stamp.

So I'm confused now. What's the story with the ETF? I've read waiting for approval but you guys are saying it's launched soon.

What's the deal here?

Also what is the next big thing to happen?

- ATH

- ETF

- ?

If i remember correctly, the SEC wants to see a higher liquidity before it gets approved. I dont know if they find Bitcoin ''mature'' enough this time but at some point in the future it will be.

Why do we always have to get media attention on massive China-driven rallies then end up retracing 20-30% to the downside? Totally insane how bitcoin continues to get dragged through the mud in the aftermath of these events.

Hey, I don't mind media attention as long as the whole drug laden hippies thing is not reinforced too much.

They should include comments from this forum in these articles. Like:

what a rough choice is to buy or not buy at this price.

I look at it this way. In 2013 the price shot up from about $125 to about $1200. Having been in bitcoin since 2010 I knew when it went up to $200 that the price was too high for that time. But when the price finally returned to normal almost 2 years later the price was around $300 which was the right price for that time.

Even though buying at $200 was buying overvalued coins...in the long run they were cheap coins.

$1,000 will be cheap coins in a few years no matter what the price does in the short term.

$1200 happened because Mt.Gox was hacked.. there was trading bot later discovered that kept buying BTC at whatever price, boosting price to impossible range. So hacker has stolen BTC and side-effect was very inflated price.

it was a factor but gox was nowhere compared to china at the height of the bubble. it was already clearly a failing shithole long before it actually died. real people paid real money at those prices.

If you assume price = constant + superimposed sinusoidal curve, with the amplitude of the curve big enough to trigger buying and selling, then by your method, you repeatedly buy low, sell high, over and over again. Which means you make money, assuming the spread and transaction costs are less than what you earn from buying low and selling high.

Any curve can be represented as a sum of sinusoidal curves, i.e. a Fourier series. Therefore, it becomes mathematically provable that your method, if properly implemented, will cause you to benefit from volatility.

EDIT:
Actually I might also have to assume that you start and end at the same price. Obviously if the price of bitcoin shoots up to $1M, you're better off if you didn't sell any of it at all during the rise, which means Strategy 1 would be better.

 All trading strategies have a threshold where they stop being profitable. The rebuy approach works best when ranging. It works worst when on a uptrend with no corrections.
 Even if there is retracing, that retracing must match your thresholds. In the worst-case event the corrections can fall just short of your rebuy levels.

 I built a spreadsheet to play around with formalizing these parameters a few years back.
EDIT - Old version:
https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1jv97ERhahE7pP5xAVIXtHEE89Ew4CHiz7imtwsYw8zg/edit#gid=4 (Make a private copy before entering your own values.)

New version:
https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1JDYALoV4KR_pvX5vuQww99t4hwqqmuHuAI9CZWhFgt0/edit#gid=0

In the end you are given a list of several points based on math. The variables you control:

 Net worth outside of bit coin, net worth in bitcoin, desired percentage of assets to hold in bit coin,  granularity of sell targets,  percent of funds to use for repurchases, percent correction rebuy target.

 As an example:  John Doe holds 10 bit coins, as a value of $5000 outside of bit coin, wishes to have 66% of his value in bit coin. Sells occur each 20% increase.  Revise occur when each cell target has dropped in value by half.

 This plan would start out balanced as $10,000 in bitcoin value, 5000 outside, matches the 66% balance. As bitch queen goes up you will be forced to sell more to stay to that balance level. Let's say we jump up to $10,000. At that point you would sell your $10,000 target. Now  in the future, that specific cell will only ever be repurchased if you hit $5000 or lower.

This is the key to the rebuy principle. You don't know how deep the corrections will go.
 If it ever only corrected to 6000, you would never revise anything. If it would have corrected to 2500, you could have three but twice as many. You can't to know in advance. So you have to guess on depth.

 Now, the depth of corrections varies in a rally based on how overextended it is.
So I played around with a "heat index " that let the amount that you sold at price targets increase as you deviate farther from moving averages. This lets you sell more when you believe you are overextended, but again there are no guarantees.

 It's a little cryptic to use with no explanation, and it did not have a ton of interest back in the day. I can find a link to the thread that describes it if anyone is interested now.

 Regardless, it is an important topic, and one that is good to have a good plan for, before prices go crazy and emotions can take over. Also crucial is the tax considerations of your buys and sells, long versus short term capital gains, but I am neither a lawyer nor an accountant so that stuff and all formal recommendations are each individual's responsibility.

Not to be cryptic, but that depends on the height of the rally.
The greater the drift from the long term moving averages, the more overbought we are, and the greater potential for depth-of-correction.

If you look at the 2013 rally, we had a highest price over $1000, and a lowest price nearly a year later on one exchange of $100 (and $166 across all).
So even conservatively, we had a $1000 --> $166 = 6x depreciation of the highest prices.

But remember, in a phased sell, you sold coins at 500, 600, 720, etc along the way. So let's say you had your rebuy set at 50% for the 2013 rally.
Any sells you made at 166*2 = $332 would get rebought.
The sells you made below $332 would never be repurchased.

So following the sheet patiently over the 3 year correction would have allowed for a very large profit.
If we instead had stayed flatter, or the bottom held at $500, then the ability for rebuy would have been too 'greedy' in this case, and would have done better with a rebuy at 75% of original value.
Conversely, if we had corrected down to $10 instead of $100, then a rebuy of 25% of original value would have been greater.

There's no way to know the future, so I set those variables based on game theory principles - at what values will I be okay, agnostic of the path Bitcoin takes?

There was a case study of mis-gauging this burning an individual from our most recent rally. IIRC, masterluc got burned during the rally to $500 in 2015. In short, it got 'overextended' too much so he sold ABOVE the planned amount. As soon as you do that, your choices go away. If price keeps going up, you cannot benefit. So we had already been a few standard deviations above expected maximum price...and kept going.

For me, that's the biggest benefit to the spreadsheet. I can be greedy by deferring some sales to later price points, but I never sell more than the limits set BY those price points.

...my best speculation is that in the long term, this rally peaks at $8,888, and corrects back to between $500 and $1000.

A late good morning Bitcoinland.

I see we had a nice little correction last night but not all the way back to triple digits, then bounced back up to a new yearly high before settling down to where we are now... $1029USD at Bitcoinaverage.

You gotta love the corrections happening as we go along instead of letting them pile up and bringing a crashing end to the rally.

I love the daily CAD ATHs... $1393 today before dipping back to the current $1382.

Go Bitcoin go.
