Well...I will likely DIE with my BTC hoard intact...but if BTC hits $6k, I am annoucing here now I will panic sell like an 8 year old child...all my

non-hoard btc/ltc and probably a good chunk of my LISK ICO coins.....

I retired 1/14/18 (yep ..that bit of karma broke the crypto universe) so goal is NOT to touch soc sec or traditional investment and/or cover

health insurance next 3 years till I'm 66 years old. (my brother is broker of traditional investments)

thus my exit strategy and the FUD to follow on NOT selling at the high on Alts and my BTC hoard....my reply, HOPEFULLY, will be in 3 years if it all goes to sh*t...

'crypto allowed me to retire 3 years early...bite me'


as an end game it lacks a bit of class...but if the BTC hoard is intact.....well ..ugly but do'able.....will just have to 'suck it up'

the pucker factor is getting intense...at least for my ALT hoard....(don't ask about scrypt-pow mining I will start to cry...)

fun,fun

 Cool

It's tickling with 45.5% now.

BTW, I'm not a very much chart specialist but doesn't this look like a double-bottom? No one seems to be talking about it. Huh



Because it isn't one.  Yet.

Who thinks that the situation can be summarized with a message like "Papas & mamas, dumb newcomers, please sell everything off before 5k! Doom! Doom! Cool"?

Well, yes : and reasons : 

Price/      Time/    Volume/

Targets are mutually combined and partly exclusive.  This is advanced trading logic.

By example in this case:

IF  volume gets high enough, it will absolve price from getting low enough.

IF time elapsed (at say, low price level) is sufficient, it makes up for lower volume... in this case we are talking many months at the lows.

IF  price gets low enough, it can mark the bottom (ie spike low).

So therefore , price target cannot be set in stone where volume and time can vary so much.  Of course nobody can make precise predictions, but you will find that highs and lows over many markets long term have these peculiar properties of P/T/V .

Aha! Great insight! In other words, what counts is mainly the sum of volume * price... right?
I'd never seen it from this angle, but it makes a lot of sense.

One thing I like about this place is that there's always something to take away. At least for me.

Yes, you are a logical thinker.

Most people seem to think that there are pre determined price levels, whereas of course that is not true. You can always make estimates with if/but caveats, and I attempt to do that. My validation is in my successful trade over decades. I have made all my income and assets myself, entirely from trading.

You are right in that this is a great thread, with only a minimal amount of trolls and ad hominem attackers.

Last summer majormax said there would be no new ATH for another few years. Bitcoin hit a $20k ATH half a year later.
(relevant quote snipped)

Today he's making the same prediction of a few years of bear market without another ATH. His trade analysis of Bitcoin is full of shit.
(more doom and gloom stuff)

Great of you to out bunk predictions!
To use the words of our resident gay star,

Also, I've come to recognize everyone doing trade analysis of Bitcoin is full of shit.

which may well be the case. Predicting the future is an art for artists, visionaries, madmen. Over half of which are proved wrong anyway.

However, this doesn't detract from that specific observation: P/ T/ V/. I think it really makes a lot of sense, and it's a valuable tool to analyze any situation - not just the current one - and not necessarily to obtain accurate long term predictions. A few weeks would be more than enough in most crypto circumstances.

 Cool


wow, this is escalating quickly. what is going on in the altworld? eth collapse?  Grin

Bingo.   Also all the trash.  Well all but Btrash.  I need to see it die in a fire.  A few quality projects are faring better.  If you sort the drop from low to high you will see a list made up at least 70% by projects will real utility or proven value and/or stability Monero, Decred, ZCash, Namecoin, Lightcoin.  And along with those last two another venerable oldies: peercoin and primecoin! Wink

ETC is actually green.  And I am not sure what that means...  because I think the ETH implosion is partly because we really don't NEED that technology.  Lightning will likely supplant it eventually.

Until lightning is mature.  I believe coins with true utility and/or testbed functionality will remain viable.

Speaking of capitulation, I'm CONSIDERING starting to contemplate selling a batch - if I can - between $7.5-$8k before end of March just to get the tax monkey off my back. Sent an email to my accountant asking what the penalty is on $xM deferred from Q1 to Q2.

Seriously.

Sheeeit.

No proud to admit this.

Also, I've come to recognize everyone doing trade analysis of Bitcoin is full of shit.
EVERYONE.

I'm thinking the same.

We can all hope/say it will moon in the future but short to mid term trading is as unpredictable as anything.

I don't see the point of drawing a line between tops and bottoms AT A CERTAIN POINT and then extrapolating onwards. Those lines are constantly changing from what I've seen over the last 1 1/2 years.

Or a curve, for that matter. Even without shifting points, too many curves can fit a fixed set. An uncountable infinity, actually.

I guess it's just a tool to help figure out the short term.

retired....the alts and mining were to get me to 66 years then take traditonal investements and soc sec as a goal (i can retire now on that but stubborn)

thus, my end strategy...if i have to flush all the alts...and btc hoard is intact to do above my reply, not selling alts and btc at the high will be

'crypto allowed me to retire ...3 years early..bite me!'




but if BTC hits $6k, I am annoucing here now I will panic sell like an 8 year old child...


...and then it'll jump off from $5.9k. Grin
Back to 10K and will be Crying like 7 Years old  Grin Grin Grin


again..will flush the alts and all non-hoard btc at 6k or around to protect my retirement plan of not taking anything till 66 years

will be ugly...but will HODL the BTC


but .....how does it go

needs must, when the devil drives...

https://en.oxforddictionaries.com/definition/needs_must_when_the_devil_drives

the BTC hoard MUST be protected at all costs...even if I am the only one with BTC 25 years from now in the Nursing Home..my precious

that does not mean I won't flush the alt coin hoard at BTC hitting 6k let me tell ya! to accomplish above 3 year plan

ugly, ugly...and don't ask me about scrypt-pow mining ...I will just cry....

again, sorry, retired 1/14/18....and karma could not handle me not working....I skunked the works

so how it sits now....with the above 'dubious retirement plans'

See how similar does it look? It is all over GoX again. Bloodbath to $2k incoming. They won't let it shoot up again unless dumb people do panic sells below $5k.

I checked that page, but I don't get the point. It seems to have been written in 2017 and updated.

Here’s my prediction:  the bottom will be in when we hit 75%+ dominance.   Only then we will have flushed the scams, imitators and charlatans.

Quote
LONDON, March 18 (Reuters) - The Financial Stability Board (FSB), which coordinates financial regulation for the G20 countries, on Sunday rejected calls by several countries for cryptocurrency regulation, such as bitcoin .

The FSB, however, stressed the need for greater international coordination in monitoring these rapidly evolving technologies, which still represent a tiny sector equivalent to less than 1% of global gross domestic product.

"The first assessment of the FSB is that currently, these crypto-assets do not pose a risk to global financial stability," said Mark Carney, president of the FSB, in a letter to finance ministers and governors of central banks, which will meet in Buenos Aires on Monday and Tuesday.

Mark Carney, who will leave his post next year, when he resigns as Governor of the Bank of England, noted that his successor would oversee a regulator more inclined to review existing rules than to set up new ones.

In his letter, he also said that the FSB, which has conducted a series of banking and financial reforms after the 2007-2009 crisis, will focus on the current rules rather than design new ones.

"As the work of the FSB, which aims to fill the fault lines that caused the financial crisis, is nearing its end, the latter will focus more (..) on the implementation and rigorous evaluation of the effects. reforms approved by the G20, "said Mark Carney.
