Maybe you just look down on those who attempt to engage in self-improvement BTC trading practices?

I think that's an astute observation. I don't have the gumption to trade. Full-stop.

And this is why I suck at this.

This remains exact within expectations of what could happen.

Remember 3 weeks ago, we were down at $5,777-ish?  O.k.?  

On the overall scheme of things, we would have been buying BTC all the way down to $5,777 - or whatever closest proximate buy order was filled.. perhaps $6k might have been the closest, depending on how far apart your buy orders are placed.

Then when the BTC price went up, largely, from that point until nearly $8,500, then you would have been selling all the way up.  Let's say for example, you did not hit the bottom, and you were only able to buy around $6,000, then you might have been selling from $6,500 up or maybe your orders are spread wider (because you don't like to be so active in your trades) and your sell orders would have begun to execute around $7k all the way up to $8,500..

Again, on the way up, let's say that your sell orders are  spread kind of wide, and the closest one to hit was around $8k, and therefore, you might not be ready to buy back until $7k or something like that?  Anyhow, if your orders are closer together, then more of them will trigger, but a $2,700 price swing (nearly a 50% swing in price) should have caused some orders to trigger - unless you are playing really large swings (and some folks do play the really large swings).

Currently, I have larger gaps between my buy and sell orders, but once the orders start to trigger, then subsequent orders are relatively close together.

Ok Jay. I'm going to start improving my Bitcorn position. No guts no glory. Wish me luck.

Edit: Let me know if you want your own action figure.

By precluding approval of cryptocurrency-based ETPs for the foreseeable future, the Commission is engaging in merit regulation. Bitcoin is a new phenomenon, and its long-term viability is uncertain. It may succeed; it may fail. The Commission, however, is not well positioned to assess the likelihood of either outcome, for bitcoin or any other asset. Many investors have expressed an interest in gaining exposure to bitcoin, and a subset of these investors would prefer to gain exposure without owning bitcoin directly. An ETP based on bitcoin would offer investors indirect exposure to bitcoin through a product that trades on a regulated securities market and in a manner that eliminates some of the frictions and worries of buying and holding bitcoin directly. If we were to approve the ETP at issue here, investors could choose whether to buy it or avoid it. The Commission’s action today deprives investors of this choice. I reject the role of gatekeeper of innovation—a role very different from (and, indeed, inconsistent with) our mission of protecting investors, fostering capital formation, and facilitating fair, orderly, and efficient markets. Accordingly, I dissent.

I didn't quite agree with this chart so I made some changes.



I start off with the assumption that fiat will be considered as cash or checkbook money depending upon which of those two puts it in a more favorable light for a given question but knock off a point for fungibility because of the need to switch back and forth between cash and check book money in order to achieve this.

  • first change to fiat fungibility mentioned above
  • the original author put the cart before the horse on non consumability of gold, the main reason why gold is not consumed is BECAUSE of it's monetary status. If it became demonetized than it would become a consumable resource.
  • checkbook money is very durable
  • checkbook money is very divisable
  • both cash and checkbook money are extremely difficult to counterfeit convincingly
  • and of course the one thing that gold has that makes it even a contender in this race at all is it's 5000 year history of value. no matter how much you love crypto and hate gold you would be a fool to pretend that this isn't relevant

Bbut... but Anon, it's like when you want a car engine to 'scale' to higher horsepower and speed, the most straightforward way is to simply add more cylinders!  V32 engines for everyone so we can get places faster, amiright?  /s

Stupid analogy is stupid.

If you want a transportation analogy, a closer analog would be passenger demand for a certain train route exceeding capacity solved by adding more passenger cars to the train.

Still a stupid analogy, but an order of magnitude closer to the situation at hand.
Dude you are eating my merits! Put those pic'a'nic baskets down!

For the record, I maintain that segwit was a mistake. And that bcash is shit. And no, these are not contradictory, Torque. Feel less and think more.

O.k. great, so you cannot find another coin?  Instead you want to come here and bash on segwit which was accepted through consensus and NOT likely to be diminished anytime soon, except you nutjobs just want some pie in the sky speculative things to complain about?
Get the fuck out of here with your wordy words wordy man.

Well that... that is the fucking issue right there, isn't it. Just buy the fucking coins directly, investors! Sheesh, what is the problem? Coinbase and Gemini are offering custodial services for this very reason.

Just buy the goddamn coins and be done with it.

Oh... but you say you can't run derivatives against it and leverage up to the moon? You can't loan your shares out as collateral for other investments? Well too fkn bad. Buy the coins!

From towards the end of Peirce's dissent.  Evidently she understands the corn fairly well for your average bureaucrat. Emphasis mine.

Quote
By withholding approval of a bitcoin-based ETP because the underlying market insufficiently resembles the markets for other commodities, we set ourselves up as the gatekeepers of innovation. Securities regulators are ill-equipped to fill this particular role.[22] It is telling that the disapproval order’s analysis shows little consideration of the relatively advanced features of this still nascent market. For example, trading in bitcoin is electronic, which facilitates competition and price transparency.[23] Bitcoin are interchangeable, so that a purchaser is sure to get exactly the same thing no matter where she purchases it.[24] In addition, bitcoin mining is not geographically limited (except to the extent it migrates to places with cheap electricity), so it is not subject to geopolitical threats that plague other commodity markets.[25] Rather than considering the unique opportunity that these innovative characteristics of the bitcoin market present to investors, the order analyzes the ETPs through a legal and regulatory framework derived from prior approval orders for commodities with very different characteristics.

More like her please.

I just think it’s kinda cute how most of the Republican administration seems to be in bed with Russia.   Quite literally.  

It’s also fun to point out how many right wingers are traitors, prepared to sell democracy down the river for a few bucks.

I just can't understand how someone like you found your way to somewhere like this.



You do realize that this is a movement to force free markets onto the world whether they like them or not? It's like the most opposite thing ever to agitating for societies to be dominated by the state.
