I haven't been active here much, but I'm still alive. I will try to at least delete the worst shitposting. Reporting particular posts to me via PM is helpful.

We had a long holiday weekend here in the states, and then my wife delivered our first baby right after. Shit's been crazy - attending to work, baby, wife, and sleeping when I get "free time".

Congratulations infofront!  Don't feel the need to justify any absence in the circumstances, it's totally understandable.

Best wishes to the three of you.

I am trying to understand what you just said. If I understand it correctly, instead of closing your current short what you did is buy an equal amount of BTC so that you are hedged if the price continues to go up but, ok. But, if instead it goes down, your short is in profit but you lose an equal value on your recently bought physical. So basically you are paying lending fees for nothing?

Does it have anything to do with taxes? I really can't understand why you would do that instead of just closing the short... or I am missing something here.

I believe that the price will go down in the short term and up in the long term.  So I believe that I can turn a short term profit on my short and a long term profit on the physical.  I also believe that profit will exceed any lending fees.  But if I am totally wrong, my position is neutral (other than lending fees) until I decide to close the short.  Lending fees are sufficiently low over the relevant time span that they can be disregarded.  

On the other hand, if I close my short all I do is crystalise the loss.
The two legs to keep balance.

Maybe I should be buying options instead to hedge the short but I haven't gotten my head around how to properly price that scenario. 
I haven't thought about options yet, either. Options where? Binance?

oh man, I don't expect to see much of you, my kiddo is about two. I remember when he got got home, it was panic constantly and then the fun of staying up through the nothing with him, watching his chest to make sure he was breathing, making sure he didn't puke and not rollover and drown in it. You know fun stuff.

Don't worry it's all worth it, were growing the second one right now.

$4327

There's nothing like the smell of rekt shorts in the morning. Smiley

Sorry Hairy....


As mentioned earlier I am now fully hedged (actually 2x hedged but disregard that) and net long.

I fucking love rekt shorts.    

Also I’m not rekt until $7.5k so bring it mothefuckrrs.

Disclaimer:  I may have been drinking so my spelling may be off.

Edit:  I may need to host a Hairy is rekt party if we hit $7,5k before we hit $3,9k.

If $3474 WAS the bottom, then that one is perfectly fine Smiley

If we have a lower one before 2018 ends... then yes, it will be a big fat ugly ass.

Damn, I was the baby of the WO thread for a good long while and now I've been usurped. Pushed aside like discarded rotting fruit by some nameless fictional character invented by our increasingly lazy and ineffectual moderator.
Shall now proceed to have temper tantrums for 2 years solid.



Akshooly fuck all that, hearty congrats infofront on the new baby

Agreed, options are hairy beasts at least for me. I need to study before even considering getting my big toes wet. Thanks for sharing the info! You seem to be informed about just anything.
