...I just extended the concept so I have 2 parallel ladders, one going up (long) and one going down (short)...

It's a very interesting strategy. Just to be sure you have two parallel ladders, but only one open at a time?

...I often cut both ladders when I'm in the green and I feel the exposition is making me sweat too much...

Exactly, I would rather cash out and wait patiently for another best entry point, when BTC is crashing, especially when there are a lot of signs, before each deep.
These crashes are not so uncommon as in 2017. One didn't know what to expect. This is such a different filling to watch the price going down with margin position open  Wink.

Hodling in such a moment could be a pain and always was for me, so this year I try a different approach and sell, just like you, to not sweat too much when there is 30% pullback.
I just don't see any sense to HODL (my full position), especially if I am watching the price very closely, each day from years and see the crash coming.
In 2017 I would HODL and this year I sell 70% on the top and open a margin position.

Don't get me started on children.
The price of Bitcoin went up quite a bit then down a bit.
We’ve been mini barting for about 4-5 hours now. I saw it at $11,735 earlier. Pretty sure I saw $11,1xx this morning too.

Looks like the price will soon close the trend triangle. There will be only two scenarios, we will break up or down.
I still hope it will be up, but if bulls will be not strong enough in 4 to 8 hours all indicators, turn again bearish and indeed there can be a flash crash, again.
We need more volume (above 30 billion for faster, stronger moves) or more buyers. The 4hours chart and daily, still looks good and strong. Let's hope the pump will come.

ladder style

I won't be able to mention ladders (in the JJG/Jbreher sense) without secretly or openly laughing at the memory of Globb0's words - brainwashed ladder drone. Which reminds me, I really owe an sMerit there, and now I have one, so I'll comply.

I don't recall the significance of such a comment.  Maybe I missed it?

Here it is. Oops, I'm laughing again.

By the way, I checked in with my mom in regards to some of her BTC details a few days ago, and I was surprised in a few regards.

She is actually one of the few peeps who actually did something that is in the neighborhood of what I suggested, and that was to at least put some money into BTC and to dollar cost average and to only sell small amounts on the way up in order to be prepared for further possible UP.

So, she largely has been following my suggestions, but her revelations to me a few days ago, showed me that peeps are going to do what they are going to do, and peeps got their own minds and they are going to experiment to some degree.  

-snip-


You brainwashed your mum!

Fuck. She will be rich but she can never enjoy it now she is a ladder drone.   Cheesy
Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy

Ok... I guess I did see that one, and it seems that I was not as struck by it's humor, as you.  Go figure.

For a bit of a factual clarification (and I hope that I don't ruin any significance of the joke for you), in essence, even though I got my mom to invest into BTC, and she takes some of my suggestions, she really has been employing variations of my methodology that gravitates a whole hell of a lot more towards HODLing.. and playing around with a few shit coins, here and there, in order to "entertain" herself.

So, I really don't consider her to be following my lead very much beyond the initial choice to get into bitcoin and then to hold through a few of the downward bad periods.... which may have even caused her to be way more profitable in terms of percentage that she profited from what she had put in.

In the end, whatever she is doing is working for her, and from time to time, she does ask me some questions and seems to account for what I am suggesting to be good strategies....

Oh, with regard to laddering specifically in a way that I employ it, I think that she tried some variation of such laddering in 2015 (and maybe even extending into 2016), and sometime in 2016, she told me that she was abandoning a laddering kind of an approach because it was not working for her.



I never really sold any btc, except for the occasional, insignificant, small expense. I've always replaced the spent corn asap, and often at a lower price too  Cool Which means I'm basically still in DCA accumulation phase, albeit with irregular frequency, when there is excess fiat that begs promotion to 'real money' status (btc).

I think that it is good to kind of know where you are at, and it also seems that at a certain point, more emotion gets taken out of the feeling of a need to have to accumulate more BTC, like when you largely feel that you have enough... though you likely won't complain if you are able to accumulate more, but you are not really so anxious about a kind of feeling that you need to accumulate more in order to feel comfortable with your overall balancing.

Your ladder concept, however, works very well for me in trading atm. I just extended the concept so I have 2 parallel ladders, one going up (long) and one going down (short). I do tweak a lot, especially to get out of trouble during stormy weather, so I often cut both ladders when I'm in the green and I feel the exposition is making me sweat too much.

I get the sense that you have a decent grasp of what you are doing to prepare for either price direction, so I am glad that you attempt to share some of these concepts, and there are likely some folks who would prefer to employ some variation of an approach that is closer to yours than to mine.. because I am just a bit reluctant, if not hostile to employing shorts, whereby you seem to have found decently prudent ways to make them work to hedge your BTC price direction bets.

Now is such a time. I would be happy to be left with only the long open, but I would like a much lower entry point, so I'm still dancing on two ladders until the corn either makes my long side shine (I'll happily close both ladders, possibly after enlarging the short to match the long) or takes a small nosedive (I'll cash out the short and increase the long a bit, averaging down).

Yep... exactly... she could go in either direction and has been teasing quite a bit in recent days regarding which way she is going to go...

In that regard, from about early December to late March, we seemed to have had experienced a decent amount of boredom, with price swings staying within a pretty small range, but in recent weeks, our BTC price swings have been quite stupendous and interesting and surely good for traders to have opportunities that come more forcefully through periods of decently high levels of volatility.   Surely our BTC volatility could settle down in the coming months, but there is no real way to figure out whether it will settle down and/or for how long, if it were to.

At most times, they're both open - including right now.

I'm only talking about my play money, however. My main stash is in strict hodl mode.

Beware though! Getting roached is just too easy.

70% is totally out of my league. Good for you to spot the top. My sophisticated SOMA analysis tools are still a bit rough around the edges and don't have that kind of performance yet. A whole SOMA team is working on it, though.

I can second that, because after four kids with the same woman, sex becomes pretty rare, and that was when i started to look older faster (and the misses too)... Roll Eyes

On the interwebz, sense of humour has remarkable individual variation.

... which is quite a decent result for an elderly lady if you ask me.

Damn I've been shitposting today (yes, more than usual !)


Must have been a busy day.

Btw I was just teasing fillippone, just my way of saying no one cares here if you double post, whether it's news or something else. We're all shitposters here anyway... and that's cool.

Nuttin' to see here.
Nothing to say either apparently.

May many pigeons shit on that thing.
Adding a bit of class here and there.


Planning any pee pics tonight?
I would appreciate the warning if that's the case.
And a little more...


"We" is everybody, the people, you, me, your neighbors...
Are you that dumb or just pretending here ?

More finesse.


Ok, so who's gonna post the first picture of a botoxed grandma with huge boobs ?
Me !
Yep, I had to.


No kidding !  Grin

Shortest post today, not worse than the others though.

~

Longest post today. I'm not too proud of it, just arguing with a troll in the French forum. I just hope it's over, don't wanna waste time on this.

Who will win this time ?
A bull, a bear ? Maybe me ?
Thanks for the game Mic !

And to finish, a haiku.

Very productive day as you can see.
I will (probably not) do better tomorrow.
