so $8254.3 in my chart was a high. it goes down a bit now. I should have closed the long. but to late.  Roll Eyes

I don't know the numbers, and each one of us is different, but I'd keep the long open if the entry point is within the current range. With shorts I'm much more draconian. In the mean time, cash out part of the short! If you manage to make them equal you're net green and you can wrap it up if you feel unsure.



thanks Eddie. I have to quit now. so much time spend today again with WO sisters and brothers!  Grin #nohomo

@Dabs, this feels like home doesn't it?

For a good ... almost entire year (maybe even 2 or 3) ... this is where I lurk and post, while doing other stuff in other threads unrelated and just minding my own business ... whatever sig I have doesn't even count in this particular thread ... then try to do one small act of kindness to some random newbie who probably has no clue what a merit is and people think I'm abusing merit.

I wander out of this thread for a little bit, then I get crucified. Back to Observing the Wall. Much nicer in here.

Yeah, this is by far the best, friendliest thread on the entire forum. I’ve actually met & made some RL friends in this thread.

We sit in a privileged position because we live and breathe this every day.  But don’t make the mistake of extrapolating our knowledge and experience to the broader market. 


This is a good point. There are some skills you can transfer to other markets, but crypto is special.



I see we got ourself an *sshole and an underaged person (child on the thread??)

*strongly recommend to change your behavior when posting on the WALL, thread us with the respect we all earned and deserve, when you have some rangs in here then maybe start with joking etc

I hadn't been following this closely for a while, but the class action complaint against Tether/BitFinex makes things look pretty bad for them... How important are they to the current ecosystem at this point? How much has the risk of Finex+USDT going the way of MtGox already been priced in?

The complaint doesn't completely convince me that Finex was printing USDT to manipulate prices, though it's certainly possible. I've been skeptical of USDT's backing for a long time. If they weren't manipulating, then the whole matter looks like the US government stole their money and then turned around and said, "Now you're operating at fractional reserve, so you're fraudulent!"

Reading through it shows just how hard it has been for Bitfinex/Tether to maintain a bank account with so many governments and banks getting in their way.

I do not know who the Plaintiffs are but I assume they are butthurt bcash and shitcoin holders who are mad that Bitcoin won the split war due to the value rising. "Tether’s monopoly power allows it to raise prices and exclude competition within the cryptocurrency market."

They provide zero evidence, all circumstantial about correlations between the price going up and the release of Tether, including times that they had difficulty with their banks but they assume that those banks were their only path of getting funds. As someone who lives outside of the US and has to deal with these shitty banks, you figure out ways to move money in non-traditional ways (completely legally).

It is more a study in how much KYC/AML laws are shit and everyone needs to just get all of their money into bitcoin already so they don't have to deal with that bullshit.

Yes.  About a year and a half ago, pretty much Hairy admitted that he was relying on fractal comparisons, and surely I have been vocally critical of such fractal comparison reliances, even though they have largely been playing out - with, of course, some upwards deviation with our 3.5x outburst from April 1 to end of June, and currently what appears to be a return to the mean of the fractal... So whatever the fuck lack of comparison seems to still be working out in a very comparable way.


So, maybe there has never been such a system in the world, but who fucking cares?  It still has worked out quite well in bitcoin for a lot of us BTC HODLers and accumulators to be continuing to become richie and to increase our richness through the fact that BTC prices continue to go up in the longer term.. just like the silly fucking ass fractal comparisons seem to suggest.  Go figure?  

Now you roach, on the other hand, have had some mediocre gold price appreciation during this calendar year (which has gotten you all excited, and even a bit more cocky than usual), and maybe you should be taking advantage of that mediocre gold price appreciation and getting into a real future asset.. ie bitcoin?  dumb ass.

There is no TA comparison in legacy financial markets because there is no comparable asset in legacy financial markets.

There is no financial instrument with fixed supply to be paid out over a century where the rate of supply halves every four years as regular as the Olympics.  It is this regular drum beat that causes us to pound out the same patterns.  Yes the drum beat will get weaker over time as inflation falls away, but it is strong now and will remain strong through this halvening and likely the next.

I have spoken to investment bankers at Goldman Sachs and JP Morgan who do TA on Bitcoin and in their arrogance they have never heard of the halvening.   So they can’t plan for it and they can’t front run it.   Even among retail investors, most of whom are focused on chasing shitcoins, they have no understanding of how the entire market is run by the drum beat of Daddy Bitcoin.

We sit in a privileged position because we live and breathe this every day.  But don’t make the mistake of extrapolating our knowledge and experience to the broader market.  



I agree that we have halving knowledge, but here comes the test...
If this time around halving and S/F extension to above 50 (closer to gold) would produce 55K-90K prices (conservatively), THEN our position was truly privileged. If not, then it is still mostly random fluctuation. I hope for the former and I am keenly aware of the latter.

Most of you were probably not around the Internet bubble 1. In 1997-2000 it was simply great. No matter what you bought (out of major and even minor Internet stocks), you were doing great. Then came B2B Internet stocks and early biotechs (with no product) that inflated to tens of billions almost from the get go.
Anyone investing in these stocks has seen only a tremendous bull.
Then it all crashed (even AMZN -from $100 to $5).
If you look at the charts of the Internet stocks during 1997-2000, they looked peachy and projected fundamentals (at least of  AMZN, EBAy, etc) were even better than expected. Still everything crashed.

Granted, those stocks did not have a 'halving engine' beneath them and maybe this would be a critical factor.
However, litecoin (not bitcoin) has similar halving process, yet it crashed very badly AFTER undergoing halving recently (albeit it was rising toward halving). Maybe it does not count because it is a minor coin, but arguing that halving works only on one entity is presumptuous.

TL;DR The upcoming halving would be a huge test of the 'halving engine' and S/F guideline idea. Fingers crossed.

Gosh Biodom.   Shocked Shocked Shocked

You have a tendency to be overly skeptical regarding the bullish case for bitcoin, and even the realistic case regarding what is really going on here, in bitcoinlandia.   

If I did not see you on a regular basis in this here thread (and tending to NOT spout any nonsense about shitcoins), I would speculate that you are susceptible to getting lured into some altcoin or some other nonsense.    Huh     Huh
