I did not consider what I said to have been dumb when I said it.

I thought that I was largely attempting to address the concept of the dead zone, and you had come up with a theory that speculated that the deadzone was NOT a deadzone.

With your more than 9 years in bitcoinlandia, you should already know that those theories of supposed everyone wanting to sell their BTC at the previous ATH had been presented numerous times before, and there tends to be little to no actual evidence to support those kind of selling at previous ATH theories beyond the fact that a lot of people spout them out as if there were facts to actually back them up.  Am I missing something?


I actually think you are attributing something to my words that I did not mean.  I am not predicting some doom and gloom scenario where it is incredibly hard to get past the ATH, or that a pullback after breaching it a little bit is going to be earth shattering.

Again I think back to the last even where bitcoin first re-crossed it's (what was in NOV14?) previous ATH ~1100 or whatever it was.  There was a good pull back after that, and the general air was kinda mixed.  There was a LOT of fear at that time.  In retrospect the entire thing was very quick.  But the road was a little bumpy around that price at the time.

I think there is a good chance we see something like that again.  I dunno HOW good?  50/50?  It doesn't really matter.  But a LOT of people got into bitcoin in late 2017, and some of those have soured on it.  We *will* have to chew through that resistance.  And like I also said it might just get blown by as well. 

But what i am doing is practicing putting on my fog lights now so that when it gets foggy I have the best chance at good outcomes.

If the price drops down then it can go to the level of $9850.
If it keeps going up then the level from $12500 to $13500 is quite strong. Imo

Ok.  Fair enough.  Each of us has made our point in this regard, and it is possible that I may have misunderstood some of your emphasis in terms of how you might want to play this area that I consider to be a deadzone, which is in the territory of between $17,250 and $23,500.

If you have never sold BTC previously, and you consider yourself to be such a strong hand, I remain a bit unclear why you would be contemplating any kind of meaningful resistance within any BTC prices between $17,250 and $23,500?

Might you not be contradicting yourself a bit to be worried about such price arena?  

I personally have suggested to people to take some BTC off the table at various points, which in this case might be before and after the deadzone, but not so much within the deadzone.... but sure, each BTC HODLer has their own way of dealing with how to manage their finances and their psychology, and surely planning does make it less likely that any BTC HODLer would run the risk of panicking.. whither that is selling too much too early or other strategic errors that might be too numerous to list.

By the way, as you may have recognized, I frequently talk about short-term BTC price movements in terms of 50/50 chances, but I don't talk that way about the deadzone... so that was probably why I was all on your case regarding the probabilities that you seemed to have been assigning to the deadzone, including the motives of various kinds of BTC HODLers that would supposedly be "feeling" like bag holders.

My own thesis continues to be that the Bagholder theory is a bunch of bullshit.

There are not so many people who supposedly bought BTC in the supra $14k to $20k range and are so fucking anxious to get rid of their BTC merely because all of a sudden they are in profits 3 years or more later.  Sure, there might be some dumb asses who think about their BTC Holdings in such a way, but the vast majority who have not already been shaken from their BTC holdings would have had nearly 3 years to buy some more and to average their prices down, and so what, anyhow, if there are some folks who are whining about having a negative BTC portfolio because they sat on their hands for 3 years and did not do shit to bring down their average cost per BTC.  They are aberrations and they are going to be out numbered by various other kinds of buyers, whether newbies or other kinds of buyers who are going to cause the BTC price to go shooting past the deadzone and the previous ATH.. whether it takes 3-4 months or more and whether there might be some headfakes within that deadzone..  once we get above  $17,250, pretty much we are going to be going above $23,500 and largely you can count on it with higher than 50/50 odds.. one of the rare moments in bitcoin probabilities that odds are NO longer 50/50 or lower.

exactamente!!!!

Dickering around at $11k is way better than dickering around at $9,300s and even $9,300s was much better than when we were dickering around in the $6ks/$7ks for much of April.

I am not worried.  I am interested.  And I enjoy trying to see into the future.  And psychology plas a role in it.  The very name of this thread has to do with buy/sell walls, which arguably are used as a tool for market manipulation as well as just being a buy/sell.

I personally have suggested to people to take some BTC off the table at various points, which in this case might be before and after the deadzone, but not so much within the deadzone.... but sure, each BTC HODLer has their own way of dealing with how to manage their finances and their psychology, and surely planning does make it less likely that any BTC HODLer would run the risk of panicking.. whither that is selling too much too early or other strategic errors that might be too numerous to list.

Your deadzone idea is interesting... We will just have to see how it plays out.  I am good either way.

Surely, looking forward to it.

We each realize that some of the BTC price resistance points change, depending on BTC price movements and sometimes how fast the BTC price might move in one direction or another or even how severe or prolonged a correction might be.

Currently, we do seem to be stuck in a fairly narrow BTC price zone around $11k, but we have only been here for 3.5 days.

So sure it would be quite amazing (but not out of the question) if we were to get into the deadzone within the next 1 week to 3 months... and in that kind of quicker getting there scenario, I would expect resistance at $13,880 and at $17,250.. and also more likelihood to fail getting through the deadzone, if we get there so quickly - especially given that we were having troubles getting above and staying above $10k for about the past 10 months or so.

On the other hand, if it takes more than 3 months or even up to 18 months in your slowly getting up there scenario to break above $17,250, then that might change the dynamics and probably in that longer drawn out scenario, I would think that my deadzone theory would be stronger in a slowly getting there scenario, but either way, I am maintaining a tentative deadzone theory but that deadzone theory would be weaker, if we were to go shooting up within the zone in less than 3 months without getting some kind of somewhat meaningful correction first.

I'm thinking his grandkids will have learned something from him here as I'm sure they didn't learn anything useful otherwise.

Death can certainly be amusing, there are many worthless people in this world and this one had more than enough time to do his damage.

Respect is earned I have not seen anything from him worthy of respect.

But that is my opinion you of course can have your own.

I think that political division has caused some of us to find situations "amusing" based upon political stances of certain people, and I recall that Herman Cain was advocating against taking personal protection precautions in regards to the virus, such as against masks.. or social distancing..  .. if he did die from Corona based on NOT taking adequate precautions and based on his previously taken public stances on the matter that were contrary to science and even contrary to facts or practical logic, that seems to justify that the matter might be a bit amusing - even if he ended up paying with his life...

I think that I took some similar stances in regards to the irony of public anti-virus stances of Boris Johnson catching Corona and also that preacher who died from covid after attending marti gras and being so vocal about the purported fakeness of the virus. .. blah blah blah.. .

It is sad that we should rejoice (if that is what we are doing?.. but.. some of the folks kind of bring such attack on themselves too, in their earlier public anti-science and anti-facts stances) the death of these kinds of seemingly publicly dumb people.

There had been some outrageous virus deniers out there, but some of the actual statistics, including actual deaths make it more difficult to deny either the existence of the virus or that a variety of precautions and virus focused preventative measures might be in order to consider and to implement... science and fact based, especially.   Wink  amusing, funny or strange as that might be.   Cry

Surely, we are not going to agree about a lot of the details, but it is true that some kinds of  stances in regards to misinformation just go way too far, especially from supposed leaders.. and sometimes we might think that they might just be being dumb, but sometimes the seeming ongoing denials of science and facts just seems to go way too far... - like it is on purpose... so purposefully misleading and therefore harmful to too many people.

And, hey, I surely don't believe that there is only one way to view the science or the facts, and surely, I am not of the thinking that neither politics or economics matter, because those things are important too.. and can even help to determine how to focus relief based on weighing costs and benefits on a societal level, and we can even disagree about some of that..

Yet, in any event, I would include myself as one of those who get kind of irritated by the various anti-science people and the anti-facts people who are proclaiming that they are not that way.. and I am pretty sure that Cain was one of those kind of folks.. so the karma aspect of this situation does seem to apply here.. at least tentatively from what seems to had been some of his recent stances.. prior to his death... and maybe I would not use the word amusing, even though I do understand that it was meant in a karma sense rather than any kind of personal vindictive sense (though there may reasonably be those kinds of feelings, too.. especially given the gravity of the ongoing bullshit and even ongoing lying that should have been corrected more than 8-9 months after learning about this virus thingie).

You have described my opinion on this matter better than I have. I lose my mind when I see those in positions of power being irresponsible with people lives. That is a line that shouldn't be crossed because of politics, no matter what party is doing it.
