today the dollar got stronger but bitcoin also was rising.  usually, when the dollar is strong bitcoin is falling and when the dollar is weak, bitcoin price rises. check the charts and look what happened in 2017 and also in the first half of 2020.

decouple from eth
decouple from dollar
decouple from gold
decouple from stocks

this will be fun.

BTC already has decoupled from those above and a variety of other asset classes too, such as property, collectibles, etc.

you keep saying this...let's see the data.

It is worth repeating..... especially when peeps.. including long-timers like 600watt (who likely know better) seem to have gotten the characterization wrong based no failure/refusal to adequately zoom their lil selfies out a bit MOAR better... (no homo 600w)

You can look at the charts that go from 2012 to present...

For example, look at the DCA chart that makes the comparison between BTC, gold and equities on an 8 year time scale.  You can adjust the time period in order to show shorter periods, but here, we are talking about longer timeframes of 8 years or so.

Bitcoin has 70x price appreciation over that period, Gold and equities have 46% price appreciation.  Of course, there are up and down waves in there that you can see with bitcoin, and gold and equities appear to be flat because they are so god-damned minuscule in comparison to bitcoin.


If you cannot recognize a lack of correlation within those kinds of longer term glances and you need it spoon-fed more to you, that is not on me..


In 2020 bitcoin has a pretty good correlation with the stock market.

Who gives a shit?

Zoom out, and I am not even denying that short term correlations have appeared to exist at several points in BTC's price history and I am not even suggesting to go back before 2012 because in some sense, bitcoin was quite a bit more immature in terms of ways to be able to engage in price discovery, and of course, more liquidity avenues and ways to price discover are developing in BTC on an ongoing basis.. but truly we gotta start somewhere, and 2012 seems to be largely fair for the moment, even if BTC has those others outgunned based on its immaturity that causes quite a bit of the lack of correlation, but of course there are other factors as well that contribute to bitcoin's lack of correlation.


One can argue that non-correlation seen prior was a temporary phenomenon due to a small size and lack of the institutional investment.

Of course, you can you can argue those points, and there are some odds that you could possibly be correct in your assessment.

I would suggest that the odds are against you in making such a bet, and it is on you whether you are going to make such a bet, right?  

Hopefully, you won't drag anyone (especially innocent peeps) else with you in terms of causing them to NOT buy bitcoin, sit on the fence and/or fail refuse to adequately prepare their lil selfies for UPpity.


It is plausible to suggest that with the increase of institutional investment, bitcoin will start to correlate more, not less, but I am eager to be convinced otherwise.

No need to be eager about being convinced because I am not even going to try to convince you ab out whatever the various factors that you are weighing in order to see either past correlation or to speculate about likely future correlation... because of course, those various scenarios that you describe are plausible.. and I am not proclaiming otherwise.

It remains up to you, and others how they are going to allocate their value into BTC as compared with other possible investments (to the extent that they have any value to allocate into BTC) in the event that bitcoin trends UPpity rather than sideways, down or some nonsensical largely correlation scenario.
 

If bitcoin has 90-100% correlation to a stock market, it would be less attractive as a potential hedge.

It is true that bitcoin would not be a very attractive investment under such a hypothetical.. and part of the reason that we hedge is that we do not know the future, exactly.

Historically, we have seen that bitcoin does not come anywhere even close to having had such levels of correlation, and regarding the future, it sure seems quite likely that it will NOT have anything close to having such levels of correlation into future.    Tongue


Sure, you are likely correct that as bitcoin matures, the level of its volatility seems to be coming down and likely to continue to come down.. which may also contribute towards more correlation between bitcoin and other assets (such as stocks, gold and other assets) rather than less correlation.

All of this verbiage is relevant only if you started LONG time ago.

If you started 1 year ago and DCA ($100/wk), then $$ in btc are amazingly, 100% (or close to it) correlated with Gold and 90% correlated with stocks.

Check for yourself at your fav link.

https://dcabtc.com?sd=2019-09-25&sda=1_year&f=weekly&d=1_year&ac=10000&c=true

Thereby, I pronounce btc "currently correlated"...until it is not.

The fact that it was not correlated in 2012-2019 is great for those who invested back then, including many here, but does nothing for the newcomers.
Maybe for newcomers it is just a better form of money, NOT a better investment vehicle.

However, if btc appreciate just 7% yearly from now on going forward, I would be largely content as long as it is limited to a 50% yearly draw-down, like a stock market and NOT 50% daily decline.

Haha, I also guessed that this coin will be promising enough, but seeing the market cap right now, well...
However, is this the biggest shitcoin? because I think that there are so many shitcoins that are more and more dumped and lost down to earth really. Many others have decreased very drastically that makes their holders frustrating. Let's see how some coins in 2017 has very high price and now the price really dumps so highly.
Aise from its shitcoin or not, I fact, the price keeps decreasing. But once more, is it because of the condition of the market today? or really influenced by their statement?
IT is the biggest shitcoin. Have you seen the latest inquest about how much of this LNK has been consistently dumping on to exchanges from one address.
They have determined $258 million usd are in possession and have been dumping since it's inception.
This wallet has recently "released" hundreds of thousands chainlink tokens onto exchanges and was found that the one who was FUDDING because of a short they were holding on an exchange wanted it to be dumped back to $0.50 again.
Follow up on Zeus capital and see what their story into this chainlink saga is all about.
You will see what market manipulation is all about. Undecided

Defi is but a meme money maker. Grin
https://www.coindesk.com/money-reimagined-memes-mean-money

Based seems to be promising project for all this defi nonsense put into one site...

"Based.Money is a project of the Ghouls, a loose consortium of crypto developers, artists, designers and meme makers. Friday night, the outfit will release its newest project since BASED, the rebasing game dropped this summer during the boom of Weird DeFi.
Based.Money is a game that riffs on Ampleforth’s rebasing mechanic, where it makes a daily readjustment in the supply of BASED tokens, adjusting the amount in everyone’s wallet. It’s a game of optimizing for the right time to get in and get out. "

All of this verbiage is relevant only if you started LONG time ago.

You can call it "verbiage" if you want.  I was merely attempting to give you an explanation and to respond to your various points.

If you started 1 year ago and DCA ($100/wk), then $$ in btc are amazingly, 100% (or close to it) correlated with Gold and 90% correlated with stocks.

Check for yourself at your fav link.

https://dcabtc.com?sd=2019-09-25&sda=1_year&f=weekly&d=1_year&ac=10000&c=true

Of course, I already looked at the various timelines.  The longer that you have been in bitcoin the BIGGER the disparities between bitcoin and the two other assets (gold and equities).

That is not saying anything different from what i said, or points that I was making.

The actual website does not really matter... it is just an easy peasy way of showing comparisons.  I doubt that it really differs much from other websites (except for there is an ability to plug in dollar cost averaging investment information), it is just easy to reference.    



Thereby, I pronounce btc "currently correlated"...until it is not.

You can live in a pie in the sky world too, and hope that you end up being correct.

The fact that it was not correlated in 2012-2019 is great for those who invested back then, including many here, but does nothing for the newcomers.

You are coming off as a bit of a wishful thinking goofball rather than someone who is really trying to account for actual facts.

These same claims of correlation had been made before, too.  You can take other periods of time in which bitcoin had been performing somewhat flat, like in 2011, 2012 and 2015, 2016, and the same kinds of claims of correlation could have been made.. and sometimes they were... at least in 2015/2016... but I was not around in 2011/2012 and of course, Bitcoin was much smaller back then, too.

Maybe for newcomers it is just a better form of money, NOT a better investment vehicle.

For newcomers it is better to take a long investment horizon and build your investment, and 10 or 20 years, will have good chances of appreciating against other assets or other investments..

that better form of money nonsense largely died with the BIG blockers and those nonsense narratives, even though those narratives continue to exist somewhat in a less predominant form.

On an individual basis, of course, you can find people who think all kinds of nonsensical things... so there is that angle, too.,, You can proclaim "maybe people think" blah blah blah..,. but seems like nonsense. Maybe you think those things, and you are suggesting that other people think those same things, too?

However, if btc appreciate just 7% yearly from now on going forward, I would be largely content

Personally, I am already prepared for that... so no problema with me.... I was thinking at least 5.5% when I got into bitcoin in late 2013, and it largely has performed way above expectations, even though it took a bit of time (3 years-ish) for my first purchased coins to be profitable.

as long as it is limited to a 50% yearly draw-down, like a stock market and NOT 50% daily decline.

Who knows... ?

Seems likely that BIG drawdowns will continue to occur... and those 50% daily drops could happen too.., from time to time... Maybe you should just get out of bitcoin now so that you don't have to worry about 50% drawdowns.. you could get out right now, or maybe slowly between now and $17k..   If you don't want to sell all of it, just sell most of it, so that you are not so psychologically bothered.. Perhaps you are a bit over invested since you are suggesting that some of those possible considerable volatility events happenings are too much for you?    

Ultimately, you need to find a comfortable balance for yourself.. could help you from overly worrying which seems to be skewing what you are saying in your most recent posts.

All of this verbiage is relevant only if you started LONG time ago.

If you stated 1 year ago and DCA ($100/wk), then $$ in btc are amazingly, 100% (or close to it) correlated with Gold and 90% correlated with stocks.

Expect the mind of ephemeral Homer when reading my posts.

I misunderstood your emoji, until I just checked the associated alt text.  D’oh!  I apologize for having come off as insulting to you about that issue.  I will edit my prior post to note this.

Homer Simpson is a cultural pet peeve of mine, for so very many reasons; but I would not have made that personal to you, if I hadn’t thought that you were ridiculing me for not being sufficiently “hip” and modern!

Interpretation of emojis, icons, and other pictograms:  Another modern problem. :-(

~snip


 I'm glad you managed to wade through the absurdity of it all and realize the error of my ways.

I object just as vehemently to the political correction of old stories as to the analogous butchery of language.

(A) Good:  Apply old fable, allegorical myth, or other literary scenario to new situation.

(B) Bad:  Bowdlerize old story because it’s XYZist.  A Newspeak of cultural semiotics, similar to the Newspeak of individual words.  Have you seen “modernized” versions of old stories?  Disgusting!

(C) Good:  Use old language in the modern day, with such minor adaptations and neologisms as rationally required to communicate about genuinely new things (e.g., “aeroplanes”, “motor-cars”, or the “Internetwork”).

(D) Bad:  Orwellian Newspeak.  Hardfork* the language without consensus, so that cultural scammers can hijack control of cultural values by artificially twisting and limiting the words used to express concepts.

You call me a hypocrite for embracing A, but rejecting D.  You thus hold that A is like D.

I say that A : C :: B : D.

Mmmm, analogies.


intentional non sequitur : humourous nonsense-analogy :: doughnut : olive branch


* Yes, hardfork.  Longstanding linguistic consensus has been changed in an irrational way; and the backwards-incompatible change is enforced by virtual lynch mobs, Kafkaesque persecutions, and socioeconomic terrorism.  Observe how people get attacked over using the “incorrect” pronouns, i.e. the correct pronouns!  If you refuse the hardfork changes, then there are zealots who want you universally shunned, fired from your job, and cancelled out of existence.  And they are gaining more power by the day—nobody pushes back!

OK, @JJG, you have no counterpoint, basically.
Historical references are of limited value going forward.
I could give a rat's ass about the 20 year horizon, mostly interested in 3-7 years time frame.
In the time frame long enough, we are all dead and then ....the Universe is dead too.

I thought that I responded to all points.   You were the one protecting the it is correlated thesis.. and I was saying nonsense.. and you believe that I needed to provide more evidence, perhaps?  which I believe that I provided more than enough..

 In any event, you likely realize that no one knows the future, but the three most dominant bitcoin price prediction models have some pretty decent ways in which you can be helped to determine how to allocate, if that is the problema on your mind, currently...

You know the models as well as me, even if you might not give much credence to any of them or their combined power... which are: 1) stock to flow 2) four-year fractal and 3) s-curve adoption based on networking effects and metcalfe principles.

Sure, if you have been in bitcoin for a while, then you have already past what i had already suggested several times to be a minimum of a 4-year investment timeline for your bitcoins, and so if you are adding another 3 years on to your timeline, minimum, then what are you wanting me to suggest that you consider?  

You want to speculate correlation blah blah blah, and you seem to be worried about volatility in the future, especially that downside volatility could happen at various points that might not be convenient for you, either psychologically or financially.

I already suggested the possibility of lessening your investment in BTC if you are so worried that you might have too much in and you cannot tolerate the possible benefits of bitcoin might NOT be as great as the possible corrections, due to correlation theories, and if you believe that bitcoin is not any better than stocks, gold or whatever you are considering as a possible reallocation of the value of your investment.

Regarding timeline, you well know that someone in his/her 20s is going to have longer investment time horizons as compared with someone in his/her 30s, 40s, 50s or 60s... and surely someone in his 30s or 40s, might become a bit worried if s/he were to pull any kind of fuck you lever too early.. so might well be in a harder place to actually start to divest (or liquidate) any of their bitcoin so they may well be willing to stick to longer investment time horizons... so death woould not be immediately on the minds of the folks in the lower end of the age-spectrum.

I have surely NOT been suggesting that peeps should not have shorter-term plans to make your "we are all dead" statement make any sense.  

Based on ongoing comments from you over the past several months, you seem to be who has high expectations of your minimum portfolio value to need to be something like $6million and accordingly seeming to be way more reluctant to suggest the pulling of any kind of fuck you lever, as compared to me considering that $2million might be more of a realistic aim.. though I am not really against anyone who feels a need for some kind of cushion.. so I have been recently ongoingly considering the 200 week moving average as a good Bitcoin price calculation point.. which is currently at about $6,700.

 Surely, if you are not even considering the fuck you stage, then you would be merely considering how much of your value to allocate into bitcoin or to reallocate out of bitcoin in the even that you believe that the BTC price might be appreciating faster than you believe to be sustainable.. ..

In other words, you seem to be the one who is ongoingly fearing the blow off top and those kinds of ways to protect yourself from downside volatility.. which likely says more about your overallocation into bitcoin than anything or at least your need to get more comfortable with whatever allocation levels that you have chosen and your plan to deal with possible blow off tops or other kinds of downside volatility - especially if you are starting to contemplate that BTC upside scenarios might not even be coming to bitcoin.   Cry Cry Cry   which hopefully does not cause you to sell too much too soon or fail to sufficiently invest.., which could well happen when you have those kinds of fears, too.

In the end, I have hardly any kind of idea what you are saying, except that bitcoin might end up turning into being correlated to various other investment possibilities that you have such as stocks, gold blah blah blah, which surely might be true, but it might not as well, so hopefully you are adequately prepared for the scenario that bitcoin might not be as correlated as you are anticipating it to be.  Go figure what it is that you have been saying, exactly?  

Perhaps the below image captures the seemingly ambiguous position that you currently find ur lil selfie?

Something changed and I can feel it, however it is difficult to convey intuition.
In 2017 everybody was very concerned about btc split,e tc, yet it went from 1K to 20K.
In 2019-2020 everybody (PlanB, PTJ, prominent bloggers, etc) keep saying how great btc is, invest half a bil $$ (the Saylor man), yet here we are, STUCK (and lower than in 2019, which is much earlier in the supposedly bullish cycle).
Nobody had rationalized these doldrums yet.
The fact that Pomp (with an unknown investment prowess) and Raoul Pal are now all in btc does not give me particularly good vibes.
They are good at blogging, NOT investment.
I look at Raoul Pal as a contrarian indicator...usually whatever he says moves 180 degrees (aka in the opposite direction).

Perhaps the below image captures the seemingly ambiguous position that you currently find ur lil selfie?



 Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy

Damn, Jay.  And I thought that I was harsh.

Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy

Protip:  If you actually need choreographic directions (rather than her statement just being a stock phrase to egg you on), then ur lil selfie is already in a humiliating position.  You are supposed to be leading the dance (and you had better know how to do that—which most men don’t, nowadays; I mean generally, not only in the bedroom).  Unless she takes relationship advice from the type of website or magazine that runs articles reading, “Top Ten Sexiest Things Ever:  1. When he asks me what I want!”  In that case, you have much deeper problems; if you’re already all in with her, you’re fucked.

I am still buying, it's just I don't like the action since the summer of 2019.
Something changed and I can feel it, however it is difficult to convey intuition.

You come off as so random, sometimes, Biodom.

I am NOT trying to poo poo your intuition because surely each of us has rights to our feelings, even if we feel as if we cannot express them well or we feel that we cannot identify exactly why we feel the way that we do.

Surely, whatever various whale forces that are out there, whether they are genuine or not (meaning that some of them might use FUD spreading and all kinds of tactics in order to take advantage of BTC price momentum to push BTC prices further and longer than anyone had expected), any kind of rational and knowledgable person in regards to the BTC space should have gotten some kind of feeling of relief by the time we had gotten to the summer of 2019..... holy fuck, Biodom, in summer 2019, you really were feeling the opposite, as if "something smells fishy?"

I don't get it.  In the end of 2018 and in early 2019, we were faced with shit-fuck November/December capitulation from $6k to nearly $3k.. so we were kind of fucked and in a bit of a pickle...  and thereafter floating in the $3ks that lasted for more than 3 months.    Not good.. Not good.  I was there.

Holy fucking shit, Biodom, we got 3.5x BTC price appreciation from $4,200 to $13,880 within 3 months (from April 1 to the end of June 2019), and even if such BTC price appreciation was not sustainable, it materially delivered a way the fuck better situation than we were facing throughout 2015.. and bitcoin pumped and shitcoins just sat there like bumps on the log (and many even lost value during that time - especially relative to BTC prices).  

In comparison, in 2015, we got nearly nothing all year.. hardly any ray of hopium through much of the year.  We had one price run in July that brought us from $250 to $317, and then we reverted into the mid $200s for the rest of the year, until the end of October, we did not get shit...

So, holy fucking shit, Biodom, you really believe that bearwhales or whoever the fuck else wants to keep BTC prices down really wanted BTC prices to go up 3.5x in three months? when there could have just as reasonably been a BTC price correction down to $1,500 or lower, and that could have easily been our fate for 2019.. Personally, I was relieved as fuck to NOT have to experience a correction down to $1,500 or lower , even though it would have been well within reasonable possibilities regarding where we were at and how much manipulation could have been carried out by some parties that may have been a bit more determined to cause it to happen.

Sure, I would have continued to buy.. but I would not have liked it.

Sure, I would have continued to be a bull(tard), but I would have had quite a bit less pep in my step.

Sure, further corrections, like that (down to sub $1,500) would have likely caused quite a bit more time to recover (and likely would have purged a whole fucking lot of shit coins), and I would have beared through it, and accumulated more bitcoin and felt a bit resentful.

I am surely glad that we had a pump, rather than a dump in early 2019... and no fucking whimpy pump.... an actual fucking amazing face melting pump that left even the greatest of bulls with their mouths hanging open... did you see jojo during that time?  nervous like a little girl.  And, completely shut Searing up for quite a long time, too.  Sure the dude was his usual bullish cheerfulness, but I know that behind the scenes, he was slapping himself in the face to make sure that he was not merely within some kind of non HODL pattern nightmare.

Anywhoo... 2019... great as fuck year for our lil fiend, aka kingdaddy.



In 2017 everybody was very concerned about btc split,e tc, yet it went from 1K to 20K.

Sure, I was there Biodom, by the time we got to early 2017, we were already gaining momentum.. and little whiny fucktwat BIG blockers were trying to ruin dee moo all year long and we continued to gravitate upwards and kind of got caught in a $2k holding pattern for a few months around the forkening and those various disputes... but they were pretty resolutely resolved in favor of bitcoin for anyone "in the know" who could see what was actually happening while the whole situation remained confusing.. the outcome was bullish as fuck and was shown in the price exasperation... similar to the pump of April to June 2019.. the pump of October to December 2017 was filled with outrageous exuberance... partly fueled by bitcoin's victory over a bunch of shittwats and even BIG business folks trying to tell king daddy what to do.. and king daddy was not having it.  

You can read that 2017 blow off top, however, you would like to read it.. and even weigh whatever factors that you want to weigh because there are always going to be various interpretations of what happened and what effect that situation has on our current situation (where we are at now), and where we are more likely to go from here.


In 2019-2020 everybody (PlanB, PTJ, prominent bloggers, etc) keep saying how great btc is, invest half a bil $$ (the Saylor man), yet here we are, STUCK (and lower than in 2019, which is much earlier in the supposedly bullish cycle).

So?  

King daddy is coiling.. whether you want to see it or not.

You can get all worried about bitcoin is not going to go up, and sure, there could be another correction down to $6k or whatever, but does not negate the fact that king daddy is continuing to coil.. even if it takes a while to play out (perhaps even a bit longer than we might have hoped.. and that continues to be how weak hands are shaken.. keep the price down for longer than anyone expects and lower than anyone expects it to go, and then when they lose control of it (those diptwats betting on down); hopefully they are not on the wrong side when the regression to the mean (UPpity) is likely to take place and to cause violent upside that is way worse than it should be based on BTC's price being held down for too long and too low.

You can deny it all you like, and surely I am not saying that anything is guaranteed, either..

For example, we could get all kinds of deviation from the various BTC price prediction models, but that would not necessarily cause them to be broken.. but they might need to be adjusted somewhat...

And, guess the fuck who would like you (us) to believe that the BTC price prediction models are broken?  The ones who are wanting to part you from your coins.  That's who.


Nobody had rationalized these doldrums yet.
The fact that Pomp (with an unknown investment prowess) and Raoul Pal are now all in btc does not give me particularly good vibes.
They are good at blogging, NOT investment.
I look at Raoul Pal as a contrarian indicator...usually whatever he says moves 180 degrees (aka in the opposite direction).

Sure bitcoin has a variety of free marketers.. and people who are touting out all kinds of pro-btc stuff, but surely small group of people are really in charge, and they each have a right to say whatever they want, pump whatever messages they like too.  Some of the messages will resonate and some will not.

And who fucking gives any shits about those two... I mean, sure, I listen to Pomp regularly, but have you ever looked at the Bitcoin podcasting space?  Holy fucking shit?  It is way the fuck BIGGER than it was in 2016.  I cannot even come close to listening to the podcasts that are in my feed, and I tend to listen to a lot of them at 2x and even to skim through a lot of them in order to focus on the better content... and my point is that the material is way more prolific, profound and amazing... there are so many fucking smart people who are involved in bitcoin and putting out all kinds of content, and they are way the fuck newer than you and me, Biodom.

I mean you, Biodom, have probably been involved in bitcoin at least as long as me, if NOT a bit longer, and some of these new guys (and even a gal or so, here and there) had only come into bitcoin in recent times such as 2017 or sometimes I hear fucking geniuses who have only been into bitcoin for a year or even a bit longer than that... it is amazing how smart some of them are, and contributing to the bitcoin ideas and marketing of bitcoin space for free.. and we surely do not need to agree with them.. and we can take what we like and leave what we like.

And hopefully, in the end, we are using various information and perspectives to better hone our own ideas in order that we can better know whatwegonnadu.. back to the original questions regarding allocations that help each of us to personally figure out our own situation in order to figure out how are we going to allocate in order to pee pare our lil selfies both psychologically and financially for either UP or DOWN (or the rare event of sideways).

We should be able to plan these matters out in order that we are comfortable no matter what direction our lil fiend goes
and we are not emotional about it.

You already have a pretty decent idea what I do, right?  I buy if it goes down and I sell if it goes up... and on an ongoing basis, I try to create set ups in which I am completely neutral regarding what direction she goes.  Sure there are sometimes very long periods (such as a month or longer) that none of my orders fill.. and sure sometimes if the price goes shooting down, I end up buying a bunch of BTC, but I might feel a bit irritated that I am quite a bit less rich than I was prior to the shooting down of the price, but largely we have seen through the years that the BTC price recovers, and my price per BTC continue to go down and the quantity goes up.. except when the BTC price goes shooting up, then the quantity of my BTC goes down, but the value of my BTC portfolio is worth way more than what it had been prior to the shooting up.  

It all seems to work..

I mean we are much better off than 2015 when the BTC was in the mid $200s for most of the year.

we are much better off than 2016 when the BTC bounced between $350 and $700 for most of the year, and finally got meaningfully above $700 at the end of the year.

Sure the price peaked in 2017, but don't we feel better off because the lowest of the BTC dip in December 2018 was $3,124...

Does that not feel better than earlier, and gosh we are playing around with mid-$10ks.. and feels pretty good to me.

I don't care whether we go up or not, even though I will be much MOAR richie if we were to happen to go up rather than sideways (not too likely) or down.. and hopefully we do not go below the 200 Week moving average, which is $6,700-ish as I type.....

So, as the 200 week moving average continues to go up with the passage of time, currently approaching gains of $100 per week... i am just feeling more and MOAR richie with the passage of time, and for the past several months, I have been glad to be introduced and to start using the 200 week moving average as my BTC price bottom measuring point... I think that the 200 week moving average is pretty conservative and reasonable to use as a running BTC price bottom reference point..

Maybe I am delusional?

But the whole situation continues to feel good man.
