President Trump has instructed the United States Trade Representative to consider $100 billion of additional tariffs on China.

I like this trading war between China and Uncle Sam, who got the bigger balls and who will bow in the end Smiley

Considering the enormous trade deficit the US has with China ($375 Billion), China has a lot more to lose from a trade war. But will they be able to surrender and still save face?

Can we stop pretending three months of crash is somehow tied to tax deadlines?

It would be great.


Remember the chinese new year? Everybody saying it would stabilize after that...

We are all gonna die. Really.


That is 'oddly' comforting.....no matter what happens to crypto boom bust to tulips or whatever


'We are all gonna die. Really'

Puts all this boom or bust crypto 'angst' in perspective...

(sh*t....I got to get out of this chair and typing on bitcointalk and start running regularly, to postpone that outcome asap....) Sad

China is NOT a capitalist country...thus they will ride this down MUCH farther than we can, IMHO, we have lots of 'fat cat' capitalists that will force our gov't to buckle first...

In China....capitalism is used to unite the communist vision of how the world should work ..it is a tool..in the western world..capitalism is the vision...trade is the tool...

(anyway, in my feeble mind...the totalitarian regime, is more worried about power than $$$..thus they will last this out longer...again just in my view..not that I know squat)

The main thing at stake for China is social unrest.  In the entire world, there is no other nation with as much excess production capacity as China.  The world will simply not function on a long timeline with everything being made there.  It's peak globalization so to speak, with no place to go but downwards.  So when they are forced to scale back production capacity, it will be large scale unemployment for a lot of sectors, which then leads to some social chaos and people trying to overthrow the establishment.  This is probably why Xi just made himself dictator.  They foresee shit hitting the fan very soon.

What more evidence do you need that bitcoin is a govt orchestrated scam to try and get people into a cashless society slave system instead of physical metals?

O.k. sure.  None of us really know what is going to go on exactly; however, I consider myself similar to you in having had formed a tentative framework for what I believe is going to happen in terms of short term or long term, and surely I have difficulties attempting to predict on any kind of meaningful basis except having decent considerations that bitcoin is a good long term investment and it is good to accumulate bitcoin, and even if there is short term noise, the fundamentals of bitcoin continue to get stronger and stronger.

Speaking about accumulation - I would certainly like to acquire more coins, but I am reluctant to buy now, when the market is almost uninterruptedly falling. At the same time, shorting bitcoin seems to be a dangerous pursuit. I am not a trader, although I played with some very small amounts about a year ago, before realizing that simply buying and holding can give better results. But at present I am thinking about hedging in the following way: buy bitcoin and simultaneously open a short position for the same amount (probably with 1:1 leverage). If the bear market continues, I would be able to increase both amounts, BTC and fiat. If the trend changes immediately, I would close the shorts. Of course, there is a possibility of another bull trap...

Yes, you seem to have been through quite a few volatile periods, and you seem more pessimistic than me about long term bitcoin fundamentals - even though you seem to have a decently long term following the space.  I gave you a merit for your explanation anyhow, in spite of your "lackings."... hahahahaha

Thanks! I am not pessimistic about fundamentals, I am pessimistic about the economic system in general. The financial capital survived a lot of transitions, from telegraph and telephones to computers and Internet, from precious metals to fiat. It will embrace bitcoin and blockchain if it is profitable, but it will not change the system.

Of course, this concept is fundamental to any volatile investment, but people still use it in differing ways.  I use it to consider that I am not leveraging or betting and that I have my living expenses covered for 6 months into the future with my cash flow, then any extra I can invest into bitcoin.  Over time, that can add up to a lot of money, especially once the bitcoin ends up appreciating 30x... So maybe starting off with a modest $10k ends up in the $300k territory... so motivations can change, even though the initial $10k did not seem to be very much the $300k gets into Lambo territory.. and some folks start to think,.... " I could have had a lambo for $10k?" when the price starts to go down, we can see where there can be emotions... and how much was initially invested can get lost in the shuffle.

At present I have a job that pays well (by local standards) and I am completely independent of any bitcoin fluctuations. It is a stockpile for the future. But cautious investing of my spare money looks appealing now, as it was in the summer of 2017. I am a man of simple tastes, I do not need a Lambo Wink Even 10x from the current level (or 3x from the ATH) would make me quite happy. Of course, 30x is better.

I learn about about myself and about my own stance by attempting to interact on ideas.. but sure, sometimes, just reading can be insightful, too.

Yes, interaction often helps to refine one's own position.

Looks like 6000 is coming soon.

Hopefully that will bottom and then take off.

I got my margin longs ready to support my coin investments.

At some point bull are gonna turn this around... but I wonder if bears are scared to attempt a 6000 bitcoin?

 Roll Eyes

Weren´t we at 11000 just recently ? Now we´re talking 6000. Sometimes, i can´t keep up. Left, Right, and then directly into my balls . . . I´m a masochist !  Smiley
My girfriend  doesn´t understand it either.

This is dropping faster then even I speculated. I thought that you'll get some temporal relief to like 7200$ during the weekend, but looks like it just keeps going down.
The market has 7billion$ worth of annual mining expenses on their back, while very little new money is currently rolling in. So, makes sense.
