How much alt coin diversification is needed? 0%?

September 05, 2019, 05:35:25 AM



I bought decent amount worth of bitcoin when it hits $8500 to $9000 in 2018 but after that it went to $3000 nearly which is the place most of the people lost their faith and sold their bitcoin for extreme losses.But you know I didn't do that mistake and now in profits Smiley

You were not able to buy below $8,500 and above $3,120 between about late 2018 and about May 2019?

Or did you feel that you were already too much invested in BTC?
I bought in mid 2018 not sure about the exact month but I bought where there is a bump from 6K region to 9K so I though that this is the bull run so buy and holding will make more profits then only I realized that it was bull trap so now I need to wait longer to get reap.

Anyway I started doing trades with small amount from my holding and making small profits and increased my total btc holdings.

I see that you registered in this forum just before the December 2017 peak.  Did you buy BTC in 2017?

You may know my story, but I started buying in late 2013, which was the then peak, and I had a 6 month plan that caused me to continue to buy BTC on a weekly basis all the way down during the first half of 2014, and then I extended my buying plan for another 6 months which caused me to continue to buy for the remainder of 2014, all the way down.   I can relate to buying on the way down, and it has paid off quite well for me, but it took me until about early 2016 before I started to feel on the border of profitability and my profitability did not really become unambiguous until late 2016.

Anyhow, if you are in the accumulation stage then it does not necessarily hurt to continue to buy, but if you are already selling or trading then you likely have advanced past the early accumulation stage and are in a bit of a more advanced stage (still accumulation, possibly?)  Taking profits in dollars has so far not been my practice, even though I do sell small amounts of BTC as the BTC price goes up, but I consider that to be a kind of insurance rather than taking profits.  Also, I can understand and imagine that at a certain point in my BTC balancing experiences, there are likely going to be some needs to start to take some of my profits in dollars, even though I don't currently perceive myself to be in such stage - even while getting close to 6 years of BTC buying, accumulating and HODLing experiences.

I bought before the peak in 2017 but its not huge amount of bitcoins,I am talking about 2018 where only time the prices reaches $9000 range which I got trapped into.

I am not trading to sell my holdings,I am just using 10% of my total btc holding to day trade just to increase the btc holdings at the ned of the day because I knew that btc is not going to stay at $10K or 20K it will surpass 50K sooner.

Well, yeah, if you have a reasonable hunch that bitcoin prices are going up, then you have to be careful regarding how much you trade or sell too early.

I sell about 1% for every 10% that the price goes up, which tends to allow me to buy back some of that, too.  Also, since my BTC stash is about 12x in profits, I don't mind shaving off a bit, even if the price never ends up going back down.   So, anyhow, as long as you are not selling too much in the event that the BTC price goes up, then I suppose your system might work to accumulate more BTC, perhaps.

The true irony would be Scotland leaving the UK "because independence" and then joining the EU.

That's what they would want. The majority voted to remain.

All the talk of Churchill, 'winning' and 'taking back control' has been English. The English have saddo delusions of prior glory. Scotland wants to be small and prosperous. They've consistently aligned themselves more with Scandinavia.

Scotland has always been more intrinsically European. They actually like French people for starters.

This model allows us to make broad predictions concerning the long-term future price of bitcoin, e.g.
the price will reach $100 000 per bitcoin no earlier than 2021 and no later than 2028. After 2028, the price will never drop below $100 000.
the price will reach $1 000 000 per bitcoin no earlier than 2028 and no later than 2037. After 2037, the price will never drop below $1 000 000.

Just do the math: 18 million BTC already mined, 85% of 21 million ever to exist + Halving next May (supply decrease)+ fast-growing development and adoption (demand increase) + accelerated global debasing of fiat money = Huh?

Scotland has always been more intrinsically European. They actually like French people for starters.

This is typical of the Scots. They get everybloodything arse-about-face. French people are much better served for pudding than for starters, although they need a lot of cream and sugar to go with, as they are a dry and bitter bunch.

It must be depressing to be a conservative.  In the long run, you always lose the culture wars:

It must be exhausting to be constantly on the wrong side of history

You are beginning to show signs of cottoning on, so partial congrats.
It is indeed quite exhausting and sometimes depressing keeping standards up, fighting for calm, common sense and decency, batting away immature boundary-testers with our innovative blue-died water, our cunning fire-setting in the jungle and our nods to your 'diversity' in the very House of Commons.
While I am delighted you seem to think these seeming gains for socialism counter the deals we make behind the scenes which actually run the world, I am saddened that you show no signs of knowing how long the long run is. I demand a more far-thinking opponent.

Still in the triangle. If this breaks out upwards, this is going to play out exactly like anon predicted. $16k in October.

Big 200/350D MA Golden cross is supporting this too. You can't get more bullish than this.

Good news is, it looks like there will be another month (maybe 2 at best) to collect cheap coins. Possibly our last chance. Consolidation is happening around here. Anything you buy from here may return you x6-x10 profits in a year.

BAKKT will be the trigger probably.

I was also thinkin about Torque's post.

Those wondering about the impact of BAKKT on the market, needs to realize something else.
It's not the fact that they are going live within days. It's completely the relative timing.
They could have gone live over a year ago. The tech was already in place and working behind closed doors.
But they didn't. They delayed it.
So ask yourself: Why go live now? Why not a year ago? Or why not kick the can for another year?

Either Anon knew BAKKT was going to launch on Sept 23 (less likely), or the BAKKT officers put the launch date on September, purposefully just to amplify the gains. Right before the big parabolic move.

@mindrust - You’re turning me on!
This kind of post should be X rated. It’s giving me a sweat Grin

Descending Triangles will break to the downside 55% of the time with an average decline of 19%. This would pull us back to 7k ish, which is the phase 2 trend line from the uber bull of 2017.
Descending Triangles will fail to break to the downside 45% of the time. ( break to the upside ) with an average rise of 42% , which would bring us to 14 k ish.

Essentially with  Descending Triangles it is best to wait for the break either up or down. They are not particularly reliable until the break.

There is a great book called "Encyclopedia of Chart Patterns by Bulkowski " It might be out print? It is a great resource as it breaks down the odds of the 50 or so most reoccurring patterns.

I am ready for both scenarios.

There might be a correction to $8k but even if happens, I don't think It'll stay there for long before shooting back up.

%45 is still good odds.

Well, if the whole thing wasn't political to begin with, anyway.

This. The reason I immediately drop out like a WO-er on a BCASh post whenever I hear millennial speak about saving the environment. The people genuinely debating this topic in a scientific non-politically loaded/virtual signalling manner are 1 to a million.

Ok, perhaps tuning out of BCASh things even sooner. I confess  Grin

He’s had a history of drug abuse over the years I believe so maybe it’s connected to that, heart attack or something. I know he’s a bit of a figure of fun here but I wish him the best. It’s not good karma to mock people who are ill etc.
