Interpretation error, ok with the new poll, I was suggesting another type of poll.

No problem, the one you think is more convenient for the occasion.

Observing volume on the daily chart (Bitstamp) and it is happening for the third month in a row that volume increased drastically towards the end of the month. Any idea why is that?

Today bakkt has a record volume 2120BTC+. Congrats to all who bought bitcoins today! Several hundred thousands were traded on the major exchanges, probably way more on all exchanges worldwide, ATM's, etc. Woe to those who sold! The next bull run is about to start!

hahahahaha

You seem to have some correct in you from time to time, lambie bambie.

When there are posts about extravagances, then that seems to be an opposite behavior to HODL and accumulate... especially when the BTC prices are dipping.

Seems that we might need more McDonalds posts and possible ways of frugality during these kinds of trying times.

If you have a substantial stash of coin, retired off it, need income but are loath to sell at these prices, consider earning weekly interest on a portion of holdings through Celsius.  It's way better than selling.  
... Then again, by lending, am I providing the central bankers a means to drive the price down I wonder?

I don't rest understand these aspects of market mechanics.

A lot of people get distracted and lured into interest bearing products because they believe that the return on BTC is not good enough for them. Seems too risky to me, and also seems unnecessary, but if you want to trust your coins with third parties, then so be it.  That's your choice.

Many times people who borrow BTC are actually dumping those BTC so yes, there is that aspect to it, on a more macro level.

I lend a portion of my btc Stash for weekly interest payments because I have no regular income investments at all, it's in btc mostly, and a bit in managed investments.  Being retired, I need income, and btc lending is the most obvious source to put it to work.

I will never sell my btc Stash at below ath prices if I can live off interest, as a matter of principle.  But is it really more principled and better for btc to lend instead of sell?

I figure if central bankers are borrowing mine and others btc through middlemen like celsius.network to dump it, assuming they have infinite Fiat to play with, the price will go down as long as people are willing to lend.  But if deep pocket buyers ever buy more than what's available to lend, the price has to shoot up like fireworks when they cover their shorts by actually buying.

Increasing volatility will not be good for growing adoption, yet isn't it better to lend than to sell?

If I had a do over I would have sold off half my holdings earlier, but it's so easy to get greedy.

Wow, what a ride, $6785 bottom today!   Its like that moment you'd lose your breath on a rollercoster dive,  love it and hate it, want it to end but still want more.  
Feels good to be alive.  Front row seats in the worlds most exciting market.  

Fully expecting a game of chicken with the long term trend line soon and maybe even a spot below for awhile, get ready.

I see some people bought a little early and missed the deeper dip, and are now a little grumpy, angry and frustrated.

I did even worse. Bought one whole coin @ $8300 about a month ago.

I felt angry and frustrated too. And then I checked my TREZOR, viewed my balance and calculated how many times I've multiplied my total investment. My anger and frustration was instantly cured.

Going for a beer now, happy as can be. Let the fucker drop... I don't care. In a year or two from now we'll all be laughing... And the joke will be on those that sold...and those that waited to buy but never did...

This is fine.

Bridgewater putting on $1.5B option trade betting on market decline by March 2020.

https://www.wsj.com/articles/bridgewater-bets-big-on-market-drop-11574418601?redirect=amp#click=https://t.co/xyiKN6jA3v

There is a paywall on that article, so I am posting another link here:

Bridgewater bets more than 1 billion on global equity pullback by March

The key takeaway is the following:

Quote
Bridgewater paid roughly $1.5 billion for the options contracts, or just about 1% of the Westport, Conn., firm’s $150 billion in assets under management, according to people familiar with the matter.

This means they bought a lottery ticket, paying 1.5 Billion, to hedge their long exposure of 150 Billions with a short one of around 100 billion (this is something I read elsewhere behind other paywalls, so you have to trust me).  This 100 billion short insurance will be effective at lower market level.
So, probably, it is only a way to avoid too heavy losses in case of a significant drop in the market.








It’s a good move.  If the market crashes they win.  If the market rallies they win.

If the market stays flat, they lose a small amount. But it seems unlikely to stay flat.

Yes, that's just hedging.
I would be much more interested in knowing what Universa is up to.
