Economics and TA are similar in that people who don't know the discipline dismiss it as not a valid field. We would never do this with physics, chemistry or even social sciences like etymology or history. Jorge is making a common mistake. It's not more complicated or nefarious than that.

I'd rather not lump Economics with TA.

With that said - TA seems to be different than the fields you mentioned. I don't discount the value of TA, but I think it's being highly abused and improperly applied.

Physics/Chemistry have very comprehensive foundations in both theory and practice that while not perfect, allow for consistently accurate and precise predictions to be made by anyone that's "well-versed" in the field - whereas TA can have scores of experts in the field making analyses that are as noisy as the charts being interpreted. Even a subject like quantum physics that's frustratingly nebulous and hard to comprehend has razor sharp theory surrounding the "hows" the game if not perhaps the "whys" - predictable unpredictability.

History and etymology on the other hand don't have that predictive/empirical power - but that's fine, because it hasn't been the intention of these fields to have it. The beauty of fields like these is that they're great at distilling the noise of past events getting it all to coalesce into a big picture that tells us where we are at the moment and how we got here. I think TA is in this camp and the TA dismissals that occur are a result of trying to make it fit in with the other camp.

TA is not the friend that tells you "Bro, if you finish that whole bottle of whiskey tonight, you're going to need to go to the hospital...tonight.".

TA is the friend that's sitting next to you in the hospital the next day telling you "Well, you finished the first half by 10:00 P.M. and by midnight you were wearing your underwear on your head pretending to be Sam Fisher with an empty bottle of Jack. You can't handle your drank."

I think that you are giving him WAY TOO MUCH credit, if you are calling him the Noam Chomsky of Bitcoin - without getting too much into Noam Chomsky.  Chomsky has dabbled successfully in a large number of academic and political fields.

I would characterize Jorge's involvement in this bitcoin dialogue more like a rock star commenting on politics.  Sure the rock star is going to know some things about politics, but his/her opinion is NOT any better than the rest of the people - even though the rockstar gets a lot of credit and exposure b/c of his/her status as a rockstar.... even though s/he may be talking out of his/her ass about an opinion that is NOT much different from Joe Blow, off of the street.

So Jorge has been attempting to unfairly bring his rockstar status to this debate to add credibility to his bs... but it gets worse b/c some of the times, unlike a rock star, Jorge seems to be engaging in purposefully misleading approaches... it is NOT innocent opinions but deceptive portrayals... b/c it is pretty clearly that reasonable inferences from the evidence is that he knows better.


Chomski is a linguistics expert and a very good one. It's his dabbling that I have great qualms with. The danger with smart people is that we can reason better, but we can also rationalize better and there's fewer people to call us on our bullshit. I try to have a healthy respect for my own ability to rationalize. If I have an edge, that is it. An academic has tenure, and an author's incentive is to sell books and be influential. Self-awareness is a liability to them. I believe in incentives.

PS. OKCoin's response to that client question, right below it, apparently says that they have only one broker for their recharge code system, and his minimum is "1 W" (一万 = Yi wàn = one wan = 10,000); but they expect to have more brokers eventually.

您好,目前只有一个代理商,充值最小额度是一W,后续会增加小额代理,方便更多用户充值,感谢您对OK的支持
谢谢!


Tough on the little guy.  That actually makes me think we could be close to breaking out big to the upside.  If the big players can keep the 99% out, the market is going up.


More thinking on this.  The big players want to increase their BTC holdings at current prices before the next rally.  This would normally cause prices to increase due to a large volume of buys.  So they need another way to do it.

Steps taken by big players:

1) The big players block any rallies with sell walls and negative news releases.
2) The big players in China then force the smaller players to sell BTC with the recent China manipulation, such as shutting down anyone with less than $10K.  The smaller players panic and sell out their BTC to the big players at prices much better than what they'd have achieved without this manipulation.
3) Once this process is complete, the big players are ready for the next rally.  They replace the sell walls with buy walls, and replace the negative news with positive news.
4) To the moon.


Thank you, this made me laugh for the first time today.

To resume:

1. It is bullish to keep 99% of potential buyers out.
2. Big players will buy huge amounts of bitcoins, because they know, there will be nobody who could buy from them later at higher price.

Odd that we don't see you here all the times you guess wrong...

When did I guess wrong? That is my first prediction thread ever as far as I know...It's also the first time I've published my opinion online (GeekCipher).

Where have you been, Cipher? Nearly a month missing from your own "analysis" thread.

It's odd we don't see you here now that you were so incredibly far off the mark with your random price guesses. I'm sorry, I meant "math." That's what you claimed to use, right, when Arepo inquired about your prediction?
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=518871.msg5816338#msg5816338

I mean you assured us we'd only drop to $580 in March (maybe 550 at lowest), not $450 as we did. Your price acumen also led us to believe we'd see $694 on 4/16 -- why are we at $480? At nearly $220 off the mark that means you're wrong by roughly 45%! Eekgads, man. I guess it's back to peddling software codes and other fishy Bitcoin enterprises...

Here is the post I originally wrote to you but did not submit because I wanted to give you some rope... Enjoy! (imagine this post starts with you asking, "When did I guess wrong?")

-----
You haven't given it enough time yet. You understand humans don't know the future, right? Being correct once or twice or even 3 times about a future event doesn't mean you know anything more about the future than my 3-year old niece or my pet dog. It may make you observant. It may make you fortunate. It doesn't make you future gnostic. Fortunately for your efforts humans are superstitious.

You made the prediction a day ago. I think most people here are assuming it looked like there would be a drop of up to $20-$100 and then believe it'll rise. You didn't exactly go out on a limb. But of course the first thing you do on the drop, to gain trust, is jump into a thread you do not participate in and declare your genius to the world. Your post history has nearly ZERO price prediction before yesterday.

Look, whatever scam you're up to just hasn't played out yet. You're involved in every scammy/scummy Bitcoin enterprise in existence. It is leading to only one end, and that is you running with other people's BTC without them receiving whatever you promised. The community doesn't need any more of YOU.

Seriously, you're selling gift cards, used electronics (oh, by the way you declared you're starting a "bitcoin museum" and are looking for stuff "super cheap"), video game codes, ASIC hosting (how generous of you), hashing power payouts, prognostication services (preparing to sell this, or just driving people to your awesome WP site?), buying used Casascius coins "for fun", etc. You are a walking scam waiting to explode.

You're in the "gaining trust" phase either for a bigger event or waiting to see which smaller scam offers quickest/biggest returns, have likely scammed others in the past (or perhaps you're a young gamer and burgeoning thief?), and are ready to move into the phase where you either start taking payments for pyramids, fortune telling services or start selling more expensive stuff that never arrives.

Or perhaps how long until folks realize their "hosted" machines are supplying the "hashing power" you're selling? You posted in January 2014: "I absolutely LOVE your setup! now to find a datacenter to host some of my miners.." Yet you now offer hosting services yourself? What are you, a Joe Blow reseller who has magically found a way to make ROI on miner hosting? You're probably running a bunch of smaller varying scam setups waiting to see which one begins to pay out the most more quickly.

But you should thank me for this post. Something like it gets posted in the lifetime of every scammer. Unfortunately it causes the dumbest humans to defend you because it does actually appear you haven't scammed anyone yet or haven't been caught. Congrats on that. We wouldn't want to jump to any conclusions about you. So for now, everyone can pile on me and tell me what a terrible human I am. I mean, you're just an entrepreneur, trying to make a buck, right?

sorry, no info on that so far.
there's a link on tribeca site to http://gowatchit.com/ , hopefully you can watch it there after the premiere.
i'm sure it won't happen but i'd love to see them doing a similar release model like the piratebay-documentary (http://watch.tpbafk.tv/).
Free stream & torrent with donations option and a DVD with more footage & interviews.
it would be a good possibility to show off new distribution models.

I just do not see a difference between March and now. We tested the high range of the trendline then we corrected. In March, there just was not enough fiat to keep the market up and we drifted down. News/snooze - there simply was not enough fiat coming in to the keep the market up. Now with Chinese regulations tightening, the squeeze has made it more difficult for fresh fiat to come in.

IF WE DO NOT RECOVER TO NEW HIGHS IN THE NEXT 10 days, then we are going down folks. We are going back down to retest 340.  It might take 2 months and it might be boring as hell, but the market is still in a bear market as of now and it has shown the inability to sustain prices at these levels. These are just the facts jack as they are today.

If we can get over $545 sometime in April, then thats another story altogether. But right now, I just see a slow drip drip drip down.

Everybody is looking for more upside after this correction. We tested the 50% Fib. Only the 68% is left. We are now on the clock to make an up move. And we need VOLUME to do it.

Shorts are at a very low level right now. Most margin is long.

My money is on the intermediate term bear.

Shorts are at a very low level right now. Most margin is long.

My money is on the intermediate term bear.

Let me start off by saying I agree with you, not just in sentiment but in position. Having said that, it might be helpful to explore reasons why we could be wrong.

1) Weather. Spring weather historically provides a psychological lift to the markets, especially after a long cold winter and a rough bear market.
2) US tax returns. Many people have or will shortly have some disposable income.
3) China. Although the Middle Kingdom is my chief concern right now, much of the bad news so far has been priced in.
4) Although there is not any evidence of significant amounts of fiat entering the exchanges, there is not yet much evidence of fiat leaving the exchanges either. People who sold ~$550 could be looking to rebuy lower.
5) We don't need additional demand if supply runs out for some reason. Several scenarios are possible, although none of them are likely.
6) Prices are still below the cost of production. Well-funded miners should be buying.
