I sold some below 230 and sold my last coin around 250. Stupid, stupid me.

erm, me. @200. Shocked
Was quite thrilled tho, had reloaded for Seals @ 115-125/BTC back in July.
Drawback now is that it's less volatile [soon to to be less expensive] to play live poker 4 cash now.
So I'm back to freerolls only.
And I still have 260 chippies [0.26 BTC] @ Seals.
Which might be worth >230 by xmas. we'll see.

I'm sorry for you guys. I learned this lesson to never sell my coins long time ago and now if I have a feeling to sell coins I prefer to buy shares of sites that pop up everywhere and invest there instead of just selling. Now I'm just buying bitcoins when I can no matter the price.

Exactly that!  To be precise, I already bought some stuff for BTC (which is somewhat equal to selling), but I bought the coins back immediately.  I also sold some at MtGox to arbitrage a bit, but again only after buying them at Bitstamp.  (With a European bank account, I can actually receive withdrawals - slow and only small amounts, but it works and I don't have that much money anyway; mostly for fun.)

Most of my BTC (not that they are that many, but may still be worth something if it goes on like that) are in cold storage, though, so that I definitely don't get into the temptation to sell them anyway.  Just hold (most of the coins) in any case to be safe. Wink

Really Spider? That sucks! Have you bought any Bitcoins back when you saw the price was going to rise fast again?

$120 Was probably the worst moment in the last year to sell your Bitcoins ^^

I don't wanna talk about it. Wink I've been through worse shit in my life so I'm really happy just to be alive Smiley
p.s. 120$ is still decent amount of fiat. I won't be starving for a long time Wink

Hehe allright. It's fine as long as you ain't starving. Allthough, I guess you could live a bit more luxerious life if you sold them now at about $300 each. Karma is probably going to solve your bad choice!

For most folks, selling a little bit on the way up is a good plan, along with buying a little bit on the way down. I prefer the strategy of selling 1% of total BTC for every 5% rise in price from the last buy/sell, and buying 1% more BTC for every 10% decrease from the last buy/sell. It feeds the speculation urge, but doesn't cause one to lose sleep at night.

Haven't thought about such tactics. I guess I would go all-the-way untill I predict an huge incoming dump. Are there websites where you can use that strategy automatically? It does make sense. And I love my sleep.

Yes I'd also love to hear more about these strategies as I have full time job and cant constantly sit around trading coins.

I sold most of my btc at 190.  I kept on expecting a big drop in price. Yet, BTC looks stronger than it has ever been and then some.  I'm fearing that might not be able to buy back in without taking a loss.  I'm still surprised at just how stable it as at the price these days.

Now I'm in the slightly uncomfortable position of being a huge, huge fan of Bitcoin yet hoping desperately for a price crash because most my investments are suffering at this high price.

Now I'm in the slightly uncomfortable position of being a huge, huge fan of Bitcoin yet hoping desperately for a price crash because most my investments are suffering at this high price.

I know that feeling. I bought some coins at $86 in the SR brief crash. Then when the price went all the way up to $200 I thought, damn, this has been a fast rise, then it went down to around $175 and when it was in $182 I sold everything making a good profit. Then it started to rise more and, you know, someone always thinks sooner or later it has to go back down, but if I had hold now I could have a much better profit.

Now I think I'm going to buy when the price gets corrected and hold some months/years.

What have you guys learnt from having sell bellow 230?

I sold at 120$. Life will never be the same again.

I sold 500 or so for 119.99.  On the positive side I bought a fantastic car.  But yeah, I do look out the window and see that I need to add $200k to the price of the fucking car.

Yeah I've thought about cashing out to buy a nice car.. then I think about how fast the value of the cars drop, the running costs... and if I'd just held my BTC... so nope, I think I'll buy a $1k used banger and keep riding around in that sitting on my BTC.

I love bitcoins - everything about them.

I sold some below 230 and sold my last coin around 250. Stupid, stupid me.
Don't worry. There's pretty high chance for you to buy back at a price lower than 250. Exceptional fast increase always follows with a large correction.

This rise isn't anything on the order of the $32 or $266 rises. Yet. If this thing goes to $400 or $500+ in the next couple of weeks, then it could see less than $250 for a FEW MINUTES at some point in a flash crash.

Otherwise, barring really bad news resulting in a flash crash from current highs, I do not think we will see $250 again.

I bought mine at $15, (before the $32 bubble), literally forgot about bitcoin until I saw it back at $28 again, got excited, watched it go up to $40, and sold. And then rebought half of them at $90. Just WTF.

My only hope is to catch something like the $266 -> $60 fall again. That way I can quadruple my Bitcoin holdings and call it a wash.
