It's fairly easy to push that "buy" button when feeling "festive".
Or think if "This was a brilliant investment earlier this year, I bet it's on the up again." might not be a fairly widely adopted strategy once peeps "feel" a bit too good.
On the other hand it might go over more like a hangover: "Never again!"
The problem is mainly with the hangover scenario, as to me at least trading is more addictive than crack cocaine
One problem is that purchasing BTC is a little bit addictive to me.
The other problem is that I have USD coming in bi-weekly, and simply want to be as low on any form of paper as possible at this time (and that certainly includes USD.)
I don't want to hold any more rental property than I have because I am of the belief that people who sit around collecting other people's rent checks will be loathed and mistaken for the 1% (often rightly so.) Even if such people avoid being strung up old school like, I am betting that various extra taxes and fees will eventually be imposed. And in fact I would like to see such a thing happen and believe that it is fair and the right thing for having a more fair society...but I don't hold that belief strongly enough to volunteer
Another option is PM's, but since that has been the only idea I've had for almost a decade now, I'm already heavier than I want to be here.
So, inevitably, every month or so acquiring 'just one more batch' of Bitcoin suddenly makes enough sense to me that I wander down to the bank and fill out the wire paperwork again. In spite of being very deeply in the red on it at this time. I actually really do feel a bit like a junkie every time I head down to the bank to do another wire.
