I sold 33%
Will buy back between 250 and 320 USD.
If we do not reach that exchange rate, I will buy back at 410 USD

Hodled 100%, drank a glass of good mead, and still felt as sure as ever that the value (if not the price) of a bitcoin is well over ATH Smiley

Need to add another value for the "didn't do anything/couldn't do anything" segment.

You say "anti government" like that's a bad thing...

I'm not sure I can believe that losing > 20% value in a day is "stress free" but whatever works for you. I would find long term holding 100% of the time extremely stressful

The market price is irrelevant if you believe Bitcoin will realise its long-term potential, and you did not invest more that you can afford to lose.
And it did not lose 20% value in a day, the price dropped 20%, that is quite different! It still is the superior currency.

The panic selling has already happened. Most of the new users have already sold; the only ones left appear to be the long term holders and the day traders.

The resistance is all day traders speculating on a bottom but the external interest just isn't there with any force. The old money is draining out of the market faster than the new money coming in... This is going to get ugly until the market is saturated with liquidity and a huge portion of the total coins can be purchased.

black friday was named because it was the first day most retailers went into the black (positive net income). i don't think most btc holders are going into the black today...

I ignored it and did nothing.

Not even sure what the big deal is. We had a bigger crash than this the first time China banned Bitcoin.
