I wonder when the longs are going to close their positions when/if the price goes up. I mean, they'll most likely open up new longs, won't they? Will they even wait for the bubble to pop? Who knows...

If you are referring to risk, everyone takes risk.

Its just a matter of how to manage that risk or have a net to make up for it if its a loss. But, if you dont have a plan, youre more likely to fail a lot harder, which you see all the time not just bitcoin but everyday stuff as well.

How are the longs/shorts looking after the dumpfest today? Any insight and speculation from you guys around here? Didn't seem to cascade that badly, still. Scary.

Shorts @ new ATH.

The price could crash much lower easily as whoever has pushed us down could wipe out the entire visible bid side easily. That said with shorts at ATH one or two big buys could instantly squeeze the shorts.

Toss a coin.

I think the move under 200 in the next couple of days will be violent.

btc swaps took a plunge:



I closed my short at a small loss, I suppose others did the same, being nervous about the BTC-E crazy pump.
Longs still in a similar position to August 2014, after short closing won't support current price anymore, I hope for a nice long squeeze.

Sometimes, if it looks too bullish, it's actually bearish

Given shorts were 5k above the previous all time high, and historically are still very high at 26000, why exactly are you erroneously suggesting that short closing won't support the price?

Any further buying will encourage more shorts to cover.

You think it is a coincidence the price is up from 215 to 240 whilst we shed some of the overhang of shorts?

I guess most shorters/bears realized that thing just may be different this time around and it is safer to just close your position and wait for the market to decide. This is the first time, squishy went green again before we've seen a new long-term low. I really wouldn't want to short at this point. And many bears apparently don't want to, either!

I agree, bears seem to get cautious now. If the market is undecided which way to go, it's your best bet to wait until it tilts to one side and then place your bets. If it isn't a bear-/bull-trap, you're most safe this way Cheesy

At no time in the recent past did we see bears thinking twice about their moves and/or s(ing)tfu about it while staying quiet and seeing what happens prior to now. Troll extraordinaires have subsided unlike any other times in the past which means something is brewing.

I think regardless of which way it goes, it should also be something to ask yourself about the technology behind it.

Which often people forget about, and that its a huge change in the financial game. Its going to be used for something, the direction of bitcoin is been deciding from day to day use, commodity, or other acceptable ventures.
