I wonder, are the majority of people trading bitcoins represented on this board?

Have you ever been influenced on a trading decision by posts on this forum?
I have, numerous times.

Do you trust your fellow speculators? How much do you think is deception where people suggest a different action and take another?

First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they keep laughing, then they start choking on their laughter, and then they go and catch their breath. Then they start laughing even more.

Yeah, this subforum is the largest collection of speculation anti-indicators. So I use it a lot. Smiley

The Speculation sub-forum is the best way to know when to strike when the iron is HOT and emotions are HIGH. Smiley

Q1: I wonder, are the majority of people trading bitcoins represented on this board?

Q2: Have you ever been influenced on a trading decision by posts on this forum?
I have, numerous times.

Q3: Do you trust your fellow speculators?
Q4: How much do you think is deception where people suggest a different action and take another?
A1: Beats me. Why would it matter?
A2: Never. The very idea is ludicrous.
A3: Trust should never enter into a trading decision. If you need it, you are too weak to play.
A4: Never attribute to malice that which can be adequately explained by ignorance.

“There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old's life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”

There's no way I would have been able to grab as much money as I have without the speculation forum.

I read the stuff posted here. Please tell me in detail what I'm missing. Show your work.

It's the power of the crowd.  If 75% of investors believe the price is going up, and buy accordingly, then it becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy.

I never was much of a trader, and have not exchanged USD/BTC since around $2.35, but...

This subforum was one of the ones I read most often.  I'm almost certain that some of the material I absorbed from this source factored into some of my decisions about when to make purchases.

In some cases it was a negative association.  For instance, when I saw Proudhon getting vocal about how BTC was going to zero, that probably induced me to go ahead and pick up another hundred or so Smiley  I'm sure that he was practicing reverse psychology and pocketed a lot of my USD however.  All I can say is thanks to him...I collected many more BTC in the $2.?? range than I ever thought I would be holding even as a total.
