their loss.... people acting like this is some epic crash and end of the world need to stop... they said the same thing a few weeks ago

 

 

It may rebound from this crash, but there will be a crash in the future without a rebound. In my opinion the graphs show a bubble. I think the prices for a couple of the major ones will be up slightly over the long term average, ie slightly over 1000 for bitcoin and maybe 1-2 hundred for eth.

 

I think the vast majority will end up being worthless in the long run.

 

 

My opinion is not based in any research, just a guess based on past bubbles like the housing bubble and tech crash.

The current crash is not even close to the last mini crash which felt more like a normal correction than a crash

All time highs?    Huh?

 

So...you buy  .25 Bitcoin at 10,345 on Tuesday, it goes to its all time high of 10,945 on Wednesday, you should have sold?  Or....you should have waited til it hit 19,340 because that was going to end up being the eventual all time high? 

 

 

Which one?
 

 

They'll have to wait it out, they'll be fine.  Or they will panic and sell.

 

:dunno:

 

That's how this thing works, nobody should be betting more than they can afford on this deal..

 

That should be a given.

 

We'll revisit in a few weeks.

FYI also..

 

https://www.coindesk...asdaq-exchange/

 


Reality Shares Advisors and Amplify Trust ETF launched the first blockchain-based exchange-traded funds (ETFs) on Nasdaq today.

 

Both funds went live on Nasdaq's exchange at 9:30 a.m. EST. Reality Shares' Nasdaq NextGen Economy ETF (BLCN) opened at $24.20, while Amplify's Transformational Data Sharing ETF (BLOK) started closer to $20.

 

Both ETFs will exclusively invest in blockchain-based companies, according to a previous CoinDesk article. When the prospectuses were first filed in November 2017, the companies noted that investing in blockchain startups could be risky, as there are few regulations on the technology and companies may not necessarily turn a profit.

 

However, the prospectuses also noted that the funds would only invest in companies with a market capitalization of greater than $200 million and which had a six-month daily trading average of at least $1 million.

 

 

Reality Shares has developed an index with Nasdaq to track blockchain startups which the ETF will utilize, said Kian Salehizadeh, an analyst with Reality Shares. Nasdaq's blockchain research team forms part of the index's contributors. The index is further supported by an algorithm developed by Reality Shares.

 

Salehizadeh continued:


 
 


"We wanted to do a blockchain technology-related ETF, so not another bitcoin fund but something that takes advantage of the underlying ecosystem. So we developed a methodology in-house which measures seven quantitative factors and we run those factors on a universe of publicly traded [data]."

 

He further told CoinDesk that the company's ETF originally contained the word "blockchain" in its name, but the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) had his company remove the term.

 

While the SEC has not formally issued an approval of the ETFs, the lack of a formal disapproval means the ETFs were automatically approved under current law, Salehizadeh explained. At present, the SEC has 75 days to issue a disapproval or objection to an ETF filing. If no such disapproval or objection is stated, the funds can be listed.

 

Companies have previously filed for blockchain-based ETFs, but none had made it as far as listing prior to Reality Shares and Amplify Trust. Most recently, Horizons ETFs Management filed for a blockchain ETF in November.

 

Amplify Trust ETF had not responded to a request for comment at press time.

Are you guys setting stop loss orders up on your altcoins? If not, I would. Unless you can monitor them 24/7. When they crash it only takes a few hours. Or the other alternative which is what I am doing, is staying away from them entirely.

I took a closer look at all the alt coins I had yesterday and did a little math.

On the whole, theyve fallen at close to the same rate as bitcoin this week. So I traded them all for bitcoin and am now again holding only BTC, ETH and LTC.

This is why I don't think you have a lot of experience at trading.

 

Those are NOT the only two options. 

If they were, trading would be easy.  And that's what so many people (so it seems) are implying.

If they held another election on November 9th, Trump would have lost the popular by 10 million and the electoral in a landslide. So many people didn't bother voting because the media was telling them Clinton was a lock by 10 points. And Trump's approval rating dropped from 47% to 37% just in the weeks between the election and inauguration.  Unless he can get someone to reign him in, I doubt he'll survive the four years, let alone any chance at being reelected.

I've played stocks since like 2001.  So they go down, you "wait" ...they might go down more.  So if they do...you "be patient"...and then they go down more...then....they never come back up.   That is one scenario.  

So as I keep yakking...."Its a buying opportunity" (I'm being sarcastic when I say it)....it might be.  Or it's an opportunity to lose more money. 

That's all I was getting at.  I've seen it.  Sat right in the middle of it.  Been a part of it. 

 

I've done it with oil stocks...and my opinion was ...."no way is the price of oil staying at $35...." and I bought more.  It went back up, luckily.  I just had a much stronger sense that it wasn't going to "stay low" or "go lower" than I do with cryptos.

I got a strongly suggestive tip on Medreleaf (MEDFF) a while back...when it was at $14.  I said "Meh...". I saw it go to $24.  I thought...boy...I'm a tard.  I saw it fall last Thursday or Friday to $16.  I ended up getting in, 1000 shares at $17.50 (Ameritrade).   Its at 19.50 today.  I have no exit strategy yet.  Probably wait for my tipster to tell me to sell. 

I'm anti-marijuana for the most part, but I'm pro-money.

I should sell and move on.  $2000 in a few days...buuuut...(and here is what focks people).....I would hate to miss out on it going to $24....$40...etc.

So I wait...and if it falls to $16.....Hmmm....its back to what I said above.  Waiting.  Patience.   Might hurt. Might help. Won't know til after the fact.  No different with cryptos.  I just have more confidence in marijuana or oil...as there is a product and a for-profit company behind what I am investing in.

When you look at stocks...and you start looking at the history...your eyes and brain will focus on the absolute low and the absolute high.    Get away from that. 

Its not likely you'd buy Bitcoin at $100 (I don't know the low...just a made up number) and sell at $19,000 (high).

Your goal should be to buy "at a low price" and sell "at a higher price"

 

And have an exit strategy and stick to it.  No exit strategy.....can  = this. (Happened to me)

Bought stock at $3.80.  Watched it go to $17.   Held.  Thinking...."Jeez...its gonna go to $20....$30....$40....sky is the limit!"

It fell to 14...I assumed...(cuz I watched it bounce up and down between 15 and 17 regularly.

 

I worried that if I sold...It would shoot up past 17...and I'd be left with regret.  

So I held...slipped some more.

Then more...etc...

Ended up selling at like $4.20.  

It was tough for me to sell at 14, when it was on its way down, as I had already did the math on my profits at 17.  And by god...I was hell bent on getting back there at least.

And held to long...

 

So....have an exit strategy.

To me, one of the signs of the best altcoins is their ability to bounce back hard off lows. LEND just proved that to me.

I dont think they are either I just know a lot of people are investing without reading the white paper therefore most cant answer the question is BTC, ETH or any other major already does that. If it does, that Altcoin is going to have trouble eventually.

You should try something that I use to do on Polo and I will probably start doing again.. move some coin into your lending account on Polo if you have one (probably around 10-12k of BTC of ETH. You can lending your coins for about 0.2-0.002 (the percent changes constantly) percent to people who are Margin trading. You can make 200+ daily doing absolutely nothing. The only risk you take is if you are loaned the coins and the market crashes as long as X person has his margin order up you can sell them.

And you can't sell before the big crash either as you loaned your coins out. Focking dumb.
