'Satoshi' selling $8bn of BTC


Recommended Posts

It's the tweets that I find the most illuminating rather than the article, the talk, the guy himself (I mean who cares right?).  The tweets are indicative of a a kind of cultism seemingly common among devotes of the high priest Bitcoin and the many other lesser priests and priestesses.  Rain down fire and brimstone on all ye who decry the great crypto revolution.  In fact the tweeter described crypto as a "insurgent or subversive movement", not exactly the kind of talk you'd expect from something seeking to be a credible replacement for my grans cash.  Claiming the FT are trolls is laughable, regardless of your opinion of MSM.  It all smacks of a deep-seated sense of insecurity that is consistent among the frat house of crypto devotees, all dreaming of becoming true billionaires (in USD notably...).  This is consistent with the first internet bubble, which took over 10 years to mature before it all fell apart.  Then another almost 20 years of the current tech bubble (will it end the same way...?).  Most of the people who were dreaming of becoming internet millionaires (billionaires weren't yet really a thing then, that's inflation for you - and the widening gulf between super rich and everyone else) wound up with nothing.  The few who did sold out before the end.  I am betting it will be the same again because human nature is always human nature and while history may not actually repeat, the human behaviours do.

"Stablecoins"!  Interesting that.  It is often the case that the early adopters get killed and a new paradigm emerges from the wreckage.  This happened in the first internet bubble when the self appointed disruptors declared they would end big business by making everything free on the internet, while becoming millionaires.  They were not able to answer the obvious contradiction and most of them lost everything as big business took over.  The likes of Google and Amazon are now big business.  They run their operations as a normal listed company must.  They obey the rules (except for paying taxes, which will be addressed in due course as governments catch up).  They are mainstream now, that is the price of success and the payoff of course.  The obvious flaw in the crypto devotees argument is the constant citing of crypto valuation possibilities in USD (i.e. FIAT currency).  Yes in order to actually make money on this they have to sell and convert to the very thing they are claiming to be replacing.  In order to ascribe value to their crypto holding they have to refer to USD, because that is how it works.

The point I have been making consistently on this topic, that seems to drive the crypto devotees mental, is that I believe the crypto story will end the same way as the internet bubble.  The technology is very interesting, no question.  Governments and accountancy institutions (including my own) are studying it with a view to leveraging in into the mainstream (principally to address lack of visibility/accountability in accounting and to bring in paperless currency, FIAT currency - Stablecoin?).  To this end government will legislate private crypto out of existence and mainstream tech players will step in o pick up the pieces (enter Facebook...  I wonder when Google and Amazon will kick in...).  The providers of technology will do well as they will start to work for the governments of the world (probably via these big tech giants); it has already started.  The current crop of cryptos, as the article suggests, will become valueless.

Doubtless there is still a trading ride for those brave enough to take it on and I see upside in the crypto mania to come before the end.  For me the end of crypto will be a signal for the end of the wider bull frenzy but are we there yet?  Maybe but probably not yet.  I could see Bitcoin regaining its past highs, maybe making some ATH above or perhaps a double top before the players cash again and pull the rug out from under the frenzy buyers (again!).  That is a purely technical analysis perspective; obviously my fundamentals perspective is the exact opposite (hence I call this a mania, and the hype is exactly the same as that I experienced in 2000 - buyer beware!)

Bubbles and mania's should be embraced by investors and traders. They present a fantastic opportunity to maximise profit potential. 

 

 

Only to an extent.

Most people should only be actively investing (including SB/CFD) a small proportion of their savings.  Otherwise extreme highs and lows are very bad.

If they are so bad that the economy crashes, you will have social issues that damage your quality of life even if you are a Mr Moneybags.

We should always hope for a society that is plentiful for all and stable.

    • IBEX 35 (Spain)  Elliott Wave Analysis Trading Lounge Day Chart, IBEX 35 (Spain)  Elliott Wave Technical Analysis FUNCTION: Trend     MODE:impulsive STRUCTURE:red wave 5 POSITION: blue wave 3 DIRECTION NEXT LOWER DEGREES: blue wave 4 DETAILS:red wave 4 looking completed at 476. Now red wave 5 of 3 is in play. Wave Cancel invalid level: 4508       The IBEX 35 Elliott Wave analysis on the daily chart offers insights into the current market trend and its anticipated movements, employing the Elliott Wave theory. This analysis is designed to identify the prevailing trend, which is classified as impulsive. An impulsive trend signifies robust directional movements, characterized by significant price changes that follow the primary market direction.   The focal structure in this analysis is red wave 5, a critical component of the impulsive wave cycle. Within this larger wave structure, the market is positioned in blue wave 3, indicating an ongoing phase of strong market activity. Blue wave 3 is typically associated with substantial price movements and is a key part of the impulsive wave sequence.   Looking forward, the analysis suggests that blue wave 4 is the next direction for the lower degrees. This wave will come after the completion of blue wave 3 and generally involves a corrective phase where the market consolidates recent price movements before resuming the primary trend.   The details provided in the analysis highlight that red wave 4 appears to be completed at a specific price level of 4761. This completion indicates that the market is now in the phase of red wave 5 of blue wave 3, suggesting continued strong market activity as part of the broader impulsive wave structure.   A critical component of this analysis is the wave cancel invalid level, set at a particular price point of 4508. If the market price falls below this level, it would invalidate the current wave count, necessitating a reassessment of the Elliott Wave structure. This invalidation level is crucial for confirming the accuracy of the wave pattern and the projected market direction.   In summary, the IBEX 35 is currently in an impulsive trend on the daily chart, situated within the third wave of the red wave 5 sequence. The market has completed red wave 4 and is now progressing through red wave 5 of blue wave 3. Monitoring the invalidation level is essential to validate the current wave count and accurately predict future market movements.     IBEX 35 (Spain)  Elliott Wave Analysis Trading Lounge Weekly Chart,       IBEX 35 (Spain) Elliott Wave Technical Analysis   FUNCTION: Trend MODE:impulsive STRUCTURE: blue wave 3 POSITION:black wave 3 DIRECTION NEXT LOWER  DEGREES: blue wave DETAILS:blue wave 3 still is in play , after that blue wave 4 expected. Wave Cancel invalid level: 4508 The IBEX 35 Elliott Wave analysis on the weekly chart provides a detailed examination of the current trend using the Elliott Wave theory. This analysis identifies the prevailing trend as impulsive, indicating strong and consistent directional market movements. Impulsive trends are characterized by clear, sharp price movements that follow the primary market direction.   The primary structure under consideration is blue wave 3, which is part of a larger impulsive wave sequence. Within this context, the market is currently positioned in black wave 3. This wave represents a significant phase of the impulsive cycle, typically associated with substantial price advances and strong market activity.   Looking ahead, the analysis suggests that blue wave 4 is the next expected movement in the lower degrees of the wave structure. Blue wave 4 usually follows the completion of blue wave 3 and involves a corrective phase where the market consolidates recent gains before continuing the primary trend.   The details provided in the analysis emphasize that blue wave 3 is still actively unfolding, indicating ongoing strong market movements. Once blue wave 3 completes, the market is anticipated to enter blue wave 4, which will involve a period of correction and consolidation.   A crucial aspect of this analysis is the wave cancel invalid level, set at 4508. This level serves as a critical threshold; if the market price drops below this point, it would invalidate the current wave count. This invalidation necessitates a reassessment of the wave structure and the market's projected direction. Monitoring this level is essential to confirm the validity of the wave pattern and ensure accurate market predictions.   In summary, the IBEX 35 is currently in an impulsive trend on the weekly chart, situated within the third wave of blue wave 3. The market is expected to continue through blue wave 3 before transitioning to blue wave 4, a corrective phase. Keeping an eye on the invalidation level is crucial to validate the current wave count and ensure the accuracy of future market forecasts.   Technical Analyst : Malik Awais Source : Tradinglounge.com get trial here!  
    • One idea is to create a personalized gift, like a custom piece of jewelry with a meaningful date or symbol. This shows thoughtfulness without being too extravagant. Another option is to plan a special outing or experience together, such as a day trip to a nearby town. You could also consider her interests, like maybe a book by her favorite author, a subscription box related to a hobby, or a spa gift certificate.
