Default Glad I sold at $1150ish...

I didn't have much but what was left was liquidated at around $1150ish!

I got out before the 25% price crash...

Of course I'm buying the dip and I'll hold until it reaches $1500 or so and I'll sell again.

why is it that so many traders love to claim they sold at the highest highs. no one ever claims they ate the crash. it's like you have a crystal ball

eh, i knew the rally blew past $1k, but before i even checked coinbase, i knew the peak would miraculously be mere dollars away from the claim you make. forgive my cynicism but that's typical shill behavior.

One of my last trades:



My mistake, it was at: $1140

Previous trades were not that high.

The reason I started this thread was this section of the forum needed some activity. I'm not here to brag about one of my lucky BTC trades.. I just posted to post. No need to be a downer unkown5454.

I'd be careful before buying more on a dip, last time bitcoin hit $1000 in 2013, it headed into a downward trend for a long time. Have to look at the momentum of Chinese buyers and any new regulations the Chinese government will have.

I check it daily.

Not going to be out of touch if I can avoid it.

Not my money in the first place.

I rather enjoy watching its value increase.

It's nice that you made some money on this price increase... I did too. Last time the price was up around this high in 2013 I lost 40K in potential profit... sold 40 coins @ $200... about two weeks later it was $1200 a coin. :(

I once bought at 951, and sold at 951.50. Just wanted to point that out. I made like .50 cents but lost on the transaction fee. Now back to my regular trolling other threads.

I hate BTC, I really do.

Why? Because I almost invested 7000 into BTC when it was 3.10 back in the day, just before that first hypetrain.

Every time I read about it, I just get sad and then I need to do something quickly because its the ultimate "what if" of my life so far.

I decided not to invest, because I was just afraid that people were going to laugh at me, because everybody who I knew, knew nothing about it and it felt like if I got it wrong, it would have been one of those "what if" negative moments of my life.

You read all sorts of stories online about people paying 10k BTC for a pizza and some stories about a guy who was looking for his HD in a landfill because it had some BTC on it, but this is my BTC story... And I hate it.

@Bhutaybori

Haidukken makes an interesting point. He didn't quite invest when they were at their trough (@3.10/btc) but investing now is a huge risk.

The value is at its peak - IMO its never wise to invest in something at its peak.

I imagine this thread popping back up a year from now and BTC being over 2k easily...

Let's see..

No way to know if this is actually the peak though.
Many thought the peak was around $1000 and were proved wrong.

Dont feel bad or sorry for yourself. Do you know how much volatility this thing has. I would never in my mind invest into something like this.
Invest in things that will improve your life and not things that will cause sleepless night.

Or why not invest in a ASIC machine so that you can mine these coins. Some people do it and they get a very small profit per day, around $10-30 after power costs. They dont have to heat their house so it also saves on heat costs.
