Bitcoin Cash - Surviving Market Corrections

BITFINEX:BCHUSD   Bitcoin Cash / Dollar
(Verbose post coming to Yours. org shortly (in my signature))

So, this is reality. Yes, crypto is a long-term big bull run that’s nowhere near global adoption levels. That is the truth. However, there’s a saying everyone has heard before:

"The market can stay irrational longer than you can stay solvent."

Time frame is what matters. Over the course of 2018, I’m sure we’ll see even greater parabolic growth in crypto. The question is, if markets correct, can you survive until then?

I survived the September and October bear markets. I didn’t trade it particularly well and took some pretty big hits to my positions and wealth and even though in the end everything is fine and I have quite solid gains for the year, the losses generated then cost me gains I can’t recover during this bull run.

Here’s a reality check for you if you’re one of the “lol it’s crypto noob markets correct noob” camp.

Price just went from $4,100 --> $1,600 in 2 days 6 hours.

We just experienced a substantially more violent correction than October panic was. This is not unique to Bitcoin Cash , as all markets suffered the same fate with the exception of a few outlier shitcoins.

What it does tell you though is that the bull run is over until proven otherwise.

This is a key premise that you must accept.

The fastest way to lose money trading is to be trading in the wrong direction.

This Idea is a longer-term idea and does not comprise a shorter-term trading strategy. I will be posting shorter-term trades while also updating this one.

I am not saying that this pattern will happen, but amidst major market correction, it is something you absolutely must be prepared for.

People have smugly forgotten or don't know what "buying the dip" is about when the trend is no longer up.

Unfortunately for Bitcoin Cash , until something fundamental diverges, it will correct as well as BTFee drags all markets with it.

Kommentar: Here we are after the daily candle closed. New update to Yours.org trading thread.

$2,800 is a key area that must be regained. Stay calm and stay patient. Things look recovering, but keep in mind they can be knocked down with great ease.
Kommentar: Update to Yours.org long-term trade thread.

We're now sitting at a key moment where we have to monitor price action and decide what to do with core position.

More bull run, or bull trap before monster dump?

Always so hard to say, especially with crypto.
Kommentar: New update to Yours.org trade thread. We're at a key level.

Right now I feel optimistic, but let's see how the day plays out.
Kommentar: New update to Yours.org trade post. Our friend Bitcoin Legacy has started a dump again.

It's a bit of a conundrum because of the price action on the BCHBTC pair at the moment. I'll let you make a decision how to handle it.

If you need to sell to pay expenses for the new year, now is the safe time. If you have strong hands, there may be better times.
Kommentar: This is pretty much the situation

It's very difficult, but try not to make decisions on shorter time frames.

$2,500 is next area to look for bounce if no immediate bounce here.
Kommentar: New update to Yours.org trade thread.

Long story short, I don't like that price action at all and although I feel like I'm going to get faked out in the next 12-48 hours quite often, for the purposes of a balanced strategy I've decided to sell a very small portion of my core position on this bounce.

That being said, keep in mind I bought most of my coins at $350 and am already effectively trading this position for free in 100% profits.

Your situation and entry point may be and likely is different.

Bitcoin Cash is the strongest coin on the market and will break Bitcoin Legacy, Litecoin, Ethereum, and Monero in 2018.

But, keep in mind bull runs cool and come to an end and it can and will take a few months for them to recover. In the absence of a Cashening or Dragonslaying scenario, Bitcoin Cash will follow the rest of the market down as whales steal everyone's money amidst panic and capitulation.
Kommentar: When I make the decision to sell a portion it is for a variety of reasons.

Frankly, if/when I can buy and pay for more things irl I will be considerably less inclined to sell. I am not particularly fiat heavy, for obvious reasons, so what do I do if market corrects to $1,400 over night and isn't getting back up for 2-3 months?

When i weigh all considerations both fundamental, technical, and personal, and make the decision to take profits, it's for an on-balance 51%+ settlement decision.

Because I've decided that's the way to handle it, and I can handle it at a reduced portion size, if it rocketships afterwards, well, I couldn't care less.

It will annoy me and I will feel angry for like 2 hours, but that is an okay cost for correct macro-level decision making, in my opinion.
Kommentar: Like I say in the Yours.org trading thead, you have to get the idea of buying the bottom and selling the top out of your head. It's not about that.

It's about eliminating risk, and especially eliminating risk of ruin.

They call it bull trap/complacency for a reason.

BCHBTC trading pair is the most notable, still looking like it's due for a break out.

We'll have to wait and see what happens, but nothing is looking all that bullish on USD pairs at the moment.
Kommentar: Ratio pair was just dumped hard.

BTC is going up.

Super short term though. We'll have to see what happens.
Kommentar: New update to Yours.org trade thread. Posted about a half hour ago but forgot to post here.

Multitasking and Christmas.
Kommentar: New update to trading thread. Looks like on the short term we're coming to an end of a triangle. Possibility we break upwards. We'll have to sit tight and see what happens.
Kommentar: New update to Yours.org trading post

Many bearish divergences right now indeed.
Kommentar: New update to Yours.org trade post.

Very choppy. Staying at $2,700 is it bullish, or bearish? It's very difficult to say.

Long-term focus advised.
Kommentar: New update to Yours.org trade post.

Difficult spot to trade. BTC looks like it's mooning and is going to continue to moon.

$2,500 USD is key spot to hold.
Kommentar: New update to Yours.org trade thread. BTC in the middle of a false break out and pullback, BCH looking less bullish and ratio pair looking less bullish.

Kommentar: No analysis to this comment.

Bitmex moved their Bitcoin Cash in the last hour or two.

Total sum is about 13,000 BCH. Xapo was 560,000 by comparison.
Kommentar: Markets have been dumped. Alts are too expensive. Be careful. Don't be afraid, but be careful.

We now trade below the 0.618 and it's becoming resistance. That is more bearish. The more time goes on like this the less that the trend is up and the more that the trend is down.

I took profits on this trade 3-4 days ago at $2,700 and haven't traded it at all since. However, I also haven't withdrawn that money. If price exceeds $3,000, I will. Otherwise I'm going to wait and see what happens. It's kind of like a margin self short.

Trading this is very difficult and choppy on short term time frames. BTC is not bullish, either.
Kommentar: New update to Yours.org trade post. The reality is that things aren't bullish. Across the entire market, Ripple is bullish and some alts are bullish and that's really it.

Keep in mind when it comes to BTC that the hysteria around "in a parabola the corrections become smaller and shorter xD" argument is indeed the truth.

That extreme parabola is also the end of a cycle, however. After accumulation comes distribution.

Bitcoin Cash has the best fundamentals on the entire market, period, but right now everything is vulnerable to what BTFee does.
Kommentar: Big breakout on the BCHBTC ratio pair

That's why BCHUSD pumped and BTCUSD didn't follow.

I don't believe there's any fundamental news to back this short of the triangle breakout.

But they just printed 100MM Tether 3 minutes ago, so...
Kommentar: Looks like our earlier breakout was merely a short squeeze. Things do not look good for either Bitcoin Core or Bitcoin Cash right now.

Please don't be deceived by Ripple. It was same nonsense with IOTA a few weeks ago.

Ripple, ZCash, and Bitcoin Core are the three core cryptos of Digital Currency Group, which are a group that Axa/Bildeberg funds that is alongside Blockstream.

Always keep that in mind when facing these situations. It's all one big play.

Trade wurde manuell geschlossen: This is a pretty bearish break.

Markets are no longer in an uptrend until proven otherwise.

Will have to do a new post as this one is old. Greed is how they get you to part with your money on the way up and fear is how they get you to part with your money on the way down.

Asia selloff vs PPT. Who will win? Fun drama.
And the plot thickens... are there any markets these slimy bilderberg shits don't have their hands in somehow?!

When LightingNetwork will appear in BTC, BCH will lose its main advantage in competing with bitcoin tand BCH will crash? What is your opinion?
Seems like we've been lulled into the return to normal with BTC. Cash in hand, I'm ready for fear. My only concern is how low is despair?
the retest of 13500 line seems different than prior BTC corrections, which were denoted by strong recurring capitulations without these strong intermediate undulations. Last night when Korea started to sell off there was an opportunity to break down strongly again. wonder if the PPT is in effect to draw a bottom at 13500.

I guess we saw our bull trap. Any guesses on how low it may go? Or better just wait it out a few days/weeks before buying back in?

@simpar19, what I read in the first graphic here
the price will drop till 1700.
Others professionals have the same target.
