I'm waiting for a good buying opportunity with an eye to storing my BTC in a wallet and holding for the medium or long-term. What do you think? Opinions-- for or against-- welcome.
Bitcoin 5200 and no comments?!?

Wait for spike up then down.

Buy 1/3 now.
1/3 low about 5000
1/3 if spike down

{quote} No, I haven't commented here because I've been watching this trade develop. My TA wasn't lining up with how the PA was developing, and I was also looking at order-flow for clues to get short. I'm short a little-bit now, and this is how I'm scaled so far{image}...
good luck to you. the Top at $6250 ( wave 5- Elliott)

Elliott Wave:
*wave III extension=> the length of wave V= 161.8% X the length of wave I = 161.8% X 2005 points = 3244 points => the top wave V at $6210.
**wave V extension=>the length of wave 1 through wave 3 = 61.8% X the length of wave 5=> the length of wave 5 = 2347 points.
=>the top wave 5 at $6500.
(*)+(**)=> The top wave V: $6200->$6500.
Note: a) the length of wave I = 2005 points
b) the length of wave 1 through wave 3= 1451 points.
After Bitcoin reaches the peak. Next year 2018, correction will be made by wave A, B, C.
the length of wave A = 38.2% the length of wave I through wave V => Bottom A at $4200
the length of wave C = 161.8% or 261.8% the length of wave A => Bottom C: target 1 at $2960, target 2: $970-$1000

Once a man appeared in a village and announced that he wanted to monkeys for $10 each. The villagers, realizing that there was no dearth of monkeys in the nearby forest, went out and started catching them(mining). The man bought thousands of monkeys at $10(bitcoin@1$). As supply started to fall down(mining difficulty) , the villagers stopped catching more monkeys.

Now the man further announced that he would now buy monkeys at $20 each(bitcoin@50$). This renewed the efforts of the villagers and they started catching monkeys again. As the supply diminished even further, people once again stopped catching monkeys and started going back to their farms.
The man further increased the rate to $25(bitcoin@200$). Soon the supply of monkeys became so little that it was quite an effort to even get a glimpse of a monkey, let alone catch it!

The man now announced that he would buy monkeys at $50(bitcoin@1000$-5000$). However, since he had to go to the city on some business, his assistant would now buy on behalf of him.

In the absence of the man, the assistant said to the villagers: “Look at all these monkeys in the big cage that the man has collected. I will sell them to you at $35 (NOW WE ARE AT THIS POINT )each and when the man returns from the city, you can sell them to him for $50(WE READ NEWS THAT BITCOIN WILL REACH 10000-100000$).”

The villagers squeezed up with all their savings (POOR DUCTHMAN)and bought all the monkeys. But they never ever saw the man or his assistant again in the village(demand dry out); only monkeys everywhere!

Let's see if Amazon starts accepting Bitcoin this month. I bet they will.

Crypto-currency obviously poses the largest threat to fiat currency and the central banking system. If I were a central bank, I'd be accumulating all the crypto I could by buying up all of the free supply. I'd have (incognito) bots on every exchange just buying non-stop-24/7. What's a little more printed money in the grand scheme, right? I would quietly sit on massive stock-piles of crypto until the adoption cycle hits the late majority. Next, I would create the biggest financial panic ever seen in crypto-trading by dumping supply and lifting every bid on a mad-dash to the bottom. I would then introduce my solution that "cannot be manipulated by malicious speculators"... and this is the future story of how fedcoin came to be.

halichthiep,

i recommend that you rethink your Elliott count of post #5286.
Wave III is the shortest wave of your impulse count. Wave IV and I are overlapped ....

Check the Balan book too:

Edit:
Here is an early attempt from "EWMInteractive" to count wave (V) starting 2016.

I brought up this count from june so that an Elliottician can update it based on the actual prices.

Edit:
Check a later one from mid sept 17.
Did at the low of mid sept. start the next (sub) impulse wave ?

In this story there was unlimited supply of monkeys, a single buyer and a bunch of stupid sellers (they went to the forest fo $10 monkeys and did not want to do this for $50 monkeys).
In reality there is a limited supply of bitcoins ~17 mln. today, indefinite number of buyers and sellers with IQ ranging from 20 to 150.
So I do not think that your story is related to Bitcoin.

P. S. I keep hearing that Bitcoin is not worth its today's price and will fall in the nearest since ~30 BTC/USD.

priceaction1 Oct 15, 2017 4:11am | Post# 5296

ok some questions for all high IQ >120. Bitcoin persons.
1.What is blockchain?
2. did bitcoin is only the blockchain exist or one can create same or more efficient blockchain system?
3 why big players use bitcoin blockchain when they have other options available to them?
more to come.

Think of a block-chain as a continuous ledger of transactions, and all confirmed transactions get appended to this ledger in groups of other transactions (blocks). Bitcoin is the OG of crypto-currencies so it is treated like digital gold (a store of wealth) and it has the highest market capitalization simply because it has the highest market share. BTC makes for a shitty currency due to it's slow confirmation times, and because of that we're seeing a lot of different software forks of the existing bitcoin block-chain due to political disagreements in how a more efficient block-chain should be implemented. Block-chain forks are like stock splits because holders own the original bitcoin and get issued free 1:1 alt-coin after the fork, and the demand from buyers rushing in for free alt-coin is fueling a massive speculative bubble.

I saw it as a limited, finite supply of monkeys - exhaustion of supply - an artificial run up in prices - classic pump and dump

How much did you short? Must be a huge short opportunity then. You can short and hold until bubble pops and you make great money.

I think that's how I'm going to play it from now... no longer letting longs run and instead reverse them at D=C+(B-A) with close to break-even stops after a bit of breathing room.
