    Zerpening 3: HODL My Zerps

    Oh yeah absolutely. On the one hand I still think it was a fair plan. On the other hand I really wanna make sure I don't make the same mistake again. As long as everyone here understands I'm still a total noob at this and doesn't do something stupid like follow my plans! My core strategy is still to HODL XRP and BTC.

    Ah sorry I meant I bought today at 7600, targeting 8200, but sold at 7350. The other day, I bought at about 6900, sold at 7300ish.

    Got myself badly burned with the BTC bull trap earlier. I bought on breakout above 6600 just as I planned to do, ended up selling below what I had in mind as a stop loss at 7350, while I had a stop loss of 7450 in mind. Why? Because I was trading on my mobile phone while reception was cutting in and out. All in all, the perfect scenario for a balls up. I played exactly the same game on Tuesday with the breakout, and ended up doing well. Obviously a mistake, and I'm gonna analyse what went wrong. I'm on a Telegram group with other people who went on Tone Vays' seminar and I'm hearing some good advice from them about what went wrong. Turns out there's major resistance in the 7750-8000 range, which I didn't appreciate as I was focusing too much on what I though was a bull flag, whilst choosing to ignore one or two other indicators. Anyway, a bad experience, which I'm determined to learn more from. I hope none of you guys took my earlier posts about my plans too literally and got burned too. Got a lot to learn so back to TA school for me! And making fast trades on a mobile phone...definitely a no no!

    That's exactly what I've heard, and like you, I never understood it. I suppose you could argue that BTC is a lot less volatile than XRP.

    I make this about the 8th or 9th attempt to break overhead resistance for BTC in the last 48 hours or so.

    More like 7600, because it's broken to the high 7500's already. If it breaks 7600 with some conviction, it'll probably get to 8200ish.
  9. Can we blame her for the price going down?!

    I think it's good to just chill out and plan for certain scenarios. At the moment, stuff is BTC lead. Let's assume, like a lot of experienced traders are doing, that BTC hasn't actually bottomed yet, and this current BTC rally is temporary. When the rally ends, probably somewhere in the 8000-9000 range, we are unlikely to be much above 51c. A lot of people are talking about BTc reaching 5000ish. If that were to happen, we would almost certainly be in the 20-30c range. We actually have super strong support at 25c. If BTC retraces further, to, say, 3000, we are likely looking at an XRP price of about 10c. That's pretty hard to stomach, but if you mentally prepare yourself for it, you won't be stupidly shocked if it happens. I'm not planning on adding anything to my XRP stack until I feel BTC has hit a key support level, in the 3000-5000 area. That goes for all other alts too. Meanwhile, I'm gonna trade BTC. Amazingly, it's still in the 7400-7500 range. The longer it spends there, the more I'm gonna think it'll break up to the low 8000's. My next trade is likely gonna be to buy BTC if it breaks 7600 with conviction, then sell it when it hits 8200. There's literally no point trading or even buying XRP now til BTC has done it's thing (unless you don't mind being in the red and are just randomly adding to your XRP stack for HODLing purposes). That's my view anyway. SBC is a bit of a pipe dream and I'm not sure it'll make much difference in the middle of a bear market.

    From neck to head is 8c. Which makes the target 36c.

    I thought that last night and for most of today but the price action is changing my mind a little. It’s stubbornly staying high. I’ll play it safe. If it breaks convincingly above 7550 I’ll go to gdax and market buy BTC. It needs to get there though. Til that happens I’ll still expect it to get slapped down at 7500 and eventually go down to 6800-7100.

    Possible btc breakout coming?

    Mini dump starting again. I'd rather we get it done with and retrace to 6800-7100 then go again.
