  1. So the profits I made and went to my bank account, covered ny debts and allwed me a nice saving is bad because it's USD based. Interesting. We are on a forum where Ripple sells XRP Crypto to finance their operation. Talking about increasing supply that keep sprices down for years now.
  2. I run when when prices retrace from high to low. I never add another dollar to it. It does not matter if I study it, love it or it smells good. The market is smarter than me. If I was greedy and did not sell I move out. It happend before and will happen to me again, but I will never add to a losing position.
  3. You should be happy. You were patient, and you got your reward. My returns are part of the reflection that I love equities. They do get overhyped sometimes, sometimes go below what I anticipate, but it is a game that (just like you said) that allows me to sleep at night. The only gold I look at is via the futures exchange, but it is leveraged, and while it provides capital efficiency, it is hard to hold long term. I am happy you have a way to get narrow spreads in the cash market. Maybe I should check it out.
  4. I am happy that you made a good return, and I don't want to rain on your parade. In those two years you held, stocks that are common knowledge went 4X,5X and 10X. This is not a single stock, rather a large group of stocks that experienced that. So there is always an opportunity cost. Further, gold is not a liquid commodity unless it's sold through a Futures contract as a speculative tool. Cash gold has a huge spread, and when you buy it, they add 200 Basis and the same on the sell while reduced. But, back to the main point. Most get into assets and then convince themselves it was
  5. The biggest fall of XRP fans is the opportunity cost. Not in terms of other coins that go stratospherically, rather other asset classes that are rocking. The last two years have been incredible for stock traders and still are. There are still many bargains and technologies that are adopting more customers through subscribers or have potential growth. One year ago, I posted I bought FB at 200, and someone said it's too high. Bought NIO at $7, now its $14. Moved some cash to BAT as a new currency at 20 cents, now it's 30. Do I think BAT is the next best thing? NO clue, but its traction, i
  6. You seem to go against everything I say, so it is natural to conclude that you are on the opposite side. My real life is nothing like this forum behavior. Neither is yours. I have no doubt. I recently read a book by Jaron Lanier -Ten arguments for deleting your social media accounts right now. Quote: "Ordinary people are brought together in a setting in which the main-or often the only-reward that's available is attention. They can't reasonably expect to earn money, for instance. Ordinary users can gain only fake power and wealth, not real power or wealth. So mind gam
  7. Aplogies. You quoted me so I thought the refrence is to me.
  8. Merry Xmas. The stage is yours again for the anchor. "now it's A GREAT time time to buy....Fa-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la "
  9. People want to see an inevitable reality, and if someone stands in the way of this reality, they call it "FUD." It's convenient and easy to label someone when the mob is united in its opinion. Ripple does not have to pay anyone anymore, because the speculators of XRP are doing a good job bringing new money in with their posts and twits, or just making existing members dump additional money. Look at this article about ETH: https://www.coindesk.com/into-the-ether-90-of-all-eth-wallets-now-out-of-the-money This gives you a precise presentation of the behavior of speculators related to
  10. Paid? More delusional conspiracy theories? Feel free to show a quote related to $10 and context. As for as I remember, I begged people not to add to losing positions for over a year! If that is trolling, ok. I made a price prediction that any retruns that XRP will produce will be average at best. The $3+ run was a result of exchange manipulation, not the fundamentals of XRP. All Crypto was manipulated at the time. The first post ever on this forum was a request to diversify between coins.
  11. Do you collect her quotes and classify them by years?? Nice and highly organized.
  12. You let it all out? Venting? Feeling better for the holiday season? Bravo.
  13. Many of the KYC (Know Your Client) rules have changed since people started investing. You may have to answer a few additional questions to csh out (ones you did not expect).
  14. Rude. cheap shot. Quite often what we see in others, is what we see down deep inside in ourselves. "jerk" You are right, you are not a pychologist, neiter a trader that understands price. You derive your entire worth from "likes" and living on this forum...I gave you one ..child. Now you can have your ice cream.
  15. I am sorry I do not "live" on this forum...I have other businesses actually to run. And why am I a jerk? Another guy comes here with the "buy now" and other brilliant "If I did not sell, I am not a loser"...You are not tired of the same nonsense for years and years that led many people here down the road of broke!? No Sir, not a jerk. I am the one trying to save people their hard-earned capital telling them not to average down and stop buying. What is the alternative? Join the same old "$25 is coming?" sell hope? It's 18 cents!!! 95% of the people would have been better off not touc
