still feel like your'e missing out?

Bitcoin is down more than 20% from today's intraday high in a plunge below $9000 from as high as $11,434.

When do you see any other market drop 20% in a day, right when there is a major crisis. Not for bitcoin, it happens on its own. imagine if there was a genuine crisis!

Buy the dip! Just kidding, I wouldn't touch this with my worst enemy d-hm- pole :-)

I do agree 100% with you, in the next market crisis this will be amazing to watch, because people will need money and there will be a lot of selling, can't imagine the plunge we are going to see...

Before you trade even single penny on the stock market, please spend the time and educate yourself by back testing different trading strategies and ideas - go to eBay and search for "historical stock market data", you can buy 20 years of data for less than $100 - that's all you need to start.

brewski1984 started this thread I bet people see this as an opportunity to buy a dip. I don't think you can apply any fundamental or technical analysis to Bitcoin right now.

20% here 20% there.......who cares, it's all relative
Bitcoin $15,000 next, then on to $20,000.
Crypto market cap still rising, so even though Bitcoin dropped a bit, overall we are still going up.

The futures will be a major downer for this...

Bubble bubble world of trouble

Bitcoin is entering the ďNew ParadigmĒ phase of a bubble. When Bitcoin started it was touted as a new currency, now itís a store of value better than gold according to the millennialís. Apparently some other crypto will be used as currency instead.

I heard about Bitcoin when it was worth less than $1 and yes I am kicking myself for not buying some at that price. Another bubble Iíve missed.

I thought nothing would trump the dotcom mania in my lifetime.

P.S: This is just more evidence of how much inflation the Central Bankers around the world have created. The crypto bubble, Art selling at record prices, Stock markets reaching record highs...If you arenít worried yet itís because you donít understand whatís going on.

Out of curiosity, do you think you've missed the bubble due to not getting in before the average joe or do you think it's now too high to buy/going to pop?

brewski1984 started this thread I have had a go on a demo account with Bitcoin, the spreads are quite wide and for obvious reasons there's no option for a guaranteed stop which I don't like. I also notice it says their market for it closes for the weekend but actual Bitcoin doesn't? Take into account overnight financing and it seems holding long term is not efficient?

Would a futures market stabilize prices or allow mug punters to margin up and cause more volatility? As I said the other day I noticed that every different site I checked for Bitcoin prices was different, would a futures market mean that all these sites would follow the one price?

Anger and confusion as crypto traders lose thousands in 'flash crash' on $US54 billion exchange
https://www.businessinsider.com.au/f...7-12?r=US&IR=T

A "flash crash" on the world's biggest cryptocurrency exchange has left customers demanding answers and refunds, with many claiming to have lost thousands of dollars.
The price of cryptocurrencies NEO, OMG, and ETP crashed as much as 90% in minutes on the Bitfinex exchange on Wednesday before quickly bouncing back to former levels.
