This morning, Bitcoin crashed violently yet again after a horrible day yesterday, reaching as low as $9k at the time of recording this and currently hovering around $10k. Looks like we have some heavy support at over 9k memes. In all seriousness, I bought some Bitcoin at $9.8k (which was rough because previously Bitcoin dipped to $9.9k then went back up to $12k in a few hours) and am ready to buy a lot more at $8.3k.

$8,000 seems to be a level that many technical analyst agree on, regardless of metric. Whether it's basic support and resistance, channel support and resistance, simple moving averages, Fibonacci retracements or Elliot wave analysis, everyone seems to hone in on this one level. Furthermore, media outlets are beginning to mention this level to so it has become somewhat of a "Trinity" level.
Given the fact that so many charts line up to this level, plus it's a nice psychological level, I suspect we'll find substantial support here and potentially a bounce. As a result, I will be investing heavily at this level if we reach it. As always, it is possible that Bitcoin declines even further past this level. However, I have more confidence here than anywhere else so I see it as a healthy "probability" bet.
If you're not calm right now, then it likely means you didn't scale your position in Bitcoin correctly - You have too much. Most newer investors have limited experience with understanding their own risk profiles, so this might be a good learning experience and I encourage you to take note so you can sleep better in the future.
Lastly, you know the drill already but... I prefer Bitcoin over altcoins and still suspect dominance to rise to 45 - 50%. Something I forgot to mention in the video is I am watching a few altcoins closely and am prepared to buy if they crash down to certain levels relative to Bitcoin.
What are your thoughts on this volatile market? For once we consolidated and broke out to the downside - been a while since we've seen that. Hope you're all having as much fun as I am!
If you like my content, you can support me through using ANY of the affiliate links below (I receive small compensation). The beauty of affiliate links is that I can pick and choose what I like rather than have companies approach me - everything I linked below (with the exception of Trezor since I like Ledger), I use myself frequently.
My Recommended Hardware Wallets:
If you want to store your cryptocurrencies safely, the best way is through a hardware wallet. Seriously - look it up and you'll find plenty of information supporting this claim. There are alternatives such as paper wallets, but these are convenient and my choice for cold storage (offline):
Ledger Nano S: http://amzn.to/2hZPj0q
Ledger Blue (expensive): http://amzn.to/2hk7xst
I personally prefer the Ledger Nano S, but the Trezor is such a close second that it really doesn't matter which one you go with. Ledger Blue is premium and convenient, but not necessary.
My Favorite Book for Investing in Crypto:
This book is, bar none, my favorite book for investing in cryptocurrencies. It doesn't bog you down with technical jargon, but instead focuses on all the elements you should understand before you invest.
It's a comprehensive book for both beginners and experts. Beginners will find information about major cryptocurrencies (not just Bitcoin) as well as details on historical market events (that you can draw on for future) and events to watch for moving into the future. Experts will find the chapters on valuation particularly useful. For those of you involved in traditional investing, this book is even more of a godsend as finance info is explored (correlations with other asset classes, ETFs, etc).
My Recommended Exchanges: Coinbase / GDAX / Bittrex
If you sign up to Coinbase using link above, you and I will both receive $10 each after you buy your first $100 of Bitcoin using Coinbase. Coinbase is much less intimidating for beginners. Once ready, move up to GDAX for cheaper or zero fees. For altcoins, I recommend Bittrex.
