Dips: The crypto poison

crypto-market-crash.jpg

Down it goes! Dev sell? You quickly start to ‘hate it here’. Your gains are being flushed down; you should have sold earlier. Your 500% gain is currently down to 300%. Well, funny but this is the typical feeling when the charts start to turn red. The paper hands grow weary and take profit…or stop loss. Whichever goes for them, leaving the ‘crashing’ market is the top priority.

Every cryptocurrency investor wants the chart to stay green and never red; at least, until they get to their target and sell off. Only few realize that the path to their target is filled with trials and tribulations. Now I said that the religious way, lol. If you’re wondering; I’m one of those investors who want the greens to prevail at all time. I mean, who doesn’t? well, only the guy waiting to ‘buy at a discount’

Nevertheless; dips are inevitable, regardless. The chart goes red whenever a holder decides to exit the market, partially or completely. The extent of the dip depends on how many people exiting the market and how much control they have over the distribution. This is the main reason why whale movements are studied and dreaded. A whale exiting the market could shake it badly, the market could ‘tank’ depending on the whale’s holdings.

A ‘crash’ results when a huge number of holders exit the market simultaneously and for tangible amounts; but then, ‘dips are for buying’…maybe.

Dips are not only ridiculous, they are (very) poisonous. Cryptocurrency dips are sinisterly; not only are they sudden, sometimes they are wild. 20% loss within 20 minutes. It happens faster than that most times, everything a cryptocurrency investor dreads. Well, you were warned. This space is more volatile than chemistry lessons. Poor comparison if you ask me.

A dip could mean different things to different people and could trigger a whole lot of (different) reactions.

For the investors with loads of stable coins looking to buy at a discount, a dip is a good drug. Load up! A discount in crypto could mean a lot if the market recovers and takes off. The profits start to come as the market recovers. When the market return to its previous state, you’re already in gains. The percentage gain will depend on how much the market dipped and when you bought. But a gain is a gain and any gain is a delight.

For the investor who just bought, the regret exists but could be different depending on the investor. For some, the regret is that they could have bought at a discount if the waited for a little longer. But if you believe in the project and hold off as long as required then there is no ‘good’ time to buy. For other investors, buying was a mistake. Not sure if any advice should be given here.

Reactions to dips also differ. True believers would hold on to their bags and probably buy more as the discount is an opportunity. Others get paranoid and sell off, taking profit or stopping the running loss. Unto the next one, a move which might see the loss continue or the recovery start.

Dips are always unpleasant, except if you’re waiting to buy at a discount. Even after a 100% gain, an investor still frowns at a dip, but the charts can not continue to stay green. Dips are in fact; important. That probably sound harsh, but that’s what reality is. HODL and Buy the dip…with caution. Now that’s not a financial advice!

Yeah apparently with this dip I'm going to have to readjust some goals about getting a gaming laptop as now the really nice one is definitely out of my league at the current moment.

However it's okay because I've got so much here and it's making interest on the numbers that I currently have staked!!!!

That and my new puppy dog account is starting to trade as well!!!!!

Some big huge moves are coming here. I really can't wait.

It’s all about building a strong foundation. The problem with most crypto investors in todays space is that they are incredibly short sighted and are only in it for the pumpamentals. If you are in it for the fundamentals, then dips are for buying… not financial advise, just some good ole hustler advice, lol.

Yeah, Dips are for buying...crashes are for being cautious. Depends on how investors see it though. Thanks for taking time to read.
