    I've stayed out of Dogecoin because there is no business case for it, which means it's not much better than a casino. More power to y'all that have made some cash on it though!

    It's well on the way!!! I bought it at $250, after it had gained over 10x in a year!

    I have a great knack of buying shit and selling it shortly before it goes bananas.
    Bought at $10 sold at $15 about a month ago. F

    The only real play out of those stocks is OG GME. The others weren't/aren't shorted nearly as much. Last house hearing on the subject, a DTCC rep said under oath that no one was margin called during the January run up. They haven't covered & are still in way over their heads. Gamestop shareholder meeting is tomorrow. Something interesting might come from that. Number of shares that voted in excess of the float? dividend payment coming? Either of those two would be very interesting. Or nothing might happen from it, who knows. /opinion /not financial advice /I don't know what I'm talking about

    I am a big fan of dollar cost averaging, with a split of 20% cash (rainy day fund), 40% stocks (growth) and 40% crypto (growth and inflation hedge). My stock bucket is heavy on tech, with an eye on future industries such as space exploration, AI, cloud computing, biotech, robotics and next generation energy systems. I'm also heavy on dividend funds, which I focus on rather than bonds, they compound nicely with the dividends automatically reinvesting. I'm holding steady over the year, and am up roughly 60% over the last 3 years. In addition I put 4% of the cash bucket with a 4% match into my companies 401k, with 75% of that in a target retirement date fund and 25% in high risk/ high reward growth funds. I'm in my 40's so my horizon is long, and I'm willing to tolerate a good amount of risk. I've been investing in Crypto since 2016, and dollar cost averaging smooths out the volatility. I lean heavily into Etherium, Bitcoin, Chainlink, Graph, Algorand, Cardano and Polygon. Actual use cases with me are important with Crypto, as there is a lot of crap in the industry. I avoid meme coins, although apparently I should have bought some Doge when it was $.0005... Never saw a use case for a joke coin, but apparently Gen Z enthusiasm outweighs fundamentals... All in all, the time in the market adage holds very true, as my market timing seems like a 50/50 bet most of the time. I am studying and learning technical analysis to improve this, as I have had some good luck day trading crypto in particular, and utilize a trading bot for simple small percentage gain swing trading. Most important thing I found was just to get started and don't pay too much attention to the market swings. (My personal strategy only. Not financial advice. Trade at your own risk.)

    I have 3% of my total net worth in crypto, I keep dollar cost averaging here and there. But for now in a long game I feel this position is safe.

    Profit Trailer Cloud. They have a free version you can run on Binance if you want to just try it out. You can get a monthly subscription or a lifetime license. It has a paper trading feature so you can get your strategies dialed in before you let it make actual trades. Would highly recommend doing paper trades with it for awhile. You can also get trading strategy scripts which can help a lot with your settings. I would recommend looking up Cryptognome, he has some very good scripts based on how aggressive you want to get. I would also recommend just starting with a few trading pairs until you get comfortable with it. You can white list specific pairings. I primarily trade BTC and ETH pairs, as my goal is to grow my position in those, rather than USD. If you get serious about it, I would also recommend getting a subscription to Cointracker. It can monitor your trades and track your tax liability, which can really be a pain otherwise.

    Are you speaking Japanese, cuz that's what I am reading.. I truly admire reading your posts, and am impressed by your knowledge. I want so much to really understand all this, but it just feels so foreign to me. I will continue to read and learn from you. I keep telling myself just take a $1000 or $2000 and just get started w/the basics of crypto, you gotta start somewhere.

    I would wait to see if BTC makes a higher high in the next couple days, if it does buy in BTC and ETH and let it sit.

    Problem is I don't even know where or how to start? I don't want to attach any of my current checking, savings, etc. to this so I am thinking about just just opening a new checking account at a separate bank so I can use strictly for crypto. Because of my lack of understanding of the whole crypto thing, I want it completely separate from any of my other investments. I plan on making weekly deposits w/my play money so I can learn, build, invest, etc. and not have to worry about it affecting my long term goals.

    I would make a Coinbase account very secure and insured and link it to your checking account, that's what I do. I keep very little in my checking and when I make a big crypto purchase I move money from savings into checking to buy it.

    Ya, this is my thinking as well. I have been trying to read and learn as much as possible as I do think there is much to be had w/the future of crypto. Thanks for the input. I start a 2 week vacation tomorrow, so I think I will jump in the water and start learning to swim in the crypto pool.

    I believe Coinbase is the only exchange that actually insures your crypto holdings.

    Isn't this some sh*t? Last week I sold 90% and placed it in high yield bond funds PHYZX,MFHVX,etc. I'm sitting this correction out lol.

    Moved more from savings to Schwab to buy the next low. Hold on tight! :dancingbacon:
