BTC September monthly candle closes today. I'm thinking price will explode higher after the new October candle begins. Q4 should be strong for Bitcoin and crypto in general.

I think it is easy for some to increase selling pressure to drop the price, sure. The number of Bitcoins which trade are very small.

September is historically a bad month for Bitcoin. The best ever September in BTC's history is +6% gains. Conversely, October is one of the best month's historically. Q4 is usually the best quarter for BTC performance.

I love it, I bought every week in Sept. And I'm up 20% as of today. Get ready for the huge runups for bitcoin by end of year as the Feds inflation worries and other currency problems will lead to people fleeing the $ and equities.

If mining is so unprofitable as you suggest then the mining operations would all seize to exist. Instead I see mining getting bigger and more corporate. The miners are HODLing and not selling at today's prices. It's the scarcity and future price that will reward mining operations. If your rig turns $4/day but if the prices of any crypto goes 5-20x you're looking at a $40-60/day return in the future which is very likely for those who mined early last year and sold early this year.

I didn't say "unprofitable". I said profits are down. I mine everyday. Just one little rig.

Yea, yea, HODL deez nutz. I'm holding on to my mined coins, but I'm not expecting much. In fact, I'm expecting to lose it all. I have about $3.8k in Bit Coin now at today's exchange rates. All mined. No way would I put real money into this, but mining it out of thin air is fine by me, although I still think it is a waste of energy.
