Bitcoin – portfolio add on strategy
Many ways lead to Rome (may be a few less, when it comes to market participation). One such way is a portfolio add on strategy we employ to support an existing portfolio holding.
We have been buying Bitcoin (BTC) early on, as you can view on our portfolio page. But even if you were “lucky” to hold Bitcoin from a price of $372, like in our case, you miss out on vast swing opportunities by simply just trying to hold onto your original purchase. Especially Bitcoin with its steep price advances and declines, invites for a more sophisticated market participation.
Markets trade from downward to sideways to upward price movements and vice versa. In the recent sideways phase of the market, no one knows when the actual upward turning point will occur.
The following chart illustrates our first attempt to pinpoint such a turning point possibility (1), and it failed. But thanks to our Quad Exit Strategy, we secured initial profits (2) and got stopped out at break even price levels, with the remainder of the position, to still generate income.
Just 4 days later we got it right (3).
Rewarded with a steep up movement, and again partial profit taking (4) secured risk mitigation and provided for generous profits.
Two more times we added to our core portfolio position (5).
And again we took money off the table (6), on the following days to generate income.
The idea here is to now own small left over positions from each of these trades, that can be added to our core portfolio position. All of this was achieved without pyramiding, as it might seem at a first glance. Each added position had its own right of a low risk entry point. Position size is in proportion to gains already achieved.
“Working” these positions on an even smaller time frame again, reduces risk even more. And additional hip pocketing of remainder “runner” positions towards ones portfolio holdings is possible.
We did just that, as this 60 minute chart illustrates and all entry and exit points were posted in real time in our Telegram channel.
The pure HODL approach confronts the investor with the problem of when to exit.
Adding strategy components like the one illustrated here, supports the market participant:
- to ensure long term gains
- short term income and risk reduction
- psychological ease of enjoying a consistent growth curve
- additional portfolio growth
- appropriate low risk tolerance
