Issue 39 – Playing the Long Game

Like it or not, many of you are now playing the crypto long game.

I know some were expecting to “play the cycle”, myself included. You buy during the bear market and then scale out near the top. I did take some profit in April, but perhaps not as much as I should have.

And maybe this bull market isn’t over. However, every breakdown makes that scenario less likely.

It’s not all bad, though. Whether you bought during the last bear market or you’re underwater right now, this is a time to dollar-cost average, in my opinion. You just need to be selective about it.

In today’s issue, I’ll discuss what it takes to play the long game as an investor, including where and what to buy. We’ll then finish up with a few charts, as always.

Let’s get it!

What, When, and Where?

Before we dive in, I want to remind you that nothing I discuss is financial advice. It’s all my opinion only, which means you should always perform your own due diligence.

With that out of the way, let’s talk about what it means to play the long game.

Every financial market has long-term and short-term participants. And some are both.

Many who planned to play this cycle by selling near the top are now holding their breath (and all of their crypto).
