Haejinality vs. Reality (XRP Review)--Ripple-- 76% LOSS in 2018
#Haejinality vs. Reality.
In continuing the series I started here:
I am now reviewing the XRP calls made by @haejin for accuracy
In all fairness I will start at the oldest first and work from there.
Record Bull Market
Around December 12th,2017 XRP (Ripple) was .74 cents, @Haejin Called XRP to be $1.33 by March of 2018.
His target was exceeded with XRP reaching an all time high of $3.30 on January 4th of 2018 with a closing price of $2.73 before crashing to a low of .67 cents on February 2nd. As we have yet to reach March, I cannot say whether his ultimate target will or will not be correct. I can only judge the shorter range targets he set in his analysis; which he met in this instance.
Haejenality: XRP to be $1.33 by March of 2018.
Reality: XRP reaching an all time high of $3.30 on January 4th of 2018 with a closing price of $2.73 before crashing to a low of .67 cents on February 2nd.
Other factors: BTC was trading around $14000 at the time and this call was made; over the next week BTC would gain 30% to reach an all time high of $19,891 on December 17th. As we all know BTC began to crash at this point and would lose approximately 50% of its value to a low of $10,200 on December 22nd.
Opinion: Had you of purchased XVG at the time @haejin made the call and sold at the close of 2.73 on January 4th you would have made 368%. However, as the view on BTC and cryptocurrency was still extraordinarily bullish at the time of the call and for a number of weeks following, pretty much every other ALT coin experienced explosive price growth as well. In fact even though BTC was already a couple weeks into this correction and down nearly 30 percent from its high $19,891 on December 17th the market did not peak until January 7th of 2018. So this again was more the result of overall market sentiment toward cryptocurrency and not a miraculous call as you could of picked any number of ALTS and made extraordinarily high returns.
And then the BEAR comes to town.
On January 7th XVG was 2.70 Cents and @haijin called XRP to hit $3.56 before February and $4.11 sometime in late March; 309% more bullish than his original March call on December 12th, 2017. Again as we have yet to reach March, I cannot say whether his ultimate target will or will not be correct. I can only judge the shorter range targets he set in his analysis; which at this point seems to be failing in spectacular fashion.
Haejenality: XRP to hit $3.56 before February and $4.11 sometime in late March according to his chart diagram and wave overlay.
Reality: The following day XRP would shed 31% of its value to a low of $1.91 and would essentially lose each and every day thereafter reaching a low of .67 cents on February 2nd. Current price .83 cents.
Other factors: BTC was obviously deep into its corrective period at this time having already hit a low of $10,200 and failing to reach within 14% of its previous high. On the day of this call, BTC was actually selling off and lost 7% having opened at $17,100 and closed at $16,200.
Opinion: Can’t hit the curve, nonsensical call for higher highs on an ALT coin going against the greater trend of the crypto market. If you would of purchased XRP at the time of the call $2.70 and HODLED through it all you would of lost 76% to date. If you would have bought BTC and HODLED you would of lost 51%. Objectively you would have lost 25% less simply HODLING BTC than purchasing on his recommendation.
@haejin can pick a winner during a record breaking bull market in which the entire market cap of Cryptocurrencies went up 500% or more; in a corrective phase or bear market he can’t bunt the ball over home plate. Accordingly my magic 8 ball could have likely done just as well as him during the Bull Market time frame.
Additional info: I just love this part from the above call by @haejin..
"The below is XRP/BTC price chart. One of the most important skill any Technical Analyst can develop is called Forward Discernment. An ability to see partially completed patterns and conceptually visualize it. This is vital to be able to effectively gain market call accuracies above 75%. Most analysts have difficulty in this area but it can be a learned technique. For the below chart, forward discernment shows an a,b,c,d,e triangle. This now provides greater awareness in the probable price pathway and this is good, because awareness keeps the panic away! I'm projecting 26,055 Satoshi as the next target step!"
--Apparently his "Forward Discernment" needs a bit of work?
We shall See
