The risk/reward is incredibly simple for this trade. They are not worth complicating because the crypto-market doesn't allow you to. Anyone that puts on a short on either of these assets is at a huge disadvantage. Anyone that thinks they could time these assets or use leverage beyond their capital is in the same position as the guy willing to short them. Disadvantaged. Ironically, these factors; the speed of trade, the , the lack of liquidity, reduce the variables in the risk equation. Simply buying and holding is the best strategy for either one. To get as many Ethereum as I can, I want price to reach the purple region.
BITCOIN could EASILY fall back into its key level $1100. Look at the the green dashed line at 1100 - this was the original major breakout line I expect price to potentially revisit.
But if Ethereum goes down, won't Bitcoin!? Not necessarily, but probably...
For the skeptic out there, you are seriously wasting your time. There aren't many assets that are so accessible to everyone in the world with only one main goal - to survive. As long as these assets survive, money will flow from all different sides of the world. As long as that happens for the next 5 - 10 years +, they will likely rise exponentially. So let's think about that for a second. If I risk 10% of my net-worth, or even 20%, I could lose 10 - 20% of my entire net-worth if Ethereum goes to zero. If it survives, I will probably make 10x, 20x, etc, on my investment. Risk/Reward? It's risk $1 to make $10, or much more.
