I myself will not be a buyer here, TLT was down - $1.46  today at the exact resistance I mentioned, it is a good area to watch , the $133 resistance is strong, I shorted TLT this morning at the open at $132.50 , a small position, my stop loss is $133.10 , very minimal risk. I also shorted SNAP at $14.86 yesterday, today was down to $14.55, both are short term trades .
On TLT, some indicators I use flashed a short term sell, it hit the upper linear regression on the chart which means it is over bought, plus there was a diversion on the 14 RSI and CCI , they did not make a higher high while the price did, alse the 21-8 time series gave a sell too.

I don't know about short term, and I can assume TLT (or Treasuries) to be overbought, but with yields around the world being lower, I just don't understand how US yields aren't plunging even lower than where they are now.

Yes, I placed an order to buy before yesterday and the price jumped up without me getting filled, I did not want to chase it, now $10800, no resistance till $13500, I might get in for a short term trade on a pull back if we get one, it is overbought and can sell off first.
To bad I dipped my feet in so little.
 Should have bought more.
   I bought a few a 7-8k now at 11-12k.
 Crazy few weeks. Wonder if it's going to continue to the all time high again at 20k?

Are you buying to hold for long term?Very volatile and viscous movements, on June 19 it dropped $850 in 5 minutes,staying long is ok as long as you use a trailing stop loss.I only trade shorter term and always use a stop and stick to it.

Didn't invest heavily, so for now went through square(cashapp) and playing by air.
   Just hate the exchange rate when buying and selling my bitcoins. Always getting less then what I had.

The last resistance from years ago was around $1360 , it took it strongly, maybe the smart money sees something we don't , as long as it stays above $1360, the trend changed from sideways to up, a correction is currently underway, but so far not much. I am out for now looking for a new buying point.

   Is there any theory or reason whatsoever that I can assume the Bitcoin will be going up or fall suddently?

   Just looking at the past few weeks or month to two months it's been going up.
      Still not clear how it works, or if there is any theory behind it?
   To me it seems like playing the lottery and it's a hit or miss, while here chances might be a little bigger, hence you saw it going up and up, so you can assume it will continue to increase.
 With a lottery ticket, 50% you win, 50% you lose.
   While with these bitcoins I would presume that'll continue going up.

BTC tripled in 2 months, and almost doubled in 2 weeks, try to ride it all the way up with a trailing stop to protect any profits you might have. Was just up over $1000 and I shorted 2 contracts for a quick day trade, not risking much , but if i am right cand end with a very nice profit.

Who you go through when using a trailing stop?

Maybe I should become a minor, if im getting a half of BTC that's nice cash.

 Or just invest in the stocks

You can just use a mental stop if your trading platform does not allow placing a stop, though it is harder since BTC trades 24 hours a day and you are not able to watch it day and night, the best you can do is to never let any profit turn into a loss, so if it keeps going higher, keep raising your mental stop to trail the price, once the price hits your stop just sell, no one ever, can catch the exact tops or bottoms, but sometimes it does happen, I shorted BTC last year at the exact top and made a killing, the most important thing is to limit your losses, if you do, the profits will come.
