    This rings so true. With no experience I sat through a 60%+ draw down in bitcoin in 2014 (not really that much in actual $, I'm young) I proceeded to buy with most savings and sold advantageously last year and January. At this point I have to accept that there is a 99% chance I will never make a trade as good in my life again.
