So we brought on Brian Krogsgard (AKA Ledger Status) to help us understand the price action in the markets from a variety of perspectives. Brian is a host on the Ledger Status and UpOnly podcasts, and co-founder of the FlipMetrics data platform. Brian introduces the concept of investing and trading as a pyramid -- at the bottom of the pyramid lies fundamentals and an overall investing thesis. As one moves up the pyramid, the time frames become increasingly shorter, and at the top are the pure psychological and analytical-based trades. Having sound plans throughout this pyramid is what makes for strong investing. Fundamentals, narratives, and tactics form a holistic approach which dictates how you should execute rotations and denominate wealth. Ledger screens by fundamentals, and enters by technicals, while keeping the tactical side of things as simple as possible to avoid "analysis paralysis." The technical top of the pyramid is influenced by market psychology, and is inherently chaotic and more difficult to grasp. With a broad approach to playing this money game, Brian went down the DeFi rabbit hole throughout the course of 'DeFi Summer' in 2020. The object of this game is a quest to get more ETH. Although there are countless ways to view a chart, these 'horoscopes' can easily become self-fulfilling prophecies when it comes to aggregate market psychology. ------ Resources: Ledger on Twitter: https://twitter.com/ledgerstatus?s=20  Flip Metrics: https://flipmetrics.com/  UpOnly: https://uponly.tv/  Ledger Status Podcast: https://ledgerstatus.com/  ----- Topics Covered: 0:00 Intro 7:12 Brian Krogsgard aka Ledger 10:53 The DeFi/Miami Rabbit Hole 15:35 Trading, Narratives, and Fundamentals 22:25 The Work of Savvy Investing 27:41 The Approach 36:30 Diving into the Charts 39:40 The BTC Death Cross 42:15 Ledger's Favorite Charts 45:23 Moving Averages 51:43 Where do I wanna buy? 55:26 Decoupling, Dragging, & PR 1:03:59 Visualizing 2017 and Psychology 1:08:00 The Not So Happy Scenario 1:11:00 The Happier Scenario (For ETH) 1:15:00 ETH / DeFi Ratio 1:20:28 DeFi's and Tech Growth Stocks 1:25:55 Flip Metrics 1:28:27 So...
