Michael Saylor, CEO of MicroStrategy, borrowed money to buy Bitcoin. He has stated that he gets a margin call if Bitcoin tumbles to $21,000.

Technically speaking, Bitcoin is on the tip of a major precipice. The next support level is somewhere in the $17,500 to $19,000 level.

That does not guarantee or imply Bitcoin will fall that low, but, this is a bear market and support levels tend to break.

Moreover, the fact that everyone knows where the pain level is, tends a bit to be self-fulfilling. 

Thinking this through

Saylor says he will simply pledge more assets. Well that will do nothing but set an even lower pain level. 

This can cascade spectacularly.

This time, MicroStrategy (MSTR) is trading like a speculative leveraged play on Bitcoin (because it is a speculative leveraged play on Bitcoin).

How many days before a margin call?
