It's not depressing As Neo says if it falls under 10k it just represents another great buying opportunity.
There is still no safecoin. Until there is a 'useful' coin the holder token will be crazy volatile. It doesn't reflect badly in any way that we could see some sub 10k prices again, especially as they could be over 12-15c in that range if BTC carries on rising.
BTC has never broken gold parity before, although it has come close. If it does it will get a lot of media buzz and it will rise more based on that buzz alone, so we will see some quick gains.
Lower prices don't depress me, they provide more opportunities, not fewer. The only thing that matters is the tech - the value will follow. The price is just an indicator of speculator positions, what they are speculating on is far more interesting than where they have parked their money today imo.
As some bright spark once said, trade the story, not the price
