No SSL or AMP, am I doomed?

No SSL or AMP, am I doomed?
I'm well versed in SEO and site performance but I wonder if my conscious decision not to implement SSL or AMP is going to actually cost me some traffic. So far I haven't noticed any traffic loss but Google has repeatedly mentioned that they are increasing the importance of both in their web rankings.

Why no HTTPS?
Because it's not free, or even cheap in some cases, and my site does not sell any product, have any login or solicit any visitor interaction at all. It's a static html based site that simply has nothing to secure in terms of visitor interaction.

Why no AMP?
Because, as I mentioned above, my site is static html that actually slows down when I add more code, there is no database or other typical slowdowns to deal with and I've tested both with and without. Without comes out ahead. Also, I no longer jump on Google only things, like authorship, as I once did.

Should I be worried?
