Chaos and Pandemonium, Again, in Crypto Markets

December 11th, 2018|

First off, as if any of this even matters anymore, Bitcoin SV is almost of equal value to Bitcoin Cash. I remember playing high school hoops against young Tommy Sloan. For years as a kid, he could never beat me in one-on-one. And then one day he did. That [Read more]

Paris is Burning, In Case you Hadn’t Heard

December 5th, 2018|

Riots, arson, mass arrests. People are unhappy. They want more. They blame the state: this includes the police, army, banks, media, universities. You can't put your finger on what (mostly) angry young men want but apparently it's safe to say the "status quo" is not it. My thesis to [Read more]

Wretched Monday Morning Price Action in Cryptos

December 3rd, 2018|

All you can see is red. On Twitter, you see lots of comments about "steep discounts". Why do people feel the need to blindly shill. It's more balanced on LinkedIn. Anyways, cryptos are falling fast. I guess we may soon learn if there are stop-loss orders placed at or [Read more]
