Urgent Analysis: Bitcoin is at a Double Top + Ripple & Monero

Posted on April 26th, 2017.

Urgent update: XBTUSD I have just seen at least one setup on a 4 hour chart that suggests that XBT (bitcoin) is at a place in pricetime that suggest it may be at a turning point: As you can see, there is a double top an energy point and a 3rd arc all happening at this point in time. Individually, each of these is cause for concern. Taken...

French election Update: Markets Poised for Moderate Gains as Macron, Le Pen In front

Posted on April 23rd, 2017.

The previously most likely scenario looks to be playing out in the first round of the French presidential election, as Marine Le Pen and Emmanuelle Macron are ahead in early polls and projections. The “horror-scenario” is increasingly unlikely, as Melenchon is trailing Fillon for the third place. Although Le Pen might have a chance...

The Risks of the French Election and How to Play Them

Posted on April 20th, 2017.

Elections and votes have been among the worst nightmares of politicians and some investors as well. The Brexit vote last summer, the Italian constitutional referendum, the Dutch elections, and of course Donald Trump’s march to victory all stirred up markets, especially because of the huge errors made by polling companies and other...

Analysis of Ethereum and Litecoin

Ethereum ETH has been bumping along under the weight of a 3rd arc pair on a longer-term chart for the past few days. There is an energy point approaching. Which way will it likely break? Up or down? The first thing I notice is that pricetime is still below the 3rd arc, so that would be a red flag urging caution. On the other hand, price...

Active Fund Managers Underperform Indexes

Posted on April 14th, 2017.

Are active fund managers worth their fees? Not according to a newly-released report from S&P Dow Jones Indices that reports on actively managed fund performance.
