Not Playing Games

Posted on September 19th, 2017.

August and Everything After

Posted on September 15th, 2017.

The entire crypto market rose during the month of August by 84%. Staggering gains only come with significant risk so it’s not a surprise to see a retracement of 35% since the end of that beautiful month. With the uncertainty regarding the future of the Chinese crypto market and the closing of BTC China now fully priced in many big...

Perfect Weather

Posted on September 14th, 2017.

Have you ever had the feeling that the weather is either too good to be true, or too bad to be natural? Forget climate change, it seems increasingly likely that the governments of the world either are at the moment or will be able to control the sunshine and clouds. A program called HAARP, which is funded through the US...

Financials Fight Back (Crypto is after their lunch)

Posted on September 13th, 2017.

Hooray! The world has a new iPhone. Or at least it will in November. Just like all previous models, Apple claims that this is the most technologically advanced smartphone that they’ve ever created.

$20,000,000,000,000

Posted on September 12th, 2017.

Some say the chart of Bitcoin over the past year is simply outrageous. Well, maybe it is, but not as outrageous as the US national debt!!

Kick it Up

Posted on September 8th, 2017.

Out of all big flashy ICOs until now none have been as big as this next one. It’s a shame the Chinese won’t be joining us this time around. If you’re not familiar with Kik, you should be.

Four Empty Seats

Posted on September 7th, 2017.

Today we say farewell to one of my favorite bankers Stanely Fischer who has officially resigned from his position as Vice Chairman of the Federal Reserve Bank in the United States.

Swimming Against the Stream

Posted on September 6th, 2017.

Tomorrow is a big day for European markets and for the Euro. The ECB has been walking a tight rope of monetary policy and has reached the end of the line. We can expect the Euro to be extremely volatile over the next few days as Mario Draghi is expected to come to a decision. Will they start to reduce their extensive QE program and raise...

The Only Semblance of Sanity

Posted on September 5th, 2017.

So far there’s been virtually no reaction from financial markets to the most recent provocations from North Korea.

1000 Times More Powerful

Posted on September 4th, 2017.

When we think about what makes money money, aside from the perception of value, we also need to have liquidity. Meaning, that it’s not enough for people to believe something has value, it also needs to be easily exchangeable for goods and services in order to be considered a viable store of wealth. In Japan, the government has...

Many of you probably recall the situation we had on November 8th of 2016 that had billions of people in a panic and genuinely worried about the future.
