Morning Poppers (Crypto-Fly Edition)

You can consider me full blown crypto-Fly now; but not because I want to buy Bitcoin at $16,000 — but because I am enthralled by a brand new investor class that is teeming with exuberance. While I might be stubborn and a little old fashioned (I do smoke a pipe), I’m certainly not an idiot and have a good sense about the general direction of things. I intend to create a suite of financial products and tools for the crypto-space, which will be offered open source (free) to all of those interested. Unlike equities, there is a wide open gap in education and general information about tokens and coins. Being the generous man that I am, I intend to arb that ignorance and make a horse-race out of it. Considering we have over a decade in providing the good folks around here with a top shelf Market Intelligence Platform for equities, fitted with predictive mean reversion algorithms, I believe we are better suited than most to tackle this issue.

Stay tuned for details in the weeks to come.

European markets are flat, but WTI is higher again by 0.7%. I’m thinking there’s something brewing in crude. It might be worthwhile to buy some dog shit oils into Xmas.

Futures are higher and I’m looking at the biggest gambles known to mankind just before year end. Starting 2018, I will most likely invest exclusively via my quantitative tools, making adjustments once per month to reduce churn. The goal here is to automate my retirement. Considering I’m only 41, I have time to develop these methods and strategies. It will be a great help to be actively managing again, which I also intend to do.

    That should be interesting. Automating investments in times of www3. ME, 2018, false flag. Mark your calendars girls. There has not been time in human history when “reserve” currency collapsed w/o massive wars to distract and turn subjects against each other rather than the moneychangers. There’s a job that has not been finished since the times Jesus kiked cheating moneychangers from the Temple.

    Call me old fashioned… but I 100% believe this is a moment in human history where we will look back and laugh at the folks paying 18,000 for one digital token.

    In the meanwhile I’ll keep playing with RIOT on a daily until the music stops on this nonsense.

      I was just enjoying reading my FB feed with the young millennials having discussions about LiteCoin and BitCoins etc…

      The best part is when someone else joins in and says, “what’s this crypto currency thing all about”?

      Answer from other millennial: I have no idea but if you buy these things and never sell them, in a few years we will be rich as fuck!”

      Ya… thats not going to work out well for them.

      Correct. And yes I agree that Bitcoin is frothy. But, I’ve been exploring the ICO market and there are some interesting companies coming out. It’s worth building a platform to better inform prospective and current investors.

    Remember whenever everyone involved in crypto was a MASSIVE FAGGOT? That was just a week ago, going for months. Kudos on covering the integrity short and flipping exodus crypto toolkit long, need to have some content to drive your blog with all the equity lotto tickets falling going bust.

      You truly have zero humor in you. Do you often go to parties and find that people often walk away from you?

      Hint: you’re an asshole.

        You’re a 41 year old father of three, when your kids do stupid stuff do you call them massive faggots too? Bc it’s humor right? You were wrong and pompous. Don’t pretend.

    BTC is going to be the end of this bull

    something big like an exchange bankruptcy or gov intervention will kick it off

    I bought $10k at $1200 and sold at $2400 on the last big dip before it took off so I might be salty

    still think lots of coins can go up 10x before it happens

    Oil to trade higher as Saudi’s set up to conduct the largest IPO in history next year. Short squeeze in certain names will be like rocket fuel. Let’s play!

    We shall find out how deep the liquidity hole in bitchcoin is now that Interactive Brokers let clients short these crypto abominations. The days of wash trades spiraling prices up are done. Into the basement this shit falls.

    These coins are still way too hated to put in a top. The FOMO is just starting to spread.
