    So sorry to hear this sad news. At least you were able to say your ‘goodbyes’, if it is any consolation, your family member passed surrounded by loving family, in comfort and care.
    Our thoughts and prayers go out to you and your family. God Bless.

      In deferrence to the Fly, I’m not going to go into my usual updates.

      However, here is a big picture item to think about:

      ***There are millions of mature investors and traders in their 30s that have never seen a bear market.***

      All investors start out inherently bullish both by nature and through the system (financial media + restrictions on short selling). If those investors took (bullish risks) through leveraging concentrating on momemtum vs value, etc., they were handsomely rewarded and think they are pro-pickers. And contrary to older investors that have seen monetary losses (though recovered) through the past bear markets, they haven’t taken the lesson of “bear markets happen” but instead “bear markets always recover.” Of course, younger investors are also exactly the type that will flock to tech brands: Apple, Tesla, Netflix, etc.

        ^this is true

        One bad market crash/drawdown and you become cynical and conservative forever. Happened in 2000 and again in 2008. We’re certainly due.

          Depression Era mentality. Once you’ve been scared out of your wits, you are scarred for life.

          I got married on 10/18/87. On 10/19/87, I was swimming in the Caribbean Sea.
          Also on 10/19/87, all of my call options evaporated into thin air. Mr. Market gave me a bum wedding present. Some of life’s lessons haven’t been taught in a while.

          Still married.

      Emotional, irrational behaviour to lash out at others and the market in the way that you do
      Correct attempts to call the top (0%)
      Projected and fabricated opulence to make up for lack of ??
      Where’s that lifetime concert list?
      +45.7% TTM in tax-sheltered account

      Many condolences Fly.

      Showtime! Dude! Truly great men, truly brilliant men… NEVER mention either of these attributes in their resumes. The don’t have to.

      Insecure men who doubt themselves and who despise the person they see in the mirror every morning can’t stop trying to convince others of their “greatness.”

      Just sayin’

    Regarding Crypto: I sold all my DASH and BSV… was thinking about saying in cash for the weekend but I’m starting to think I might be a XTZ fag so I bought some. RageCage mentioned it the other day and I guess it’s the real ETH?? The fans on twitter seem to think it’s a good one.

        I ended up on Bittrex – they seem to have markets for most of the coins and shit coins I’ve heard being talked about, and they let me use it here.
