    INDONESIA STOCK EXCHANGE CRASHES, QUITE LITERALLY

    There is no worse joke than a stock exchange literally collapsing through the ground, without warning. I am not referring to the stocks listed there, but the actual building itself. Apparently, 100 university students were invited to tour the exchange shortly prior. They were so excited to be at this honorable and distinguished exchange that they jumped so hard […]

    WAVES And More Oil

    Enough talk about Bitcoin already. Bitcoin is dead money and has been since their stupid blockchain started getting clogged. I’d bet my bottom dollar that all these people buying trying to catch an ‘oversold bounce’ couldn’t tell you a thing about how the Bitcoin blockchain works, other than ‘it will one day replace gold’. Having […]

    Crypto-world Up In Chaos

    This is what a blow-off top looks like. Cascading sell orders that trigger more sell orders with no bottom in sight. If I were to guess, the top in Bitcoin has been put in for the foreseeable future. I’m not suggesting it will go to zero like many critics are – that would also be […]

    S. Korean Cryptocurrency Ban Prompts Koreans To Go Nuts; 100,000 Sign Petition For Finance Minister To Resign

    See, this is why it is still so risky to keep your assets tied up in a wallet on some crypto exchange. Those miscreants are liable to get shut down by authorities at any given moment and their offices get raided by police on a consistent basis, just for sport. That’s the real-world equivalent to the […]

    Cryptos and Oil: Theme for 2018

    2 weeks into the year and so far off to a good start. The PEGI losses in my company portfolio have all been offset, and more, by STX over the past week and that said portfolio is up a cool 22% for the year so far. Believe me when I tell you, STX is just getting […]

    Minions On The Wall

    I just got back from Penang and had the pleasure of meandering about the mean streets of Georgetown on my few days there. People typically don’t spend much time in Georgetown, but rather go to Penang to eat durians, look at monkeys, and relax at the beach – in that particular order, of course. I find no amusement […]

    I Was Wrong on PEGI

    As a money manager, it is an egregious sin to allocate funds into underperforming sectors. For someone living off a dividend that is tolerable, but that does not describe me. Perhaps I may be right in the end on PEGI but I am not waiting years for it to play out. The alternative energy sector is dead […]

    Seagate Technology ‘May’ Own 4.3% of Ripple

    STX was up big today on speculation of news with the above headline. If this were to be true, according to speculation of a 4.3% ownership of Ripple, that position could be worth close to $7 billion, more than half of their current market cap. I usually don’t buy stocks off news events, but after […]

    2 Interesting Crypto-ideas with Potential

    It is very difficult to get involved with investing in cryptocurrencies now if you don’t already have a funded account at a crypto exchange. For reasons unbeknownst to me, most exchanges no longer accept new applications and even if you can open account the verification process to get funded would take forever. This is somewhat […]

    Mega-Cap Stocks Back In Favor

    For the love of god, I sell my IPGP position and it rips 10% the first 2 trading days of the year. Nothing new, the market is just keeping the status quo set last year. This trade will continue to work until it doesn’t. Large cap tech is back in favor, as it should be. […]
