7.25.2018

Good morning everyone, are we ready for another strange day in market land? Probably not, but it's coming anyway. 

I woke early today and when I flipped on a monitor on the way down the hall, I saw the S&P futures "unch" , meaning unchanged. They were 100% flat. Not up, not down. But as the news cycle evolved over the mornning, the futures started dipping and by 8 am, we had the DOW down 100 and the S&P off 6.

At The End of The Day
 
Over the years I’ve been asked about Bitcoin many times. For the most part my answer to it has remained about the same “at the end of the day, it’s a fiat currency”.  Now to the Bitcoin lovers, I’m just stupid. I have no problem with that. But then, do tell me...what exactly is Bitcoin backed by? Oh, digits “mined” from computer algorithms. In other words, I can’t exchange my Bitcoin for say gold, or silver? No. How about copper or Iron? Nope.

The End

Pretty harsh words they are…”the end”.  It usually means you’ve finished the movie or finished the book. But it also means you’ve finished “something” and in our case the something is the great Nixonian error of “let it be”  fiat money.  The end of that particular experiment is indeed nearing its end.

One of the issues that a person like myself has is that because we are not “widely” known, my voice has little sway over public opinion. If you’re a TV star, or movie star, or basket ball player for the Heat, anything you say will be followed by a tremendous amount of people “backing you up”.  The most obvious examples of that are fashion trends. When a few Hollywood “A” lister’s started wearing “ugg” boots for example, there was such a public rush for them, the company “ran out” and had to increase production by over 400% to keep up with demand.
