Let's wait and see what happens if BTC drops below the 5000 level...

At this rate, that could be Wednesday or Thursday. Putting in new lows here at 6930.

MCC = merchant category code,
on top of creditcard fee, there will now be a fee, like you take cash with your
credit card out of the well (= cash advance)

When is the time for a BIG correction?

That question is very old and has shown some really nice points in the past to open our eyes:

Time for change in the markets is:
• when interest rates are on the bottom and are nearly ready to go north again
• when skirts of girls can't get shorter - but will get longer again
• when feminism ends in a #metoo debate (no more grid girls on F1 racing)
• when money in the markets is printed money (fiat money) and not built by the industry but making ATH's in a row
• when longtime lies of large companies are coming to the surface (see banks or car builders like VW, Daimler etc.)
• when large banks are making negative money with there "investment bankers"
• when every housewife gives trading/gambling a big part of time in the day

That is when you need to RELOAD your systems for trading.

And then the time has come to think about trading itself.

Kind of seems appropriate.

Brings us back to

  • infrastructure risk
  • regulatory oversight
  • governing body

Ouch.

Anything new always involves, to some degree, throwing off the restraints of the old.

The problem is that sometimes the old restraints were a good idea, and not all new things will work out well.

Saw this in the NYTimes this morning

The official in charge of regulating virtual currencies in South Korea was found dead at home on Sunday.


Bitcoin price is climbing again.

Interesting read...

Bloomberg: Venezuela Is Jumping Into the Crypto Craze

https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2018-02-20/venezuela-is-jumping-into-the-crypto-craze

Maduro frequently says that the Petro will be backed by Venezuela’s oil reserves, as well as its storehouses of gold and diamonds. Yet there is no way to exchange the digital currency for any hard assets.
