Tonight’s closing comment video https://youtu.be/AeKKwW1lmKw SECTORS: The news of COVID-19 surges in cases to new highs has caused the states of both Texas and Florida to halt the progression of their re-openings. In fact, both states have closed bars since it is a place for younger people to gather and the 25 -39 group shows the biggest increases in cases. There are states that have seen increases of up to 300% from where they were when the re-openings began. For a look at how ALL the states are doing use this link: https://rt.live/ There were 2 stars in the market today; the obvious brightest star was Boeing (BA) on the strength of it starting FAA piloted flights of the 737 MAX for re-certification. The flights seem to be okay, but the flights are just the tip of the iceberg since all of the data now has to be analyzed. I’m sure it will be a little while before we hear anything substantive, but it was a start after over 440 days of grounding (March 2019). But buyers wouldn’t be stopped after the recent decline from the recovery high of $234 to close $170.01 Friday. The stock opened $181.65 and traded up to $194.50 before closing on the highs at $194.49 +24.48 (14.4%). The second star was FB, embroiled in the cancellation of ads but some of the world’s biggest and best companies due to racist and hate oriented content. Last Tuesday before the advertisers started pulling ads the stock had made a new all-time high at $245 but started lower the next day. On Friday Unilever and KO had pulled (adding to the list of medium sized firms) and the stock fell to $215. This morning Starbucks adding to the list and the stock fell to $207.11 before the market took off (see above) and by 10:45 it had crossed unchanged and kept moving to close $220.64 +4.56 (2.1%) but $13 from the low. We’ll have to see what it can do when it gets to supply between $224-226. Earning from two chip makers both beat, and both gave solid guidance. MU finished $52.11 +2.96 (6%), while XLNX was $98.47 +6.50 (7%). Simon Property Group (SPG) reaffirmed its earnings quoting the fact that 199 of their 204 properties across 37 states are open and operating. They also declared their dividend and added that they expect to pay $6.00 in cash for 2020. The stock had closed $68.13 +6.23 (10%) but rose further in late trading and was $72.52 + $439 or another 6.4%.

We sold half on the 100% Up Rule @ $2.94 yesterday and we closed $2.12 today.
BITCOIN: closed $9,200 -20. After trading back to 8985 we rallied back to close – only $5. Since last week we have closed between 9200 – 92.85 every day with narrow ranges. A break over 10,000 still sends us higher. We added 350 shares of GBTC last Wednesday @ $10.02 to our position of 400 @ $8.06, bringing our average price to $8.97. GBTC closed $9.48 - .22 today.

Fed steps in Bonds

For Trading JUNE 16th
FED STEPS INTO BONDS
Market Reverses 1000 Points
Smallcaps Lead the Way!
Today’s market was dramatic, to say the least. Futures were down hard on the COVID-19 spikes that I discussed in yesterday’s Weekly letter, but the worst was over within 15 minutes of the opening. The market then spent until about 1:15 grinding its way back to unchanged and was testing both sides of unchanged until the Fed announced that it was going into the market for individual bonds, not just the ETF’s. That took us to new highs +280 before another selloff to test unchanged again and a rally to close us +157.62 +.62%), NASDAQ +137.21 (1.43%), S&P 500 +25.28 (.83%), the Russell (listen to the closing video below) the biggest winner +31.92 (2.3%) and the DJ Transports +78 (.86%). The DJIA was 21:9 up with GS +31, AAPL +29 the gainers and MRK -16DPs the big loser. A/D were healthy at 2:1 NYSE, 2.5:1 NAZ, and volume was 3:2 higher. Financials, consumer staples, communication, and real estate the strength with Healthcare and Energy the “least strong.” All sectors were higher. The test tomorrow is the Friday highs of that day’s rally. DJIA 25,965, NASDAQ 9,768.84, S&P 500 3,088.42. After that, it’s back into the gap from last Thursday’s break lower.

DJIA -1315 From Yesterday’s High
POWELL Says, “No Neg Rates”
Today’s market was down from the start with PPI numbers and Jay Powell talking about the economy, negative rates, a slower than Trump promises recovery and just in general spooking anyone within the sound of his voice. The futures had been higher, but the rally in afterhours last night had pushed up the “fair value” to the point of a negative open. It only got worse throughout the day as the A/D and volume piled up on the downside finishing 8:1 down on the NYSE and 4:1 on the NAZ, but also on the NY the volume was a solid 7:1 down too. On the DJIA we had only one stock up, MRK, and only $ .74. The losers were spread around with UHN the biggest loser -70, GS -37, MMM -36 AND AXP -35 DPs. Financials, Energy, and Industrials were the weakest with Consumer staples and Utilities the “least weak.”

Tonight’s closing comment video https://youtu.be/vm3CUCipzT0
SECTORS: The news from UBER / GRUB was that there would be no deal at 2.1 shares of UBER for GRUB, but it was disclosed that UBER was considering a ratio of just 1.9:1, so UBER moved up $ .62 while GRUB was lower by $2.25 (3.73%). The good news was that UBER said there were $300 million in cost efficiencies in the deal for them. Not much of a dent in the $2.9 Billion they lost this quarter, but I guess you have to start somewhere.
Cisco reported a beat after the close and the stock, down from a high yesterday of $44.30 had closed $41.95 - $1.27 rallied on the news to $44.45 but closed $42.94 +.99.
ASCO, the Cancer Society annual meeting is in 2 weeks, and Allogene (ALLO) published their findings on a new therapy and the stock shot up from its close of $30.98 -1.56 (4.79%) to trade as high as $46.57 before closing $39.50 + 8.52. There will be a steady stream of these type of announcements in the next 10 days.
FOOD SUPPLY: was MIXED with TSN -1.58, BGS +1.50, FLO +1.29, CAG +.18, MDLZ -.84, KHC -.16, CALM -.55, JJSF -.65, SAFM -.94, LANC +.63, GO -.61, UNFI +7.22 (46.55%) on preliminary reporting of their Q3 sales and several upgrades lead the group, and BYND +1.07.
BIOPHARMA: was LOWER with BIIB -4.81, ABBV -1.38, REGN +19.46, ISRG -13.93, GILD -.61, MYL -.53, TEVA -.37, VRTX +1.43, BHC -.64, INCY -.29, ICPT -2.37, LABU -2.69 and IBB $130.00 -1.05 (.80%).
CANNABIS: This group was LOWER with TLRY -.21, CGC -1.07, CRON -.28, GWPH -3.95, ACB -.56 (8.67%), PYX -.04, NBEV -.065, CURLF +.06, KERN -.02 and MJ $10.96 -.59 (5.11%).

OIL, $26.68 -.65. Oil was another short-range day that gave no hint of direction to come as we finished down a bit. The contract was rolled forward so the price is slightly higher but still unable to make any headway against overhead supply. All the stocks on my list were lower with XLE $35.73 -1.70 (4.54%).
METALS, GOLD: $1,716.40 +9.60. After the recent gains, Gold broke below $1,700 yesterday but failed to follow-thru to the downside and closed higher. The 5 and 20-day MAs look like they may cross to the upside, But it was still unable to break the downtrend line at $1,726. We are long NEM.
BITCOIN: closed $9,270 +400. After breaking out over $7500 we have moved as high as just over $10,000 before gapping down overnight to trade as low as $8,400 earlier this week. We continue to recover higher prices and we added 350 shares of GBTC yesterday @ $10.02 to our position of 400 @ $8.06, bringing our average price to $8.97. GBTC closed $11.21 + .58 today.

Fed Steps into Bonds

For Trading JUNE 16th
Market Reverses 1000 Points
Smallcaps Lead the Way!
Today’s market was dramatic, to say the least. Futures were down hard on the COVID-19 spikes that I discussed in yesterday’s Weekly letter, but the worst was over within 15 minutes of the opening. The market then spent until about 1:15 grinding its way back to unchanged and was testing both sides of unchanged until the Fed announced that it was going into the market for individual bonds, not just the ETF’s. That took us to new highs +280 before another selloff to test unchanged again and a rally to close us +157.62 +.62%), NASDAQ +137.21 (1.43%), S&P 500 +25.28 (.83%), the Russell (listen to the closing video below) the biggest winner +31.92 (2.3%) and the DJ Transports +78 (.86%). The DJIA was 21:9 up with GS +31, AAPL +29 the gainers and MRK -16DPs the big loser. A/D were healthy at 2:1 NYSE, 2.5:1 NAZ, and volume was 3:2 higher. Financials, consumer staples, communication, and real estate the strength with Healthcare and Energy the “least strong.” All sectors were higher. The test tomorrow is the Friday highs of that day’s rally. DJIA 25,965, NASDAQ 9,768.84, S&P 500 3,088.42. After that, it’s back into the gap from last Thursday’s break lower.

DJIA Reverses 835
POWELL Says, “No Neg Rates”, BUT
Today’s market was down from the start with the initial and continuing claims numbers, but it only lasted for 45 minutes before the market started back to the unchanged mark. We chopped around until 1:00PM and then we were above the prior close to stay. We finished +377.37 (1.62%), NASDAQ +80.55 (.91%), S&P 500 +32.50 (1.15%), the Russell +4.30 (.32%) and the DJ Transports +37.54 (.48%) and still -471 (5.65%) for the week. Market internals were anemic for an 835 rally at just over 1:1 on both exchanges. DJIA was 25 / 5 higher with no losses of over $3 DPs while gainers were UNH +86, AXP +39, HD +29, V +26, and JPM +24 DPs.
While Jay Powell said, “not looking at negative rates,” they really have no control over the markets. As our rates remain higher than others, we continue to be a magnet for the massive amount of money looking for a home. He may not be considering them, but he can’t really enforce the issue without some very unattractive methods of monetary controls, which, BTW, never work.
Our “open forum” on Discord, which allows me to interact with subscribers and others to allow direct questions and chart opinions on just about any stock, continues to grow with more participants every day. It is informative and allows me to share insights as the market is open and moving. The link is: https://discord.gg/ATvC7YZ and I will be there and active from before the open and all day. It’s a great place to share ideas and gain some insights, and we’ve grown to almost 1900 members. I also did this video titled “How to survive being an options trader and not blow up your account,” over the long weekend. I think it’s very informative as a guide to stock selection and option choices. The link is https://youtu.be/Y7H9RpWfLlo Enjoy!!
Tonight’s closing comment video https://youtu.be/MKauYKKMqeo
SECTORS: The news Taiwan Semi (TSM) that they were building an “advanced chip” facility in Arizona helped the group early and it finished $52.10 +1.18 (2.3%). AMAT followed with earnings after the close and while they were somewhat a disappointment, the stock, which closed $54.43 +2.94 (5.71%), it moved up to $57.88 and finished $57.01 +2.58.
Last night I mentioned ASCO, the Cancer Society annual meeting is in 2 weeks, and Allogene (ALLO) published their findings on a new therapy and the stock shot up from its close of $30.98 -1.56 (4.79%) to trade as high as $46.57 before closing $39.50 + 8.52. Today it continued higher and finished $42.12 +11.14 (35.96%). There will be a steady stream of these type of announcements in the next 10 days.

OIL, $27.88 +2.20. Oil was higher today with the close right on the falling 50-day moving average. The most recent downside break occurred from just under $29.00 and may stop this move too, but we’ll have to see. All the stocks on my list were higher with XLE $36.38 +.65 (4.13%).
METALS, GOLD: $1,740.90 +24.50. After breaking the downtrend line around $17.27 we continued higher hitting $1746 before closing strong. The 5 and 20-day MAs look like they may cross to the upside, we are long NEM.
BITCOIN: closed $9,725 +405. After breaking out over $7500 we have moved as high as just over $10,000 before gapping down overnight to trade as low as $8,400 earlier this week. We continue to recover higher prices and today broke above the $10030 close from which we gapped down on Monday. We added 350 shares of GBTC Wednesday @ $10.02 to our position of 400 @ $8.06, bringing our average price to $8.97. GBTC closed $11.80 + .59 today.

Dash Competitive Basket index for Sunday, 14 June, 2020.

Dash Competitive Basket index for Sunday, 14 June, 2020.
The 7 day CBI data for Dash was dangerously close to healthy today. (50% win rate) And the 24 hour data was spectacular, beating 87% of the top 31 cryptos in the world. The 30 day moving average continues to steadily creep up. Do it again x 100. The world desperately needs honest money.

  1. Dash outperformed 11 of the 21 cryptos listed above us on CoinPaprika (52% win rate). The 30 day SMA* is 41%
  2. Dash outperformed 4 of the 10 cryptos ranked below us (40% win rate). The 30 day SMA* is 31%.
  3. In total, Dash outperformed 15 of the top 31 cryptos (48% win rate) on the 7 day time frame. The 30 day SMA* is 38%.
  4. Bitcoin dominance was unchanged again at 64.2% It’s been range bound for 2 weeks.
  5. 10 of the top 31 cryptos beat Bitcoin (32%) on the 7 day data.
  6. On the 7 day time frame, 6 of the top 32 cryptos (19%) were in the green. Mostly stable coins and exchange tokens.
  7. On the 24 hour time frame, 9 of the top 32 (28%) cryptos were in the green.
  8. On the 24 hour time frame, Dash beat 27 of the top 31 cryptos (81%).
* The 30 day SMA is the Simple Moving Average for the last 30 days. It is represented with the red line. The blue line is the daily Dash performance based on the price change over a one week period compared to the price change of other coins. Don’t invest more in crypto than you can afford to lose.
^ Dash vs the 21 cryptos listed above us. Still looks like an uptrend to me.

The red line is the percentage of the top 32 Alt Coins that were in the green (price went up) on the 24 hour time frame.
The blue line is the percentage of the top 32 Alt Coins that were in the green (price went up) on the 7 day time frame.
Both the 24 hour data and the 7 day cautiously poked their head up out of the foxhole. If they don’t get shot at again (Dow stable or up a bit) then perhaps up with a bit more enthusiasm. Tune in tomorrow!

Red line is the percentage of the top 31 cryptos that Dash beat on the 24 hour time frame.
Blue line is the percentage of the top 31 that Dash beat on the 7 day time frame.
Yesterday looked like it could turn into an uptrend. Today looks even more like an uptrend. So, probably down tomorrow, but provided it just makes a higher low, we’re still good. And never forget, this is crypto. Nobody really knows what’s going to happen tomorrow.

End of day summary - 04/01

The Dow fell 973.65, or 4.44%, to 20,943.51, the Nasdaq lost 339.52, or 4.41%, to 7,360.58, and the S&P 500 declined 114.09, or 4.41%, to 2,470.50.
The stock market retreated more than 4% to start the second quarter on Wednesday, as President Trump warned that the next two weeks will be "very painful" in terms of coronavirus fatalities. The S&P 500 (-4.4%), Dow Jones Industrial Average (-4.4%), and Nasdaq Composite (-4.4%) each fell 4.4%. The Russell 2000 underperformed with a 7.1% decline.
In COVID-19 news, The Hill reported that Florida Governor Ron DeSantis said he will sign an executive order requiring the state's residents to limit their movement outside of their homes. DeSantis has faced intense criticism for refusing to issue a stay-at-home order, the report noted.
Meanwhile, the latest data from the Johns Hopkins Whiting School of Engineering shows there are now 911,308 confirmed cases of COVID-19 and 45,497 deaths due to the disease.
The coronavirus task force on Tuesday estimated that deaths attributed to COVID-19 could total 100,000-240,000 in the U.S. with daily deaths projected to peak in two weeks. To help contain the outbreak, and hopefully bring these figures down, Florida, Nevada, and Pennsylvania joined the growing list of states to issue 'stay at home' orders for 30 days.
Original assumptions made by the medical community were based on the data coming out of China, which the U.S. intelligence community said underrepresented the real number of cases and deaths in the country, according to Bloomberg. The White House's projections, based on new data being released every day, had the market worried about the social and psychological effects on the economy.

In U.S. data, ADP reported private payrolls fell "only" 27,000 in March, which was not as bad as many had forecast. However, ADP acknowledged the data don't really reflect the realities on the ground as a lot of the firings have taken place after the week that ended its survey. The ISM manufacturing index dropped 1.0 point to 49.1 in March, which was also not as bad as feared. Markit's manufacturing PMI was revised down to 48.5 in the final print for March. That was a little lower than the 49.2 flash reading for the month and down 2.2 points from February's 50.7 reading. Construction spending dropped 1.3% in February.
In China, the Caixin manufacturing PMI climbed 9.8 points to 50.1 in March, almost fully recovering from the 10.8 point drop to the record low of 40.3 in February. The better than expected bounce is in line with the surprising 16.3 point jump in the official index to 52.0.
In turn, no S&P 500 sector was spared in today's sell-off with ten sectors losing at least 3.0%, including 6.1% declines in the real estate and utilities sectors. The consumer staples sector performed relatively better with a 1.8% decline.
In M&A news, TMUS announced that it has officially completed its merger with S to create the new T-Mobile. The company also announced that with close of the merger, it has successfully completed its long-planned CEO transition from John Legere to Mike Sievert ahead of schedule.
Among the notable losers was XRX, -7.1% withdrawing its offer to acquire HPQ, -14.5%, MAR, -7.6% disclosing a data breach that affected 5.2 million customers, and M, -9.8% being removed from the S&P 500.
Shares of GM fell 7.3% after the automaker announced that it delivered 618,335 vehicles in the U.S. in the first quarter of 2020, a decrease of about 7% compared to a year ago. "The industry experienced significant declines in March due to the outbreak of COVID-19," noted GM in its sales announcement. Meanwhile, FCAU reported a 10% decline in its first quarter sales to 446,768 vehicles, also noting that "the strong momentum in January and February was more than offset by the negative economic impact of the coronavirus in March." Additionally, Toyota North America (TM) reported that sales in March fell 36.9% on a volume basis and 31.8% on a daily selling rate basis year-over-year.
Among the noteworthy gainers was KGC, which rose over 11% after it said its mines continue to operate and have not materially been impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. The company also withdrew guidance for fiscal 2020 in light of the outbreak. Also higher was AMRN, which surged 24.5% after Jefferies analyst Michael Yee hosted a conference call with life sciences patent lawyer Jacob Sherkow to discuss the Vascepa patent litigation. During the call, Sherkow said that he believes Amarin has a 50% chance to win an appeal and a more than 80% chance of getting an injunction.
In the oil market, the Wall Street Journal reported that Cherony7 is scheduled to meet Friday with the heads of some of the largest U.S. oil companies to discuss government measures to help the industry weather an unprecedented oil crash. The meeting is to take place at the White House and will include Trump, XOM Chief Executive Darren Woods, CVX Chief Executive Mike Wirth, OXY Chief Executive Vicki Hollub and Harold Hamm, executive chairman of CLR, according to the Journal.
Stocks in Asia were lower on Wednesday as a private survey showed Chinese manufacturing activity expanding slightly in March. In Japan, the Nikkei 225 led losses among the region’s major markets as it dropped 4.5% to close at 18,065.41.

Currency

The dollar advanced on Wednesday, with markets staring at what looked likely to be one of the worst economic contractions in decades as the world confronts the coronavirus pandemic. The U.S. Dollar Index rose 0.6% to 99.65, approaching yesterday's high.

Treasury

U.S. Treasuries ended the midweek session on a mixed note for the second day in a row, but shorter tenors underperformed today while longer tenors recovered yesterday's losses. The long end outperformed from the start after Treasury futures rallied overnight. That rally took place as most global equity markets faced renewed selling pressure to begin Q2. 10s and 30s built on their opening gains during the first two hours of trade, while the 2-yr note headed in the opposite direction before rallying toward its high into the close. Interestingly, the late push in the 2-yr note took place as longer tenors slipped to fresh lows.

Commodity

Gold prices firmed on Wednesday as investors sought safe-haven assets after somber U.S. economic data exacerbated fears of a economic downturn amid increasing lockdowns and other restrictions globally to combat the coronavirus pandemic.
U.S. grain and soybean futures fell in tandem with a sinking stock market on Wednesday, with wheat down more than 3% in its largest slide in more than a month after nearly two weeks of gains fueled by coronavirus grocery stockpiling. Soybeans fell more than 2%, the most in 2-1/2 weeks, and most corn contracts posted fresh life-of-contract lows as worries over burdensome supplies weighed on prices.

Crypto

Following Bitcoin’s bout of consolidation within the mid-$6,000 region, the benchmark cryptocurrency has seen a slight decline that has led it down towards the support that has been established around $6,000.

  8. On the 24 hour time frame, Dash beat 16 of the top 31 cryptos (52%).
* The 30 day SMA is the Simple Moving Average for the last 30 days. It is represented with the red line. The blue line is the daily Dash performance based on the price change over a one week period compared to the price change of other coins. Don’t invest more in crypto than you can afford to lose.
^ Dash vs the top 31 cryptos in the world. Even though the daily numbers went down (blue line) as predicted, we stayed above the moving average. But the moving average does look like it's getting tired, which is not a good sign.

Today was down and down hard. I predict up for tomorrow, but how far up??? This is the first actual “0” I recorded on the 24 hour data since early march when I started this metric.

Red line is the percentage of the top 31 cryptos that Dash beat on the 24 hour time frame.

Yesterday I predicted this chart would go down, but make a higher low. That’s exactly what it did and it still looks like an uptrend to me. Hey, I just bring the data….the data does what it does.

For Trading May 14th

DJIA -1315 From Yesterday’s High
POWELL Says, “No Neg Rates”
Today’s market was down from the start with PPI numbers and Jay Powell talking about the economy, negative rates, a slower than Trump promises recovery and just in general spooking anyone within the sound of his voice. The futures had been higher, but the rally in afterhours last night had pushed up the “fair value” to the point of a negative open. It only got worse throughout the day as the A/D and volume piled up on the downside finishing 8:1 down on the NYSE and 4:1 on the NAZ, but also on the NY the volume was a solid 7:1 down too. On the DJIA we had only one stock up, MRK, and only $ .74. The losers were spread around with UHN the biggest loser -70, GS -37, MMM -36 AND AXP -35 DPs. Financials, Energy, and Industrials were the weakest with Consumer staples and Utilities the “least weak.”
Our “open forum” on Discord, which allows me to interact with subscribers and others to allow direct questions and chart opinions on just about any stock, continues to grow with more participants every day. It is informative and allows me to share insights as the market is open and moving. The link is: https://discord.gg/ATvC7YZ and I will be there and active from before the open and all day. It’s a great place to share ideas and gain some insights, and we’ve grown to almost 1900 members. I also did this video titled “How to survive being an options trader and not blow up your account,” over the long weekend. I think it’s very informative as a guide to stock selection and option choices. The link is https://youtu.be/Y7H9RpWfLlo Enjoy!!
Tonight’s closing comment video https://youtu.be/vm3CUCipzT0
SECTORS: The news from UBER / GRUB was that there would be no deal at 2.1 shares of UBER for GRUB, but it was disclosed that UBER was considering a ratio of just 1.9:1, so UBER moved up $ .62 while GRUB was lower by $2.25 (3.73%). The good news was that UBER said there were $300 million in cost efficiencies in the deal for them. Not much of a dent in the $2.9 Billion they lost this quarter, but I guess you have to start somewhere.
Cisco reported a beat after the close and the stock, down from a high yesterday of $44.30 had closed $41.95 - $1.27 rallied on the news to $44.45 but closed $42.94 +.99.
ASCO, the Cancer Society annual meeting is in 2 weeks, and Allogene (ALLO) published their findings on a new therapy and the stock shot up from its close of $30.98 -1.56 (4.79%) to trade as high as $46.57 before closing $39.50 + 8.52. There will be a steady stream of these type of announcements in the next 10 days.
FOOD SUPPLY: was MIXED with TSN -1.58, BGS +1.50, FLO +1.29, CAG +.18, MDLZ -.84, KHC -.16, CALM -.55, JJSF -.65, SAFM -.94, LANC +.63, GO -.61, UNFI +7.22 (46.55%) on preliminary reporting of their Q3 sales and several upgrades lead the group, and BYND +1.07.
BIOPHARMA: was LOWER with BIIB -4.81, ABBV -1.38, REGN +19.46, ISRG -13.93, GILD -.61, MYL -.53, TEVA -.37, VRTX +1.43, BHC -.64, INCY -.29, ICPT -2.37, LABU -2.69 and IBB $130.00 -1.05 (.80%).
CANNABIS: This group was LOWER with TLRY -.21, CGC -1.07, CRON -.28, GWPH -3.95, ACB -.56 (8.67%), PYX -.04, NBEV -.065, CURLF +.06, KERN -.02 and MJ $10.96 -.59 (5.11%).
DEFENSE: was LOWER with LMT -5.51, GD -.52, TXT -1.63, NOC -5.05, BWXT -1.69, TDY -5.90, RTX -2.07, and ITA $141.70 -4.37 (2.99%).
RETAIL was LOWER with M +.06, JWN -.66, KSS -.31, DDS -1.19, JCP +.035 (17.65%), WMT +.42, TGT +.27, TJX -.76, RL -.52, USS -.74, LULU -11.22, TPR -1.21, CPRI -.62, and XRT $36.04 -.96 (2.59%).
FAANG and Big Cap: were LOWER with GOOGL -20.28, AMZN +15.05, AAPL -2.91, FB -3.80, NFLX +7.79, NVDA +3.29, TSLA -9.62, BABA -.01, BIDU -1.17, CMG -24.73, CAT -.46, BA -2.32, DIS -1.07 and XLK $91.83 -1.61 (1.72%).
FINANCIALS were LOWER with GS -4.85, JPM -2.83, BAC -.87, MS -1.24, C -1.40, PNC -3.21, AIG -1.45, TRV -4.12, AXP -4.17, V -1.16 and XLF $20.66 -.63 (2.96%).
OIL, $26.68 -.65. Oil was another short-range day that gave no hint of direction to come as we finished down a bit. The contract was rolled forward so the price is slightly higher but still unable to make any headway against overhead supply. All the stocks on my list were lower with XLE $35.73 -1.70 (4.54%).
METALS, GOLD: $1,716.40 +9.60. After the recent gains, Gold broke below $1,700 yesterday but failed to follow-thru to the downside and closed higher. The 5 and 20-day MAs look like they may cross to the upside, But it was still unable to break the downtrend line at $1,726. We are long NEM.
BITCOIN: closed $9,270 +400. After breaking out over $7500 we have moved as high as just over $10,000 before gapping down overnight to trade as low as $8,400 earlier this week. We continue to recover higher prices and we added 350 shares of GBTC yesterday @ $10.02 to our position of 400 @ $8.06, bringing our average price to $8.97. GBTC closed $11.21 + .58 today.
Tomorrow is another day.

DJIA Regains Losses
First 20-year Bond Auction since 1986
Today’s market was stronger, and we started up on the day and never looked back. The DJIA finished +369.04 (1.53%), NASDAQ +190.68 (2.08%), S&P 500 +48.67 (2.05%), the Russell +39.21 (3.0%). Market internals were positive with NYSE 2.5:1 and NASDAQ 2.4:1) with lower volume again. DJIA WAS 24 UP / 6 DOWN, with the biggest winners. The biggest winners were AAPL +41, DIS +39, V +30, MCD +29, CAT +25, GS +24 and CVX +23DPs, with no double-digit losers.
The Treasury brought back the 20-Yr. Bond auction for the first time since 1986, and it was greeted by a “Bid to Cover” of 2.5:1. This would be as if an IPO was coming with 10 million shares and that there were public orders for 25 million shares. It was received better than expected and prices remained stable to higher for the rest of the day. This was bullish for our position in the TLT call position we own.

SECTORS: The news was pretty scarce this morning and the market didn’t seem to need any excuses to move higher. The early morning earnings from TGT and LOW didn’t do much to help or harm the overall market. TGT and LOW were well withing expectations and slightly positive, but they went in opposite directions. TGT ended -3.52 (2.86%) while LOW traded higher by almost $6 at $122.69 but finished down at $116.99 +.12. The sector that got the most attention came to light in the afternoon when it was announced that there were many of the Chinese companies that have raised money here and trade on our exchanges do not meet either our listing requirements or our accounting standards. BABA and BIDU, both up dramatically this week on solid earnings got caught in the hoopla and fell well off their highs and closed basically unchanged.
FOOD SUPPLY: was MIXED with TSN +2.14, BGS -.69, FLO -.44, CAG -.31, MDLZ -.04, KHC +.41, CALM +1.04, JJSF +2.79, SAFM +2.69, LANC -.23, GO -.57, and PBJ $30.94 +.22 (.72%).

CANNABIS: This group was HIGHER with TLRY +.03, CGC +.10, CRON +.08, GWPH +3.55, ACB +2.00 on the news of their acquisition for stock of the CBD product company, Reliva, for $40million in stock. MJ was $13.24 +.58 (4.58%).
DEFENSE: was MIXED with LMT -7.48, GD +1.71, TXT +.84, NOC -6.03, BWXT -.18, TDY +5.17, RTX +.06, and ITA $150.07 +.93 (.62%).

OIL, $33.49 +1.53. Oil was higher today with the close right on the falling 50-day moving average. I thought that the most recent downside break occurred from just under $29.00 and may stop this move too, but as we saw, it went right through that level. All the stocks on my list were lower with XLE $39.35 +1.51 (3.99%).
METALS, GOLD: $1,752.10 +6.50. After breaking the downtrend line around $1727 we came all the way back to test it this morning, before we continued higher and closing strong.
BITCOIN: closed $9,570 -110. After breaking out over $7500 we have moved as high as just over $10,000 before gapping down overnight to trade as low as $8,400 earlier this week. We continue to recover higher prices and today broke above the $10030 close from which we gapped down on Monday. We added 350 shares of GBTC Wednesday @ $10.02 to our position of 400 @ $8.06, bringing our average price to $8.97. GBTC closed $11.23 -.15 today.

DJIA Rallies
POWELL on Sixty Minutes Set-up Rally
Today’s market was strong all night with Jay Powell speaking on Sixty Minutes last night, and it’s well beyond me what they took as so bullish. But clearly, they did. The Bonds losses were the market’s gains as stocks ran up and bonds were down over $2 1/2 right back to the bottom of the 8-week range. If you have anything in your name that sounds like labs, or pharma. Or therapeutics you were on the plus side of todays action. Forget all that stuff about real testing, get 8 people together and give them something and report it as a “trial.” That’s not to denigrate the results from several of the better names, but really folks, if it was so easy to find the right combination of drug, safety, and efficacy, 100,000 people wouldn’t be dead here by June 1. Yet, the DJIA was +1023 at the high and finished +911.95 (3.85%), NASDAQ +220.27 (2.44%), S&P 500 +90.21 (3.15%) and the Russell +76.70 (6.1%). Market internals were 8:1 on NYSE and 4:1 on NASDAQ, and volume was mediocre for a 900-point day. The DJIA was 29:1 with only MRK lower and BA the biggest gainer adding 140 DPs to the average. Pretty interesting since most airline executives say they don’t see things getting back to even 50% of normal for 2 years or more. Oh, yeah, then there’s that pesky issue with their 737 MAX being grounded already 3 times longer than they projected and still no realistic date in sight.

SECTORS: The news was all about COVID-19 cures and vaccines and tests today. You would think by some of the moves that the cure was here, tested, approved, and distributed. Unfortunately, that’s not the case. The size of the “trials” at some of these newsworthy companies are as small as 8 participants. While it’s great that they are taking place and are showing some promise, the end is out in the distance. Today’s rally bears no reality to what the economy still has in front of it, or what the end result of testing and treatment will make the public more comfortable enough to take any kind of public transportation or spend any time in a restaurant, bar, or movie theater. On the “more good news from UBER,” the stock was higher today closing $33.62 +1.15 (3.5%) and all they had to do was fire another (3700 last week) 3000 workers.

OIL, $31.65 +2.13. Oil was higher today with the close right on the falling 50-day moving average. I thought that the most recent downside break occurred from just under $29.00 and may stop this move too, but as we saw, it went right through that level. All the stocks on my list were higher with XLE $39.19 +3.20 (8.89%).
METALS, GOLD: $1,734.40 -21.90. After breaking the downtrend line around $17.27 we continued higher hitting $1746 before closing strong. Today’s trade up to 1,775 was a failure and we finished down on the day, we sold our long NEM.
BITCOIN: closed $9,745 +350. After breaking out over $7500 we have moved as high as just over $10,000 before gapping down overnight to trade as low as $8,400 earlier this week. We continue to recover higher prices and today broke above the $10030 close from which we gapped down on Monday. We added 350 shares of GBTC Wednesday @ $10.02 to our position of 400 @ $8.06, bringing our average price to $8.97. GBTC closed $11.41 + .36 today.
Tomorrow is another day.

Ouch!

For Trading March 10th
HISTORIC ACTION
Is Cruising Over?
Entire Yield Curve Under 1%
Today’s market was down from overnight with the futures hitting “limit down” before 4:00AM. The DJIA opened at 9:30, like always, but was halted within 4 minutes after hitting the “circuit-breakers” at -7% and trading was stopped for 15-minutes after which we reopened and headed lower again, touching -1946, and by noon we had recovered to only -1183, but by 3:00 we had made a new low of 23,706 -2158 before a rally to -1650 before another sell-off to close DJIA – 2013.76 (7.79%), NASDAQ -624.94 (7.29%), S&P 500 -225.81 (7.60%), the Russell -135.79 (9.37%, and DJ Transports, the biggest loser -874.21 (9.76%). Market internals were just short of absurd with numbers that I had to go to several sources to make sure were correct. NYSE raw numbers were 70:2973 or 43:1 and NASDAQ was 169:3190 or 19:1. The DJIA was 30:0 after WMT, which held on all day fell into the red. The biggest losers were not double, but triple-digit movers with BA -237, AAPL -155, GS -136, HD -123, CAT -117, and JPM -100DPs. The only single digit losers were VZ and WMT. It was an interesting day, but not one I’d like to see too often. The market was influenced by not only COVID-19, but also the fact that OPEC couldn’t come up with an agreement to limit oil production. Over the weekend Saudi Arabia declared a price war with Russia, the main opponent to any agreement. Interest rates continued to fall, and that, along with the oil news sent the banking names down dramatically. I’ll list those below in their sector.
Our “open forum” on Discord, which allows me to interact with subscribers and others to allow direct questions and chart opinions on just about any stock, continues to grow with more participants every day. It is informative and allows me to share insights as the market is open and moving. The link is: https://discord.gg/ATvC7YZ and I will be there and active from before the open and all day. It’s a great place to share ideas and gain some insights.
SECTORS: Other names in the news: It was a very tough day for everyone. While we did have a “Merger Monday” deal between AON and WLTW, neither of the participants made any headway. AON Plc, is buying Willis, Towers, Watson in the biggest insurance transaction ever and creating the world’s largest insurance broker, surpassing Marsh & McLennan (MMC) and worth about $80Billion.
There were a couple of names higher, just a few, and the main ones were in the auto parts segment with ORLY finishing $373.63 +5.55 (1.51%), AZO, $1113.69 +53.38 (5.03%) and AAP $130.36 +2.45 (1.92%). This group has been weak for the past 4-6 months. Also higher was discounter DLTR, $83.51 +3.27 (4.08%).
The Cruise lines continued to fall with all making new lows. RCL fell to $48.27 - 16.74 (25.75%) and down from $135 in January. CCL fell to $21.74 -5.41 (19.93%) and down from $52, while NCLH was $19.81 – 7.29 (26.9%) and down from $60. This is absolutely uninvestable. There will clearly be a point at which the shorts cover, but this group is dead money for a while.
In more COVID-19 news, Inovio (INO) which moved from $2.40 to $16.00 on the news that it would start human trials of its vaccine in April. This morning at $19.36 before collapsing all the way back to $8.53 before closing $9.83 -4.26 (30.23%).
But the HOMERUN OF THE DAY was another name I talked about in this space, AIM Immuno-Tech, Inc (AIM). The company said that its drug, Ampligen will begin testing at National Inst. Of Infectious Diseases in Japan that could play an important role in developing a protective early-onset therapy for COVID-19. The stock has been reverse split both 1:12 in 2016 and more recently 1:44 last June and traded under $ .40 had moved up to $3.50 this month and traded up on the news finishing $6.10 +4.00 (190%) and is continuing in extended hours to $8.75 and is currently $7.69 up an additional $1.59 for a total gain of $5.59 (266%). Quite a highlight on a dismal day.
BIOPHARMA: was LOWER with all names falling hard with BIIB -20.76, ABBV -3.55, REGN -20.58, ISRG -44.48, MYL -1.19, TEVA -1.42, VRTX -13.85, BHC -2.69, INCY -4.42, ICPT -6.88, LABU -11.47 (24.95%), and IBB $109.80 -8.23 (6.97%).
CANNABIS: stocks were LOWER with TLRY -2.47 (24.65%) and KERN -2.58 (37.34%) and none down less than 7.48%. The ETF, MJ $11.74 -1.36 (10.38%).
DEFENSE: was LOWER with some major loses by LMT -31.47, RTN -14.83, GD -13.01, TXT -5.48 (15.26%), UTX -12.48, NOC -15.58, BWXT -5.14, TDY -33.73, and ITA was $174.00 -21.04 (10.79%).
RETAIL was LOWER with major losses. The brands were the biggest losers on the day. M-1.12, JWN -1.88, KSS -2.84, DDS -2.37, JCP - .015, WMT -1.17, TGT -1.92, TJX -1.35, RL -10.78 (10.19%), UAA -1.46 (11.56%), LULU -22.44 (10.27%), TPR -3.35 (15.44%), CPRI -3.13 (13.65%) and XRT $37.01 -2.12 (5.42%).
FAANG and Big Cap: were LOWER with GOOGL -80.14, AMZN -96.19, AAPL -21.42, FB -11.40, NFLX -22.48, NVDA -21.04, IBM -10.38, TSLA -92.48 (13.01%), BABA -7.24, BIDU -8.52, BA -36.22 (13.81%) on continuing problems with the 737MAX and the general market, CAT -16.42 (13.52%), DIS -10.55, and XLK $82.84 -6.07 (6.83%).
FINANCIALS were LOWER with most down over 10% with the market and softness in rates with GS -19.14, JPM -13.53, BAC -3.59, MS -4.35, C -9.34, PNC -15.48, AIG -5.13, TRV -8.54, AXP -9.94, and XLF $22.80 -2.75 (10.76%).
OIL, $31.13 -10.15 (24.58%) The stocks were LOWER with the dramatic fall on the “price war” between the Saudi’s and Putin. It’s difficult to even relate to the prices I’m seeing. In August when OXY bought APC for $57billion OXY was just over $50. Tonight it closed $12.51 –14.35 (53.43%) and the COMBINED market-cap is only $11.4Billion. The rest of the list was equally bad with CVX -13.42, XOM -4.94, MRO 4.06 -2.77 (40.56%), MPC -5.43, APA 10.22 -10.48 (50.6%), BP -5.66 and XLE $34.98 -7.52 (17.69%).
METALS, GOLD: $1,675.70 +3.30. After the rebound, and the overnight move to $1,704.30 we sold off as liquidation hit even the yellow metal. We managed to close up on the day, but it was a disappointment just the same. Our $1.40 position in the GLD calls finished $1.65 +.11.
BITCOIN: closed $7,850 -1,315. We broke to the downside overnight and fell to a low of $7,640, which closed a gap left on the breakout back in January. While I want to add the 350 sold just over a week ago, I want to wait and see some stabilization. We did have 2 subscribers add to new positions under the close today. But we still own 400 GBTC with an average of $8.06. GBTC closed $8.86 – 1.72 today.
Tomorrow is another day.

For Trading May 15th

DJIA Reverses 835
POWELL Says, “No Neg Rates”, BUT
Today’s market was down from the start with the initial and continuing claims numbers, but it only lasted for 45 minutes before the market started back to the unchanged mark. We chopped around until 1:00PM and then we were above the prior close to stay. We finished +377.37 (1.62%), NASDAQ +80.55 (.91%), S&P 500 +32.50 (1.15%), the Russell +4.30 (.32%) and the DJ Transports +37.54 (.48%) and still -471 (5.65%) for the week. Market internals were anemic for an 835 rally at just over 1:1 on both exchanges. DJIA was 25 / 5 higher with no losses of over $3 DPs while gainers were UNH +86, AXP +39, HD +29, V +26, and JPM +24 DPs.
While Jay Powell said, “not looking at negative rates,” they really have no control over the markets. As our rates remain higher than others, we continue to be a magnet for the massive amount of money looking for a home. He may not be considering them, but he can’t really enforce the issue without some very unattractive methods of monetary controls, which, BTW, never work.
Our “open forum” on Discord, which allows me to interact with subscribers and others to allow direct questions and chart opinions on just about any stock, continues to grow with more participants every day. It is informative and allows me to share insights as the market is open and moving. The link is: https://discord.gg/ATvC7YZ and I will be there and active from before the open and all day. It’s a great place to share ideas and gain some insights, and we’ve grown to almost 1900 members. I also did this video titled “How to survive being an options trader and not blow up your account,” over the long weekend. I think it’s very informative as a guide to stock selection and option choices. The link is https://youtu.be/Y7H9RpWfLlo Enjoy!!
Tonight’s closing comment video https://youtu.be/MKauYKKMqeo
SECTORS: The news Taiwan Semi (TSM) that they were building an “advanced chip” facility in Arizona helped the group early and it finished $52.10 +1.18 (2.3%). AMAT followed with earnings after the close and while they were somewhat a disappointment, the stock, which closed $54.43 +2.94 (5.71%), it moved up to $57.88 and finished $57.01 +2.58.
Last night I mentioned ASCO, the Cancer Society annual meeting is in 2 weeks, and Allogene (ALLO) published their findings on a new therapy and the stock shot up from its close of $30.98 -1.56 (4.79%) to trade as high as $46.57 before closing $39.50 + 8.52. Today it continued higher and finished $42.12 +11.14 (35.96%). There will be a steady stream of these type of announcements in the next 10 days.

ARK. Here's what's it's all about, what's been going on, and what's coming. [Explain Like I'm Busy]

Dude, it said explain like I'm busy I'm not going to read all this

No problem. Check out these hand-picked relevant ARK Crypto Podcast episodes. Learn while you listen, drive to work or home, cook a steak, give your dog a bath, etc.
If you have decided to read all this, thanks, keep reading for a concise breakdown!

So what's the current big thing going on with ARK right NOW?

ARK.io has recently announced on both its blog and its Twitter that ARK Core v2.6 is coming to Mainnet February 11th. The iteration of 2.6 may sound anticlimactic, but it's far from that. Core v2.6 is the biggest upgrade to date- even bigger than the total Core overhaul performed for v2.0, deployed late 2018.
The new version brings new transaction types to the ARK Public Network, including types that will play a role in creating an ecosystem of linked chains. This ecosystem of linked chains will have the ARK Public Network in the center of the action, storing chain details and allowing for chain discovery.
These new transaction types include:
Multipayments — sending to multiple ARK addresses, while just initiating one transaction, saves time and cost
Multisignatures — you can now get all of the benefits of multisignatures where more than one user can propose or spend funds depending on the predefined terms (eg. 2 out of 3 users needed to successfully send tokens, vote, …)
IPFS — register IPFS compliant hashes on the ARK blockchain within Desktop Wallet.
Business & Bridgechain registrations — you can now register your business and bridgechain on the blockchain and soon, you will be able to get verified via our Marketplace to get access to some exciting new features.
Delegate resignation — delegates who don’t want to be voted for anymore can now opt-out of this by simply initiating delegate resignation.
Additionally, the Core v2.6 improves security against double-spend attacks by implementing nonces. Also, massive enhancements were made to the GTI or Generic Transaction Interface, a critical tool for developers who wish to develop decentralized applications.

What is ARK's unique approach to current issues plaguing the blockchain industry?

ARK empowers everyone, regardless of their aim or technical background, to quickly and easily leverage blockchain technology. In the current hype-driven blockchain landscape, ARK acts as a beacon for individuals, groups, and enterprises seeking to apply blockchain technology to both reach their individual goals and affect change in their local community. ARK’s uniquely simple technology stack allows almost anyone to create and deploy standalone blockchains for any use case with an intuitive graphical user interface and experience. These newly created blockchains also known as bridgechains will have the ability to interoperate through ARK SmartBridge Technology. ARK is also reinventing smart contracts with ARK Logic, a collection of tools including custom transaction types, templates, and plugins. ARK Logic brings security, adaptability, and scalability to decentralized computing workflows. Most importantly, the ARK Ecosystem fosters a growing international community of developers, node operators, blockchains, businesses, and enthusiasts who collectively breathe life into this disruptive technology. Get into the interactive whitepaper here.

Tell me about the ARK Public Network

Ok, no problem. Since coming online on March 21, 2017, the APN has operated as a P2P cryptocurrency with fast block times of 8 seconds and low dynamic fees (near a penny and somewhat novel for a DPoS blockchain). However, the end goal of the APN far exceeds that of just a cryptocurrency that is faster and cheaper to use than Bitcoin. I'll explain further in a minute.
The network, as mentioned, is set up as Delegated Proof-of-Stake. This means forging delegates are deemed worthy to secure the chain and add blocks to it by the holders of the ARK token, which vote for delegates using their ARK as vote weight. ARK remains in users' control at all times, and the top 51 delegates in vote weight enter forging status. The network awards each delegate 2 ARK per block (~12,705 ARK/mo) for services rendered. This continues ad infinitum resulting in a declining inflation rate each year (relative to total supply). When users add or remove ARK from a voting wallet address, vote weight adjusts automatically and they don't need to vote again. Voting continues even if user's wallet is offline.
The main uses of ARK as the cryptoasset of the ARK Public Network besides being a P2P cryptocurrency include:
If you're interested in more details about APN uses, check this direct link to that section of whitepaper.

Is team good?

Yes, team good. Team very good. General sentiment among ARK team members is that ARK is a dream project to work on, and this motivates them to do great work on a consistent basis as the ARK technology stack progresses. Very recently, ARK hired an additional half dozen people in various departments, including marketing department. This brings ARK team total to over three dozen experts. The ARK business entity is also well funded with around 10 years of budget. The ARK business entity spends funds in a very sensible manner compared to some other projects who spend with insufficient foresight or discretion.
Members of the board are thoughtful and deliberate, and the CEO FX Thoorens has been hard at work putting a spotlight on ARK, showing an 'intermeshing' of ARK with the global regulatory landscape in regards to crypto. Recently, ARK became a founding member of ADAN, a professional association based in France created to help structure and develop the digital assets industry. Other members include Consensys France and Ledger. ADAN will consult with public authorities, industry leaders and private bodies to promote the use of digital assets and all activities in this sector. This includes exchange platforms, brokers, hardware, protocols, decentralized applications and blockchain technology platforms. Hear FX Thoorens talk more about this in this podcast episode.
The ARK business entity is located in France, but the ARK team is distributed across 10+ countries and multiple continents.

What's going to happen?

Cool stuff. Organizations and open source projects have been stumbling across ARK and really like what they see. Multiple projects are working with ARK technology and are at various stages of development, but since you're busy, I'll highlight the project nOS which recently launched their public testnet and uses ARK technology for their blockchain. nOS also has great things to say about ARK that you can hear in this podcast episode or watch in this video.
We believe that as more businesses, organizations, and open source projects start looking around for blockchain solutions, they will also enjoy ARK's simplicity, flexibility, and feature set. Our powerful technology stack is backed up by a recently upgraded documentation hub for developers.
The product we have that makes it very easy for projects to join the ARK Ecosystem is called the ARK Deployer, which you can learn about in this two minute video. It allows developers from all walks of life to create, customize and launch a standalone blockchain in three simple steps. In the near future, what's going to happen is a big improvement to the Deployer. The ARK Deployer will get an upgraded and more powerful user interface that also facilitates chain management post-launch, as well as interface directly with cloud providers like Digital Ocean to launch genesis node and peers in background. This would allow for a massive leap forward in our vision of 'Point. Click. Blockchain.'
ARK.io is also working on a Marketplace for developers, where custom plugins and tools developed by both ARK.io as well as third parties can be acquired for assembling blockchains much easier. Imagine a wordpress-type environment where you can create a super-powerful and customized blockchain by connecting Legos together. In the same way that early World Wide Web needed WordPress/Squarespace style tools to bring the technology to every business or organization, we believe that this need will be out there for blockchain technology as this new decade progresses.
There is more cool stuff that is going to happen, but I'll wrap it up there for now.

After reading all this stuff, what is it you want me to do?

Well, not make any financial decisions, because that is not the purpose of this information. However, as a developer, there's a lot of interesting things you should know and may want to consider doing. The ARK technology stack uses TypeScript and other JS-style frameworks, so if you know those, you should get excited.
Here's some additional less 'developery' stuff you can do:
Thanks for coming along for the ride of this post. ARK has been out here, it's out here, and it's going to continue to be out here, doing its part to make sure everybody knows that blockchains are, in fact, a thing.

Dash Competitive basket index for Wednesday, 29 April, 2020. As predicted yesterday, Dash did have a correction in terms of the CBI. But, if you had to have a correction, this was a good one.

Dash Competitive basket index for Wednesday, 29 April, 2020. As predicted yesterday, Dash did have a correction in terms of the CBI. But, if you had to have a correction, this was a good one.
Yesterday I said I anticipated a correction for Dash, and that’s exactly what we got in terms of the Competitive Basket Index. But…...if we had to have a correction, this was the best kind to get. In 24 hours, Dash went from $82 to $85, a gain of 3.7% in a day. But Bitcoin just took off and went from $7,780 to $8,400 in that same 24 hours. That’s a gain of nearly 8%. The Alt coin market will probably follow along in the next few days.

  1. Dash outperformed 4 of the 19 cryptos listed above us on CoinPaprika (21% win rate). The 30 day SMA* is 50%
  2. Dash outperformed 2 of the 10 cryptos ranked below us (20% win rate). The 30 day SMA* is 57%.
  3. In total, Dash outperformed 6 of the top 29 cryptos (421% win rate). The 30 day SMA* is 52%.
  4. Bitcoin dominance zoomed up 5/10ths to 63.4%
  5. 10 of the top 29 cryptos beat Bitcoin (35%).
  6. On the 7 day time frame, 27 of the top 30 cryptos (90%) were in the green.
  7. On the 24 hour time frame, 30 of the top 30 (100%) cryptos were in the green.
  8. On the 24 hour time frame, Dash beat 7 of the top 29 cryptos (24%).
* The 30 day SMA is the Simple Moving Average for the last 30 days. It is represented with the red line. The blue line is the daily Dash performance based on the price change over a one week period. As always, this is not investment advise. Do your own homework. All crypto is inherently and unavoidably risky. Don’t invest more in crypto than you can afford to lose.
^ Dash vs the 19 cryptos listed above us. Not great, but tune in tomorrow.

^ Dash vs the 10 cryptos listed below us. Yes, also bad. Is this a higher low, or an end of the uptrend?? Tune in tomorrow

^ Dash vs the top 29 cryptos in the world. Same same


The red line is the percentage of the top 30 Alt Coins that were in the green (price went up) on the 24 hour time frame.
The blue line is the percentage of the top 30 Alt Coins that were in the green (price went up) on the 7 day time frame.
Both time frames still looking very strong for the Alt coin rally. Don’t forget, Bitcoin is just another alt coin.

Top-60 bitcoin/crypto quotes of the last decade, because reading them makes you feel good, and it feels good to feel good. Also one trading tip

First, number one trading tip for the next decade (in my opinion):

XXA/XLM trading pair, price is 5.20 XLM (0.3588 USD). Ixinium XXA is so undervalued right now. Target profit +300% for this year. Backet by precious metals. Precious metals 100% insured by Lloyd's of London. Target price levels for this year because of precious metals base value:
12.0 XLM (0.83 USD, +130.6%)
18.8 XLM (1.30 USD, +261.5%)
23.2 XLM (1.60 USD, +345.9%)
Price up since Coinmarketcap listing 7 days ago: 47.26%
XXA/XLM trading pair on Stellarport and StellarX exchanges with zero trading fee. It's not too late to become an Ixinium whale :)

My favorite bitcoin/crypto quotes, last ten years:

  1. Came into Bitcoin for the short-term dollar gains. Stayed in Bitcoin for the long-term bitcoin gains.

  1. Fiat addicts you to spending. Bitcoin addicts you to saving.

  1. There are 1,900x more dollars in existence today than there was less than a hundred years ago. Bitcoin has no top because fiat has no bottom.

  1. Most investors would be better off if they lost the password to their account and couldn’t log in for a few years.

  1. How I learned to stop worrying and love the bear market: Value your wealth in bitcoin not fiat.

  1. If I had a Bitcoin for every time someone asked me if I know who Satoshi is... I'd be Satoshi.

  1. Every second bitcoin stays out of the spotlight, is another second we get to build unopposed. We can't take this time for granted.

  1. You can't be excited about Bitcoin and fear the bear market. It's like being excited for Christmas but fearing winter. The bear market is a natural part of Bitcoin's mass adoption.

  1. Crypto is the only money that works on the internet. But it's also the only money that works in space. It's really expensive to bring gold bars to Mars.

  1. The fact that your normie friends don't think Bitcoin is cool yet is the reason why there is still massive upside potential.

  1. Feel free to print (fiat money) as much as you need, as I am already all in crypto.

  1. Satoshi walks in to a bar. Nobody knows.

  1. Fiat supply: unlimited. Gold supply: unknown. Bitcoin supply: 21 million.

  1. Most people still don’t know anything about Bitcoin except its price. But they don’t know why Bitcoin has a price in the first place. Hence the skepticism. When you don’t know why something has a price, it is impossible to understand how much it can really be worth.

  1. There can never be more than 17 million people who own 1 full bitcoin. But in practice, there will be far fewer.

  1. Internet allowed you to never have to go to the library. Bitcoin will allow you to never have to go to the bank.

  1. Google's CEO is Indian
Nokia's CEO is Indian
Adobe's CEO is Indian
Amazon's BOD is Indian
MasterCard's CEO is Indian
Microsoft's CEO is Indian
Pepsico's CEO was Indian indra nooyi
Nasa has 58% Indian employees
Do something towards $Btc bans in India! ENOUGH IS ENOUGH.

  1. When you trade trends, you can be the last person to join the trend & first person to leave the trend & you can still outperform everyone else in long term simply because others will keep guessing the tops & bottoms while you will keep riding confirmed trends.

  1. You don't need to fomo into positions, if you accumulate early.

  1. If your "financial advisor" doesn't advise you to buy crypto, fire 'em.

  1. Bitcoin doesn't care about your feelings. It also doesn't care about your gender, ethnicity, sexual preference or religion. Bitcoin just is.

  1. Want to prove to an investor that your crypto product is needed? Get people to use it. It is really hard to argue with usage.

  1. Is it possible to be a BTC maximalist and be Vegan? Asking for a friend..

  1. If you think that bitcoin is not going to the mainstream, think again.

  1. Most people don’t know what money is. This is why Bitcoin is still underrated. First, learn what money is. Then, you will be able to leverage the massive opportunity that is Bitcoin.

  1. If you think the people in charge know exactly what they’re doing, do nothing & continue on with your life. If you think those in charge may NOT actually be as smart as they want us to think, buy a little Bitcoin. The status quo is a bet on humans, but Bitcoin is a bet on math.

  1. Bitcoin is only risky to those who don’t understand it.

  1. Short term volatility doesn’t phase long term investors.

  1. If you manage your risk, your profits will take care of itself. If you don't, your parents will take care of you.

  1. For every person in the world, there are only 0.00225764 bitcoins.

  1. If you did your research, this bear market was expected. Bear or bull market, it’s business as usual for true Bitcoiners.

  1. For Bitcoin to succeed, the whole world doesn't need to understand its value proposition. Those who do will profit from its monetization. Those who don't will naturally adopt this better money.
Economic reality imposes itself onto the world whether you're aware of it or not.

  1. This is not financial advice. This is life advice. Buy Bitcoin.

  1. If Banks & Fiat are horse carriages, then Bitcoin isn't merely cars, it's fucking teleportation.

  1. How Bitcoin enables global prosperity:
Bitcoin makes you future-oriented
Bitcoin makes delaying gratification easier
Bitcoin makes saving & capital accumulation easier
Bitcoin makes investing easier
Bitcoin makes global trade easier
Bitcoin makes advancing civilization easier

  1. Bitcoin is the ultimate marshmallow experiment. People who are able to hodl for longer will tend to have better life outcomes.

  1. Other than your human time, Bitcoin is the scarcest thing on earth. Human time will become more abundant as life expectancy increases. Bitcoin, however, will only become scarcer.

  1. The energy cost of Bitcoin mining will pale in comparison to the improvements in the world’s productivity and prosperity that are enabled by Bitcoin.

  1. Pros of bear market:
-You can buy more Bitcoin
-Devs more productive than ever
-Weak hands driven out+hodler base strengthened
-Focus on fundamentals, not short-term price
-Overvalued shitcoins deflated
-Critical Infrastructure being built out, making next bull run even fiercer

  1. The more productive we are during the bear market, the harder Bitcoin will pump in the next bull market. Ignore short-term price action. Focus on Bitcoin fundamentals.

  1. Bitcoin bear market is the best time for buying, learning and staying miles ahead of the normies who will once again be late to the game and will buy the top.

  1. Before you invest in Bitcoin, invest in educating yourself about Bitcoin. Understanding Bitcoin will make your conviction much stronger and enable you to maximize your gains.

  1. There are 2 ways you can adopt Bitcoin:
  2. Early on & willingly-> result: allows you to capture upside as Bitcoin grows & becomes widely used or
  3. Much later & not having another choice-> result: failing to capture most upside from Bitcoin's monetization.
The choice is yours.

  1. The overwhelming majority of highly intelligent people I talk to still have no idea why Bitcoin is valuable. We are extremely early. The ability to identify opportunity before others and take advantage of the information asymmetry is key.

  1. Bitcoin will succeed with or without you. Don’t be left behind.

  1. In the 90s people couldn’t imagine that the Internet would replace newspapers, TV, phone calls, shops & many other things. Today, people can't imagine Bitcoin becoming mass adopted money. Bitcoin will do to money what Internet did to information. And money is a way bigger market.

  1. If every millionaire in the US wanted to have just 1 bitcoin they wouldn't be able to. There will always be fewer bitcoins than there are millionaires in the US (let alone the whole world). Ignore this at your own risk.

  1. The corporations & institutions that stand to lose from Bitcoin adoption are made up of individuals who stand to benefit massively from Bitcoin adoption. Realizing that every group or entity is made up of self-motivated individuals is key to realizing why Bitcoin will succeed.

  1. Bitcoin self-selects for people with:
* Low time preference
* Long attention span
* Commitment
* Authenticity
* Patience
* Persistence
* Ability to focus
* Ability to go against the mainstream
Bitcoin is a marathon, not a sprint.

  1. If you don’t have a deep understanding of:
  2. What money is
  3. Functions of money
  4. Monetary history
  5. Money properties that fulfill its various functions
Then don’t you dare criticize Bitcoin.

  1. Bitcoin doesn’t care:
- what color you are
- what sex you are
- what age you are
- what your religion is
- who your parents are
- which university/school you went to
- who you’re friends with
- how expensive your lawyer is
Bitcoin cannot discriminate.

  1. You chase money every single day. You stress over money all your life. You worship money.
But you have no idea why money is valuable. Money controls your life because you have no understanding of what it is. Once you ask yourself “What is money?”, Bitcoin will make sense.

  1. Satoshi Nakamoto deserves:
- Nobel Prize in Economics
- Nobel Peace Prize
- Nobel Prize in Physics
But thankfully the last thing Satoshi needs is the validation of the establishment.

  1. Bitcoin is doing better than corporations & altcoins though it never had:
- CEO
- Marketing
- Salaries
- ICO
- Partnerships
- Headquarters
- Customer support
Bitcoin is an emergent superorganism. Members contribute according to their ability, driven by passion more than greed.

  1. July 2011 - $31
- “Damn, I should've bought bitcoin earlier”
Apr 2013 - $266
- “Damn, I should've bought bitcoin earlier”
Nov 2013 - $1,242
- “Damn, I should've bought bitcoin earlier”
Dec 2017 - $19,891
- “Damn, I should've bought bitcoin earlier”
2022-2023 - ...
- “Damn..”

  1. Successful crypto trading boils down to correctly predicting how the whales will torture the normies next.

  1. Bitcoin doesn’t wait for anyone. It’s up to you if you want to learn this the hard way.

  1. Percentage of world using the Internet in 1995 = 0.4%
Percentage of world using the Internet in 2019 = 58.8%
Bitcoin is to money what the Internet is to information.
Percentage of world using Bitcoin in 2019 = 0.4%
If you thought you are late to Bitcoin, think again.

  1. I didn't choose the dollar.
I didn't choose the euro.
I didn't choose the pound.
I didn't choose the yen.
I didn't choose the ruble.
I didn't choose fractional reserve banking.
I didn't choose central banks.
I didn't choose quantitative easing.
I choose Bitcoin.

  1. Using Bitcoin
  2. Download wallet
  3. Receive funds
Using Banks
  1. Go to location
  2. Identification card
  3. Social Security #
  4. Hidden fees
  5. Initial deposit
  6. Proof of address
  7. Unreadable legal docs
  8. Wait a week for your funds
Which one will the next generation choose?

Many of these wisdom quotes are from the author of the new book called “This ₿ook Will Save You Time”, and he's donating all of the proceeds from the book sales to a Bitcoin developer.

For Trading April 14th

For Trading April 14th
Stocks Decline, Finally
Oil Fails Again on Cutbacks
Today was a down day from the beginning and I’m trying to get this done by starting early since we’ve already lost power once from the storms that decimated the southeast yesterday. To begin, the DJIA was weak from the start and a downgrade on CAT by Bank America. That sent the Dow lower than the other indexes and currently we are down just under 2% while NASDAQ is the strength with AZMN, TSLA, and NFLX the leaders, and S&P 500 following the DJIA but only 1.4%. Well, the power came back on and I’ll do this as fast as possible because the storm is going to last a few hours. DJIA -328.60 (1.39%, NASDAQ +38.84 (.48%), S&P 500 -28.19 (1.01%), the big loser was the Russell -34.68 (2.78%) and the DJ Transports -201.34 (2.44%). The big loser was CAT leading the DJIA -71 DPs and no triple-digits and the totals with 21 down and 9 higher, led by AAPL +36 DPs. The big gainers were the FAANG, listed below in Sectors. Market internals were in line with the loss with A/D 3:1 on NYSE and 3:2 on NASDAQ. Volume was light again and consumer discretionary strong and real estate and financials weak.
Our “open forum” on Discord, which allows me to interact with subscribers and others to allow direct questions and chart opinions on just about any stock, continues to grow with more participants every day. It is informative and allows me to share insights as the market is open and moving. The link is: https://discord.gg/ATvC7YZ and I will be there and active from before the open and all day. It’s a great place to share ideas and gain some insights, and we’ve grown to almost 1800 members. I also did this video titled “How to survive being an options trader and not blow up your account,” over the long weekend. I think it’s very informative as a guide to stock selection and option choices. The link is https://youtu.be/Y7H9RpWfLlo Enjoy!!
SECTORS: On the “I have no idea this was going on” group there were 2 big winners today. One I mentioned earlier was Independence Contract Drilling (ICD) on Thursday finished $6.25 +3.85 (160%), finished today $12.93 +6.68 (106%) on essentially no news except the “trade halted, trade resumed.”
But the HOMERUN OF THE DAY was SCWorx (WORX) on the news that it got a 48 million COVID-19 Rapid Testing units over the next 24 weeks. I mentioned it in our Discord room this morning when it had a high of $9.95 and was trading around $6.25, but that was just the beginning. By the end of the day it had traded $14.88 and finished the day $12.02 +9.77 (434.22%). Not bad, definitely a HR.
BIOPHARMA: was HIGHER with BIIB +1.89, ABBV +.85, REGN +4.06, ISRG -9.26, MYL -.02, TEVA +.19, VRTX +5.67, BHC -.17, INCY +1.20, ICPT +.09, LABU +.02 and IBB $114.49 +.52 (.46%).
CANNABIS: This group was MIXED with TLRY -.28, CGC +.01, CRON -.01, GWPH +1.22, ACB -.10, PYX +.03, NBEV -.15, CURLF -.15, KERN +.73 (10.8%), and MJ $11.45 unchanged.
DEFENSE: was LOWER with LMT -1.06, RTX -2.71, GD -3.11, TXT -1.14, NOC +2.20, BWXT -.93, TDY -8.82, and ITA $150.63 -4.86 (3.13%).
RETAIL: was LOWER with M -.52, JWN -.96, KSS -1.11, DDS -2.25, JCP -.02, WMT +3.44, TGT +1.12, TJX -.81, RL -4.46 (5.55%), UAA -.58 (5.56%), LULU -4.24, TPR -.90, CPRI -.24 and XRT $33.28 -.27 (.80%).
FAANG and Big Cap: were HIGHER with several big moves vs. the overall market, with GOOGL +3.84, AMZN +132.24 (6.47%), AAPL +5.26, FB -.12, NFLX +28.36 (7.65%), NVDA +7.41, TSLA +96.02 (16.76%), BABA =3.07, BIDU -.30, BA -3.72, CAT biggest loser in the Dow -10.58 (8.46%), DIS -1.18, and XLK $85.50 +.30 (.35%).
FINANCIALS were LOWER with GS -4.76, JPM -4.16, BAC -.84, MS -1.49, C -.56, PNC -4.23, AIG -.82, TRV -3.32, AXP -4.03 and XLF $22.49 -.89 (3.81%).
OIL, $22.41 -.35. Oil started last night with a 5-minute bar that started with the open @ 24.74 +2.00 and within that first 5-minutes made the high $24.74 and made the low of the day $22.03. The move at the open was influenced by the supposed deal to cut production, but quickly fell away. After an attempt at 24.57 failed we worked lower and a final try in the afternoon at$24.00 it fell back to finish down on the day. Stocks were mixed to lower with the XLE $38.88 -.03 (.09%).
METALS, GOLD: $1,761.40 + 8.60. After the recent gains, Gold broke solidly above $1,700 and traded as high as $1772 today. Today was a major move to the upside and the close is the highest since September 2012 and sets up a move towards the highs at $1,800 from 2011.
BITCOIN: closed $6810 -480. After we traded in the uptrend, I mentioned this weekend that I felt we’d have to test 67.50 and today we hit 6550 before turning back up. While I want to add the 350 sold just over a week ago, I want to wait and see some stabilization. We still own 400 GBTC with an average of $8.06. GBTC closed $7.27 -.53 today.
Tomorrow is another day.

Dash Competitive Basket index for Tuesday, 14 April, 2020. Dash CBI still looking strong.

Dash Competitive Basket index for Tuesday, 14 April, 2020. Dash CBI still looking strong.
Dash again posted good numbers on the Competitive Basket Index. Another promising short term sign is that 87% of the top 31 cryptos were in the green on the 24 hour time frame. The CBI data is based on price changes over a 7 day time frame.

  1. Dash outperformed 14 of the 20 cryptos listed above us on CoinPaprika (70% win rate). The 30 day SMA* is 52%
  2. Dash outperformed 10 of the 10 cryptos ranked below us (100% win rate). Another clean sweep. The 30 day SMA* is 64%.
  3. In total, Dash outperformed 24 of the top 30 cryptos (80% win rate). The 30 day SMA* is 56%.
  4. Bitcoin dominance just sat there at 63.3%, unchanged again.
  5. 14 of the top 30 cryptos beat Bitcoin (47%).
  6. On the 7 day time frame, only 2 of the top 31 cryptos (7%) were in the green.
  7. On the 24 hour time frame, 27 of the top 31 (87%) cryptos were in the green.
  8. On the 24 hour time frame, Dash beat 12 of the top 30 cryptos (40%).
* The 30 day SMA is the Simple Moving Average for the last 30 days. It is represented with the red line. The blue line is the daily Dash performance based on the price change over a one week period. As always, this is not investment advise. Do your own homework. All crypto is risky. Don’t invest more in crypto than you can afford to lose.
^ Dash vs the 20 cryptos listed above us. Down a bit, but still above the moving avg. and well above the 50% win rate. Decision time.

^ Dash vs the 10 cryptos listed below us. We crushed the 10 Below club again. This chart actually looks bullish.

^ Dash vs the top 30 cryptos in the world. Still looks like an uptrend, but of course the whole crypto market can turn on a dime.


Red line is the % of the top 30 cryptos that were in the green on the 24 hour column on CoinPaprika.
Blue line is the % of the top 30 cryptos that were in the green on the 7 day column.
Looks like more of that predictable volatility. The 24 hour line zoomed up again, which is good. But, the 24 hour line does look like it is making a series of lower lows and lower highs. This is also reflected in the longer time frame blue line. Tune in tomorrow!

Historic!

For Trading March 10th
HISTORIC ACTION
Is Cruising Over?
Entire Yield Curve Under 1%
Today’s market was down from overnight with the futures hitting “limit down” before 4:00AM. The DJIA opened at 9:30, like always, but was halted within 4 minutes after hitting the “circuit-breakers” at -7% and trading was stopped for 15-minutes after which we reopened and headed lower again, touching -1946, and by noon we had recovered to only -1183, but by 3:00 we had made a new low of 23,706 -2158 before a rally to -1650 before another sell-off to close DJIA – 2013.76 (7.79%), NASDAQ -624.94 (7.29%), S&P 500 -225.81 (7.60%), the Russell -135.79 (9.37%, and DJ Transports, the biggest loser -874.21 (9.76%). Market internals were just short of absurd with numbers that I had to go to several sources to make sure were correct. NYSE raw numbers were 70:2973 or 43:1 and NASDAQ was 169:3190 or 19:1. The DJIA was 30:0 after WMT, which held on all day fell into the red. The biggest losers were not double, but triple-digit movers with BA -237, AAPL -155, GS -136, HD -123, CAT -117, and JPM -100DPs. The only single digit losers were VZ and WMT. It was an interesting day, but not one I’d like to see too often. The market was influenced by not only COVID-19, but also the fact that OPEC couldn’t come up with an agreement to limit oil production. Over the weekend Saudi Arabia declared a price war with Russia, the main opponent to any agreement. Interest rates continued to fall, and that, along with the oil news sent the banking names down dramatically. I’ll list those below in their sector.
Our “open forum” on Discord, which allows me to interact with subscribers and others to allow direct questions and chart opinions on just about any stock, continues to grow with more participants every day. It is informative and allows me to share insights as the market is open and moving. The link is: https://discord.gg/ATvC7YZ and I will be there and active from before the open and all day. It’s a great place to share ideas and gain some insights.
SECTORS: Other names in the news: It was a very tough day for everyone. While we did have a “Merger Monday” deal between AON and WLTW, neither of the participants made any headway. AON Plc, is buying Willis, Towers, Watson in the biggest insurance transaction ever and creating the world’s largest insurance broker, surpassing Marsh & McLennan (MMC) and worth about $80Billion.
There were a couple of names higher, just a few, and the main ones were in the auto parts segment with ORLY finishing $373.63 +5.55 (1.51%), AZO, $1113.69 +53.38 (5.03%) and AAP $130.36 +2.45 (1.92%). This group has been weak for the past 4-6 months. Also higher was discounter DLTR, $83.51 +3.27 (4.08%).
The Cruise lines continued to fall with all making new lows. RCL fell to $48.27 - 16.74 (25.75%) and down from $135 in January. CCL fell to $21.74 -5.41 (19.93%) and down from $52, while NCLH was $19.81 – 7.29 (26.9%) and down from $60. This is absolutely uninvestable. There will clearly be a point at which the shorts cover, but this group is dead money for a while.
In more COVID-19 news, Inovio (INO) which moved from $2.40 to $16.00 on the news that it would start human trials of its vaccine in April. This morning at $19.36 before collapsing all the way back to $8.53 before closing $9.83 -4.26 (30.23%).
But the HOMERUN OF THE DAY was another name I talked about in this space, AIM Immuno-Tech, Inc (AIM). The company said that its drug, Ampligen will begin testing at National Inst. Of Infectious Diseases in Japan that could play an important role in developing a protective early-onset therapy for COVID-19. The stock has been reverse split both 1:12 in 2016 and more recently 1:44 last June and traded under $ .40 had moved up to $3.50 this month and traded up on the news finishing $6.10 +4.00 (190%) and is continuing in extended hours to $8.75 and is currently $7.69 up an additional $1.59 for a total gain of $5.59 (266%). Quite a highlight on a dismal day.
BIOPHARMA: was LOWER with all names falling hard with BIIB -20.76, ABBV -3.55, REGN -20.58, ISRG -44.48, MYL -1.19, TEVA -1.42, VRTX -13.85, BHC -2.69, INCY -4.42, ICPT -6.88, LABU -11.47 (24.95%), and IBB $109.80 -8.23 (6.97%).
CANNABIS: stocks were LOWER with TLRY -2.47 (24.65%) and KERN -2.58 (37.34%) and none down less than 7.48%. The ETF, MJ $11.74 -1.36 (10.38%).
DEFENSE: was LOWER with some major loses by LMT -31.47, RTN -14.83, GD -13.01, TXT -5.48 (15.26%), UTX -12.48, NOC -15.58, BWXT -5.14, TDY -33.73, and ITA was $174.00 -21.04 (10.79%).
RETAIL was LOWER with major losses. The brands were the biggest losers on the day. M-1.12, JWN -1.88, KSS -2.84, DDS -2.37, JCP - .015, WMT -1.17, TGT -1.92, TJX -1.35, RL -10.78 (10.19%), UAA -1.46 (11.56%), LULU -22.44 (10.27%), TPR -3.35 (15.44%), CPRI -3.13 (13.65%) and XRT $37.01 -2.12 (5.42%).
FAANG and Big Cap: were LOWER with GOOGL -80.14, AMZN -96.19, AAPL -21.42, FB -11.40, NFLX -22.48, NVDA -21.04, IBM -10.38, TSLA -92.48 (13.01%), BABA -7.24, BIDU -8.52, BA -36.22 (13.81%) on continuing problems with the 737MAX and the general market, CAT -16.42 (13.52%), DIS -10.55, and XLK $82.84 -6.07 (6.83%).
FINANCIALS were LOWER with most down over 10% with the market and softness in rates with GS -19.14, JPM -13.53, BAC -3.59, MS -4.35, C -9.34, PNC -15.48, AIG -5.13, TRV -8.54, AXP -9.94, and XLF $22.80 -2.75 (10.76%).
OIL, $31.13 -10.15 (24.58%) The stocks were LOWER with the dramatic fall on the “price war” between the Saudi’s and Putin. It’s difficult to even relate to the prices I’m seeing. In August when OXY bought APC for $57billion OXY was just over $50. Tonight it closed $12.51 –14.35 (53.43%) and the COMBINED market-cap is only $11.4Billion. The rest of the list was equally bad with CVX -13.42, XOM -4.94, MRO 4.06 -2.77 (40.56%), MPC -5.43, APA 10.22 -10.48 (50.6%), BP -5.66 and XLE $34.98 -7.52 (17.69%).
METALS, GOLD: $1,675.70 +3.30. After the rebound, and the overnight move to $1,704.30 we sold off as liquidation hit even the yellow metal. We managed to close up on the day, but it was a disappointment just the same. Our $1.40 position in the GLD calls finished $1.65 +.11.
BITCOIN: closed $7,850 -1,315. We broke to the downside overnight and fell to a low of $7,640, which closed a gap left on the breakout back in January. While I want to add the 350 sold just over a week ago, I want to wait and see some stabilization. We did have 2 subscribers add to new positions under the close today. But we still own 400 GBTC with an average of $8.06. GBTC closed $8.86 – 1.72 today.
