When even the bears get bullish

The dollar or its index DXY rallied by around 8% in the past few months after it lost 15% since the beginning of 2017.

This time in the direction of the primary trend, which is becoming bearish for the dollar again. Continue reading “When even the bears get bullish”

Silver: The next big thing?

Silver hasn’t move anywhere in the past 2 years, it’s been in a range and this range is getting smaller and smaller.

While a lot of people are saying bitcoin is a scam, one should buy puts on every crypto, and while there are many ICO frauds, I am not so sure about the negative outcome for the asset class as a whole. I don’t want to go over all the reasons why, but I think it has a lot to do with the same reasons as why the stocks are in a bullish trend, e.g. money is super cheap, we could be in the beginning of a secular bull trend (see my post from Sep17, Why are you so pessimistic?), etc.

But there is another one which could push the prices higher. Continue reading “Cryptos are big, really big!”
