The Government Does Not Want You To Use Facebook Chat

Actually it does. But that’s precisely why you shouldn’t. Facebook unveiled plans about a year ago to add end-to-end encryption on all its chat products and the Government just doesn’t like it. US Attorney General William Barr wrote an open letter asking Facebook to ditch its plans. We can only assume that at least one…

Tariff Effects

I saw this chart floating around on Twitter today and found it quite compelling… For those readers not looking at the stock market every day, “X” is the stock market symbol for US STEEL. Today we announced new tariffs on our friends in the EU…

California’s Assembly Bill 5 Targeting Uber and Lyft is Premature and Bone-headed

Did you know – that the cost of every single ride on LYFT and UBER is subsidized by the respective company? You might have suspected that was the case. The underlying reasons for that is why neither one is profitable nor has any chance of becoming profitable any time soon. What you might not know…

Google Does NOT Have A Monopoly

I find it hilarious that the EU, and, now the US, are trying to paint Google as a monopolist. Google does not have a monopoly. What they do have are users who CHOOSE to grant Google a monopoly. And that is a totally different ball of wax. You know which companies have a monopoly? Your…

A Bitcoin Chart…

Everyone has seen this break…. But that doesn’t mean there isn’t going to be follow-through! The forecast for this break (according to classical charting principles) is close to the breakout point for this last run-up – around 4000.00. Can you imagine if we give back all those gains? In case you’re not a chartist and…

Impeaching Trump Will Make It Harder For The Democrats in 2020

I can hear some of you going – “wait, what?” The reason is simple: the senate is not on board. Its been a while since the process of impeachment has been seriously discussed by the populace so most do not know that impeaching a president is just step one. There is a second step –…

Trading Homework For Trade-date Friday August 30th 2019

Going into the end of the month / start of a new month / holiday weekend – the historical bias is to buy stuff. So the equity markets moved to the upper end of their recent range. Can it break out to the upside? Its possible given China’s comments about not adding new tariffs…. Just…

Giving It All Back…

Today was just one of those days… Yesterday, I couldn’t do anything wrong with my trades. There were amazing trends in many markets but I focused on the Gold and Silver markets. Not only were the trends strong but they were well behaved. Which means there were no frustrating whip-saw stop-outs. Today, all those gains…

New Toy: Neo Smart Pen

A few months ago I had my first encounter with the Neo Smart Pen at a B8ta popup shop in a nearby mall in Chicago. At the time I thought it was a fascinating device and have stopped by the popup shop a couple of times since then to play with it. The pen takes…

Technically Speaking: Gold Is A Morphing Chart

In early June (2019) Gold broke out of a descending wedge and quickly moved higher. Then, in July, it set up what looked to be a large bull flag – or as Peter Brandt thinks, a “half-mast” flag. On July 18th, price broke out of the half mast flag and closed the day above it,…
