Before you trade even single penny on the stock market, please spend the time and educate yourself by back testing different trading strategies and ideas - go to eBay and search for "historical stock market data", you can buy 20 years of data for less than $100 - that's all you need to start.

Couldn't agree more. Cryptos offer some interesting opportunities but I'm more vested in blockchain tech long term.

Hi Quantt,
I give you full marks for your ability to pour scorn and derision on Cryptos on an almost daily basis, and I accept that many of the articles you link to have merit. However, I'm going to call you out on this one I'm afraid. It's not worth the (virtual) paper it's typed on - for two reasons:
1. Firstly, it's based on a theory written by two economists. And, as everyone knows, they know sweet FA about sweet FA!
2. Secondly, they named it the Côtes du Rhône theory - after the wine they were drinking. Two bottles of it between them, apparently. I stopped reading right there. If they were drinking - I dunno - say a decent Margeaux or something - then their theory might have a drop of credibility. At least it would have a sexy name: The Margeaux Theory. But two bottles of Côtes du Rhône? I don't think so, that's enough to make anyone write tosh!

Tim.

1. 50% true, one was hedge fund manager...
2. Actually the 2 bottles made them value the bitcoin at $200, but the next day they did the recalculations without the wine and the result was $20

Security/IT is part of my other job, so I am keeping tabs on any significant plays, even tough I still think blockchain has no mainstream future, just because distributed databases are very expensive to maintain...
