If my assets are not insured by the government or a large well known insurance company (worst case), I am staying far, far away...
Yeah it's a good point, but then we are not comparing apples. Btw, if the **** does hit the fan, govt and insurance promises will be worthless. I'm sure you understand this though.

I do, but I don't think crypto or gold are the solution, you'll need few good friends, medicine, water, food, guns + lots of ammo and not necessarily in that order :-)

My number 1 trading rule: EDUCATE YOURSELF!

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.

There's a news ticker on the cnbc interview...BTC 20% down from the high. What they fail to report is that this money is just moving around the crypto market. Market cap is still rising. Now stands @ $640,605,570,765
