The natural reaction to all things new that don't fit into our "established order" psyche, is to dismiss out of hand.

As things stand, crypto's and the technology associated with them all sounds like voodoo black magic.

My position is quite simple. I can see how this stuff might take off, particularly if there is another financial crash, or rampant inflation, devaluation theft of fiat currencies etc etc. So i'm prepared to learn as much as I can about this crazy stuff, as I think it may have a part to play in the future.

Scams abound in this new arena, so as always, do your own due diligence.

Going by what China is doing, one thing that definitely does sound like is the governments and banks don't care for them in their existing forms. When the correct form arrives, the existing forms will become worthless.

Here's a banker's view about it: https://www.bloomberg.com/news/arti...ys-he-d-fire-traders-who-bet-on-fraud-bitcoin

My first kiddie crypto positions. See the message ? A real bank crypto would never give you that. This is why I don't like kiddie coins or script kiddies. So I dismiss them out of hand because it would be like playing with a 5 year old on an intellectual level. There would be no value to it.

What the message says is: whoa big trader, hold your horses right there. We have some important kiddies passing though.

whats this clown on about
Real bank coins? no such thing

Gold is the only true currency.

Having faith in Fiat currency over crypto? JP doesn't like it so many horror stories will surface soon. Why is that? Lets see.

I remember it used to be that unknowingly everyone was saying that brokers trade 24/7 with quotes that they themselves draw.

night trading

Hello I have been trading Russell 2000 on and off for many years. The past year my days have been occupied so I have been unable to watch the markets and trade at all. I'm not really interested in Stocks - overnight - swing trading etc... I would like some truly unbiased help on a great futures contract, preferably E-mini, that I could trade EST 7pm-12am. I know Asian markets have E-mini but I'm just confused with all the promotional banter as I look for the answer myself.

Thank you all
