Looks Like a Buying Opportunity

February 10, 2018

Nice two weeks on the markets, eh?  The DOW touched 23,360 on Friday, pulling it all the way back to where it was on November 20, 2017.  The “crash” has wiped out all of the gains over the last two and a half months. Is two and a half months of crash really a crash?  […]

Dow Falls 666, But That’s Not The Real Story

February 3, 2018

The Dow is down.  Could be a story. The memo got released.  That could be a story. Or perhaps those are just minor details.  Perhaps there is a bigger story. So a guy named Nunes writes a memo, and the Democrats don’t want it released, but the Republicans do, so they vote to release it, […]

Gold Breakout?

January 27, 2018

Sure looks like it: From $1,302 on New Year’s Day, the low point of the year, gold has steadily advanced to $1,352, with only two slight pullbacks.  Not a bad month, so far. The peak came on September 8, 2017 at $1,357, before a pullback to the $1,240 level in December.  On January 25 gold […]

How Crazy is Bitcoin?

January 20, 2018

Pretty crazy. On December 7 it touched $19,697 on the Bitfinex exchange.  (Bitcoin isn’t like a stock, traded on one or two exchanges.  Cryptos are traded on many exchanges, and you can trade peer-to-peer without an exchange, so determining an exact price is not precise). On January 7 it touched around $9,000. That’s a 45% […]

No, I am Not Dead

January 13, 2018

There was no post here last week because, well, there just wasn’t. Also, for some reason the Buy High Sell Higher Forum is broken; not sure what the issue is, I’ll attempt to fix it at some point.  Now, down to business. Gold was up in 2017, and is up so far in 2018, but […]

Why 2018 Will Blow Your Mind

December 30, 2017

If I actually knew what was going to happen in 2018, I would invest accordingly, and I would not jinx it by writing it on this anonymous blog.  But since you have taken the time to read, here are my thoughts. To start, I agree with the thoughts of Scott Adams, who is of the […]

The Great Bitcoin Crash of Yesterday, and two months ago, and four months ago, etc.

December 23, 2017

Kinda fun to watch, eh? At 8:30 am on December 17 Bitcon was trading at almost $20,000 US.  On December 22 at 9:15 am it was trading at just under $10,500 US.  That’s almost a 50% drop in less than a week.  Cool, eh? By 4;00 pm on December 22 it was back to $14,800, […]

Apple: A Nice Cash Generator

December 16, 2017

I continue to hold a number of gold stocks, but this week something different: AAPL – Apple. As you can see, the chart of Apple is a nice long uptrend (year to date). From under $120 at the start of the year to almost $175 now, it’s in a nice uptrend.  But of course just […]

Gold or Bitcoin: What’s the Best Investment?

December 9, 2017

Yup, I did it.  I used the words “bitcoin” and “investment” in the same sentence. I do not think of Bitcoin as an investment.  I think of it as a speculation.  Or gambling.  However, there is no doubt that we all should have put all of our money in Bitcoin a year ago, because Bitcoin […]

Is Every Damn Blog Obsessed with Bitcoin?

December 2, 2017

Yes.  Everyone is obsessed with Bitcoin.  When something goes up 10% in a few hours, we take notice. What should you do about Bitcoin? Here’s my advice: First, and most importantly, learn about it.  Do not put any money into it until you understand what it is, and how it works.  Pretend you are enrolled […]
