Checking the Bitcoin chart has, for me, become kind of like watching a huge auto wreck. Even though I have nothing to do with it, I just can’t stop looking. In the past 24 hours, three milestones have fallen away – – $13,000, then $14,000, and $15,000.
First off, WOW about the Matt Lauer news. That’s sort of Walter Cronkite level in terms of the media world. I’ve frankly never understand the mega-success of the guy. He seems utterly boring to me. All the same, we live in some pretty interesting times.
Second, and far more germane to this blog, good GRAVY cryptos are running wild, aren’t they? Bitcoin just about tagged $11,000. I’m feeling good about this, because SlopeCharts had a RECORD day of users. I guess people really dig the HUGELY IMPROVED depth of data, including free REAL TIME, INTRADAY data on cryptos. Keep using ’em, folks – – the price is right!
Just this morning we let you know that there are one hundred different cryptocurrencies on SlopeCharts. Now, just hours later, we’ve upped the game even more, by providing intraday charts of these same cryptos. I’ve also decided that EVERYONE gets access to all this data, not just PLUS users. Just choose Intraday from the Preferences:
In the nearly thirteen years that I’ve been writing Slope of Hope, perhaps the most ironic post (out of over 20,000) was one I did last January called Bitcoin’s Massive Bullish Base. The reason it’s ironic is because Slope is largely dedicated to seeking out short-selling ideas for stocks, whereas the post was about going long a cryptocurrency. Only ten months and eight-hundred percent later, It turned out to be the greatest trade idea in the blog’s history, which actually doesn’t feel that great for the reason just cited.
