Crypto Charts I Actually Like

By -

As the cryptos were going into a death spiral Thursday night and Friday morning, a couple of them caught my eye as good buys. I don’t trade the stuff (although some people have emailed me, encouraging me to do so), but if I had an account, I think I would have bought Ethereum when it was down about 45% on Friday morning. It recovered decently already, and its pattern was far, far better than Bitcoin’s.

Keeping the Crash in Context

By -

It’s extraordinary to me that Bitcoin futures launched Sunday at about $20,600 and as of this moment have broken into the $12,000’s. A drop of 40% in the span of a few days after launch is, umm, pretty impressive. And I’ve said repeatedly, I don’t have a dog in this fight (although, given my warped nature, I’d find it funnier for the entire crypto space to implode), but I will point out that this crash, in the big picture, isn’t much different than any of the others. The uptrend is still intact.
