I don’t mention cryptos here much, but I saw a headline that LiteCoin was up 30%. There’s an entire subculture of crypto journalism, and I am certain without even looking that there’s a whole raft of “Crypto is BACK!” articles being cranked out at this very moment.

While I am sorting through my own charts, just an update on the wonderful world of crypto – – one glance at the charts will tell you all you need to know.
