Summer time means………scary movies are in theaters. A new one…..”The Boogeyman”…..is out. Taking a cue from that, and not to be outdone, here comes a real BOOGEYMAN……..SEC head Gary Gensler. As head boogeyman/regulator he is out to scare people out of crypto. Be afraid, very afraid……..or just realize it’s a bad movie.
Mr. Boogey Gensler has announced Part 2 of his vendetta against crypto by suiung Coinbase for being an unregulated exchange and Binance for……well, something. Those announcements caused a tumble in both bitcoin (down 6.5% Tue-Tue) and ETH (down 3.8% Tue-Tue). Looking for a dip to buy? You got it. Thanks Boogey Boy.
So, looking back on the week, the labor market keeps up a fast pace (+339K jobs), inflation remains high with new CPI and PPI figures coming NEXT week and the Fed announces what they will do with interest rates next Wednesday. In other words, last week had no real effect on financial markets (except for the S&P 500 which added 1.8% Tue-Tue) and we don’t know what the markets will do after next week’s news. Hit the beach or mountains and relax. It’s summer.
Let’s be real; it’s extremely confusing in financial land. Be cautious and patient.
In case you need, or want, to do something;
BITCOIN and ETH. I have been saying “buy weakness” and hold for the next big move up. We just got the “Gensler Dip.” Nice.
GOLD. Again, hold it if it makes you feel good. Higher interest rates are in store (damn that stubborn inflation) and that makes GOLD dead money.
S&P 500. Curb your enthusiasm. Liquidity is drying up in the credit markets, recession is coming, higher (and for longer) interest rates are in store, etc, etc. Suck it up and stay short. We got a 20% down shot coming.
LA DE DA. STOCKS ONLY GO UP. WHAT COULD POSSIBLY GO WRONG? I WAS INVOLVED IN THE 1987 CRASH, THE DOT COM BUBBLE AND THE 2008 FINANCIAL CRISIS. I KNOW WHAT CAN GO WRONG. BE VERY CAUTIOUS AND SURVIVE (PROSPER).
REMEMBER, ONLY A HANDFUL (LIKE, 7 OR SO) STOCKS HAVE ACCOUNTED FOR ALL OF THE EQUITY UPSIDE. HMMMMM! GO BITCOIN.
- BITCOIN 2023…….UP……new all time highs
- ETH 2023…………UP……..new all time highs
- GOLD 2023……….??????????
- S&P 500 2023……..DOWN…….DOWN……DOWN……...LOOKING AT 3,250
Current trading positions:
- SLIGHTLY LONG BITCOIN
- SLIGHTLY LONG ETH
- NEUTRAL GOLD
- SHORT S&P 500
We compare the price of Bitcoin, Ethereum, Gold & the S&P 500. We use the CME Bitcoin Indexes (BRR & BRTI) and the CME Ethereum Indexes (ETH_RR_USD) & (ETH_RTI_USD) for reference as well as the London Bullion Market afternoon price settlement on the digital assets & gold.
