The month of May has been nothing short of boring…….so far. It probably will become even more boring since the month is two thirds over already and coming up on a three day Memorial Day weekend. So if you haven’t been attending a graduation event (college, high school, middle school, grade school or kindergarten), protesting in the streets (I hear the pay is good), or watching political trials on television, it’s been fairly dull. Yeah, so what right?

Enough of the “boo hoo,” it’s so quiet and dull crap. What have we got to work with here? Let’s get some some thoughts out and see what sticks.

BITCOIN has awakened. Its at the top of my “up up and away” list. After spending a bit of time bouncing around the lower $60K area the ‘BIT’ woke up and has had a great week, It appears that the “old” highs up through $75K are gonna be dust in the rear view mirror. A print at $100K might happen, but lets look at $95k for now.

ETH has also had a great week (up 28%). Speculation that an ETH spot ETF is close to being approved has helped. Maybe yes, maybe wai,t but a no is not expected. I would expect some profit taking should the spot ETH ETF be announced.

GOLD had a nice week.  I just feel like being neutral on the shiny metal. However, if there is is a huge market “blow off” it should participate. I won’t mind missing a GOLD rally since I will/do have BITCOIN.

Now, the S&P 500. After a long (really long…..damn) time of preaching the short side I am going neutral (gasp). The markets feel like they are going to have a huge “blow off” to the upside. I may be wrong BUT if that were to happen, I would rather not be short. If I miss equities I will have……BITCOIN. The S&P 500 did have a decent week, too.

OVERALL. ALL the markets (equities, commodities, crypto) feel like there may be a huge speculative upside “blow off” coming. Exciting? Yes. Scary? Yes, that too.

AN UPSIDE FINANCIAL MARKET EXPLOSION?  JUST LIKE A VOLCANO, WHEN IT BLOWS EVERYTHING GOES.
