Recently, fiat settled derivatives are one of my pet worries. There is no proof that they actually did much real damage by themselves yet: some reasonable sounding opinions argue that it's more of a psychological thing, like metaFUD/metaFOMO. These opinions sound reasonable on the basis of the numbers reported. Volume on futures was - is! - too low to harm seriously (although, with the underlying bitcoin market as thin as it is now, nothing is impossible).

However, if Soros and other big players are really getting into the cornfield, it's going to be tough play. I really hope the SEC approves some ETF, but backed by actual bitcoin, stored in blockchain addresses known to the public.

Along the same lines, futures and similar derivatives should be entirely bitcoin-backed. "For delivery", as they say, since delivering bitcoin is as easy as can be. BY doing so, you can push and pull the market only according to how many coins - not dollars - you hold. You can probably push/pull a bit further than that, because exchanges are quick to kiss the right ass, but when you finally have to deliver, you have to buy or sell actual bitcoin. Let the markets (and the unavoidable slippage) do the rest.

Agreed.

The future or an ETF are only a proxy for investors who cannot take reponsibility for their own holdings. Unlike Gold or Stock derivatives, I can see no effective transfer mechanism for the derivative price to significantly affect the actual traded price of BTC.

Or maybe he means  City of London, I have seen some conspiracy sites claim that it's not a part of Britain (it is). https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/City_of_London

Not heard of that before. I was referring to the divide between London and the rest of the country. They voted in favour of remain during Brexit, and some Londoners argued for separation from the UK.

Double bottom = classic TA

Also bottoming tends to be a process rather than an event.

It is my understanding that in the paper metals world, none of the metal actually moves. No one takes physical possession, or calls anyone's bluff. So no one really knows how much physical metal any of the big bullion banks have stored. None ever get audited.

Even if bluffs were called, excuses would get made and long delays on physical delivery would be routine.

At least with Bitcoin, it's transparent enough that audits are as simple as a signed message. Deliveries are near instantaneous.

To break overall downtrend we need to get above about $8100 at the moment.  Obviously this amount decreases over time.  

At the current price of $7118 we would break the overall downtrend on 18 or 19 April.

Europa Analytics..should we be scared?  Tongue  Nice info there RF..thanks.

Deep dive beyond bitcoin and what I think might be the greatest gift of this technology.

   The long term benefits of this technology might be this...for the first time when we look backwards in time, at history if you will. We will have cryptographic proof that the information contained is not tampered with. This is such a simple statement that I hope you all take the time to truly understand the profound impact of what it is that I am insinuating. True wisdom comes with understanding the space that you are observing, by accurately "mapping" a space..you gain more understanding of it. Having a map that stays consistent over time is a game changer on so many levels I have a hard time wrapping my thoughts around it.
   Of course the above begs the question.."How do we know what is put into the map is correct?"   Majority rules..consensus..all the tools that the World and democracy have will come to bare I am sure. Will there be disagreement? Of course..but strictly from a scientific perspective this is really amazing. To put these thoughts into practical application..take a experiment..what is needed is incredible accuracy. Knowing with out a doubt that all the variables are indeed congruent. What better tool to use than a blockchain? Chaining the data points insures that when and if you need to reproduce the environment you can do it with extreme precision.
  What I am speculating on is most likely to develop on private chains not public ones like bitcoin..but who knows.

This ability to have accurate models..down to perhaps the sub-atomic level, leads me to believe that technology that has seemed like fantasy will become reality. Imagine for a moment a holographic model of yourself that is so accurate that you could digitize that information and then reassemble it at another point. I am talking teleportation alright..and if this seems a flight of fancy it is not. There is already some very intelligent people out there who theorize that we live inside a giant hologram already. People at the forefront are looking deep into the AdS/CFT correspondence and other aspects of the Holographic principle.
  Bah, I am rambling now..   Exciting times indeed.

I just realized something as well..I write a large amount of words that are never published any further than on the preview pane...I cant help but laugh out loud. Hundreds of sentences that get retyped or reworded or just deleted..smh. Well..this time I am just spewing words and damn the torpedoes...full speed ahead Captain.

Psst..hey Goose..   28/4  Thanks!
