Some of the inflation that would otherwise show up is being exported courtesy of the Fed, especially to Asia. Frothy real estate markets like Singapore, Shanghai, HK, Sydney are starting to show some cracks at the high end with failed auctions.
You should see what's happened to Bangkok since 2008. Condo building frenzy

I haven't been to thailand in 20 years. But I keep seeing condos on offer in Bangkok, Phuket and Pattaya. Some of them look really nice but I would be suspect about the build quality. If prices take a tumble I may go have a look. People also keep telling me to check out Spain and Croatia too because Spain in particular went apeshit building new properties and then demand fell off a cliff. Soon it may be a great time to have cash in hand.

The market is totally oblivious to the reality in the Gold Market and the reality is coming to come back bite every stupid investor in the $$$: rise use of other means of international exchange than USD, QE will come back bigger, interests rates at 0, less percentage workers compared to the population in the US and worse jobs, ect.

Normally the Fed doesn't allow the markets to end a Friday on a down note. There's not much data around today and after the last three days of panic and after nasty sessions in Asia and Europe the only way the US markets should end is down. The fed has made noises about not interfering and if they don't there's not much to hold the indices up. If the markets start the session heading down and the fed doesn't step in then it could be an ugly day. I can't really believe the fed will keep their fingers out of the pie but we'll know in a few hours.

Pretty much this. It's been a volatile week. Red futures might lead to a market sell off as people don't want to hold over the weekend. It's been a crazy week..who knows what may happen over the weekend

 Roll Eyes

I have been saying that for months now with no fucking real sell off yet, Fuckers come on make it happen!

Big thing right now to watch is the oil fight, some say if Oil crosses $75 a barrel (now at $85) the Shale Natural Gas industry is going to get ass raped and this is what held up the US imo over the last 4-7 years.

http://www.marketwatch.com/investing/stock/chk

85$ a barrel is so low compared to the 200$ a barrel in 2017 Grin

Am very bullish for most energy companies and countries which have a lot of natural ressources

Think we got our bearwhale.

Rumour is out that Coinbase is going to get raided.

Many months ago I penned a post here stating that "The Blockchain may only ever be applicable to Bitcoin as Money". If what is rumored here is true,  then my confidence level that this is true has just gone up to 80%. Perhaps someone can dig it up  for me.

I'm at a conference right now and on my phone so I can't dig the post out but I said that because a lot of these founders, who have lots of shares, are known, they and their protocols are highly exposed to gvt action allowing them to be easily killed.  Contrast that with Bitcoin where nobody knows who Satoshi is nor if he still owns his privkeys. There is a very good reason why  he disappeared.

If anything at all, this is Bullish for Bitcoin as it's truly the only safe haven whose founder remains anonymous and whose keys can't be confiscated.

I doubt Coinbase would be shut down as they've gone overboard with their AML. it's just a rumor at this point anyways, probably from an altscam proponent.

as far as NXT, the difference is that if its dev continues devving for NXT, he will be found as opposed to Satoshi who won't. he's at great risk  plus, there's all the other problems with POS we've already debated and him holding potentially the vast majority of NXT coins.

with alts, any wise investor at this stage of the game insists on knowing who the devs are to hold them accountable.  the market has given a pass to Bitcoin in this regard since it was first and it's too late and are satisfied with its current dev team who actually doesn't appear to have a signif amt at risk with Bitcoin.

I don't think anyone said anything about Coinbase. Here's the original IRC transcript of this rumor:
http://www.reddit.com/r/Bitcoin/comments/2iujgv/secfincen_preparing_action_against_us_bitcoin/

Appears solely relevant to "Bitcoin 2.0" companies.


The tldr quote:
"[6:08:29 PM] taariq lewis: If you are in USA and you run a Bitcoin Business that issues tokens and you are not registered with FinCen, expect these fines to be established guidelines going forward"

Bitcoin is the first monetary system to credibly offer perfect information to all economic participants.
But Bitcointalk & /r/bitcoin are heavily censored. bitco.in/forum, forum.bitcoin.com, and /r/btc are open.

The creator has dissappeared just like satoshi. The lead dev now Jean-Luc is not the creator and is of equal stature as Gavin.
