  1. Our colleague Jim Rickards took the podium to outline in great detail -- through the geopolitical lens -- why that is. “It’s simple,” he says: “It has everything to do with the weaponization of the US dollar.” Of course, he goes on, “Economic and financial sanctions are not new -- US has used asset seizures, freezes, embargoes, blockades, tariffs, and trade bans many times in the past.” BUT… Recent history reveals that US sanctions only work under three conditions: 1.] Target is a small to medium sized economy 2.] Target has no alternative payment channels 3.] Target has limited hard currency (or gold) reserves “None of these conditions apply to Russia,” said Jim. The U.S. sanctions on Russia are without precedent. Assets of Russia’s central bank and commercial banks were seized. Russian banks were ejected from SWIFT. Investment by U.S. entities in Russia is prohibited. Russian exports of oil, gas, strategic metals, and other goods have been banned. Imports of high-tech equipment, semiconductors, luxury goods, automobiles, and many more goods are also banned. And yet… “Russian sanctions have been a complete failure,” said Rickards. “Russian growth in 2023 is projected at 2.1%. USD/RUB was stable at around 70 from May 2022 to May 2023; down slightly now to 95. “ If you’re not worried about this… You might be worried about the blowback. Or the response to weaponization..” Author: Jim Rickards Profits from free accurate cryptos signals: https://www.predictmag.com/
  2. (excerpts) “In trading, patience and the ability to sit still is not only a virtue, it’s gold . Doing nothing can be one of the most productive things you can do. But as one would expect, being the addicts that we are, the moment the trading session opens, we feel the urge to become more productive all of a sudden. It’s like our minds will not let us enjoy doing nothing. We have to analyze, anticipate, worry, stress, tweak, especially when we’re not supposed to” “Society… it conditions us to continually chase money, power, and a faster, wilder pace of life. Don’t slow down, and God forbid don’t pause, don’t reflect. Keep chasing or you fall behind. Over-schedule, overthink, overwork… this is the mantra. This is supposed to be what progress is. This is supposed to be what success is. Early, we learn to believe that this is absolutely normal, and in due time it becomes an addiction. We can’t sit still for a moment. Just like any addict, sitting still and doing nothing makes us feel unproductive. We feel we’re losing time, so we become agitated.” “Have you ever noticed that all these experiences–thoughts and sensations–are continuous? You’re constantly pulled to mental states and body states, and, most of the time, you’re not aware that you are. You’re automatically in the stories, you believe them, and they urge you to act in a certain way. Which you do. Have you ever noticed that too? Then, next thing you know, you’re entering your trades at the wrong time; you’re exiting at the wrong time; you’re removing your stop-loss; you’re increasing or decreasing your position size… essentially, you’re going against your trading rules. This is a problem because this lack of awareness of your urges is costing you money. Trading is mostly a waiting game where you have to strike only when the time is right. If you want action that happens on your own terms, you’re in the wrong field. As a trader, you simply can’t afford to lack self-awareness.” “The market does not hurry, it moves at its own rhythm, on its own time. And self-awareness helps you cultivate patience and ‘do nothing’ as that happens. This ability to let the market do its thing saves you time and energy. It allows trades to come to you. It puts a stop to the chasing. It embraces the natural order and evolution of things.” - “The Do-Nothing technique is simply about interrupting your impulsive behaviors. It’s cultivating a calm acceptance that things in life can and will often happen in a different order than the one you could be holding in mind. It’s keeping a good attitude while waiting for your pitch. And this all starts with awareness.” Source: https://www.tradingview.com/chart/SPY/bEB4PbaX-The-Art-Of-Do-Nothing-In-Trading/?utm_source=Weekly&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=TradingView+Weekly+174+%28EN%29 Profits from free accurate cryptos signals: https://www.predictmag.com/
  3. Why do Africans not benefit from the vast amounts of natural resources that dot the continent? Is “modern colonialism” a significant factor in this or are there other factors at play? Africa is not that rich in many critical natural resources. US or Saudi Arabia alone produce more oil than the entire continent of Africa. List of countries by oil production. There is not as much water in a large chunk of the continent compared to United States or even China. And it has far less fertile lands. Thus, the 3 critical resources for humanity - energy, water and food are not in plenty. Here are the world's top countries by natural resources - Top Ten Countries with Most Natural Resources - and no African country comes up there. Africa seem to export a lot of natural resources only because there are not enough domestic companies that can process those resources into high value components, unlike other places with abundance of natural resources. This is why countries that export the fewest of natural resources are in general richer, because they always find a way to build a value layer on top of that. This value layer is where employment is. The way to benefit from the resource is to create valued added services on top of that. Thus, instead of exporting iron ore, you refine it to steel and then machinery & automobiles with it. With this, you will have jobs for miners, factory workers, engineers and mechanics. The deeper you are in the value chain better the benefit will be to the people. To get deeper into the value chain, you need visionary leaders, spending on infrastructure & worker training and setting up the environment for businesses to operate freely.” - Balaji Viswanathan,Quora Profits from free accurate cryptos signals: https://www.predictmag.com/
  4. “Excerpts” #1. Nuclear is Going UP. “You may not be interested in nuclear,” said Byron, “but nuclear is interested in you.” This is a sector that’s strong, showing no signs of letting up. → Long-term underinvestment (undervalued) → Rising demand (especially in China) → Geopolitical trends in its favor (Russia as a supplier) → Yellowcake price going up. → New technology for nuke power on rise (SMR) Summary: Nuclear is a good place to be. #2. Oil is Going UP. Byron’s bullish on oil for many of the same reasons. → Long-term underinvestment → “Renewables will NOT DO IT!!!” → (They’re not really renewable) → Legacy companies politically disfavored The well-run oil companies basically have a license to mint cash. Even more, says Byron: “They will sell their kidneys before they cut dividends. Write that down.” The Big Oil companies that are well-run will make you money. It’s as simple as that. #3. Copper is Going UP. Finally, there’s copper. “While water is life,” said Byron, “electricity is quality of life. Electricity means copper. In order to go green, you have to go red.” In copper, we’re seeing a perfect storm. The low-hanging fruit has been picked. → Depleting ore deposits → Higher input costs → Rising energy costs → Rising labor costs → Water scarcity around the world In short, says Byron: “Copper is a GREAT place to be.” Author: Chris Campbell Source: AltucherConfidential Profits from free accurate cryptos signals: https://www.predictmag.com/
  5. Dear Reader, Every time the "Bitcoin Halving" takes place… Bitcoin's price shoots off the charts. The first time it boomed by a staggering 1,235%. The second time it skyrocketed by a massive 5,267%. The last time it shot up 1,356%. Now… it's about to happen again. The thing is, right before the "Halving", is an accumulation period. That's when Bitcoin prices historically go on a HUGE bull run. Guess what? 2023 is a "halving accumulation year". – Bryce Paul Profits from free accurate cryptos signals: https://www.predictmag.com/
  6. Does it make sense to always buy the dips? “Buy the dip.” You hear this all the time in crypto investing. It refers, of course, to buying more bitcoin (or digital assets) when they go down in price: when the price “dips.” Some people brag about “buying the dip," showing they know better than the crowd. Others “buy the dip” as an investment strategy: they’re getting a bargain. The problem is, buying the dip is a fallacy. You can’t buy the dip, because you can't see the total dip until much later. First, I’ll explain this in a way that will make it simple and obvious to you; then I’ll show you a better way of investing. You Only Know the Dip in Hindsight When people talk about “buying the dip,” what they’re really saying is, “I bought when the price was going down.” Here’s a look at the price of bitcoin from earlier this year. When it dropped to $39,000, El Salvador President Nayib Bukele proudly tweeted that his government had just purchased an additional chunk of bitcoin: that it “bought the dip.” But the next day, the price of bitcoin dipped further, to $34,500: Could you “buy the dip” then? No, because the next day, it dipped further still, to $33,500: Why “buying the dip” is probably not the best economic policy. We could take any time period, for any cryptocurrency, and show this same principle: you can only see the dip in hindsight, after the price has gone back up. This assumes, of course, that the price will go back up. There are plenty of investors who “bought the dip” on their favorite token, only to find out it wasn’t a dip, but a ride off a cliff.” - John Hargrave Profits from free accurate cryptos signals: https://www.predictmag.com/
  7. “Ever hear that saying, “I’m up to my eyeballs in debt”? Well, after World War I, Germany was up to its highest church steeple -- 530 feet high at the time -- in debt. (Fun fact: The Ulm Minster, completed in 1890, is still the tallest church in the world.) The reparations required by the Treaty of Versailles were enormous: to the tune of 132 billion gold marks, worth more than $500 billion today. By the way… It took 92 YEARS for Germany to pay the full amount, making its final debt payment on October 3, 2010. Can you guess what Germany did when it received its first bill in the mail? It printed a whole lot of money. That way, it reasoned, it could buy foreign currency, and then pay off the debt faster. But as the government continued to flood the market with newly-printed money, something happened: the value of the Mark began to plummet. (Gasp!) This led to a destructive cycle wherein, by late 1922, the German government could no longer afford NOT to print, and the Mark's value went into a freefall. Prices skyrocketed. A loaf of bread, which cost 250 Marks in January 1923, had rocketed to 200 billion Marks by November 1923. People's life savings were wiped out overnight. The infamous images of people carrying wheelbarrows full of cash to buy a single loaf of bread were a harsh reality. This, of course, laid the groundwork for civil unrest, paving the way for extremist political movements, including the one led by the guy with the funny mustache, which would ultimately plunge the world into World War II. The currency collapse playbook is pretty similar throughout history. Loads of debt + Loads of printing = Loads of chaos. “It Can’t Happen Here” While this is certainly on the extreme end… History is littered with examples of currencies going kaput, hurling nations into chaos. Zimbabwe, Argentina, Venezuela, and more are just the latest examples. But the most powerful currency in history -- the US dollar -- is immune to such shocks… Right? Well, that’s what most people think.” – Chris Campbell (AltucherConfidential) Profits from free accurate cryptos signals: https://www.predictmag.com/
  8. Recently, the Society for Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecommunication (SWIFT) announced a partnership with Chainlink (LINK) to experiment with connecting private and public blockchains. Swift is the traditional global financial messaging system that underpins most international money and securities transfers. After several tests with private blockchains, Swift is expanding its experiments to include public blockchains, with plans to use Chainlink’s Cross-Chain Interoperability Protocol (CCIP). The collaboration includes major financial institutions like BNP Paribas, BNY Mellon, Citi, Euroclear, SIX Digital Exchange (SDX), and the Depository Trust & Clearing Corporation (DTCC). Chainlink is providing what Swift calls an “enterprise account abstraction layer.” “What’s missing is the ability to send [assets] from a bank chain to a public chain — banks want to do that,” said Sergey Nazarov, co-founder of Chainlink. The proof of concept will demonstrate how banks can practically interoperate across these networks, both public and private. CCIP is a “universal messaging interface” for cross-blockchain communications. It has the ability to interface with private blockchains and includes security features like active risk management networks. These features differentiate it from alternatives like Axelar’s general message passing and make it appealing to major financial players. Swift aims to use existing bank systems and sees a multichain future. However, connecting to hundreds of different chains is not feasible for most banks. Chainlink aims to save thousands of global banks time and money by linking chains through one integration. “I think they realize the digital asset class is not going anywhere,” Nazarov said. Investor takeaway: This collaboration certainly has the potential to greatly increase the adoption of blockchain technology in the traditional financial sector. Chainlink would be an obvious beneficiary, but demand for other blockchain-related products and services is likely to follow. That said, many regulatory hurdles exist (assuming the technology works). In other words, this is all very early, but it bears watching, particularly for LINK investors (or those considering investing in LINK). “But, despite inherent risks, a well-executed investment strategy, with due diligence, patience, and consistent monitoring, can yield stable high returns and significant upside.” Profits from free accurate cryptos signals: https://www.predictmag.com/
  9. Still Here to Stay In short… If you’ve been in crypto long enough, you’ve survived flash crashes, exploits, explosions, implosions, hackers, phishers, worms, bugs, bank runs, and the like. Crypto is one of the most incredible industries for accelerated evolution and experimentation. But it also means that failures and explosions will happen. And more quickly, too. By pushing risk to the edges, DeFi aims to solve many of the systemic risks of traditional finance, which is perpetually one bank run away from collapse. And though there’s no shortage of talking heads dancing on its grave today… Crypto’s still here to stay.” – Chris C. Profits from free accurate cryptos signals: https://www.predictmag.com/
  10. Let me repeat that: CBDC WILL CENTRALIZE POWER IN A WAY IT HAS NEVER EVER BEEN CENTRALIZED IN THE HISTORY OF MANKIND. Centralized power has never led to increased rights and increased freedom. Ask yourself: What could the Central Planners do? What if the central planners decide that since you went to Hawaii last summer, your currency won’t be able to buy tickets this summer? What if central planners decided that your money can’t pay for a Financial Times subscription anymore because their editors are corrupting your mind? What if the central planners decide that, after Christmas, everyone should lose a few pounds and through a program, limit the amount of food you can buy for you and your family? What if elections are run on manifestos promising the redistribution of funds? And as soon as the election results are confirmed, the central planners automatically implement the debits and credits of the promises? What if the central planners decide you don’t get to buy food until you’ve received the vaccination that they were lobbied for? What if a lobbying group convinces the central planners that every digital US dollar wallet should automatically buy one of their products or services annually? What if Artificial Intelligence hacks the Central Bank Digital Currency? What if another nation hacks the Central Bank Digital Currency? - Nolan Loxton Profits from free accurate cryptos signals: https://www.predictmag.com/
  11. NB: In the 5-part articles in this series, we would explain the strategies used to trade Forex, stocks, indices, crypto pairs, and other cryptocurrencies, for our VIP followers, because they are interested in making profits with us. Kunle F. is one of our signals strategists in the VIP Group. His strategy is described below. Kunle F’s Strategy My Strategy Description I trade Smart Money Concept with the use of Demand and Supply zones. Firstly, I identify strong bullish or bearish trends. I do not trade ranging markets. Strong trends are characterized by impulsive displacements in specific directions and this is what I seek to ride on. The pullbacks or corrections are lethargic. I take advantage of inefficiently traded regions because they are used as anchor points for retracement. I trade Forex pairs. To have an edge in the market I have a minimum of 1:3 RRR. I use the market structure to determine the adjustment of my stop loss and to also break even. I take partial profits as the trade moves in my direction.

  12. NB: In the 5-part articles in this series, we would explain the strategies used to trade Forex, stocks, indices, crypto pairs, and other cryptocurrencies, for our VIP followers, because they are interested in making profits with us. Seun A. is one of our signals strategists in the VIP Group. His strategy is described below. Seun A’s Strategy: As a day trader, I trade mainly the short-term swings of the market either to the up or down as the price presents itself during the New York A.M. session. I trade indices so I intentionally allow any high-impact news at 1:30 pm Nigerian time for the day if there is any to play out and wait it out till the New York exchange opens equities at 2:30 pm Nigerian time. As soon as the 2:30 PM time strikes, I compare the London session high and low of the day in order to make a decision on which short-term high or low I should ride with the price to tag. However, I base my decision on what the daily candle is showing me to likely expand to judging from whatever the previous daily has done. If the current daily candle shows a willingness to move up, then I enter a buy position during a temporary retracement down at 61.8% retracement level on the Fibonacci tool and target the London session high as the short-term swing high. At this point, if the price is climbing up with more momentum, then I'll target the previous day high if it has not been tagged yet during the London session of the same day. And vice versa for a Sell setup. My risk control is dependent on the short-term retracement on the Fibonacci tool when my entry decision has been made. I usually put my Stop Loss at the price level which tallies with the 0% level of the Fibonacci tool. To get free, winning trading signals, please visit: www.predictmag.com
  13. USDC is the second-largest stablecoin, behind Tether (USDT), boasting a $42 billion market cap. Circle, the issuer of USDC, has close ties with BlackRock and, by proximity, the Fed. The company recently announced its plans to shift 80% of its holdings into a BlackRock government-only money market fund. AND… BlackRock has laid out plans to apply for access to the Fed’s reverse repo program, RPP. As Barclays put it, “RRP access would give USDC indirect access to a central bank liability and make it a closer substitute for insured bank deposits and CBDC.” Meaning? As founder of Coinbase Brian Armstrong put it, USDC is set to become the “de facto CBDC in the US.” It remains to be seen how this will shake out… (But one thing to keep in mind -- for what it’s worth to you -- is that USDC resides on the Ethereum network.) The SEC’s actions seem to fly in the face of these developments, putting the fear into those still on the fence about crypto. Meanwhile, we remain steadfast that crypto is here to stay. And we’re hard at work spotting the signals amidst the noise.” – Chris C Profits from free accurate cryptos signals: https://www.predictmag.com/
  14. The U.S. occupies a special place in the global economy. We hold the world’s reserve currency. The dollar dominates because the dollar denominates. Everybody accepts U.S. dollars; everyone wants U.S. dollars. This gives the U.S. many advantages like lowered exchange rate risk and increased buying power, but this won’t last forever. Historically, one country has held the dominant reserve currency for about 100 years (give or take 20 years). Although the U.S. was formally declared the reserve currency after World War II, it was informally used as the reserve currency since the 1920s after World War I. That’s 100 years... Again, these things don’t happen overnight. It’s a slow-moving transition that’s obvious only after a few decades have passed, but I think the days of the U.S. dollar as the world’s reserve currency are coming to an end. This shouldn't be cause for fear or alarm as we're resilient. We'll tiptoe through these troubled times, and we'll emerge stronger as a result. What’s more, I think we can do better. The positive aspect of holding the world reserve currency is that the U.S. has been able to help provide stability and confidence in the financial system. The negative aspect is that it concentrates power and influence in the U.S., sometimes at the expense of smaller and weaker nations. Moreover, when the U.S. financial system looks shaky (as it has the past few days), it causes reverberations throughout the world. I believe we’ll look back on the days of reserve currencies as a kind of “financial colonialism,” where one country had outsized power to exercise its will on smaller, weaker nations. I suspect we'll be ashamed of this period of U.S. history. We may even try to make reparations, but that day is likely far into the future. Of one thing we can be sure... The days of the U.S. dollar's dominance will eventually come to an end. History shows us it's not a question of if, but when. When the U.S. dollar is dethroned, what will replace it?” - John Hargrave Profits from free accurate cryptos signals: https://www.predictmag.com/
  15. Crypto Tax Principles “While crypto taxes can be complicated, the key principles are not. Fix these ideas in your head: These are taxable events: Selling crypto. Trading crypto. Buying stuff with crypto. Receiving crypto from airdrops, hard forks, staking rewards, and the like. These are not taxable events: Buying crypto. Donating crypto to a tax-exempt organization. Gifting cryptocurrency (though large gifts may trigger a gift tax) Transferring crypto from one account to another.” - John Hargrave Profits from free accurate cryptos signals: https://www.predictmag.com/
