Russia is exploring ways to create a “cryptorubble”

 

“This instrument suits us very well for sensitive activity on behalf of the state. We can settle accounts with our counterparties all over the world with no regard for sanctions...

the cryptocurrency would be the same ruble, but its circulation would be restricted in a certain way...and allow the Kremlin to track its every move."

Egypt’s Dar Al Iftaa yesterday issued a Fatwa (Islamic ruling) that deems the Bitcoin virtual currency as forbidden by Islam.

...

 

“Bitcoin could be harmful to the country’s social and economic security,” Dar Al Iftaa said, stressing that the currency could break through the national security and central financial systems.

 

The Egyptian Grand Mufti’s Counsellor, Magdy Ashour, said that the currency “is used directly to fund terrorists,” explaining that its transactions threaten major damage to the economy.

 

“It has no set rules, which is considered as a contract annulment in Islam, that is why it is forbidden.” Ashour added...

I just created my own cryto -...

 

CyniCoin !!!

 

 

 

CyniCoin’s “market capitalization” is, of course, NOT a mathematical hoax.

 

CyniCoin’s trx speed is measured in msec s, NOT days.

 

CyniCoin’s trx costs are 20 cents, not 20 dolla

 

Most importantly - When you “buy” CyniCoin’s, you own something other than just an entry on a shared public spreadsheet

"Attempts to address rising inequality with the old tools are fueling frustration rather than actual solutions" CHS.

And - yes, to me, crytos are an old tool ... or at best only improvements on old tools - much like replacing a wood shovel handle with a metal rod surrounded by ergonomically correct fiber glass or plastic and adding graduated thickness and reinforcing ribs to the shovel itself... still just a fuckn shovel... same with cryto 'money'

 

... and so re stealing it

...

> ‘just bidness’ ways of stealing

You Can’t Trust the “Trusted” Intermediaries

Find your own link... news comes out about a Ponzi or theft or ‘loss’ at a cryto exchange almost daily...

 

(and don’t forget the)

> ‘legal’ ways of stealing

In that link some idiot commented “Can't work because the futures market is too small. There are only a few thousand btc in futures contracts traded each day. It's peanuts compared to the actual bitcoin exchanges. In order for what you are describing to work, the futures market would need to be pretty large compared to the actual bitcoin markets.”

Reality is more like - if the ‘need’ arises, ‘they’ can create contracts with a button push and overwhelm ANY buying pressures with shorts or vv.

 

“Bitcoin futures; the perfect vehicle to manipulate Bitcoin

Bitcoin futures provides a great venue for the big sharks to swallow up the silly sardines hoping to strike it rich. The big players can now manipulate the bitcoin market via the futures market. They can use fake money (worthless paper) to push it up or down, much the same way they did and are still doing with the precious metals markets. Which illustrates the lie behind the “Bitcoin is different” nonsense; Bitcoin is nothing but digital fiat; in some ways, its worse as anyone can issue their own cryptocurrency.” Sol Palha

 

and mentioned before the real 'legal' way to steal it hasn't fully kicked in yet... tax it in and out

 

>>> and finally - self ‘stealing’ from self

It doesn't make short term financial sense to them to build out the back office enough to process all the "know your customer" regs, so they are just slogging through a few backed up apps per day....Getting cut ahead in the que depends on how much 'money' you have for initial deposit. :)

    • This looks like a beginner question, so I'll say... Depends. Stock market studies usually focus on one of two areas; Fundamental or Technical. The fundamental trader wants to know all about the company: Who is the CEO? What does the history of company earnings look like? How does the company compare with others in the same or similar business? They often read and study the company's annual reports. The technician usually doesn't care much about the company details. If the stock price is going up, they should be a buyer. If the stock price is going down, they should be a seller. A small portion of investors believe they should know both disciplines. If you don't know which of the above are most appealing to you, ask about good books on general markets that include both fundamental and technical trading philosophies and techniques. Or ask about good fundamental books. Or ask about good technical trading books. I have about 800 texts. About 80% are technical, 20% are fundamentally inclined, so I wouldn't know what to suggest without more information from you.

    • Date : 11th November 2019. Events to Look Out For Next Week 11th November 2019.Important events are coming up this week, with UK, China and US inflation and GDP releases.Monday – 11 November 2019 Gross Domestic Product (GBP, GMT 09:30) – UK growth has “slowed materially” this year due to Brexit uncertainty and global trade wars. September forecasts see GDP growth steady, while the preliminary outcome for Q3 is anticipated to slow down. Tuesday – 12 November 2019 ILO & Average Earnings Index 3m/y (GBP, GMT 09:30) – UK Earnings with the bonus-excluded figure are seen unchanged at 3.8% y/y in the three months to September. UK ILO unemployment is expected steady at 3.9%. ZEW Economic Sentiment (EUR, GMT 10:00) – Economic Sentiment for November is projected at -22.7 from the -22.8 seen last month, as the current conditions indicator for Germany turned negative. The overall Eurozone reading though is expected to decline slightly further to -32.5 from -23.5. A lower than expected outcome ties in with the stagnation in market sentiment. Wednesday – 13 November 2019 Interest Rate Decision, Monetary Policy Statement and Press Conference (NZD, GMT 01:00) – The RBNZ is widely expected to proceed with a 25 bp cut to 0.75% as it continues to ease policy amid the slowing in growth. However, it will be interesting to see whether RBNZ will signal further easing in contrast with the latest encouraging economic data. Consumer Price Index (GBP, GMT 09:30) – The UK CPI is expected to rebound to a 1.8% y/y rate in October after dipping to 1.7% in September and August from 2.1% in July. Consumer Price Index (USD, GMT 13:30) – A 0.3% October headline CPI rise is anticipated with a 0.2% core price increase, following respective September readings of flat and 0.1%. As-expected gains would result in a headline y/y increase of 1.7% for a third consecutive month, just as core prices rise 2.4% y/y for a third consecutive month. An up-tilt in y/y gains into Q1 of 2020 is expected due to harder comparisons and some lift from tariff increases that should leave gains in the 2.4% area, which may help ease concerns about persistent inflation undershoots of the Fed’s 2% objective. Powell’s 2-day Testimony (USD, GMT 16:00) – Federal Reserve Chair Jerome Powell testifies before Congress, providing a broad overview of the economy and monetary policy. Thursday – 14 November 2019 Employment Data (AUD, GMT 00:30) – While the unemployment rate is expected to have increase at 5.3% in October, employment change is expected to have stabilized, at 15K compared to 14.7K last month. Retail Sales ex Fuel (GBP, GMT 09:30) – UK Retail Sales are expected to have dipped with a -0.9% ex-auto figure on a m/m basis. Gross Domestic Product (EUR, GMT 13:30) – Eurozone Q3 GDP growth held steady at 0.2% q/q – a better than expected report that highlighted once again that it is a mistake to reduce the Eurozone economy to the German manufacturing sector alone. The same outcome is expected on Thursday as well, at 0.2% q/q for Eurozone preliminary reading. Friday – 15 November 2019 Retail Sales (USD, GMT 14:30) – A 0.4% October gains for both the retail sales headline and the ex-auto figures have been estimated, following a -0.3% September headline dip with a -0.1% ex-auto figure. Gasoline prices should give a boost to retail activity given an estimated 4% increase for the CPI gasoline index. Unit vehicle sales should ease in October with a dip to an estimated 17.0 mln pace from 17.2 mln in September. Real consumer spending is expected to grow at a 2.6% rate in Q4, following the 2.9% Q3 clip. Always trade with strict risk management.
