Windsurfing in a winter whirlwind


Recommended Posts

Ironic, when the most unstable of forces (Trump) finally exits, under duress, stage left, the worlds economies get exactly no time to breathe a sigh of relief. For the 2nd Friday in a row, nervous profit taking abounds. Markets , almost in totality are on the move and heading south for the winter (it seems). Naturally the outlier is Bitcoin, which is like the mad cousin at a family reunion where no one is quite sure what they will say or do next. 

It would appear that markets are becoming aware that the virus is not just going away. Far from it. More of the world is locking down again, even as the vaccines are rolled out post haste. This would appear to give a different complexion to the rosy, the only way is up, opinions of legions of equity traders, who may end up being skinned by forces so much bigger than themselves. Was it ever thus? Perhaps the way of the contrarian may be an apt strategy  in this climate of uncertainty. Certainly till spring. Perhaps one may be advised to take profits when they are there and not wait for more. and move quickly.  Position traders may have to adapt accordingly, especially if the day of the week ends in "y".

It is interesting to see the inflation figures both for the US and Uk. it would appear the trend is on the up. Considerably so in the case of the US. This does not translate so well for equity, but is converse for commodities, especially food. We shall have to keep a ken eye on the weather. 

Am hedging furiously currently, though am of the bias confidence will return when the (Covid hospital and death)  numbers show sustained reduction. For how long is a moot point, but long enough for a decent swing (imo).

It's like windsurfing when it's too windy really to windsurf. You either get better at windsurfing, get very wet and a bit scared or, at worse drown. Beware out there, it's blowing a hooley!

    • With BTC making its exponential highs, a couple new projects are springing up incredibly fast. The narratives popping up right now are gaming and AI projects. Through my research, I found a new gaming project with some good gaming use cases and tokenomics. The project is, flappyMoonbird. It is a web3 game metaverse with a Player vs Player based on a bird themed scope. At this moment, the project’s team has announced 3 games; Racing bird, AI birdnopoly and FlappymoonBird inclusive, these have gameplay and demo released. The game has also incorporated Play2Earn to its framework, while playing users are given latitude to play games casually to earn mystery boxes, and its native $FMB tokens and other prizes. After reading exhaustively about this project, I was on the lookout for where to buy it from. Reliable platforms like bitget have expressed intent to list it through its deposit to list activity. Consequently, by depositing some amount of it ($FMB) on the CEX, the platform will list the token and this will undoubtedly provide the project with further exposure just the same way it has done for some of its popular projects. From my personal experience, projects that are often incubated by the CEX in this manner turnout to perform exceedingly well. Taking a cue from projects like $CSIX and $GRIMACE that went through same procedure, after they got listed, the projects performed quite well and are still performing with very good price action thus far.  On a safer note, if the project doesn’t scale through the listing procedure, all funds can be withdrawn seamlessly. The project looks quite promising and I think with the platforms concerted efforts, it will get listed along with good price action.
