Carmageddon Is Back On

I was telling @newageinv how I have been trying to short General Motors for years (without success) and that I might get another chance in the near future.

You see, auto-loan delinquencies are at all-time highs again.

Serious auto-loan delinquencies – loans that are 90 days or more past due – surged to 4.47% of total auto loan balances in Q4 2018, according to New York Fed data this morning. This put the auto-loan delinquency rate at the highest level since Q1 2012 and just 0.6 percentage points below the peak during the Great Recession in Q1 2011.

Bitcoin and EOS Technical Analysis: READY TO MOVE?

Bitcoin continues consolidating within a wedge just above the $3,800 support. As it approaches the apex we should expect a larger move in the next 48 hours or so.

EOS is also consolidating within a wedge. Like bitcoin, it’s approaching the apex suggesting a larger move should be expected.

In todays analysis I discuss where prices may be heading next, traps to avoid and so much more. I hope you find it helpful.

LITECOIN: a Bearish Divergence knocking on the “Golden Cross” Door

Market is keeping its boring steady state movement as BITCOIN does
while altcoins seems going back and forth alternatively day by day…

Well,
not all of them, major altcoins as BINANCE are really independent from
this behavior, In the case of BINANCE I am keeping my bullish sentiment
constant.

Also LITECOIN has demonstrated a very
interesting rise, not related to the Crypto King, BITCOIN, but,
unfortunately now I am obliged to tell you what I see in its chart which
is not bad but very necessary in order for LITECOIN to keep a proper
and sustained growth.

Where is LITECOIN now?

It is, as

Europe’s Woes

All global indices have bounced from the lows of late December due to prices being oversold.  However, the fundamental haven’t changed…economies around the world are decelerating.

Forget the ongoing trade war and China’s slowing growth — Deutsche Bank thinks “the biggest risk to the global economy comes from Europe.”

“The German manufacturing sector is flirting with recession and the Italian economy is in outright contraction. The ECB is unlikely to shift policy substantively in the near-term, leaving the economy fragile and exposed.”

Deutsche Bank expects GDP growth of just 0.9% in 2019. As a result of this fragility, Deutsche Bank fears that a

“Crypto” – Movie trailer // Staring Kurt Russel

A couple days ago a movie trailer came out for a thriller that has something to do with crypto. Apparently Bitcoin is used to launder money so they named the movie “Crypto”.
I find that hilarious! haha.

Thats like calling “The Oceans 11″….. “Dollars” because they steal USD from the casino vault.

It kind of looks like this movie is written by folks that “know” only that crypto is bad and that Russia is bad so they decided to make a movie about it. Makes sense.

Theres this tendency in the mainstream media to associate crypto with criminal activity and this movie seems to capitalize on that.
I mean of course crypto allows for money laundering. Just like every single other currency.

Your technology is shit if criminals cant find a use for it.

lol. Its hard to explain that to people. The only thing you can do is flip a middle finger at folks that try to associate crypto with crime as if thats the defining characteristic of cryptocurrencies.

Anyways… This movie looks a bit crappy but at least we are getting a movie made about cryptocurrencies.. Thats awesome, amirite!!! hahah. 😀

Ill see you around.

Help me, i suck at curation.

A few days ago i ran into a post by @shepz1 where he looks at the payouts he received from delegating to the SmartSteem bot.

In under 1 month, the returns have been to date 34.579 steem & 2.847 SBD.

On 4000 SP delegation.

So i looked at that and my first take was that it was kind of a poor return.
I compared that to my curation gains. (My active SP is exactly 3000SP+1200SP delegated to various projects)

In the last 30 days with 3000 SP i earned 24 SP (0.8% monthly return) vs his 4000 SP delegation and aprox. 41 Steem earned (1% monthly return)

I thought i was doing pretty decent considering you always lose 1 week of curation when you cancel your delegation, and having control over your Steem power and not participating in the shit show that is the trending page, while earning comparably the same amount of Steem seemed like a much better deal.

I just wasnt aware how much better it can actually get.

Slikovni rezultat za surprise funny

So i was prancing around the comment section of Shepz1 post and i ran into a guy that was claiming much higher returns then a bot can provide.
I was a bit skeptical so i replied to him and checked out his SteemWorld profile. @cryptoandcoffee.
What ive seen was that he indeed was doing much better then either me or someone that delegated to a bot.
In the last 30 days with 3600 SP he earned 54 SP from curation (1.5% monthly return) which is quite a bit more then what Shepz1 got from a bot.

https://media2.giphy.com/media/RluM0kvZXkLS0/giphy.gif

This prompted me to think that i was doing something wrong if someone with comparable SP to mine is getting double my curation.
So i asked Cryptoandcoffeee what was up and he recommended i try moving my voting to minute 12. I did so a day ago but im still waiting to see if it makes a difference. I just barely passed 5 Sp a week.

If you also checked the trending Booster post Fryst wrote you will see he claims that with booster you can make 11% back yearly and with curation you can make around 9%.
Now Cryptoandcoffee is either a curation master or something strange is going on here since if he can sustain these gains, his yearly return would be 18% which is double Fyrst is claiming for curation and 7% more then what Booster can make you.

So back to my title… Can someone please help me become a curation master? haha

Ill see you guys around. 😀

Currency Analysis Report 3-13-19…Brexit Delayed Again Part II

I wrote about the Brexit Delay two months ago,

Currency Analysis Report 1-16-19…Brexit Delayed Again

Today, U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May asked Parliament to approve the withdrawal agreement with the European Union. The withdrawal agreement was rejected by 432 votes to 202. The 230 vote defeat is thought to be the largest in U.K. political history. U.K. government now has just three working days to map out a new plan of action.

The more Brexit lingers, the probability decreases England will leave the EU. Many think leaving the EU will hurt England.

Crypto Contest March 13: Zcoin

Zcoin (Bittrex: XZCUSD) has broken out of the triangle pattern in the weekly chart.

Elliott Wave Analysis

In Elliott Wave terms, Zcoin began a wave one advance in November 2016. The red wave one (blue sub-waves i-ii-iii-iv-v) finished in December 2017, and the red wave two (blue sub-waves a-b-c) correction ended in December 2018. If this wave count is correct, Zcoin should be heading next towards the December 2017 peak in the red wave three.
