The value of a piece of paper…

Finally, after many months of study, exam preparation, training at the office, I don’t know how many liters of coffee ingested, failing one exam three months ago and affecting all my private environment and family… today, I have passed the PMP certification exam…

And the results have been surprising for me since I get a result far above the target which is outstanding taking into account that after failing the exam on February, when I thought I was very well prepared, I did not have so much good expectations this time…

Honestly, if I would have failed this time I don’t think I would do it again…it has been a complete “odyssey ” for my already overloaded old brain… and the examination fees are a little bit so high.

The money has not been a problem despite it is not cheap nor the exam fees neither the training documentation…The worst has been the invested time. I have studied every time I could, on the planes and airports, at the hotels, at the waiting rooms or even at the bathrooms…

I had to reject many appointments and activities during the last weeks because I spent the remaining hours after working and almost the whole weekend studying at the Public Library because at home, with two children fighting, was totally impossible to get focussed… Poor kids… also my attention on them has been lowered these days…

Now I am a “Certified Project Manager” which, it does not tell you so much about but it is very appreciated in the field where I work since 20 years ago already, engineering, besides that… Project Management is almost a philosophy of life, an orderly way of planning and doing things which I like…

From today I can resume my daily routine, be more with the family, plan for more social events and increase my Running activities which I have reduced a lot.

Do not forget: Perseverance and Determination are the keys of success.


Bitcoin, EOS, BNB, BAT, ETH, LTC and XRP Analysis: Preparing to Move?

Bitcoin has held above $7,500 for 3 days now. We’re starting to see price get squeezed with lower highs and higher lows. It looks like we may see a larger move in the next 3-6 days. The weekly chart looks extremely extended. A decisive break below $7,500, could usher in a the larger correction many are waiting for.

Zooming in on the 4 hour chart, things are a little less clear. I can certainly make an argument for a short term break above the prior swing high. In addition to a tightening range (which could break either way), we’re starting to

The S&P 500 Level To Watch Is 2800

Morgan Stanley warned that a collapse in trade talks between the United States and China could tip the global economy toward recession. The caution comes a week after Bank of America warned that the ongoing trade war between the world’s two largest economies could “push the global economy into recession.”

“We are unconvinced that companies will generally be able to fully offset tariff costs through raising prices or through cost efficiencies elsewhere, meaning tariffs will press on margin,” Wilson said, according to CNBC.

He said that if Trump followed through on his threat to levy 25 percent tariffs on remaining Chinese imports,

Trustworthy Crypto Information

For quite some time I have been monitoring the wash trading situation in crypto. 

For those of you who may not be aware, wash trading is rampant in the crypto world. Unscrupulous exchanges do everything in their power to look a lot busier than what they are, ultimately hoping to make more money for themselves in the process. This isn’t a lesson about wash trading, if you want to know more about that then I’m sure you know where to find Google.

Today I want to tell you about CoinGecko. A meant to do this a week ago when it (I’ll tell

Currency Analysis Report 5-21-19…US-China Trade War Affecting Indonesia Too

Indonesia’s central bank said on Thursday it will consider whether there’s room to ease monetary policy, the first indication it’s given this year of possible interest-rate cuts to unwind a series of hikes in 2018.Bank Indonesia left its benchmark interest rate unchanged at 6%, as expected, with Governor Perry Warjiyo telling reporters in Jakarta that the policy stance is “cautious neutral” and data dependent.After 175 basis points of hikes last year, policy makers in Southeast Asia’s biggest economy are reluctant to ease too quickly to avoid destabilizing the currency, which is already under renewed pressure from rising U.S-China trade tensions

Why Don’t My Otherwise High-Achieving Friends ‘Get’ Crypto?

Why Am I the only One?

If you are in your mid-thirties to mid-forties you may have noticed something odd – none or very few of your smart and financially successful friends ‘get’ crypto’. Sure, they’ll listen politely and even throw in the odd nod of understanding but the light bulb never seems to turn on. These are same people who have in the past invested in stocks, bonds, and property and who are always on the look-out for opportunity and yet when it’s staring them in the face, in this instance, most choose to ignore it.

Why is that?

Well for this

Elliott Wave Analysis

In Elliott Wave terms, SunContract began a wave one leading diagonal advance on December 12, 2018. The red wave one finished on December 29, 2018, and the red wave two correction ended on January 29 this year. The red wave three (blue sub-waves i-ii-iii-iv-v) advance finished on April 8, and the red wave four (blue sub-waves a-b-c) correction ended on May 14. If this wave count is correct, SunContract should be heading next towards the April 8 peak in the red wave five.


CARDANO: Possibly a good setup…

CARDANO is one of these Blockchain projects that any crypto investor will have to consider in long terms positions. Specially these days since, after having lost more than 97% of its highest value at ATH, it is presenting a healthy and promising set-up, under the shadow of the BITCOIN rise.Under a pure TA perspective Nowadays, CARDANO presents a very attractive setup for a Bull run, however, uncertainty these days is everywhere and there is no “big announcement” supporting it besides its continuous development constantly going on.

The Elliot-Wave count for the daily looks pretty consistent. ADA seems still working on
