Is it Hammer Time Folks? $QQQ $SPX

We saw some major buying off the lows today ladies and gents. A lot of names were holding tight and have now put in some hammers. Does this resolve higher and is this a buying opportunity? Time will tell. All I am saying is do not be bearish because the media is bearish. Yes growth is slowing but can we rip to all time highs? Definitely.

We are one tweet away from all time highs and tech ripping higher. It’s hard to be MEGA bearish above a rising 200 day MA which you can clearly see, that is where we are right now.

Two Minute Crypto – BTC Price and Rate Cuts – A Heavenly Match?

Welcome to Two Minute Crypto. Today’s episode examines whether recent macro trends in global central bank policy will have a discernible impact on Bitcoin.

For the first time in Bitcoin’s history major global currencies have re-started rate cuts with further cuts generally expected in the coming months. Interest rates are already at or near historic lows but the new normal seems to be onwards and downwards. The FED just cut rates for the second time in three months. The ECB went further into negative territory and revamped their long-running Quantitative Easing program to the tune of $20 billion per month. A slew of other central banks such as those of South Korea, Australia, and New Zealand are also cutting rates. In addition, the FED has been repeatedly forced to pump money into overnight lending markets in order to maintain liquidity – something which hasn’t occurred since 2008. To this add a president vocally calling for zero rates or lower and the IMF publicly researching the viability of long-term steep negative interest rates.

Does any of this improve the outlook for BTC? Well, despite a lack of firm evidence to date and the recent sell-off, I would argue, yes. At the very least we are entering a period of time where one of the key market propositions of BTC will be tested – provable scarcity. We all know that BTC is limited in both minting (mining) and in absolute terms. This quality of scarcity has no doubt been pivotal to Bitcoin’s appeal and success over the past decade. However, we are now entering an era where rate cut by rate cut, the contrast between a provably scarce asset such as Bitcoin should become increasingly obvious and perhaps compelling from a long-term investment perspective.

Does this guarantee a spike in value over the coming months? Impossible to say, ever lower rates may continue to prop up other asset classes leading to further highs and a slackening of interest in cryptocurrency yields.

Nonetheless, it does offer the engaged investor an opportunity to examine whether a correlation between central bank policy and BTC price will emerge. I believe it does and it will but only over a multi-quarter – multi-rate cut cycle. At the very least, it’s worth watching for such a price relationship to emerge or indeed be disproven. I’m guessing I won’t be alone in doing so.

Thanks for listening.

Are You Ready For 5G??? – Part 6

5G ((short for 5th Generation) is the next generation of mobile communication. 5G brings three new aspects to the table: greater speed (to move more data), lower latency (to be more responsive), and the ability to connect a lot more devices at once (for sensors and smart devices). 5G will be a whole new kind of network, enabling new experiences that will change how we live, work, and play.

Equity analysts Kyle McNealy and George Notter have just come out with a recommendation for investors to buy Apple, and a target for shares to rise to $260. They say Wall Street fails to appreciate how much the company stands to benefit from fifth generation cellular network technology, which basically promises faster data connection

“In our view, current expectations for Apple’s first 5G iPhone lineup are too low. They underestimate Apple’s competitive position for 5G devices,” they said.

They expect better iPhone sales than Wall Street, where current consensus forecasts call for 190 million iPhone units sold in fiscal year 2021 — seen as a big year for 5G devices. That’s 9% below the 6-year unit shipment average for iPhone product cycles, said the analysts, who expect sales of 208 million for 2021.


But this post isn’t about Apple, it’s about Viavi Solutions. 

While widespread 5G use isn’t a household name yet, engineers are beginning to move parts and subsystems into characterization, validation, production, and deployment.  And that were Viavi Solutions comes into play. 

Viavi Solutions Inc. provides network test, monitoring, and assurance solutions to communications service providers, enterprises, network equipment manufacturers, civil government, military, and avionics customers worldwide.  And it just so happens to be 1 of 2 players in the space that makes 5G testing gear.

Viavi Solutions Inc. announced their first quarter earnings a couple of weeks ago.   Viavi Solutions Inc raised their revenue guidance from a range of $273 million to $293 million to a range of $282 million to $294 million; and raised their earning per share guidance from a range of 14-16 cents to a range of 15-17 cents.  In addition, the company approved a stock repurchase program for up to $200 million of the company’s common stock.

So if you believe in 5G, here’s an opportunity to ride the wave with a company with only a 3.5 billion market cap.  So how does one get on board, well lets go to the charts. The weekly demand at $13 is all used up,

so if price gets down to the weekly demand at $10.50, the chart suggests to take it long.

It Doesn’t Matter If The BOJ Cuts Rates

Bank of Japan Governor Haruhiko Kuroda expounded the virtues of negative interest rates Tuesday in comments that will keep market players on high alert that the central bank will take action in October.

Speaking days after a BOJ meeting that raised expectations for additional stimulus to come next month, Kuroda said he was still closer to taking action than he was in July.

“I don’t think we need to rule out cutting negative rates as a policy option at this point,” Kuroda said to reporters in Osaka, following a speech to local business leaders there earlier in the day.

Economists and BOJ watchers are still trying to gauge whether last week’s call for the review is more a signal of looming action or more a delaying tactic.


I think BOJ will lower rates, just like the ECB, the US, Bank of Australia, Bank of New Zealand, Bank of Indonesia and many others are doing as they all face a slowing global economy.  However, although all those other currencies are dropping in value, with the exception of the ugliest prettiest dude at the party, the US Dollar, I anticipate the Yen to continue moving higher.

Like the Swish Franc, the Yen is also safe haven currency as well.  However, because Japan is such a large exporter, over many decades of account surpluses, it has become the largest net creditor to the world. So during times of uncertainty, capital flows out of other currencies and into the Japanese yen, causing it to strengthen.

So where is the Yen headed next, lets go to the charts?

Monthly Chart (Curve Timeframe) – monthly supply is at 0.0103 and monthly demand at 0.00805.

Weekly Chart (Trend Timeframe) – the trend is sideways with upside momentum.

Daily Chart (Entry) – the chart suggests to go long if and once price breaches the daily supply at 0.00912.

Colchester Defeated Tottenham in the Carabao Cup

Yesterday Tottenham played their EFL match against Colchester United and lost their match. It is very sad to see Tottenham lost a match against this England League 1 or 2 team. Everyone taught this was an easy win for Tottenham but they really disappointed us all crushing alot of bet. They played draw with the team and head over to a penalty shootout which resulted in a 4-3 in favour of Colchester. Others will say this is not the first time to see Colchester knocking out an epl team but looking at the team they knocked out during those days and looking at Tottenham a team who went for Champions League finals it is very sad. Nice game though better lack next time Tottenham.

Pique Talks about the Reason of their Poor Performance

The start of the Season for Barcelona has been a poor performance said by Barcelona Defender Pique. He continue to say that the reason why some of their players are facing all these injuries is because of the pre season matches they played which has made them lose more matches and also been getting most of their key players in injury. They saw this coming but they had nothing to say about that because they have no voice to talk and now look at what is happening but he hope that Messi hwt back on his feet as soon as possible. Now they are forced to win and also is not that if Messi is not there, there wont be any replacement. There will be but it wont be up to the standard they want so all they wish is a speedy recovery for their player Messi.

Racism must Stop said by “Fifa President”

Racism has rise up again in football and this is making some of the footballers feel uncomfortable when playing because they always hut at them. So before the Fifa President will deliver the plaque to Messi as the Best Fifa Mens Player he made a speech on the racism matter that it should be out to a stop because it has been so long and is about time they stop it and remove it from soccer. I am very happy to hear that from the Fifa President. Because football is fun so there shouldn’t be any form of racism in soccer. He also added that people should to kick the racism out of soccer so that everything will move on smoothly. What is your opinion on what the Fifa President said. Share it in the comments below.

After the Drop Bitcoin Trading as Expected!

Midday Tuesday Bitcoin sold off hard crashing through the 9,400 support and getting as low as 8k and even lower depending on the exchange you use.

After that spike sell off, which was playing out while I was on air doing the scaredy cat investor show on MSPWaves, I said that the sideways action that began to occur on the hourly chart would likely continue for several hours as the 10 period average played catch up.

Now that price hit that average will we leg down?

Looking at the hourly chart in this post. Price has hit its head on the 10 period as it has come down with price consolidating and the action looks like there is still pressure on the sell side. 8,500 seems to be the level that price opened and closed on several hourly candles so it will be interesting to see if price holds that or even tries to push through the moving average to the upside.

What I’m looking for though is another leg down. I have buy orders in down at 7,650 and I already bought a little just below 8,500.

I’m actually rooting for another leg down because I’d love to buy lower.
