Crypto Snippets 2019 05 01

It’s been many moons since my last “Crypto Snippets” post, in fact my last one was 10 months ago. Looking through that old post, it’s amusing to see that I started it off by complaining that Ethereum had still not switched to PoS.  If I had only known…

A “Crypto Snippets” post is a multiple mini-discussion post centred on lots of little topics as opposed to one main one. Here we go:

Tether. Again.

I wrote about Tether last Friday, mentioning the problems with it and BitFinex. Since then I have seen much debate and uncertainty on online forums: people defending Tether and rumours that everything

The RED List

The Red List is a list of threatened and endangered species. That’s not the list we’re talking about today. We’re talking about this one:

From https://www.tradingview.com

That’s the little tab which I click on first thing every morning when I open TradingView. The Red List is the list of highlighted stocks, cryptos, commodities etc which I consider most important to me and which I like to keep a close eye on.

Unlike most of my posts, this one does not come from my pre-planned and dynamic list of “topics I must blog about when I get a chance”. This post was conceived last

Silver – breaking local support

This weekend I read through the latest World Silver Survey, published by The Silver Institute.  For those unfamiliar with these reports, they are published on an annual basis and are very well written. At about 100 pages in length, the document is definitely not a quick read, but you can pick and choose areas of interest, it isn’t necessary to read every table and sub-heading. You can find all the World Silver Surveys (from 1950 to date) at https://www.silverinstitute.org/all-world-silver-surveys/.

For some years it has been noted that Silver is undervalued compared to Gold and is probably the better long-term investment. Indeed it

Platinum: Crossing the Bar?

Sunset and evening star,And one clear call for me!And may there be no moaning of the bar,When I put out to sea, Crossing the Bar ~ Alfred, Lord Tennyson

Tennyson was speaking about death in this famous poem. Today I’m going to take a more positive spin on “Crossing the Bar”; this post is about life – Platinum coming back to life!

Almost a month ago I published a post titled “Time to buy Platinum?”, in which I made it fairly clear that I believed it was indeed time to buy. In fact: so good was my post, that it convinced me to

Time to buy Platinum?

Silver is a good buy. Gold is always a good buy – even at ATH (much like Bitcoin really). But what about the other precious silver metal – isn’t it maybe a good time to buy Platinum?

Platinum is unpopular at the moment, that’s no secret.

Bearing in mind what I have just said – I’m going to drop in a quote:

“Be fearful when others are greedy and greedy when others are fearful.”

~Bitcoin hater Buffett (He may not know crypto – but he does understand market herd mentality)

In other words: go out and buy Platinum now. End of post. Goodbye. See

Goldman Sach Just Jumped On The Wagon

About one month ago, I noticed what looked like a smiley face…a bottoming pattern forming on Gold.

Metal Analysis Report 12-7-18…Do You See What I See???

YES, YES, the chart is suggesting price is forming a bottom and also broke the daily down trendline last month.

Then three weeks later, I noticed some bullish unusual option activity on Newmont Mining.  But more importantly, the bottoming pattern was confirmed by the specific pattern that I look for in reversals.

Then a week later Jim Cramer jumped on the bandwagon. CNBC’s Jim Cramer said on his show, Mad Money that
