How To Profit When The Smart Money Leaves Footprints

Imagine you’re sitting at a bar in Manhattan. As the bartender’s making your drink, you overhear a conversation from the table behind you.

Two well-dressed men are talking. One looks familiar. He’s a hedge fund manager you’ve seen on TV. You don’t recognize the other guy. But, from the sound of it, they work together.

The Inside Story Of Robinhood’s Billionaire Founders, Option Kid Cowboys And The Wall Street Sharks That Feed On Them

Cryptoconvert: Why A 168-Year-Old Banknote Printer Will Soon Be Churning Out Digital Drachmas For Central Banks

If ever there were a business with dark clouds on the horizon, it should be printing paper currency, otherwise known as banknotes.

Ethereum’s First ICO Blazes Trail To A World Without Bosses

And, say former employees, the same powerful trove of information could be used to help monitor the spread of the Covid-19 pandemic.

Stock Market Crash 2020: Welcome To The End Game

The Nasdaq is on its final run and is going vertical, a classic end of bubble move. This is trader heaven and turns into speculator hell for those who think that markets do grow to the skies. It could go up a long way in price but it won’t go for long in time.
