Market Wrap

The price action of BTC is just toying with us. The 24-hour high of $49,836.44 reminds us in very stark terms that regaining the magical $50k level is tough, and once there, retaining it will be tougher still.


I am half-tempted to sell some BTC today (NOT investment advice) for the very first time in my life.


By doing so, I am quietly confident that would be the trigger for us to smash through that $50k barrier so we would all benefit from my personal sacrifice.


Occasional Series – Lily Cole and that burqa photograph

Amazingly, Lily Cole believes that wearing a burqa is a virtue signal. She believes that by wearing one she is lauding diversity.


I suspect that any woman, trans or otherwise, would not enjoy the restrictions put upon her life in places where being forced to wear a burqa is a key part of the culture. When imposed by force, not choice, the word for it is misogyny and it is the antithesis of diversity, Ms. Cole.


Occasional Series – Scottish independence

Government statistics (I know, but there are times when even the CCC team have to ignore my sceptical view of the world) show that revenues per head in Scotland are £11,500.


Government statistics (I know … blah blah blah) show that spending per head in Scotland is £18,000.


I might have to get my calculator out, but I think the implications of those statistics (I know … blah blah blah) are evident.


I struggle to understand why anyone in England isn’t furiously promoting Scottish independence.


Bring it on I say.


(Tin hat at the ready …)


Which is nice, because generations ago, my forefathers were tin miners in Cornwall)


And if you want to go woke on me, trust me, at the time it was the men in the mines, not the women. So, use of “forefathers” is entirely justified given this context.


Despite this cultural division of labour between the sexes, I do believe that anyone wearing a Burqa during Cornwall’s time as the tin centre of the world was doing so on an entirely voluntary basis. I wholeheartedly support their right to have made that voluntary decision.


Curious Cryptos’ Commentary – Golden Cross

I read that despite the recent threat from a “Death Cross”, we now have a “Golden Cross”.


I am spectacularly unqualified to comment on such matters. Larry – our resident Technical Analyst – will provide far more insight than I am capable of.


Curious Cryptos’ Commentary – It is Sunday

I am not sure you want me to take up any more of your time.
