Bitcoin Stock Exchange Could Be "More Valuable than Alibaba" / Currencies / Bitcoin

By: Money_Morning

David Zeiler writes: When Overstock.com Inc. (Nasdaq: OSTK) Chief Executive Officer Patrick Byrne launched a wiki page to explore the possibility of a Bitcoin stock exchange, it was hard to imagine the project getting past the idea stage.

But Patrick Byrne is a man on a mission.

Driven by a deep mistrust of Wall Street, Byrne has announced the creation of a division within his company charged with making this dream a reality.

In short: no speculative positions.

Coinbase’s co-founder Brian Armstrong has highlighted the difficulties in convincing the banks to work with Bitcoin businesses in a conversation with the Telegraph, we read on the paper’s website:

Originally launched in the US, it [Coinbase] recently announced that it had secured banking and regulatory approval to launch in Europe, opening its services up to 18 new markets. But the UK was not among them.

Goodbye War On Drugs, Hello Libertarian Utopia. Bitcoin The Future of Money? / Currencies / Bitcoin

By: John_Rubino

Now that bitcoin has subsided from speculative bubble to functioning currency (see the price chart below), it’s safe for non-speculators to explore the whole “cryptocurrency” thing. So…is bitcoin or one of its growing list of competitors a useful addition to the average person’s array of bank accounts and credit cards — or is it a replacement for most of those things? And how does one make this transition?

Crude Oil Price Blues (Read: Dangers) for Some / Currencies / Crude Oil

By: Steve_H_Hanke

As the price of crude oil continues its downward tumble towards $80 per barrel, I am reminded of a similar scenario from near the end of the Cold War in the 1980s. When Saudi Arabia announced in 1985 that protecting oil prices was no longer its main priority, oil production surged and prices fell off a cliff, briefly plunging below $10 per barrel, as I had correctly predicted.

Lower prices delivered a fatal blow to the Soviet economy, which ended up seeing $20 billion per year in oil revenues evaporate. The resulting fiscal shortfalls proved to be a dagger in the heart of the U.S.S.R.

Briefly: no speculative positions.

Marc Andreessen, founder of Netscape and, currently, founder and partner at Andreessen Horowitz, a venture capital firm invested in Bitcoin startups, expressed his views on Bitcoin and Apple Pay, we read on CoinDesk:

Apple Pay is the next big thing that's "freaking out" financial services companies right now, but, in the long term, bitcoin will prove to be the real innovation, Marc Andreessen has said.

We Can Police the Dark Web / Bitcoin / Currencies / Bitcoin

By: Bloomberg

Ben Lawsky, Superintendent of the New York State Department of Financial Services, spoke with Bloomberg TV's Trish Regan today on the future of Bitcoin and virtual currencies on the internet and the ability of law enforcement to police their use as they become more anonymous.

When asked whether the dark web can really be policed, Lawsky said: "Yeah, I think so...I think prosecutors will eventually bring the hammer down if these sites are being abused and people are dealing in illicit drugs, just like they would do if it was happening in the real world, not the virtual world."

U.S. Dollar Sea Change / Currencies / US Dollar

You don’t need a weatherman
To know which way the wind blows.

– Bob Dylan, “Subterranean Homesick Blues,” 1965

Full fathom five thy father lies.
Of his bones are coral made.
Those are pearls that were his eyes.
Nothing of him that doth fade,
But doth suffer a sea-change
Into something rich and strange.

US Dollar Super Overbought / Currencies / US Dollar

By: Zeal_LLC

The US dollar has relentlessly blasted higher in recent months, achieving its longest consecutive-week rally in history.  Speculators have flooded into the world’s reserve currency for a variety of reasons, ranging from Federal Reserve rate-hike hopes to festering Eurozone worries.  But the resulting massive dollar surge has left it super-overbought while breeding universal bullishness, the precursors to a sharp selloff.

While only a small fraction of traders speculate in currencies, the foreign-exchange market is the largest in the world by far.  Trillions of dollars change hands in currency trades every day, dwarfing all the other markets!  And currency prices, particularly the fortunes of the dominant US dollar, can greatly affect everything else in the financial-market and economic realms.  No one can afford to ignore the US dollar.

In not too many words: no speculative positions.

"Buy when there's blood in the streets," or so the saying goes. And we're starting to catch first whiffs of "blood," if not streaks of it in the media coverage. There's been a marked increase in articles that focus on "Bitcoin going under $300" or ones exploring the idea that it might be all over for the currency. We read on Quartz:

Bitcoin Price Swoon Illustrates Volatile, Illiquid Nature of Trading Market / Currencies / Bitcoin

By: Submissions

Steven Lord writes: The recent drop in the price of bitcoin has remindedkeepcalm many industry participants, particularly those that arrived within the last year, of the inherent volatility associated with new, immature and illiquid markets. While a clutch of bitcoin skeptics, including such luminaries as economist Paul Krugman, have touted bitcoin’s drop from the $600 range on August 1st to intra-day lows near $280 on October 6th as proof of some sort of inherent flaw, the truth is that such volatility is neither new for bitcoin nor terribly germane to its continued adoption.

US Dollar is Extreme / Currencies / US Dollar

By: Gary_Tanashian

Using Tom McCellan’s article discussing a “blow off” move in the US dollar and its very bearish net short position by commercial traders as a starting point, I would like to talk about the USD and gold and how they each fit in to the global macro backdrop.  We could add silver into the mix as well because its failure in relation to gold (ref. the gold-silver ratio’s breakout last week) is the other horseman (joining Uncle Buck) that would indicate a changing macro.  Here’s the McClellan piece:

U.S. Dollar's Ride is About to End / Currencies / US Dollar

Under the stewardship of Shinzo Abe, the nation of Japan has become a global leader in debt, currency devaluation and inflation. Unfortunately for the Japanese, Abenomics is also leading Japan into a hyperinflationary depression, as the first of his three arrows has shot right through the yen and put a gaping hole in the wallets of every Japanese citizen.

GBP Still Trading Under Pressure: Can This Continue? / Currencies / Forex Trading

By: Richard_Cox

Dollar strength continues to dominate, so if there is any way to characterize the overall behavior in forex markets for the final portion of the summer, it would be done using the pronounced bullish moves that have been see against the Euro and Pound.  Most of this positive activity in the greenback has been supported by risk aversion and geopolitical tensions (which were present in several major economic regions around the world).  This sent the PowerShares DB US Dollar Index Bullish ETF (NYSE: UUP) to new highs, and this strength came at the expense of both the Euro and British Pound (GBP), which are both trading at some of their lowest levels of the year.
