Funny how they seem to do OK without our advice, Greg. 🙂 Frankly, I'm astonished to have made over 21% since I switched (what I have left of) my Super to International Shares.* The writing may, however, be on the wall, if this prediction is to be believed: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/business/2018/01/09/global-economy-set-decade-gloom-world-bank-predicts-recovery/ * Unsure what that equates to per annum… . Never dared switch my wife's Super over!~ [...]

Belated Happy New Year to all. I've been having a break from the markets as they just keep rising without any guidance from me anyway 😉 [...]

Hope everyone's having a nice break too although not sure what happens in Japan. According to a colleague who's there a lot, the Chinese get in the act a little…no actual holiday though. Happy travelling Biker, sounds like an interesting year coming there. [...]

Yeah… . Hadn't even considered _that_ aspect of cryptology! Merry Christmas to all who visit to bounce or float ideas here… May our shared wonderings enrich our lives and bring us the independence we seek for our families and loved ones. Big New Year for us, with five months travel in the Northern Hemisphere planned for mid-2018 on; after house renos in the first half. Sales of both our parents' homes in the near future; Perth _and_ Vancouver… . It's hard to believe I've actually retired, but things will be less-complicated once the missus retires in early July!~ [...]

Definitely, we're all thinking the same Biker. Like I say, I think this stuff will become mainstream. However until then it seems like a dangerous game and not just from the point of view of losing a few bucks. The security issue is the main problem. Who are we giving our details too? [...]

They seemed keen to enlist me when I visited the site, Lachlan! In the last few days, the complexity of competing cryptos makes me wonder how the average punter could ever venture into such murky waters! [...]

XSO has had a very nice run since your article Greg. Up about 10%. [...]

Biker I came across this new concept business.https://www.arisebank.com/ It seems my resistance to studying this subject has broken down a bit. My son can do a lot for me. Anyhow the platform offers visa to convert cryptos for spending on the street. The CEO has a list of worrying complaints against him. Anyhow its worth looking into. Possibly other banks will follow. Their website building and platform looks well done. [...]

Hmm, nothing new on markets this week. Sideways however its a bullish pose on the charts for now until some serious distribution presents itself. [...]

I'm pretty sure it was either Blythe Masters or J. Dimon years back now who explained in passing how they operate in a free market too. And some people would have scoffed however what they're saying is true in context. Even if you're a currency juggernaut you still can't sit on your tail. Technology/competitors …you either integrate them or completely out perform them if you're interested in having the superior business model. Or else passively watch towards Chicxulub. [...]

It was my bet that if cryptos were ever going to be a vaguely stable alternative then it would be after they receive the sovereign stamp of approval (if that's their destiny at all). Since day one they've been exchangeable for sovereign currency anyhow. Which is what caught my attention with the Aussie coins idea. I really don't think cryptos (in terms of currency) are greatly different than anything available now. They're just electronic representations of value, the value of which rests on somebodies promise in such regard. At least with the banks/gov we all know who to whinge at [...]

My immediate thought was that the RBA had suffered _extreme_ heat after floating the idea of an Ozcoin or RBAbuc. In a real-life-beats-art parallel, Gencoin gets hacked, much in the same way as N. Korea has apparently hacked Bitcoin. There's even an Asian connection involved. Is Kim Jong-un channelling Amazon Prime, I wonder? I wouldn't be surprised!~ [...]

The latest sounds negative Biker.http://www.abc.net.au/news/2017-12-13/rba-talks-down-chances-of-electronic-australian-dollar/9254380 But ya know, things aren't always what they seem. I'd keep my eye out for that Aussie crypto anyhow. [...]

Enjoying ‘Start Up' on Amazon Prime, now that AP is available through our AppleTV. This entertaining drama documents the rise and fall of a fictional cryptocurrency, GenCoin*… and has helped us understand some of the issues. Meanwhile our media seems to suggest that the RBA may consider a uniquely-Australian cryptocurrency some time in the future. Hellzapoppin'! * Googling GenCoin results in a spate of interesting (all fictional) values… . Good 4alaff!~ [...]

The things we don't understand Biker….yeah. Few assumptions 1/the rate of technological change 2/the diversity of investment and channels 3/complex regulatory frameworks Conclusion… we are going to have no way of claiming to be well informed on anything but a very narrow range of investments. So I'll just leave bitcoin to the experts (unless I need it for payments one day). Good luck to them. Hope they change the world. I have my own little empire to keep in order. Just referring back to the article, the VIX has remained flat https://www.marketwatch.com/investing/index/vix/charts Obviously a space to watch along with the indexes. [...]

I completely agree with this statement: “…and have learned that the markets don't always do what we expect them to do.” That is exactly what's happening in the US Market now. The correction is well overdue, technically, however we are in the strongest quarter of the Year along with the ‘window-dressing'period. Look at the prettiest September rally, never looked back. In my opinion the end-of-the-year rally is going to carry into 2018, at least till March. Also, Bears might sleep well, until the Yield Curve really starts to flatten. Thank you for such an informative post. [...]

Lachlan: “Yeah I don't like buying anything that's already expanded exponentially in price…” I agree. Stopped me jumping into Argosy, in fact. It doubled while I was researching it!~ I also tend to follow Buffett's advice re ‘not buying what I don't understand'… . Rules out MOST options, though!~ . 🙂 [...]
