It’s time to sideline your opinions of crypto and take advantage of the unique opportunity in front of you. An asset class worth trillions of dollars has sprouted up and developed before traders’ very eyes.
With two cryptocurrencies – Bitcoin and Ethereum – now well above $100 billion in market capitalization and the former nearing $1 trillion, it appears as though all this crypto stuff isn’t going away.
The first, most obvious way to reduce risk in your long strategies is by reducing the number of dollars that stand between your entry price and $0. Take, for example, last week’s crash in metals.
Ethereum – a cryptocurrency with a $400 billion market capitalization that’s second in the space only to Bitcoin* – fell more than 25% from its highs of a week prior at one point last Tuesday, September 7th. Nasdaq futures made new all-time highs the same day.
There comes a time when stocks grind higher at such an innocuous pace that one starts to wonder if this whole trading thing might be over. Has the mixture of the Federal Reserve and monetary controls taken risk out of the market?

The S&P 500 took 27 years to increase by $2,000 (going from $300 in 1990 to $2,300 in 2017). Just last week, the equity index notched another $2,000 in less than an eighth the time.* This exponential rise has been cause for uneasiness and questions among investors.
What if there was a market that, after months of laying dormant in a range of just a few pennies, rose by nearly 100% on guidance from a major influencer? That’s right, the next Dogecoin could be 2YR Treasury yields.
As laws concerning the usage of cannabis start to loosen across the United States, producers and distributors of its products have gained some renown and percentage points themselves. The question now looms: will pot stocks go the way of the television set or Ferrari?
Though they employ the same word, the two phrases “return to normal” and “new normal” are diametrically opposed. If you’ve witnessed a live television commercial break in the last month, then you’re probably aware of society’s return to normal; while interest rates, on the other hand, are threatening a new normal as they fail to lift off 0%.
