10 Thousand Foot View Of Things!Good morning.
14 months ago, an $8,000 bet was made on the Shiba Inu cryptocurrency (SHIB).  With a low market cap, the buyer was able to acquire a 16 percent stake.  That stake reached a peak value this week of just over $5.1 billion.  No, that’s not a typo.
The rate of return makes this potentially the greatest investment return in human history.  Although, it may be impossible to sell off a meaningful stake without causing the price to tank.
Shiba Ibu is a derivative of the meme cryptocurrency Dogecoin (DOGE), which was a spinoff of Litecoin (LTC), which itself was designed to be a nimbler version of Bitcoin (BTC).  So this is an example of trading a derivative of a derivative of a derivative.  With cryptocurrency trading here to stay, this record return may end up being left in the dust sooner rather than later.

Now here’s the rest of the news:

Straight to SentencingGood morning.
October is a tough month for stocks.  On average, September is worse… but the big crashes come in October.  Today marks the 91st anniversary of Black Tuesday.  On this day in 1929, the Dow crashed 12 percent, one of the largest one-day drops in history.  But it wasn’t isolated to one day, like the Crash of ’87.
That kind of drop puts yesterday’s decline in perspective.  Of course, today there are a wider group of investors, with nearly half of all Americans with some skin in the great game.  And many investors are passive, buying up assets in 401(k) and other tax-deferred plans in small amounts on a biweekly basis.  But thanks to those developments, a 3+ percent drop is still a sizeable one.  But that’s par for the course for October.  Not to worry, November and December tend to be better months for stocks.

Now here’s the rest of the news:

Oh, and did you know that 7.4 Billion dollars were spent by American last year on Black Friday?  Yeah, insane… And $4.2 Billion on Thanksgiving Day last year!
Gold currently at $1,909.86, silver at $24.47

Before we dive into DarrenDaily this morning, Moody’s Analytics uses three different models to determine presidential elections.  One model is based on consumer’s pocketbooks, one is based on stock market performance, and the final model is based on unemployment data.  Going back to 1980, the models only gave one false prediction in 2016.  For 2020, all three models predict that President Trump will “steamroll the competition.”

H E R E ‘ S …. D A R R E N ….

Of course, a lot can happen in a year, and an economy at full employment now may not look so rosy in that time!

Count on one thing-for-sure … Change!  🙂

Good morning. Monday’s reversal of Friday’s big market drop shows that fear of new Covid variants is waning.  While that may change as new data on the latest variant comes in, traders didn’t have to wait that long.  Instead, they’ve been following the BTD playbook – and buying the dip. That’s been a successful play in general.  After all, markets rise over time.  However, this trend has been on steroids since the start of the pandemic, following the shortest bear market in history and a rise in retail traders armed with stimulus checks and nowhere to go.  As long as

Good morning. The half day US markets are open the day after Thanksgiving is usually one of the quietest trading days of the year. 2021 delivered the worst one-day performance for stocks instead, as a new version of Covid out of South Africa, dubbed the “Nu” variant, appeared to be spreading. While the market has had a selloff and sentiment has flipped from bullish to bearish overnight, we’ve learned from the Delta variant that markets can be volatile, but will likely remain resilient.  Still, traders may want to lighted up on their most aggressive trades, even if that goes against

Enjoy Silence Eliminate a life of expectation.  Expect less from people, and disentangle yourself from obligations.  Learn to say no so you have more time and space to say yes to what you want in life. At home: Get rid of stuff you’re always moving from place to place.  If you don’t love everything around you, then toss it. Do your shopping once a week.  Those quick pit stops to the grocery store a few times a week take time away from something else. Do laundry less often.  Simplify your wardrobe, and you’ll have more pieces to mix and match.

Good morning. It’s been 624 days since “15 days to flatten the curve,” kicked off the part of the pandemic where the economy was deliberately shut down.  Unlike a light switch, however, it’s not the sort of thing to start back up again.  Trillions were spent propping up the economy with extended benefits and stimulus checks. The labor market is improving but still in disarray.  Inflation and job demand has pushed up wages, creating a “Great Resignation.”  And for all the time, effort, and money spent to create these new problems, those fortunate enough to invest in the stock market

Good morning, and Happy Thanksgiving. Oil prices somehow moved up on Tuesday, despite President Biden’s announcement that the Strategic Petroleum Reserve would be tapped, bringing 50 million barrels of oil onto the market on top of additional releases so far. The problem?  While that number sounds impressive, markets were pricing in 100 million barrels instead to really shock the market.  The move was small enough to earn a mocking note from Goldman Sachs (GS), which continues to see oil prices rising into 2022 on rising global demand, without even adding in factors such as inflation.  Prepare for more pain at

Good morning. No, it’s not a mythical creature from a game of Dungeons & Dragons or Lord of the Rings.  It’s a term for Organized Retail Crime.  And it’s on the rise. Pandemic-era mask mandates have made retail theft substantially easier.  And some jurisdictions such as in San Francisco have eliminated any criminal penalty or law enforcement resources for thefts under $950.  That’s caused a number of retailers to flag organized thieves, but at the cost of millions in inventory losses, including some who hit up multiple stores in some areas looking for items to resell cheaply online.
