Update on Cryptocurrencies: September 18th, 2022 By, Nolan Loxton

Bloomberg announced in May of 2018 that they had created a cryptocurrency index called The Bloomberg Galaxy Crypto Index.

The huge sell-off early on Tuesday, September 13, 2022, had both the perma-bulls and the end-of-the-world gang pushing their agendas hard and fast. In particular, I had just read a piece, late last week, from an investor and writer that I really like. But, it was pushing the bullish agenda, big-time. And to be honest, bad news sells. So touting yesterday’s market slam as the biggest down day since 2020 was easy headline fodder. Persistent inflation news sent the Nasdaq down by -5.2%, with the S&P off -4.3% and the …

Find Your “One Thing” to Optimize Your Study Time By, D. R. Barton, Jr.

I remember the first time I sat down in one of the best private financial libraries that I know. So, so, many great books, both new and old, surrounded me. I felt truly inspired. The thoughts of so many people were there for the reading. The stronger feeling at the time, I must admit, was one of pure overwhelm.

Plus, when I get to, I have a weekly Zoom call with an incredible …
