Poll: Are You Bidding On Bitcoins Today?

A couple of days ago we came across an article on Bloomberg about an upcoming auction (6/27/14 - Today) on a cache of Bitcoins worth about $17 million. The auction is for 29,656 Bitcoins, which are part of more than 144,000 the FBI transferred to U.S. Marshals after shutting down the Silk Road marketplace and arrested its operator last year. This auction offers a rare opportunity to secure a large amount of the virtual currency at one time.

Here's a link to FAQ's about the auction - Bitcoin Auction FAQ's

POLL: Do You Think Putin Is Going To Invade The Ukraine?

In all the years I've been following the markets there comes a time like now, when geopolitics takes center stage. I am of course referring to the recent annexation of the Crimea by Putin. The question now is with a very tepid response from the US and the EU will Putin say to himself Crimea was easy I'll do the same thing with the Ukraine. With an approval rating of 80% back home in Russia, Putin and has little to worry about as he practically walks on water in the minds of most citizens.

Do you think Putin will expand his Crimea take over to the Ukraine?

Poll: What Best Describes Your Position Heading Into Next Month?

With January coming to a close, 2014 is certainly off to a rough start. Looks like the DOW will close down about 4% for the month, the S&P 500 down close to 2.5% and the NASDAQ down around .80%. And, it doesn't look like the news is going to get better any time soon.

The Fed announced this week they are going to cut another $10 billion from their $75 billion bond buying program, to make it $65 Billion. When will they pull the rug out completely?

Jobless claims rose more than expected by 19,000, to make 348,000 total claims. The four week moving average for new claims, considered a better measure of underlying labor market conditions as it irons out week-to-week volatility, edged up 750 to 333,000.

With all of that in mind, we wanted to ask....

What best describes your position heading into next month?

Should Janet Yellen Be The Next Federal Reserve Chief?

The challenges for Janet Yellen if she becomes the next Federal Reserve chair will require both the steely intellect and the personable style that many attribute to her.

Deciding when to slow the Fed's economic stimulus. Forging consensus from a fractious policy committee. Calculating the effects of any economic slowdown from Washington's budget fight. Facing volatile financial markets. Absorbing new members at the Fed.

First, though, Yellen will have to get there: She'll need to overcome Washington's toxic political environment and win confirmation from the Senate.

It's almost enough to make you wonder why she'd want the job, but a better question is....

Should Janet Yellen be the next Federal Reserve chief?

Yellen is widely seen as a "dove" on Fed policy: She stresses the need to use the Fed's tools to boost growth and reduce unemployment in the sluggish aftermath of the Great Recession, rather than worry about igniting future inflation. [Read more...]

Twitter, will you buy it?

Twitter unsealed the documents for its planned initial public offering yesterday and says it hopes to raise up to $1 billion in one of the year's most eagerly awaited stock market debuts.

The documents revealed for the first time how much money the social networking company makes, which has been a long running mystery. Founded in 2006, Twitter has never turned a profit and has an uninterrupted history of losses totaling $419 million since its inception. But its revenue is growing and we thought we would ask.....

Will you buy Twitter stock?

Trading superstitions - Do you have any?

With today being Friday the 13th, I thought it would be fun to see to if our readers had any trading superstitions. I've heard of all kinds superstitions over the years such as, never trade in the first 30 minutes, never set stop-losses on round numbers, don't triple dip a stock, and never sell a stock crossing past $90. And then we have mine, I never buy a stock on Friday or at the open on Monday. In every attempt, I've ended up on the wrong end of a trade. Maybe I just have bad luck!

I would like to know...

Friday Poll: Big Brother Is Watching

Reports came out today that the NSA and FBI are using a program, code-named PRISM, to tap directly into the central servers of nine leading U.S. Internet companies, extracting audio and video chats, photographs, e-mails, documents, and connection logs. The same program also collects similar data from all of the major credit card companies as well. In other words, pretty much every second you spend online is being collected and archived by the federal government, which leads us to our poll question today.....

Are you for or against the government spying on your personal records?
