Psst, don’t tell anyone about Ethereum

Vince Stanzione says Ethereum remains a great investment
Vince Stanzione says Ethereum remains a great investment in 2021

In case you had not noticed Ethereum(ETH) is up over 100% so far this year, yes 100% in just over a month. The good news whilst I don’t expect it all to be a smooth ride and yes there will be plenty of bumps I do expect to see Ethereum move up at least a further 100% before the end of the year and that is still an amazing return in a zero interest rate world.
Of course, I may be totally wrong but if you have followed my track over the last 35 years you know my averages are rather good, but it’s your money and your choice.

Note: This is not investment advice, and yes I get a small commission (in Ethereum if you buy) but that is it. Unlike most, I put my money where my mouth and invest in Bitcoin and Ethereum.

Vince Stanzione Shares His Thoughts on Shorts Squeezes and the Power of the Small Traders

With over 35 years of trading experience, Self Made Multi-Millionaire and New York Times Bestselling author of “The Millionaire Dropout,” Vince Stanzione, has plenty of trading war stories to share, but today is coming out in support of smaller traders and resents that Wall Street is calling them “dumb money.” 

It has long been overdue Wall Street has treated Retail as dumb money for so long, yet today’s “dumb money” is far smarter than it was in the 2000 DOT COM boom and is far better equipped with access to institutional data. The only issue he sees is that many brokers cannot cope with the surge in volume, and platforms are seeing regular crashes which makes exiting trades difficult.

Stanzione thinks what you’re seeing in markets now is not just about money. It’s a deep routed resentment against Wall Street, financial media and the belittling of the retail trader with their preaching of knowing better. Of course, the best way to teach Wall Street institutions a lesson is by making them lose money.  Stocks with high short interest and low floats seem to be the easy target right now, but this could easily change to overvalued stocks where retail “short” stocks.

“Take some of your profits and lock it out of sight. He is a big fan of holding Bitcoin (with no leverage) as a long-term savings plan”

As he approaches 52, Stanzione would tell the next generation to shoot for the stars but also keep one foot on the ground. Take some of your profits and lock it out of sight. He is a big fan of holding Bitcoin (with no leverage) as a long-term savings plan as he believe it will protect you from inflation which he says is running at 15%+ a year, not what the government tells you and all FIAT currencies are debasing to near zero.

As for trading, yes, it’s a very speculative bull market but a good trader can also make money in a bear market, so be ready to switch to short trades, put options or learn to use financial futures. Stocks take the escalator up and the elevator down so have exit plans and also have plans to profit from down markets.

For a disciplined retail trader, you have never had it so good and it’s the Wall Street institutions that are now the “dumb money.”

Why synthetic indices should be in your trading toolbox

Synthetic Indices are unique financial indices that mimic real-world market volatility and are available for trading 24/7/365. They are based on a cryptographically secure random number generator audited for fairness by an independent third party. Volatility indices have been trading for over 10 years with a proven track record for reliability and continue to grow in popularity. Deriv offers a transparent and fair platform with a continuous two-way pricing and does not second-guess which side of the trade you are going to take.

Synthetic indices have constant volatility and are free of market and liquidity risks which is often seen in other financial markets.

A good trader like a good plumber will have different tools in their toolbox to tackle different jobs. Synthetic indices have a place in your trading as there are many advantages to trading a synthetic index over a currency pair or traditional financial index such as the FTSE100 or Dow Jones. These advantages include:

  1. Synthetic indices offer high leverage, tight spreads, and 24/7 trading.
  2. They’re not affected by world events.
  3. You’ll know your exact risk at the outset, so no nasty surprises or margin calls.
  4. You can start with a low trading capital.
  5. They’re free from real-world market and liquidity risks.
  6. They’re not subject to manipulation or fixing.
  7. They’re ideal for automated trading with continuous quotes and no gaps.
  8. You have the ability to choose a range of synthetic markets with lower or higher risk reward characteristics.
  9. They’re ideal for technical trading and can be traded using MetaStock MT5 charting software and chart pattern trading.
  10. Synthetic indices are ideal for small and large traders alike with deep liquidity and fast order execution at any time of the day or night
  11. A stable, regulated, and established financial company underwrites them, reducing counterparty risk.
  12. New synthetic indices and products will continue to be offered as Deriv heavily invests in research and development.

It’s not too late to buy Bitcoin

So far Bitcoin is up 65% this year beating all major financial assets. I am receiving many
emails asking is it too late to buy? The simple answer is NO, Bitcoin still has a long way to go and in my view will reach at least $20,000 in the next 6 months but that is likely just the beginning, $40,000+ is very likely in 2021 or 2022.

You can download a recent report from greyscale here and I would draw your attention to page
11 the SF2 Stock to flow model which gives you an idea of where Bitcoin could be heading.

Of course I could be totally wrong, but in a zero interest rate world, with central banks
printing away your wealth then having some Bitcoin makes sense.

Use a strong password which you do not use for anything else, i.e don’t use the
same password you use for your email account.

You can fund your account in Pounds or Euros and then buy and sell online.
Just to be clear I am recommending buying bitcoin outright, so not margin trading or using
some speculative trading software.

“Many are pumping Alt coins which in my view are worthless, Its better to own a small amount of BTC than a larger amount of some speculative coin.”

Let me know if you have any questions.

P.S. many of clients buy a set amount of bitcoin each month which allows for the ups and downs and gives you an average price.

The Rational case for $7,000 Gold by 2030

Below you will find a link to an interesting article on Gold written by Charlie Morris someone how is worth listening to. The article outlines my own views and in fact I think we will get to $7,000 an ounce Gold before 2030.


Gold is currently trading at $1750 that is around 1400 GBP as I write. Of course Gold will not go up in a straight line however I believe it will be one of the best investments over the next 10 years.

Even before the Covid19 outbreak governments world wide were printing copious amounts of money. Interest rates are now at zero and in some cases negative and that will not change anytime soon. Just think about that, it means money has no value and in fact once you factor inflation in it is depreciating.

As well as buying gold there are many other ways you can protect your wealth and profit from current markets.

The key to understand that governments will keep printing money until currencies become worthless.
