Going to be a short one today, guys, because what I'm really looking for is your feedback. Depending on whom you believe, we're either on the brink of WW3 or the whole thing is basically over, so move along there's nothing to see here. Obviously my primary concern is the potential impact on the market (as mercenary as that sounds). Yesterday it got knocked around a bit, but today all the world markets are up, presumably on hopes of de-escalation.
So I'm wondering how seriously we need to take this. The whole mess in Turkey a few weeks ago made the market look shaky, and now there's this, so I'm forced to wonder if the market is just looking for an excuse to go lower in dramatic fashion.
And then there's Bitcoin. I buy BTC every Monday morning, and I got mine yesterday for $582.97. At one point yesterday it went over $700, and that was before I had dinner. I'm not sure if it's oligarch money trying to find a way out of Russia/Ukraine, if we have Her Royal Majesty to thank, or if an unknown New York bank regulator's off-hand comment is the cause. If Bitcoin becomes a flight to quality in times of turmoil, well, then we've got a whole new ballgame.
