CBOE Website Crashes As Bitcoin Futures Trading Begins

The CBOE’s website crashed within minutes of the CBOE open on Sunday – which also marked the launch of the first bitcoin futures to trade on a major exchange - while the price of a bitcoin spiked 10% in five minutes as the new contract with the ticker XBT fluctuated wildly. Shortly after the initial website crash, the CBOE tweeted that "visitors to cboe.com may find site is performing slower than usual and may at times be temporarily unavailable" due to heavy traffic...

Authored by John Galt via JohnGaltFla.com, Way, way, way, way back before televisions were generally available in color, cable was a luxury reserved for hotels and the wealthy, and financial television was reserved to Louis Rukeyser and a weekly program on PBS and the “Nightly Business Report”, the idea of information beyond the 6:30 p.m. national newscast was considered absurd. In fact when the 1987 Market Crash hit live on cable television, it was the quixotic moment which...

Decoupling FOREX investing from trading

Forex is a trader's market.  So many complex factors go into foreign exchange rates, it's really impossible to conclude what will be the EUR/USD in 1 year, 10 years, or 50 years - as explained in Splitting Pennies.  Investing in Forex is like betting on the weather.  And frankly speaking, given the right climate, it can work.  For example, during the post 9/11 global market, it was assumed that USD would go down, and it did - thus propping currencies like NZD, EUR, GBP,...
