HODL - 26K Think Long Term & Other Investment Trends

Access to Financial Information

It's a brand new day.......

After a rollercoaster of a ride yesterday on Wall street, record high ends the session today. The DOW Jones after breaking the 26K barrier yesterday did not sustain there. However, today.......

  • DJI closed over 26K at $26,115.62 (+322.79   1.25%)
  • Nasdaq $7,298.28 (+74.59    1.03%)
  • S&P 500  $2,802.56  (+26.14   0.94%)

Encouraging statements out of APPLE (APPL) $179.10 (+2.91 1.65%), as they announce a $350 billion investment excluding a $5 billion advanced manufacturing fund & expects to add 20,000 jobs over the next 5 years. All the while it will pay a $38 billion tax bill, so that foreign money can be moved back into the US.

Boeing Co (BA) $351.01 (+15.85   4.73%)  Travel, airbus demands seems to be the motivation behind it's strong market growth.

IBM (IBM) $168.65 (+4.80  2.93%) up on speculations of cloud computing, possible share gains in microprocessors on the wake of Intel & Advanced Micro Devices chip flaws.

On the crypto front the word of the day is 'HODL" 

As I mentioned in yesterday post. This is what the markets do. Spikes & dips......Candlesticks

Yet, rest assure that the current market actions are just what is needed......volatility! When you have a 2000% upward trend over the course of 12 months, one can surely expect this kind of market actions 01/16/2018. Where most altcoins took between a 16.00% and 30.00% dip.

People have to remember that in the early stage of the game, long-term should be the thought process. Hold, study what are the causes, act but don't over react!

There will be multiple situations over the coming months/years that will cause one to go into panic mode. Regulatory concerns, China, Korea, the US dollar, gold prices. The list can go on. Yet, knowing that you are in it for the long haul should be of some relief.  

If you are one of the early birds that got in some year ago and beyond. You are still sitting pretty. Your gains far out weight any current losses of recent days.  From the chart below, you can see that most top coins are up in the plus range over the last 24 hrs.
  • Bitcoin - $11,426.15  +8.28 (24 hr. Change)
  • Bitcoin cash - $1,769.67  8.09%
  • Ethereum - $1,045.12  12.26%  
  • Ripple -  $1.33  +33.60%
  • Litecoin -$192.89  +16.33%
  • Neo - $152.69  +30.56%
  • Cardano - $0.673  +29.61
