Happy Saturday Folks!

Last weeks ago the Fear and Greed Index was at 74 and today it's 76.

Keep reading, watching, and listening with me each and every week!

MY HOT TAKE

The bullish momentum has spilled over into yet another week and as it comes into focus, it appears that the ETFs were in fact a buy the rumor, buy the news event; that brief sell off was not the real deal. The money flowing into Bitcoin far exceeds what is bring produced on a regular basis and wil there will be some pull backs, I believe it's up only for the next year or so.

WEEKEND NEWS

Well it appears Gareth Soloway isn't alone, Thomas Kralow has declared that it’s time to short Bitcoin as he starts his 10X in 12 Months Crypto trading challenge. Miles Deutscher believes this time is different because the last run was fueled by leverage and this time it appears to be fueled by institutions; so who will be correct? Bitcoin mining difficulty surpasses 80 trillion amid halving anticipation. So it appears that Bitcoin will unlikely be able to hit all-time high before the halving. Buttttt..... Bitcoin whales have purchased over 100,000 $BTC in the last ten days, worth around $5B!
