    The nice thing about Coinbase going public today is that if you want to get involved with cryptocurrency without ever leaving the almighty dollar, now you can. On Tuesday, Nasdaq set $250 as a reference price for Coinbase, though no one necessarily bought at that price because this is a direct listing. Coinbase closed trading today at $328.28, giving it a market cap of $85.8 billion, more than that of the company behind the Nasdaq exchange.

The idea behind bitcoin was relatively simple: it emerged from a specific distrust of financial institutions. That early ethos evaporated some time ago, obviously — and now, the likes of Jack Dorsey and Elon Musk shill for bitcoin and...

    In the financial sector there are hundreds – rather thousands of indicators – and quantitative models that can theoretically forecast future changes in trend. However, how useful are they? Warren Buffett and Charlie Munger, for example, always said that listening to the macroeconomic or market predictions of others is a waste of time. The truth is in between. Blindly clinging to trend following as a religion, ignoring any real-world evidence, could be a bad idea.On the one hand, Well-developed quantitative models can help optimize decision-making, on the other hand, they should not be standardized. There can always be key differences that require an adjustment in expectations and focus. As we have seen in the past year, stocks are prone to a rapid expansion of volatility in bear markets. As a result, the quantitative model vanishes. Even changing the parameters up and down sometimes is of no use. By the...

    VIDEO3:0903:09After Apple falls 17% from records, investors share whether it's a buy yetTrading Nation Apple's recent fall from grace is putting traders in a bind.

    Mexico is on the brink of legalizing cannabis after lawmakers voted to permit recreational use in a step towards curbing the power of the country's drug cartels and the narcotics-related violence that claims thousands of lives a year.   The legislation backed by Mexican president Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador looks almost certain to be approved after a 316-129 vote in Mexico's lower house.  The move to allow people to carry up to one ounce (28 grams) of cannabis and grow up to eight plants at home for personal consumption would create what has been described as 'the largest legal market in the world' in a country of 126million people.  It would make Mexico one of only a few countries, alongside Uruguay and Canada, to legalise cannabis for recreational use. A supporter of the marijuana bill smokes a joint outside the Mexican congress on Tuesday ahead of the vote in...

    By Gertrude Chavez-Dreyfuss NEW YORK, Mar 5 (.) – The 10-year US Treasury lending rate in the repo market was negative for the fifth consecutive session on Friday, as demand for the benchmark note surpassed to supply, when investors raise bets that the 10-year yield will go even higher. The 10-year repo interest rate averaged -2.95% on Friday, down from -0.50% on Thursday, brokerage Curvature Securities reported. This means that investors are paying to lend 10-year bonds, something that rarely happens. The drop in repo interest rates followed an increase in short positions in US 10-year bonds, as expectations of a faster-than-expected recovery rise. To short 10-year bonds, investors have to borrow them from entities such as money market funds, sell them, and buy them back later. The loan rate has been negative since Monday, according to traders, and hit a low of -4.25% for the week on Thursday. The...

    The Conversation Spain Taking an antigen test to party: the downside of testing negative Shutterstock / MandriaPix The COVID-19 pandemic is producing significant restrictions in our lives.

In this way, the test would be a safe conduct, a protective shield that would make it possible to compensate for relaxation in other measures:...

    The approval of a series of vaccines, promising results from many others, as well as the hope of a return to normalcy are the main culprits for the uptrend in the markets. The historical rise has caused the famous FOMO syndrome (acronym in English for ‘fear of missing something’). As a result, thousands of retail investors entered the game. Unfortunately, people soon appeared who wanted to take advantage of the situation financially. With a series of messages they managed to push the values ​​of GameStop, AMC, Nokia, Bed Bath & Beyond, BlackBerry and Silver. It was the typical scheme of pump and dump which ended up with many investors losing money. A couple of weeks later the prices began to fall in the same way that they rose previously.

    Diamonds haven’t always been a girl’s best friend. Before the 1930’s, they were no more synonymous with weddings than opals, rubies and sapphires which had been routinely used in engagement rings for centuries. It really wasn’t until DeBeers — the South African mining company which has historically controlled around 85 percent of the international diamond market — launched its “A Diamond Is Forever” marketing scheme in the 1940s that demand for the sparkly stones skyrocketed. An estimated 142 million carats of rough diamonds were dug out of mines worldwide in 2019 — often at reprehensible environmental and human costs. Pulling just one carat of diamond out of the ground demands workers to move close to 100 square feet of soil, resulting in nearly 6,000 pounds of waste material and up to a ton of released carbon dioxide. Strip mines, such as the Mir mine in Eastern Siberia below, can be...

    Sleep is a quintessential part of wellness. While no one can argue the benefits of a great night’s sleep (including improved cognition and mood), it’s amazing how long you’ll endure tossing and turning for nights on end without addressing the real culprit: your mattress. There are plenty of mattress companies out there boasting new age materials and out of the box (literally) minimalism — but there are few that deliver on uncompromising quality quite the way OkiOki mattresses do. In part, that’s because the founders of OkiOki boast 20+ years of furniture industry expertise — and after so many years bearing witness to the radical changes in the mattress industry, they began to recognize that not all of the marketed “innovation” promised by competitors was actually delivering. As OkiOki focused their efforts on engineering the highest quality product possible, they started to see that other companies were simply selling standard, base-level products that were being...

    Manhattan rent, widely known to be some of the highest in the nation, has dropped to its lowest point in nearly a decade. The falling prices come as residents have fled the city due to lockdown measures necessitated by the novel coronavirus pandemic as well as increasing crime rates.
