IT’s CCN, not CNN LOL

Kkkk without custody security, yes they are right kkkkk

In other words, they’ve built up a sizeable long position over the past months and their breakeven is closer to $16-17k so this is a desperate attempt to pump and dump. Watch out for the con people and do not get suckered in. Miners are already churning faster than demand and it’ll all normalise on the bitcoin front this year. No more insane gains.
This is cool, then the fair value of 1 BTC will become > USD 400,000 HODL !

My Joke Cryptocurrency Hit $2 Billion and Something Is Very Wrong
1. hope he kept some doge for himself.
2. how fiat works and how the human economy works is even more cryptic, illogical and parasitic (than commensal). (given none of the other animals depend on this method of viability).

banks borrow with less rate and lend at higer rates! if this can work, then why not doge?

reality is, money is a human fairytale. anything is possible. even a Doge

Jamie Dimon says he regrets calling bitcoin a fraud and believes in the technology behind it
https://www.cnbc.com/amp/2018/01/09/jamie-dimon-says-he-regrets-calling-bitcoin-a-fraud.html

its not his fault / this man has been in news more because of bitcoin than any of his company’s achievements

cryptocurrency investors who did not do their research, did not know that j p moran was heavily invested in the ethereum alliance and they failed to question why the ceo of j p morgan (just another private bank) became the official bitcoin doomsayer…

New  XLQ for Bitcoin and Cyrptocurrency with Coinmarketcap access 

New  XLQ for Bitcoin and Cyrptocurrency with Coinmarketcap access

This can help with the industry data fro crypto currency from coinmarketcap

The xlq 6.0 is available for download from http://www.qmatix.com/XLQ_Download.htm

 

What’s new:

 

Coinmarketcap

 

Coinmarketcap is now available as a day source for cryptocurrencies, with their data being updated every 5 minutes. It works differently to other sources, in that once any symbol has been requested it will request the data for all their symbols, allowing you to see them in the day list, sort by rank etc. and paste to and monitor further in excel. With the install there is now a xlqcryprocurrencies.xlsx in the program files directory showing the additional formulae returning data from them, i.e.

xlqRank

xlq24hVolume

xlqMarketCapVal

xlqAvailableSupply

xlqTotalSupply

xlqMaxSupply

xlqPercentChange1h

xlqPercentChange24h

xlqPercentChange7day

 

Under xlq preferences / data source specific / Coinmarketcap you have options to:

– disable them as a datasource in xlq.

– store the data on exiting xlq.

 

Breaking change:

xlqMarketCap and xlqMarketCapMkt which returned the market cap as a string have been removed and are now replaced by xlqMarketCapVal. Data is returned from IQFeed, Yahoo and Coinmarketcap.

 

Installation

 

Note: If your license has expired, you will need to renew it in order for this new version to function. Before downloading and installing you can verify your license by right clicking on the Q in the task bar (while xlq is running) and choosing “About”. If the “Good for updates through” date is earlier than the release date, you should renew your license from this page: http://www.qmatix.com/XLQ_Purchase.htm. If your license has expired and you would like to purchase a new license to work with the latest release, please contact me for a discount.

 

This version requires an updated Microsoft Visual C++ 2017 Redistributable, i.e. version 14.12.25810, which if not yet installed will automatically be downloaded and installed. In such a case the installation process will require an internet connection and a reboot.

If the runtime libraries are not already on your computer, you could alternatively install them from the links on the site.

 

If you visit the site and do not see the new download, your web browser would be showing cached pages. Click refresh in your web browser (pressing ctrl at the same time if needed) and your web browser will show the latest contents.

 

Please email me (leov@qmatix.com)  or reply to this email if:

  • You would like to receive notifications when beta versions of xlq are available.
  • There is anything you would like improved in xlq, or any feature you would like to see.
  • You no longer wish to be notified of new releases.

 

Thank you for your continued support.

64 bit version Dukascopy Forex tips with Bitcoin crypto addition

64 bit version Dukascopy Forex tips with Bitcoin crypto addition

This is correspondence from some very knowledgable in Dukascopy JForex on tips for Memory, Installation, and surprise Bitcoin trading


1) JForex heap space
it says min. RAM 1GB here: https://www.dukascopy.com/swiss/english/forex/trading_login/
But it is too little most of the time.

Do you use 64 bit Java ?
Have you increased the heap size?
Probably you have, but just in case here come my instructions on this topic

—> I have done this which helps


2) Allow more memory usage of JForex
Don’t use the installed JForex, use Launch JForex 3 (No-installation) instead!
To increase the memory you have to edit the JForex start file, which you get from this website if you click on “JFOREX DEMO START”: http://www.dukascopy.com/swiss/english/forex/trading_login/marketplace_demo_login/
You can use the right mouse botton to save the file to a destination where you can find it. From there you should be able to edit it.

Here is everything in detail:
a) First of all please check your operating system. It has to be a 64 bit operating system.
b) Then check your Java version. It has to be a 64 bit version. If not, deinstall your current Java and install the 64 bit version. You can find it here: http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/java/javase/downloads/jre7-downloads-1880261.html
download the latest JRE 7, 64 bit version: Windows x64 . Take Java 7 as it is better tested with JForex. But it should run with Java 8 as well.
c) Instead of running JForex from dukascopy.com, you have to download the jForex.jnlp file on the hard drive and edit it as mentioned above.
d) Open the jForex.jnlp file and search for the following line :
<java version=”1.6+” initial-heap-size=”32m” max-heap-size=”512m”/>
e) Edit it and set the max-heap-size to 1512m or more. This gives JForex 1.5 GB of max. memory or more.
f) Then run JForex from the modified jnlp file on your hard drive by a double click. Log in.
g) Be aware: when Dukascopy makes JForex updates, you might have to download the new jnlp file again and redo the previous described steps.

 

-> Have not tried but prefer to run the downloadable self running without the JNLP option


You might then see that JForex uses way more memory than 700 MB, e.g. while back testing, you will see this usage in the task manager.
You can also watch your current JForex memory consumption in JForex by activating the box “Show Java memory heap”, you can find this in Menu Tools->Preferences->Advanced.

3) Running serveral JForex
Have you ever tried to open several JForex on the same account.
This shares CPU cores and should increase speed.
Maybe you should open 10 instruments per JForex. Subscribe only to instruments, which are used in the opened JForex.
—> that would be useful but a wonky programming trick. Would it not just be better to have more RAM on a server while watching more instruments? e.g. in my case 40 to 60+

—> Not bad so congrats on that. I am getting more comfortable but i may do topic of it next Monday


6) BTC/USD on Dukascopy
Have you also detect Bitcoin mentioned here:
https://www.dukascopy.com/swiss/english/forex/jforex/forum/viewtopic.php?f=113&t=56002
https://www.dukascopy.com/client/javadoc3/com/dukascopy/api/Instrument.html#BTCUSD
Seems they get ready for Bitcoin and Ethereum.

BryanWelcome to 2018! Let’s kick ass this year!

Which Bitcoin crypto currency bot project? Gekko vs ccxt vs Tribeca vs Blackbird

This is so confusing but I lay it on the line with this query

We met sometime in the distant past, and we’re LinkedIn. Anyways, I was learning about crypto trading bots on YouTube and came across your videos. I was excited to see you’ve been checking out ccxt and gekko. I’m looking to experiment with arbitrage using automated software. I need to learn a lot… about a lot. First, I want to pick a tool and start looking at data. Where are you at with these and which would you recommend. I don’t know either JavaScript or Python so with would be fun to pick up.

BTW have you checked out Blackbird and Tribeca?

Which is most appropriate crypto currency exchange for you and Bitcoin trading

Which is most appropriate crypto currency exchange for you and Bitcoin trading

From the Telegram group so big thanks from this person:

I honestly don’t think there is such thing as a ‘best exchange’ at the moment, which is why most people I know in crypto have accounts with multiple exchanges (I have around 10 in total). Even the good ones have their flaws:

Coinbase/GDAX: I still think it is a safe bet in terms of their trustworthiness (backed by a huge company, tightly regulated in the US etc), but they only allow you to trade BTC, ETH, LTC, BCH and one or two fiat currencies depending on where you live.

Bitfinex: has a great platform and great trading conditions (high liquidity, good margin requirements etc), but as you know, there are some lingering question marks about some of their activities. For what it’s worth, I do have an account with them and I don’t think they are in the business of robbing their clients. If it weren’t for some of the bad stories coming out of Bitfinex, I would probably use them as my main exchange.

Bithumb: forget about it unless you live in South Korea; they only allow trading against KRW and is essentially useless for the rest of the world.

Bittrex: very liquid and a great selection of pairs–I have used Bittrex for most of my altcoin purchases in the past year. However, the trading fees are quite high, and the platform has been struggling to cope with the influx of new users (although, this is true for the vast majority of exchanges).

Binance: great selection of pairs again (they seem to be listing new coins much faster than Bittrex). As such, I now use Binance for a lot of my altcoin purchases. However, I’m not keen on the platform at all (it just feels really unprofessional), and one really irritating thing is that it only allows you to buy/sell cheaper altcoins in integer amounts.

Poloniex: there have also been some bad stories coming out of Poloniex, but I’ve never had a problem with them. My view of Poloniex is that everything is mediocre; mediocre selection of pairs, mediocre interface, mediocre everything. I don’t use it very often nowadays.
