Many criticisms where out there when the Federal Reserve reduced the funding rate at half percent last week. Some even said they lost credibility. This is the time to worry but on the other hand, the Fed did say they have run out of bullets. Here are some further comments made on my Facebook page:
Dow Crashed on Friday Because Fed Credibility Is ‘Eroding’
t was only a matter of time, the Fed gets its credibility from the actions of the White house to an extent. Increasingly all these institutions are not seen as independent enough to make decisions that might be painful in the short term but helpful in the longer term, because they have to cater to the short term goals of the political class in power. That leads to a dangerous situation, which only shows its ugly face once a crises hits, because there is no one left who can garner the faith of the people to restore stability.
Here is a spreadsheet to show which Binance markets have lowest risk (lowest minimum order requirement) with most trading opportunity during this crash. It is quite clear to me it is in BTC and ETH. There are quite a few in both markets with decent liquidity on these pairs. Remember any US dollar crypto (e.g. USDT or Tether) or FIAT can be 10 Tether which is $10 American. That is quite high when there are lower risk opportunities as you will see in this spreadsheet. Note this file is based on an hourly timeframe.

This is video is a hodge podge of video collection of risk management from Chat with Traders. Here is the video description:
After sifting through the archive of near-200 episodes, I’ve compiled some of the best bits pertaining to risk management. As there were many bits I deemed fitting for a ‘best of’ episode, it made sense to split the compilation across two parts—this is part one, and part two will follow next (Episode 189).
The idea behind creating this compilation, is to reinforce the instrumental role that risk management plays in a traders’ ability to stay in the game. It can also serve as a go-to reference for anytime you find trading loses getting out of hand.
One other reason, is to highlight some past interviews which you have missed or skipped over. If you’d like to hear the full interview with any guest featured, you’ll find the link in the comments below.
