NASDAQ & Gold off to the races early, don't want to be greedy but can we get some love for Oil and maybe even BTC?
BTC is a pure crapshoot. It's best to use as an alternative currency, and not as a gambling mechanism. Besides, if BTC hits 20k, good luck trying to logon to coinbase.. it's almost impossible to logon at that point and by the time you do, BTC has swung a few thousand in either direction. BTC is a very illiquid business where the majority of BTC is owned by a select handful.
Meanwhile, as for oil, the oil price is probably the remaining true indicator of how an economy is doing. If economy is crap (or will perceived to be crap), oil drops in price. Period. There is no artificial oil price-dampening that currently exists with gold. Combine that with the fact Russia, US, and the Middle East has the ability to produce oil and what you have now is a glut, which not surprisingly leads to a lower oil price.
If you invested in stocks like VLO at 40 or even $11, congrats.. you're still way up. If you invested in VLO at $75, you're gonna be sitting on it waiting a very long time for it to rise back to that level.
