Weekly Rundown - August 28, 2022
Back to school
My kids go back to school tomorrow and it’s been a crazy week. Just a few quick notes and some articles you may enjoy.
Number 1: read the August monthly issue.
Number 2: cash is not trash. In fact, it is very useful. I hope I don’t give you any other impression.
Number 3: $14,000 seems like an extreme price for bitcoin but it fits within the range of volatility we see at market bottoms (in this case, 50% above or below $25,000).

Relax and enjoy the ride!
