The first is what’s going on in the stock market right now. The second is what’s going on with cryptocurrencies.

The market got off to a strong start here in 2020, but the year’s gains were wiped out in the selling Monday and Tuesday as investors panicked over coronavirus fears. Stocks ended up down for the year yesterday, which makes the huge outperformance of cryptocurrencies even more impressive.

Bitcoin has gone through two halvenings before, and each time resulted in explosive profits.

Guess where we are right now? Three months away from…
