Fear continues to grip traders and investors in a wrestling match between a market filled with fundamental promise and a global and domestic economic picture that is just this side of bedlam. Major U.S. indexes continue to rise and fall by full percentage points daily, moving in tune with downward pressure from Nasdaq-listed tech stocks like Facebook, Inc. (NASDAQ: FB) and Apple, Inc. (NASDAQ: AAPL).
The durable goods orders metric is an economic indicator that reflects new orders placed with domestic manufacturers for the delivery of factory hard goods in the near term or future. The US Census Bureau publishes this report every month and it is prepared based on results from the US Census Bureau’s Manufacturers’ Shipments, Inventories, and Orders (or M3) survey, which is a voluntary survey authorized by Title 13 of the United States Code.

Jan van Eck, CEO, and Gabor Gurbacs, Director, Digital Assets Strategy, at VanEck, recently responded to questions regarding the potential and the challenges of the digital assets and current bitcoin boom. What are digital assets? Digital assets are based on a shared database technology called “distributed ledgers” and represent a variety of uses.
The decision to buy bitcoin is based on one’s own investment goals, time horizon and risk tolerance. Technology investments are often appropriate for aggressive investors with a long-term time horizon. Digital assets represent a new kind of technology, but they are mainly unproven.
This is due to the fact that we believe bitcoin exposure of financial institutions is limited to market-making and trading firms. A disruption in those markets would directly affect the financial system and stock and bond markets. The price of bitcoin (SOXL) (SOXX) has risen 69,278.6% over the last five years.
Do you agree that investing in a blockchain makes more sense than in bitcoin? Almost no blockchain technologies are widely used . Although blockchain technology (SOXL) (SOXX) powers cryptocurrencies (ARKW) such as bitcoin and Ethereum, its current use is mainly concentrated in a few pockets of the financial services (XLF) (VFH) sector.
The vast majority of digital currencies leave traceable data-crumbs on the web, with some explicitly designed for traceability. The recent dark market busts (AlphaBay, Hansa, and Silk Road) can be directly tied back to the traceability of digital currencies and the breadcrumbs criminals left. Digital currencies (UUP) (FXE) such as bitcoin, Ethereum, and others are fully traceable.
