Latest Happenings

Well something to do with Bitcoin of course

Coindesk Feb-14-18
The undersecretary of the U.S. Treasury's Office of Terrorism and Financial Intelligence called on the international community for stronger cryptocurrency regulations to help protect the financial system and national security in a speech yesterday.

Citing Venezuela's recent introduction of the "petro" cryptocurrency as an example, Sigal Mandelker told the Securities Industry and Financial Markets Association Anti-Money Laundering and Financial Crimes Conference that rogue regimes, terrorists and others use cryptocurrencies to "exploit the financial system," "hide their ill-gotten gains" and "finance their illicit activities."

Mandleker further cautioned that a $110 million penalty levied at cryptocurrency exchange BTC-e last year for failing to register as a money transmitter was indicative of the Treasury's expectations and willingness to aggressively enforce regulation.  Read Complete Article

 

Cryptocurrencies Legal Update
Laura Anthony Feb 6-2018

On January 19, 2018 and again on January 25, 2018, the SEC and CFTC divisions of enforcement issued joint statements regarding cryptocurrencies. The January 19 statement was short and to the point, reading in total:

“When market participants engage in fraud under the guise of offering digital instruments – whether characterized as virtual currencies, coins, tokens, or the like – the SEC and the CFTC will look beyond form, examine the substance of the activity and prosecute violations of the federal securities and commodities laws. The Divisions of Enforcement for the SEC and CFTC will continue to address violations and bring actions to stop and prevent fraud in the offer and sale of digital instruments.”

The January 25, 2018 statement was issued by SEC Chairman Jay Clayton and CFTC Chairman J. Christopher Giancarlo and was published as an op-ed piece in the Wall Street Journal.  In summarizing the statements, I add my usual commentary and facts and information on this fast-moving marketplace.

This Month's Featured Article

By David Lavigne

I am a microcap analyst, which essentially makes me a stock picker. However, I also have a bend toward trying to understand macroeconomic issues and trends, with the notion that those trends often play a big role in the pricing of assets in terms of sectors (gold miners vis-à-vis gold prices) but overall as well (the rising tide raises all boats). Macro issues involving liquidity are especially topical to me, because the equity markets, and perhaps more specifically the microcap equity markets are particularly sensitive to liquidity (or a lack thereof). In

my view, when it comes to asset pricing, all roads lead to (and from) liquidity, so it may be the mother of all macro issues. To that end, in this column one year ago, I provided some cautionary language regarding the central banks and liquidity as well as some equity metrics that I think are worth revisiting.
