I mentioned the other day I was working on some interactive tools that could be used by traders for position sizing and risk management. In this video, I demo the first iteration. Please let me know what you think and what else could be added. Thanks!

We had such a good, exchange-wide discussion on "the dollar" thanks to @Weston Nakamura and @Jack Farley taking up the mantle after my last video, I thought we could now approach commodity exposure. With the reflation trade all the rage, how can we best get involved?
I think broad commodity indices are a poor trading vehicle and in the video I detail why? I offer some suggestions for better options.
What is your preferred way to gain commodity exposure and why?
Seriously though, this pullback is nothing to be surprised about. This is just bitcoin doing it's thing. If you feeling uncomfortable, your position is probably too big. Size right and ride the rocket!
The DXY or US dollar Index is often brought up as a way to play currency fluctuations, particularly as a "safety trade". In this video, I take a look at how the DXY did in the Corona Panic of Q1, 2020 and how it's done since as compared to some other individual USD pairs available in futures form. As a trend follower, I track all the major USD crosses and don't follow the DXY. I see a benefit in the diversification, and as my video shows. There are extra returns to be had both in risk off, and risk on market regimes looking at individual pairs vs DXY. @Weston Nakamura this seems right up your alley and I'd like to know what you think is the best way to play currencies in risk on/off situations.
Checking out bitcoin and the others in the same general sector and category. There have been several attempted improvements to bitcoin's protocol over the years, mostly to enable more and faster transaction per block. The price movement of this group has been very similar in direction but not necessarily magnitude. In the video I mention checking out @Aaron Wise post of XLM https://exchange.realvision.com/post/jed-mccaleb-unspeakable-riches-in-the-wake-of-fraud-5ff517927134d215ce21810b
Also I mentioned a couple of videos that were very interesting check them out here:
@Sebastian Moonjava with Eva on Graph protocol here https://www.realvision.com/shows/the-interview-crypto/videos/the-graph-protocol-enabling-unstoppable-applications
Lastly, a link to my Ethereum trade recommendation here https://exchange.realvision.com/post/long-ether-into-the-launch-of-ether-futures-5fdbafa3ff62a760942d9d1d
Taking a look at the trends in some crypto assets (BTC, ETH, LINK, XMR, DOT, ZEC, ADA) along with some general classifications to differentiate some of the different protocols. Thanks to @John Gribbin for the recommendation to check out messari.io and to @Christoph Eling and @Craig Mackechnie for suggesting some initial markets to check out. Please let me know what crypto assets you want to see next! Along with messari I also used https://www.gemini.com/cryptopedia/explore#cryptocurrencies to do some basic research.
In preparation for upcoming crypto-focused trend video series I thought it would be proper to a least get a general idea about the protocols/tokens I will be covering. The best reference I've found has been Cryptopedia, the educational/reference part of Gemini's website. They have short write-ups for each protocol that are not overly complex but aim to give the reader a general idea about the use-case and history of each project. You can find it here https://www.gemini.com/cryptopedia
For the last month I’ve been publishing a weekly Trend Update video covering a handful of interesting futures markets that are in the news or look to be changing trend without much news coverage. My data provider has just begun coverage of 21 new crypto markets besides just bitcoin and ethereum. I am planning to do a new crypto-focused video chart review at least on a weekly basis, possibly more often when things are really moving. I’m curious which markets most interest you BESIDES BTC and ETH. I’ll be sure to cover those too but what other alt-coins interest you? Keep in mind, I’m purely price-focused so I won’t be providing any meaningful fundamental analysis,just looking at price trends.
Taking a look back at our #hivemind selected trend system over a diverse set of futures markets. It seems we collectively are just as good at trend signals as we are at fundamental market selection! Some details on how short-side trades helped make the difference this year.
I really enjoyed this one @Sebastian Moonjava ! Nice work. A real-life lawyer focused on the crypto space speaking to the relevant legal issues facing individuals and the industry today. I really enjoy an expert that can succinctly speak to the history of the law and bring it in to the current situation.
