I could tank BTC whenever I want. All I need to do is buy some ;)

The only easy way  to short BTC that I know if is through GBTC. If there's an easier way, I'd love to learn about it
I think the spread with these crypto exchanges is too much, therefore timing has to be almost perfect not to be shaken out of a position. I have seen mania before, but nothing like these Cryptocurrencies, BTC is now worth almost 5 ounces of gold.
I was the Best,still the Best, and will always be the Best.

Any suggestions for a mutual fund that has a solid track record of a 4-5% return on investment?

Any recommendations for a good Android App to monitor stocks and most importantly get timely stock alerts to prices I set?
I just tried "Portfolio Watcher" and tested their "Alarms" but I did not get an alert when the stock I tested broke the level I set.

The USD is weakening again, USD/ILS is down to a major support 3.48-3.49, the Bank of Israel does not want a stronger ILS but looks like there is not much they can do,  the USD is down from 4 to 3.48 , watch the  important 3.48 support level.
USD/ILS back to the critical support of 3.48, it broke it earlier today to a low of 3.4755, breaking 3.48 there is no support till 3.40, I am short @3.502 USD/ILS .

They've been on an upwards trend ever since the market began

If you want to look at history-
The longest bull market on record went from 1987 to 2000.
Our current run would have to avoid a bear market until 2021 to match that.

Past performance is not indicative of future results

Can? Forever.
Is that likely? No
When will it change? Need a crystal ball.

Looming threats include quantitative tightening, failure to pass a (favorable) tax plan, government debt ceiling, a major disaster in either the real world or tech, etc
I'm an optimist; but only because life isn't going to give me any other good choices.

No one can tell the exact timing, people always say this time is different, it is never different, crashes and bear markets are a fact, go back and look at Nasdaq in 2000, it took 17 years to get back to the level of 2000, people believe  stocks have always went up, the crash of 2007-2009, the spx went down from 1576.1 to 672.9, this time it took 6 years to get back to the 2007 level. Of course there are many similar scenarios that took place before 2000.
