November 11th is Remembrance Day here in Canada and it's also the 100th anniversary for the end of World War I in 1918. Trench warfare and a huge loss of lives on both sides. It was about 'Queen and country' back then.
The Mid-Term elections are over in the US and more of an interest to Canadians than usual where I sense a general dislike for the current President with the recent US - Canada trade tariff squabbles and other issues. His party lost the majority in the 'House' and in two years, we'll see if he can hold on to power for another four.
The investor world liked those results and the Markets have been upbeat since then with normal fluctuations to come, depending on what's happening on a daily basis not only at home but around the world.
On the flip side of the digital coin, Crypto's haven't swayed much since the big Market sell off days of late October. The coins move more to the issues inside the Crypto online world and any country imposed laws/rules that try to bind or restrict it's freedom coming from Governments and lobbying Bankers.
Bitcoin remains the benchmark of all the Altcoins and the most traded everyday. BTC is still relatively unknown in Canada but I figure that will change in the future. Perhaps Banks will come out with their own 'coins' down the road at some point with underlying fees of course.
