Interest in cryptocurrency markets among traders is on the rise, especially since this red-hot asset class has a feature that the overall stock market has lacked for the last couple of years: volatility. Its abrupt swings in price make it an interesting arena to observe, though those swings also keep some potential traders—wisely—on the sidelines.
Two derivatives exchanges, the Chicago Board Options Exchange and the CME, recently launched futures trading on the digital cryptocurrency bitcoin. These securities don’t trade actual bitcoin, but instead are based on indexes of bitcoin prices that are calculated slightly differently. Putting aside the risk reflected in last week’s roughly 40% bitcoin plunge, these aren’t retail-friendly products in their current form. However, market observers expect that to change over the next six months.
In a bid to interest younger clients to whom it can eventually offer more services, Morgan Stanley has launched Access Investing, a robo-advisory product. Built on the same software chassis used by the firm’s investment advisors, the system takes a customer through the portfolio-creation process, defining goals and assessing risks.
@KimwithpanacheG@realDonaldTrump@BarackObama That location is great for a hotel. It's terrible for an embassy, which requires a lot of security. Those in the know say that not one US Taxpayer dollar was spent on the new facility. Informed citizens, who dig down beneath statements that appear wacky, will save us all.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
