TechCrunch notes, Coinsetter - a NY-based startup looking to launch a trading platform for Bitcoin has raised $500,000 in seed capital. The platform will allow leverage (via margin) and the ability to short the market.

Very few people none of them chartists have understood the difference of Fed QE and ECB QE.
The Fed may indeed stop QE4 before a particular level of unemployment is actually achieved, the ECB can never stop QE.
The very thin and even alleged LTRO backflow adds to serious doubts in EUR.

It makes sense on a macro perspective, deflationary/deleveraging environment before inflation returns, just a question of timing. And our leaders are masters at deferring the inevitable.
