Who Writes, Stays

Wie schrijft, die blijft…

An old Dutch saying that I picked up yesterday. It means literally “who writes, stays.”

The origin seems to be from sports. Meaning, the player that is keeping score will always manage to stay in the game. But if we think back to many of the great artworks of history from books, to plays, and even music. Had they not been writen many would surely be lost by now.

It is my extreme pleasure and privilege to write to you every day. While I’m sure these musings won’t ever be referred to ever as art, I do hope that they’ll help all of us stay in the game.

It seems President Trump is also an author, not just on Twitter. A letter he wrote the President of Turkey was recently released. For entertainment value, instead of just posting the text here, please watch the oration from MSNBC at this link.

Ok, maybe they overdid it a bit. The language and syntax are certainly no surprise from this President and are more or less in line with what we see on twitter. The thing is, this letter is dated a week ago, before the incursion. Since then, it seems that Trump has changed his mind a bit, and no longer sees the Kurdish plight as an American problem.

Due to inaction from the President, it seems that Congress is now preparing its own measures.

Through all this, I’m quite surprised as to why the Turkish Lira is managing to hold so steady. The USDTRY has a history of extreme volatility though throughout the last few weeks it hasn’t really budged much at all.

More TON

The period of low volume consolidation in the crypto market persists. Though volumes are not quite as low as they were on Tuesday, it’s pretty clear that speculators are steering clear of taking any big bets for the time being.
