So what, are those thanksgiving-table-chatter buyers just now starting to realize there are other cryptocurrencies?

What % are you guys holding in international equity? Currently holding ~15%, wondering if I should bump it up a bit.

Thanks guys. I just see how high the PE ratios are for domestic and it makes me want to hedge a bit.

Should we have a 'traditional' investing thread and a 'crypto' thread? (feel like some people might just not be interested/turned off by all the crypto talk)

No way, it's another sign institutional money is pouring in, hedge funds, etc. I've never seen anything like this. 6 months ago currencies were taking leaps and retracing their moves looking for support. Now the moves just stick with hardly any retracement at all.

I was initially 20% international at the start of the year. I adjusted this for a more European focus (10% Euro, 10% Total International) then added a 4% Emerging Markets position. Overall, international has been good this year but I have recently been underperforming vs. the S&P. The S&P is 6% higher vs. EM, 2.5% higher vs. Euro focused, and 1.5% higher than total international. The S&P has just had a hell of a year.

I will likely rebalance into the new year as I didn't rebalance in June and let me international position run so it is a few percentage higher than my target asset allocation.

I am fine with Crypto staying in this thread. Can we add it to the thread title somehow?

Yeah, but then we can't gloat.

you guys also need to start looking at the weed stock market in Canada that is also traded on the OTC in the US.

the gains are almost as significant as digital currencies but the fundamentals and liquidity is far superior.
