December 18 Dan Maltby Marketing Newsletter

The calendar says we have a week to get Christmas shopping completed…which means 6 days to get started.

Futures markets are stuck in pre-Holiday mode, or something. Boring. I see the CME opened their bitcoin futures contract Sunday evening, which makes me think we have seen the beginning of the end of The Mania. I think bitcoin farmers everywhere will soon feel like dryland HRW farmers in The Great Plains…extremely disgruntled and underappreciated. I’m not sure, but I suspect the Russians will be growing those bitcoins on cheap computers everywhere.

Another thing constant, beside cheap wheat everywhere, is continued dry weather. Last week was dry in The Plains, and this week is expected to remain dry too…


One day this might matter. It will be early March before you know it.

uh, how many shopping days to Christmas again?
