10fold = Bubble?
(what do you say 'bout China?)

No, the following chart is NOT Bitcoin and also not the GDP of China between the years 1990 and 2005. Both of which increased tenfold within different timeframes. Bitcoin rose from 500 USD to ca. 5,000 in a couple of some quarters; Nasdaq:

Nasdaq-Composite rising 10fold from 500 to ca. 5,000


You can go on and now try to compare the development of the Nasdaq Stock-Index above (.com Bubble) to the rise of Bitcoin from a "similar level" of 500 up to 5,000 in the following chart (XX:NYXBT stands for the Bitcoin-price in USD):

Oil (china demand/global supply), Status: Jan. 2016

EIA estimates that global oil inventories increased by 1.9 million b/d in 2015, marking the second consecutive year of inventory builds. Most important: DEMAND is still ok (my opinion), the extreme oversupply is the "problem".

This oversupply has contributed to oil prices reaching the lowest monthly average level since mid-2004. Inventories are forecast to rise by an additional 0.7 million b/d in 2016, before the global oil market becomes relatively balanced in 2017. source for text: https://www.eia.gov

Kupfer / Dr. Copper (Sep. 2015)

Wenn Ärzte schlechte Nachrichten überbringen müssen, haben sie stets zwei Möglichkeiten: die sanfte oder die harte Tour. Beides hat manchmal seine Vorteile.
