**What Are Gas Fees?** To drive a car, you require fuel. To execute a smart contract on a blockchain protocol, you need to pay a fee known as Gas. In technical terms, Gas refers to the unit of measure on the amount of computational effort required to execute an operation or a smart contract. Wallets like MetaMask enable users to interact directly with the blockchain protocol, choosing which amount of gas they wish to pay. There are several websites where you can track gas prices. The system works on a standard supply and demand mechanism. The price of gas can fluctuate from time to time depending on the network demand. If there are more people interacting on the blockchain executing smart contract operations, due to the limited amount of computing resources on the network, Gas price can increase. Conversely when the network is underutilized, the market price of gas would decrease. **Why Are Gas Prices So Expensive?** Gas fees can be set manually, and in a situation where the network is congested due to high utilization, transactions with the highest gas fee associated with it will be prioritized for validation. Validated transactions will be finalized and added to the blockchain. If gas fees paid are too low, the transactions will be queued up which can take a while to complete. Therefore, transactions with lower-than-average gas fees can take much longer to complete compelling users to pay more to have their transactions processed quickly and efficiently. In many instances, gas fees can be outrageous. Rising gas fees demonstrate the need for blockchain networks to be scalable to process more transactions and at a lower cost.

**PivotBoss Pre-Market Video [October 22, 2021]: 4-Day Narrow Range in NQ** OCTOBER 22, 2021 — FRIDAY AM The ES and NQ remain mostly, but have found themselves within developing narrow ranges and low-ADR days overall. The NQ has developed a 4-day narrow trading range, which could trigger another phase of expansion. A downside break could offer a bear trap with a rally to follow, as qHI is still above. Crude Oil remains range-bound, but still has a target between 86 and 87 ahead. Gold has found some strength above 1800, which could lead the way to 1835-1840, but strength has been faded quickly after rallies.

I'm positioned away from tech, aside for a few names. I went overweight low PE DE dividends and low beta. Early this week I moved some capital from energy to gold. Time is ticking on the TINA trade. Highbeta, high PE is running on fumes, imo. Near term > @Schmidy23 said: does rut make the break on back of weak big tech?

U.S. stock futures looking mixed on the final day of trading for the week, but a much better picture then what it looked like initially overnight following the first night of disappointing earnings overnight as shares of tech companies Intel (INTC) and Snap (SNAP) led the declines.

While the majority of earnings thus far to start quarterly earnings (about 20% in for the S&P 500), the potential impact of supply chain disruptions and labor shortages on profits is starting to take center stage this earnings season. IBM tumbled 8.2% after it missed market estimates for quarterly revenue, while Tesla (TSLA helped lift the Nasdaq. The story of the day was Digital World Acquisition Corp (DWAC), the special purpose acquisition company (SPAC) that will merge with former President Trump’s social media company, shooting up 356% on Thursday, closing at $45.50 a share.

By Marc Jones LONDON (Reuters) - World stocks slipped on Thursday as the upbeat mood that carried the Dow Jones and bitcoin to records a day earlier fizzled out, while a pause in the oil rally stalled rising global bond yields. Other major action saw Turkey's lira backflip to new lows after the country's central bank slashed interest rates again and default-threatened China Evergrande's shares plunged 11.5% after a $2.6 billion stake sale fell through. Other risk and commodity-sensitive currencies such as the Australian and New Zealand dollars and South African rand also hit the skids, giving the safe-haven Japanese yen a rare lift after it had fallen to a four-year low versus the dollar. [/FRX] "There is little bit of risk aversion," said Societe Generale (OTC:SCGLY)'s Kit Juckes, who pointed to the higher yen and the fact that both European stocks and Wall Street S&P 500 futures were both in the red. On the lira's woes, veteran emerging market watcher Tim Ash at BlueBay said the message Turkey's central bank head had delivered with the rate cut was, "I listen to Erdogan and no one else. Screw you guys!" Commodities also eased, with Brent crude futures down 1.2% after touching a three-year top and Chinese coal futures extending a sharp pullback after Beijing had signalled it would intervene to cool prices. "The U.S. stock market has gone up for six days in a row, bitcoin's made a record and the U.S. bond market is calm. On the surface it looks benign," said Andrew Ticehurst, a rates strategist at Nomura in Sydney. "But below the surface, we are uncomfortable about a number of things," he added, chiefly the slowdown in China's economy seen in data earlier this week and concerns about potential fallout from Evergrande's troubles. Evergrande will default on $19 billion of international market bonds if it doesn't make an already overdue coupon payment by Monday. It would the biggest ever Chinese default and one of the world's largest too. Lehman Brothers' collapse added up to $35 billion. Late on Wednesday, Evergrande confirmed it had abandoned plans to sell a $2.6 billion stake in its property services unit. Its shares ended down 11.5% in Hong Kong. Rival developer Kaisa, which was the first Chinese firm to default in 2015, was seeing its bonds hammered again too as worries mount about its fate. It wasn't all bad news though. Financial news provider REDD reported that Evergrande had secured an extension on one of its lower-profile bonds. Shares in some other Chinese developers also drew support after a number of top Chinese officials had given reassurances that the troubles would not be allowed to spin out of control. [.SS] " onerror="this.style.display='none'" class="msg-img" /> TALKING TURKEY Turkey's lira dropped 2% against the dollar and was by far the worst performer in FX markets as the central bank cut interest rates down to 16% from 18%.The policy rate had been cut by a percentage point last month, with the lira already on a run of record lows, after another major ousting of policymakers underlined worries about the bank's independence from the government. "We have seen strong outflows from debt in the last three weeks, probably due to uncertainty with the currency and increased risk perception," IIF economist Jonathan Fortun told Reuters. " onerror="this.style.display='none'" class="msg-img" /> Wall Street futures were down 0.3% after a blizzard of earnings had helped the Dow Jones touch an all-time high on Wednesday, with the S&P 500 finishing within touching distance of a record too. The VIX volatility index, sometimes referred to as Wall Street's "fear gauge", also ticked up having dropped to a two-month low the previous day. But a soft finish on the Nasdaq had flowed through to tech-stock selling in Tokyo which fell 1.9% and in Hong Kong, where the Hang Seng fell 0.5%. In the government bond markets that drive global borrowing costs, longer-dated U.S. Treasury yields were just starting to stir again steadied after rising with inflation and growth expectations on Wednesday. After a groggy start, the benchmark 10-year U.S. yield was nudged the previous day's five-month high of 1.6730% again, while Germany's 10-year yield, the benchmark for Europe, was fractionally higher at a still negative -0.10%. "The strong focus on the volatile (bond) curve environment in the euro area looks set to stay, at least until next week's ECB Governing Council meeting," UniCredit analysts told clients. Investors have figured that surging energy prices and tightening job markets will pressure top central banks such as the U.S. Fed and ECB to either raise interest rates or at least rein in the stimulus. Fed funds futures have priced a 25 basis point U.S. rate hike in the third quarter of 2022 while eurodollar markets expect higher rates as soon as the second quarter.

**PivotBoss Pre-Market Video [October 21, 2021]: Strong Low in Crude Oil** OCTOBER 21, 2021 — THURSDAY AM The ES and NQ are currently trading within very narrow pre-market ranges, but maintain an overall bullish trending structure. However, decent price action has yet to be seen this morning. Look to avoid the chop, and fade the edges. Crude Oil has developed a strong low at 80.78 in the previous session, which means we may see a 3-5 day move higher toward the 86 to 87 zone. Gold remains a mess within the 1760 to 1800 zone.

HX HAS MADE THE SMALL CAP MARKET HOT AGAIN. SO BE VERY CAREFUL ON THE SHORT SIDE. LOTS OF TRAPS TODAY IMO. LESS IS MORE!!!! HX - LOW FLOAT THAT TRAPPED EVERYONE YESTERDAY! This is a DO NOT SHORT. I have NOT located shares. I dont want any part of this. I rather let it tank today and short size tomorrow. AVOIDING IT DWAC - Donald Trump's new media company. I am not really in love w/ this stock bc there is a billionaire name attached to it. Will likely be avoiding this on the short side JRJC - This is a sympathy to HX and this is etb! This can ALSO TRAP. Avoiding this on the short side FCEL - I like this to short a bounce scaling in 8.30 / 8.40 / 8.50 / 8.60 lines COIN - Potential first red day setup. DO NOT USE SIZE ON THIS. Why? Because the price is very tied to the bitcoin price. If bitcoin ramps this will too. So will slowly scale a bounce to short every $1 312 to 315 and stop over 316. WIDE RANGE USE LESS SIZE

For the moment, China Evergrande debt contagion fears, inflation, Fed tapering, rising commodity prices are having no effect on global stock markets with the CBOE Volatility index (VIX) settling around its lowest levels in about 2-months. As for yesterday, the Dow Jones Industrial Average touched an all-time fresh intraday high while the S&P 500 flirted with its all-time intraday record highs (rising a 6th straight day) after strong earnings results and forecasts from healthcare companies and as banks advanced amid rising Treasury yields. The 10-Year Treasury yield spiked to 1.6730% early, a fresh five-month high sending the S&P 500 Bank Index higher for a fifth-straight day, for its fourth-straight record close. Technology underperformed as the Nasdaq Composite closed slightly lower as inflation fears crept into the market late day following comments from Federal Reserve President Quarles. In Asian markets overnight, The Nikkei Index fell -546 points (1.87%) to settle at 28,708, the Shanghai Index inched higher 7-points to 3,594 and the Hang Seng Index declined -118 points to 26,017.

@CCChicago #P I V O T B O S S
I'm confused how the ADR Targets Indicator works. Are they fixed levels based on last period's high/low, or do the levels fluctuate based on changes in the ADR? Since it's an ADR Target indicator, I'm assuming the latter. However, in that case, I don't understand how they are calculated. Is it the Average Period Range starting from last period's close price? Or current period Pivot? I want to understand the indicator so that it helps with my confidence to use it. I put the indicator on my charts, and the placement of the target lines make no sense. Can you please explain what the 75% and 100% levels are calculated from? What point do they start? I understand that they are 75% of the ADR, but from what starting point please? I'm confused.

By Hideyuki Sano TOKYO (Reuters) - Asian shares advanced on Wednesday and U.S. long-dated bond yields edged up to a five-month high on rising optimism about the global economy and corporate earnings, while the yen slipped to a four-year low on the dollar. European stocks are expected to trade steady to slightly lower. Euro Stoxx futures were down 0.2% and Britain's FTSE futures was almost flat. MSCI's broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan arose 0.65%, led by 1.3% gains in Hong Kong, while Japan's Nikkei was almost flat and so were mainland Chinese shares, weighed down by more weak data on the property sector. "Earlier this month, stagflation was the buzzword on Wall Street. But now excessive pessimism is receding, especially after strong U.S. retail sales data on Friday," said Norihiro Fujito, chief investment strategist at Mitsubishi UFJ (NYSE:MUFG) Morgan Stanley (NYSE:MS) Securities. In New York, the benchmark S&P 500 index gained 0.74% to finish just 0.4% below its early September record close while the CBOE market volatility index fell 0.6 point after earlier hitting 15.57, its lowest level since mid-August. "Tech shares and other high-growth shares that would have been sold on rising bond yields are rallying, which clearly shows that there is now strong optimism on upcoming earnings," Fujito said. Earning reports will be in full swings in many countries over coming weeks. Dutch chip-making machine maker ASML Holdings and Tesla (NASDAQ:TSLA) are among those that will release results later on Wednesday. The positive mood saw U.S. bond yields rising further, with the 10-year U.S. Treasuries yield climbing to as high as 1.673%, a level last seen in May, at one point. It last stood at 1.650%. Shorter yields dipped, however, with the two-year yield slipping to 0.395% from Monday's peak of 0.448% as traders took profits for now from bets that the U.S. Federal Reserve will turn hawkish at its upcoming policy meeting in early November. Investors expect the Fed to announce tapering of its bond buying and money markets futures are pricing in one rate hike later next year. "The Fed is likely to become more hawkish, probably tweaking its language on its assessment that inflation will be transient. While the Fed will maintain tapering is not linked to a future rate hike, the market will likely try to price in rate hikes and flatten the yield curve," said Naokazu Koshimizu, senior strategist at Nomura Securities. In the currency market, rising U.S. yields helped to boost the U.S. dollar to a four-year high against the yen of 114.695. In addition to U.S. yields, the yen was dented by expectations of a wider trade deficit in Japan due to rising oil prices and on views the Bank of Japan will stick to loose monetary policy even as other central banks move to tighten their policies. The Chinese yuan held firm, trading at 6.3760 per dollar in the offshore trade, near Tuesday's 4-1/2-month high of 6.3685. The currency was helped by improving sentiment after China's central bank said spillover effects from China Evergrande Group's debt woes were controllable. Risk-sensitive currencies held firm, with the euro ticking up 0.1% to $1.1643. In cryptocurrencies, bitcoin stood at $63,699, near its all-time peak of $64,895 as the first U.S. bitcoin futures-based exchange-traded fund began trading on Tuesday. Oil prices eased slightly in Asia but held near multi-year peaks as an energy supply crunch persisted across the globe. U.S. crude futures traded at $82.59 per barrel, down 0.45% on the day but near Monday's peak of $83.18, its highest level since 2014. North Sea Brent was off 0.4% at $84.71.[O/R] China's coal futures slumped 8% in early Wednesday trade, a day after they fell 8% to their downward limit in night trading, as the state planner said it was looking at ways to intervene and bring record high prices of the fuel back down to a "reasonable range".

By Karen Brettell NEW YORK (Reuters) - The dollar dipped on Tuesday as the rapid rise in U.S. Treasury yields paused and other currencies, including sterling, were boosted by expectations of sooner-than-previously expected interest rate hikes. The greenback reached a one-year high against a basket of other currencies last week as Treasury yields surged and as investors bet the Federal Reserve may need to increase rates to address stubbornly high inflation. Yields appeared to stabilize on Tuesday, however, which reduced demand for the greenback. The dollar’s move lower on Tuesday was also likely exaggerated by technical factors as investors unloaded long positions. “The movement in rates hardly explains extent of the USD drop,” analysts at Scotiabank said in a report. “Rather, it seems USD long liquidation has snowballed into a broader clear out of positioning, triggering a technical reversal in the USD generally,” they said. The dollar index against a basket of other currencies was last down 0.27% on the day at 93.67, after earlier dropping to 93.50, the lowest since Sept. 28. The euro gained 0.29% to $1.1644. Currencies, including sterling and the New Zealand dollar, are benefiting from rising interest rate increase expectations. The British pound jumped 0.60% to $1.3810 as money markets priced in a cumulative 35 basis points in rate hikes by the end of the year. New Zealand's dollar gained 0.95% to $0.7152 after data on Monday showed the fastest consumer-price inflation in more than a decade. Britain and New Zealand have led a rise in short-term bond yields, with short-dated yields climbing comparatively more than in the United States. The Aussie touched a six-week high of $0.7476, shrugging off dovish minutes from the Reserve Bank of Australia's last meeting. The yuan hit a four-month high as fears about contagion from property giant China Evergrande's debt troubles receded and some of its peers made bond coupon payments. Policymakers said late last week the situation was controllable. The offshore yuan strengthened to as much as 6.3788 per dollar, the strongest since June 10. In cryptocurrencies, bitcoin rose as high as $63,338 for the first time since mid-April, closing in on the all-time high of $64,895.22.
