  1. That would be Senator Elizabeth Warren. She is well used to eating dissembling rogues and charlatans - in this particular case, one Jay Clayton - for breakfast: https://www.bloomberg.com/news/videos/2017-03-23/sen-warren-sees-clayton-recusals-as-an-sec-concern-video - and she is at the heart of that "active law making process" to which you refer, and understands full well that Wall Street banks are still ripping off their customers with outrageous fees for overseas money transfers. Have faith. All will be well. Eventually ...
  2. @ 5' 12" Thank you, Chair Powell. You may not have named them specifically, but I believe that's good enough for me.
  3. I'll have whatever he's ingesting.
  4. Especially as this particular conference was streamed live in - wait for it - September 2018 ... Give me strength.
  5. Thanks for posting this, Peanut56. She makes a very forceful argument. Let's hope that the incoming Chair of the SEC takes heed and is swift to act (no pun intended).
  6. The one statement of fact amid all this speculation. Perhaps it's time for a change?
  7. The poster to whom you refer may just be wired that way ...
  8. Thank you so much, Tripple, for your comprehensive response to my question. I shall do as you suggest and open an account with them.
  9. Thanks for the tip, Tripple. I've been away from this site for quite a while and must admit that I know nothing of Uphold. I have been using Bitstamp which I'm told is 100% secure, but this sounds like better value and, frankly, a lot less hassle as it deals in GBP. However, before I sign up for an account, two obvious but rather necessary questions: 1. Is it as secure as Bitstamp? 2. Is there a useful 'how to' page? Thanks in advance.
  10. Enjoyed your latest blog, Hodor. I particularly liked the way you mention, almost in passing, the fact that NYSE is owned by ICE. Such understatement makes me smile. Thank you!
  11. Not a summary, no, but Dan Morgan does quote from a recent report of Central Banking's Committee on Market Payments and Infrastructure, saying that when it comes to cross-border payments: Oh, how we chortled. The Committee has been nominated for, and will win hands down, the Understatement Of The Year Award for 2019, 2020, 2021 and Beyond. Patience. Keep the faith. HODL
  12. Thanks Mom. Regulation - or rather the lack of it - still seems to be the elephant in the room, but one thing I've acquired with age is patience. Amazon wasn't built in a day...
  13. For ******** read the waste material that comes from the back end of a bull.
  14. Thanks for sharing. Gottfried is working way too hard to try and look totally relaxed about the whole thing. I don't buy it. He also talks too much. The game's up and he knows it. That horse and pony v Ferrari line from Brad Garlinghouse. Thanks be to all the Celtic gods that he never made the comparison using that dread word, Lamborghini. From 17' 05" to 17' 35" Brad Garlinghouse calls out SWIFT's ******** for what it is - ******** - in 30 seconds flat.
