    Markets Report: Bitcoin sees rejection at $19,500 as all-time highs expected

After hitting $19,420, subsequent performance was less self-assured, and a retracement overnight bottomed out at below $18,700.

    Schiff’s son holds some quite radical views on economy, but Twitter trusts the 18-year-old kid more than the famous gold bug

    In his Sept. 7 tweet, Schiff also started a poll asking Twitter: “Whose advice do you want to follow? A 57-year-old experienced investor/business owner who's been an investment professional for over 30 years or an 18-year-old college freshman who's never even had a job.”
