API and EIA results this week are kind of important as well. As is Venezuela, as noted below.

govt reports are always revised. follow the market. i do. in other words, the reports are not always to be taken at face value. sometimes doc, it takes a bit more reading. take the time. south america is a bust. was a bust before energy market. imagine you're thinking the reason poor in venezuela have to travel for food and mine bitcoin rests on energy market's shoulders. you're not up to date at all and at market risk. or, you may not even be invested, just post drivel.

Certainly generalized reports do not precisely reflect a point in time, but they are data points.  Dr. Wald herself has talked of the sometimes erroneous assumptions made by the statisticians involved.  Statistics is difficult, as any honest practitioner will admit.. BTW, the API is most definitely not part of the govt.
Comment Guidelines

We encourage you to use comments to engage with other users, share your perspective and ask questions of authors and each other. However, in order to maintain the high level of discourse we’ve all come to value and expect, please keep the following criteria in mind:  

  •            Enrich the conversation, don’t trash it.

  •           Stay focused and on track. Only post material that’s relevant to the topic being discussed. 

  •           Be respectful. Even negative opinions can be framed positively and diplomatically. Avoid profanity, slander or personal attacks directed at an author or another user. Racism, sexism and other forms of discrimination will not be tolerated.

  • Use standard writing style. Include punctuation and upper and lower cases. Comments that are written in all caps and contain excessive use of symbols will be removed.
  • NOTE: Spam and/or promotional messages and comments containing links will be removed. Phone numbers, email addresses, links to personal or business websites, Skype/Telegram/WhatsApp etc. addresses (including links to groups) will also be removed; self-promotional material or business-related solicitations or PR (ie, contact me for signals/advice etc.), and/or any other comment that contains personal contact specifcs or advertising will be removed as well. In addition, any of the above-mentioned violations may result in suspension of your account.
  • Doxxing. We do not allow any sharing of private or personal contact or other information about any individual or organization. This will result in immediate suspension of the commentor and his or her account.
  • Don’t monopolize the conversation. We appreciate passion and conviction, but we also strongly believe in giving everyone a chance to air their point of view. Therefore, in addition to civil interaction, we expect commenters to offer their opinions succinctly and thoughtfully, but not so repeatedly that others are annoyed or offended.
