Oil breaks above $50 for the first time since February
https://www.cnbc.com/2021/01/05/oil-breaks-above-50-for-the-first-time-since-february.html Oil has bounced back a lot from the crash earlier last year. I just wish I had a ton of land so I could have bought oil futures contracts when they were going for negative $$ and would have been paid to receive thousands of barrels which i could sell now. damn lol

#Bitcoin Interest in the world’s biggest cryptocurrency has soared this year, with investors viewing bitcoin as a hedge against inflation and an alternative to the depreciating dollar https://t.co/pquJTdzWsD https://t.co/8ItQZ1tI9s
Bitcoin’s price has more than quadrupled over the past year. According to JPMorgan, it may still have a long way to go. Strategists say there could be substantial further gains over the long term as the cryptocurrency competes with gold for investment flows. In theory, they believe, it could top $146,000. Meanwhile, Bitcoin’s price breached $34,000 for the first time over the weekend before sliding as much as 17% on Monday. But investors in the largest cryptocurrency are used to that kind of volatility. Link in bio for more on JPMorgan’s report.

A giant bluefin tuna sold for 20.84 million yen ($202,000) in the ceremonial first auction of the year at Tokyo’s Toyosu fish market — just a 10th of the bid in 2020. The drop reflects a slump in demand as the coronavirus pandemic forces people to refrain from eating out, with some restaurants in urban areas asked to close early to control the spread of the virus. The price for the closely watched bluefin New Year auction had been soaring in recent years. Kiyomura, which runs the Sushizanmai restaurant chain across Japan, paid a record 333.6 million yen in 2019 and 193.2 million yen last year. Link bio for more.

Tips on opening Domino's franchise
Hi Folks, I'm thinking about opening a Domino's franchise in Potomac, Maryland for my parents to manage. They've recently immigrated to the country so do not have a good credit score however they have the required capital. (Which according to a quick Google search is between $120,000 to $460,000) Where should I start? Any resources I can use to learn about the business? How much day to day involvement is required from the owners? Do they need to already own/lease the real estate before starting the application?
