How Blockchain Technology is Helping COVID-19
The first phase of reponening our country after lockdown hit a number of setbacks. States and businesses within them adapted to increasing numbers of COVID-19 infections. This week we spoke with one James Lang, CEO of COVID PreCheck. His company has an early stage technology that could help businesses open with greater surety.Their new mobile app that links your verified identity with COVID antibody test results to help facilitate travel and entry to businesses. This works a little like TSA PreCheck and allows businesses to “scan” and verify who you are and within that, your “OK” status for COVID-19. In turn, you take a simple serological test for COVID-19 antibody levels which is then associated with your COVID PreCheck app.James shared details of how this works and how his company – already in the blockchain space – can use blockchain technology to ensure your privacy and data protection.

Nikola (NKLA) & The Badger Truck
RagingBull.com, LLC’s Founder and CEO, Jeff Bishop interviewed Nikola Corporation’s (NASDAQ:NKLA) Founder and Executive Chairman, Trevor Milton. In the interview Bishop and Milton discussed Nikola’s new Badger pickup truck, Nikola’s estimated production run, its battery technology compared to Tesla’s, and Nikola’s (NKLA) IPO. The meeting was hosted by RagingBull’s Elite Chatroom Host, Hitha Herzog, and attended in the chatroom by over 1,400 RagingBull subscribers.Registration for the Nikola Badger pickup truck opens today, June 29. Milton began, “The interest has been way above what we thought was going to happen. If we’re in the 10s of thousands, we’ve hit it out of the park. If we’re above that – which is what I’m seeing right now – we’re going to blow it out of the water. And if that happens, in my opinion we’ve got an incredibly good five year growth story for our investors. We’re going to announce what the reservation numbers are shortly. The excitement so far is way above what I ever thought it would be.”Hitha Herzog asked Milton, “Looking at the Badger truck, you’re certainly trying to take away market share from existing F-150 and Silverado truck owners. Are you also trying to target people like me who maybe have never owned a truck before?”Milton replied, “Diehard truck followers love their trucks. One article recently said they would give up beer, they would give up sex, they would give up everything before they gave up their truck! And truck fanatics love great trucks because it touches every aspect of their life. And these truck owners are willing to leave their brands that they’ve been loyal to like Chevy and Ford for the Nikola Badger. But we also have this whole new market segment of people that never thought about owning a luxury truck.“The Nikola Badger pickup truck is over 906 horsepower, and has 980 foot pounds of torque. It’s a monster in performance, but it’s also beautiful. It’s clean, it’s quiet, and it’s enjoyable to drive. And you have the option of an electric battery, and you can add a fuel cell, too. We’re the only ones with a hydrogen fuel cell option where you can go 600-700 miles on a single charge, and you can pull a camping trailer at the same time, too.” added Milton.RagingBull’s CEO, Jeff Bishop, a 23-year veteran trader, asked what Nikola’s financial prospects look like and how are they able to turn this buzz into business and how is Nikola able to scale production as demand increases. “What do you think you could build in the first year? And how many could you deliver?”“The first year in 2022, we’re going to have limited production, and we will probably do thousands. And then in 2023, our hope is that we can get into the 10s of thousands, and by 2024, possibly hundreds of thousands. That’s our goal. Because that takes a lot of money and expertise we’re partnering with an OEM (original equipment manufacturer), because they already know how to build 100,000 trucks or 500,000 trucks. We don’t have or need the ability to do that. And so that’s one reason that sets us apart from our competition.“But we are going to build big factories for our batteries and fuel cells. Luckily, we’re not trying to hit 200,000 builds in the first year. We’re scaling by doing thousands and then 10s of thousands, and then hundreds of thousands. And those are all quite achievable, and the automation tech partners we have already figured out how to accomplish that with other businesses. The automation partners help us and they’ve already experienced all these problems, and they can get us up and running real fast,” added Milton.Jeff Bishop then asked Milton to discuss how Nikola’s batteries and technology compared to Tesla’s.“Our battery technology is badass. It will beat Tesla’s technology and we’re going to show why at our launch event. We are the only company with a fully submerged, thermally cooled battery. That means that we can cool and heat our batteries way faster than our competition can. It’s safer and has a much lower chance for fires because dielectric battery fluid contains no oxygen, hence little chance for fires to start. We can cool and heat our batteries better, therefore performance is much better,” added Milton.Nikola went public (NASDAQ:NKLA) by using a SPAC (Special Purpose Acquisition Company) rather than through a more traditional IPO route. Jeff Bishop commented that, “This approach is smart. By taking the SPAC approach Nikola threw shade on the typical Wall Street IPO process where investment bankers take so much money just to take a company public. It also reduced the length of time it took for Nikola to go public. I believe that the success of NKLA so far shows that you don’t need the merchant bankers to run the show and take all their exorbitant fees!”In closing the interview Jeff Bishop, said, “I cannot wait to see where things go for Nikola in the next few years. We’re excited to see the registration for the Badger pickup truck on June 29, and also how things go from there, both for Nikola Badger truck owners and for Nikola investors and traders.”

Kyle Dennis looks for reasons why the market moves.Recently that led him to look at what companies could benefit from riots and non-peaceful protests.He came up with a few trades that he, and other RagingBull traders, were able to capitalize on!

COVIDTRAP. The Race to Find a Cure for COVID-19.
We invited Dr. Ji and Dr. Brunswick back today to continue the discussion about the work that Sorrento Therapeutics (NASDAQ: SRNE) is doing to find a cure for COVID-19.Dr. Ji is Chairman, President and CEO of Sorrento Therapeutics, and granted us an exclusive interview in our RagingBull Elite chatroom earlier today to discuss Sorrento Therapeutics COVIDTRAP and its early promise as a cure for COVID-19.Of interest right off the bat is Dr. Brunswick’s remarks about this approach compared to traditional vaccines. And for people who are opposed to vaccines this is approach is something they would want to seriously consider, possibly even gravitate towards There’s certainly conversation about this facet of finding a cure globally. Along with any potential cure is an apprehension of getting a vaccination.“We are not utilizing the basic immune system of the patient to actually act against the virus. When a person is vaccinated, there they introduce a foreign protein or a virus, and then the body’s own immune system reacts to that virus.”Our host Hitha Herzog pressed the doctors for whether this could be a potential solution for people who are apprehensive of a traditional vaccination.“Absolutely” said Dr. Brunswick.Once again this is an illuminating dive into the work of Dr. Ji’s team at Sorrento (they joined us a couple of weeks ago). Today, we went into great detail about the COVIDTRAP approach and its early effectiveness. Dr. Ji and Dr. Brunswick shared;Why the COVIDTRAP may actually be more effective against COVID-19 mutations, not less.That they have applied for $500M in government funding, and expect a reply about their clinical trials.Depending on the dosage used, whether patients may have to “top-up” on the COVIDTRAP antibodies.Whether there would be any rejection by the body for this approach.The doctors answered many of Hitha’s questions about the application of this treatment, and explored a lot of the deeper scientific principles behind the approach.

High Octane Options Trading
“Stupid. Just stupid!”That’s what Jeff Bishop has to say about these markets.And yet he continues to profit in them.There’s no point in fighting it and no matter what his economics and market data say the markets should be doing, the trend is doing something else, “So why fight it?” he adds.Markets almost always go up, even after sharp dips like in March this year. At the moment it must be brutal being a short seller and fighting the (current) trend in the markets.Because as we say, the trend is your friend. If you stick with the trend and worry less about market levels and whether they “should” be there you’ll be a happier trader.Jeff shared;Why he’s scaling into longer term positions and getting the right priceHow he uses covered calls as part of his trading strategy and why selling call options on stocks he already own is such a savvy (“a complete no brainer”) techniqueHow to get “paid by the market” and use protective puts as a relatively low risk strategy. “Use it to pick the price you want to own a stock at,” says Jeff.How to be nimble and adapt as a traderJeff also shares what he considers the biggest pitfall of trading!Jeff’s using his money to continue to make money even when waiting for stocks to come to where he wants to buy them!

Bringing Light to Dark Trading Pools
Look at the markets any day of the week, and you’re almost certainly not looking at the full picture—far from it! You see, there are trades being made all the while that are hidden from view of the regular public markets. These trades go on all the while, and this week our editor David Cross had me pop open the hood on these covert trades.Now, this is not conjecture or a conspiracy theory, even though this week’s article in Bloomberg that the US Government is intervening in ways we didn’t see even after the 2008 financial crisis.These trades come from the trading “dark pools” where massive block trades are made by huge-money traders targeting enormous profits. Or, in some cases perhaps to even influence the markets themselves!Why is it that the SPY (S&P 500) is being propped up and rises every night right now and yet declines during the day? Who profited recently from that enormous Microsoft trade? The economic indicators do not point to the markets being so up when they should be very down.So how are you as an individual trader able to profit from it?What are dark trading pools?Who profits from covert trades?Why you never see this chart pattern “in the wild”Is the SPY being “propped up” right now?The massive Microsoft trade made behind the scenes this weekHow regular traders like you and me can get in on the action and follow the “big money” to target profits from these hidden tradesIt’s time to shed some light on the dark pools of trading!
