Something he said.

March 22, 2019 Who would have thought that after yesterday’s actions by the FOMC that the market would rally? It's hard to believe but markets - bonds, commodities, and stocks - all rallied because once again the Fed was going to hold rates steady.

Down, down get them rates down.

March 21, 2019 So, rates are coming down, well eventually. We knew that anyway. Why should the market react this way? It’s not really new news. The answer lies somewhere between expected news and announced.

Who would have thought?

March 15, 2019 Well here we are again and who would have thought?  Who would have thought those years ago that, at this point in time, the UK still has no agreement and has extended its deadline to leave the EU to June?

Steady as she goes.

March 14, 2019 Corporate bonds enjoyed a good start to the year, the best start since 2012. The strong performance allowed European issuers to issue the largest amount of debt in years with ease. The MSCI World Index also had its best start since 2012.

Chuff away.

March 11, 2019 The ECB inspired a rally and that was followed up with a bedrock of data and commentary. Lael Brainard (Fed Governor) was dovish in her comments and even suggested that the next move by the Fed could be lower.

Bye bye American dream.

March 7, 2019 The American dream has all but evaporated for the average American to buy a home, or at least that’s what a recent survey found in a national poll. Some 45% believe banks and investment firms have made it harder to achieve the dream.

Only good news today.

February 26, 2019 The big news is that Trump is delaying the scheduled increase in tariffs. China and the U.S. economies appear to be both reeling under the weight of trade barriers and a compromise is being sought.

How many times?

February 25, 2019 It seems the desire to invest overcomes rational thought and the simple fact that once again we have a déjà vu moment. Once again, a trade deal with China is just around the corner. And once again, we lose all basic instincts and add to risk.

You better you better you bet.

February 21, 2019 The issue that all investors and traders have at present is what to do. Something has to be done but what? Investors and traders need to be seen to be making money and the current environment is not helpful.
