IPO, Pie in the Sky Valuations

I would hazard a guess that it’s probably been about two years since I first had the idea that I should write a book, but little did I know then how painfully slow it would be to write one. For somebody who typically likes to spend more time executing than planning, it’s been quite frustrating. However, if we are to believe that ‘good things come to those who wait’, I… Read More

Investors are caught in the headlights

At the present time there appears to be a lot of confusion and dare I say it, panic, amongst private investors in the market place. Investors are scared that the stock market is over-valued and that it is due either for a correction or a major crash and yet seem absolutely helpless to do anything about it. This baffles me because if you know something is about to happen to… Read More

the DIP strategy

If you have read my recent posts then you will know that for the past few weeks I have been shouting from the proverbial rooftops of what I believe to be the inevitable, impending market correction that we now all face. Through rain or shine I have been sharing with those willing to listen and even those who have no interest in listening, how the stock market is significantly over-valued… Read More

Watch out for the dead cat bounce

Although I am definitely a dog lover over a cat lover, I am an animal lover first and foremost. Thankfully therefore I have never seen a dead cat, less still one that bounces. However, I am preparing myself for that unsightly eventuality over the coming weeks. Before you ring the RSPCA I should make clear that I am of course talking about the stock market. The infamous ‘dead cat bounce’… Read More

THERE IS NO SAFE HAVEN

Following on from last week’s article I received some highly alarming messages from my avid readers (yes both of them) that struck me as being full of unnecessary panic. Whilst I make no apology for being direct when writing about something serious as an impending stock market crash, I do feel that I should put people’s minds at rest. There is some good news. The good news is that you… Read More

WHAT DID I TELL YOU?

I don’t get any pleasure by uttering those immortal words ‘I told you so’, but that’s exactly how I’m going to begin this week’s article. That’s because last week we saw the FTSE100 pull back dangerously close to the psychologically important 7,000 support line (representing a 10% fall since May’s peak) and I, like many others, have been warning about this impending crash for several months. As soon as the… Read More

NO TEARS SHED FOR CFD FIRMS

There is a saying in the City that the ‘market is always right’. Even when it’s wrong, it’s right, if you know what I mean? That’s because it’s the value that investors place on it at that moment in time. Therefore, and following this logic, the market can never be undervalued or overvalued, it’s always absolutely right; for the budding economists in you, this is otherwise referred to as ‘Efficient… Read More

WHO LEFT THEIR SWIMSUIT AT HOME?

Many years before I began trading in equities and funds I was a currency trader. In fact, one of the main reasons that I stopped was because when I first started trading foreign exchange we had the French Franc, the German Deutschemark and the Italian lira amongst many other European currencies. After the Euro came in, the entire currency market dropped on its head and thousands in the City, including… Read More

ALGORITHM TRADING IS NO OIL PAINTING

If you have been paying close attention to the stock market recently you may have seen a strange phenomenon that you couldn’t quite put your finger on. The reason that maybe you can’t put your finger on it, is because the phenomenon that I talk of has become so common place that it actually no longer feels like a phenomenon; it feels like any other day in the market.  … Read More

WHY THE FSCS SHOULD BE SAYING “NOT TONIGHT MATE, YOU’RE NOT COMIN’ IN”

Whenever you invest in anything you are assuming two types of risk, and in order to make money effectively you need to understand both of them. The first type of risk is ‘credit risk’ and the second type is ‘market risk’. Credit risk refers to the risk that the company which you are investing through will run off with your money. In other words, you could find a fantastic investment opportunity… Read More
