Crypto’s Devil wears Prada

CRYPTO’S DEVIL WEARS PRADA Since the GFC exploded with a massive BANG there has been endless apportioning of blame. The US Congress passed laws, The UK spat its financial chewie leaving the EU and taking its financial might with it. ASIC went on a rampage issuing Enforceable Undertakings and Bans wherever it could. And so the list goes on. Such actions are fairly and squarely aimed at a metaphoric horse that has not only bolted, but run so far it’s tired, stopped and had a drink and is now looking for a rest. A question that is rarely discussed or even raised is who invented these financial instruments of mass destruction and could it happen again. (OK so we have asked and answered the second question many times but work with me here…) So let me introduce you to Blythe Masters AKA the […] 150

Australian Share Market says BUY

AUSTRALIAN SHARE MARKET SAYS BUY! It’s unusual for markets to stay stagnant for long. It’s one of the great things about stock markets, they are in a continual state of flux, always moving, always creating opportunities. That is until they aren’t….. The All Ordinaries has been as still as a statue! Having been caught in a price range of less than 200 points for the last 5 months. It’s almost as if rigor mortis has set in – and it had the stench of slime from a dormant pond! This is very unusual price action indeed. You see it lulls investors into a false sense of “New Normal”. It desensitises them from the natural volatility of the market. But just like the Beast can’t hibernate forever, markets can NOT continue to move in such a benign manner endlessly… And so the Beast stirs… SO […] 150
