When I logged on to my computer this morning, the first thing I wanted to see was how, if at all, the Greek debt crisis was resolving, especially considering that I proposed yesterday that I expected that, after all the posturing and political rhetoric, a deal would be struck. When I came to the ADVFN newspaper, there were, as I had expected, several  post already published, but the one that caught my attention was Andre Minassian’s Why Euro Was Created? I could not help but compare Andre to John the Baptist, the original “voice crying in the wilderness.” Whilst some might consider that label somewhat acrimonious, I bestow it with dignity and honor upon a man willing to tell the truth …

 

Why Was the Euro Created?

01 Jul 2015 @ 14:33
Let’s get a little conspiratorial here. Why would sovereign nations give up their currency and economic freedom when they have at times fought for thousands of years to keep their identity, economic independence and freedoms to do what they see fit and best for their country or people? The answer is, absolutely no logical reason whatsoever. They were simply tricked by their leaders to...
 

Greece will be saved…for now!

01 Jul 2015 @ 13:16
I feel we have a bit further to go with the bull market, so my guess is the Greece situation will be saved for now anyway till we have hit another high on the S&P, target 2,200. The game plan here is that Greece will go bust in the near future, so will the Euro and we will have a stock market, banking and Euro crash all at the same time… but not until we have surprised everyone by...

Greek Crisis: Time’s Up! Deadline for Payment Missed

30 Jun 2015 @ 23:21
The clock struck midnight in Athens and Greece became the first advanced country ever to fail to repay an IMG loan. It is now formally in arrears, having missed the deadline for the payment of €1.6bn. This puts the country even closer to the Grexit, where it leaves the euro. It’s not definite yet – Greece made a last-minute suggestion for a new bailout programme and Eurozone ministers will...
 

Greece from a Common Sense Perspective

30 Jun 2015 @ 16:32
I awoke before sunrise this morning and found a message in my inbox from the BOSS, asking if I would “write a piece about Greece.” I said, of course that I would. After having tended to some business, it is now four hours later and I can see that the entire continent of Europe is in a dither, wondering what is going to happen. As I sat down to pen (Pen? I haven’t seen one of...
 

David Cameron will be pleased that we're not holding a Brexit vote this week

30 Jun 2015 @ 15:51

Italian unemployment statistics this morning showed that Italy’s unemployment rate held flat at 12.4 percent in May. This was despite some recent more promising data suggesting that European private credit data is showing signs of improving, helping to...

Speaking on Tip TV, Chris Justham, Relationship Manager for Seven Investment Management says that we should watch out for the effects of highly leveraged “circular investors” borrowing against their existing portfolio and reinvesting that cash back through their brokerage accounts.

30 Jun 2015 @ 08:40
Gulf Keystone stock (LSE:GKP) has broken out of a long-term base and this could be the beginning of a persistent bullish run. The price trended south in January to March 2015. The gap that occurred in February simply proffered an opportunity to sell short in the context of a downtrend. Since April, the stock has been moving sideways, forming a strong base.
