Don’t Waste Your Payday Cash on Bank Overdraft Charges / Personal_Finance / Current Accounts

By: MoneyFacts

As the last day of the working month, today could well be the time when workers get paid their monthly salary. Some may be breathing a sigh of relief as their pay packet hits their bank account, but those customers who were in their overdraft may find that they are missing some of their hard-earned cash as it becomes wasted on excessive overdraft charges.

According to the latest research by moneyfacts.co.uk, the upcoming overdraft changes due this week from Lloyds Bank may be the perfect prompt for borrowers to check how they use their overdraft facility and whether the changes make them better or worse off.

A guide to select the most trusted brokerage firm / InvestorEducation / Learn to Trade

By: Kavinesh_A

Increased demand for online brokerage firms

More and more people are choosing to invest in the stock market and avail the benefits out of it. Not many years ago, it seemed to be a rather risky choice for the commoners to invest in stocks and options. If you are not a professional in the financial field and you do not know the basics of the stock market then it can make you lose your hard earned money upon investing. Moreover, the banks, financial institutes and a few brokerage firms backed by the former two establishments were the only options to choose from. There are a hell lot of rules and regulations to follow and it was not a very convenient option for the common people to track the market and trade easily. But, the scenario has changed drastically with the introduction of internet-based megbízható broker for trading stocks or foreign currencies. The online brokerage firms are very convenient and easier to trade with.

When Will Rising Yields Benefit Gold? / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2017

By: Jordan_Roy_Byrne

Over the past two years, Gold has been inversely correlated to bond yields. In a low inflation environment, falling bond yields drive real interest rates lower which benefits Gold. Conversely, rising yields are generally negative for Gold. When long-term yields exploded higher in the second half of 2016, Gold declined hard. Now with long-term yields threatening a potential major move higher, Gold and gold stocks have sold off and there is a risk of further losses. However, at somepoint rising yields can push Gold higher.

500 Years of a Protestant Reformation / Politics / Religion

By: BATR

The evolution of the Christendom since the crucifixion of Jesus Christ has been marked with contention and disputes among different factions of believers. From the offset, the banning of the agnostic gospels from accepted church tenets to the East–West Schism of 1054 and the wars of religion that overwhelmed Europe following the Protestant Reformation, illustrates that a heated conflict has always existed among Christians. No doubt disputes over doctrine motivated many to break with their brothers and sisters in Christ. However, the underlying catalyst for a clash in congregations stems from an objection to the authority structure that surrounds the Vatican and the Holy Sea. Church jurisdiction and the demand that the dominion of the Church of Rome, which rests upon Pontiff Supremacy, has been at the core of many differences throughout history.

Almost All Countries In Europe Have Border Issues / Personal_Finance / European Union

By: John_Mauldin

BY GEORGE FRIEDMAN : For centuries, Europe has fought wars over borders. In the 19th century and the first half of the 20th century, Europe’s borders shifted wildly. As empires fragmented, new nations arose and wars were waged.

After 1945 and the beginning of the Cold War, a new principle emerged on the Continent. The borders that existed at the end of World War II were deemed sacrosanct—not to be changed.

By: John_Mauldin

My friend Andy Xie, based in Shanghai, is a very independent-minded investment analyst and economist. With a PhD from MIT, he has been at the IMF and was a star economist for the Morgan Stanley Asia-Pacific group.

His often bearish calls on various parts of the Chinese economy have elicited a lot of criticism from Chinese officials and retail investors. I have been on the stage with him several times, both on the same side of debates and on opposite sides—he is a formidable opponent!

Olivier Garret : The cryptocurrency craze continues.

Having seen the astounding rise in Bitcoin’s value, those who remained on the sidelines are now kicking themselves for not buying it when it was first released. Surely, they’d be millionaires by now.

But is the meteoric rise of Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies really an indication of true value?

US Debt Revelation Numbers / Interest-Rates / US Debt

By: Michael_Pento

The federal budget deficit widened in the fiscal year 2017 to the sixth highest on record, creating a budget shortfall of $666 billion. That is up $80 billion, or 14%, from the fiscal year 2016. The overspend resulted primarily from an increase in spending for Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid, as well as higher interest payments on the debt due to rising rates that drove up outlays to $4 trillion, which was 3% higher than the previous fiscal year.

Is Trump’s Tax Reform Bullish for Stocks? / Stock-Markets / Stock Market 2017

By: ElliottWave-Forecast

EWFHendra : The tax reform is perhaps the single most important agenda for Republicans. The consequence for falling short of the tax overhaul is dire. Should Republicans fail to deliver the tax reform, they could face rout in the mid-term elections next year. This means losing control of the Senate and possibly also the House of Representatives where they have a majority now. Recently, Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin has suggested that stock market could give back much of the gain if tax reform fails. Mnuchin said during a recent interview with Politico: “There is no question that the rally in the stock market has baked into it reasonably high expectations of us getting tax cuts and tax reform done”. Given the high stake, the market seems to believe that some version of tax reform is likely to come out of Washington.

US Dollar Breaks Out / Currencies / US Dollar

By: The_Gold_Report

Technical analyst Clive Maund discusses the outlook for the dollar, euro and precious metals sector after the predicted major dollar breakout occurs. Yesterday saw one of our most important predictions become reality—the dollar broke decisively out of its Head-and-Shoulders bottom. We can clearly see this breakout on the latest 6-month chart for the U.S. dollar index shown below. Fundamental reasons for this are believed to include the current (weak) trend to higher rates in the U.S., and perhaps more importantly, the euro starting to unravel if Catalonia succeeds in its push for independence from Spain. Whatever, this chart says the dollar index is going to advance to our target in the 97 area.

British Pound Could See Declines / Currencies / British Pound

By: Richard_Cox

Market activity in the GBP/USD has shown some interesting trends over the last several quarters and now that the Bank of England has delivered on its expected rate increase it remains to be seen if these moves can still continue.  In most cases, when a central bank decides to raise their lending rates markets will experience an upward surge in the trading value of that currency.  But while we have seen some bullish activity in the British Pound, there is scope for further downside if broader financial volatility increases next week.

Do you really need an immense, distant, and rapacious central government? Maybe not. Perhaps your region or ethnic group would be better off forming its own independent country.

I know I am not the traditional author you come across on most financial sites. Most others will provide you with traditional notions of the stock market based upon rationalities. So, many authors will suggest that we “cannot separate public policy and geopolitics from the markets,” they will focus on “market valuations,” they will claim that “fundamentals do not support this rally,” and will provide you with many, many other reasons as to why they have continually believed that this rally would never happen.

Fragile Stock Market Bull in a China Shop / Stock-Markets / Stock Market 2017

By: James_Quinn

“So the modern world may be increasing in technological knowledge, but, paradoxically, it is making things a lot more unpredictable.” – Nassim Nicholas Taleb, Antifragile: Things That Gain From Disorder

“Success brings an asymmetry: you now have a lot more to lose than to gain. You are hence fragile.” – Nassim Nicholas Taleb, Antifragile: Things That Gain From Disorder

I had read Nassim Taleb’s other best-selling tomes about risk, randomness and black swans – Fooled by Randomness & The Black Swan. They were not easy reads, but they were must reads. He is clearly a brilliant thinker, but I like him more because he is a prickly skeptic who scorns and ridicules academics, politicians, and Wall Street scumbags with gusto. There were many passages which baffled me, but so many nuggets of wisdom throughout each book, you couldn’t put them down.
