The Battle of the Grated Cheese and Bitcoins

By: Lynette Lim

 

Dear Friends,


Two weeks ago I became a mother of four. I had returned a favor of a friend to look after her two children over the weekend.  The children were very close in age (4, 6, 7, 7+, respectively); and for the most part they played with each other and were quite self-contained. They did not disturb the adults very much except when they were hungry or when a fight broke out. When the latter happened, there would first be some screaming/screeching, and then the sound of footsteps closing in on me.

你能从一个五岁大的孩子和她的奇巧巧克力中学到什么

来自总裁林美娟的一封信

 

亲爱的朋友们,

 

想象一下,一个早熟的五岁小女孩贪婪的盯着自己手中的奇巧巧克力,等着一口吃掉它。一个成年的家庭的朋友走过来问小女孩是否愿意与他分享奇巧巧克力时,她快速地思考后,撅着嘴说道:如果我不得不与你分享的话,那我就没有了啊。男人说好吧。然后还没等到小女孩眨眼的功夫,一把抢过奇巧巧克力塞到自己的嘴里。

 

小女孩得到了她想要的,但事实并非真的如此。

The Chartist View: Crude Oil Futures Volume by Price

By Jeff Gilfillan

 

NYMEX WTI Crude futures front month contract has traded in a $15-16 range (low 39.19 / high 55.24) since May of 2016. The bulk of the volume/value occurred between $44 - $54 per barrel range. In September, OPEC announced extended cuts to production. Leading into this meeting the markets bought the rumor and after trading to just under $53 per barrel in late September the market squeezed weak longs and touched just above $49 and swiftly bounced. CL has not looked back since, breaking highs not seen since 2015 this month.

What Volatility Approaches Have Worked in 2017?

By Cboe

 

2017 is set to go down as the least volatile year in decades for the US equities markets.  One month realized volatility for the S&P 500 has been in the single digits, at times even low single digits, for all of this year.  VIX, which is a measure of the market’s expectations for volatility, should finish 2017 with an all-time low when looking at the average closing price in 2017.  The chart below shows the high, low, and average for VIX by year going back to 1990.
