Chart View – Crude Oil Futures

by Jeff Gilfillan

 

NYMEX WTI Crude futures front month contract has been developing value between $55 and $62 per barrel since the early November breakout from a multi-year range. In November’s Trading Asia Newsletter I mentioned the trade has the potential to trade up to $62 without needing a supply/demand disrupter. I believe the market is doing just that and has the momentum to shakeout weak intermediate term shorts with a break of the mid 2015 front month high at 62.58.

 

The Market Corner: The Month in Review "It’s cold outside!"

By Filippo Lecchini


It’s cold outside!


The last few weeks and the start of the New Year quickly reminded everyone that volatility in the markets not only comes as a consequence of human decisions, whether is the Government’s policies, trading activity or innovation, but also follows long term cycles not always as predictable as people wish they were.

New Year’s Resolutions

By: Lynette Lim

 

Dear Friends,


When I was in my 20s and a newbie at investing, a veteran of the financial industry gave me simple but sound advice when I asked about timing stock purchases.  He said “Well, I can’t advise you on a particular stock as I didn’t research it. However, if you buy any stock in December and sell in January, you will make money “.  He further explained “The markets tend to quiet down during the holidays, and in January when people go back to work, they tend to be optimistic about the future and thus the market goes up”.

 

来自总裁林美娟的一封信 芝士粉与比特币的战争

亲爱的朋友们,

 

        两周前,我变成了四个孩子的母亲。我为了回报一个朋友之前对我的帮助,我答应她在周末帮她照看她的两个孩子。这些孩子的年龄都非常的接近(岁数分别为4、6、7、7+)。大部分时间,他们相处的很好且都很安静。除非他们饿了或者他们之间产生了矛盾,否则他们并不会打扰大人太多。当后者发生时,首先便是哭喊,然后就会听见他们的脚步声渐渐的在向我靠近。


        在评判了几次矛盾后,我发现从本质上讲,产生矛盾的原因无非就两种。第一种是因为资源的稀缺,当一个孩子所拥有的比另一个孩子要多时(举个例子“他玩这个玩具的时间要比我长,现在就该轮到我玩了”)。第二种是由于意识形态,矛盾产生于当一个孩子对应该怎样做一件事有着不同的观点时。这样的例子是当他们玩桌游时,我儿子对其中另一个孩子很生气,原因是他的玩法不对。
