  1. hell yeh, lets shoot all the bankers that process the food stamps, that will help! And while we are at it, lets tie up a few footballers and burn them too, 60k a week for running round a field with a football, outrageous capitalism, right...BAN it, yes you heard me, BAN it, football is BANNED, bankers are BANNED, whose next...you with the Rolex on, you f*cking basard ****, burn the f*cker. Does this sound like a rational answer to post on a forum to you?
  2. Thanks for the link, very interesting. By all accounts it looks like the dollar carry trade is set to continue for at least another six months...certainly chimes with the views I have heard elsewhere.
  3. 6 months later the Romanians employed the same guy. This time he didn't knock. Job completed.
  4. Does anyone on this forum play games consoles? If not, then its unlikely that you know how many great games came out over the past 12 months - or not as the case may be. Cyclical industry. Buy low, sell high. Is under £1 cheap? Anyone seen the consoles due to be launched H2 2010? Mind blowing - they connect to your brain along with 3D televission - no controller, moves by the power of thought. Thats not a wind-up, I read about it. Do you think people are going to go for it?
  5. With all of this in mind, consider the latest Global Strategy Weekly from Soc Gen’s Albert Edwards, a renowned Bear with a considerable following. His view assumes the above theory on the dollar carry trade is now unwinding as interest rates are raised in the US, both to combat imported inflation and support the dollar, and takes this scenario into a hypothetical 2010. “I think the next 18 months will see major ructions in the financial markets. The consequences of a double-dip back into recession next year require some lateral thinking. If the carry trade unwind results in a turbo-charged do
  6. Once again shown up by your complete ignorance. 1) I do not work for a bank 2) I have never worked for a bank 3) The vast majority of people in the City do not work for a bank. 4) The vast majority of people who DO work for a bank had nothing to do with the credit crunch 5) The credit crunch waas caused by a tiny proportion of people within the banking trading fraternity who messed things up for everybody, albeit there were in fact doing as instructed by the government and creating instruments that woulld allow the 'poor' people with appalling credit history to buy their own homes. This w
  7. Wow those 'real' investors outside the City must really have their fingers on the pulse of the action. Its amazing in this digital world of technology we need trading floors at all. Maybe we could all sit in our homes and chat online instead, i am sure we would pick up just the same information instead of convening in London at 7am everyday This is going to come as a shock to you but some people can predict with accuracy what will happen in the stockmarket. Many tried and the majority of those who couldn't have now been fired. These amazing and mysterious people are called stockbrokers. Th
  8. Maybe you should do my job? Or do your own analysis? And quite deliberately i do not state what I am buying or selling. You want that information you have to pay for it my friend. The only person who made money from that book was the chap who wrote it, not the mug that bought it. Perhaps you should telephone Deutsche bank and tell them your theory? As they have no declared interest in the stocks they are recommending, it would be an interesting chat.
  9. Thats quite a deep thinking article to dissect, even for me. I am a bit busy so have only read it briefly - it appears the thinking is a bit confused at first glance.... The collapsing dollar is a planned exercise, the renminbi is pegged to the dollar and it suits both parties for their exports to remain competitive during these troubled times. As Minutes from the Fed stated, things are 'proceeding in an orderly fashion'. The dollar carry trade is an indirect consequence of the weak dollar, is was not part of a planned strategy by the Fed (I dont think so anyway). What money is selling do
  10. There is very little on the market - fact. Landlords are buying up property and passing on the mortgage cost plus whatever they can get away with to those who cannot afford to buy - fact. Until you address these two issues the market will remain at artificial levels. If you taxed the landlords on their rental income to the point it was no longer worth the hassle of being a landlord then the property market would find a natural balance. While the few control the many this can never occur. i would actively encourage every person renting to give details of their address to the government, che
  11. HI, I am a stockbroker, been waiting to buy a house for some time. The time is coming soon in my opinion, but we have further to fall yet. I am waiting for people to get truly desperate before screwing them into the floorboards.....i mean i think we are due a further correction
  12. If only it were quite that simple Buy note out on the banks today, Barclays breaking trend, good economic data yesterday boosting sentiment...there are sectors that remain cheap and those that have rallied on the back of a falling dollar (rather than an increase in real demand). I dare say the two will balance themselves out - i should think this year will be extremely dull to a casual observer in terms of points on the FTSE. Individual stocks will rally and fall within the FTSE sphere. China will put a spanner in the works when their economic progress is exposed for the giant government
  13. I am a stockbroker and maybe I can answer your question. The FTSE 100 is largely dominated by oil and mining shares and these are denominated in dollars. As the dollar weakens, the mining stocks and oil stocks will rise to reflect this change. The pound has little to do with it even though most stocks on the ftse do bill in £££, indeed only a few such as AZN and JMAT actually bill in dollars. RDSA bills in euros as does ISAT but this has very little to do with their performance. As the dollar has now hit a very low point, a 14 yr low against the Yen for example, it has been used instead of
