2 days ago by Fallible @ Fallible YouTube Channel

Get rid of your FOMO with our free guide: This episode of Real Vision’s The One Thing with AK Fallible is all about the Federal Reserve and how they control the economy. To understand why investors pay so much attention to the Fed, we need to go back to 2008, when Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke saved the world economy! Well, some people may disagree… but back then during the crisis, liquidity was drying up and the economy was grinding to a halt. So the Fed and the treasury had to do some pretty drastic, unconventional things to fix it. First the Fed took interest rates to zero. Then they started taking bad bonds off bank balance sheets and putting them onto their own. And after that that they eventually hit the markets with Quantitative Easing. Now QE, as everyone calls it, is where the Fed actually bought treasuries, which suppressed interest rates and flooded the market with cheap, free money. And that’s why they called Bernanke “Helicopter Ben”, because it ...

The Future of IPO’s
2 days ago by Howard Lindzon @ Howard Lindzon

Before I get into it…this made me laugh: Onwards… I might as well chime in with my 4 cents on IPO’s. In 2017 it was all about the ICO’s which was probably the cycle low for IPO’s. As we now know, the ICO was a mostly awful distraction. I participated in just one ICO – Civic (a portfolio company of Social Leverage) – which saw incredible gains and now has fallen below the pre-sale price of 10 cents.

Russell 2000 breaks support; other indices to follow?
2 days ago by Declan Fallon @ Fallond Picks

A tough close for markets on Friday.  The week finished with a decisive break of support for the Russell 2000 which undercut the prior double bottom - this sets of a bad precedent for other indices. There is still a chance for a 'bear trap' but markets will need to recover 1,465 over the next few days - Monday preferably. To add insult to injury, technicals are all net negative and relative performance accelerated lower.The Dow gave up over 2% but didn't break support. I would be looking...
