A Funny Episode while Planning for our Wongamania Crowdfunding Campaign

Our Crowdfunding campaign kick off officially on 15th of August.

The Bull Strikes Back! Implications of recent Currency Movements, Global Trade and Household Allocation

The recent "correction" lasted a mere 2 weeks, before the Bulls rushed back into the market to fill the gap almost immediately. Although I managed to take advantage of the correction and allocated a small portion into Europe, the opportunity is lost before I can fully exploit it. However, 2 recent indicators are pointing towards a more sustained correction in the near future.

Sharp Rise in USD

The immediate, most significant indicator is the USD/SGD trend. The USD is often seen as a safe haven in times of global turmoil and there is often a strong accumulation of USD right before any major correction occur. The USD has risen strongly against SGD for the past 1 month from the lows in Aug when the global stock market hit its most exuberant state. The recent sharp spike in USD indicates a strong accumulation of USD by the Big Boys. Something is certainly brewing. Our significant portfolio position in USD money market funds benefit greatly from the recent spike.

Yeah, I am going to get a high powered, high paying job in the 2nd largest bank in Hong Kong! Or not?

One fine day, I received an invitation for a request for connection at LinkedIn.

Wow. Looks like a big shot from Hong Kong based Hang Seng wanted to make an acquaintance with me! Does she by chance is entranced by my sterling resume, superior writing skills and wanted to offer me a high position job in one of the biggest banks in Hong Kong?

Or she is memorized by my good looks and wanted to be a "friend"?
