here's a short extract:
So for many of us, defining ourselves as #ecosocialists is a way of distinguishing our socialism from such environmental blindness.

Even more important, by calling ourselves ecosocialists we are saying that we don’t view the #environment as just one of many equally important concerns, just another stick t

Yes, I am a bit of financial data nerd

Morgan Housel said it best when he compared investing to being an airline pilot:

Ninety percent of the job is uneventful to the point of automation; ten percent of the job is terrifying and requires complex skills and a flawlessly calm demeanor.

euro zone in recession - Draghi special loans for banks bot not for the real economy

‘special loans for banks, which is why one could also speak of the “president of the bank rescuers”.

Because a “new (third) series of long-term loans for the commercial banks of the Euro-Zone” will be offered as a TLTRO III (Targeted Longer-Term Refinancing Operations) designate, writes the Neue Zürcher Zeitung (NZZ): “Between September 2019 and March 2021, the ECB wants to offer the banks on a quarterly basis, such refinancing operations.” (src: auto translated from heise...

Market Recap

Last week I posted my Death Cross &a Testarticle and a few weeks before that my article on How Passive InvestingSaved my Life. It turns out some of my readers found it useful so I decided to post a market recap from last week. I’m not sure how long I’ll keep these up but it’s fun to write about for the time being.

I don’t keep up on ALL the market gyrations but I’m aware that earnings season is coming and several companies are already ‘warning’ of possible misses. While some of that’s due to the Trump administration... Show more...

Death Cross & a Test

Although I do passive investing 95% of the time, I do keep an eye on the general market gyrations if there’s something notable happening. For example, the recent market sell offs. Of course my 401k looks like 351K now, but this is to be expected considered the lunacy we’re seeing in Federal Government right now.

The markets have been selling off like crazy lately and everyone is trying to come up with a reason. Is it the Trump tariffs? Bond yields inverting? Apple earnings? Usually it’s a combination of all of the above. The market is trying to desperately price in all known things and even account for unknown knowns.
