Bears set to pull NYSE down - and HK with it

THE US bull stock market is about finished, and will probably peak by the end of August or the first week in September. Soon after, the market will crash and burn - taking the Hong Kong stock market with it as it did in 1987.

If it doesn't happen in late August or early September, then in my opinion it will happen before the end of October.

HK's stock investors being short-changed

THE Hong Kong media recently reported six persons had been convicted for short selling stocks. I accept the law is the law and every law must be obeyed, whether it is based on sound principle or frivolous bureaucracy.

Dollar shrinks in value as inflation takes hold

ALL over the world, people are worried about the deteriorating economy.

The G-7 countries and the US are intentionally creating inflation by monetising debt. This means that all major countries are creating money out of thin air. This is a simple, subtle way to cause inflation, which as Lord Keynes said, not one person in a million would even understand was happening.
