Traditionally, the only sources from which a new investor could get a broker were through broker rating guides and customer feedback surveys. This simple means are getting far outdated, especially in this information age, and better approaches need to be adopted. But the guiding principle to be upheld all through the process of choosing a broker should be to identify that particular broker who is optimally and specifically suited to your investment needs. A perfect broker will always be available to answer your calls, spend some minutes explaining the new complex stuff, charge moderate commissions, and then look out for you when something worth considering is coming up, or when hell is just about to break loose. Additionally, you need a guy who knows the game, who has the training and the experience, and fully certified by all relevant bodies. You will be wise to insist on this,...

How the Wall Street Government Rules

Larry H. Summers, one of Obama’s top economic advisers among other White House staff, recently released a personal financial disclosure form. The Obama White House is making thousands of millions dollars from Wall Street for themselves. Simmers earned US$5.2 million as compensation from D.E. Shaw in 2008, US$2.7 million as speaking fees for several Wall Street firms, US$45,000 for an appearance in meetings, US$135,000 to visit Goldman Sachs for a day, and many such entries in the disclosure form accumulate to stupendous figures for a single year. When Obama’s White House is called a Wall Street government, there are reasons. Most of these payments made were made to Summers in around April last year when either Obama or Clinton were expected to be in the White House this year. If any of the two would win the election, it was expected that Larry H. Summers would be in the very same...

Monetary Policy in China

When China’s monetary policy is analyzed, one thing stands out presently – there is a continued incline in importation of products into China at a rate higher than the exports growth. Secondly, after the peg of the Chinese Yuan to the dollar, the Chinese currency’s real trade-weighted value declined. This is notable mostly since the beginning months of 2002, at a time when the US dollar reached its peak value. China is a great economy in the making. At this point in time, the metrics of China’s currency are largely undervalued and others unlisted. China’s Current Account has been growing at a steep surplus since 2007. For instance, the current account ran at US$17 billion last budget year as compared to US$4.6 billion in 2001. That is giant leap in just six years. This ensues in a 1.5 percent growth in Gross Domestic Product, an outstanding feat for such a massive economy. To...

Emerging Facts on the Latin finance world

Some time in September 2008, Brazil’s president, Luiz Ignácio Lula da Silva was asked by journalists what he thought about the global economic crises we are going through. He replied by saying, “When people ask me about an economic crisis in the world, I tell them, go ask George Bush. After all, it is his crisis and not mine.” Such has been more or less the attitude of the Latin finance world to contemporary issues and developments. Whether described as indifference or whatever else, Latin finance has had a hands-off policy of administrating growth and development for a long time now. It is easy to understand why this delusion has been perpetrated in the region about the non-volatile status of their financial institutions. Policymakers and key economists on the world stage have been full of praise for Latin America’s increasing financial independence and industrial maturity. Of repute...
