Its good of the FT to highlight some of the issues of the day ..... we can check that we're at least vaguely "au fait" with some of the things that matter to markets. Of course definitive answers to their own questions are not on offer but certain possible outcomes are...

On the move today so was going to pass on the blog entirely but in the event we felt that we just had to make sure that you'd clocked what's going on with Bitcoin, especially as we had made a rare foray into cryptocurrency territory last week. 

Just briefly, Bitcoin tra...

With almost another week to go in November, you might think that it's a bit premature for institutions to start broadcasting their predictions for 2018. Nevertheless, it's starting ..... an obligatory annual ritual and a pretty unwelcome one for many of the experts it...

November 23, 2017

It's probably a generational thing ..... in fact, it's definitely a generational thing. For those still struggling to get their head fully around the principle of cryptocurrencies, investment (if you could call it that) in that area is obviously a no-no. "More fool you...

Mr Tabrum's pithy message may be over two years old, but it retains all its self-mocking wisdom and has seldom been more appropriate. If it smacks a little of bitter self-recrimination at missed opportunities, well ..... we can surely forgive him that. Who amongst us h...
