The design of investment strategies is based on a number of premises. The first one is that the future will have some resemblance to the past. The second one is that the future will never be (exactly) the same as the past. And the third one is that the future will introduce some unforeseeable events. […] ...

There is a lot of speculation about what happened in the stock markets last Monday evening. This Monday had been a rough day during regular trading hours, but not something unusual. Major indices posted solid losses and volatility had gone up considerably, but nothing different from what we had seen many times before in history. […] ...

These Dutch Guys were in Tokyo almost ten years ago, when the subprime crisis broke out at the moment Lehman Brothers defaulted. They were hardly aware of this event: only the huge headlines on a newspaper that was stuck between the doorknob and the doorframe of another hotel room made them stop in their tracks […] ...

To say stock markets in the US (and around the globe) had a bad day yesterday, is an understatement. Many major indices recorded the worst trading day in more than three years.

For almost as long as These Dutch Guys are reporting on the comings and goings of the stock market, the word fear has been virtually absent in the vocabulary of investors. No terrorism, hurricanes, Russian meddling, theatrical threats of all out nuclear war, ever-expanding controversies surrounding the White House, or any other form of bad […] ...

Next Monday, Jerome Powell will be appointed as the new Chair of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System. For most people, both investors and ‘ordinary’ citizens, the economic circumstances appear to be very positive at the moment. The American economy is booming, unemployment rates are declining and stock prices are at a […] ...

Yesterday was the last meeting of the Federal Reserve under the direction of Janet Yellen. The Fed did not change interest rates, but expressed the expectation that inflation will reach the much-hoped-for level of 2% later this year. And that would justify a number of rate hikes (probably three) in the course of 2018. Investors […] ...

“It’s been two years since we started this wonderful journey. We have gone forward with a vision and a righteous mission. To make investing great again, for all people in the world. And let’s start by recognizing that the results of our investment models look strong. All of them were able to record a positive […] ...

With the current valuations, not much is needed to put doubt (and caution) into the heads of investors. One day they think: these stock prices are fully justified, look at the economy, look at the fiscal climate, look at the low levels of interest rates. And the other day, like yesterday, they start feeling insecure: […] ...

Give the bull its daily portion of positive sentiment and it will keep on running. Positive sentiment in the stock markets comes from optimism. Optimism comes from expectations. Expectations come from what we believe, or are made to believe. (Okay, we may cut some corners here, but we have to boil it down just a […] ...
