US dollar losing investment attractiveness  (28.12.2017)
Traders are returning to the market after the holidays and hurry to sell the US dollar. Today the trading session started with the news about the growth of consumer activity in Japan. Retail sales rose by 1.9 percent in November after falling by 0.1 percent in the previous month. Analysts were less optimistic and had forecast an increase only by 0.7 percent. The annual indicator also showed positive dynamics. Retail sales increased by 2.2 percent year-over-year in November. The corresponding index also surpassed the forecast. The market expected a 1.1 percent rise. However, statistics often have the opposite effect on the Japanese currency. Upbeat data contributes to the growth of stock indexes but not the yen. Still, today the currency is also in demand. The US dollar/yen pair dropped by 60 pips down to 112.70. Today the yen was supported by the weak US dollar. The US dollar index fell to a three-month low. Investors are returning from the Christmas holidays and tend to transfer their funds from the US assets. The tax reform bill is adopted, the Fed's funds rate is raised, so, now there are no other reasons for holding the funds. Against this backdrop, the euro/dollar pair returned to the highs of the previous month. The currency pair reached 1.1940. According to the technical analysis, breaking through the resistance level of 1.1950 will help the euro to develop rally to the psychological level of 1.2000. The trading week before the New Year is likely to close with the same trading sentiments. https://www.instaforex.com FX Analytics - https://www.instaforex.com/forex_analytics Forex Calendar - https://www.instaforex.com/forex_calendar Forex TV from InstaForex - https://www.instaforex.com/instaforex_tv Forex charts - https://www.instaforex.com/charts Instant account opening - https://www.instaforex.com/fast_open_live_account Forex Trading Contests - https://www.instaforex.com/forex_contests List of official InstaForex blogs: https://www.facebook.com/instaforex https://www.instagram.com/instaforex/ https://twitter.com/InstaForex https://telegram.me/instaforex

What is COUNTRY ATTRACTIVENESS? What does COUNTRY ATTRACTIVENESS mean? COUNTRY ATTRACTIVENESS meaning - COUNTRY ATTRACTIVENESS definition - COUNTRY ATTRACTIVENESS explanation.

SUBSCRIBE to our Google Earth flights channel - https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC6UuCPh7GrXznZi0Hz2YQnQ Country attractiveness is a multidisciplinary concept at the crossroads of development economics, financial economics, comparative law and political science: it aims at tracking and contrasting the relative appeal of different territories and jurisdictions competing for “scarce” investment inflows, by scoring them quantitatively and qualitatively across ad hoc series of variables such as GDP growth, tax rates, capital repatriation … etc. There are multiple factors determining host country attractiveness in the eyes of large foreign direct institutional investors, notably pension funds and sovereign wealth funds. Research conducted by the World Pensions Council (WPC) suggests that perceived legal/political stability over time and medium-term economic growth dynamics constitute the two main determinants Some development economists believe that a sizeable part of Western Europe has now fallen behind the most dynamic amongst Asia’s emerging markets, notably because the latter adopted policies more propitious to long-term investments: “Successful countries such as Singapore, Indonesia and South Korea still remember the harsh adjustment mechanisms imposed abruptly upon them by the IMF and World Bank during the 1997-1998 ‘Asian Crisis’ What they have achieved in the past 10 years is all the more remarkable: they have quietly abandoned the “Washington consensus” by investing massively in infrastructure projects this pragmatic approach proved to be very successful.”

Russian Market Attractiveness - Exporting to Russia - Russian Market Entry
Contact Stan : http://www.grafski.com/contacts In this Hangout session, Brian Savic of Tellamate, Australia and Stanislav Grafski of Grafski Consulting, Russia discuss the factors that make today's Russian market attractive to new market entrants and international investors. Stan Grafski expands on the following factors that build rationale for market entry strategies to many international companies landed in Russia to-date. Namely: 1. Russia is the largest and fastest growing market in Europe With 145 million people of population (including Crimea), some 20 million of legal immigrants, and 10 million+ of illegal ones [from ex-USSR countries] Russia represents over 170 million of consumers in place. 2. It is one of 3 most profitable markets in the world. 3. It has many unsaturated sectors and unfilled niches for new market entrants to expand to. 4. It offers political stability. 5. Russian Government supports the companies operating in Special Economic Zones (latest example is Crimea), and territories of priority development such as Russian Far East and Eastern Siberia where new businesses can expect certain tax holidays. Some agricultural production is government subsidised. This year, the government is to enforce a 2-year tax holiday regime for Small and Medium Enterprises (SME) in manufacturing, services, and research. 6. Russia is the 3d country in the world, following the US and China, by Foreign Direct Investments (FDI). So many investors cannot be wrong!

High Yield Attractive But Beware Metals & Mining Bonds
The lower possibility of a recession in the U.S. is making high yield bonds attractive again, but that does not mean every sector is out of the woods, said Ray Kennedy, portfolio manager for the Hotchkis & Wiley High Yield Fund (HWHAX). 'We definitely are approaching a valuation point that will have a sustainable attractiveness for investors,' said Kennedy. The Hotchkis & Wiley High Yield Fund is down 2.6% thus far in 2016, according to fund-tracker Morningstar. The $2.1 billion fund, which sports a trailing 12 month yield of 6.8%, has returned an average of 3.3% annually over the past five years, outpacing 52% of its peers in Morningstar’s high yield bond fund category. Kennedy said the high yield market has weathered through the worst of the pain inflicted by the energy sector and may see a recovery later this year.

5 Factors You Didn't Know That Truly Influence "Gold Prices" | Investing 101 ANIMATION
Since the ancient time, people have shown an obsession to gold. Except for an obvious correction in 2008, gold price has appreciated consistently since 1999, reaching its peak in 2011. After being unpegged with the US dollar, gold price is mainly affected by the demand and supply factor. Therefore, it is important to understand the different factors which can affect gold price before we invest in it. As an investor, Jack wants to diversify his portfolio’s risk, so he decided to include gold in his portfolio in order to hedge market risk and inflation. He frequently hears from the news that Indian festivals and the ETF transactions will affect gold price. So whenever there is related news, Jack will pay more attention and seek for an opportunity to enter the market. However, Jack noticed that his strategy is resulting into loss mainly because there are other factors to be considered when investing in gold. First of all, Indian festivals actually have minimal effect on gold price. Traditionally, many people think that Indian festivals have a strong demand for gold. But in reality, the demand is really limited and it does not cause much effect on gold price Furthermore, the global inventory level of gold in ETF is less than 0.5%. Therefore, any fluctuation on the ETF transactions would only lead to a minimal effect on gold price. In fact, there are five more important factors as listed below: 1) US dollar Since gold is priced in USD when USD appreciates, gold price will drop correspondingly. Assuming Jack wants to invest in gold. Initially, 100 USD can only buy 100 Oz of gold. Due to expectation of USD appreciation we can buy 120 Oz of gold with the same price tomorrow. As a result, the attractiveness of gold will decline today. 2) Inflation When inflation take place, the corresponding currency will depreciate, metal and commodities will then become relatively more valuable. Traditionally, gold seldom depreciate in terms of real value, so it has been used as a tool to hedge inflation risk 3) War, Natural Disasters When there are wars or natural disasters, people will sell their asset including local currency and subsequently buy safe-haven assets. With funds flowing to safe-haven assets, gold price will conversely appreciate. 4) Economics When a country enters recession, people will lose confidence in their local currency. Funds will naturally look for risk-averse assets, therefore bringing gold price up. 5) Domestic interest rate Take USD for example, when the US government raises interest rate, we can earn interest when we invest in USD. On the other hand, gold as a commodity will not generate any interest. As a result, the attractiveness of gold drops when interest rate rises. Let’s say Jack is deciding to invest in USD or gold, if US dollar provides 1% of interest payment per annum but no interest gain in gold. He will naturally invest in USD. Therefore, it is important to understand the different factors which can affect gold price before we invest in it. =============================== YouTube: https://youtube.com/channel/UCc33m48vLcYXxgfnwtytK-g Facebook: https://facebook.com/161384107682138

In EIU’s report titled “China Going Global Investment Index 2017,” the Philippines ranked 29th this year in terms of attractiveness to Chinese firms. Manila’s spot this year was better than 2015 and 2013’s 39th place. The index ranks 60 major economies in terms of their appeal to Chinese investors, drawing on 57 indicators spread across “opportunity” and “risk” pillars.  The Philippines remains a magnet for Chinese investors in the energy, telecommunications, consumer goods sectors, EIU reported. In terms of financial services, EIU said the Philippines ranked “relatively well,” supported by “reasonable low financial risks and decent returns on assets.” Business Article MRec , pagematch 1, sectionmatch 1 Meanwhile, Singapore has overtaken the US as the most attractive destination for Chinese overseas direct investment ODI, citing the city state’s “superior business environment, access to Southeast Asian markets and close links with China.” The fall in the US ranking is “partly” attributable to higher trade tensions with China, EIU said. Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte last May visited Beijing for the second time to attend a summit hosted by his Chinese counterpart to promote the Chinasponsored “One Belt, One Road” initiative. Duterte has sought warmer ties with Beijing by avoiding confrontation with the Asian power and by setting aside Manila’s legally won entitlements over the disputed South China Sea, in exchange for billion dollars’ worth of Chinese aid and investment.

Africa's attractiveness survey 2015
In a recent interview Concrete.TV spoke to Michael Lalor, Lead director Ernst and Young Africa Business Centre, about the 2015 Africa attractiveness survey. It includes surveying over 500 business leaders and investors from 30 countries to determine the perceived attractiveness of Africa as an investment opportunity. The attractiveness survey are intended to help businesses make informed investment decisions and governments to improve their respective business environment while relieving barriers that may intercept future growth. Ernst and Young believes that Africa has the potential to bring about a future that would have been unheard of a few years ago. To fulfil this potential, African leaders have to drive the structural transformation necessary to achieve the goals of inclusive and sustainable growth. In this survey Ernst and Young highlights the priorities for action which is believed to be the most crucial to a successful African future. Lalor states that “the biggest shift this year has been the emergence of the real estate, hospitality and construction sector as a significant attractor of investment contributing to over 40 percent of capital invested last year into that sector”. A few trends which appeared in Africa is the urbanisation of key cities, the extreme demand for retail space and the demand for low cost housing in certain countries such as Angola and Egypt. ======================================= www.Concrete.TV - Camera and edit: Nawaal Deane Text: Justin Marthinus Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Concretetv/109681892488758?ref=hl Twitter: @_concretetv www.Concrete.TV – a dynamic blend of broadcast style television and WebTV, covering: news, projects, products, people, countries and events for the concrete and construction industry. ======================================= [Africa's attractiveness survey 2015] [https://youtu.be/vusgY-nRxwY]

Was der Einzelhandelsmarkt über die Politik aussagt
Die europäischen Einzelhandelsmärkte präsentieren sich zum Jahresstart mehrheitlich in guter Verfassung – so der Global Retail Attractiveness Index (GRAI) von Union Investment. Aktueller Top-Performer belegt mit 121 Punkten erstmals die Spitzenposition im EU-12-Index: Und das ist Portugal. Da klingelts, denn Portugal hatte doch auch mit einer schwere Finanz- und Wirtschaftskrise zu kämpfen, ebenso wie Griechenland. Aber Griechenland wurde durch die „Rettungspolitik“ der EU kaputt gerettet oder gespart. Das gleiche Schicksal drohte auch Portugal. Nach einem harten Sparkurs mit ähnlichen Entwicklungen wie in Griechenland hat man im Sommer 2016 das sogenannte Zweite Rettungsprogramm der EU nicht mehr angenommen. Es wurde genau das Gegenteil von dem gemacht, was die EU empfohlen hat. Gekürzten Löhne und Renten wurden wieder erhöht, die Sondersteuern wurden abgeschafft und diverse Steuererhöhungen zurückgenommen. Die Arbeitslosigkeit liegt bei 6,7 Prozent, das Haushaltsdefizit des Staates wurde auf 2 Prozent gesenkt – die Portugiesen wandern nicht mehr aus. Man hat ein humanitäres und soziales Erfolgsmodell geschaffen. Binnennachfrage, Investitionen und Konsum wurden erheblich gestärkt, die Portugiesen konsumieren wieder, was sich auf den Einzelhandelsmarkt auswirkt. Und die Frage ist: Warum hat man das in Griechenland nicht auch so gemacht. Die Antwort: Da hätten die falschen daran verdient. https://www.immobilien-redkation.at https://www.facebook.com/ImmoRedaktion https://twitter.com/ImmoRedaktion https://www.linkedin.com/company/die-unabhaengige-immobilien-redaktion/ Sprecher: [email protected] Aufnahme: [email protected] Schnitt: [email protected]

Aguirre was fired from his job with the SEC when, as lead investigator of insider trading allegations against Pequot Capital Management, he tried to interview John Mack, then being considered for chief executive officer at Morgan Stanley.[197] The Judiciary Committee and the US Senate Finance Committee issued a scathing report in 2007, which found that Aguirre had been illegally fired in reprisal[198] for his pursuit of Mack and in 2009, the SEC was forced to re-open its case against Pequot. Pequot settled with the SEC for US$28 million and Arthur J. Samberg, chief investment officer of Pequot, was barred from working as an investment advisor.[199] Pequot closed its doors under the pressure of investigations.[200] The systemic practice of hedge funds submitting periodic electronic questionnaires to stock analysts as a part of market research was reported in by The New York Times in July 2012. According to the report, one motivation for the questionnaires was to obtain subjective information not available to the public and possible early notice of trading recommendations that could produce short term market movements. According to modern portfolio theory, rational investors will seek to hold portfolios that are mean/variance efficient (that is, portfolios offer the highest level of return per unit of risk, and the lowest level of risk per unit of return). One of the attractive features of hedge funds (in particular market neutral and similar funds) is that they sometimes have a modest correlation with traditional assets such as equities. This means that hedge funds have a potentially quite valuable role in investment portfolios as diversifiers, reducing overall portfolio risk.[69] However, there are three reasons why one might not wish to allocate a high proportion of assets into hedge funds. These reasons are: Hedge funds are highly individual and it is hard to estimate the likely returns or risks; Hedge funds' low correlation with other assets tends to dissipate during stressful market events, making them much less useful for diversification than they may appear; and Hedge fund returns are reduced considerably by the high fee structures that are typically charged. Several studies have suggested that hedge funds are sufficiently diversifying to merit inclusion in investor portfolios, but this is disputed for example by Mark Kritzman[202][203] who performed a mean-variance optimization calculation on an opportunity set that consisted of a stock index fund, a bond index fund, and ten hypothetical hedge funds. The optimizer found that a mean-variance efficient portfolio did not contain any allocation to hedge funds, largely because of the impact of performance fees. To demonstrate this, Kritzman repeated the optimization using an assumption that the hedge funds incurred no performance fees. The result from this second optimization was an allocation of 74% to hedge funds. The other factor reducing the attractiveness of hedge funds in a diversified portfolio is that they tend to under-perform during equity bear markets, just when an investor needs part of their portfolio to add value.[69] For example, in January--September 2008, the Credit Suisse/Tremont Hedge Fund Index[204] was down 9.87%. According to the same index series, even "dedicated short bias" funds had a return of −6.08% during September 2008. In other words, even though low average correlations may appear to make hedge funds attractive this may not work in turbulent period, for example around the collapse of Lehman Brothers in September 2008. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hedge_funds

Kenya is one of the African countries that attract the highest number of investors
Kenya continues to rank highly in its attractiveness to investors, as it remains one of the more strategic investment destinations. The Africa integration index released by global payments company, visa suggests that Kenya is most attractive due to its expansive dual air connectivity with the world, as well other to African countries. The index places South Africa as the most integrated country on the continent, with a rating of 66.7, followed by Kenya with a rating of 55. The rating is based on flow of goods and services, financial integration and movement of capital, flow of information and knowledge, and movement of people. According to visa executives, Kenya’s global integration is far greater than that of regional integration but are quick to point out that the breadth of the country’s economic relationships with its neighbors is far stronger than its breadth with the rest of the world. The government has been on a quest to establish Nairobi as a global financial services hub in a bid to attract increased foreign direct investment.

India Become Most Profitable Place For Investment !!!
India becomes the most profitable investment destination, tops the survey of 110 countries, pushing behind US, China and Japan. A ranking of destinations for attractiveness to foreign investors has placed India at the top among 110 countries. China has secured the 65th position and the U.S. is at the 50th. In the 2014 index, India was at the sixth position and Hong Kong was number one. The ranking is based on an index for baseline profitability (BPI) that assumes that three factors affect the ultimate success of a foreign investment i.e. how much the value of an asset grows, the preservation of that value while the asset is owned and the ease of repatriation of proceeds from selling the asset. The index combines measures for each of these factors into a summary statistic that conveys a country’s basic attractiveness for investment.

Traders opt for US assets  (07.12.2017)
Since the beginning of this trading week, gold is gradually declining. At the Asian session today, gold fell below $1,260. Gold is trading at $1,257.70 per troy ounce. Last time the price sank to this level 4 months ago. The gradual decline means that market participants are optimistic about the investment attractiveness of the US assets. Traders are also encouraged by the progress in the adoption of the US tax reform. As a result, the US dollar index shows an upward trend. Now the greenback is trading around 93.65. Experts note that the US treasury yield is also growing ahead of the Fed meeting. Investors are sure that the Federal Reserve will raise the funds rate this month. However, some representatives of the Fed believe that it is too soon for a rate hike as inflation in the US is still below the target level. Meanwhile, many traders who have already given in to the bullish mood will not be able to stop buying the US currency soon. For example, the greenback/yen pair is likely to reach 113.00. Market participants are turning away from safe assets. However, now it is necessary to take into account risks of growing geopolitical tensions amid the statement of US President Donald Trump about the recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. This announcement can jeopardize the peaceful settlement in the Middle East. Now experts see the US dollar rally as a short-term trend. https://www.instaforex.com FX Analytics - https://www.instaforex.com/forex_analytics Forex Calendar - https://www.instaforex.com/forex_calendar Forex TV from InstaForex - https://www.instaforex.com/instaforex_tv Forex charts - https://www.instaforex.com/charts Instant account opening - https://www.instaforex.com/fast_open_live_account Forex Trading Contests - https://www.instaforex.com/forex_contests List of official InstaForex blogs: https://www.facebook.com/instaforex https://www.instagram.com/instaforex/ https://twitter.com/InstaForex https://telegram.me/instaforex

JIM ROGERS - Invest in Myanmar & North Korea in 2013 and beyond.
James Beeland Rogers, Jr. (born October 19, 1942) is an American investor and author. He is currently based in Singapore. Rogers is the Chairman of Rogers Holdings and Beeland Interests, Inc. He was the co-founder of the Quantum Fund with George Soros and creator of the Rogers International Commodities Index (RICI). In December 2007, Rogers sold his mansion in New York City for about 16 million USD and moved to Singapore. Rogers claimed that he moved because now is a ground-breaking time for investment potential in Asian markets. Rogers's first daughter is now being tutored in Mandarin to prepare her for the future. He is quoted as saying: "If you were smart in 1807 you moved to London, if you were smart in 1907 you moved to New York City, and if you are smart in 2007 you move to Asia." In a CNBC interview with Maria Bartiromo broadcast on May 5, 2008, Rogers said that people in China are extremely motivated and driven, and he wants to be in that type of environment, so his daughters are motivated and driven. He also stated that this is how America and Europe used to be. He chose not to move to Chinese cities like Hong Kong or Shanghai due to the high levels of pollution causing potential health problems for his family; hence, he chose Singapore. He has also advocated investing in certain smaller Asian frontier markets such as Sri Lanka and Cambodia, and currently serves as an Advisor to Leopard Capital's Leopard Sri Lanka Fund.[8] However, he is not fully bullish on all Asian nations, as he remains skeptical of India's future - "India as we know it will not survive another 30 or 40 years".[9] In 2008 Rogers endorsed Ron Paul for President of the United States. 2013 2014 myanmar burma "wall street" passion world "north korea" invest investment change "south east asia" asia east west "jim rogers" investing stamps gold silver coins "stock market" open depressed depression natural "cheap labour" tourism china chinese war communism passport citizen japan japanese population potential fortune money "black market" business control currency economy commodity premium "gold bullion" "gold coin" interview india indian russia bearish bear bull future 829speedy In September 2012 Rogers was appointed by VTB Capital as an advisor to the agricultural division of its global private equity unit. Rogers noted: "Russia and the CIS region have all the ingredients needed to become the world's agriculture powerhouse. It seems that everything may now be coming together under VTB Capital to make this happen, so I am keen to participate."[12] Investment views In 2002, Rogers said that Fed Chairman Alan Greenspan's "reaction to the stock-market bubble has caused two more bubbles to grow: a real-estate bubble and a consumer-debt bubble."[13] In 2006, Rogers said he was shorting US financials, home builders and Fannie Mae.[14][15]3 In May 2012 he remarked during an interview with Forbes Magazine that "there's going to be a huge shift in American society, American culture, in the places where one is going to get rich. The stock brokers are going to be driving taxis. The smart ones will learn to drive tractors so they can work for the smart farmers. The farmers are going to be driving Lamborghinis. I'm telling you. You should start Forbes Farming. There's no stock market. No internet. No e-mail. And despite a wealth of natural resources, from rice to gold to hydrocarbons, it's one of the poorest countries in the world. Still, I think there's a great a way to invest in the future of Myanmar: Go there. Nestled in Southeast Asia along the Bay of Bengal, Myanmar is undoubtedly the most isolated and insular nation we have visited. Crossing the border from India was like stepping back in time: Roads that had been filled with cars in India were suddenly packed only with bicycles and ox-carts. Local craftsman we met in villages measured time by watching water drip into a coconut shell. Outside of the major cities, one is hard pressed to find regular electricity. It's a lush and beautiful land: mountains in the west, north and east border a fertile river valley. Rudyard Kipling's famed "Road to Mandalay" is actually not a road but a river-the Irrawaddy-and it is still the country's primary commercial route leading down the center of the country to the Bay of Bengal

Why it is lucrative to invest in Dubai property?
Why it is lucrative to invest in Dubai property? Based on materials http://www.thefirstgroup.com One of the reasons why investing in Dubai property is increasingly popular is not only the quality of real estate itself, but also numerous opportunities and benefits provided by the emirate on the whole and confirmed by international authorities. INSEAD Alumni survey of last November ranked Dubai the most attractive place to live in terms of professional and private life considering economic dynamism, cost of living and overall attractiveness. In addition, Dubai is considered to be the top city in the Middle East and Africa region for quality of living, according to a 2015 Quality of Living report released by human resources consultancy Mercer that considers a city’s political and social environment. Moreover, the wider UAE was ranked third on the inaugural 2015 Islamic Growth Markets Investments Index, which ranks countries’ investment potential relative to other countries within the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC). What is more, Dubai ranks among the Top 10 “important cities” for ultra-high-net-worth individuals (UHNI) as Knight Frank names Dubai the eighth popular city for investors having more than $30 million (Dh110 million) worth of assets.
