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

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.”

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.

SFI Community Event - The Complexity of Economics
Why is there such a gap between economic theory and the reality of our lived experience? Mainstream economics often presumes that people make rational decisions based on perfect information. These fictional decision-makers inhabit static worlds, where variables remain constant and where simple algorithms can predict the rise and fall of financial markets. Yet we all know the real world presents a much more dynamic setting. This panel will explore the possibilities for advancing our understanding of economics through the ideas and tools of complexity science. By viewing markets as complex adaptive systems, rather than a series of unrelated transactions, complexity scientists are gaining a better understanding of emergent behaviors and changing states that characterize real-world economies. How can agent-based modeling, behavioral economics, and machine learning increase our understanding of economic systems? What are the implications of these insights for economic and investment practice? Join us to explore these questions and more. This panel discussion, co-hosted by the Santa Fe Institute and Thornburg Investment Management features: Rob Axtell, who earned an interdisciplinary Ph.D. degree at Carnegie Mellon University, where he studied computing, social science, and public policy. His teaching and research involves computational and mathematical modeling of social and economic processes.

His book Income Investing: An Intelligent Approach to Profiting from Bonds, Stocks and Money Markets is a step-by-step guide to income investing. Jason holds a BA with honors in English and environmental biology from Dartmouth College, and an MBA with concentrations in analytical finance and accounting from Northwestern’s Kellogg Graduate School of Management. He is a CFA charterholder. Prior to joining Thornburg, Jason was a portfolio manager with Fortis Investments in Boston, and has held various positions at Fidelity Investments and Lehman Brothers.

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]

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.

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!

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.

Ronald Stöferle: Austrian Investing
As our great friend Dr. Bob Murphy said on an earlier show, knowledge of economics is necessary—but not sufficient—to be be a good investor. A new book entitled 'Austrian School for Investors' (https://mises.org/P11022), co-authored by our guest, Ronald Stöferle, bridges the gap between understanding the economy and understanding how to invest money, in a highly readable and succinct format. The book's co-authors are all economists and financial professionals, versed in both worlds. And, they've written a very different kind of investment book, one that doesn't tout stocks, sectors, industries, or complex timing strategies. It doesn't recommend specific equities or bonds. Instead, it's a fantastic primer on Austrian economics and its application to financial markets. By understanding money, value, interest rates, business cycles, and capital from an Austrian perspective, the smart investor knows far more about fundamentals than many fund managers and investment advisers. Most of those managers and advisers are dangerously ignorant of monetary policy, and don't understand inflation—so they're stuck trying to time booms and busts. This book won't only change the way you look at making money, but how you look at Austrian economics itself.

Episode 135 - Is Asia the world's hottest M&A market?
Anna Faelten, Deputy Director of the M&A Research Centre, reveals the findings of the latest M&A Maturity Index. As developed markets face, at best, low growth over the next few years, companies are increasingly looking to emerging markets for new business opportunities. These markets have captured a rising proportion of global mergers and acquisitions in recent years. But which countries are ripe for investment and where should dealmakers be looking next? New research from the M&A Research Centre (MARC) at Cass Business School and Ernst & Young offers an intriguing glimpse into the world's most attractive M&A markets. The M&A Maturity Index, published annually, ranks 148 countries according to their ability to attract and sustain M&A activity. In this episode of Cass Talks, Anna Faelten, Deputy Director of the M&A Research Centre, reveals the findings of the 2012 Index and explains why Asia is emerging as the new global M&A hotspot.
Mind the Gap: Emerging Markets Growth Gap Widening
With emerging markets (EM) economies expected to expand at more than double the pace of developed markets, the widening growth premium is providing an attractive backdrop for both equity and credit investors, according to Katie Koch of Goldman Sachs Asset Management. The drivers behind EM’s growth include both macro and micro factors. Not only are EM countries in stronger fiscal shape — many countries are running current account surpluses —but investors also have access to deeper and more diversified financial markets. One case in point is India, which stands to benefit from favorable demographic trends, significant reforms and an attractive equity market. Learn more: http://click.gs.com/jdyz

Europe’s attractiveness for investment Hussein Kanji is a US venture capitalist based in London and a co-founding managing partner of Hoxton Venture, an early stage investment company that invests throughout Europe.

How Do Hedge Funds Operate? Financial Markets, Compensation, Taxes, Regulations, Risks (2008)
In June 2006, prompted by a letter from Gary J. Aguirre, the Senate Judiciary Committee began an investigation into the links between hedge funds and independent analysts. 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

Weak Economy Could Benefit REITs
http://www.reit.com The sputtering U.S. economy actually could benefit the domestic REIT market, according to Steve Brown, senior portfolio manager and head of global real estate for American Century Investments. In a REIT.com video interview at REITWeek 2011: NAREIT's Investor Forum at the Waldorf=Astoria in New York, Brown discussed his outlook for U.S. REIT stocks, as well as a new fund from his company. Noting that recent data on hiring, consumer confidence and economic activity have been "modest," Brown said the generally lackluster economic climate could make REITs more attractive to the investment community. "I think if we continue to have this modest and slow economic recovery, coupled with low interest rates, I think U.S. REITs could deliver outstanding results relative to the S&P 500, because, again, we're experiencing recovering fundamentals in commercial real estate," Brown said. Brown also said his firm is projecting dividend growth this year of roughly 8 percent to 10 percent. Furthermore, if rates on 10-year Treasury bonds continue to fall, that should enhance REITs' attractiveness to investors as well. Brown also offered some information on American Century's latest investment product, an actively managed international fund, the American Century Global Real Estate Fund (ARYWX). The fund launched on May 1 and is being run out the firm's New York office, with support from American Century's London and Hong Kong offices. Brown said demand from American Century's institutional and pension fund clients drove the creation of the new global fund. "They've really accepted global real estate as part of their asset allocation or investment decisions," he said. The diversity of opportunities abroad makes a global fund appealing, according to Brown. "There are some regions of the world where we're seeing the countries hike or increase the interest rates to slow down the economic growth and to fight inflation, whereas other regions, such as the united states, are nowhere near raising interest rates because of the modest current levels of economic growth," Brown said. In particular, developing countries hold promise in the current environment, according to Brown. "Some regions, such as Brazil or China, are experiencing a lot of consumer growth," he said. "Again, you can look at some types of real estate, such as retail, that are benefiting even though it's an inflationary environment. They're benefiting from an absolute growth of consumer spending because of the population demographics in some of those regions." By Allen Kenney

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
