August 2019

General Comment After an easy July I was expecting another uneventful month in August… I couldn’t have been more wrong! This time the highlight of the month was the stock market, which decided to go on a “ride” and showed signs of strong volatility all over the board. Recession news from Europe and probably the… Read More August 2019

June 2019

General Comment It seems yesterday that we set off, wife, baby and myself for Sardinia. In reality it was the beginning of June, and I remember that uneasy feeling of starting something completely new, like going on holiday with a little baby, something that I’ve never done before in my life. I’ve done plenty of… Read More June 2019

May 2019

These are the good… Read More March 2019

February 2019

General Comment Pretty much like January, February was a rather calm month, a decent month of growth for financial markets all around the spectrum. If you follow this blog you’ll know that my view on 2019 is a neutral/negative one, and this is the main reason why I have decided to adapt my option strategy… Read More February 2019

January 2019

General Comment 2019 has kicked off with a moderate positive feeling to it, the draughts of December that we experienced in the stock market made way to a rather quick recovery, all across the board. I guess that January did not hide any special surprise for us, no dramatic news, no Brexit decisions, no China… Read More January 2019
