Jim O’Neill Seminar -¥ / Japan / Aussie $ / Brazil Real

Well by sheer charm and standing in Tokyo I was able to get a seat to see a true master of the universe Goldman Sachs Asset Management Chairman Jim O’Neill.

•The Bank of Japan can achieve 2% percent inflation within two years and then may need to concern itself with containing prices if it succeeds .
If they are committed he said then they can ,Haruhiko Kuroda has pledged to do “whatever it takes” to beat deflation and plans to double the monetary base!

Goldman Sachslast week increased the outlook on Japanese Equites , my view has always been whatever Goldman does the market follows .
Outlooks for 2013
•Topix – 1,350
•Nikkei 225-16,000

By 2015 they see
•Topix – 1,600
•Nikkei 225-19,000

YEN- ¥
• He believes the consequences of “Abenomics” would be a $/Yen 105-110, but Y120 could happen faster with the US change not being quite so necessary.

Australia

•it’s overvalued !

“A currency I find the most interesting is the Australian $” O’Neill, &“The Australian dollar is significantly overvalued.”

Reason for this is foreign purchase of government debt .

Brazil Real
• The weak economy means there is no appreciation likely .

•Last week the central bank increased interest rate to control inflation.

Manchester United

Always the die hard fan , he’s looking forward for Manchester United winning their 20th title .

What a guy , what a company .

I am so glad that deVere Group is working with Goldman Sachs , it’s going to be amazing

Tokyo to get 24/7 transport- party about to come back ?

Many people have been forced into an all-night cyber cafe , mc Donald’s of just hanging around the nightclubs after missing the last train home , this is not fun . Why ? As at midnight the train stops and busses and then your stuck were you are unless you want spend a fortune on taxi .

Tokyo Governor Naoki Inose has been working on plans to introduce 24-hour buses and late-night subway services in Tokyo , first on the agenda is a with an all-night bus route between Roppongi and Shibuya.
Tokyo’s trains and subways only operate 24 hour do this once a year, on New Year’s Eve, and Governor Inose admitted that it would be difficult to create the Big Apple’s level of service since subways in Tokyo don’t have multiple tracks.
To the the city that is the best in public services I am surprised this hasn’t been done before , could this be another Abenomics policy of getting the city working 24/7 ?

What i hear the bus route will start between the party capitals of Roppongi and Shibuya,

Taxi drivers will not be happy but customers will be !

Is this in preparation for Japan booming and the party coming back here in force?

The Lady that made Britain Great again –

Whether you agreed with her politics or not, everyone has to admit she was a true patriot with defined ethos and ideology .

She loved her country and had an ideology that she would quiver from , this I respect so much , not like todays politicians changing policy to keep the public happy .

Her Ideology not just changed the face of Great Britain but also the world .

Below is a link to a article by the Mayor of London that I think is very good .

She saved the UK from being strangled by the power of the union , stood up to Argentina and wouldn’t be bullied by the EU . The quote that I will always associate with her is :

“defeat i dont recognise the meaning of the word -Thatcher

As a child of the Thatcher era I thank you as without you I personally would not be in the industry I am in today .

Thank you and god bless

Gold Bubble goes Bust !

On April 3 rd I wrote a blog Tony Evans Blog -Gold Bubble – about to Burst ? I spoke about how I can see the gold price continuing to fall and well it did yesterday ! not all that shines is gold or that all that is gold is investment .

Why ?

Everyone think that the precedent on Cyprus having to sell Gold to pay off the debt .

Diversification is needed , all assets have a place in a portfolio if it reviewed .

I quoted the below from our CEO Nigel Green ,

Nigel Green Blog -The lessons we should take from the gold crash
The freefall of gold prices in recent days underscores the need for investors to hold a well-diversified and regularly reviewed portfolio.

Yesterday, the so-called ‘safe haven’ metal fell a further 8 per cent, to under $1,400 per ounce, bringing it down to its lowest level in two years. It is now in bear market territory, having fallen 27 per cent from its record high in the autumn of 2011. As a company we warned the price was too high 15 months ago.

Most analysts agree that this week’s crash has been led by weak economic data coming out of China. The economy of the People’s Republic, the world’s second largest, grew by 7.7 per cent in the first quarter of 2013, down from 7.9 per cent in the previous quarter, sparking fears over a serious slow down in the superpower’s economy and the likely global consequences of this. I believe that people are also now realising that Gold is not a good long term investment.

News that Cyprus is to sell off its gold reserves, as part of its bailout in order to raise around 400m euros, plus notions that the Federal Reserve in the US is now less likely to extend its programme of quantitative easing (QE), has also served to exacerbate the situation.

To my mind, what has happened to gold recently highlights that, like never before – as we’re living in fast-changing, volatile times in an increasingly globalised and interdependent world – has a well-diversified, professionally-managed portfolio been so important to mitigate adverse external factors and benefit from the positive ones.

Personally I believe the next asset class to fall in the next 18 months will be Govt Bonds. That however doesn’t change my advice which is invest with investment managers such as JP Morgan, Goldman Sachs and GAM who all manage excellent well diversified portfolios.

Boston Attack – why ? Cowardice act of violence

As i was getting ready at work , i was shocked to read about the terrible explosion in Boston , all I could think was why ? These people went out to have some fun and many went to collect money for good causes .

At least two people have been killed and more than 80 others hurt after two explosions near the finish line of the Boston Marathon, police have said.

I hope whoever did this will feel the full wrath of the justice department .

We live in the world were terrorism hides in the darkness ready to pounce at any second , enjoy your life today and do what you want to do as tomorrow is a day that never comes , would be a pity arriving at the pearly gates and wishing I wish I had that ?

Democratic nations must try to find ways to starve the terrorist and the hijacker of the oxygen of publicity on which they depend.-Margaret Thatcher

I tempered this quote , terrorist are only looking for attention .

My thoughts , prayers and condolence are with the great people of Boston ,
