This is a weekly chart of UK bonds/yield/Pound versus US bonds/yield/dollar…what can you see?
I have continued my research on correlated asset classes and it has been very fruitful.
Forward testing on EURUSD using the MOEX asset…here are the results so far.
I take one trade per day. Usually during the Asian session into the London session. I target 30-60 pips. Looking good so far.
I’m hoping to use this to make 25% minimum monthly returns on EURUSD trading alone.
It’s ridiculously simple and straightforward and I intend to teach it to part time traders, once I have perfected it.
Yours in the quest for success & significance,

To be a successful trader, you must:
– Understand dealer counterparty risk and trade it.
– Identify/create correlated/synthetic instruments and arbitrage the divergence.
So, I spent today researching on correlated asset classes specifically for the euro.
I have been looking at LIBOR spreads, swaps, OIS etc…and I think I finally found something that could be an edge for me when trading EURUSD, especially for spotting potential daily reversals.
It’s an asset class traded on the Moscow Exchange.
See pictures below.
I just read this article and I really thought to share.
Numbers don’t lie.
I like trading the financial markets, not just because of the potential for profit that it gives, but because trading, with all its numbers and charts tell a real story…about history, politics and the economy…

Leading indicators are a good place to start your fundamental analysis research.
Watch how this analyst used leading indicators to determine investor sentiment in China.
He kept mentioning building permits as a leading indicator…as well as M1 money supply.
I’ll research them once I can find some spare time!
Let’s also look at how we can track ISM versus 10 yr US Treasury notes…
I had a heated conversation on Skype with a trading buddy of mine.
And this was the summary.
I remember a trading mentor of mine telling me to identify where banks offload their dealer counterparty risk and use those assets to determine what banks wish to do.
It led me to do some online research and I stumbled on a few good resources for my global macro analysis, such as :
So I decided to post here.
“How about this for correlations. If the EUR/USD goes up and the USD/CHF goes down, is the market buying Euros and selling US Dollars and how would you know. Well EUR/CHF answers that question since it should rise along with the EUR/USD. If it doesn’t, its a false EUR/USD move so that high can be sold”

Furthermore, I’m up tonight researching on top hedge funds and I realise that Citadel’s CEO, Ken Griffin spent $500m on two art painintgs. He is a hedge fund trader, so him spending that much on art is an eye opener to me.
I then do some more research and discover that African art is growing.
Irma Stern’s Arab Priest artwork, seen above, sold for $4.8m at Bonhams. It holds the record as the most expensive African painting.
Prince Yemisi Shyllon, Nigeria’s largest private art collector who started collecting as an undergraduate, says his pieces have appreciated on average 10 times in 2 decades. That’s pretty decent ROI, in my opinion.
So, should I start buying relatively affordable pieces now from contemporary african artists and start a modest collection for my kids and grandkids?
Anyways, the articles below may throw some perspective on the potential!
Afterall, art appreciates when the artist is dead…hehehe!
