re: How do I buy British pounds? - Doc Fenton
Another option would be a longer-term paired trade, long the GBP, and short the EUR, per this type of logic: "[link=(http://www.marketwatch.com/story/buy-britain-but-sell-europe-after-stunning-brexit-rebuke-2016-06-24)]Buy Britain, but sell Europe after stunning Brexit rebuke[/link]".

re: How do I buy British pounds? - Doc Fenton
Some of it could be irrational, but for the most part, currency moves are made by the most sophisticated investors in the market. Even if the overall UK economy remains okay, the demand for FX swaps is often dependent on wholesale deals generating demand for British pounds. This is dependent on the ...

re: How do I buy British pounds? - Doc Fenton
I'll add one more nugget of information with the Swedish krona (SEK), since there has been some talk of Swedexit. 8.109 --> 8.746 (+7.86%) 8.332 --> 8.484 (+1.82%) So the SEK devalued against the USD only mildly more so than the EUR. If they vote on exit, it will be a long time from now....

re: How will the GOP get Trump voters back in their corner assuming HRC is elected? - Doc Fenton
I think you underestimate the fluidity of party affiliation at this particular part of American history. For the 2016 election? Yeah, obviously vote Johnson and hope that Hillary beats Trump. But in 2020 and beyond, things can shift quite rapidly. If you want to be on the side of liberty, then ideal...

re: How will the GOP get Trump voters back in their corner assuming HRC is elected? - Doc Fenton
The GOP won't need to. The Trump voters will join with the Bernie Sanders supporters, and those voters in the GOP who still value liberty will pick off Hillary supporters to form a new alliance. Parties aren't important. Liberty is. The Trump voters must be discarded at all costs. Forever....

re: US bond yields could soon go negative. Please explain. - Doc Fenton
There are many investors who invest in government bonds denominated in foreign currencies in order to hedge against currency risk, but ignoring the currency-hedging aspect of things, there are three big things to think about here: [i]#1.

re: Johnson or bust - Doc Fenton
This is not just about philosophy and intellectual debates. This is about liberty and moral revulsion at the Trump supporters who so obviously oppose it. In terms of who would be best for freedom and American values, this is about how I would rate the candidates: #1. Gary Johnson #2. Hillary ...
