Born in Munich, he first studied economics and graduated in business administration at the Ludwig-Maximilians-University in 1995. As he was involved with the stock market at a very early stage, he now has more than 30 years of experience in the capital markets. In the historic year 2000, he trained as a CEFA analyst in Frankfurt and has since then accompanied over 20 IPOs in Germany.

Until 2018, he held various positions at banks as an asset manager, capital market and macro expert as well as fundamental equity analyst. He is passionate about the energy, commodity and technology markets as well as the tactical and strategic asset allocation of liquid investment products. As an expert speaker at investment committee meetings of funds as well as at customer events, he can still describe the course of the 1987 crash, one of the major buying opportunities of the last 33 years on the stock market.

Today, he knows that the profit in shares is not necessarily the result of buying cheaply, but above all of avoiding mistakes and recognizing in good time when markets are ready to let air out. After all, in addition to basic fundamental analysis, investing in stocks is above all a phenomenon of global liquidity and this must be monitored regularly.

GameStop, AMC, Bitcoin Group, Triumph Gold - Chaos is the order of the day!

  • Gold

Now the stock market must show how much steam is still in the boiler. Again, the DAX could mark a new ATH the day before yesterday; it was at 15,687 points. Here the air was then somewhat thin, and the afternoon brought a correction to below 15,600 points. The investment community has taken a rest here for the time being. The volatility as a fluctuation indicator even came back strongly in the last few days but then fell back below 20. This indicator shows that the need for hedging is probably dwindling, i.e. the interest of the investment community is instead directed upwards. Some stocks are worth keeping on the radar.

Heidelberger Druck, Steinhoff, Adler Modemärkte, RYU Apparel - These penny stocks are exploding!

  • Investments

Whenever the stock market marks another high, investors think about which stocks might be "left behind." Sure, there are undervalued stocks, yet the market usually has good reasons why stocks are trading low or even in the penny stock range. Often, these are stocks that have reported very low figures or operate an uncompetitive business model. While DAX stocks were able to climb to new highs again yesterday, some stocks still lag or show interesting special movements. We take a closer look at a few stocks that fluctuated strongly.

Royal Dutch Shell, BP, Gazprom, Saturn Oil + Gas - The oil rally is starting now!

  • Oil

Now it is getting really exciting on the oil market. Brent is scratching at the USD 70 mark and WTI is preparing to leave the USD 67 mark behind. At the moment, oil prices are moving at the upper end of their annual range. In addition to a general shortage of raw materials, there is now some inflationary pressure, and to add, many market participants expect a travel boom in the summer. All of this requires energy, and most of it is still made up of fossil components. For some time now, oil prices have benefited from the prospect of a gradual increase in demand. The decisive factor is the economic recovery, especially in the USA, China and large parts of Europe. In this environment, the oil ministers of the OPEC+ Group intend to discuss their production policy on Tuesday.

Millennial Lithium, Orocobre, ThyssenKrupp, NSJ Gold - Bitcoin versus Commodities - bull market ahead!

  • Investments

It could still end badly! The crypto world corrects properly; Bitcoin has now lost over 50% from the top. Whether it was the ban in China or simply an exaggeration - we do not know. The fact is that stocks continue to rise just like yields, i.e. the inflation trend in assets of all kinds is once again in full swing. The stock and real estate markets are not bothered by the higher interest rates, and commodities are also marking new highs every day. The bull market in commodities seems well-founded if one wants to evaluate the physical scarcity of wood, iron, nickel, copper and aluminum. The same is true for gold & silver. Will lithium also start again soon?

Airbus, Lufthansa, TUI, Silver Viper - Here we go!

  • Silver

In the third wave of the Corona pandemic, hope is now growing that life is returning to a new normal for ordinary citizens. If this is the correct decision criterion, the daily incidence figures are falling briskly, and public life seems to be gradually becoming possible again. Airbus, Lufthansa and TUI are showing the first signs of economic relief. Reason for us to research a few things in more detail.

Bitcoin Group, SUSE, Barrick Gold, Troilus Gold - Gold is back!

  • Gold

Now the question arises: precious metals or crypto? The answer was straightforward in recent days because the cryptocurrencies corrected hand in hand with the Bitcoin crash by up to 80%. On the other hand, gold and silver were able to optimize their chart trajectories upwards and regained the levels from last summer. Gold is now USD 150 short of the 2020 high, and silver is just under USD 2 short. Precious metal fans say that this is all to be done; the crypto community, on the other hand, calls the digital currency the new salvation. Currently, this is probably a problematic stalemate for investors, but the long-term trends speak in favor of gold.

NEL, Plug Power, FuelCell, dynaCERT: Hydrogen stocks - is there a comeback?

  • Hydrogen

At the start of the year, they were the hit stocks - the hydrogen stocks. The expectation was that governments would heavily subsidize hydrogen alongside electromobility to help another green alternative to the internal combustion engine get off the ground. The idea was good but failed on only one point: battery-powered vehicles already exist in large numbers, but H2 vehicles suitable for mass production do not yet exist. With a lack of products, no tax rebates or the like can be granted either. So today, the private consumer can only choose one green technology, the electric or hybrid drive. Is there still a future for hydrogen values?

Chips sold out: Nvidia, Infineon, AMD, Defense Metals - E-mobility empties the shelves!

  • Investments

The high-tech industry is currently not coming to rest. The great excitement in the industry is enormous, resulting in delivery bottlenecks for important control and sensor chips, especially for the automotive industry. In addition to delayed deliveries, there are also general resource bottlenecks in the raw materials sector. Often, 50% higher immediate delivery prices for individual components have to be included in the calculation. The chip shortage is a side effect of the Corona Crisis. Due to home offices and misjudgments of the limited manufacturing capacities, supply bottlenecks for semiconductors and components have been occurring since 2020. We take a look at an industry that has had a hard time since the trade war between the USA and China.

Attention Crypto Investors! Coinbase, SAP, Glencore, Barsele Minerals - Where are the opportunities?

  • Gold

Those who want to make returns today often attach themselves to well-known names such as Elon Musk, Warren Buffett or even Cathie Wood. The latter is a former portfolio manager at Alliance Bernstein. She has become known in recent years for being a trump card of technology investors. Her ARK funds raised a whopping USD 34.5 billion in 2020. One of its flagship funds is the ARK Innovation ETF, which has its largest positions invested in NASDAQ darlings. For the past month, this fund has had a problem, as 14% declines have rarely been seen on a monthly basis. Tesla, Coinbase, and Zoom are the largest positions and they are dropping big time right now.

Trend break, please look closely! BYD, Nel ASA, Bitcoin Group, SunMirror

  • Investments

"Turned on its heel" would be an apt description for Wednesday. Bitcoin was at the record-breaking USD 65,000 mark in mid-April and there were announcements that the USD 100,000 mark would soon be on the cards. Since that high, the cryptocurrency has plummeted by over 50% at the low and immediately stormed back up. The anti-protagonists of this casino mentality cite the decarbonization of the planet as a reason why the entire crypto world should be condemned for its power-hungry mining. Others see blockchain technology as the most significant digitization breakthrough of the future. Some companies are directly affected by these movements.
