The importance of health has not been as clear for a long time as it was in 2020. Detached from the discussion about the specifics of COVID-19 on mortality compared to other viruses, the need for protection is great and helplessness without a medical response is harmful to the common good. For this reason, experts around the globe are working to find active ingredients and reduce dependence on China for care. Investors have the opportunity to profit from this development.Read

Since the beginning of 2017, Bitcoin has been trading at over USD 1,000.00 and the establishment of this psychological mark has been celebrated by the crypto community as a historic breakthrough of a new system. A system that will continue to exist as an alternative to fiat money and as a new currency. The main argument for the Bitcoin was and still is that the number is finite. During 2017, more and more people became interested in the digital currency and the price escalated to USD 19,738.00. Even gold, as the oldest currency in the world, is almost finite, because it cannot be printed and must be found and mined at great expense. Since the beginning of the week, the price of gold has been trading at a historical level of around USD 1,940.00 and the question arises as to how much further the value of the precious metal can increase.Read

The price of gold has been rising for more than a year and there is no end in sight. As long as the central banks print money to cure the problems of the Corona Pandemic, the flight from money will continue and investors will exchange paper for gold or other tangible assets. If you have no plans today, then you should think about investing in gold. If you already have a busy schedule, then you should take the time. Don't put yourself in the position of being annoyed at not having traded after these lines when the price reaches USD 2,000.00 and above.Read

Investors usually assume that their investment should increase from the time they enter the market. The sellers of the shares have already given up this hope or they see the potential as limited, but sometimes it is also personal circumstances that contribute to a decision to sell. As soon as the demand for a company's shares exceeds the supply, the value will usually rise. Usually, positive news about an industry or a company is the trigger for a renewed increase in interest.Read

In recent weeks, the German media have frequently reported on a so-called supply chain law. The aim of such a law is to ensure that German companies respect human rights and protect the environment in the procurement of materials and products. The world should become a better place and ruthless business practices should not endanger fair competition. Sounds like an exciting initiative that can protect consumers from the unwitting purchase of ethically and morally questionable products. The law has yet to be implemented because market participants fear a competitive disadvantage for German companies. But there would also be winners - even at the petrol pump.Read

Gold is money. Geologists of explorers, engineers of developers and the miners of producers - all are involved in bringing the world's oldest currency to us. The precious metal is also in demand in the modern society of the 21st century, and for a significant reason: gold cannot be printed and is therefore essentially different from the so-called fiat currency of central banks. Central banks around the world are currently printing money on a large scale to provide the general public with capital to prevent unrest and the collapse of the rest of the economy.Read

There are niches in which a lot of money is earned because the companies produce something that either many customers need and it is protected by corresponding patents or it is a product that is particularly rare and therefore valuable. An important element of our modern society is for example helium. This inert gas is needed for magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and semiconductors, among other things. It is also of decisive importance for the development and operation of rocket technology and space research. With the increasing electrification of everyday life and the opening up of the universe, interest in helium will increase - investors are beginning to position themselves.Read

The Blockchain phenomenon has kept the world in a state of excitement in the second half of 2017. A revolution by many young entrepreneurs and investors seemed to be on the way. Business models were springing up like mushrooms. There were almost no barriers to market entry, as most investors were greedy freeloaders and pursued the illusion that in the near future everything will be tokenized and would end up on the Blockchain. Because most market participants had no idea about encryption technologies, critical questions were rarely asked. Sounds bizarre, but that's how it was. Three years later, a number of companies are still active, either because they were able to develop a business model or because they have not run out of money yet.Read

Central banks around the world are currently printing more money than ever before in connection with the Corona Pandemic to keep the rest of the economy afloat and maintain social peace. The short-time work allowance is equivalent to an unconditional basic income, and given the alternatives, that is a good thing at the moment. The danger, however, is that an addiction to cheap money will arise and the bubble in the shares of Facebook, Amazon, Apple, Netflix, Google (Alphabet) and Microsoft will continue to escalate. The value of these six US companies is now almost equal to the combined market value of the following indices: DAX, France CAC, FTSE 100, Italy MIB, S&P TSX and Spain IBEX. But the winner of this development is also the oldest currency in the world: gold!Read
