    Unlike "fundamental analysis," which leaves much to human interpretation, Charts never lie as "they are a history of the facts!"


    Today's investment markets are dominated by mutual funds' (collectives known as Unit and Investment trusts, OEICs, ETFs) with most being passive "index-trackers," so it is important to know how the main geographical stock-indices have performed, and more importantly, are likely to perform.


    The "Off the Shelf" service is explained within the video, whereas the "Bespoke" service offers the same template for any other quoted security, be it a stock-index, individual share, bonds, fund, or commodity. Currencytiming is a similar solution via a sister site.

    Nice Words

    'I've been reading Investmentmatter's publications for over a decade and subscribing to the premium service for several years. Throughout this period, Charlie has consistently provided one of the most useful financial summaries out there; presenting 'the financial world in a week' as a well-written and succinct commentary. The analysis includes data not covered by most 'mainstream' sources, which makes it even more informative. Compared to the vested-interest and perma-bull outlooks from investment groups, Investmentmatters provides a more robust view of global markets with an appropriate degree of scepticism. The text is incisive and presented in a clear and easy to understand manner, with plenty of charts. Definite value for money and highly recommended.'.............UK-based macro economist @ 30 July 2015


    Thanks for the positive response! I shall certainly follow the blog of a man who predicted the 2008 meltdown three years before it happened!.........Ronel S, Capetown Property Attorney and LinkedIn follower January 2017
