    Steen's Chronicle: Meet Mr and Mrs Consensus

    Steen's Chronicle: Meet Mr and Mrs Consensus
    The US, its policymakers, its investors and its analysts are in thrall to a foolish narrative – that China must and will fail. The consensus on this is as breathtaking as it is arrogant and they are all guilty of ignoring what's really going on in China, where emerging markets are actually headed and what medicine the American economy really needs.

    Volatility is here to stay, adapt your trading strategies
    Traders tend to like a heightened volatility environment but it is crucial to have some perspective on it or be at risk of applying the "wrong" strategies and fight an unnecessary uphill battle. While pundits are often quick to pitch a one-side-fits-all strategy to hawk their latest investment fund, the reality is that no strategy works equally well in all environments. Adapting is a crucial skill for survival and ultimately thriving at the trading and investing profession.

    Where to for wearables?

    Wearables will become the world's best-selling consumer electronics product after smartphones, according to new forecasts by market research firm Euromonitor. Nyshka Chandran writes that sales of autonomous wearable electronics, or smart wearables, are projected to exceed 305 million units in 2020, with a compound annual growth rate of 55% during the next five years. Smartphones will still maintain their dominance in the consumer market with sales projected to top 1.6 billion units in 2020. Two main categories make up the wearables market: Autonomous wearables, which include smartwatches and the Google Glass, and passive wearables, also known as basic wearables.

    Chinese smartphone firm Oppo takes on Apple, Samsung

    Business Spectator
    Apple reigns supreme in China's smartphone market – the largest in the world. But it faces a challenger – Oppo, the Chinese smartphone maker with global ambitions. Like many other Chinese manufacturers, Oppo has to fight negative perceptions of 'made in China' products. Oppo innovations include a rotating camera and patented fast battery charging technology. But it is making inroads in emerging markets like Thailand, Indonesia and India. In Indonesia, the company sold 1.97 million smartphones last year compared to Apple’s 321,000. But while some Asian customers are willing to ditch their iPhone or Samsung Galaxy for an Oppo phone, it is still an uphill battle for Oppo to gain the same brand recognition as its international peers.

    Medium term

    UPDATE: Managing risk in Apple

    Trader /
    United States
    On September 9 I laid out a trade in Apple that would benefit from a positive near-term reaction to last week's product announcement event. After an initially weak reaction, AAPL bounced back on Thursday and Friday, closing the week at the highest daily and weekly close since mid-August.
