    HYIPs – Solutions for Traders?

    “Illusions are something pleasant. The disadvantage is that they tend to burst like a burble.” – Wolfgang Kurz

    Investopedia describes a high-yield investment program (HYIP) as a fraudulent investment scheme that purports to deliver extraordinarily high returns on investment.

    China's smartphone upstarts get ready to take the battle global

    Reuters Breakingviews
    Chinese manufacturers of smartphones like Coolpad and Huawei have seized control of large parts of the domestic market via a tempting value-for-money proposition that blows the $500 models out of the water.
