Financial blog wars

Josh Brown, writer of The Reformed Broker blog, this year again compiled a table of financial bloggers. Investment Postcards received the honor of being included in the “Jedi Masters” (big picture) category.

Josh commented as follows: “First, some caveats – I tried to include all the blogs I keep up with at least semi-regularly.  There may be some newer or less frequently updated blogs that aren’t here – please no hard feelings if we missed you, there’s always next year.  I also didn’t include all the tweeters and video bloggers, many of whom I consider to be great in their own right.”

Season’s greetings

 EmailPrint This Post Print This Post

With only a few trading days remaining, the curtain will soon be drawn on a year that has marked a remarkable turnaround in the global economy, propelling risky assets to levels pundits would not have dreamt of at the start of 2010.

The year has provided its fair share of surprises, making investment blogging a hugely fulfilling experience, i.e. to be able to share with readers, through the Investment Postcards site, my two cents’ worth of analysis on the events that defined the financial calendar. Thank you for your friendship and for allowing me into your lives with regular posts, and for your support and encouragement to successfully build the blogging site. (As an aside, if you are not already doing so  remember to also hook up with me on Facebook, Twitter and StockTwits for 24/7 investment snippets.)

Here’s wishing you and your family a blessed festive season full of fun, laughter and joy. May you have a wonderful 2011, and may all your wishes come true.

And now for a good laugh. In the spirit of the festive season, click here or on the image below to see a Christmas “production by the Du Plessis Family – Prieur, wife Isabel, daughter Monique (12) and son Jean (10).

Back to the economy: As if the burden of the financial shenanigans has not been onerous enough, Santa will probably also not offer much respite this year!

Investment Postcards – temporary snooze …

 EmailPrint This Post Print This Post

My computer has decided to follow the example of financial markets and take a Christmas snooze. What a bummer! The latest bunch of posts can therefore unfortunately not be published today and will only appear on the site during the course of tomorrow.

As always, I sincerely apologize for any inconvenience.

In the meantime, boys and girls, don’t get carried away by the avalanche of bullish stock market predictions for 2011, and remember to keep those tight stops in place and not to throw caution to the wind!

Hoping to connect again tomorrow (in between doing some last-minute shopping to add to the South African GDP).
