Last weeks anniversary of the Dodd/Frank bill and this weeks "show" from DC caused me to take a step back and think more generally about the state of the financial markets since the last "crisis". (maybe a glass of wine was involved too). I found some interesting facts about the current global financial system/markets and put them in a general article below.
The reader can draw their own conclusions. However, IMO it seems that not too much has changed, and the markets are still "not your father's market" and may never be. This leads me to conclude that investors need to be open minded to non-traditional strategies for non-traditional market conditions.
So this weeks non-traditional post for informational reading can be found at
