Show Notes

The Finance Ghost and Mohammed Nalla (Moe-Knows) discuss some of the macro ratios that can be used in assessing whether the market is experiencing a general feeling of fear or greed.

With an understanding of high-level tools like the lumber-to-gold ratio or a reading of the VIX, investors and traders can try to time their market entries and exits more effectively.

The hosts also touch on the recent earnings boom among South African mining companies and the feel-good news of increased toy sales in the past year.

Magic Markets #46: M&A - Cash vs. Share Deals

In Episode 46 of Magic Markets, The Finance Ghost and Mohammed Nalla take a break from trading-related concepts to talk about another critical part of the financial markets ecosystem: mergers and acquisitions.

Zoom tried to do an all-share deal and Five9 shareholders weren't interested in receiving Zoom shares in return for selling Five9.

The benefit of having more than 25 years of combined financial markets experience is clear in this episode. Magic Markets is your invitation to sit in on our conversations about the markets. ...
