About

The Last Bear is, despite the suggestion of its name, an unbiased provider of true financial as well as economic news. The Last Bear takes various financial and economic news in order to dissect them which enables The Last Bear to get you the news behind the news. This sets The Last Bear apart from your financial entertainment channels which are filled with biased unprofessional reporters who lack any knowledge about the topics they cover.

When financial and economic news hit the wires, they are almost guaranteed to have a bullish twist to them for one simple reason: 90% of market participants, in an attack of media induced stupidity, require a bull market or an increase in the price of the underlying equity in order to be the proud owner of a portfolio which produces profits. The sad but true story is that, again with the help of unprofessional professionals, most if not all those gains are eaten away by inflation as well as currency deterioration. 

There has been a decade long disconnect with what the media wants the news to be and what they really are. The most recent example is the financial crisis which unfolded in 2007, although it has been over 30 years in the making, and which continues to keep the global economy in a downward spiral.

The Last Bear is a rare outpost for those few individuals who care about the news behind the news and who are fed up with biased bullish coverage about every report that is released. Information passes fast and the same rules apply here. Once you read it it is already too late to act on it, but do not worry. The Last Bear will also provide forward looking analysis based on facts which may or may not help you.

Don't get it wrong, there is a time for bullish bears and bearish bulls. It all depends on reality. Sounds very simple, but to the majority it is a rather hard fact to grasp. Reality is something the majority attempts to avoid at all costs which explains not only the problems faced by individuals, financial as well as general, but also the reason for the increase in appetite for socialism.


By the way, a new avenue which will be covered by The Last Bear are developments in the Forex market, which is the biggest financial market with the highest liquidity and daily turnover of close to $4 Trillion. Do not dismiss the Forex market as part of your overall strategy unless you are as dumb as a mutual fund mismanager, but even some of those unprofessional professionals have started to embrace the Forex market although, as expected, with little or no success.


Do you run your own portfolio?


Great! That is much better than to rape your portfolio with the lack of sophistication offered by a mutual fund mismanager and you should yield much higher returns.  


FYI: A Simple Portfolio


A mix of index futures, most preferably the S&P 500 for the U.S., the FTSE 100 for the U.K. and the DAX 30 or CAC 40 for the EU, and some currency pairs plus 20% cash is enough for a successfully balanced portfolio. Stay away from over-diversification and keep it simple. Another thing to avoid is fundamental analysis as it is a waste of time and indicates nothing. Stick to technical analysis unless you want to run your own mutual fund and always find yourself three steps behind the curve.

Hi Beaudon,

thank you for the offer.

Hi Maria,

thank you for the offer as well.

Hey Bear,

I am part of the team at Forex MetraTrader Indicators. We're growing Forex community and I was wondering if you would fancy a guest post exchange or hosting perhaps?

Your contact details were nowhere to be found, thus I'm leaving this comment here with hopes you'll see it and respond.

Regards,

Nathan

Hey Nathan, thanks for the offer. I will contact you this weekend.

Hello Bear,

I am wondering if the posts with your recommended trades should be followed in real time, or if you maybe offer a signal trading service. I am posting here because I couldn't find contact information. Thanks for your attention.

Hi John, thanks for your comment. You can follow the signals in real time. I publish them as I take the trade myself. I do not offer a paid signal service yet, but am thinking about launching one. Should I decide to start providing signals I will post here on my blog about how I will do so.

Thanks John. I look forward to following your trades in the coming months.

Great, looking forward to have you here.
