Your Phone is your wallet!

It is a nightmare to walk around with all this physical cards in the wallet, like debit cards, credit cards and all the gift cards. What if we can store all this things in a phone? What about all the paper money and coins that is growing in your wallet like a balloon in your pocket? Do we need this?

Google giftcards

Google and Apple is one of my favorite companies in this universe, with high degree of innovation. Google demonstrated the new Google Wallet at a press conference on May 26, 2011, but it was released for the U.S market only on September 19, 2011.

Google Wallet is a mobile payment system that allow its users to store debit cards, credit cards, loyalty cards and gift cards among other things, as well as redeeming sales promotions on their mobile phone.

The integration of Google Wallet and Gmail allows users to send money through Gmail attachments, and this reminds me like PayPal. You can simply send money to your friend with a simple email address. It can`t be more easy.

I`m not in doubt, this wireless payment solution is a product for the future, but so far it`s not a big hit in the U.S. The service works with the 300,000 plus MasterCard PayPass merchant locations, with Visa licensing their Visa PayWave system to Google for use in Wallet as of September 20, 2011.

Google is probably not the right company for this business? It is a great business in China, so we know it works out there. Apple is probably the right company to do something with that. They are the right company to fix it.

Apple will launch its new iPhone 6 on September 9, and it will feature NFC (Near Field Communication), according to rumors. Apple`s biggest post-PC rival Google is already implementing NFC for wireless payment.

There is a huge difference between Google and Apple. First of all; Apple has much more phone users than Google, and they already hosts millions of credit cards and processes billions of dollars worth of transaction through its mobile application and content store.

Apple can implement the new wireless system on its hundreds of brick and mortar stores and give users a big reason to sign up for the new system. They can lauch some promotions in the stores to attract more NFC transactions.

Apple have a big opportunity as a marketing platform by generating advertising revenue from customer brands wanting to reach shoppers while in a store. Itunes accounts have been used in Apple`s marketplace, but is very tiny compared to the vast retail market.

Tesla`s CEO Elon Musk`s «baby» and now eBay`s Paypal and Square will be challenged. PayPal is still very popular, many thanks to a large pool of merchants that supports the system. Square which recently introduced money transfer through text messaging will probably lose some market share in the future.

The U.S consumers has not yet adopted the Google Wallet, and Apple`s success with their wireless transaction system will largely depend on the acceptance of the retail industry. A group of chains has formed a company in 2012. One of them is Wal-Mart Stores Inc, and they will try to build a mobile-payment system which is not yet released.

Apple seems to cooperate with Visa, MasterCard and American Express, but this is still rumors. I will wait for some more news on September 9. Anyway; wireless money transaction is a lucrative business. The whole world is built on money transactions.

 

Please give us some feedback.

Summertime!

 

Thank god it`s friday! Thank god it`s summertime! Shinybull will take a break and enjoy the summer, and this summer will be awesome. There is only 8 teams left in the World Cup, and later today half of them will fight. First out is Germany against France. Later today we will see Brasil against Colombia.

world cup

 

The quarter-final in Fortaleza between Brazil and Colombia is more like a match between Brazil`s Neymar, who has driven Brazil forward with four goals, and Colombia`s biggest star and goal-getter Rodriguez.

I will miss two big players from both teams. Colombia have cruised to the quarter-finals despite the heartbraking loss of Radamel Falcao. One of Brazil`s biggest hero Luiz Gustavo leaves a hole in the quarter-final against Colombia today as he have two yellow cards.

During four games, Gustavo ran more than a marathon. He ran 46,1 km and 6km more than Nymar. More surprisingly; Gustavo ran 16,3 km with the ball at his feet. He also recovered the ball 34 times, and that is the fourth highest total in the World Cup so far.

It is easy to understand why Brazil`s coach Luiz Felipe Scolari and the Brazilians are fretting so much about how to replace him. Scolari have an idea of bringing in Maicon for Dani Alves to make the team`s right side more robust. The playmaker James Rodriguez will need attention while Brazil will have to handle Colombia`s taste for exploring the flanks, something even more tempting when up against Brazil`s full-backs. Scolari consider to switch to a 3-5-2 formation.

Colombia have won just two of their 25 previous games against Brazil and have never defeated them on Brazilian soil. Brazil are unbeaten in 41 successive home matches. James Rodriguez has scored in each of his last six appearances for Colombia. It`s all set up for a great match today.

TETRRF-00024113-001

What will the trading activity be today as we have two big soccer matches on the screen, in addition to a BBQ party and celebrating 4th of July? The story starts in 1775 as people in New England started their fight against the British for their independence.

Then on July 2, 1776, the Congress secretly started its voting for independence from Britain. After that on July 4, 1776 Declaration of Independence was published. But on July 8, 1776 the first public reading of the Declaration of Independence was done. Declaration of Independence was then signed on August 2, 1776.

The first Independence Day was celebrated with parade show, games, guns fires, bells, bonfires throughout the United States. By that time, till 1791 the term Independence Day was not used. But it`s more to come.

TdF

Tour de France starts tomorrow, and I really look forward to the next three-weeks with Tour de France on the screen. The big question is; Will Team Sky win for the third time in a row? Last time the winner was Chris Froom. In 2012, the winner was the British Bradley Wiggins. Both from team Sky.

Alberto Contador seems to be in good shape, and we will probably see some wildcards we didn`t think about. It all begins tomorrow with a road stage from Leeds to Harrogate, while the peleton remains in Yorkshire the following day with a stage from York to Sheffield.

The third and final British leg of the 2014 Tour will be between Cambridge and London on July 7, before the riders proceeds to France via Eurostar. Defending champion Chris Froome will start along with Vincenzo Nibali (Astana), Alberto Contador (Saxo Bank) and Alejandro Valverde (Movistar). However there is no place for Team Sky`s 2012 race winner Bradley Wiggins.

Peter Sagan (Cannondale), Marcel Kittel (Argos Shimano) and Mark Cavendish (Omega Pharma Quickstep), are expected to fight it out for the green points jersey. I expect Alexander Kristoff (Katusha) to be an outsider. Alexander`s stepfather got him interested in cycling rather than soccer. Wow!  It`s headed for a great summer!

BlaBlaCar raised $100 million in venture funding

 

Don`t drive long distances alone anymore with empty seats. Now, you can share your trip with passengers and best of all, cover your fuel costs. The price per seat and the number of seats you can offer are limited because BlaBlaCar is designed for drivers to offset their driving costs and not to make a profit.

Blablacar

 

Top carpooling routes are London-Manchester £15, Birmingham-Leeds £8 and London-Paris£24. It`s a third of the price of most trains, and much more convenient than buses.

 

The European ride-sharing app BlaBlaCar raised $100 million in venture funding, and that`s on of the largest venture investments in a French startup on record. According to Dow Jones VentureSource, Venture investors put $1,03 billion into French startups in 2013.

 

BlaBlaCar`s $100 million financing is nearly one-tenth of last year`s total. The music-streaming service Deezer I wrote about last week, raised $130 million in 2012. That`s two great French companies.

 

BlaBlaCar is founded in 2006, and their app lets travelers find divers heading where they need to go soon and connects them by mobile or email to arrange to share the ride. The average price for a seat is 16 U.K pounds ($25) or less. The fee partially covers the cost of fuel, tolls and other expenses.

 

The app suggests pricing so passengers and drivers don`t have to spend time haggling. The pricing feature has another purpose: prohibiting drivers from generating profits on the rides they give. This is distinct from apps that let users summon a driver on demand, such as Sidecar, UberX and Lyft, which all promote the idea that everyday drivers can make a living using their platforms.

 

You can rate passengers and drivers and review them like buyers and sellers do on the auction site eBay. Top-reviewed community members who have given or taken a lot of rides tend to draw a faster response when they use the app.

 

Accel is BlaBlaCar`s biggest shareholder, and they said that a startup raising $100 million will be expected to deliver a multibillion exit, and more important was the company`s ability to scale its business globally.

 

So far, they have grown in 11 new countries since 2012, and have about 150 full-time employees today. Most of the is based in Paris. According to their founders, they have increased their total registered users to 8 million from 1,5 million in a few years. 1 million users share rides each month via BlaBlaCar.

 

The service is available in France, Germany, Benelux, Spain, Russia, Portugal, Poland, Ukraine, U.K and Italy. They plan to use its funding to grow its business within the nations where it operates and expand to Turkey, Brazil and India.

 

BlaBlaCar has no plans to expand on the U.S market. Geography and topography make longer distance ridesharing less appealing, so the distance between U.S cities is so great that many travelers have to book a flight to reach their destination in time, Mazzella said.

 

BlaBlaCar`s competitiors is Carpooling.com GmbH in Germany and a younger startup in Ireland, which is Carma, and they are focusing on intracity trips.

Longest bull market in 85 years!

The stock market were on fire yesterday, beginning the 3rd quarter with the bulls clearly in charge. New all time highs came in yesterday, as the DOW came within two points of the highly watched 17,000 mark.

Bull

The DOW closed the session at 16956,07, and that`s up +129 points, which is a new all time high. The S&P500 was rallying higher for the fist five hours yesterday, but after breaking through previous all-time high, the S&P 500 ended the session up +13 points. Nasdaq traded up +1,55%.

The Bank for International Settlements has declared that stock markets are in a «euphoric» state. The Swiss-based financial institution that acts as a counterpart to national central banks has urged central banks globally to begin tightening interest-rate policies now while economies are growing rather than wait for another recession, when it will be too late.

The interest-rate can`t go lower than zero, basically, and if another financial crisis should hit the economy, the central banks will be without weapons to boost the economy again, BIS said. U.S interest-rate were high at about 5,3% when last recession started in 2007, which means they were better prepared than now.

What makes people scared is the longest bull market we have seen in 85 years now. The U.S market has gone more than two years without a correction, or a 10 percent drop, and that makes people nervous about stocks these days. But we have not seen so much QE either.

Some investors say the markets are unprepared. «low-for-long» interest rate can come to an end, U.S unemployment falling and the Fed`s asset purchase «tapering» ending in the fourth quarter is a combination of complacency and illiquidity could turn a snowball into an avalanche.

We will see a lot of important news this week. Later today we have ADP Employment Change coming in. Economists estimate private companies added 205,000 payrolls in June. Other various labor market indicators such as initial jobless claims and the regional manufacturing surveys suggest another trend-like month for payroll growth, said BofA Merril Lynch economists.

Factory Orders: Economists estimate the trade deficit shrunk to $45 billion in May from $47,2 billion the month prior. The ISM import index fell back below the ne export orders index, which intimates that the deficit came back down in the month, note Wells Fargo`s John Silva.

In addition; Fed Chair Yellen speaks today at 11:00 a.m EST. Everyone is listening when Janet Yellen speaks. Listen very close to every word she say. Last time she said that the market is not in a bubble. I look forward to listen to her later today.

Who is Sergey Brin?

Sergey Mikhaylovich Brin is an American business magnate and computer scientist who, with Larry Page co-founded Google, which is one of the most profitable Internet companies. As of June 2014, his personal wealth was estimated to be $30 billion, and together, Brin and Page own about 16 percent of Google.

sergeybrin

(Picture: Sergey Brin, Google Inc)

 

Brin was born in Moscow in the Soviet Union to Russian Jewish parents, Michael Brin and Eugenia Brin, both graduates of Moscow State University. His father is a mathematics professor at the University of Maryland, and his mother a researcher at NASA`s Goddard Space Flight Center.

The economist newspaper referred to Brin as an «Enlightenment Man», and someone who belive that «knowledge is always good, and certainly always better than ignorance», a philosophy that is summed up by Google`s motto «Organize the world`s information and make it universally accessible and usesful» and «Don`t be evil».

When Brin was 6 years (1976) old, his family felt compelled to emigrate to the United States. Sergey`s father has earlier told that he was «forced to abandon his dream of becoming an astronomer even before he reached college».

He claims Communist Party heads barred Jews from upper professional ranks by denying them entry to universities, as Jews excluded from the physics departments in particular. Michael Brin therefore changed his major to mathematics where he received nearly straight A`s.

He said; «Nobody would even consider me for graduate school because I was Jewish. At Moscow State University, Brin said, Jews were required to take their entrance exams in different rooms from non-Jewish applicants and they were marked on a harsher scale.

In 1977, after his father returned from a mathematics conference in Warsaw, Poland, he announced that it was tome for the family to emigrate. «We cannot stay here anymore», he told his wife and mother. At the conference, he was able to «mingle freely with colleagues from the United States, France, England and Germany and discovered that his intellectual brethren in the West were not «monsters». He said; «I was the only one in the family who decided it was really important to leave».

Sergey`s mother was less willing to leave their home in Moscow, where they had spent their entire lives, but the decision ultimately came down to Sergey. In May 1979, they were granted their official exit visas and were allowed to leave the country. «I know the hard times that my parents went through their and am very thankful that I was brought to the States», Sergey said in an interview in October 2000.

A few weeks before Sergey`s 17th birthday (1990), his father led a group og high school math students, including Sergey, on a two-week exchange program to the Soviet Union. As Brin recalls, the trip awakened his childhood fear of authority and he remembered that «his first impulse on confronting Soviet oppression had been to throw pebbles at a police car».

On the second day of the trip, while the group toured a sanatorium in the countryside near Moscow, Brin took his father aside, looked him in the eye and said; «Thank you for taking us all out of Russia.»

Brin attended grade school at Paint Branch Montessori School in Adelphi, Maryland, but he received further education at home; his father, a professor in the department of mathematics at the University of Maryland, encouraged him to learn mathematics.

He attended Eleanor Roosevelt High School in Greenbelt, Maryland. In 1990, Brin enrolled in the University of Maryland to study computer science and mathematics, where he received his Bachelor of science in May 1993 with honors.

Brin began his graduate study in computer science at Stanford University on a graduate fellowship from the National Science Foundation. In 1993, he interned at Wolfram Research, who were the developers of Mathematica. As of 2008, he is on leave from his PhD studies at Stanford.

He met Larry Page at Stanford. Brin jokingly said; «We`re both kind of obnoxious». They seemed to disagree on most subjects, but after spending time together, they became intellectual soul-mates and close friends. Together, the pair authored a paper titled «The Anatomy of a Large-Scale Hypertextual Web Search Engine».

They both realized they had succeeded in creating a superior engine for searching the web and suspended their PhD studies to work more on their system. Mark Malseed, the co-founder of «The Google story», wrote; «Soliciting funds from faculty members, family and friends, Brin and Page scraped together enough to buy some servers and rent that famous garage in Menlo Park.

Sun Microsystems co-founder Andy Bechtolsheim wrote a $100,000 check to Google Inc, but the problem was that Google Inc did not yet exist. The company hadn`t yet been incorporated. For two weeks, as they handled the paperwork, the young men had nowhere to deposit the money.

Google logo

The Economist magazine describes Brin`s approach to life, like Page`s, as based on a vision summed up by Google`s motto; «of making all the world`s information universally accessible and useful».

Others have compared their vision to the impact of Johannes Gutenberg, the inventor of modern printing:

In 1440, Johannes Gutenberg introduced Europe to the mechanical printing press, printing Bibles for mass consumption. The technology allowed for books and manuscripts – originally replicated by hand – to be printed at a much faster rate, thus spreading knowledge and helping to usher in the European Renaissance. Google has done a similar job.

The authors of «The Google Story» wrote; «Not since Gutenberg…has any new invention empowered individuals, and transformed access to information, as profoundly as Google. Also not long after the two «cooked up their new engine for web searches, they began thinking about information that is today beyond the web», such as digitizing books, and expanding health information.

Sergey Brin married biotech analyst and entrepreneur Anne Wojcicki in the Bahamas in May 2007. She has an active interest in health information, and they have brainstormed with leading researchers about the human genome project. Brin instinctively regards genetics as a database and computing problem. So does his wife, who co-founded the firm, http://www.23andme.com, which lets people analyze and compare their own genetic makeup (consisting of 23 pairs of chromosomes).

Together they have a son, born in December 2008, and a daughter, born in late 2011. In August 2013, it was announced Brin and Anne were living separately. Brin`s mother, Eugenia, has been diagnosed with Parkinson`s disease.

Brin used the services of 23andme and discovered that although Parkinson`s is generally not hereditary, both he and his mother possess a mutation of the LRRK2 gene (G2019S) that puts the likelihood of him developing Parkinson`s in later years between 20 and 80 percent.

An editorial in The Economist magazine states that «Mr Brin regards his mutation of LRRK2 as a bug in his personal code, and thus as no different from the bugs in computer code that Google`s engineers fix every day. By helping himself, he can therefore help others as well. He consider himself lucky, but Mr. Brin was making a much bigger point. Isn`t knowledge always good, and certainly always better than ignorance?

Sergey Brin is an investor in Tesla Motors, which has developed the Tesla Roadster, a 244-mile (393 km) range battery electric vehicle as well as the Tesla Model S, a 265-mile (426 km) range battery electric vehicle.

In 2008, he invested $4,5 million in Space Adventures, the Virginia-based space tourism company. Space Adventures, the only company that sends tourists to space, has sent five of the so far. He and Page are also trying to help solve the world`s energy and climate problems at Google philanthropic arm Google.org, which invests in the alternative energy industry to find wider sources of renewable energy.

Brin was also involved in the Google driverless car project, and in September 2012, at the signing of the California Driverless Vehicle Bill, Brin predicted that within five years, robotic cars will be available to the general public. Wow, we will wait for that car. What a great story!

Why transportation is so important

 

Many times the activity begin in the Rail Average before the Industrial Average. Before the economic activity began, raw materials will have to be moved from the suppliers to manufacturers. Before the automotive companies could increase production, more steel need to be transported. An increase in activity among the rail stocks would foreshadow an increase in business activity for the industrial stocks. You can also foreshadow an economic downturn.

tran 27 june

(Chart: Dow Jones Transportation Average)

The internet has changed the economy and is more different from hundred years ago, and the makeup of the DJTA has changed to favor the airlines. There is still credibility in using DJTA to confirm movements in the DJIA. Transport stocks are much more dependent on the economic environment than the average stock and will likely foreshadow economic growth.

 

Energy and labor cost from a large portion of expenses, The airline business is cyclical and revenues are highly susceptible to economic changes. Airline companies typically carry above average levels of debt and will be more vulnerable to changes in interest rates.

 

To reflect the added risks above airline stocks have traditionally sold significantly below market multiples. If the PE for the S&P 500 is 28, the average airline might sell for only 8-10 times earnings.

 

Airline companies bear the burden of all interest rates, energy costs and labor costs, but are still likely to act as a leading indicator of the general economic environment. Airlines biggest fear should however be that people will stop flying in airplanes.

 

That`s why I`m following airplane and shipping stocks all the time. It gives me a sign of a new activity in the economy or a real slowdown in the economy. As you can see on the chart above, the activity is great, which is good for the transportation stocks.

How to identify the trend in the market

Do you know where we are in the stock market right now? Is it cheap or is it expensive? We are near the all time high. What is the next? A stock market crash? A correction, or a consolidation? Where do we find answers to all those questions?

Indu

As an investor you need to read the map. You need to identify facts and not make any assumptions or any forecast. You can`t belive or “feel like” in the stock market. That`s why traders trade what they see, not what they think.

It is dangerous if investors and traders begin to assume. Predicting the market is a difficult, if not impossible, game. Reading the markets is an empirical science. Investors and traders with success in the markets requires serious study and analysis that is fraught with success and failures.

Failure is painful and should be looked upon as learning experiences. Technical analysis is an art form and the eye grows keener with practice. Success is the trading market is a great thing, but don`t get to smug about it. Study both successes and failures with an eye to the future.

It`s a great thing to identify the primary trend and then catch the big moves. Two thing drives the market: the fact and the psychology. The market tends to go much longer than expected (what we see right now) and much deeper as expected.

You have to understand that the markets are influenced by emotions and prone to over-react both up and down. Therefore; you have to concentrate on identification and following: identify the trend and then follow the trend and the trend is in place until proved otherwise.

This is when the trend will end, it is proved otherwise.

I will do it as easy as possible and show you a basic method of how you can identify the trend. This can be a good starting point for you to develop analysis guidelines that you are comfortable with and understand.

The first step to identify the primary trend is to identify the individual trend of the Dow Jones Industrial average (DJIA) and Dow Jones Transportation Average (DJTA), individually. Use peak and trough analysis in order to ascertain the identity of the trend.

An Uptrend is defined by prices that form a series of rising peaks and rising troughs. In the chart you will then see higher highs and higher lows.

A Downtrend is defined by prices that form a series of declining peaks and declining troughs. In the chart you will then see lower highs and lower lows.

Once the trend has been identified, it is assumed valid until proved otherwise. A downtrend is considered valid until a higher low forms, and the ensuing advance off of the higher low surpasses the previous reaction high.

Below is a chart of the Dow Jones Transportation Average. I printed out the chart yesterday june 26, 2014. As you can see, in 2012 there was a consolidation period, and in 2013, and so far in 2014, it is all in an uptrend, but where is the top? Where is the peak?

Tran

After a peak, a series of lower lows and lower highs will be formed to make a downtrend. In the downtrend we will then see a bounce back and have a secondary rally. After a downtrend, you have to look for high volume days, like high volume washout days. High volume days signal that a possible change is looming. Alone, a high volume washout day is not a buy signal, but rather an indication to monitor price action a little closer.

If you see a higher low later on, it is too early to call it a change in the trend. The change of a trend is not confirmed until the previous reaction high is surpassed. It need to cross the trend line to call it a change in the trend.
An uptrend is considered in place until a lower low forms and the ensuing decline exceeds the previous low. You can see the uptrend in the Dow Jones Industrial average chart below. You can see a series of higher highs, and higher lows.

Bears jumping in on the top can sit on top for a long time with more all-time-highs to come, but professional traders and fund managers do this to make an insurance for their portfolio, because it is impossible to predict a new change in the trend.

Indu

All you have to do is to catch the big moves. To do this, use weekly charts to establish reaction highs and lows. But weekly charts may not portray the details you need. One possible solution is to apply a short moving average to the price plot. A 5-day moving average could be applied to smooth the price series and still allow for the details.

What I am talking about is not a science. It is just ment to offer insights and guidelines from which to begin careful study of the market movements and price action. Look at the charts, read the map and catch the big moves.
