Global shares push higher, bonds steady ahead of Fed at Credence Independent Advisors

Nov 22, 2014

(Reuters) – World stocks inched up and U.S. bond yields steadied after almost three weeks of gains on Tuesday with Federal Reserve policy setters expected to end six years of aggressive monetary stimulus.   The Fed kicks off a two-day meeting later with markets betting on an announcement that it will stop its post-financial crisis high-intensity asset buying and reinforce that a softly-softly approach will be taken to raising rates.   With the euro zone running into turbulence again and China’s giant economy also struggling for pace, the prospect of a world without U.S. stimulus has troubled markets over the last couple of months, but they finally seem to be getting used to the idea.   European shares rose for the fourth time is six days, helped by better-than-expected results from pharmaceutical group Novartis and Swiss bank UBS, while the dollar, commodity markets and U.S. bond yields steadied.   “I think in the last few days we have had a reality check,” fund management group Hermes’ chief economist, Neil Williams, said. “The world is certainly not a happy place at the moment but it hasn’t got that much worse in recent weeks.”   “I’m expecting the Fed to re-assert its dovishness, they haven’t come this far including six years of QE (quantitative easing) to end it abruptly and leap towards a rate hike.”   London’s FTSE, Germany’s DAX and France’s CAC were up 0.5, 1.2 and 0.4 percent respectively and the euro, the pound and benchmark German government bonds all traded around recent levels.   Gold also recovered its footing after falling to its lowest in nearly two weeks, while emerging market stocks, which are also seen as vulnerable from reduced U.S. and global stimulus, rose 0.7 percent as hopes of more reforms of state-owned business saw Chinese stocks jump 2 percent.   CROWN SLIPS   Sweden’s crown slid to a four-year low against the dollar and a four-month trough against the euro after the country’s central bank, the Riksbank, surprised markets with a cut in interest rates to zero.   Most analysts had forecast that the bank would lower its main interest rate, the repo rate, to 0.1 percent from 0.25 percent to fight the risk of deflation. But it went a step further and forecast an even lower rate path for the future.   “Reading between the lines, it looks like Riksbank will keep rates low… This will weigh on the Swedish crown, with most losses likely to come against the dollar,” SEB’s chief currency strategist in Stockholm, Carl Hammer, said.   In Asia, MSCI’s broadest index of Asia-Pacific shares outside Japan added about 0.4 percent but Japan’s Nikkei dropped 0.4 percent after disappointing results from Canon offset positive retail sales data.   In the United States, data on Monday had been far from encouraging.   Services sector activity slowed in October to a six-month low, while manufacturing output in Texas decreased, providing more evidence that the Fed is likely to take things slowly in the coming months.   The dollar index, which tracks the U.S. unit against six major rivals, inched up about 0.15 percent in Europe to 85.629 as early Wall Street futures prices pointed to a solid 0.4-0.5 gain for stocks later.   Among commodities, U.S. crude was flat at $81.04 per barrel after dropping as low as $79.44 on Monday, its lowest level since June 2012, after Goldman Sachs cut price forecasts.   Brent crude shed 0.2 percent to $85.65, as concerns about weak global demand and ample supply kept a cloud over the market though growth-attuned metals — copper, nickel and aluminium — continued their recent rebound.   Any reference to Credence Independent Advisors in this material shall include Credence Ltd. and its subsidiaries.   This material does not constitute an offer or invitation to anyone in any jurisdiction to invest in any Credence Ltd. product or use any Credence Ltd. services where such offer or invitation is not lawful, or in which the person making such offer or invitation is not qualified to do so, nor has it been prepared in connection with any such offer or invitation.

New computers list of order of important things to do and the order to do them

Nov 21, 2014

1 Vote

Status: New

This idea could be applied to a number of different activities, but should be included in PAPER form or as an intro spash screen on every computer... "Excited about your new computer?  We know you want to jump right in, but these are extremely important things you should do RIGHT AWAY, and in this order..."  I honestly don't know what the steps should be, but the average car manual does a better job of telling you how to break in an engine, and what the maintenance schedule should be. These all have to be done, but in what sequence?  Set up password, connect to internet, set up security, make back-up, system image, boot media, etc.  Buying a computer is very confusing and stressful without the need to be.   I have repasted my cpu, vacuumed the ports, updated drivers sporadically and randomly, stumbling along spending hours finding this basic and real world information on the internet.  The vast majority of us are not techincal gurus, and hate not having it made clear what we are supposed to do from the manufacturer.  Nine times out of 10 I end up looking at some 15 year old kid's You Tube Video to figure this stuff out.

Venue 11 Pro Dock Cable

Nov 20, 2014

2 Votes

Status: New

It would be nice to use our Venue Pros as both a desktop and a tablet at the same time.  I often do WebEx where I need my machine docked yet I want to take notes.  With the tablet in the dock you really cannot use the stylus. Idea is to offer a dock cable.  One end plugs into the 40pin connector on the dock, the other to the connector on the bottom of the tablet.  This allows us to be docked and use the stylus at the same time.   Alternative idea is a dock that allow you to lay the tablet flat for writing or upright as a monitor.

Incorporate printer inside laptop screen

Nov 15, 2014

2 Votes

Status: Acknowledged

Revolutionize the industry and corner the market by incorporating a printer in the laptop screen. Patent it and every other competitor would owe you a royalty when they build theirs. There is no such device currently on the market and if you had a choice wouldn't you rather have a printer built in to your laptop instead of having to hook up to a seperate printer unit or download document to a jumpdrive and go find a printer? Of course you would and so would everyone else!

"Dell 4 Dummies" - a guide to the Dell Website

Nov 15, 2014

2 Votes

Status: Acknowledged

Dell For Dummies...   Use the "Dummies" Brand to teach Customers how to buy a Dell, but on your website.  Think, Dell Website Powered By "Dell for Dummies"   People not comfortable, or confident with learning about a PC, might just otherwise go to the store to ask a Sales Tech, but if they had a familiar Brand to help teach them, like the popular "Dummies" book series, it would make them feel more comfortable taking on the challenge of wading thru the Dell Website to customize their own computer, since they have a more familiar brand to teach them simply and "hold their hand" so to say, thru the process.   As I was reading thru your website, I was trying to follow the examples and information on the various parts of a computer, and thought how much easier it would be if I had the "Dummies" version of the same material to break down these technical topics to teach me.   As example, I was reading about processors, and the information was pretty general, and didn't give me a barometer of how to compare what my needs of a processor might be, i.e. this processor can handle basic games like Pac-man, versus the newest Halo, versus the Holodeck of the Starship Enterprise.   I saw a video where a young tech was comparing a processor to the engine of a car, and I must admit, I have a basic knowledge of cars, and limited knowledge of engines, and I thought...i'd hate to be the girl/guy who doesn't know anything about engines whatsoever (like Urbanites who spend their life in Public Transit, etc).   If "Dummies" were to attempt this, they might come up with the comparison of a house with electricity and various amenities, powering various objects...   -House/Processor A  is like your old school house with the lights powered for a few hours at night with the Wind Turbine outside, or Grandma's Sewing Machine for a few stitches. Processer A is like this, in that it runs basic functions, like on/off switches of old computer processors from computer's beginning days   - House B is like your nice 1980's house that powers all the kitchen utilities, the TV, lights, etc, or run Grandma's Sewing Machine to sew the Families Wardrobe. Processor B, switches the lights off/on, but does more with basic software programs like early Microsoft Word, and games like "Oregon Trail",    House C, is like your Modern Day house, with modern electronics, powering constant streaming from the internet, all digital devices, self automated lights and devices, etc, or runs Gradma's Sewing Machine Sweatshop where she has all the Grandkids sewing non-stop 24/7, 365. Processor C is very modern and can control all of your pixel intense games, processor intense, memory intense, stream internet TV easily, turn off the lights in the Garage at the same time, and hold 2 billion cat playing the piano photos, videos, or whatever.   Idea is to make the comparisons unisex, or more universal, but in a "Dummies" way.   The basic idea here is to give customer's a channel to feel more comfortable going into the Dell website to build a computer/buy a device, if they had a familiar Brand to guide and teach them thru the buying process in a simple and even humorous way.  Some other options might be, "Intel for Idiots", etc. Any ideas on how to improve this?
