in 10 years time, tiger would have been equipped with advance generative ai capability that can help time the market and remind retail investor to invest or take profit. it will be able to provide a comprehensive analysis of the stock like a pro. at the same time, Algo trading would have made advancements too. so it is a battle between machines. what do you think @Aqa  @Asphen  @BenjiFuji  @DiAngel  @Fenger1188  @GoodLife99  <

i hope one day i can truly rely on ai to deliver accurate search results, collate and present it in a concise manner like a personal assistant. for example, i make a query about traveling to Chongqing and it will list me the top 10 places to visit along with pictures and videos, tips on how to get there; where to stay; things to take note, and the related blog it got results from. the search results must have breath and depth like a human would do. currently, what i get is breath but not depth, eg when i get there i usually get unwanted surprises.

Here are some recent developments related to oil prices: Oil extended gains as another attack on a ship in the Red Sea added to heightened geopolitical tensions in the Middle East ahead of an OPEC+ meeting. Oil has climbed this year due to tensions across the Middle East and output cuts by the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries and its allies. OPEC+ is expected to roll over its production curbs into the second half of 2024. Oil prices rose on expectations that major producers will maintain production cuts at a meeting scheduled for Sunday. This comes as fuel consumption is expected to increase.  Oil prices rose by more than US$1 a barrel on the expectation that OPEC+ will maintain crude supply curbs at its June 2 meeting. A weaker US dollar also made the commodity more

The recent news articles suggest the following factors contributing to the elevated US inflation: Concerns about the Federal Reserve's ability to tackle inflation: The minutes of the Federal Reserve's rate-setting committee meeting revealed that policymakers were not confident that inflation was moving sustainably towards the target of 2%. The strong US economy and an uptick in inflation led to concerns that progress against rising prices had stalled. Excess dollar liquidity: According to TS Lombard's report, continued excess dollar liquidity is expected to keep prices rising faster, potentially settling around 3% instead of the Fed's 2% target. This scenario threatens bonds over the long term and could impact valuations, implying a higher terminal rate. Inflation expectations: Market anal

Based on recent news articles, the sentiment regarding oil prices is mixed. While some articles mention that oil prices have risen due to factors such as wildfires in Canada's oil sands and expectations of a drawdown in US inventories, other articles highlight that oil prices have declined to nine-week lows following disappointing inflation data and unchanged forecasts from OPEC. Overall, the outlook for oil prices remains uncertain and is influenced by various factors such as supply-demand dynamics, global economic indicators, and geopolitical events.

bad is good

The 2% inflation rate target is not arbitrary but rather a result of careful consideration and analysis by central banks and policymakers. It is based on economic theories and empirical evidence that suggest a moderate level of inflation can be beneficial for the economy. Here are a few reasons why the 2% inflation rate target is considered reasonable: Price Stability: A low and stable inflation rate helps maintain price stability in the economy. It allows businesses and consumers to make informed decisions without the uncertainty caused by rapidly changing prices. Economic Growth: A moderate level of inflation can stimulate economic growth by encouraging consumer spending and investment. It provides an incentive for individuals and businesses to spend and invest rather than hoard money. N

High interest rates can have both direct and indirect effects on the electric vehicle (EV) industry: Financing Costs: High interest rates increase the cost of borrowing for EV manufacturers, suppliers, and consumers. This can lead to higher financing costs for EV production, which may impact the profitability of manufacturers and increase the price of EVs for consumers. Higher prices can reduce demand and slow down the growth of the EV industry. Consumer Affordability: Higher interest rates can make it more expensive for consumers to finance the purchase of electric vehicles. This can reduce the affordability of EVs and discourage potential buyers from entering the market. As a result, the demand for EVs may decrease, affecting the sales and growth of the industry.

The 1-year loan prime rate (LPR), the benchmark for most corporate and household loans, was maintained at 3.45%. Meanwhile, the 5-year rate, a reference for property mortgages, was retained at 3.95% following a record reduction of 25bps in February. Both rates are at record lows, indicating that Beijing is continuing its attempt to spur an economic recovery following weak activity data in March due to headwinds from the property sector, lingering deflation risks, and fragile trade performance.  The loan prime rate is a reference interest rate used by banks in China to price new loans to their prime customers. It is set by a group of banks under the guidance of the People's Bank of China (PBOC). The loan prime rate is typically adjusted periodically based on market conditions and monet
