IPOs (Initial Public Offerings):

An IPO occurs when a private company sells its stock to the public for the first time to raise capital or money.

The money raised from an IPO can be used for various purposes, such as paying down debt, investing in the company's long-term health, research and development, expanding into new product lines, or purchasing fixed assets.

During the IPO process, the equity shares of private investors

convert into publicly owned shares of the new entity, and early investors may sell their stock once the company's shares begin trading.

The chief benefit of an IPO is to help the company raise money and gain access to the capital markets, allowing for expansion and increasing credibility.

Splits (Stock Splits):

A stock split occurs when a company increases the number of its outstanding shares of stock to boost the stock's liquidity.

In a stock split, the number of shares outstanding increases by a specific multiple, but the total dollar value of all shares remains the same.

Companies often choose to split their stock to lower its trading price to a more comfortable range for most investors and increase the liquidity of trading in its shares.

For example, if a company decides to split its stock 2-for-1, the number of shares outstanding would double, while the share price would be halved.

Old shares

Old shares refer to the existing shares of a company before a stock split takes place. These are the shares that will be exchanged for the new shares resulting from the split.

New shares

New shares are the additional shares that are issued to existing shareholders as a result of a stock split. The number of new shares is determined by the split ratio, such as 2-for-1 or 3-for-2, where shareholders receive a certain number of new shares for each old share they own.

Interest rates in Great Britain and USA

Date: 8.3.2023

At my morning chart checks, one specific drop caught my interest – a drop in the value of GBPUSD. It was quite remarkable or unusual drop, so I thought to myself that something big had to happen. * Quick search on Investing provided me with necessary information. Yesterday’s press conference in US signalled, that they will have to raise interest rates more often than predicted, at least according to the Fed Chair Jerome Powell. And when this man says something, there will for sure be volatility on the markets. And it was just like that. But concerning this particular forex pair, there were also news from the UK, which showed that investors believe that interest rates will be higher for “only” 0,25 percentage point, and not 0,50 as it was first thought. However, for the actual increase, I will have to wait until 23rd of March, for when the hike in UK is scheduled.

I moved back to the chart, and I couldn’t get past this drop. And interestingly, it stopped in one of the support levels, that bounced the price back also in the beginning of January. But when I moved around with the cursor, the drop was not that explicit as it first seemed, as it was 2,09%. It fell from the point of 1,20625 to the current price at 1,18342. And this is exactly the price where Decembers/Januarys drops stopped and returned. Because the price looks like it can’t decide if it wants to continue with the fall, or it wants to go back up, I thought to myself that it would be smart idea to approach the trade with care. * And of course, I need more information regarding the currencies to make an easier decision.

I continued with the reading of article I have found. The interest rate hike in the UK is still not confirmed, while Jerome Powell made a signal that US will highly likely decide to do so. In theory, or in past it has shown that when given country decided to raise the rates, the value of its currency strengthened. * For me as a person, or daily spender, that is good. But for me as an investor, not so much. Or depends on what I want to invest into.

As everything was very confusing and unclear, I checked the economic calendar for today, as well as what technical indicators on investing say. As for economic events today, USA will release the non-farm employment change data, as well as Powell will testify again. Again, the volatility. But I am expecting positive news. Long term, the indicators say sell, while for very short term (5 minutes chart), indicators say long. And I am here for longer term, so I decided to open a position on short, in expectance of positive news from the US. [1]

Anticipating Apple's AI Revolution

With the Apple Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) just around the corner, my attention is sharply focused on what could be a landmark event for Apple and the tech industry at large. Scheduled from June 10 to June 14, this year's WWDC promises to unveil advancements across Apple's entire product line-up, including iOS, macOS, watchOS, and the intriguing introduction of visionOS. However, the buzz around potential artificial intelligence (AI) integrations has particularly piqued my interest, signalling a possible strategic pivot for Apple in a domain that's increasingly dominating tech conversations.

Anticipation of the Fed's decision on interest rates

For an investor who is intensely interested in developments in the US stock market, the weeks leading up to today's Federal Reserve meeting have been particularly interesting.
