Recently, Ian King has been in the news for discussing his thoughts on bond markets, and how they are once again viable. Bonds are growing in popularity over the stock market due to many factors. Such as Chairman of the Fed board Jerome Powell raising interest rates, and the fact that bonds pay dividends more frequently than stocks, and they are safer. A long-term investor would do well to add bonds to their portfolio, in addition to stock and cryptocurrency because of these reasons. King asks his readers to pay attention to quantitative easing or QE, and the effect that it has on the bond market. When the Fed was engaging in QE, the low interest rates made bonds unattractive investments when compared to stocks and other securities. When Ben Bernanke was running the Fed he wanted investors to spend more money, so he lowered the interest rates on bonds through the use of programs such as QE. Bernanke sought to force investors into the TINA philosophy, which means “there is no alternative”. Now however, Mr. Ian King has come up with a new acronym to describe the current market, BAAAA, or “bonds are an alternative again “.
Due to the schemes and machinations by large institutions such as the Fed, in addition to his feelings about making people who are already rich richer, Ian King eventually sought to remove himself from Wall Street and become a venture investor. This puts in in close proximity to newer investment such as cryptocurrencies. King is very excited about this new market and all the opportunities that have been coming as a result of it. He is so excited that he created a newsletter, the Crypto Profit Trader.
