Introducing a new feature: Politics and financial markets

TPT broadens its scope


After looking at my web-log I have decided that it needs a slightly broader focus than just the political betting markets. I have decided to include a weekly column on how political events will effect the financial markets, starting with the bond and commodity markets. This is not simply the traditional summary of the week’s events in the markets but a deep political analysis in the style of the The Gartman Letter. Obviously, this is not a web-log or newsletter about the financial markets, and if this doesn’t work out I will abandon it, but it will be something to fill in the gaps when purely political news is a bit slack.
