LJM Developments CEO, Liaquat Mian, bullish on US and Canadian markets for 2014/15

World economies and global real-estate to follow suit with sustained growth of North American markets

Burlington, ON, December 30, 2013 – CEO, Liaquat Mian, puts the DOW Jones Industrial Average at 20,000 by the end of 2015 and foresees positive performance by blue chip stocks through 2014.

“I am bullish on North American stock markets as there is currently a lot of liquidity and room for blue-chip share price growth” says Mian. He argues that the stock market comeback in the US is just beginning with sizeable movements projected in most blue-chip stocks as their P/E ratios are still quite cheap, prompting many private and institutional investors to make strategic moves back into certain industries. In particular, industries projected to benefit from this movement, will be Technology, Oil and Gas, Banks and Financial services.

Mian believes there will be further growth in global markets in the next 24 months as the European Union and other western nations follow suit with stimulus spending. It is widely believed that America’s early movement to provide during the economic meltdown of 2008-09 led to the US economy’s modestly paced recovery, while other major financial centers in Europe and abroad still lag behind. Yet as the rest of the western nations further implement similar packages, there is room for growth in those markets.

On the real-estate sector, Mr. Mian touts “Canadian real estate prices will stabilize and post modest gains over the next 24 months. The US real estate market will have steady growth in the next 4 to 5 years”. and these low rates are projected to remain steady for the next 3 to 4 years. According to Mian, the Canadian real estate market is considerably cheaper than other major Western nations such as the US, Australia, Germany, England and France.

“Consider the price differences between a flat in London and a condo in Toronto and the saving and purchasing power is evident” he argues. Mian believes the real-estate market in Canada will remain strong over the next 2 years with the GTA, Calgary, Edmonton, and Montréal all in growth patterns.

Other major real estate markets have seen some easing from the low dollar days and signs of growth are starting to emerge. where certain high-profile markets in major urban centers such as New York and Miami are starting to see growth. although at a slower pace than the US. The EU in general was much slower to act on stimulus spending but should be completely out of recession within 12 to 18 months, predicts Mian.

Mian also emphasized that “part of the comeback of the US economy has been through the government’s determination in a dogged Currency War that is still transpiring to this day”. According to Mian, the US has made it a mandate to keep the dollar somewhat devalued for a number of reasons, but chief among them is to keep foreign investment flowing into the US. These low interest rates combined with a lower valued US dollar has also helped fund debt payments. Without these measures, the economy of the US would face serious financial difficulties, believes Mian. The silent ‘currency war’ has caused some spin off activity in driving gold and silver down in price as well. Mian further emphasized that diplomacy with Iran will bring down the price of oil to $80-$85 a barrel within the next few months putting pressure on the resource-driven Canadian economy – though he argues these effects to be negligible. A notable offshoot of low oil prices according to Mian is that “lower oil prices provide stability in third world countries and increase the quality of living while decreasing unrest”. It is felt among many nations that the need for stabilization, regulation and legislation on pricing, on quality of life goods, such as oil and gas, wheat, rice and other staples will help control price imbalances and control Third World unrest.

Companies Must Restructure Management Systems to Achieve Greater Efficiency, Flexibility and Competitiveness

In times of crisis, adopting the Business Process Management (BPM) model can transform this delicate and momentous situation into a great opportunity for the future.

Woburn, MA, December 27, 2013 – AURA (www.auraportal.com), a global provider of Business Process Management (BPM) software, has announced that, during the BPM Eastern Europe Summit held in Bucharest on November 21, where AuraPortal was presented the award for Best BPM Vendor in Eastern Europe, an interview was conducted with the Vice President of the company and speaker at the event, Pablo Trilles.

AuraPortal has been distinguished with great advantage over its competitors by Ovum in its Decision Matrix report and by other renowned analyst firms.

Here are some of the most noteworthy points:

Q. Given the difficulties that companies are experiencing to overcome the crisis which, as we are seeing, highlights the weaknesses of the current economical model, what need do they have to adopt the Business Process Management model?

A. In good economic times all companies do well, but it is in times of crisis that the businesses of the future are truly consolidated. With the help of a BPM (Business Process Management) Suite, this delicate and momentous situation can be transformed into a great opportunity for the future, giving the company a tool that eases adaption and increases its resilience in dealing with the ongoing market changes.

Q. But right now companies need to confront the depressed market, the credit crunch and many other problems in addition to improving their management.

A. Without a doubt these problems exist but they are out of their hands; only management improvement is within their control. They need to be prepared to increase efficiency, flexibility and competitiveness, which can be achieved through the correct implementation of a BPMS.

Q. Does a BPMS project require a large investment?

A. Not at all. With AuraPortal Cloud projects of any size can be undertaken with no initial outlay for infrastructure or programming, and can be implemented almost immediately.

Q. You keep mentioning the BPMS tool. Is it possible to manage processes without the help of a tool?

A. BPM implementation would not be efficient without a tool to ensure that all activities from the different company departments and areas are performed correctly, at the right time and by the appropriate people. I recommend that you watch the video titled Short Call: How most companies work. I’m sure you’ll be able to relate to how most companies work and how they can be improved.

Edgar Perez’s Literary Sensation Knightmare on Wall Street Best Reviewed Kindle Book on Amazon in 2013

Edgar Perez, Author, The Speed Traders, and Course Director, The Speed Traders Workshop, Introduces Knightmare on Wall Street, The Rise and Fall of Knight Capital and the Biggest Risk for Financial Markets, a Behind-the-scenes Look at Knight Capital’s 17 years of Tumultuous Existence as an Independent 盛兴彩票网.

New York, NY, USA (December 26, 2013) — Knightmare on Wall Street, The Rise and Fall of Knight Capital and the Biggest Risk for Financial Markets, the fascinating account of what it took to elevate Knight Capital to the cusp of the retail investing revolution of the late 1990s, to struggle through booms and busts, and to bring the firm down, is now the most favorably reviewed Kindle edition book on Amazon in 2013, with an average rating of 5 out of five stars.

As reviewed by Seeking Alpha’s Sanjeev Sharma, the plot of Knightmare on Wall Street (), revolves around the story of one large financial firm, Knight Capital Group. The author gives the details of firm’s operations and depicts the efforts and ambitions driving the firm’s success. He gives a minute by minute detail of the famous incident and explains the reasons and events behind it.

“The company was nearly bankrupt after it gave mistaken U.S. equity orders due to an improperly installed software that later malfunctioned. The erroneous trading caused volume to dramatically spike and prices to wrongly change in more than a hundred securities listed on the U.S. stock exchanges. Knight could avoid bankruptcy as six Wall Street firms, GETCO, Blackstone, Jefferies, Stephens, Stifel Financial and TD Ameritrade, provided a capital infusion for its solvency after the mistake. The author’s style is imaginative, and keeps the reader’s interest alive throughout the book. It will surely be interesting and useful, particularly for those who follow or are interested in the world of finance. I think the book is a great read, and would recommend it.”

The firm, founded by Kenneth Pasternak and Walter Raquet in 1995, had seen its fortunes change as U.S. regulators made a series of changes in the structure of financial markets and computers were progressively expanding their share of trading. The Flash Crash, the infamous 1,000 point drop of the DJIA on May 6, 2010 (the largest one-day point decline in history), illustrated how market structure problems could almost instantaneously cascade from one market participant to the rest.

Thomas Joyce, CEO of Knight Capital since 2002 and an unapologetic advocate of electronic trading, had been scornful of those companies that struggled to keep up with ever-changing stock markets. So it was certainly shocking that at 9:30 A.M. on August 1, 2012, right after the markets opened for the day, Knight Capital began issuing an unprecedented number of erroneous orders into the market, due to an error in installing new software. No rogue trader or regulatory change; operational risk was passing the bill to Knight Capital and becoming the biggest risk in the financial markets.

Knight Capital announced later a staggering loss of $440 million. What followed after this shocking announcement were several rounds of desperate conversations with a number of vulture players who had smelled opportunity and were readying themselves to pick up bargain-priced pieces. On August 6, 2012, Joyce confirmed that Knight Capital had struck a deal with Jefferies, TD Ameritrade, Blackstone, GETCO, Stephens, and Stifel Financial, staving off collapse days after the trading mishap.

While Knight Capital was back in the game, its limping recovery quickly prompted hungry competitors to bid for the entire company. On December 19, 2012, the board decided to accept an acquisition proposal from GETCO rather than Virtu Financial. For GETCO, acquiring Knight Capital represented a gigantic fast forward step. For Knight Capital, it was the end of its wild ride as an independent entity.

For the Last-Minute Shoppers, Ecotech Institute Recommends 10 Eco-Friendly Gifts for the Holidays

Consider Plants, E-Books and sx5566盛兴彩票网made Gifts this Season

Denver, CO, December 23, 2013 — ‘Tis the season for giving, and , the only college in the U.S. solely focused on renewable energy education and sustainable energy training, has released a list of ten eco-friendly gift ideas.

“While the holiday season is often used as an excuse for over-consumption, there are a great deal of excellent ways to embrace sustainable giving,” said Kyle Crider, Ecotech Institute’s Program Chair and Manager of Environmental Operations. “Whether you are creating your own wish list or struggling with what to give this year, here are some ideas that are fun to give and receive, with the added bonus of feeling like you’ve done something good for the environment.”

1. Solar and hand chargers. The busiest people on your list will love a charger they can use while on the go! Whether for an emergency or on the beach, this gift is sure to be used.

2. Heirloom plants and seeds. For the green thumb in your life, encouraging gardening and time with dirt can be a simple, thoughtful and fruitful gift.

3. Microloans to fight poverty. Microloans are great gifts to give in honor of someone. These loans help entrepreneurs and small businesses that don’t have access to traditional banking sources.

4. Donation to a sustainable charity. For the altruistic friend or family member, find an organization that aligns with their beliefs and make a donation in their name. See if there is a downloadable certificate online to put in their stocking.

5. Re-gift and consignment gifts. Americans in particular often use and discard items while they still have much life left. Gently used and hip vintage items are available around every corner at consignment and secondhand stores.

6. eBooks. In the age of the iPad and tablet, almost everyone has a way to read eBooks. Think about giving a gift card to an online bookstore – an easy, practical and always appreciated gift!

7. Subscription to local, organic farm-to-table program. Opportunities like this vary across the countrysx5566盛兴彩票网, but the gift of fresh, local food is sustainable, delicious and much appreciated by farmers.

8. Make, rather than purchase, your gift. This idea is not just for kindergartners or the Pinterest-obsessed (although don’t discount the gifts from those groups). Whether a handmade card or a 盛兴彩票网made craft, recipients are always touched by the effort put forth.

9. An energy kit with LED light bulbs and rechargeable batteries. Practical and eco-conscious, this gift offers less last-minute trips to the store and renewable energy for months to come.

10. Spend time, not money. As what could be considered the golden rule of sustainable giving, offer your time and energy instead of purchased goods. Whether you plan special time with friends and family at the park or you gather a group to plant trees, outdoor playtime, or earth-friendly volunteer work, these activities can be a gift for everyone.

“However you celebrate the holidays, be kind to each other and the Earth, they will thank you for it!” added Crider.

Knightmare on Wall Street Said to Scare Bitcoin Digital Currency Market From $1000 to 10 in 2013

Edgar Perez, Author, The Speed Traders, and Course Director, The Speed Traders Workshop, Introduces Knightmare on Wall Street, The Rise and Fall of Knight Capital and the Biggest Risk for Financial Markets, a Behind-the-scenes Look at Knight Capital’s 17 years of Tumultuous Existence as an Independent 盛兴彩票网.

New York, NY, USA (December 24, 2013) — As indicated by The New York Times’ Nick Bilton, bitcoin, the digital currency that has captured attention around the world, exploded. By November, it had skyrocketed from a fraction of a penny to $1,242, roughly the price of an ounce of gold. It has been a wild, wild ride: up and down, down and up. Everyone seems to be wondering what this crazy new thing might mean. The end of government control over money? The start of an international crypto-currency? Is Knightmare on Wall Street coming for this market?

Bitcoins are mined according to a set of algorithms. Essentially, computers solve some math problems and generate bitcoins. The coins are stored in, and traded among, digital wallets. People can buy real things with them, at least from people who accept them, or, as many people seem to be doing, sit on them in hopes the price will keep rising. Per the algorithms, mining bitcoins becomes more difficult over time. Only about 21 million of them can ever be created – which is why so many people have been chasing after them. Bitcoins are now accepted as payment at almost a thousand retail outlets and websites, including OKCupid, Reddit, and Pizza Rodi in Montreal. But what has really grabbed attention is how volatile the price has been. The value has gyrated wildly. In the last month alone, the bitcoin market capitalization has swung between $14 billion and $7 billion.

However, Mark Williams of Boston University has insisted that the value of a Bitcoin will pop, falling as low $10 next year. Others say it is all just another bubble. Is the bitcoin market reaty to experience its own version of a Knightmare on Wall Street? This is the new book by Edgar Perez, former McKinsey consultant and celebrated author of The Speed Traders, now available in his website with immediate shipping now available at .

Knightmare on Wall Street provides a fascinating account of what it took to elevate the firm to the cusp of the retail investing revolution of the late 1990s, to struggle through booms and busts, and to bring the firm down, to end up ultimately being ignominiously bought up by a competitor. Readers will discover a thrilling minute-by-minute account of the terrifying hours following Knight Capital’s August 1, 2012 trading debacle, with news-breaking research regarding the firm’s 17 years of tumultuous existence as an independent company.

At 9:30 A.M. on August 1, 2012, right after the markets opened for the day, Knight Capital began issuing an unprecedented number of erroneous orders into the market, due to an error in installing new software. Knight Capital announced later a staggering loss of $440 million. What followed after this shocking announcement were several rounds of desperate conversations with a number of vulture players who had smelled opportunity and were readying themselves to pick up bargain-priced pieces. On August 6, 2012, Joyce confirmed that Knight Capital had struck a deal with Jefferies, TD Ameritrade, Blackstone, GETCO, Stephens, and Stifel Financial, staving off collapse days after the trading mishap.

Perez is widely regarded as the preeminent global expert in the specialized area of high-frequency trading. He is author of The Speed Traders, An Insider’s Look at the New High-Frequency Trading Phenomenon That is Transforming the Investing World, published in English by McGraw-Hill Inc.
