The Financial Outlook for Personal Investors: The 50th anniversary of the demise of Bretton Woods
Russ Mould, Investment Director of A J Bell, and a history buff, considers similarities between today's financial environment and the closing of the gold window by President Nixon in 1971, since when the dollar has lost 85% of its purchasing power. He explains why it might make sense to buy toys early for Christmas and why investors might want to pay attention to the level of margin debt in the United States (one of the frothy areas of the market), as it has just dipped for the first time since February 2020.

The Financial Outlook for Personal Investors: Is the monetary punch bowl being withdrawn a little?
Russ Mould, Investment Director of A J Bell, looks at the ECB announcement which includes a slowing down of the rate at which it purchases bonds. Although the Fed is pressing on regardless, there are many instances of other central banks tapping the brake pedal gently. Explaining the confiscatory nature of inflation, he says that investors who disagree with the BoE and Fed that inflation is transitory should shun bonds, keep some cash to hand and look at value stocks and companies with branded pricing power.

Gadgets & Gizmos: Zero Emission Cars
As Simon Rose takes a well-earned break, we re-visit a programme first broadcast in March 2017 when Share Radio was a national DAB station. From April 2017, zero emission cars have been the only vehicles exempt from road tax. Despite growing interest and increasing pressure to move away from polluting vehicles many were still reluctant to make the jump. So just what are zero emissions cars and what should you consider when making the switch from petrol?

The Financial Outlook for Personal Investors: Sainsbury's & Supermarkets and Paypal & Cryptocurrencies
Laith Khalaf, head of investment analysis at A J Bell, looks at the rumours of a bid for Sainsbury's. In the light of the bidding for rival supermarket chain Morrison's, he asks whether private investors should rethink their attitude towards the sector. He also looks at a new service from Paypal allowing UK consumers to trade and hold cryptocurrencies. With a potential (not yet offered in Britain) to process crypto transactions between consumers, he wonders if such a transactional facility is any more than just a sales gimmick.
