July 29, 2016 | Optimism for August Financial Markets

Bob Hoye has been in investment business for some 50 years, making him one of the more experienced researchers. His historical work has been thorough providing the first recognition of the fascinating transition from speculation in commodities to speculation in financial assets. It was controversial when Bob observed that “No matter how much the Fed prints, stocks will outperform commodities”. In January 2000, the research team concluded that the Dot-Com Bubble would peak in March 2000. In early 2007, the team outlined that the credit markets would reverse in May-June 2007. They did and the stock market followed. The latest was the call in early October for the Bitcoin Bubble to complete in December. Bob’s essays and speeches on political change and on actual climate change have been widely circulated.

    Hi Bob, can you please comment about the new BC property purchase Tax on foreign buying of real estate in Vancouver . Would you agree this is a new version of a Chinese head tax ?Also, comments by BC Finance Minister’s that he doesn’t care about the negative affects. Would you agree this is an aggressive rate of 15% and has made a negative mark on investment in all of Canada. Will this retroactive tax be the first nail in the liberal coffin come the next election. I am born in Vancouver to Immigrant parents and ashamed of this excessive tax and its implementation The next election I rather vote for Donald Trump not my long-serving liberals.

    Bob, If any Liberals are listening out there, you have time to do the right thing and kibosh this tax. The solution could be something simple like bring back the HST that applied to all new homes or a more popular solution, an additional luxury Property Purchase Tax of 3%, on all homes over 1 million dollars in BC
