Some basics covered by Bill & Ron:
Why options?:
Cost efficiency,Limited Loss,Better ROI,Safe alternative to shorting stock etc.
Bill explained in simple terms what a call or put option is giving analogy of Put option equating with Car Insurance which is easy to understand! An option gives the right to buy/sell a given stock/share at a fixed price over a given period of time! He also spoke of Intrinsic value,time value of money and called it 'Moneyness'! Simple to remember formula - Premium = Intrinsic vaue+ Time value. In options what is important ? Its finding opportunities and applying strategies!
And then came the Tornedo - Bull Speaker Ron explaining about himself and giving an excellent talk on finding opportunities and applying strategies in options trading,talking about synthetic options, talking on "Stock Replacement Strategy" /Stock Replacement Rollup.

ZAK Salaam India Expo 2007 Singapore

Its India in Singapore!
The ZAK Salaam India Expo 2007 starting 15Th August 2007 till 19Th August 2007 happened at Singapore.
Its a co-ordinated efforts from various forums/business houses/govt agencies which has resulted in this expo 2007.

The last year 2006 expo of India Singapore was comparatively a smaller event compared to this ZAK Salaam India Expo 2007.

Very Well crafted Stall of MOFPI

The different wings of the Indian organizations although co-ordinated well for this expo as a freelance observer we have observed certain areas where niceties which may well improve these sort of shows of India Expo.

As it goes this is the expo which show cases the India the very main thing which is missing in the expo organizers or the shops is the Smile on their lips! Great Business houses. Less of Smiles. Or is it the Grim faces should represent India? No idea. So its a good idea the expo stall exhibitors are trained in Smile Exercises! When you enquire a curt and terse reply is the outcome! Not that all are like that ! But being an expo and having seen various expos in this Singapore a Broad Smile and a easy and expandable gentleness can go a long way in the expo of India success.

The lanes between the shops are narrow thus having crumpled walking place for the visitors. Hope the lanes can be widened better.

Singapore is known for price tags display clearly and discounts or buy two get one free slogans in the market place. Any small market you go can you can find this extensively and unfortunately the EXPO OF INDIA lacks this squarely!! A very few shops that show the price tags! And most of them lack the techniques. Hope these expo owners take trip to downtown markets and see the way the markets work. To us a market and an expo does not have a large difference. Each one showcases its talent. Hope the India Expo can expect to learn better.

Crowd Puller- Eatery Stalls As usual

As usual any expo you go which are the places mostly crowded ? Its Eatery stalls. And India Expo is no exception. Well aligned Eatery malls have stolen the show with variety of India food and it appears they are the people who would have fared in the income generation there the best! (Is it correct organizers?)

Ramakrishna Mission Stall Pulls great crowd with its lovely children Books and Books on Yoga, Spirituality and Swami Vivekananda

The Govt bodies shops are lacklustre shops with no enthusiasm or attractions. Hope they can improve.
Singapore is a Tourism country! And to Singapore itself Tamil Nadu Tourism allures with a wide stall of TamilNadu Tourism!

So Salaam India 2007! Well Done organizers ! Have them organized in better and better way as the years go!!

Beautiful Tanjore Drops! Well crafted art pieces at Singapore India Expo 2007!

Tracking Gotheborg Chennai at Marina

As said earlier the Beautiful Singapore finally tracked the Gotheborg!

Gotheborg the Swedish ship of 18th Century remake arrived at Chennai on Tuesday 30th January 2007!

Unlike the proximity at which the ship could be viewed from the Harbour Front in Singapore, currently Gotheborg is anchored some 1/2 km from the beach of Chennai.

The Swedish ship Gotheborg was welcomed by Swedish Embassy with lighting of crackers at the Marina to the amusement of the Beach goers who were taken by surprise when the ship was seen at Bay of Bengal!

It was a delight of course see such a massive old fashioned ship in the current era!

However as observed neither the media nor the business community of Madras utilized the opportunity to enhance their business opportunities in comparison to the way the event was highlighted in Singapore media and business circles and the innovative inspiration in which vivo city or Harbour Front promoted the event attracting great gathering thereby increasing their great business as well.

Its expected to be there at Chennai for about 10 days. Surprisingly there was no news of Cine Actress Revathi abode the ship news appearing in the India Media diaspora !

The tamil paper of Singapore Thamiz Murasu has come out with an article from Revathi last week here in Singapore - Experience abode Gotheborg!

You may read further in The Hindu for more on Gotheborg from Chennai
