The announcement by ECB president Mario Draghi that the central bank will purchase €60bn per month of debt from euro-zone governments, agencies and institutions for at least the 18 months from March 2015 went "beyond market expectations" and the bank's own forecasts and should therefore be viewed as a "positive surprise", Morgan Stanley said.
After last week's article about determining the ‘moneyness’ of buy call options, you should be comfortable with that concept. I will now introduce you to the power of buy put options and their ‘moneyness’. “Power of buy Put options”, you are thinking? Why, Yes!

Regular readers will know I tend to mainly invest in US listed stocks however I do also have a few UK listed holdings two of which I have held for over 14 years and made a tidy profit.
