Sell shares of PZ Cussons, Danny Fortson recommended in the Sunday Times. The maker of Imperial Leather soap has been hit by economic problems in Nigeria, its biggest market, and pressure applied to suppliers by the UK supermarkets. Cussons' Chief Executive Alex Kanellis will struggle to meet forecasts for this year, the Inside the City columnist said. Cheaper oil will mean more money in most of the world's consumers' pockets but Cussons will face further problems in Nigeria, which is also grappling with an insurgency. Cussons has steered itself admirably but more pain is in store.

A multi-strategy note from analysts at Morgan Stanley has outlined the implications for the markets after the European Central Bank’s announcement of quantitative easing.
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!
Think of how great it would have been to open a buy put option trade before the Swiss National Bank announcement in mid-January, which created huge swings in various currency markets. (If you need reminding, here's my earlier article on put and call options.)
In 1979, legendary trader and technical analyst J. Welles Wilder developed the Average Directional Index (ADX), and said on several occasions that he believes it is the most powerful tool a trader can use.
Whether you agree with him or not depends on whether you’re a fan of trend-trading, but there’s no disputing that the ADX is a permanent fixture in a trader’s toolbox, and can be relied upon to answer the following question: ‘how strong is this trend?’
With 2015 starting off with wild market swings here’s a stock which I believe will hold up and stands to have another good year.
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.
