Les marchés des produits de base Le consensus de São Paulo a été adopté à la onzième conférence quadriennale de la CNUCED (XI) qui s'est tenue au Brésil en juin 2004. Il complète efficacement le plan d'action de Bangkok pour former une base solide dans l'orientation à suivre jusqu'à la douzième sessions de la CNUCED en 2008. Dans ce cadre, le consensus de São Paolo Consensus par. 74 a reconnu, inter alia, que « Les suggestions figurant dans le rapport de la Réunion de personnalités sur les questions relatives aux produits de base et les résultats du débat à ce sujet tenu lors de la cinquantième session du Conseil du commerce et du développement et de l'examen du rapport par l'Assemblée générale devraient être sérieusement pris en considération. Les projets relatifs à la mise en valeur de produits de base - en particulier les projets axés sur le marché - et leur préparation au titre du deuxième compte du Fonds commun pour les produits de base devraient bénéficier d'un appui accru.»

Clearing house (finance) Once a trade has been executed by two counterparties either on an exchange, or in the OTC markets, the trade can be handed over to a clearing house, which then steps between the two original traders' clearing firms and assumes the legal counterparty risk for the trade. This process of transferring the trade title to the clearing house is called novation. It can take fractions of seconds in highly liquid futures markets; or days, or even weeks in some OTC markets. As the clearing house concentrates the risk of settlement failures into itself and is able to isolate the effects of a failure of a market participant, it also needs to be properly managed and well-capitalized[1] in order to ensure its survival in the event of a significant adverse event, such as a large clearing firm defaulting or a market crash. Many clearing house guarantee funds are capitalized with collateral from its clearing firms. The central counterparty is responsible for: Market monitoring

Comprendre le marché de l’Or par F.Drouin Goldbroker Qui êtes-vous ? pouvez-vous présenter votre entreprise ? Bonjour. Je suis entrepreneur et investisseur français. J’analyse et m’intéresse au marché des métaux précieux depuis 2008. Goldbroker.com permet d’éliminer toute exposition au risque de contrepartie propre à la majorité des investissements proposés à l’heure actuelle. Vous parlez de sortir du système bancaire ; pouvez-vous expliquer comment ? Tout simplement en détenant de l’or/argent physique stocké en dehors du système bancaire. On parle aujourd’hui de pénurie d’or ; avez-vous des difficultés pour vous approvisionner ? Non, pas pour le moment. Quelle est votre réaction par rapport aux déclarations de la Fed et d’autres qui prétendent que l’or ne vaut rien (et qui se précipitent pour en acheter) ? Si l’or ne vaut rien, pourquoi toutes les banques centrales en possèdent-elles ? La Fed joue son rôle de protection d’un système monétaire de monnaie fiduciaire non convertible. www.goldbroker.com

How To Make Money in Your Spare Time Doing Simple Online Tasks | Zero 2 Hero via: Lifehacker Many “online jobs” promising quick riches and little effort are really scams. While the tasks below won’t make you rich, they can earn you a little pocket money on the side—and these days that can make a big difference. Most of these online money making opportunities only require you have a computer, a decent internet connection, and some sort of marketable skill (or the ability to provide valuable consumer insight to marketers). You’ll be operating as a free agent and can choose when, where, and how much to participate. Sound too good to be true? Also beware: because specialized skills aren’t always required, you do have to be wary of scams. That out of the way, here are a few sources of legitimate online single-task jobs: Focus Group Participant: 20|20 Panel : Since 1986, 20|20 Research has been providing companies with qualitative research from focus groups. Artificial Artificial Intelligence: Amazon Mechanical Turk : Yeah, that’s a weird title.

Physlet Quantum Physics by Belloni, Christian, and Cox: Section 4.5 J. J. Thomson's experiment (Section 4.4) resulted in a value for e/m (the ratio of the charge of the electron to the mass of the electron), but it took the Millikan's oil drop experiment to determine the value of the charge on the electron. This animation is a virtual version of the Millikan's experiment.3 The experiment was based on balancing forces: the gravitational pull down on an oil drop and the electric force up on ionized particles. Below is a schematic of the apparatus. The sprayer releases ionized oil drops into the apparatus. In the animation, push the "spray" button to spray a group of drops into the virtual apparatus where it is as if you are looking through the microscope (the grid lines are separated by 0.1 mm). You can "catch" one of the particles by turning on the voltage and adjusting it (push the "On" button and move the slider). "Catch" a drop by adjusting the voltage so that it stays still, at least on average. qV/d = mg, (4.6) v = 2r2ρg/9η, (4.7)

Chris Powell LesUSA contrôle le prix des métaux précieux "Au regard de la manipulation continue sur les marchés-papier de l'or et de l'argent, j’ai décidé d’interviewer des personnalités du secteur des métaux précieux et de leur poser exactement les mêmes questions sur la manipulation des prix de l’or et de l’argent : Chris Powell (GATA), James Rickards et Jim Willie (Goldenjackass.com). Les investisseurs qui ont conscience de la manipulation des cours, se posent des questions importantes, je me suis concentré sur certaines qui vont droit au but. J’ai déjà expliqué, dans mon dernier Market Report, qu’il y a une déconnexion croissante entre les marchés « papier » et physique. Avec ces interviews, j’ai voulu partager les points de vue externes des analystes de renom qui reconnaissent que les prix « papier » de l’or et de l’argent sont manipulés depuis plusieurs années. Voici la première interview, avec Chris Powell, co-fondateur du Gold Anti-Trust Action Committee (GATA)." FDR : Qu’est-ce qui y mettra fin?
