To all our Clients: A Valentine Message and 3 corny jokes (sorry!)



1. Q: What did the boy octopus say to the girl octopus?
A: Can I hold your hand, hand, hand, hand, hand, hand, hand, hand, hand, hand?

2. Q: What did one snake say to the other snake?
A: Give me a little hug and a hiss, honey.

3. Knock, Knock,
Who’s there?


Olive Who?

Olive you!



Pipe Dream


Back to last week’s theme of the unintended consequences of smoking Marijuana, a smoker in search of a suitable place to fire up his bong, broke into a house in Texas earlier in the week. Upon entering the house it was only to  be confronted by…a tiger. Police were called and both the smoker and the tiger were taken into custody.


An early start for SGM-FX’s very own Charles M.Porter who once again took to the airwaves on TalkRadio first thing this morning trying to make some sense out of the newspaper headlines of the day with pundit James Max.


Markets are phlegmatic in fact actually positive about global events in the past 24hrs and also Charles being on the radio.


FTSE closed at 7190 Dow at 25543. Oil WTI at $54. 


Last but not least for all those of you casting around to buy a suitable present for your significant other: 


Victoria’s Secret despite struggling to preserve sales is optimistically offering an embroidered kimono for $490…that is if you are concerned at looking cheap having already rejected the $350 leather bustier! 


The SGM-FX team, even as you are reading this, are stress testing both of these pacy outfits and of course…as ever the latest Brexit developments as they unfold today in Parliament!

Happy Valentines!
