Swiss Revival

The Swiss Market Index, the most important basket of Swiss blue-chips, is often considered a value-investment, not only for the traditional role of Switzerland as a safe-haven but also for the predominance of defensive companies in its basket, some of which are among the largest companies by market capitalization the world. Nevertheless, it is not so simple to link the aversion of investors to risk to the relative course of the Swiss stocks. When the investors look for safety, for example, the Swiss Franc is often the main beneficiary but a hard currency is not the best environment for global business and so is explained the relative weakness of the Swiss markets during the bearish trends of the euro against the Swiss franc.

Swiss medical residents spend more time with PC than patients

Medical residents at a Swiss teaching hospital spend almost half of their workday on the computer, which is approximately three times the amount of time they spend with patients, according to a Swiss study published in Annals of Internal Medicine. The researchers conducted a time and motion study to evaluate how residents spend their time during day and evening hospital shifts. From May to July 2015, they studied 36 Swiss internal medicine residents with an average of 29 months of postgraduate training.  Residents spent 52.4% of their time on activities indirectly related to patients compared to 28% of their time on activities directly related to patients during day shifts. On average, residents spend 1.7 hours per day with patients, compared with 5.2 hours using computers, and 13 minutes doing both.

Technical analysis : Gold remains above 1,235 level

The yellow metal traded rather flat on Friday morning, as it found support in the monthly R1, which is located at 1,237.68. The bullion retreated to that level after it stopped and reversed its surge in the second half of Thursday's trading session. Gold has two possible future scenarios. Either the bullion finds enough strength in the support level to rebound and approach the 1,245 level, or the yellow metal will fail at that and begin a move lower. A move lower would result in a fall to the weekly PP, which is located at 1,232.24.

Trump's border wall could become a cheaper fence

President Trump wants a wall along the border with Mexico, CNN has been told by multiple sources within the agencies involved in building, paying for and enforcing this barrier. President Trump has been looking at various blueprints with his advisers, a senior administration official told CNN. He could ultimately insist on a concrete wall stretching across the entire border, as he has promised. It would be a far bigger and a vastly more expensive project, and any plan would need to be sent to Congress for funding approval.
