It is a busy Thursday (as usual). I still remain rather grumpy about the recent decision from the CEO of BT Group (BT.A) to exit the business, given he has still got loads of his promised job to do.

So why are the shares, at 563p, currently approaching 16% down?…
The United States has a President that made his fortune on the back of debt, but somehow the market thinks Trump will govern in a tea-party-hard-money fashion. Nothing could be further from the truth.
