Insights update

Insights is a bit later than usual this week as we are working on a special announcement.

Insights: Running on a full tank of crude

The INK Canadian Insider Index which tracks mid-cap-oriented stocks has been a top performer so far this year. Oil patch stocks have been driving the index higher. Can the good times continue?

Meanwhile, our insider of the week is a true believer. All this and more in the latest free Insights newsletter.

Insights: Dot plots will not crush the oil price

The Fed cannot stand by the sidelines if it wants to cool inflation

Insights: As bitcoin backtracks, bullion makes a comeback

As bitcoin tumbles, one of the world's biggest gold miners just made a multi-year high. However, despite the crypto crash, the case for DeFi remains compelling.

Insights: Going copper crazy while the DOGE master bites bitcoin

Elon Musk sent shockwaves through the cryptocurrency community last week with news that Tesla (TSLA) will no longer accept bitcoin for payment until mining becomes more sustainable. In the latest Insights, we explain how this could benefit other crytocurrencies including dogecoin. Meanwhile, copper stocks are grabbing our attention as a way to play Raoul Pal's Exponential Age theme.

Insights: First overcome Amazon's cloud, then conquer the Cosmos

The age of exponential opportunity is here and the stakes are high.

In this week's Insights, we discuss the possibilities for Dfinity's recently launched decentralized network, The Internet Computer (TIC), which aims to challenge Amazon's cloud computing business.

Insights: Betting against the favourite
