The Owl’s Indicators

May 7th, 2015

The Owl is a believer in the wisdom of crowds being superior to  pundits like himself when it come to predicting future political events. Experience has taught him that markets invariably assess the probabilities better than he does. Hence the Owl Indicators published regularly on this website based on what the markets are telling us.
