The currency that is used  is known as bitcoin, but it does not possess any physical form. Bitcoin has now become a widely used currency, especially in China, the economic powerhouse.

Boeing share price soaring, but turbulence lies ahead

Boeing’s (BA) share price has risen an impressive 66% compared to this time last year, boosted by enthusiasm in the airline and defence markets.

Patience may pay off for General Electric traders

Many analysts expect General Electric (GE) to exceed their profit expectations when they post their third quarter earnings report on October 20, as it has done in eight of the last nine quarters.
