Stock Market Tension That Could Be Cut With A Knife
Record-breaking shares sold by company insiders
In the US, stock market trading based on so-called “margin debt” has reached a new record. Margin debt is the amount of money that investors can borrow in their investment account to buy even more shares. Existing portfolios are then partly used as collateral for new investments. It is clear that, if a significant amount of borrowed money is invested, the risks on the stock market increase.
Stock market guru, Gary Shilling, foresees a heavy crash for stocks and cryptos with a lingering euphoria
Shilling, who correctly predicted previous crashes, has accused the Federal Reserve and the US Treasury of inflating stock prices by injecting unprecedented amounts of free money into the financial system. He also warns investors to not allow the current stock market madness to drive them into a frenzy.
Peace and High Returns In The Inflation Resistant Real Estate Market
Historically low offer boosts residential sales price by almost 15%
The housing market in the Netherlands remains unprecedentedly tight. This is evident from the Dutch Association of Estate Agents (NVM) housing market figures for the first quarter of 2021, with sharp price increments and increasing scarcity and overbids.
The average selling price of an existing home rose in the first quarter of 2021 to € 385,000. Compared to the first quarter of 2020, this is an increase of almost 15%. This has not happened in the last 20 years. Halfway through the first quarter of 2021, approximately 17,500 homes were for sale, 42% less compared to a year ago.
Investors buy a lot of packaged home rental mortgages
Mortgages from individuals buying homes for rent were widely bundled last year, packaged as bonds and resold to investors. According to De Nederlandsche Bank (DNB), this reflects the growth of the private rental market and the interest of major investors such as pension funds in the Dutch housing market. [ANP]

The Max Property Group Equity Round is now live! We have prepared a Series A equity round to keep up with the developments of the Max Crowdfund platform. The intention is to raise € 4.25 million, which will be used for the technical development of the platform and obtain regulatory approvals as it expands into new jurisdictions.
Starting at € 500, you can invest in our ambition. For every € 500 invested, you will receive 200 MPGs. The price of the shares is, therefore, € 2.50. The current price in your Max Crowdfund account can be tracked at any time.
€1.000.000+ Raised Through Crowdfunding
We raised more than €1.000.000 in the antecedent period, through two loans, one in Belgium and another in the United Kingdom.

In the UK, the capital raised will be used to purchase the property.
