  • (1888PressRelease) December 30, 2011 - Chicago: Opalesque, the world's largest subscription-based publisher in the alternative investments area, has launched a new internet-based video program, the "Uncorrelated Investments Show". This free, educational service focuses on investments that exhibit a lack of dependence on economic strength and stock market performance.

    The show's host Mark Melin explains the need for this investment approach: "All investors are impacted by the far reaching consequences of the government debt crisis which continues to weaken the outlook for conventional equity, fixed income and even commodity investments. More than ever in recent history, investors are looking for investments that do not depend on the performance of the stock market and the economy at large."

    The Uncorrelated Investments Show uncovers market environments with deep analysis of macroeconomic trends and its impact on uncorrelated investments.

    The first Uncorrelated Investments Show includes:
    An introduction to little-known managed futures industry
    Relevant insights into the MF Global controversy
    Investor Protection: significant disclosures how investors can control segregated funds investments
    The Show can be viewed here:

    Mark Melin, the host of the Uncorrelated Investments Show, also publishes Opalesque Futures Intelligence and Opalesque Futures Strategies, two specialist publications - dedicated to investors ("sophisticated qualified eligible persons").
