Dear IWB Family:
We have survived the chaotic year of 2016, and there was not a dull moment. Now we stand together at the open door of 2017, ready to meet the mounting challenges facing us in both the financial markets and alternative-news media. IWB wishes you peace, the ability to cope with the changes upon us, and a prosperous financial environment. We are committed to keeping you informed on both fronts; thus, enabling you to be successful in your endeavors throughout the year.
IWB wants to reach out and thank our readers, supporters, and writers, because sustainability depends on ALL of you. Here at Investmentwatchblog, we are enduring the pressures of being both a financial and alternative-media source; however, we cannot do that without you. We are fortunate to have such a loyal group, who has stood with us through the years, as we watched the unbelievable become reality.
We have witnessed the most controversial election in the history of the United States of America. All I can say is “misery loves company,” and you know what I mean. Without the ability to trade thoughts, share stress, and joy…how could we have survived? We in alternative-media
have had the opportunity to truly make a difference in the direction of our Country. For the first time in history, the Internet has contributed to the outcome of an election. WE THE PEOPLE spoke, and our voice was heard. We chose a bold and brash leader in President-elect Trump to lead our Country away from the “business as usual” political Washington crowd.
You guys know that we are in a media war, Facebook, Google and other internet gatekeepers have announced plans to censor all independent journalism by labeling it “fake news.” We need readers to subscribe to our newsletter just in case of a widespread censorship taking place. The continued growth of IWB depends on your support, and our actions to improve upon our ability to communicate in a timely and factual manner.
To bring you the most honest and up-to-date financial and alternative-media news, we have brought in two new very talented and professional journalists. We would like to take the opportunity to introduce them to you. First we have Amna El Tawil
The following is a little bit about Amna, and we asked her to share with you how she feels about being a part of IWB:
Hello! I’m Amna El Tawil, a journalist and news correspondent. I started my journalism career in 2011 as a Middle East reporter, and later became an editor and world news writer. Joining the Investment Watch Blog team of writers has been one of the highlights of 2016 for me. The alternative news approach IWP uses sheds in depth light on American politics and finance, while also maintaining an international perspective on the most important current issues.

Next, we have Oliver Donaldson. Oliver is a currency derivatives trader located in Toronto, Canada where he helps corporations manage risk from market fluctuations in commodities and currencies. Starting his career abroad in Shanghai, China gave him a deep understanding of the global trade events and market movements that shape the global financial system. By working in both supply chain management and finance, Oliver understands the risk that the companies face from an unpredictable market. Now back in North America, Oliver is glad to share global insight on what risks the market will encounter in the coming years.
“I am very happy to join Investment Watch Blog in 2017. The website offers an accurate voice of what’s really happening in the global markets and is never shy to speak the truth. Investment Watch Blog finally offers an alternative viewpoint and empowers people with the real facts that the mainstream media always tries to hide.”

IWB wants to take this opportunity to welcome Amna and Oliver to our family. We hope they enjoy writing for IWB as much as we enjoy their contributions of keeping us informed and moving forward.

– Voluntary contributors. – submitting your observation or analysis. This means so much to the IWB community. During this time, we are facing scrutiny in the media. You guys are well informed, and you know the challenges alternative-media is facing. So we ask that you continue fact checking before submitting, because MSM is trying to discredit alt-media in every way possible We have to be up to the fight.
– As long as you keep liking, sharing, commenting, clicking on the articles and supporting the blog, we’ll keep standing up, speaking out and fighting back!
We want to thank all loyal readers, who are sharing our posts everyday to other social media and conservative sites.
This means so much to IWB in spreading the word and, of course, in attracting more readers, supporters, and writers to our website. We seek to grow, endure, and continue to support the investment and alternative media.
We had to remove the pop-ads due to intrusions upon the readers, a large portion of revenue disappeared; therefore, again we need as much help as possible. We don’t have big sponsors like MSM; we rely almost 100% on ad revenue. Any help that is possible will go to the continued effort to run this site, expand it, and deliver real news to YOU the people.
In conclusion, we are so blessed to be able to share the exciting news of these historical times and work with you guys, because there is so much to report and share. It is hard to keep up with the constant updates, and we would not be able to do it without you…our loyal family of readers, supporters, and writers. Thank you for everything, and we will do our best to continue to keep YOU posted daily on the financial and alternative-media news.
