Contextuall was founded on the belief that people’s online activities are a leading indicator of what they plan to do in the future. - Before you buy a car, you search for the best deals online - If you just lost your job, you tweet about it - If you’re visiting your local shopping mall, you “check in” with your mobile phone - When you’re reading financial media, you might be influenced by the bullish/bearish tone of the content - And so on… Contextuall uses cutting-edge machine learning and artificial intelligence technologies to transform these unstructured data points into useful insights for portfolio managers and investors…
Kapitall is the online finance platform for the next generation, where investing is as easy as drag, drop and trade. With an intuitive and playful user experience, Kapitall offers tools that make it easy to build virtual and real brokerage portfolios, share ideas and research stocks and funds.

A new age platform for the latest in finance and everything else.
Through Bidness Etc, we’re bringing the 99% back in the loop by presenting the best financial research in the simplest and most creative ways possible.
We have distilled a decade and billions of dollars’ worth of trading experience into developing the idea behind Bidness Etc, and we feel we can do a better job of analyzing and reporting financial matters than anyone else.
We are a team of more than 60 financial wizards, musicians, rock stars, artists, singers, aspiring philosophers and tech geeks working hard to change the way human beings think and interact with finance.
We know that quality financial analysis requires a higher level of intelligence, and that what is reported by financial media is too far behind the curve to be of any relevance to the savvy reader. Here’s our solution to that problem: a platform that gives away the best information and analysis out there for free, thereby democratizing individuals’ access to finance. We’re also pushing the envelope by delivering it visually.
We feel that by doing so, Bidness Etc. will become humanity’s first step into a new age for financial media, and that we’ll set the standards for tomorrow with our revolutionary new product.
And that’s not all.
We know that figures, facts, numbers and stats can get quite mind-numbing after a while. Therein lies the kicker: we’re presenting our data in the most visually appealing ways possible. By doing so, we are quite literally transforming financial reporting into a new form of art. We have also incorporated an entertainment section in our website, which tracks the global zeitgeist and provides our take on the hottest topics trending on the web. We feel that this will help us take finance to the mainstream, and complete what the Bidness Etc. experience is all about.
This is a beta version of our web portal. We hope it will keep you coming back for more, because we have a major surprise in store for readers for the month of November. Here’s a spoiler, though: finance will never have looked better once we go all out! And you’ll know we’ve meant Bidness all along when we claim to become the best place on the web.
I chose the screen name "Malkiel" as a sideways tribute to Burton Malkiel's beloved "Random Walk Down Wall Street". The book had been out forever and I found to my embarassment a couple of years ago that Mr. Malkiel was not only still alive and well, but young and chipper. I offered him some apologies for appropriating his name while commenting on an article of his which appeared in SA a couple of years ago (no response, so we are perhaps forgiven). This year I found to my surprise that I now have more "followers" than people I'm "following" (a scary moment which makes one start looking over the shoulder to see who's watching) and I didn't want any of them to do so thinking they might be reading the actual web musings of the esteemed Burton Malkiel. It is, alas, just a pretender...
