The Battle for Euro(pe)

iStock_000007053159XSmall

Currency traders are a brave breed. They invest in trades based on moves of tenths of a point. It doesn’t sound like much, but when leverage of 100 to 1 is involved every move is magnified by a hundred times on the upside…and on the downside. **Sponsor** You Don’t Need Money Lying Around Starting a […]

The Talking Heads

Stock market data with uptrend vector

They’re back. I haven’t turned on CNBC for months. For the most part the information you get on that network is old news. They do have good interviews of company CEO’s though, and that is why I decided to tune in. And, they’re a great contrarian indicator for someone like myself, who does trade stocks […]

Those Smelly PIIGS

Piig

They’re burning the midnight oil in Germany and France. The PIIGS are back at the trough again as Greece is back on the menu for default. Well, in truth, Greece has already defaulted on its debt a long time ago. But, for a technicality, Greece is bankrupt, as it should be. The technicality? Well, that’s […]

Overextended – You Bet!

Gold-Money

I was looking through the archives and noted that we’ve been bullish on gold, and silver for many, many months. Our conviction has led you to make enormous profits had you followed through on our advice. Today, however, I must sound a note of caution for the near term. **Sponsor** Have You Received Your Code […]

The State of the Union

Gold

The speech always sounds better during a bull market. The Dow broke 12,000 but people aren’t feeling the love. Maybe it’s because many investors who have made back losses in the market saw those very same gains evaporate with the plunge in their home equity? Worse, the market has basically gone nowhere for a decade […]

Debt Lunacy and Gold

Gold-Money

I rarely watch business commentators on the news. After-all, when they are telling you what’s happening it’s already old news and most of their opinions are meant to get a rise out of you, not really inform you. The other day I happened to turn on the news – don’t ask me why – I […]

On The Horizon for 2011

Fireworks

Happy New Year! 2011 is here and I expect that the markets will once again treat us to an unpredictable showing. If there is one certainty about the market it is that it has no certainty. Remember the flash crash last year that wiped out 10% in a matter of minutes? There still is no […]

The Big Yawn

Money Press

The big drama last week was the tax deal. Looks like we have another two years of the same tax regime. The markets should have rallied sharply on the news, but they didn’t. As with most “sure things” the market had already priced in the high probability of the status quo continuing. All major indices […]

Gold and the Dollar…Strange Bedfellows

Gold Cash

There’s little argument that gold has outperformed every asset class in the past five years, maybe even the past ten. It is the currency of choice during times of chaos. But…so is the US Dollar. Yes, as much as we like to pound the greenback at every opportunity, it still retains the position of the […]

A Bullish Respite

The world’s problems disappeared, magically and overnight. Last week we saw three major rallies. The first was in the S&P 500; the second in the Volatility Indicator (VIX), and the third was in the Euro. It was the latter that ignited the former. Right now the Euro is displaying a very strong correlation to the […]

Plugging the Leaks

Oil Spill on Beach

As I write this BP is trying to plug the leak from its well on the floor of the Gulf of Mexico. When all is said and done the magnitude of crude oil that has been pumped into the Gulf will dwarf that of the Exxon Valdez. It’s been a season of man-made disasters. The […]

The Greek Tragedy Spreads

If you’ve been following these pages for the past few weeks you should be well versed in two things that are going on in the world right now. First, the events in Europe and the resultant effects on the US markets and other markets. We have been particularly bearish of late, and just the other […]
