The Battle for Euro(pe)

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 [...]

The Talking Heads

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 [...]

Those Smelly PIIGS

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. [...]

The Big Yawn

Gold and the Dollar…Strange Bedfellows

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 [...]

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 [...]
