  • The Margin Debt Indicator - Busting The Myth Of An Overleveraged America [View article]
    Thanks for the comment. It would be interesting to see if that would give a different outcome. Hopefully, someone could write an article on that as well some day. The bottom line is that, like you said, absolute margin debt is a flawed metric. It's just a matter of finding what is most relevant to normalize the number.

  • The Syria Effect: Emerging Markets On Sale - Attention Contrarians And Rational Investors [View article]
    I just see a strange relationship between many of the emerging market ETFs you mentioned. Small cap ETFs performing terribly while large cap ETFs were performing alright up until the past few months. Isn't that how bear markets start? Like I'm remembering the Russell 2000 Index rolling over long before the Dow in 2007. Good read though. In my humble opinion, we're stuck between a value play and a major downtrend, so timing seems the most important factor.

  • Builders Bullish, Market Bearish [View article]
    Makes me think of how people always refer to the stock market as a "discounting mechanism" Maybe the underperformance in home builders points to a significant negative development in the months ahead?

  • Tesla Sentiment Check - Public Too Optimistic On Earnings Release? [View article]
    While I am still somewhat a bull on Tesla's future, the ones calling for a bubble in the stock may find this article interesting.

    Oh no way would I ever short it either. Interesting comment about the CEO making very positive hype about the company and that relating to its excellent performance...

    (Ponders for a moment)

    Okay, you're right. ;)

    It's because it's almost always foolhardy to be bearish in a bull market. Just wait until things start getting ugly in the overall market, then I bet you'll say the opposite about our posts =p

    Oh that's right! They produce only what is sold as part of their system right now! No dealers. Thanks!

    Yes yes. I think, in a different example, of Warren Buffett. While he has been long-term bullish on America for his entire life, I am sure that he would be just as discontented with buying at the top of a bull market as any other investor. Plus, if one expects a large correction in Tesla in the near term, wouldn’t it be an even more loyal action to wait for the stock to decline so an investor can buy more shares? I certainly understand what you are saying though in terms of loyalty and supporting the stock, and I will always hope that Tesla’s revolutionary products become a wild success in both a business aspect and from an environmental sustainability prospective as well.

  • The Bottom Of The Interest Rate Cycle - An Investment To Make For Decades [View article]
    Hmm...I think that an article with a risk analysis of inverse bond funds is overdue. Thanks for the comments everybody :) I'm sure we'll see a pretty big move in one direction in the bond ETFs around 2 PM EST this afternoon!

    I agree. It's definitely an investment to pyramid into, rather than put the whole capital at risk immediately.

    With regards to the sentiment argument, you might think this is interesting.

    It's mutual fund cash flows into bond and stock funds. In the past two months, there have been some very, very large outflows. Much more than any in the past four years. It's really neat how it correlates to bond prices; kind of like seeing supply and demand in action.

    I'm with you to a point. If there was a way to short T-Bills besides futures/eurodollar futures, it would be much easier to not lose out on your investment. A cyclical upswing in bonds from a secular downtrend could definitely knock out most of your gains. =/

    I like it! I would definitely prefer a fund that isn't tied to a daily directional movement though. Know any funds that are not tied to a daily directional movement?
