    “By a continuing process of inflation, government can confiscate, secretly and unobserved, an important part of the wealth of their citizens.”

        -- John Maynard Keynes



    A short note only on my birthday.  We're shortselling three issues today (short-term trades): ERTS, Electronic Arts, HOV, Hovnanian Corp, RBS, Royal Bank of Scotland.  All three are representatives of industries that are insolvent and getting worse.


    DAILY PORTFOLIO


    Our daily portfolio is up 12%, with the first trade being on 6/29/09 -- so this is roughly a 25% annualized rate.  Note: we are also including the number of short trades in each portfolio and the percentage of long trades to show how overwhelming the bullish trend is at the moment.  These percentages should begin to change as time goes on.
