  • Did The Market Miss The Fact That One OPEC Member Is Already Significantly (Voluntarily) Cutting Production? [View article]
    Grasping at straws? :-) I dont think Qatar on its own cutting production will change direction of oil price.

  • Abenomics 2.0 - Just What Are They Trying To Achieve? [View article]
    Good article.

    "For Paul Krugman that something else would be a lowering of the real interest rate via rising medium-term inflation expectations"

    Totally ridiculous from Mr Krugman. We already have ultra low rates almost globally, so i cant see how lowering them even more is going to stimulate growth. Its arguable whether QE had any effect on US or UK real economies. Sure market participants have enjoyed a bull run like not other in history but that is not the real economy.

    I am starting to think QE has no effect on real gdp, and US and UK econmies have improved because of other factors. I dont know what they are.

  • A Preliminary Note On Japan's Q3 GDP Reading [View article]
    Seeing the horrible Japanese GDP print, i think its time for Keynesians to eat a little humble pie. I think Krugman was only last week calling Abenomics are role model for the world.

    Dont laugh.

  • Still Lower Prices Ahead For Oil? [View article]
    I think another factor which might depress oil prices is the increasingly lower cost of green energy like solar.

  • The Elephant In The Room Makes Its Presence Felt - What Will Mario Do Next? [View article]
    Its too late for QE in Europe, and Draghi has not got the power without Germany onboard. All Draghi can do at this stage is pretend they might unleash huge QE.

  • GLD - Why Gold Is So Volatile Lately [View article]
    Yesterday´s big price move was very much based on the Swiss Gold referendum poll showing YES in the lead.

    Really markets are these days moving almost entirely based on news flows.

  • Take Cover Now - They Don't Ring A Bell At The Top [View article]
    I think we need a triple top before we go down for crash. In the mena time we´ll have some more false alarms. But the big one is coming.

  • Strong Trouble Signal On DJIA By Market-Makers [View article]
    Market seems stalled to me. Each day making slightly new record highs. Valuations at max.

    There's no way to go but down. Just bought my bear ETF, all ready for the party.

  • Oh No Canada [View article]
    Canada is heavily resource, and metal weighted market. That why there is a differential in stock market performance.

  • Pity The Hedge Fund Manager [View article]
    The sad truth of the markets since 2008, is that caution and hedging was a complete loser strategy because of central bank steering, creating an atmosphere where every asset class went through the ceiling.

    the fact is just putting money down on in index fund in 2009 and not looking at it until a year or so ago, would have made one far better returns than any active management of said investment fund.

    Basically they created a dumb dumb market. using your brain in this market is detrimental to your success.

    However when this market does return to normality, if ever allowed to do so, it will be a shock for the new trader generation who started trading post 2008 and think everything always goes up, for ever, ad infinitum.

  • Dollar Technicals Stretched, But Fundamentals Supportive [View article]
    We even had rallies in the midst of the worst carnage during 2008/2009. I would not consider last weeks small rebound in oil/metals as a bottom. More carnage to come.
