  • Something's up in the Spanish bond market, where yields are shooting higher, the 2-year +24 bps to 3.19%, the 10-year +18 bps to 5.81%. ECB bond purchases won't begin until Spain submits to a bailout, and Spain won't submit to a bailout as long as bond yields remain contained, ergo, another peripheral bond panic almost certainly lies ahead. [View news story]
    so, the market is up 10% since Draghi jawboning based on what exactly...a giant catch 22?

  • A Disturbing Look Inside The Mind Of Ben Bernanke [View article]
    didnt Greenspan try the EXACT same approach to inflate housing prices & lower interest rates in 2001-2005? didn't end well...this time we are just printing money, and any marginal positive effects is/will be outweighed by the crushing increase in commodity costs

  • "Whether the economy gets its fix next week or this week or a couple months from now, it is coming," says Euro Pacific's Peter Schiff. Don't be confused, he regards the inevitability of a new QE as a bad thing. The Fed is effectively making "free" money for the government. All assets get priced based on this phony rate, making it impossible to correctly price anything - from mortgages, to stocks or even gold. You can't avoid reality forever though, Schiff says; eventually QE will end and our day of reckoning will come. [View news story]
    hard to bet against a guy who called the housing and financial collapse in 2006/2007 when all the other bought off clowns were calling for Dow 16,000

  • Bear Hunting Along The Amazon [View article]
    IMO a very reasonable forward P/e for Amzn is 30x 2014 earnings of roughly $4... assuming they can grow that number 30% a year for ten years which is a big IF, obviously...so $120 would be a good entry point

  • Market recap: Stocks edged higher to finish a big week, as the weak jobs report lent support to Bernanke’s assessment that the labor market remains a "grave" concern. Treasury prices rose and precious metals jumped as investors played the QE trade. Materials and metals stocks ripped higher as China unleashed a big infrastructure spending program. NYSE gainers topped losers seven to five. [View news story]
    some folks also may have a "grave" concern for higher gas, food, and heating oil prices which QE3 will cause...much more immediately than any benefit to employment
