  • Protect Your Portfolio Against Volatility [View article]
    January is too soon, equities might not selloff like that in 14 days and puts may lose all value quick. Why not go till March, and capture the volatility that will almost certainly occur due to the debt ceiling super cliff ?

  • House Republicans - including House Majority Leader Eric Cantor - are reportedly overwhelmingly opposed to the fiscal cliff deal approved by the Senate. The House appears poised to amend the deal and send it back to the Senate, setting up a legislative high-wire act. [View news story]
    There are 3 more cliffs in the next three months, with opportunity to bring spending cuts with them (debt ceiling, budget, sequestration). The key is to start working on that tomorrow (or as soon as possible), and not wait until we are already over the cliff and desperately trying to breathe to start working.

    You know, tax hikes for everyone--which happens if they do nothing-- is a little worse than this.

  • House Republicans won't bring their "Plan B" tax-cut proposal to a vote tonight, as Speaker John Boehner says he doesn't have the votes; the House will recess until after Christmas. DJIA futures slip 0.2%. Boehner: "Now it is up to the president to work with Senator Reid on legislation to avert the fiscal cliff." Updated: S&P 500 e-Mini futures dive, limit down. [View news story]
    I don't know what futures you're looking at. Still horribly bad.

  • Friday Fiscal Follies: Markets Live And Die By The Rumor [View article]
    AAPL went back up to 525 that day as a reaction to fiscal cliff talks--the whole market went higher. Otherwise, it would have closed on the lows.

  • U.S. Treasury Bonds: The Short Of 2013? [View article]
    It was the short of 2011 and the short of 2012.... maybe, just maybe, the Fiscal Cliff clown show will make the world realize we really can't pay all of this debt back and TLT will start to fall.

  • XIV And ZIV Are Huge Success Stories 2 Years After Launching [View article]
    QE forever has placed a sort of ceiling on volatility, at least that's my theory. You could be waiting a long time for 2008 / 2011 style volatility to return, while these products will keep churning higher.

    Keep in mind if we go over the cliff then this may not matter.
