  • Momentum ETF Seeks High-Beta Stocks [View article]
    In the past year the momentum ETF has barely outperformed the SPY ETF itself.
    This is based on a comparison of the performance charts on Stockcharts. Go there and see for yourself.

  • Linn Energy: Not A Ponzi Scheme; Not Even 'Ponzi-Like' [View article]
    My problem with all of this is that if I am investing in an MLP, I would like to think that the company is making money storing and transporting oil and gas and related products. If I want to invest in a company that is playing crap with the derivatives market, I would invest in a financial company that is designed to do that. I realize many companies like to hedge their positions, but it seems LINE is being too aggressive and is going too far afield. That is raising the risk profile way beyond what it should be for a pipeline company.

    Sand has a way of shifting rapidly. Likewise a line in the sand.

  • Commodity Chart Of The Day: Daily Silver - All Aboard The Silver Express [View article]
    I think silver needs to consolidate at this level for awhile, like it has done before after declining sharply, before it moves up or down.

  • Commodity Chart Of The Day - Copper [View article]
    A lot of commodities are down in response to the stronger dollar. So my question is what does the stronger dollar say about global growth.

  • 2 Gold-Related CEFs To See A Climb In Coming Months [View article]
    If you look at a nine year chart of gold (GLD) vs a ration of GGN vs Gld, it will show that gold has been in a steady uptrend while GGN relative to gold has had some serious declines. GGN is presently near a low point relative to gold, so there may be some upside here. But as a long term investment it would seem at a glance that gold would have been a better investment even though it does not pay a dividend.

  • Why Is The VIX ETF Near An All-Time Low? Same Old Contango [View article]
    In light of all of the above, would it make sense to just buy 6 month puts on VXX to take advantage of the decay ? Same question regarding puts on UNG, which also seems to decay on a regular basis.

  • Market recap: Buyers returned to the market late in the day, and stocks pared most of their losses after the weak jobs report raised concerns about a slow economy. Health care and consumer staples were among the leading sectors, while financials lagged. NYSE decliners led advancers three to two. Yields on the 10-year Treasury fell to 2.826%, lowest since April 2009.  [View news story]
    I think I agree with the commentator on CNBC today who speculated that the worse the economic news becomes the more the people who are trading this market think that the Republicans will take over the House. Whether or not they can solve the economic problems is beside the point. The sentiment is that Republicans will be more friendly to business. If that is what will drive the market for the next few months, it will be hard to trade on economic news.
