  • Make 70% A Year With Math [View article]
    "Correctly practiced, investment research and management is a scientific endeavor with clear, objective rules requiring zero interpretation which can be proven or disproven using data. That's science. Testing ideas scientifically is not only real work, but is also an ethical responsibility."

    The author's abuse of the concept of 'science' when married with the (far-more-predictable) abuse of the concept of 'ethics' shows the hubris with which economists self-define their role in our civilization.

    The author's "data" is like the trajectory of a board game. A mathematical science at best -- and one that doesn't require data that means anything.

    The hard science that economics pretends to embody is called ecology. (I can hear the sneering already -- "Money is real; mass/energy is some hippy concept.")

    Even if this worked over a few year period, there's no explanation being offered for why the market wouldn't compensate for the inefficiencies that are being exploited here.

  • Peter Schiff: Dollar Collapse Before Obama's Out [View article]
    really?
    PRC still mostly holds USD, yeah?

    a good reason for them to buy all of their gold production...until they have more gold than, say, Italy, it's not likely the world will trust the RMB.

    wrong timing. PSLV has traded at much larger premiums. i'd say, nowadays, go in the opposite direction. when the spot rate spikes, the PSLV premiums *may* spike again. only THEN should you sell PSLV and buy SLV -- that's what Sprott himself did.

    that being said, SLV is JPM-backed, and is probably a pile of crap. trade that paper like the paper it is.

    I think there's only about $10K in silver there. Numismatic value's another ball of wax.
