  • Economic Take-Off In 2014 Due To Lower Fiscal Drag?  [View article]
    I just skimmed this, so I certainly may have missed something. There "appears" to be various opinions politely expressed, most of which are advanced with no real confidence. If this were a poll, would the box marked "I don't know" have the most checks? And be the best answer?

  • China Vs. USA: And The Winner Is...  [View article]
    A comment was posted that China would have another Tianamen Square. If China were to issue executive orders as unjust as our Affordable Health Care Act, their system of government might be as volatile as ours.

    I realize people posting on here for the most part aren't personally concerned about trifling matters like health care costs.

  • The "fear gauge" is flawed, says Citi's Mike Pringle, and investors risk harm by using the VIX (VXX) as an indicator of market risk. "It's an asset class and it's more traded for yield than protection," he says, noting the growth of structured products based on the VIX as dampening reported volatility. "It's still relevant in extremes, but not in a normal functioning market."  [View news story]
    No need to deal with vxx and tvix unless you are just trading very short term. In the medium and long run they will drain you. There is potential profit in the slower moving vix derivatives. You should do some thinking about the best way to do this.

    Do you believe that if Obama were removed from office and replaced by Joe Biden a market crisis would ensue?

  • The Fed Is Not 'Printing Money'  [View article]
    Of course the Fed is not printing money. The Nazis in Germany didn't put anyone in gas chambers. We must believe all government proclamations! Things are much happier for us that way.

  • Congress Will Capitulate On The Sequester  [View article]
    We are just like the European Union. We will kick the can again. Even on criminal investigations like Fast and Furious Congress folds to the administration. We have "another" two month delay. Delay to nowhere.

  • The 'Sideways' Stock Market  [View article]
    @Westcoaster............. the dumbest guy on here. Can someone explain how that P/E chart can skyrocket and then plummet the way it did? It looks like someone has been fiddling with the numbers, bigtime. Even though I'm dumb, I'm stubborn. It might take a pretty thorough explanation.

    Just maintaining the overspending we have on all fronts, rather than increasing it.

    Dizzy Dean belting out "Wabash Cannonball". Diz didn't pussyfoot around and it's time the world followed his example.
    Move Greece out of the EU. In fact, a Northern EU and a Southern EU with separate currencies would even be a long shot. Germany and fiscally responsible pull out, the southerners do a version of mad inflation and then bankruptcy. To be followed by the US down the road.
