  • Fed Vice Chair Janet Yellen surprises no one, calling for the central bank to press on with its asset purchases. It's the usual story - the benefits are obvious, the costs negligible, if any. QE will continue, she says, until there is substantial improvement in the outlook for the labor market. [View news story]
    "It's amazing to me that anyone would be long anything here, with these kinds of anomalies going on, and the flash crash of 2010 still largely unexplained or addressed... we are literally milli-seconds away at any time from a limit down closed market..." sept 17, 2012....

  • Michigan Governor Rick Snyder declared Detroit to be in a state of emergency on Friday and said he would appoint an outside manager to help turn around its dire finances, which include $14B in long-term liabilities. City officials have ten days to persuade Snyder to change his mind. Should he uphold his decision, it would be the latest step in attempts to prevent Detroit filing what would be the biggest municipal bankruptcy in U.S. history. [View news story]

  • Electric Vehicle Roundup: 1) Chevrolet Volt (GM) sales continue to fluctuate wildly, up 59% Y/Y and 43% M/M in Feb. to easily beat sales on Toyota's (TM) Prius. 2) Look for Ford (F) to include sales numbers on the Fusion Energi as the model hits dealerships this month. 3) Nissan (NSANY.OB) sold 636 Leafs in the U.S., +36.6 Y/Y, flat M/M, just ahead of the unveiling of a new model. 4) In Scotland, politicians issue campaign promises to install an EV charging point every 50 miles. 5) Tesla Motors (TSLA) trades in the mid-$30s post-earnings. On tap: Will revenue cover payments on a DOE loan and production costs or will Elon Musk need to float more stock? [View news story]
    Time to stop the billions of subsidies to some fat cats that make $100M toys like the F-35. We don't need the F-35 when we have already the F-22!

  • Bernanke Semiannual Monetary Policy Report: The benefits of easing continue to outweigh the costs and risks, says Bernanke in his prepared testimony. Maybe putting to rest the kerfuffle from last week's FOMC minutes, he says QE will continue until there are substantial labor market gains. Watch live here[View news story]
    The people that oppose Bernanke's actions don't have a education, their intellect is defunct.....

    Keep buying firearms t bags, leave economic decisions to the intelligent people.

  • A politician in Cleveland wants to prohibit the sale of energy drinks to anyone under the age of 18 as he introduces a bill to make it a fourth-degree misdemeanor to serve a minor. The crux of his argument is that a caffeine level of 70-80 mg per 8 ounces is too high. In the sector, Monster Beverage (MNST -1.3%) is already ahead of the curve with a plan to change its labeling which will make it clearer that its drinks contain less caffeine than coffee and could back off regulatory probes. [View news story]
    Thanks to the council member. It is time to put a stop to these energy drinks that are killing our children. Enough is enough!

  • How much debt can the U.S. handle? A new paper quantifies an 80% public debt to GDP ratio - where the U.S. is right now - as the point at which a nation reaches a potential tipping point; once a nation has debt above that level, it becomes vulnerable to the kind of self-reinforcing vicious cycles that have crippled others. Two responses from Fed officials see the analysis as simplistic and eurocentric[View news story]
    Yep, $500B. Keep in mind that the financial sector is still in a weak state, we need it robust.

  • Amid worries that rising gasoline prices are on the verge of pushing the U.S. into a recession, an MIT study makes the case for even higher taxes at the pump. If the goal is to get Americans to drive less and use more fuel-efficient vehicles, and to reduce air pollution and greenhouse gases, the study says higher gas taxes are at least six times as effective as stricter fuel-economy standards. [View news story]
    A $1.50 surcharge on a gallon of gasoline should do the trick. It would push Americans into energy conservation.

    Deficits don't matter. What we need is growth not a obsession of self-flagellation...The Federal Reserve has to be more agressive and conduct asset purchases above the $500B amount per month.

  • Understanding The Bull Market [View article]
    "My view all along has been that if the US had done the difficult thing (let the banks fail, let equity and debt holders face whatever came and only protected depositors) we would have seen real and organic recovery by now. "

    We did that in 1929.....Herbert and his cronies believed that if we let everything fall it would all come back.

    There are costs that can't be calculated by fancy methods or calculators. A lot of children went hungry those days......

  • Gold's now in a clear downtrend, taking out new technical lows, hit by (3-month old) news big names are selling, and now the chart's starting to form the dreaded "death cross." All the gold bugs need for a perfect bullish setup would be Paul Krugman taking to the air to declare victory for all he believes ... check. GLD -1.7%[View news story]

  • 2013: Another False Start [View article]
    2013 would be a "false start" like 2012? Double digit returns are nice for me. So I would gladly appreciate another "false start".
