  • Inflation Market Priced For Omnipotent Central Bankers [View article]
    One has to be careful with the data from government. A lot of errors have been known. The inflation rate is understated to fleece the people.

    Then we have a nefarious institution called the federal reserve which caters and serves the banking oligarchy. Back door deals,money moved thru all the world without accountability....

    Ben Bernanke has been wrong before and made very costly errors. He said in late 2007, that there was not a housing downturn and subprime was contained.....

  • Market Outlook 2012: Seeking The Holy Grail [View article]
    Here is the problem with your thesis. Corporate profits, retail sales in 2011 were very strong. And still the market didn't get nowhere. The S&P 500 is flat for the year, horrible performance and that is without taking in consideration inflation. What is going to change in 2012? In fact things are going to get worse, especially with demographics.

    It is irresponsible that the Federal Reserve is talking and taking into consideration more easing.

  • Wall Street Breakfast: Must-Know News [View article]
    "Van Rompuy admits legal problems". He also should accept that they don't love democracy. As soon as Papandreous mentioned a referendum-something which people have a right- they moved fast, and in a move that could have made Hitler blush, they appointed a puppet. Van Rompuy should admit that they are a bunch of politicians living in ivory towers, who don't give a damn about the citizens. Where is the democracy? Where is the right of people to choose their faith? Why a very small group of persons controlled by moneyed interests controls our path? It is time for the European people to take action.

    One topic you don't see talked about in cnbc, wall street journal or whatever big media, it is the effects of an aging population? This would be a big drag on consumer spending in the next 10 years. Why? Because retirees are not in the mood for purchasing big ticket items. They tend to save, and spend less. Here is the big problem, our 68% of GDP is derived from consumer spending. I don't know but unless we have some major tech revolution, the next ten years are going to be of living standards dropping.

  • Uncertainty in Europe is just one reason for the market's weakness today, says Abby Joseph Cohen. There is an incredible amount of risk aversion right now, as trigger-happy portfolio managers, anxious to protect gains, react harshly to any whiff of bad news. Investors should look past year-end, as there are many positive signs for the market, Cohen says. One glaring example - the Fed's dividend discount model implies the S&P 500 up to 40% undervalued at present. (video)  [View news story]
    A question all these sell side analysts should answer is: do you know the huge effects of an aging population? It doesn't bodes well for consumer spending which last I looked was at around 68% of GDP.

    Of course. Both sides make maniac calls to grab the attentions of the gullible. Like it says: "a fool and his money are soon parted".

    Here it is another of the countless mad calls made by the eternal permabull Cohen......http://bloom.bg/rSvU22


    On that link dated December 7 of 2007 she called for the S&P 500 to reach 1,650 in 2008. Yeah, her excuse probably is the same propaganda spew by those so called experts: "no one could have seen it coming".That's pure BS. A lot of people were already in 2006 warning us, a person who really understand macro would have seen the highest service to debt ratio, low capital levels in banks, low consumer savings rate, home prices above the mean, declining dollar, eroding manufacturing base, stagnant wages.....etc...

    Why do Wall Street is always bullish? Because they derive their income from arbitrage, spreads and fees. They need movement......

  • Trying to get out  ahead of what must surely be a coming downgrade if the ratings agencies want to retain any of (what's left of) their credibility, Sarkozy says the loss of France's AAA would be tough, but not insurmountable, reports Dow Jones.  [View news story]
    If France really starts with their so proposed budget cuts, they are going for a deep recession. Last Two quarters GDP has been flat. It just needs a little push and voila!

    India industrial production dropped 5%. http://reut.rs/w5dBPH

    HFT controls most of the trading volume, this is why we have this bipolar maniacal response in the market at each headline that comes.

  • Will S&P Downgrade Europe? [View article]
    I don't know if the S&P 500 is going to downgrade Europe. I don't trust ratings agencies. Setting that aside, governments from Europe don't want free markets. They have said "bondholder losses unacceptable" there lies the root of our problems. Why do we need to impose such draconian austerity cuts just to protect banks? They should be protecting their citizens, not the incompetent executives who feel like they are the rulers of the world.

  • For Growth, Washington Must Cut Spending [View article]
    For Growth, the government needs to:
    *ban lobbying, our government function should be to serve the people, not a group of higher interests funded by cronyism.
    *Audit the Federal Reserve, force them to be more accountable to the people.
    *Jail and bigger fines to those executives who put at risk the company and the jobs of working Americans. Mozillo is laughing right now at us.
    *Stop with the laws that supposedly prevent threats but are costing our freedom.
    *Next time a big Wall Street firm collapses, let it be. Let the free market do its work.
    *Do not order more wars for the sake of it. We cannot be the police of the world.
    *Incentivize jobs over welfare.
    *Promote long term infrastructure spending in conjunction to tax cuts for small business if they increase capital investments or create jobs.
    *Raise taxes on the banks, eliminate deductions.

  • Birth Of The US Of E [View article]
    Too much optimism by your part, Mr. Blankenhorn. All is about perception. For you it can be seen as the salvation we all needed. For me it is a kick the can attitude made by the same people who once promoted lower deficits, but turned their eyes from it as things were "booming"....Not looking at the structural problems, demographics, wages stagnation, private sector overcrowd, etc...

    I am not saying we can make a lot of money from this, just arguing that the common man gets again the kick,and the banks are unscathed again.

    It was to be expected. Gold has been the real winner this year in the clash between equities and gold.

    I shorted GLD when gold touched just around 1,800 an ounce, I would probably cover soon.

    Meanwhile I keep buying some small quantities of physical assets like farm land, foreclosure property, and of course precious metals.
