  • Most Short-Sellers Can't Catch a Break [View article]
    Great chart concerning the short sellers but the big gains on the last few days of gains can be attributed to a short squeeze. We anticipate an additional 3-4 percent gain being fueled by the financial sector but the best play for our long-term gains will be in ProShares UltraShort Financials (ETF).

  • Look for any piece of news that smacks of an improving economy to send stocks falling next week, warns CNBC's Jim Cramer. Why? Big money investors will interpret any positive economic signs as a signal that the Fed is about to pull back economic stimulus rather than risk runaway inflation. Still, he says, there may be opportunities in the pullback, particularly in the bank, tech and industrial spaces. Just says away from anything with a higher yield, like utilities and MLP's. [View news story]
    Our Fund has been following Jim Cramer and the Mad Money sound effects for 7 years. One consistent thesis of being invested in a diverse sector of stocks is sound but let us let history teach refresh our ticker screen. A world wide broad market sell off will not prevent the profits performing an evaporation performance from your portfolio. The market has been built up by the corporations side way manipulations. These corporate manipulations made sound economical policy as long as the "quantitative easing" was in place. This federal policy did away with the pain for the last three years. We anticipate the easy money will go the way of the Mad Money. We will look for the reserved corporate cash to fund over one billion in cooperate stock buy backs at a bargain basement price, again.

  • U.S. Inflation: Delayed, Not Denied [View article]
    Excellent article and the calculation that the category of excess reserves (i.e., Excess Reserves = Total Reserves minus Required Reserves), is in my opinion the canary in the coal mine. As you stated, " the Federal Reserve essentially "printed" the money for its asset purchases by crediting the depository institution's account that sold (i.e., brokered) it the Treasury bonds or mortgage-backed securities, effectively creating federal funds". As the banking system did not use those newly created federal funds to expand loans, exemplifies the current housing price rise due to the gauged release of AAA Insured portfolio derivative assets to inflate the perceived market value: thus, risking another real estate bubble just to liquidate their balance sheets of the toxic assets. This smoke and mirror effect must have been sanctioned by the Federal Reserve. In ordaining this practice these new reserves remained as excess reserves and never migrated to the required reserve category. This means that for a given expansion of the monetary base (i.e., total bank reserves plus currency outstanding), the measured money supply does not expand at its old multiple - known as the money multiplier - because the traditional multiplier impact has been rendered almost non-existent in the post crisis period of tighter bank regulation (not to mention the previously discussed lack of demand from deleveraging consumers and corporations). Well stated but there is much profit to be made in the confusion of the banking regulations that are being implemented.
