  • Oh, the humanity? The "Hindenburg Omen," a technical indicator that foreshadows not just a bear market but a stock market crash, is predicting a market meltdown in September. Time to get out of stocks, or just a good conspiracy theory?  [View news story]
    human nature is random?

  • 7 Problems That Will Keep The Markets On Edge In 2015 [View article]
    It's interesting when analysts talk about selling out of stocks when a downdraft begins and yet quoting Warren Buffett as an authority. I suggest either investing with a value philosophy or being a trader. I don't think Warren will sell his stocks when the market drops.

  • Cramer's Mad Money - Strategies for Staying in the Game (9/4/09) [View article]
    Jim's show Friday was a good listen for investors, but he misserved us by recommending an impossible IRA strategy....one cannot contribute to a tax-deductible IRA when a 401k is available at the place of employement, rather, one can contribute to a Roth....but, then only if one doesn't make too much money.

    His handlers need to keep him better informed.....

    Using Buffettology's commentary as your model is a poor choice, in my opinion.....

  • Don't Be Fooled - Short Selling Restrictions Do Work [View article]
    Seems to me that the issue is naked shorting.....if institutions or wealthy individuals are able to naked short millions of shares without impunity, a stock is defenseless without regard to fundamentals. The Bush Administration has gutted the SEC so that they are understaffed and therefore can't discover nor prosectue the perpetrators. I think that shorting of financials was stopped because the SEC knew they couldn't stop the naked shorting.

    I'm a believer in shorting and that it's important for liquidity and valuation discovery purposes (btw, where were the shorters in 1999?)......naked, unrestrained shorting is deleterious to orderly markets.

    Another thought.....looking at the returns of hedge funds during 2008, I wonder who are the true perpetrators of naked shorting? The average hedge fund is not performing well in a season of rapid, huge profits from shorters.....so, who is actually doing this? If this issue isn't fodder for an investigation, what is?
