  • Weighing The Week Ahead: What Will The Government Shutdown Cost? [View article]
    Thanks for Miller's comprehensive article.
    As does Rich W. I disagree emphatically with your benign inflation comments.
    I am wondering for a year now what the various statistics offices smoke during working hours.
    Prop taxes up almost 10 Percent
    Food up almost 8 percent some, 10 percent
    (tomoatoes in season 10-15)
    Transportation more than 10%
    Drugs up to 30 %
    Toilet paper and paper towels up 10-15%
    how many comoputer mice - up only 14% or keyboards up only 3 poercent does a person buy per year??
    The officcial inflation numbers are a joke. Almost every houswife and breadwinner does know this.

  • Market Rally: Why You Should Be Worried [View article]
    Quite correct, but all that stimulus seems to be sloshing around the banks and the stock market.

    Infrastructure spending in this country is more than necessary as we are quickly becoming a second world country. (public transport/healthcare systems/education/ etc.etc.)

    How can we get that stimulus into the infrastructure markets??
    That is the question.

  • Hedge funds have doubled their net shorts of the S&P 500 in the last three weeks, reports SocGen. They're at record highs with euro shorts, and have turned net sellers of copper. "Waning support" makes the S&P and Nasdaq "highly vulnerable," says SocGen. Actually, it's the hedge funds that are vulnerable, writes Brendan Conway.  [View news story]

  • Sell The SPY On High? [View article]
    Bravo Capt. Brian

    ..........." We are a sick economy, and sick bankers, sick politicians and apathetic voters............."

    Sick Economy: weak growth rates despite an avalanche of money being pumped into the system. Inadequate modern education of our children to make them able to compete globally.
    Sick bankers: The buck stops nowhere anymore. Mrs. Chase CIO chief: "I was unaware what my traders did", Mr. Chairman: "I was not informed properly by my staff".
    Sick politicians: Unable to talk rationally about the great problems of our time leave alone solving them.
    Sick apathetic voters: anemic participation in all levels of national and local elections.

    Depressing but nevertheless
    Have a good and peaceful Easter.

    Kipling's poem "IF" comes to mind

    If you can keep your head when all about you
    Are losing theirs..............

  • It's tough to find any market pros to go on the record, says a fired-up Gary Kaminsky, but what they're telling clients is the election was bad news for stocks. The bull market from the 2009 lows was about stocks priced for Armageddon meeting massive central bank stimulus, he says, but that dynamic is played out, leaving the markets to deal with the reality of a weak economy and questionable leadership in D.C. [View news story]
    things will get resolved
    (Europe as well as D.C.)

    so market will go up - soon I think - since it is badly oversold right now

  • Ryan Detrick believes he's found another contrarian indicator to add to a long list suggesting stocks should continue higher: The percentage of "buy" calls from the sell-side on S&P 500 components has declined as stocks have gained. Not to defend the group, but might this be a logical reaction to share values 20% higher today than a year ago? [View news story]
    agree with "overbought"
    Timing, my friend, is everything

  • Calling recent stock market action a "buying stampede" unlike anything he's seen in more than 50 years of watching markets, Jeff Saut says the investors he talks to believe the rally is "artificially induced" and is set up for a crash. The big picture: QE remains, profits have risen along with stocks, the Advance/decline line has broken out to new highs - "there is nothing in the 'tea leaves' suggesting a repeat of double-digit declines" seen in the past 3 springs. [View news story]

  • Nomura's incorrigible bear Bob Janjuah says S&P to dip 5-10% in Q2 before hitting new nominal highs in Q3. Janjuah remains "as convinced as ever" that bullishness will "come under extreme pressure" late in the year. For now he recommends "getting short risk at a S&P level of 1550 … looking for a move down to 1450." [View news story]
    what is there so difficult

    buy April puts, May puts
    June puts and so on on a reasonable SPY strike price.

    you can easily calculate your finite cost.
