  • Wall Street Breakfast: Apple Posts Another Record Quarter [View article]
    James, China is not part of the Trans Pacific Treaty negotiations. That's why Obummer said that it is a tool to counter China's power in the region.

    Tappering didn't cause the market to crash but, since the FED stopped pumping liquidity in it, it's not doing that great...

    Worry not. An interest rate increase is just going to be the prelude for QE "I lost count".
    I'm suspicious of the JPM - Silver trade. Too obvious. They may be short 10 times that in the futures market.

    Gold is one of the few element of value that, when held physically by its owner, allows you to escape collective actions. Because even your 30 year fixed rate mortgage will not shelter you against collective action; tax increases, derelict public services, confiscation or arbitrary change in the nature of the contract (ask Chrysler bond holders about the sanctity of contracts). There are however problems with holding gold physically. First the safety can become an headache and another is in the fact that governments can ban it. Then exchanging it for something valuable will make a criminal out of you.

  • Wall Street Breakfast: Markets Prepare For Week Of Central Bank Decisions [View article]
    Notwithstanding the effects of GMOs on people's health, which are not proven, the problem is societal. Producing companies are basically patenting nature and food with all their might even suing farmers who are unlucky enough to have a couple GMO plants in their fiels thanks to wind pollination. Think big tobacco or Wall Street in your plate. And think about the consequences of that.

  • Weighing The Week Ahead: Time For An Upside Breakout? [View article]
    About the worst strategy (I have no time to read the article); the graph doesn't look like you get out after a 5% drop but at a much deeper level, particularly when you look at it during the 2008-2009 period. The flaw in the reasoning is the following; if you get out after say a drop of 5% to dodge volatility with a view to come back, then you must come back after a rise of 5%. Because if you consider that a drop of 5% is a top then you must consider that a rise of 5% is a bottom.

  • Fortum Yields Almost 6% And May Have A Special Dividend On The Way [View article]
    Your broker has to cover the market and then you've to check the fees. I tried Canada with Schwab, they were as expensive as a Swiss bank. If start a $20,000 position for buy and hold it's ok, otherwise fees kill you.

    It's the OTC figure but effectively it's dangerous because the OTC market maker will take a huge spread if you suddenly come with 1,000 shares.

    His hedge fund is $ 150 millions it's the equivalent of you and me going under the couch's cushions for scrap change to finance the purchase of a laundromat.
    I think it's going to be a dud.

    Greece will never leave NATO unless they want to be a province of Turkey the year after.

    I don't like football and basketball because your ability to participate is dependent on the genetic lottery. If you didn't win the lottery, you can only watch. Soccer and hockey, to the contrary, are opened to anybody willing to play.

    They are effectively stuck in a corner. If rates can't be moved by the market, then the currency will take the hit. But for the moment, the rate differential is so favorable to the US and liquidity in search of yield so abundant, that I can hardly see a sustained drop in the USD.
