  • The Markets May Not Be As Complacent As You Think [View article]
    Why would you reserve $ 20,000 to sell a single put to make a hundred dollars ?
    Makes absolutely no sense.
    Government is involved in some fashion.

  • Sprouts recalls peppercorns due to Salmonella risk; shares -1.9% AH [View news story]
    This is ridiculous. Who needs organic Peppercorns ? I'm certain you cannot contract salmonella from dried pepper anyway.

    Agree. Many were crushed w the trade and most were out when this run began around New Year's time.

  • Why Yellen Is Great For Gold [View article]
    Good points. Buy it in some other form then, and you get the upside that would invariably come to you if it (GLD or something similar) were to bust.

  • Perspectives On Friday's Sell Off [View article]
    Right, gentlemen. People thought it was ok to play the part of an insurer and write protections. This was a one way trade. But the risk was capped in the sense that they will/ did get out of these trades already. I get it that there can be spikes that you also would not want to be a protectant of. Let the pros take over now and see where things shake out.

  • Happily Shorting Volatility As Debt Deal Imminent [View article]
    Will you write some insurance on other potentially expensive things, like Nukeman's house, or my boat ? At least those values are known, with losses, although unlikely, are capped. How can you possibly insure against a Black-swan event ? Not rhetorical, I seek an answer.
