  • Barclays VEQTOR ETN: S&P 500 With a Volatility Hedge  [View article]
    If this becomes a behemoth, I guess it will add to the overall market volatility in certain instances, i.e market is already crashing and the ETN dumps its holdings.

  • 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]
    It is incorrect to use the term "very statistically significant". Either the stat is significant or it is not.

  • Seven Reasons Silver Could Soar and Four ETFs to Play  [View article]
    If you are buying at 1150, why not now if your target is over 3 K ? Seems ridiculous to miss all that upside for a few dollars basis.

    I prefer Platinum for several reasons. Takes up far, far less space, is also underpriced with respect to its gold relationship, and similar important industrial utility. I would highly recommend US coinage since it is readily available and has a great up-side in terms of numismatic value.

  • Calling BP (BP) a "good opportunity for bargain hunters," Shokri Ghanem, Libya's top oil official, says he'll recommend the state's sovereign wealth fund take a stake in BP post-Gulf spill. "BP is interesting now with the price lower by half and I still have trust in BP..." (see also)   [View news story]
    Yep. The folks from the middle east with plenty of money to burn but little common sense were quick to buy up C shares. How did that workout for them ? It didn't mean anything to them with all that oil money to burn, but if you emulate them and try to invest alingside these morons you will feel a lot, I repeat a lot of pain....

  • Wall Street circa 2007 was "a gigantic Ponzi scheme," Howard Davidowitz says. Because accountants and auditors allowed banks to carry assets at "completely fraudulent" valuations, he says, the industry looked hugely profitable and was able to use borrowed funds to make leveraged bets on esoteric instruments. But financial reform only adds regulators who "can't regulate anything" and does not address the systemic problem.   [View news story]
    Incoherent. Ok ?

  • Recent economic data pointing to a possible double-dip means the Fed's next move ought to be easing rather than tightening rates, Michael Pento says. How so, when they have no bullets left? Stop paying interest on banks' excess reserves laying fallow at the Fed. "If [the banks] don't get paid by the Fed, they will be forced to take a chance on the consumer."   [View news story]

  • It's one thing to make hedge fund bigwigs pay income rather than capital gains tax rates on holdings they get for nothing, James Pethokoukis says, but the proposal that would tax them at ordinary income rates when they sell the firms they built is so "bizarre" that some thought it was a clerical error. But cash-strapped governments will do strange things.   [View news story]

  • BP's (BP) containment cap is now siphoning off more than 10,000 barrels of oil per day, but the Coast Guard says "there will be oil out there for months to come" and clean-up efforts could extend into the fall.   [View news story]
    Pick the best name (to person) and average in. This is one of the components of market you would want to own if the portfolio is continually, well hedged. OXY, maybe XOM. I like the former. Even with a very bearish portfolio--- but you need to own something.

  • Raters like Moody's (MCO) blew their calls, but unlike sports there's no way to correct the damage with instant replay, Randall Forsyth says. See the raters as stupid or conflicted if you like, but the market is seeing them as irrelevant: Capital markets are rendering summary judgments through credit-default swaps.   [View news story]
    P.S.
    I think MCO has been and could be one of the greatest short opportunities out there. They are more than worthless.......

    I agree completely. I don't abhor these people out of envy, but rather because these are scum who adds nothing to society, in spite of their proclamations. They have way too much inside info to trade on to be screwing the public over and over and over....

  • The general consensus that the BP (BP) oil spill is the worst-ever environmental disaster is "wildly overblown," a University of Alabama professor says. The amount spilled is tiny in comparison to the amount spilled by rigs and tankers around the world every year, he says, and it's not even the worst spill ever in the Gulf of Mexico.   [View news story]
