  • Janet Tavakoli & Dave Fry on Financial Reform & Goldman Sachs Lawsuit  [View instapost]
    Obama's financial reform speech today supposedly is to target `risky decisions' by Wall Street that led to credit crisis. Fig leaf reform as mentioned in earlier post. How about targeting "risky decisions" by Congress such as Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac?The proposed regulations demonstrate that the president ignores or doesn't care to know how markets operate. What a regulatory mess this will be.

    John: I think you should read Dave's disclaimer which is posted. This might be helpful in making a more educated post next time.

    "...the charts and comments are only the author’s view of market activity and aren’t recommendations to buy or sell any security. Market sectors and related ETFs are selected based on his opinion as to their importance in providing the viewer a comprehensive summary of market conditions for the featured period. Chart annotations aren’t predictive of any future market action rather they only demonstrate the author’s opinion as to a range of possibilities going forward.

    As a subscriber to Dave's newsletter, I need to let you know that signals to buy these were issued several days ago-- not today. It's hard to argue and second-guess when all of his portfolios posted positive performance results for 2008 --especially his DSP Multi-Strategy which was up 9%.
