  • Will Gold And Silver Continue Their Run Up? [View article]
    Is AGQ a daily rebalanced fund, or something worthwhile for smaller metals investors thinking long term? Let me rephrase the question - can anybody please - just for fun - hazard the forum a guess at the price of AGQ should SLV hit 50, and later, 100?

    If SLV triples from here, does AGQ roar to $300/sh?

  • Lessons From Last Week: From Faith And Hope To Fear And Dread [View article]
    BouBou- Trend lines also selected as they relate to introduction of vastly faster computer chips and explosion of internet information streaming and high tech enabled derivatives. Funny, but sitting in my pajamas, using margin in trading account and 3x leveraged ETFs, I can control almost 1.5x my net worth with mouse clicks. But apply for a 12k car loan for my daughter I'm dragged through the coals...

    My "vertical ascent" comment is a visual experience. Pull up a DJIA chart going back to 1910 and just take in the picture. It shows a plainly hysterical picture of messed up math.

    What is happening in the market has very little to do with the current sitting US President.

    With everyone more or less in agreement that the market is heading lower over next few months, well, you know what that means. Time to to abandon all reason and go long again. Inverse ETFs have opened the shorting game to everyone with a dollar and a pulse, making trends almost impossible to plot because everyone is just rushing from one side of the boat to the other. Hopefully the market will get seasick enough we can all puke and take the market down to a realistic level. Plot a trend line from 1966 though 1996 and draw that out, see where we should be now. 6000 low end, 8000 high end. No market orbiting the sun can maintain the near vertical ascension we've seen since shortly before the tech bubble. Isn't it common sense? (Vs. faith, hope charity and ......greed.)

  • The Market Is Freaking Out: Here's Why You Shouldn't [View article]
    Jack- You are correct. But mention "regulating" the combustible tinderbox that is the 40/1 leveraged derivatives game and baby -- you will be drawn and quartered. Look at a chart of the DJIA since 2000 and tell me your children should "invest" in America and buy indexes and someday retire with something. Rigged game, straight up gambling, bad bad days ahead for rank and file unable to sit and trade all day.

    More great thoughts George, couldn't agree more. I'm watching PMs again today hoping to pile on more Silver if we brush the $35 area soon. You wrote: "It was reported in yesterday’s Wall Street Journal that a staggering 46% of the population fall under the Fed's guidelines of being below the poverty line."

    What can this be but the eventual fall out from the shifting of every conceivable manufacturing job overseas? You can't put the entire population to work in software and finance, or McDonalds for that matter. We had a $1.2 trillion home equity cash out that fueled all kinds of construction/consumption job creation, and just as suddenly it is gone. Poof. The next crisis is what happens when the enormous public sector job market -- and I'm talking about public protectors like cops and firemen -- start looking at bleak pension default notices showing up in the mail. It's a big ball and it's rolling downhill.

    What makes you think Medicare will be available? That is like saying there will be magic tricks in the future. Have you looked at the math of Medicare?

    Anybody know if crazy weather has impacted tobacco crop prices?
    I see leaf price spikes as about the only threat to this story. FYI - regulators are decades away from trying to curb the growth of smoking overseas, the way they do here and in parts of Europe.

  • The Gold Rush Has Just Started [View article]
    So, bash big government Obama, then lament that "governments don't address that our manufacturing has moved out of this country?" Who moved manufacturing overseas, the Democrats? And related to the 700 billion dollars we borrowed from China after 9/11 - "Trust me, Saddam has weapons of mass destruction." Actually Dick Cheney said "We have NO doubt....they have WMDs and INTEND to USE THEM against the US and our Allies. Your brain is literally in the palm of somebody's hand -- guess who's?
    I report, you decide.

  • Never Too Late To Plan For Retirement [View article]
    Medicare and SS will largely be toast in 25 years. I keep asking, does anyone care to hazard a guess at the cost of health insurance for a married couple in their 70s? Give a monthly number, please. Rates are increasing anywhere from 4 -15% annually, now. This is a math question; I am looking for a number, not a health and well-beng philosophy muse -- as much as respectfully agree with all of them!

    Will seniors compete with high school kids, college students and recent grads in the new flat economy paradigm? Or will there be a highly beneficial, inter-generational mingling of minds and ideas?

  • 14 High Dividend Energy Stocks Hedge Funds Are Crazy About [View article]
    A friend of mine is buying MLPs and REITs and hedging with small positions of inverse oil and financial ETFs. Been doing this for a while, seems like a no brainer. Any thoughts from the MLP gallery?
