  • Wall Street Breakfast: ECB Poised To Launch Quantitative Easing [View article]
    Thats interesting. I thought the home team provided the balls. That is a problem if one team was using different balls on offense. Although in this game I doubt it made a difference. The Colts were dominated completely.

    I do believe the NFL needs to take strong action in this case anyway. Bill's proclivity to cheat needs to be curbed. Maybe he needs to be out of the NFL. He seems to be one of those who just can't help cheating even if he doesn't need to.

    Do you think you could feel the difference of 2 psi underinflation in a football? I can't.

    And since the Colts didn't bring it up during the game, I don't think Luck could feel any difference either.
    Or one could suppose that it helped both teams. It wasn't just the Pats that were using the underinflated balls.

    China is injecting $8 billion into their economy via their central bank and the EU should announce plans today to inject at least $50 billion per month for at least one year. That is a lot of money looking to be put to use.

    Thats my positive note.

  • Leucadia to keep FXCM in operation with $300M in financing [View news story]
    It was the 100:1 leverage that they allowed that sunk them. So you have a 10% loss leveraged at 100:1...whoops.

  • Wall Street Breakfast: Swiss Stocks Extend Slide [View article]
    Unintended consequences of the Swiss CB action is that currency traders are being crushed: http://on.wsj.com/1y5eEIf.

    Complete loss of liquidity for some large firms. Of course I have to wonder why 100:1 leverage was ever allowed. That seems excessive, even for currency trading where big moves are not the normal. I am wondering if this could lead to more selling of stocks and bonds as well. I guess we will see today.

  • Swatch boss: "Tsunami" just hit Swiss exporters [View news story]
    Yes, but isn't most of the production capacity located outside of Switzerland for all of those names? Corporate offices are one thing, the actual production facilities are what generates costs.

    Nestle, Roche and Novartis have production facilities all over the world. They are truly global corporations with Swiss headquarters.

    So it would seem, as negative bank rates haven't deterred the conversion of Euros into Swiss Francs.

    Their economy is small, but this move is going to hurt it. Besides the famous watches; they produce some pharmaceuticals, dairy products and they have a decent tourism industry. Move is negative for all of those.

    It is interesting that the symbol UBS (http://bit.ly/1yn8imm;getfields=*) which is the symbol for UBS Group AG doesn't work on this site. It is a valid NYSE symbol as I've shown with the link attached.

    And it does trade at a different price than OUBS.

    Volatility in oil remains. WTIC now up 2% at 49.49/bbl, passing Brent crude.

    The US is going to do that too (increase the Federal fuel excise tax). And I think it will happen quickly.

    Exploration and capital expenditures are already being/have been cut by O&G E&P companies in the US and Canada.

    I am surprised at the rise of fuel in prices in Hungary. Although oil is priced in $US and the Euro is declining, I see no explanation for a 40% price increase in refined product.

  • Everything Has Changed: Oil, Saudi Arabia, And The End Of OPEC [View article]
    If that were their intention, I believe they could sell their in-the-ground reserves to the oil majors and probably get at least the difference between their current cost of extraction and $40/bbl.

  • Copper Makes A Move - Is Copper The Next Oil? [View article]
    The number of mines that can produce copper below $1/lb is very low now. Lower fuel cost will help, but that alone won't make $1/lb copper feasible for all but a handful of mines.
