  • Why The Correction Didn't Become A Crash [View article]
    Jeff, this is what I dont get. The OP is 10 times smarter and more knowledgeable than me, but if inflation is so low, than why are food prices sky rocketing, some 10 percent a year, some 20, and over the last several years some things have doubled or tripled in price. But if the fed numbers line up in the input box and can be extrapolated to make money in the market, that is all that matters.

    And if the CPI is true to its numbers, it surely doesnt help poor or retired people living on a fixed income. Food should be weighted more than the rest of the variables.

    Reading all these comments makes me think of the the scientists in Atlas Shrugged, hey if the numbers are in front of me they must be true, because that premise says so.

    I don't care what spectrum or avenue people are coming from, the new world economy that is melding together will be bad for american people in general. I guess that is the cycle of life though? We have enough people in the US that need help but we are going to invest 30 billion to africa to tap resources. Another benefit for them to gain off of market economies.

    Isn't it around 5 percent of the wealthy own 83 percent of the equity market? Yeah that keynesian market economy really works out for everbody.

    But yeah, I get it, this isn't about morals or ethics, this is about making money!!! All Hail the dollar as the mighty god.

    I would think if deflation occurs many of the food corps that mainly distribute in the US would be great investments. Commodities may go down but all that corn syrup refined food junk will stay the same price or go up.

    Oh and don't forget the TPP and TPIP the establishment is pushing, which will increase corp profits but jobs will go overseas. That is okay though! My stocks will go up! YES! And while the petro dollar and reserve currency is waning slowly, the more alternative energy we can push would actually be an advantage for the US in the future, even if it is all subsidized, lol.

  • Senate fails to approve Keystone XL pipeline [View news story]
    Call me a cop out, but I wouldn't say critical thinking, just gotta do the research. There is a massive amount of information that they would prefer the herd to not find and it can be overwhelming. At some point, because of lower gas prices I wouldn't be surprised to see them get their additional tax in for road maintenance. The last gas tax was to lower the deficit, that worked out great.......

  • Vringo: After The Federal Circuit Decision [View article]
    vito, people said that about 2014 coming up, and the potential, and keeps going down. If the en banc is rejected and VRNG takes a hit again, I'll get back in IF VRNG takes a hit in stock price. In the mean time, ZTE sure likes to abuse the system.

  • Gold Collapse Resumes [View article]
    some comments here have explained it well. It's all about confidence in the system. Whether you like or not, the people in the system have no problem making money on all the options available at any given time. Why "invest" in gold when you can make more money elsewhere. Gold will stand the test of time but during that time there are plenty of places to make money in between. And those who make the money, own (debt free). When you own you are way ahead of the game. Even if the dollar loses the world reserve currency in the future, which probably will happen, it doesn't mean the world has ended, there will still be plenty of places to make money.

  • Bullish Silver Stealth Buying By Professional Investors Continues [View article]
    kat, more like 4 years ago. Or 6 years ago depending on what you are looking at. Look up anything with JPMorgan. I never saw updates to the docket, BUT, it looks like an appeal was rejected in March of 2014 in favor of JPM. So that case is closed.

  • MannKind: What The Market's Implying, And Why It's Wrong [View article]
    alot of hot air in the article. The stock has no revenue, it works solely off technicals. Pull up a weekly chart with the 50, 100 200. Clearly shows buying areas. Its make or break time in the middle of next year.

    Charles, why not let the free market decide. Why would oil get a pass and not silver?

    Katgod, I agree with your comments. I don't really follow commodity trading too much so I don't know what most traders believe is appropriate but the additional margin needed to buy as certain things go up is somewhat ridiculous. They kept increasing it on silver when it had its last hyperbolic move. At this point, why would anyone own it, when they can go in the stock market without having to worry about that. It seems precious metals would benefit from a cataclysmic event. Not saying I want that though.

    katgod, I think he/she is refering to the apparent whistleblower on JPM that was shorting a massive amount of silver paper. This apparently went to litigation, there is even a docket for it but I don't know whatever happened to it. And why would they do this? TO make inflation appear less, or to make people avoid precious metals and park their cash in the stock market. Don't act like statism doesn't exist.

    zorrba, but when? I know when is irrelevant but I think I am overthinking this and blurring my vision but who says gold and silver have to go up? Why can't it be something else? Call me a conspiracy theorist if you want, but as long as the petrodollar stays, I can't see much changing. Russia, China, etc have been pushing deals outside of the dollar and at some point the dollar won't be the world's reserve currency. I would think this would be the tipping point but not for a long time. What does the US establishment do? Take everyone's gold again? I dunno.

  • The State Of MannKind [View article]
    crab, i know of the certificate method and forgot to mention that. I've always heard the cash account and certificates were the ways to go to avoid your shares being shorted. If you say the signing off on the application gives them the right in a cash account... would that be depending on the broker or are you saying its pretty much standard across the board?
