  • Greece threatens to sue Europe [View news story]
    It's not a good comparison. But it is a good point to show the problem with the EU. California could do that. However they are part of the United States POLITICALLY as well as financially so there would be consequences. Greece is part of the EU but the EU is not a political system like the US is so there are not the same consequences.

  • Crude Oil: Demand Destruction Keeps Oil On The Selling Block [View article]
    I believe that range bound is what the Saudi's want right now. When they shift their intentions the market will shift too. Don't fight the Saudis!

  • No Surprises From OPEC: Pushing Demand? [View article]
    shn1974, You haven't been here long have you? This article has a favorable signal to noise ratio. If you need a point spelled out "exactly" in an article like this you should probably lurk somewhere else.

  • World Oil Output Last 3 Years [View article]
    Great article.

    I bet the Saudi's have the numbers and I bet their accurate and up to date. I still see big SUV's all over the roads and in almost every garage here in the Midwest. A retired friend of mine just got back from a 9,000 mile road trip because "Now is the time, it's spring and gas is cheap!"

  • One Man's Self-Deceit Is Another Man's Rationalization [View article]
    Well, I just feel weird. The economy here in the Twin Cities is close to all time levels and everybody I know is busy. Where these statistics (either ours or everyone else's) are coming from I do not know.

  • Falling Knives: Do Stocks Really Drop 3 Times Faster Than They Rise? [View article]
    Stocks drop fast when you are not short! When you are short prices drop is very very gradual. It keeps dropping for months to tell you you were right about the company but slowly slowly slowly to screw you out of all of the short profit!

    Sorry, That's flip, but I couldn't resist!

  • What Just Happened In The U.S. Treasury Market? And Does Bill Gross Have A Crystal Ball? [View article]
    I'll give Gross credit for his thoughts on the Bund (short it now!). But predicting the end of bonds? That's the widowmaker trade. Don't even try. It may happen, it may not. There won't be any little fish that profit when it finally topples though. Massive players with high connectivity will hedge appropriately.

  • The Texas Oil Strike [View article]
    Interesting analogy. The real lesson of last year is that when Saudi Arabia says the price of oil will fall then it is going DOWN! Don't fight Saudi Arabia.
    I share your opinion that oil will be replaced long term and I want it to happen as soon as possible. However, that time is not near. It's not even close.
    Demand and use of oil will jump hard every time prices fall like this. I don't pretend to know what industrial users of oil and gas are planning right now. I do know that me and my friends and most everyone else I know is planning to drive more at these prices. I also see last week that sales of Hybrid SUVs jumped right up. Sure they use less gas but they still use more than good old cars and stations wagons.
    This whole episode with Saudi is entirely political and all political episodes are temporary.

  • PulteGroup earnings, soft new home sales lead homebuilders lower [View news story]
    I agree that zero rates are making buyers complacent. However in my neighborhood all the new housing developments are are out of mothballs and in progress and new ones are starting up every day. Homebuilders are NOT behaving like they are worried about selling their product. I think they are behaving correctly too.

    Excellent article! If I hadn't dropped out of grad school I could have easily been that inflexible absolutist back then.

  • Should You Buy Into Oil's Secular Bear Market? [View article]
    I wasn't sure you were being sarcastic until point number 4 that concludes "as peace in the middle east creates...."

    There will never EVER be peace in the middle east. Not ever as long as there are human beings living in that place, on this planet, that we call the middle east will they ever live peacefully with one another there. That will never ever happen
