  • Never Invest In Gold [View article]
    This article would have been much more insightful if it had been written in the spring of 2009, at the market' bottom and even more so at gold's top in September of 2011. Articles written in hindsight are rarely useful going forward.

  • The VIX In 1 Month? [View article]
    How can the author talk about a "return" on the VIX when the index cannot be played directly? The VIX derivatives are a whole different ball game are the worst performing class of all ETFS.

    Sorry, but this article is complete rubbish and should not have gotten past the SA editors.

  • Gold: 3 Stories, One Of Them True [View article]
    Yes, gold is really only worth what the next buyer is willing to pay. That same line of thinking could be applied to stocks. Stock prices are not directly tied to the worth of a company that issued the shares to begin with. Immediately after shares have been issued, their value becomes what someone else is willing to pay. We see a good example of that principle when IPOs are put to the market and valuations can quickly go to extremes depending on the strength of investor demand. Earnings are often ignored as being irrelevant as demand for the stock trumps all other factors.

    The bottom line is that every stock on the board could drop to one cent and not affect the day to day operations or profitability of the listed companies.

    Correction : Eric, you haven't published 'the market is going to crash' warning for quite some time. Have you capitulated and gone full bullish?

  • Is The Tide Shifting With Natural Gas? [View article]
    It's too late in the winter season for weather to be the big driver of price and yet mid March to the end of May is usually a strong period for NG, based on the seasonality of the last 20 years. I remain bullish with a moderate long position.

  • Natural Gas: Another Week Of Nothingness [View article]
    Natural gas could go either way but I am betting on the upside over the next few months. The current price of 2.70 is well below norms for this time of year.

  • Natural Gas: Another Surprise [View article]
    Playing natural gas is not for someone who believes they need to use stops for 'protection'. The big boys routinely run the stops to an extreme before reversing NG for nice profits. That happens almost daily and even twice a day on occasion. Thursday is the day that the weekly report is released when stops are most likely to be taken out as NG makes a big move in one direction and then reverses.

    predictorman: you are selling and I just bought at 2.88. I hope to see 2.85 and I will buy more.

  • Natural Gas: Another Surprise [View article]
    A pullback to the $2.80-$2.85 region would be a good time to buy for another pop. This is the best time of the year to be playing the long side. The cold weather hitting the east is expected to continue for at least a few more weeks.

  • Natural Gas: Sputtering Action [View article]
    Henri, I suspect that you are going to regret being short NG. This is the absolute worst time of the year to be short natural gas. Overnight trading could kill your position while you are sleeping. I am long at 2.68 .

  • Natural Gas: Sputtering Action [View article]
    GWL002: UGAZ is a triple leveraged play on natural gas futures, specifically, the front month. As the front month is sold and the next month purchased, there is a 'roll' cost involved that reflects the difference in pricing. The difference in pricing for the future months is known as contango.

    Unless NG is moving up strongly, UGAZ will decay in price due the contango issue. In short, UGAZ is not a good way to play NG except for the very short term.
