  • Over 2.1M signed up as Obamacare plans take effect [View news story]
    Jake...Medicare might indeed have lower administrative costs, but the sheer amount of waste, fraud, and abuse coming out of Medicare and similar programs is why it needs to be reformed...how could anyone call reforming a broken program a radical concept??

  • Why Raise The Minimum Wage? [View article]
    "the real problem is not enough jobs being created in an economy which has been mismanaged for over 10 years." Exactly!

    The minimum wage is really an issue individual states should deal with. A blanket wage is nonsense. The cost of living is so different between the states that a federal minimum would be ineffective.

    The reason the federal government is acting is simply political theater and nothing more.

  • Environmentalists' deep pockets dwarf campaign for Keystone [View news story]
    Just like the stock market, the world climate is composed of an infinite number of ever changing variables. Individuals whom state they can accurately guess the direction or cause of climate change are being totally dishonest.

  • Environmentalists' deep pockets dwarf campaign for Keystone [View news story]
    Unfortunately, most of these environmentalists are acting like robots... mindlessly consuming the propaganda handed the them by their "lord and savior" Al Gore.

    If the oil is not shipped to the U.S. , it will likely be shipped to East Asia where the environmental standards are less strict.

  • Why We Invest In ZIV And Not In XIV [View article]
    Couldn't agree with you more. For long term buy and hold I won't touch an ETN. Waiting for this latest government fiasco to play its course, then plan on backing up the truck and loading up on SVXY while its still "on sale".

    Waiting to see the introduction of a Mid-Term ETF as well...hopefully soon.

    Props to the author, good article. Thank you.

    Avi, thanks for the article, very intersting.

    Quick question...when you write that you are "suggesting exiting your short term trading long positions as we move into the 24.55-24.76 region"...

    Are you recommending selling based on the price of SLV or the spot price of physical silver?

    Thanks!

  • Buy The VIX While It's Cheap Part II: Contango Explained [View article]
    Disallusioned, great article, thanks for sharing it. I currently use SVXY as a long-term "buy and hold", but the Contango-Backward Roll Yield strategy looks even more successful, and appears quite easy to preform.

    Nico, very nice article expaining contango, thankyou. How far out are do you recommend purchasing VIX/VXX options? I usually choose two months. Have you found success purchasing longer or shorter expirations?

  • Protect Your Portfolio While VIX Futures Are Cheap [View article]
    Nico, thank you for the article, its informative and well written. Question, do you trade options directly on the VIX, and if so have you experienced any problems with liquidity? Also, how far out are your purchasing options (2 months, 6 months, Leaps?). Thanks! :)
