  • Greece Is Fixed And Everything Is Awesome! [View article]
    Mr. Sardonic, I love it. But it is gallows humor, as the mkt is killing me as it keeps going up.

  • Most Of The World Sees An Oil Glut, Yet U.S. Inventories Fall, Prices Rise [View article]
    Oil is in a major bear market and has had a major rally. Thus the likely hood of it already being over is widely hoped for but extremely unlikely. The producers sold short massively in the $100's for 2 years or more. They diminished their selling during this rally but are still heavy sellers at levels near the point where the bear really started, last July. So, be careful bulls.

  • Is Our Economy's Cinderella Carriage About To Turn Into A Pumpkin? [View article]
    Those FRED charts could be very bearish. Those huge drops in 2008 frequently show the underlying support has collapsed. But nonetheless, a large rally back transpires, like Indian Summer, before the real winter hits. Only the fullness of time will tell.

  • Who Is Lewis And What Does His Turning Point Have To Do With China? [View article]
    Another view. Peak oil, peak productivity. Depends on whether or not they get some really smart productivity fracker. Even if there are several years of low productivity, it will reemerge. Solar will be cost efficient with grid in five years and LockheedMartin says they have solved the energy problem with practical fusion which will be testing around 2020. Just that plus analogues of computers, cell phones, etc (things we have hardly imagined) will bring about fantastic growth and productivity without population growth.

    But they steal very well. Maybe China is like the US in the 20th century. Even so, we had the 1930-40's and 65 to 82. The extremes to which they have gone indicates a depression by next year, unless they have somehow repealed economic cause and effect. I have read several articles that indicate they have a real demographic problem.

  • Deflation Works [View article]
    Man, take a look at commodities. Grains, metal, energy, softs, all down. Why are restaurant prices up, good question. How about interest rates! How about standard of living?

    Silver has been in a bear market during Morgan's buying spree. So does that mean we should continue shorting?

  • Why Is JPMorgan Accumulating The Biggest Stockpile Of Physical Silver In History? [View article]
    I read that the swap banks like Morgan are securitizing commodities like they did mortgages in 2000-2007. They sell them to pension funds, insurance companies etc that want non-correlated investment. There biggest move was in oil, and we see how that worked out for their investors.

  • Investors exit bullish oil trade [View news story]
    The commercials (producers) had a sharp drop off in buying last week. They had record breaking short selling for a year prior to the big drop. They have been buying heavily for the past few months - covering their shorts? They had a very sharp curtailing of buying last week. That frequently marks the end of a counter trend rally. Since everybody seems bullish, that could be correct.

  • IS THE DOLLAR TOAST? DON'T BET ON IT. [View instapost]
    There was some astrological deal whereby every president elected in every or every other year ending in zero, died in office. So all the esoteric people said Reagan was in trouble. Well, he survived. I read that is because the configuration moved from a fire sign into a air sign. But anyhow, the pattern changed. Although we may be in a similar situation to WW I and II, it will not happen. This happening in the middle east is really significant. It has the potential to finally lance the boil there, which will enable healing. By historical standards we are relatively at peace now.

  • Economic data shows Japan nearing deflation [View news story]
    But it has worked so well so far. US real estate topped out mid 2006. The ramifications of that was not seen by the markets until Dec 2007. Chinese real estate topped out in Aug of 2014. Will it take that long for the markets to see the Chinese crash has been happening. Probably, because the way the news is always presented. Soft landing, converting to a consumer driven economy, the slow down is healthy, etc. As Bernanke would say subprime contained and real estate prices will not fall, even though they had already started.

    Could it be another chance to short oil and gold?
