  • Axion Power Concentrator 124: July 08, 2012 [View instapost]
    all the investors in Symphony Bank lost 75% of their equity in 3 years. The Bank never made a penny of operational profitability. So for every $10.00 share they received $2.50, a Hershey Symphony candy bar, an over built location with a heated parking lot. All by the management of Steve Tolen.

    there are several small or regional market makers you could work with who usually know whats up or most likely to happen in their markets. these individuals focus on transactions that are of no interest to the larger firms of investment groups.

  • Gold and Silver's Firmly Established Trends, For Now [View article]
    its hard to predict if gold and silver are in the early stages of a bubble because the purchasers are very diverse in nature and buying a varied array of holdings. its a lot of folks picking at it not a charging heard or mad crowd which tends to be the beginnings of the bubble. what else is there on the understandable spectrum of investing if its not these commodities and coins especially. its not cotton, oil is to volatile and you need a lot of money to hedge it up down and all around for even money or the chance to lose against the big boys. what are you going to do bet the dollar is going down further so the choices are slim in an uncertain market. bankalchemist. is what Ben Franklin had to say over 200 years ago.
