  • Wall Street Breakfast: Panic In China Reverberates [View article]
    James,
    I agree, but don't forget there was a French professor who tackled the terrorist first and was shot down, and a Brit was involved too.
    Amazing how one crazy man with an overstretched mind can cause so much harm to well-trained young men.
    Still, you're right: these 3 US military are true heroes.

  • Stocks: Perspectives On The Selloff [View article]
    And the good news is.... doldrums.... the downturn goes really fast.

    With WTI at sub $40/barrel and promising to go as low as $25 due to a staggering overproduction, the Arabs haven't got any lolly money left anywmore.

    If the Arabs haven't got any lolly money left anymore, who's going to buy the US T-bonds ?
    Iran ?

    To a certain point US citizens might, and of course the Fed.

    Still, I foresee more trouble in the shape of rising T-bond rates.

    Only gold will be the ultimate safe-haven.

    Who is going to buy the 10Y US treasury's now that the Arabs, due to the low oil price, can't recycle any income anymore ?
    Japan ?
    China ?
    Have they much animo and ammo left, confronted as they are with their domestic problems ?
    US citizens and corporates might, to a certain point, yes, and of course Yellen.

    gel,
    You could have pushed the "down-" Arrow instead of scrolling.
    Any finger will do, some even use their toes.

    Saw,
    "I will except that we strongly disagree :)"
    I haven't the faintest on what topic, but if it makes you feel good to disagree, be my guest.

    Prezzo,
    "Whereas you expect the opposite."
    Based on turmoil, turbulance, high volatility, instability, agitation, confusion, disruption, tumult, queasiness, chaos, disorder, tension, uproar, revolutionary upheaval, kerkuffle, stir, hullabaloo, hassle, unrest.... that always come with deflation.
    Gold likes these phenomena. F.i. the Greeks never bought so much gold in their long and ancient history as in the last year, notwithstanding the raging deflation they face.
    To put it in a nutshell.

    gel,
    Yes these days the markets seem to go berserk, don't they ?
    Still, with gold going up, I have the impression I get richer by the day. But thanks to the sharp equity plunge, REIT's included, I wipe my face.

    How many trillions have been wasted on global equity markets these days ? Well, it doesn't sound so much if you say it quickly: 14 trillion.

    What I meant is that this surgeon's parlor was well filled. Only later have I found out there was a good reason: people kept on coming back there to complain after being mistreated. Some wanted their money back, most wanted his scalp. But no one aired their frustrations in the parlor which was unfortunate for the new clients. And internet hardly existed in 2004.

    gel,
    "and have seen the efficacy it provides for a long period of time."
    Good for you.

    "the reliability is only as strong as the interpretation... and this takes skill. Medicine is a science, but..."
    That sounds menacing.
    When I had my knee injury and I wanted to know what kind of surgery would be the best, I had 4 different opinions from 3 different surgeons, one surgeon being a schizophrenic.
    At the end I trusted the one with the largest parlor.
    Wrong choice: he damaged the main nerve and ruined the bursa.

    I hope Ben doesn't get a large parlor.

    Doug,
    Not my type of music...
    Exactly, deflation will make gold fly.
    Have you not noticed that in the course of history deflation always comes along with turmoil ?
    Just call it VIXX...

    dverenes,
    "I'm talking about people I personally know,"
    That is the price to pay for having a reference currency..
    You win consuming power, you loose jobs.

    Saw,
    "Corporations are people."
    That is indeed the case and its something nowadays EU politicians often forget.
    They think corporations are fiscal milk cows.
    Those at the end of the food chain can only feel good when corporations prosper.
