  • Margin Debt Peaks May Indicate End Of Cyclical Bull Market [View article]
    Have also heard the concept that margin debt by itself will not CAUSE a correction. However, the higher it is the more risk is out and covering the margin calls with selling could amplify the correction.

  • Vringo Rated As Rotten: The Company Shows Why You Don't Speculate On "Patent Trolls" [View article]
    Probably just a case of technological development outstripping antiquated Court Systems and their technologically challenged judges and clerks. Similar to Nicola Tesla who in 1903 predicted that "man will someday hold a device in the palm of his hand and talk to anyone in the World." He was publically dismissed as being "crazy".

    No doubt, however, that Global Corps and their big bucks and revolving doors between regulatory positions in Gov. and Board Rooms are the tail wagging the dog. Look at the drug, Vioxx, for example. Over 20,000 people killed by it and the FDA was still saying it was safe. It went on to kill nearly 60.000 patients and the maker took it off the market due to lawsuits long before the FDA took action.

  • Death Cross For S&P 500 And Russell 2000 Taking Place [View article]
    Agree Tmoss, SPY not even close to "death cross" ( 50 dma crosses below 200 dma). Euro Asian Markets a different story. Check out ETFs VEA and EFA. They are much closer to the dreaded "cross" though could still pull out of the dive.

  • Why Thursday's Sell-Off Matters [View article]
    Sounds good in principle but only works if you sell at the top so you have the cash to buy at the bottom. Otherwise your equity values decline and you LOSE value on paper. I guess if you have a ton of cash laying around at all times let it go up and down and who cares, right?

  • The Way Of The Bull And The Bear [View article]
    Instead of sarcastic attacks why not answer his question/issue? Easy to ignore the facts isn't it?

  • Lowest Put-Call Ratio In 3 Years Suggests Near-Term Caution Is Warranted [View article]
    "Mess with the Bull, get the horn." With QE easing factored in, ZiRP, low T Bill yields, low to no CD rates, dovish Yellen, etc. there is really nothing to stop the current bull for at least the next month to two months IMO. At some point a sell off for profits has to occur and my guess is by mid to late August at around 10-15% then back up again into 2015.

  • Whole Foods Market Vs. Sprouts Farmers Market: The Healthiest Showdown [View article]
    In any event it's good to see people are waking up to the toxic effects of GMO Franken Foods and processed "food" with no nutritional value, empty calories, transfats, HFCS, preservatives, and petroleum products in them.

  • What Effect Will The ECB Have On Gold? [View article]
    SLVO is getting ready to be prosecuted by the USDJ for helping Americans "evade" taxes. I'd go short on that one or dump it all on Monday.

  • When Butterflies Attack [View article]
    Mad Comics are still alive and well and cheap too. Just finished another year subscription; great stuff as usual. I'd love to see them do a Wall Street or FED Bank spoof.

  • Correction 2014: Are You Prepared? [View article]
    You can also buy the "short" ETFs like FAS, BIS, XPSU, etc. These are ultras ( 2x and 3x) so can pop good or decay if held more than a few months. I'd say about now would be a good time to pick some up.

  • Interest Rates Make Stock Bubble Bigger Than In 2000 And 1929 [View article]
    I would say "crazy like a fox" as the ultra rich elites are by no means "imbeciles" proven by the fact that they gain wealth when the unwashed masses lose it.

  • Detailed Case To Short The S&P 500: This Time Isn't Different [View article]
    Productivity is rising due to robots and robots don't make wages and spend them. This is what the demise of our Middle Class is all about. In the next 10 yrs. 30% of the current workforce will be displaced by technology. If the minimum wage is increased that timeline will likely accelerate. Jobs are coming BACK from China now for the new U.S. workforce; robots.

  • Detailed Case To Short The S&P 500: This Time Isn't Different [View article]
    The word "irrefutable" is so cool just can't refute it. :-)

    Seriously, I'm seeing mostly sideways chop with a 10% more consolidation then a run back up to that level by the end of this year. Major factors are low short term interest rates pumping bottom lines with cheap working capital and dismal cash returns forcing Equity plays to stay ahead of inflation.

    "The Market rarely rewards the obvious" I once read and a "crash" seems to be the "obvious" right now.

    SS should not even be part of this argument as it's self funded and supposedly in a "lock box" if the politicians hadn't raided the fund and replaced the money with worthless IOUs. Very simple to "fix" SS by increasing the income level it's taxed on to say $300K and that would make it solvent for the next 50 yrs.
