  • Today was the "worst day of the Obama presidency" - the tax deal unraveling, his political capital spent, upstaged by a former president and by the Senate's farthest-left Democrat. Joe Weisenthal says this may mark the day Obama "officially became a lame duck."   [View news story]
    "now the blogs and discussions are like everywhere else" ...why do you think that is?

    Relax dude, if you don't like what you see don't waste your time and energy being angry. You can never separate politics, money and opinion. If you are unable to filter useful and educational posts from the noise that will always surround this stuff you are not as smart as you think you are. There is a load of good stuff on this site every day.

    Now, don't get all worked-up and miss Keith Olbermann tonight...couldn't help myself.

    In presidential politics perception is everything, by bringing Clinton into his own house to speak for him, President Obama gave up any gravitas he had left.

    This was a good week for Obama until he stood at the side of a "popular" president with his arms crossed. He looked like a bullied kid that had his big brother come to his rescue.

    Remember, we're talking perception here. He'll get even less respect from the left-side of congress now.

    The ultimate confirmation for us...is PIMCO having to liquidate/rotate quite a bit on the Total Return Fund (at-least one other of their funds got the same treatment). They issued a special dividend to balance their big migration (very curious to see how they work through this). I've been in that fund for a long time. Pushed about 25% of T Return into an emerging bond fund and another 25% in Philip Morris International. Already have all the exposure my nerves can handle around gold and silver...for now. Big fan of PSLV.

  • Hoisington Capital has been bullish (and mostly right) on the long end of the curve for many years. They methodically explain why QEII is ineffective and why local government cutbacks will trump the recent tax deal. They remain bullish on the long end. Full report here.   [View news story]
    So far the 30-year Treasury has disagreed.

    It is interesting though that PSLV was down 3%, whereas SLV and SIVR were down 5%.

    you meant to say one day...and 5% is hardly a crash for something that is up so far in the past year.

    You've got balls to go short now. Can't say that I would do the same right now, not without a good reason. I'm short Treasuries though!

    Stupid question to anybody: what does the Fed do with the interest?
