  • Arena's Belviq Prescriptions Flat Week Over Week [View article]
    These comments are a joke. Take the information for what it is and the limitations of the sources it pulls from. Also, understand how the product is purchased and marketed. This is not a drug that is essential for survival or makes an immediate change over someones health. So if you thought that "fat" people were gonna just swarm pharmacies then you should stop investing cause you will loose it all no matter what you invest in. Also, you guys are taking about weekly data points as being worth their weight in gold.....most people don't even no about the drug or have visited their doctor since it became available. Blockbuster it is not.....but dead in the water it is not either. Leave it at that and give it a rest. Most crazy comments are coming from people who have little or no publications so until you can prove your credibility as an author you have no credibility as an auditor.

  • Is Silver Setting Up For Significant Upside Price Action This Month? [View article]
    The Fed taper should be of high concern for swing trading. Any insight into how this may affect the time frame of the trade or the risk/reward. I feel SLV is a great buy here, but just for arguments sake....

  • Volatility ETFs In A Free Fall: How To Profit [View article]
    Why does your model show VXX being higher when VIX is at 11.0 rather than 11.5?

  • Owners Of The iShares Silver Trust Are A Persistent Bunch [View article]
    I believe that since the crash people who are involved with investing on their own just like the idea of having some investment in precious metals as a type of way to protect their cash from inflation of the long term. I don't think they they are exactly bullish, but rather the type of people that believe before they need the cash or retire that silver will be worth more than their entry point and will just sit on the investment until then.

  • Beware Long-Term Damage From Stock Market Bubble Forming Now [View article]

    I believe you missed his point greatly. Regardless of the market moving in the direction someone predicted, they were still wrong to make a trade that has a low probability of success given the risk/reward did not reflect this lower probability of success. This is a more simple version of what the author already stated, but you seem to be confused considering your reply above says "where you predicted the movements of the market one way or the other." He is not talking about directional movement.

    Do you have any reasoning behind the percentage of pullback or gains in the market or are these just numbers you "feel" sound right?

  • VIX Hits 6 Year Low: 1 Move To Make And 1 To Avoid [View article]
    He is talking about put options in your long positions, not the VIX. Low volitility reduces the prices of option contracts so you can buy puts in the stocks you own for cheap.

  • Arena Breaking Out Ahead Of European Approval [View article]
    The story here is safety. When a doctors reputation is on the line he will recommend the safest drug. Also, ARNA has access to open market share of a huge population of women which VVUS does not. Last, EU is more strict in regulations, but with no issues at all when reviewed by the FDA it is a hard case to make that it won't eventually be accepted for approval. It is just a time race to get the drug to market before they burn to much cash to drive the balance sheet to low.
