    David: Do you think that observing real interest rates de facto tightening began about 18 months ago or thereabouts...what are your thoughts? An article on negative interest rate and its implication would be helpful for me at least.

    RDM: True, the March 1937 bear market may be an outlier, but so may this time. Just be vigilant.

  • Stocks Shaken By Black Swan Of The Fed's Own Making  [View article]
    The real issue here is not the correct usage of the term Black Swan but rather that we have a Fed Chair that stated she is data dependent and then proceeded to predict the future rather than letting the data speak. There is no way the future indicators supported the rate increase and continued jawboning about more.

    I was born and raised in the mountains of Tennessee and Kentucky and we didn't go around shooting other people's windows out, so who was really "backwards" and at wrong here?

  • Pure Insanity In Market Sentiment  [View article]
    Sofaking you nailed it. Volatility, cyclicality, or whatever you want to call it has always been with us. Accept and be smart with hedges and dry powder. That is a lesson I am trying to get through my hard heart and to my buy/sell fingers.

  • 5 Huge Misunderstandings About The Current Investing Environment  [View article]
    Only time will tell if bargain or value trap, but many in this thread are talking about the author or his points as if he is a dolt and the interpretation implausible. No person knows what the market is going to do over the next twelve months, but be aware of the alternative view.

    Milton Friedman. MV=PI: The quantity of money, say M3, multiplied times the velocity of money (how many times it is turned over in the economy) is equal to the product of the general price level times the output.
    This implies that the author is correct about the effect of low gasoline prices on the macro-economy. The amount of money doesn't change, the velocity may even decrease. The same amount of money just sloshes around different in the economy and creates dislocations in varied ways.
