  • It's the dreaded "impossible trinity."

    One lesson i've learned so far, and which underlies all my investments is, "don't fight the fed." Does Ben know what he is doing? I don't know, but i"m playing it his way.

  • The 10-year Treasury yield's early move in 2013 to threaten 2% could be another fake-out, says Bespoke. The quick jump higher looks like any number of other moves over the past year, and the higher yields have always brought in buyers (the Fed?) to quickly drive them back down.  [View news story]
    Good point. So far in my investing & trading, I have found it unprofitable to fight the fed. They seem to be holding all the Aces. At least so far.
