Re: 15-Nov-16 World View -- Bulgaria and Moldova elect pro-Russian presidents, turning away from EU

There are a couple of things you are missing John, but then again, I have been away for awhile. The cable leaks published by WikiLeaks reveals the US state department and CIA were behind the mess in Ukraine and Syria. Assad is definitely an SOB, but there is much more to that mess than just Assad. T...

Only a group of morons would watch what Japan did and repeat it and expect it to work. There is a lot more than meets the eye though. Japan was kept afloat by excess credit in the US, but at the same time, excess US credit built China, which created a new competitor to Japan. Artificial rates for ca...

Re: Financial topics

John that article was written by Charles Hugh Smith on the site Of Two Minds. In it he shows the chart as a broadening pattern, which is very bearish. As far as the earnings in the prior post? Don't forget earnings have gone to zero in the interval and I would examine the multi-trillions in bonds is...

Re: 24-Jun-14 World View -- Egypt's Kangaroo Court

Not only will some generation not buy into the stock market at these prices, the market itself will collapse under the weight of the debt taken on by corporations to inflate their own stocks. Plus, there is now more margin debt than there is extra money in accounts. The idea of cash on the sidelines...

The US might not recover from this administration. We are like an old pit bull with no teeth. The last President that made this big a mess of foreign policy was Jimmy Carter. We were lucky he lasted only 1 term. Not so lucky this time.

Re: 10-Aug-13 World View -- Israeli drone strike in Sinai

John, note who they are throwing in jail? The Indians on the bottom, not the chiefs. I was here when the S&L's blew in the 1980's. They threw about everyone they could in jail. How was I to know?

Re: 10-Aug-13 World View -- Israeli drone strike in Sinai

I spent several years in the mortgage business, but got out. I knew some guys doing mortgages back in the mid 2000's, some of whom were making good money working for Countrywide. I informed them they were peddling junk, but they insisted they had good investors. I warned them one day they would come...

Southern Gentleman, I don't buy that at all. They had HFT in 2008 and it did nothing, but lead to a collapse. HFT jumps in front of bids and asks, when the market allows them to sell or buy back at an immediate profit and little else. Most of the bids aren't even real. It produces stuff like the fla...

John, why else would all this fictional nonsense be repeated over and over again. The more I study, the more I understand oligarchs took control of the US education system roughly 100 years ago and made it self serving to them. We are now managed by economists whose only solution is to continually b...

The reason the market is falling apart is not that Bernanke is going to stop QE. The banking system didn't need any more money before he started this latest round. Speculators need the buying pressure it creates, as more and more capital is trapped in cash. In any event, various bubbles around the w...
