Taking Profits on Citigroup

I have discovered a correlation in the market that you can use for the rest of this year, for all of 2014, and probably for the next 20 years. Whenever the Treasury bond market (TLT) takes a dive, bank shares rocket. This is a particularly happy discovery, as my model-trading portfolio is long bank shares […]

Watch Out for the Jobs Trap

We are about to get some wild, seasonal gyrations to the jobs numbers, and I think you will be well advised to know about them in advance. A large part of our economy is moving online more rapidly than most people and governments realize. According to ComScore, a marketing data research firm, online sales leapt […]

Watch Those Monetary Aggregates!

Call me a nerd, but instead of spending my Sundays watching football, I pour over data analyzing the monetary aggregates. That’s a tough thing to say for someone whose dad was a lineman on the University of Southern California’s legendary 1947 junior varsity football team. This is so I can gain insights into the future […]

Cashing In On Obamacare

Not a day, an hour, or a minute goes by without the media blasting at me about how terrible Obamacare is. I wondered, how terrible can it be? There’s got to be a trade in there somewhere. After intensively researching several industries I concluded that the investment opportunities created by the president’s signature legislative accomplishment […]

The Flash Crash Risk is Rising

Those who lived through the cataclysmic “flash crash” that occurred precisely at 2:45 pm EST on May 6, 2010, have been dreading a replay ever since. Their worst nightmares may soon be realized. That is when the Dow Index (INDU) dropped a gob smacking 650 points in minutes, wiping out nearly $1 trillion in market […]

Mad Hedge Fund Trader Melts Up to 56.4% 2013 Performance

I sit here painfully typing this letter, as my fingertips have been worn down to bloody stumps. I have been pounding out the Trade Alerts since the month started, sending out 37, and the month is only half over. That works out to a 3.3636 Trade Alerts a day! I have been so busy that […]

The Market Takes a Break

I often use my own profit and loss statement as a leading market indicator. Whenever I am blessed with a windfall profit, it is frequently time to sell. On those rare occasions when I take a big hit, it is invariably time to buy. This is one of those times. Since November 1, the Trade […]

The Mystery of the Brasher Doubloon

I’ll never forget when my friend, Don Kagin, one of the world’s top dealers in rare coins, walked into the gym one day and announced that he made $1 million that morning.  I enquired “How is that, pray tell?” He told me that he was an investor and technical consultant to a venture hoping to […]

CHINESE REFORMS WILL SEND US STOCKS SKYWARD – Update

The Chinese government has announced the most revolutionary changes to its economy in nearly four decades. The implications for global stock markets are hugely positive, and until now, under appreciated. The Middle Kingdom’s state controlled media, never prone to hyperbole, are calling it “a new historical starting point.” Chinese stocks have rocketed since word of […]

Rubbing Shoulders with “The 1%” at Incline Village

If you really want to get a read on how “the 1%” are faring these days, take a ski vacation to the tony hamlet of Incline Village on the pristine shores of Nevada’s Lake Tahoe. Each morning, I trekked to Starbucks, one of the few local sources for the Wall Street Journal and the New […]
