All I Want To Do is Retire

I have always believed that if you don’t have a sense of humor, then you better get the hell out of this business. Below is a link to a YouTube video entitled “All I Want To Do is Retire” which covers the decline of the brokerage industry over the last 20 years. The video is […]

Covering Shorts in the Euro

This short position has been a total home run of a trade, with the Euro going into freefall when the ink was barely dry on the Trade Alert. Rumors swept the foreign exchange pits this morning of a potential interest rate cut by the European Central Bank next week, which they really should have done […]

Watch Out for the Chihuahua Glut

Recently, I wrote about the Nevadan wrinkle in the housing crisis where distressed homeowners are letting their horses go wild to make their mortgage payment. Now neighboring California is facing a Chihuahua glut, where evicted homeowners are handing over their pets to animal shelters. The diminutive Mexican canine enjoyed a boom in popularity in recent […]

No surprise here, as both the Mad Hedge Fund Trader and the Mad Day Trader nailed the market’s reaction well in advance with a profusion of timely […]

My Take on Obamacare

So much BS is flying about over the Obamacare issue that I can’t resist the temptation to put in my two cents worth. There was no chance this was going to work on day one, and I warned senior administration officials as much on many different occasions. Even the Massachusetts health care plan only saw […]

When Great Minds Think Alike

The ticker tape lagged the market by two hours, and the newly bankrupt were jumping out of downtown windows. I remember it like it was yesterday. Well […]

The Run in Bonds is Over

This is a bet that the ten-year Treasury bonds, now trading at a 2.50% yield, don’t fall below 2.40% over the next 14 trading days. It has to make this move on top of an unbelievable decline in yields from 3.0% to 2.50% since September. And it has to do it quickly. The Federal Reserve […]
