When Mad Day Trader, Jim Parker, told me he was up 292% over the past seven months, I didn’t believe him. The value of a nominal $1,000 investment would have to have increased to $3,124. “It’s too good to be true,” I thought. Nobody will believe it. Even my own customer support people said it […]
The world is about to suffer an acute shortage of equity capital over the next eight years, which could total $12.3 trillion. That is the conclusion of the McKinsey Global Institute, an affiliate of McKinsey &Co., a great well of long-term economic thinking which I have been drawing from for the last 40 years. The […]

The Mad Hedge Fund Trader is taking a much-needed break for the next few days to take Turkey with the expanded family in Portland, Oregon. The Trade Alerts have been going out so fast and furious that it is all starting to become a blur to me. I am going to draw the line at […]

If demographics is destiny, then America’s future looks bleak. At least, that is the inevitable conclusion if demographics is your only consideration. I have long been a fan of demographic investing, which creates opportunities for traders to execute on what I call “intergenerational arbitrage”. When the numbers of the middle aged are falling, risk markets […]

I was amazed to see the Dow Average open up only 60 points this morning, and oil to fall a mere $1.50, given the enormous long term implications of a real nuclear deal with Iran. Over the decades, I have noticed that Wall Street isn’t very good at analyzing international political matters and the implications […]
This is my 14th consecutive closing Trade Alert, and the 20th including my remaining profitable open positions. I have only six more to go until a break my previous record of 25. It doesn’t get any better than this. The yen is now in free fall, and the Japanese stock market is going ballistic, as […]

The performance of the Mad Hedge Fund Trader’s Trade Alert Service is still going ballistic, falling just short of a 60% gain for the year last week. Every new subscriber since September has seen 100% of their trades turn profitable. This is your classic “shooting fish in a barrel” market. I know guys my age […]
I have always been a big fan of buying a dollar for 30 cents. That appears to be the opportunity now presented by the Japanese software giant, Softbank (SFTBY). This gorilla of the Internet space was founded and run by my old friend, Masayoshi Son, who many refer to as a combination of the Jeff […]

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 […]
