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 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 […]

The Yen is Dead Meat

Last week, I begged you, pleaded with you, and even pounded the table to get you to increase your shorts in the Japanese yen (FXY), (YCS), and longs in the Japanese stock market (DXJ). I was certain that Japan’s beleaguered currency was about to break out of its tedious six month trading range and plumb […]

Selling Bonds Again

You all know well my antipathy to the bond market, which I believe hit a 60-year peak on August 18, 2012 at 10:32 AM EST. I managed to catch the exact top of the one-month post taper bond market rally, and sent the Trade Alerts to sell bonds showering upon you. I quickly closed all […]

Watching the Cash Roll In

Today, many followers of the Mad Hedge Fund Trader’s Trade Alert service have up to eight November option spreads expiring at their maximum potential profit. My strategy of taking advantage of the short November expiration calendar and betting that the markets stay in narrow ranges turned out to be wildly successful. At this stage I […]
