Send Me Your Ideas

The Diary of a Mad Hedge Fund Trader is now approaching its seventh year of publication. During this time, I have religiously been pumping out 1,500 words a day, or eight double spaced typed pages, of original, independent minded, hard hitting, and often wickedly funny research. I’ve been covering stocks, bonds, commodities, precious metals, real […]

Revisiting the First Silver Bubble

With smoke still rising from the ruins of the recent silver crash, I thought I’d touch base with a wizened and grizzled old veteran who still remembers the last time a bubble popped for the white metal. That would be Mike Robertson, who runs Robertson Wealth Management, one of the largest and most successful registered […]

The Shutdown is Over….For Now

After 16 days of high drama, bluster, and handwringing, the Great Washington Shutdown of 2013 is finally over. President Obama held fast and won. The Republicans kept changing their goals by the day and lost. But what we got was anything but a resolution. The next shutdown is now scheduled for January 15, and the […]

European Style Homeland Security

The English are feeling the pinch in relation to recent events in Libya, and have therefore raised their security level from “Miffed” to “Peeved.” Soon, though, security levels may be raised yet again to “Irritated” or even “A Bit Cross.” The English have not been “A Bit Cross” since the blitz in 1940, when tea […]

Dogs of the Dow Revisited

Sitting at my lakefront estate at Lake Tahoe’s Incline Village, I began to cogitate on what my trading portfolio for 2014 should look like. Then I thought, “Why wait?” Better to get the message out now than wait two and a half more months. The entry point for risk assets is better now than it […]

Please Use My Free Data Base Search

The original purpose of this letter was to build a database of ideas to draw on in the management of my hedge fund. When a certain trade comes into play, I merely type in the symbol, name, currency, or commodity into the search box, and the entire fundamental argument in favor of that position pops […]

Onshoring Takes another Great Leap Forward

Have you tried to hire a sewing machine operator lately? I haven’t, but I have friends running major apparel companies who have (guess where I get all those tight fitting jeans?) Guess what? There aren’t any to be had. Since, 1990, some 77% of the American textiles workforce has been lost, when China joined the […]

The Bull Market in Mustangs

Sitting here in the Silver State of Nevada, high in the Sierras, I feel obliged to comment on a bull market of a different sort. The Western US has found a new wrinkle in the housing collapse, where homeowners are desperately struggling to cut living costs to meet the next doubling of their adjustable rate […]
