August 29, 2018 | How Trump Turns on The Fed

POITOU, FRANCE – The U.S. economy… all $20 trillion of it… explained in a single tweet (any similarity between this and one you might get from the president of the United States of America is pure coincidence): Just look at the Dow (near an all-time high)… and unemployment (near an all-time low)… The tax cuts […]

August 29, 2018 | Smoke & FIRE

Brittany’s 28, married, pregnant, rents, has an inuksuk tat on her forearm and two degrees. “We want to retire in seven years,” she said in our meeting. After I’d mopped up the coffee exiting my nose, we continued. Perhaps she had a million or two coming from her mom. Was that the plan? But, nope, […]

August 28, 2018 | EU Considering Requiring a Broadcaster License to have YouTube Channel

While in the US some people have discovered that running a YouTube Channel can get you in trouble with the law. One many found himself in Georgia with being charged with running a business without a license even though he was not selling anything just offering his opinion. Of course, there are two licensing options […]

August 28, 2018 | Prices can be Controlled with an Algorithm and Source Code!

Most of our trading today is done using algorithms as the means of execution. When I buy a stock an algorithm executes the trade in milliseconds and when I sell a stock an algorithm executes the trade automatically. Human market makers do not need to execute any trades today. Algorithms operate automatically as we trade and […]

August 28, 2018 | Why Trump Wasn’t Invited to McCain’s Funeral

POITOU, FRANCE – Yesterday, the Nasdaq set a new record. So did the S&P 500… From CNBC: Stocks ended sharply higher Monday as the United States and Mexico closed a new trade deal.

August 28, 2018 | Now is the Time to Prepare for Profits in the New Energy Paradigm

I’m on the record saying that there’s a lot of money to be made speculating on the world’s adoption of a new energy paradigm. Since becoming an energy metals bull, all of them except uranium have dropped in price. Does this change my outlook? No. Markets fluctuate. Metals markets do so with gusto. It’s par […]

August 28, 2018 | Let The Emerging Market Bailouts Begin: “We Don’t Have Much Choice”

To understand why Europe is watching Turkey’s financial crisis with alarm, you just have to see this chart: Spanish – and to a lesser extent French and Italian – banks have lent a lot of money to Turkey. So as that country spins closer to default, those banks and their governments are in danger of […]

August 28, 2018 | When China Yields to Trump, Stocks Will REALLY Soar

The Dow’s 259-point rally Monday on good Nafta news was just chicken scratch compared to what will happen if China comes around on tariffs. It’s not a done deal, to be sure, but things are not nearly so hopeless as the mainstream media would have us believe. China has stacked the deck heavily in its […]

August 28, 2018 | When Diversification Doesn’t Spread Your Risk

The financial business lives to churn out products for mass consumption, and they are excellent at selling them to us.  The trouble for buyers is that they tend to be different-wrapped packages of the same highly correlated securities, and so the appearance of diversity is one of form over content. While rising capital inflows tend […]

August 28, 2018 | No Easy Choice

Pete asked me this week about dollar-cost averaging after he got a honkin’ big refund from the CRA for moving expenses. “Man, they took forever to respond,” he says, “but now I have this money and wanted to ask you if I should invest it in chunks to avoid making a mistake.” DCA, of course, […]

August 27, 2018 | US Yield-Curve Looks Hell-Bent on Inverting, “Flattest” Since Aug 2007

How does it compare to German, Japanese, and Chinese yield curves? On Friday, the US Treasury 2-year yield rose to 2.63% and the 10-year yield remained at 2.82%. This squeezed the spread between them to just 19 basis points, the lowest since August 2007. This is a further step in the “flattening yield curve,” where […]

August 27, 2018 | Is Tunisia the Next Emerging Market to Implode?
