Fool’s Gold

July 26, 2017

As markets have reached my upper market risk price zone (see also: Playing with Fire & The Final Wave) I wanted to share some larger structural observations with readers. Note the backdrop of volatility at record lows, markets seemingly rising every day and people being bullish as dips no longer exist. All this fits in with a… Read More ›

World War III

You can’t see the bombs, you can’t see the casualties, and you can’t see the headlines, but World War III is already in full progress.  And no, I’m not talking North Korea, Iran, or Syria or any other countries with minuscule military budgets in comparison to the US that are often hyped to be a… Read More ›

The Ghosts of Time

Emma Morano died yesterday. Over 7.5 billion people currently alive on this planet didn’t know her at all. At the end she was a historical curiosity as she was the last remaining person known to have been born in the 1800’s. A stark reminder that time knows no mercy. All our time is limited and each… Read More ›

And don’t cry outrage over Donald Trump, he’s merely the messenger riding the wave for his own purposes. Look at what… Read More ›

Market Bull

Just before the US election I wrote an article musing about this bull market being a myth and promptly markets dropped lock limit down on the night of the election below November 2014 highs. It seemed my supposition was right on the money, but then, as we all know, markets raced to new highs following the election. Was my… Read More ›


Our country, whether people are willing to admit it or not, has deep structural problems that require deep thinking and broad support to solve them. For decades both parties have presided over the emergence of these structural problems and their only solution has always been to throw more debt at it. I said it before… Read More ›

How is this better?

I have no idea if, or in what form, the new healthcare bill will pass, or if whatever passes will make it through the Senate. But whatever ultimately gets passed I think the fair question to ask is this: How is this better? While the current political climate does not seem conducive to any fact… Read More ›
