using firefox a while back when the boards format changed I looked in the history and this message board came up...........I put this site in the bookmarks and it comes back in this format,,,,,,,,I did the same with a few other pages and they always appear.. you can go back into the history (if you havent wiped it out) click and save and put it into bookmarks........you do this for every page you have visited and wish to scan or post..
when you hear the term "trickle down" as "failed policy" from some leftys mouth, investors must run for the hills, but as they flee the income redistribution crowd, their goal of higher taxes, and greater government programs, investors MUST stock up on gold and treasuries.
"and merely the (now failed) hope that “trickle down” still works. The outcome has been almost unprecedented levels of rising inequality in the global economy..." Less
watch the elections folks, as hillary rises, pog and treasuries will rocket,.
what is it you say doesnt work? maybe what markets are saying is brexit works, and that votes demanding independence for britain works and it is GOVERNMENT doesnt work. growth is dead, not because of the fed or low rates, but failure of government to spur growth via low taxes, less debt, and far fewer regulations. the brexit is a buy, markets love it (contrary to the administration, the eu, hillary, and the "elites"
musicmastro trolls the boards with tons of aliases.........rubenstein is another, its all garbage. maybe hes paid to do this ***t.
someone is always there to pick up what remains of the market, this is for the quick buck, but it is fool that is positive for markets for the longer term.. to dump on the fed is odd though, there was 2008 massive housing/banking crash and it was politics, free houses for votes, guaranteed paid by USA taxpayer the precipitating factor, the fed was faced with avoiding depression......but obama and company might well be grinning ear to ear, they have succeeded in change. soon if not sooner though, the "middle class boomer" get clocks cleaned, but THEY are responsible for being asleep these past 20 years.
but though the index is sharply dropping the price of homes keeps rising while demand is great, keeping the economy going through enhanced rise in personal wealth.. can this continue?
"National economic index drops sharply as factories slowed:
3-month average of -0.36 is weakest reading since August 201........
Russ Koesterich, managing director and head of asset allocation with BlackRock, routinely comments on this release, saying it “has historically correlated with economic activity one to two quarters ahead.”
“In other words, it won’t provide much information on what the economy will do a year hence, but it has historically done a decent job of signaling an imminent recession,” he said.
think so? but more important is election here and the economic implications of what awaits usa. higher taxes, more spending, greater "wealth" redistribution? , this might not take an economy down in prosperous times but as catalyst today? even if hundreds billions go to roads and bridges, and cash is brought back from overseas, will markets buy it. the sell off or (buy in) soon will be determined.. unless it can be afforded (mho) risk is avoided.
profit taking would be when conservative (pro growth) government becomes our next administration.
therefore expect more of the same, with business, corporations waiting for the above.
liberal administrations need higher taxes, paying constituents voting them into power, (free healthcare, education, housing, etc etc etc) and cash must come from ? can you say more stagnation.
it seems bonds are a longer term buy today since the necessary changes in fiscal policy are not even discussed....ie........the golden bond posted earlier.
but this is overt, not closet thinking...success of capitalism never was the prime objective, or consideration of liberalism...democats are populations of liberals who are believing that redistribution of wealth, not value (or saving) retirement dollars is important, certainly for their constituents..the debt is unimportant rather more debt is issued and favors granted, (while smart people realizing they are being played for suckers get tax laws written excluding themselves from paying up). democrats realize homes, owned by most people, are the ONE factor keeping them thriving, so long as free houses bring everyone into the mix and tax cushions keep house wealth continually rising, few people care about saving or investment. markets just might be beginning to factor in the negatives of the past eight years (and the preceding eight) and with an ominous (non capitalism friendly) election nearing, markets are hunkering down.
theres no alarm buttons to push out there? cnbc I saw interview with Arnott, investment research etc,
agitated by negative rates world over, very concerned that it is business that should take risk that capitalism should do what it is supposed to do and NOT basement negative rates kept what he terms artifically low because of not very "wise men" He stated capital spending and business investment is the way out of stagnation. if this is the future for usa where business refuses to invest in economy incapable of sustaining the value of the investment and cash gone is perceived to be cash lost then we have miles to go before some equilibrium is reached, there was no mention of fiscal policy, government encouraging investments via low taxes, fewer regulations, leaving few options or alternative places for cash.. for individuals it is homes and house flipping, for ceo's necessarily wiser than politicians or the administration, the realization that "free houses" are not free at all, that hard earned corporate cash gone to hopes and dreams will in the end take business down either through bankruptcy or involuntary take over, this is the ultimate capital expense known as failure.
worse, (MHO) are indications of elections here and overseas. growth is not coming back HERE anytime soon, hunkering down is the word.
you have to love it if you are bond positive...and to boot there was market election analyst cnbc this am stating
markets lead election results..... with equity prices rising (he states) markets are calling for more of the same (repeat of current adminsitration policies).......and that perceptions of more of the same, far more infrastructure spending, more government policies of wealth redistribution...is market positive, the rise in price of gold he states is mere aberration, it is only the "little people" driving prices higher, the smart money those having power is selling the strength...... then we hear santelli discussing proposed expansion of medicare into the 50 year old population with one of the original framers of the bill but with just an inkling of the enormous costs involved and a pesky congress involved, then that case approaching scotus where certain states deny that the bill as written forces states to pick up the costs of medicaid gone affordable care when the bill never would have passed unless those having objection (states) could opt out
with the rest of the wagon pulling world having near zero growth,and estimates constantly revised downwards, bond yields are only reflecting the negativity, the denial of failure of policies past present and now contemplated as positive for the future rather this may be reason to buy MORE treasurys (and gold). we will see how markets evaluate our (and the worlds) future as elections near,
but I disagree about the no clue, thing is wall street is liberal, always was, but Reagan showed the way....it was far lower taxes made the difference for starters. A. Greenspan told it clearly a few weeks ago interviewed on cnbc, far too much government spending, debt....this takes from economic growth therefore business hunkers down saving expenses and cash. business leaves usa for other lands thinking it better to remain viable and competitive for another day...wall street believes in redistribution of wealth, but business cannot survive behaving likewise. sure, if the economy was strong (like with Clinton because of REAGAN) you can give free houses away, but, as M Haines on cnbc spoke once with candor, those "liar" loans were outrageous.
you guys on the short side getting clocks cleaned today, I scanned the yahoo headlines yesterday looking at the article from investopedia,.......the etf breakouts rsx tlt... and added a little more tmf as hedge to long positions...
investment never is the goal of liberals .......liberals never concern with "risky" plays in the stock mket, communism HATED the stock market.....you see this in demands for redistribution of wealth it is taking from people paid too much raising wages,and taxes, granting more government programs encouraging more people living off the state, it is encouraging more immigration legal and illegal automatically granted cash from taxpayers, encouraging MORE to come.... voting more lefty changing the entire course of the country... the stock market is VALUELESS to the liberal, investors are not lefty voters, the numbers of individuals or families invested in stocks is at multi year lows...however, it is lefties began programs of housing granted freely without means of paying for them under the term of community development guaranteed by taxpayer that near brought the country down... the negativity of the entire business community is astonishing, the numbers of companies planning capital spending is still declining.... near 70 percent are not the bashing of corporate america and drug companies is only the beginning.
risk is OFF, but most, the great majority of people already are OUT, however flipping of houses is ON and bonds are a BUY.
Iron ore prices sink to 10-week lows, following data showing stockpiles at Chinese ports had reached more than 100M metric tons.....major producers downgrading guidance for 2017. prices dropped over 25 percent this past month.,
and didnt cnbc just bring two analysts, one value, one technical, and both said possibility of correction is real. 35 percent in a couple days sounds harsh, but 5 or 10? my question is .........is the tlt a buy or strong buy?
