one trade does not make or break a trader. TLT to 150? Sounds likely. The day it hits 149 or so I sell then the next day ill start a tbt position. GL
The progressive(too funny) party still controls 75% of the media. That alone give the left a 10% starting lead. Poll results vs outcome are usually 3% spreads. Whats to dislike of either candidate? Media( not Fox was openly reporting about Hillary having like ability. Trump has massive issues with educated white females. It usually comes down to who shows up. I live in a state that has always voted for the dem pres, always. My vote rarely means much. This time the results will be close and perhaps DC will take notice.
I spent a fair amount of time at work trying to consider unintended consequences' of solutions given to customers. Most of the time it was easy due to limited variables. Policing compliance is a rabbit hole. Too many players and not enough resources. Relying on big business to behave doesn't work all the time. It really depends on corporate leadership and the perceived pain in getting caught. The really big bank must feel like the are to big to get punished, much.
The two areas of high risk loans right now are education and auto's. Banks and congress caused this and Dodd Frank is hurting the industry. The pendulum swings. The answer to the banks problems are not that easy. They clearly will run amuck if they can. Congress also made lots of mistakes. Banking commitee leadership at the time of 2008 was horrid. Apparently too much money being made to pay attention to proper business practice.
Sounds like risk is not your cup o tea. As of this morning DB is down .60/share or so. DB really is a bet on whether or not the massive US fine sticks. It sounds like if it does then DB is gone. Place your bets.
Banks made lots of mistakes in the years leading up to 2008 collapse. The pendulum has swung and now they are over regulated. Greed does strange things to people. Read up.
What might make a serious difference is late endorsements. Those that got beat have less angst towards the Donald. I still think he's a walking talking blowbag but can be trained to behave. The Hill already knows everything and it aint pretty.
Ill take a look at the close to see if vxx is worth another look all depends on trading. Tuesday morning should be interesting depending on how the "debate" goes. Id like to see PM's disconnect from the SPX etc. Im starting to doubt that they will raise in December.
The numbers will be shocking......mind blowing. I think we are already there. China had debt to gdp of 250%. Besides someday and maybe and blah blah blah, what to you have there buzzy? Too much time and not much money I suspect.
Manufacturing employment is not considered important anymore. Stock buyback have skewed the notion of a p/e. This will work its way out.
When Randorn admits that he may make a mistake now and then aapl wont have anything to do. Most jobs in the workplace are those that measure a persons performance by how few mistakes they make. What good enough is open for interpretation. Some jobs measure a person on what they accomplish. Whichever way your job is there is always room by some power to interpret you goodness. I wonder if aapl has ever been wrong or inaccurate of just plain stupid? We will never know.
I got a chance to talk to a manager at my last employer. Things are not good in manufacturing. Some are down 40%(like in 2008-2009). Others are only -10% yoy. If everything is moving together then some of the money is wrong. Every time I think they are running out of time they make another rally. So it goes until it doesn't.
