Low Volatility Can Be Tough For Bulls and Bears

Low Volatility Can Be Tough For Bulls and Bears

Markets have been under the guise of low volatility as seen in the VIX since this gauge started trending down in early February, and once it broke the 200 ma (see the chart) it has been grinding between 12 and 16.5.  That is somewhat normal around this time period, and we have seen spikes in volatility sold off before the end of the trading session (noted on the chart).  Usually, low...

He must wait -- not in listless idleness but in constant, steady, cheerful endeavours, always willing and fulfilling and accomplishing his task, that when the occasion comes he may be equal to the occasion. Henry Wadsworth Longfellow  Central bankers wanted to put the fear of God into the masses and to a large degree they have succeeded in doing so;...

Treasury Watch

--Several news sources are coincidentally citing debt levels.  WSJ has a big chart outlining consumer debt levels in the US, warning that risks are growing.  However, the household debt obligation ratio is not flashing any warning signals as of now.  In the US the problem is likely to come from the corporate sector, where non-fin corp debt is near a 30 year high at 45% of GDP (Daily Shot). ...

Should I Buy Apple Stock (AAPL)?

Should I Buy Apple Stock (AAPL)?

Several weeks ago I wrote about buying Apple (AAPL) after the stock suffered a fifteen percent price plunge due to concerns over slowing Chinese growth.

I had received many emails and comments regarding this call which suggested I was on the wrong side of the...

Profit From Sell-Off In the Yen
