"Everyone in the Room is Selling Volatility": When it Rises, Sell More
Volatility was once just a measure. Now it's an income-generating product. Everyone is selling it says Pennant Capital."We are pretty late in the game," says Alan Fournier, founder of Pennant Capital in an interview with James Grant. Fournier tells Grant about a recent experience in which he made a presentation to a group of pension investors at the request of an investment bank. Following his presentation, Fournier mentioned selling volatility to the host. The host replied "I want you to know t

The "Other" Side of Asymmetry You Never Hear About

Even Mrs. Chris liked her. Of course, our heroes correctly bet against these mortgage backed securities smoking piles of isht and now they all drive Porsches and eat lobsters in their bathrobes.

“This Is Where The Next Financial Crisis Will Come ...
By Zero Hedge In an extensive, must-read report published on Monday by Deutsche Bank’s Jim Reid, the credit strategist unveiled an extensive analysis of the “Next Financial Crisis”, and specifically what may cause it, when it may happen, and how the world could respond assuming it still has means to counteract the next economic and financial crash. In our first take on the report yesterday, we showed one key aspect of the “crash” calculus: between bonds and stocks, global asset prices are the m

How The Fed Really Broke Gold in 2012, along with Everything Else
Keeping it Simple - Soren K. Group authors Vince Lanci, "Fay Dress", and "Bon Scott" for We Can't Know The title implies we can know without a doubt why Gold is dead since 2011. The reasons for Gold's demise cannot be known through deductive methods. To do that we need facts. To get facts we need Government transparency. That isn't happening. So we are left  again with subjective probability which is inductive in nature and leads one to seek facts to confirm a thesis for deductiv

Gold Or Bitcoin Gold AND Bitcoin.
“Gold or Bitcoin?” seems to be an idea, a meme, that is rising to the surface now. People sense that the world’s banking systems are at risk, and are thinking about alternatives. Some people think that the boom in unoccupied, foreign-owned apartments in major cities worldwide is driven by the same urge to own assets outside of banks’ d

Massive Central Bank Asset Purchases: Last Ditch Effort To Save Economy Cap Silver-Gold Prices
The Central banks bought a staggering $1.5 trillion in assets in the first five months of the year to keep the economy from imploding while at the same time, capping the gold price.  Yes, it’s true…. $300 billion a month of Central bank asset purchases pushes up STOCK, BOND and REAL ESTATE values while it depresses or caps the gold (or silver) price.The amount of Central bank asset purchases are now reaching insane levels.  And they have to.  It is the same thing as being a drug addict.  Once, s

Gold a Volatility Play Where’s it Going What Others are Saying
A pair of interesting articles came my way regarding gold. The first is from Incrementum AG. It’s part 11 of a series entitled In Gold we Trust. The second, The Risks of This Low Volatility Environment & What It Means For Gold Prices, is from end Stefan Wieler of Goldmoney via HedgeEye. The HedgeEye article discusses volatility suppression because six major central banks alone have together now purchased nearly 20 trillion dollars in assets, which is equivalent to almost 40% of the combined GD

Why This Market Needs To Crash
Like an old vinyl record with a well-worn groove, the needle skipping merrily back to the same track over and over again, we repeat: Today's markets are dangerously overpriced. Being market fundamentalists who don’t believe it’s possible to simply print prosperity out of thin air, we’ve been deeply skeptical of the financial markets ever since the central banks began their highly interventionist policies. Since 2009, they have unleashed over $12 Trillion in new money into the world, concentratin

Russian Roulette, Central Banks, and Gold - Gary Christenson
Grab your ultra-reliable 357 magnum revolver and load the cylinder with six, not one, rounds of ammunition. Point the gun at your head if you are a member of the struggling middle-class. Imagine pulling the trigger and hoping … Do you feel lucky? The Six Loads of Ammunition for your 357 revolver are: #1: Central banks and commercial banks exert a huge influence over all aspects of our financial lives.

Fed Gets The Accounts Out of Line. Mr. Margin Gets Them in Line
Signs of The Times Perspective This week's harvest of headlines records a lot of hope in the crude oil markets as well as remarkably reckless borrowing. Matched, of course, by the equivalent in lending. All without a regard for how the debt will be serviced. Financial history is at the point where the real power shifts from the Federal Reserve System to Mister Margin. It has many times since 1913 and since the advent of reckless central banking the roles of each side have become v

Will Deutsche Bank collapse the global market
The past year has seen its fair share of worries.  From the China slowdown to the Brexit, successive waves of overseas fear have rolled onto our shores since 2015, yet none of them were the Tsunamis the bears had predicted. The latest foreign fear concerns the possibility for a global credit crisis led by the collapse of a major international bank.  A simplified summary of this scenario goes something like this:  Deutsche Bank is on the brink of bankruptcy and its insolvency could spark a system

  Is It Time to Dump Gold and Buy Platinum
Bob Moriarty explains why precious metals investors may want to look beyond gold to a commodity with a long history and an interesting relationship to the yellow metal. I wrote a book a couple of months ago about some of the basics of investing. The book has done well and it seems to have struck a cord with readers. In the book I try to explain that by listening to the "Experts" investors are doing themselves a disservice. When the "Experts" get it dead

Is It The Cartel’s “zero Hour”
Unquestionably, Jim Rickards is one of the most interesting, and enigmatic, people in the Precious Metals universe.  He first came “onto the scene” as the general counsel for the infamous hedge fund Long-Term Capital Management (talk about an oxymoron); at which, he negotiated the 1998 “bailout” that, in some ways, marked the beginning of the end of the Alan Greenspan fueled bubble.  According to GATA, the most honest, and knowledgeable people on the topic of gold manipulation, “LTCM” wa

Nobody Knows Anything
“Nobody Knows Anything” is a new book written by Bob Moriarty, the proprietor of the web site. It’s close to the book that I would write about investing, but Bob is a better writer than I so it is just as well that he wrote the book before I got around to it. Achieving good returns by trading/investing in the stock market and other financial markets isn’t complicated. While a certain amount of information gathering and historical knowledge is required, achieving good returns has a lo

  Gold Money or Digital Money - Gary Christenson
What Do We Want From Gold? Roosevelt proved that gold was a political/financial tool, and its value is politically governed. Nixon proved two things: that the “Gold Standard” was nothing more than an arbitrary political tool, and indeed he made gold “legally” not money anymore. To make it illegal is an easy step if necessary. Gold is now such a small fraction of the economy I do not think it matters except as an underground currency. Ou

Nasty Shock Prompts Rebound
Signs of The Times - Reuters, February 2. - NYT, February 3. - Rasmusson, February 4. - Bloomberg, February 5. Perspective Well, the polite way of saying it is that the markets have had a "nasty shock". Shocked included lower-grade bonds and bank stocks, particularly European banks. The latter may have had too much faith in Draghi's oft-repeated vows to do "what it takes" to inflate anything that trades. The boast would only appear successful so long as there were enough believers
