    The guy you are talking with has a very creditable market philosophy

    I gave up doing it on my own! I was lucky before the market tanked and I moved all my stuff to safe haven and only lost about 15% vs. the 50 – 75% that a lot of people lost! After that is when I put it in the hands of others!! I don’t know what he does on a daily basis I only know the theory and that way I am not fretting it when I hear something is going wron in the market. But Like I have said, it has been agreed that at the drop of a hat he can pull it all on his gut feeling because we can always go back in if he was wrong!

  • Coffee Steve


    Does your guy invest any in the overseas market? Mine did and advised me very well on them. Those smaller stocks saved my butt more than a few times and not to mention the Asian market is somewhat more steady and reliable.

  • Coffee Steve

    For all you weather buffs out there, the AO (Arctic Oscillation) is going neutral and then going positive, In laymen’s terms after a Warm up this week and a quick cool down Monday and Tuesday, then spring starts in Rats area and Ours mid-week next week and the cool air moves West.

    Some upper 60’s and mid-70’s are coming Rats

    The charts are finally showing a definite change to AO Positive (Negative means colder).

    He has got it spread all over and I know it includes overseas stuff. I used to have a little better grip on it but we split things up prior to the first of the year to get around the Obama screw job so now there are a bunch of smaller chunks. I am an operations and budget guy so as I read through some of it my eyes blur, my nose runs, and my hair starts to fall out and I start to drool! :lol:

  • Coffee Steve


    Last year we already had 89 days 80 and above, this year ZERO 80’s and three days in the 70’s, Hopefully a cooler summer this year

  • Coffee Steve

    9 Days last year 80 or above NOT 89 :-)

  • Ratboy

    I just mentioned to some in the office that we have not had the freak 65 degree day followed by a snowstorm. We had a mild start but once it set in we have not gotten a break. We made it close to 50 a couple of times but with clouds and rain. We have not had the freak warm sunny day when everyone comes out with out coats and wearing shorts!

  • Doug Z

    Coffee and Ratboy

    The Market does not have to fall big. They keep printing money , will keep the market up. When they have to stop we are in trouble. We just need to get us to inflation. The next big problem.

    Ate-Ate-Ate, SSDD. Isn’t anyones fault you’re pro-death.

  • Doug Z


    By the early 1970s, as the costs of the Vietnam War and increased domestic spending accelerated inflation,[3] the U.S. was running a balance-of-payments deficit and a trade deficit. By 1971, America’s gold stock had fallen to $10 billion, half its 1960 level. Foreign banks held many more dollars than the U.S. held gold, leaving the U.S. vulnerable to a run on its gold.[

    I have a friend who watches MSNBC with Maddow his favorite and did not know that the Senate had not passed a budget in four years…real news on MSNBC–let me laugh!

  • Doug Z


    By 1971, the money supply had increased by 10%.[5] In May 1971, West Germany was the first to leave the Bretton Woods system, unwilling to devalue the Deutsche Mark in order to prop up the dollar.[3] In the following three months, this move strengthened its economy. Simultaneously, the dollar dropped 7.5% against the Deutsche Mark.[3] Other nations began to demand redemption of their dollars for gold. France acquired $191 million in gold.[3] Switzerland redeemed $50 million in July.[3] On August 5, 1971, the United States Congress released a report recommending devaluation of the dollar, in an effort to protect the dollar against “foreign price-gougers”.[3] On August 9, 1971, as the dollar dropped in value against European currencies, Switzerland left the Bretton Woods system.[3] The pressure began to intensify on the United States to leave Bretton Woods.

    At the time, the U.S. also had unemployment and inflation rates of 6.1% (Aug 1971)[6] and 5.84% (1971)

  • Doug Z


    bringing on the stagflation of the 1970s and leading to the instability of floating currencies. The dollar plunged by a third during the ’70s, and in 1997 several Asian and Latin countries faced currency crises. Even to the present, Paul Volcker regrets the abandonment of Bretton Woods. “Nobody’s in charge,” Volcker says. “The Europeans couldn’t live with the uncertainty and made their own currency and now that’s in trouble

  • Doug Z


    From 1947 through 1967, the year before the U.S. began to weasel out of its commitment to dollar-gold convertibility, unemployment averaged only 4.7% and never rose above 7%. Real growth averaged 4% a year. Low unemployment and high growth coincided with low inflation. During the 21 years ending in 1967, consumer-price inflation averaged just 1.9% a year. Interest rates, too, were low and stable—the yield on triple-A corporate bonds averaged less than 4% and never rose above 6%.

  • Coffee Steve

    @Doug Z

    I have been against the QE program since its inception, but if there is ANY good that can come from it, it may be it could possibly slow down the rate of inflation if they domino the stoppage of the QE by doing it in smaller amounts and over a period of years, it’s never been tried, but potentially could work.

    Only if no outside or foreign event takes place though.

  • Coffee Steve

    Very good and interesting post Doug on inflation, thank you for them.

    Good afternoon everyone.

    Chinese Solar Panel Giant Declares Bankruptcy

    Chinese solar panel giant Suntech declared bankruptcy last week after it missed a $541 million payment to bondholders.

    Suntech, once the world’s largest solar panel maker, previously received a $2.1 million tax credit from the Obama Administration to open a plant in Arizona. Now, the plant is closing and its 43 jobs are being terminated.
