Retailers post disappointing November sales – MarketWatch

Franklin @ December 6, 2007 # No Comment Yet

On November 15 I wrote regarding the November retail numbers: If the news is bad, the Fed will feel justified in declaring that the risk of a recession is higher than the risk of inflation, and lower the rates a little bit more. Either way, at this , the end will be the same. There […]

Dow Jones: Announced 2-day Pullback Over

Franklin @ December 5, 2007 # 2 Comments

Monday Update Pullback day one: As I mentioned on Friday, the 2 to 5 day pullback started today. This pullback should be “news driven” and could retrace the four-day rally but not more. As of today (Monday 2 PM) I don’t see any signals pointing to a complete retracement of the rally. Tuesday Update Pullback […]

Dow Jones 13,252. Not All Clear Yet

Franklin @ November 28, 2007 # 2 Comments

Dow Jones Finds A Convoluted Way to Do Nothing

Franklin @ November 15, 2007 # One Comment

Last Friday I wrote that the Dow Jones at 13,099 should see a rest. I pointed out that some statistical barriers had been broken, and that the fall should stop around there. I was wrong by 0.6%, but not much more. And then, on Tuesday, we had this huge run rally of some 300 points. […]

In Shift, Spitzer Is Expected to Back a Federal ID – New York Times

Franklin @ October 27, 2007 # 2 Comments

Pressure to limit the Bill of Rights’ provisions, push them into oblivion, or otherwise ignore them keeps mounting. It is not a matter of Democrats or Republicans, there are people on both parties that vehemently refuse attacks on our liberties, as there are those who either don’t care or expect to benefit themselves.

Dow Jones 400 to 600 more points of pain

Franklin @ October 22, 2007 # 3 Comments

You read here on October 12 that the Dow Jones was in for some pain (http://services.thebankruptcynews.com/blog/?p=70). We said that “The Wall Street sponsored media should start next week pandering bad news and creating a climate of fear using the available examples of very bad October markets. Expect myriads of articles about 1929 and 1987.” The […]
