Timing The October High And November Bottom Of Dow Jones

Franklin @ December 9, 2007 # 2 Comments

Over the past two months (actually beginning October 1st) I conducted a documented experiment on this site. Although Reuters and other media republished some of the articles, my impression is that this exercise in market timing went completely unnoticed.

Dow Jones 13,252. Not All Clear Yet

Franklin @ November 28, 2007 # 2 Comments

Last Friday I wrote that the Dow Jones was Ready for Next Leg Down. I said that “barring a surprise move from the Federal Reserve next week, the next meaningful movement for the Dow should be below 12,5000“. Today we had the surprise move and the Dow rallied almost 300 points. I will add here […]

Dow Jones Ready for Next Leg Down

Franklin @ November 23, 2007 # 3 Comments

Two weeks ago, when the Dow had fallen about 1000 points, I said that the Dow Jones at 13,099 should see a rest. I expected at least two flat weeks and we had them within less than 1%. As I write this the Dow is at 12,930.24 (0.98% lower than the 13,099 I detected as […]

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 […]

I have $ 100,000,000,000 and yet I can’t retire

Franklin @ September 29, 2007 # 12 Comments

The past week you certainly have (and in the next few weeks you will) read a lot about the dollar and its relation to other currencies. Most of the articles fail to explain what the real value of money is. In some cases, I think, economists just ignore out of convenience what the impact of […]

African-American and Latinos Hardest Hit by Foreclosure Crisis

Franklin @ September 5, 2007 # No Comment Yet

A new Acorn study found that African-Americans and Latinos are the groups hardest hit by foreclosures due to their exposure to high cost home purchase loans. During the past few weeks, politicians and the media have been covering the issue of the foreclosure crisis and in general tended to blame “unscrupulous lenders” or borrowers who […]

Bernanke’s creative solution: Let’s do it again

Franklin @ August 30, 2007 # 8 Comments

According to an AP article dated August 29, Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke proposed the most creative solution to the foreclosure crisis to date: “Let’s do it all over again.” Of course those are not his words, God forbid a Fed Chairman should speak clearly! Instead, he “suggested that policymakers look for ways to encourage […]

Home Prices: Steepest Drop in 20 Years

Franklin @ August 28, 2007 # One Comment

Are you ready to live as a renter in the cul-de-sac you used to own? As home prices keep going down, many homeowners will see that they face negative amortization (they will own more than the house is worth). A rational answer to such a situation (above all, if they cannot afford paying rising interest […]
