Gold Chatter

Franklin @ May 22, 2010 # 4 Comments

Image via Wikipedia There is a lot of chatter about gold these days. Gold lost around 5% since May 12 and the chatter box is running wild with explainers. Here it is, yet, another explainer. There is nothing to see folks. Gold was overextended and it entered a correction period. These corrections can go from […]

Despite Risks, Workers Guzzle Company Stock – WSJ.com

Franklin @ August 12, 2009 # 2 Comments

Image via Wikipedia What can I say? Companies found the ultimate bag holder? Next week I will write an article about when the Obama administration will finally stop talking down the economy. Hint, it won’t be before we all are crying uncle. I think I understand the cunning ways of this administration. I may even […]

Some Historical Perspective on the Current Recession

Franklin @ January 2, 2009 # 7 Comments

Image via Wikipedia Back in 2007, a simple device allowed me to pin-point the start of the current recession on the fourth quarter of 2007.

Franklin @ February 14, 2008 # 7 Comments

Black Swans, Bell Curves and Stagflation

Franklin @ December 19, 2007 # 2 Comments

This is not the promised article about the stupidity of black swans. This is an article about how we tend to focus our attention on the odd, rather than the mundane. I guess some talking head mentioned stagflation, because the previous article on the subject received unusual attention. People are hitting the site searching for […]

Bad News For the Dow (Short Term Bear Fest)

Franklin @ October 12, 2007 # 4 Comments

As I write this, the Dow is 47 points up. I would expect it to close down for today. Yesterday was a key reversal day, a technical signal traders pay a lot of attention to. A Key Reversal Day is when the market makes a new high, reverses and closes below the previous low. If […]
