February 7 - Biggest Day of My Trading Career

February 06, 2014 – Comments (8) | RELATED TICKERS: GE , TBT , AAPL

I have traded through the market crash of October 1987, February 2009 and several other very interesting days.  But I think tomorrow may well be the biggest day of my trading career.  It will be a one-of-a-kind event, that could never have happened in the past and may never happen in the future.  [more]



Unemployment NOW at Pre-Obama Levels . . . we just don't know it yet!

We'll know much more Friday, but here's the story you HAVEN'T heard in the news.  Unemployment under 26 weeks is NOW at Pre-Obama Levels.  Why is that significant?  Logic dictates when you pay people to be unemployed beyond 26 weeks (and up to 99 weeks), a chunk of the population will take full advantage of the free moeny.  Note what happens between 2008 and 2010 - granted, the unemployment < 26 weeks is up - about 17.4% - but the LONG-TERM unemployement skyrockets 264%!!  What changed?  We started paying folks to be on long-term unemployment, up to 99 weeks.  This started to taper in 2011 and was officially cut off at the end of last year.  You see THAT "Tapering" (more on Fed Tapering, later :-) up to the 2013 numbers, but you'll see it drop WAY off beginning Friday, with January's report, and further in February's report next month.   [more]
