At the Cusp of Accuracy

June 08, 2009 – Comments (7)

This is a post just to say "this character is at the cusp of accuracy" where making bad moves shows up really quickly and negatively impacts the ranking.  I'd also like to add that the latest changes made to the portfolio reflects in my ranking so I feel they are the right moves for now.  So on that note if you are a player who's accuracy is buried high and so is your score, if you you need to make changes to your portfolio you won't get as clear a signal as I have.  So i'm willing to sacrifice accuracy to a certain extend because I know in the long run that won't matter as much in caps.  [more]

Are 401k loans a problem?

June 02, 2009 – Comments (0)

Forget innings fellas.  This is about a long and drawn out deleveraging period which may last multiple decades.  The debt wasn't a problem before but the theory that the banks and shund this debt to the public sector is a fantasy because there are no buyers of the debt.  Once the government debt sales start the next shock will be the auction failures.  This is going to create a shock in the interest rate derivatives cluster buck we are in.  [more]
