Another View of Risk

November 30, 2009 – Comments (3)

Like I was mentioning in my last post (A Look at a Few Gold Ratios / A Few Words on Risk), the risk environment is rising.   [more]



A Look at a Few Gold Ratios / A Few Words on Risk

November 30, 2009 – Comments (3)

I have talked about gold ratios and their importance several times in the past (The Gold Blog. Gold/Silver/GSMs (and a little Oil for good measure), Thoughts on the Dow/Gold Ratio, etc.). It is important to look at the performance of asset classes not only in nominal terms (all US assets are bought and paid for in Federal Reserve Notes (aka the US Dollar) and so everything has an exchange rate whether you are consciously aware of it or not. e.g. 1150 FRNs (or $) / Maytag Neptune Front Load Washing Machine (item)) but in terms of other currencies (765 EUR / Maytag Neptune Front Load Washing Machine (item)), most especially gold (1oz Gold / Maytag Neptune Front Load Washing Machine (item)).  [more]



If I had a NIKKel for ....

November 29, 2009 – Comments (7)

Wow binv, those are some really bad puns you are coming up with.

I showed my long term NIKKEI count back in September (Long Term Count of NIKKEI), and last week I showed a chart update on several Asian indices (Another Look at a Few Asian Markets).  [more]



HSI...I...I...I am appalled

November 27, 2009 – Comments (7)

Like I was observing a few days ago in my last post on Asia (Another Look at a Few Asian Markets), there have been a lot of "un-bullish" developments on the charts.

I was observing that the Hong Kong Hang Seng (HSI) was in an ending diagonal. Well the last 2 days proved very un-bullish indeed. HSI is a mixture of Asia and Financials, and both are getting hit pretty hard in the crotch recently.  [more]



Another Look at a Few Asian Markets

November 25, 2009 – Comments (4)

I have written several posts in the past looking at Asian stock indices (Long Term Count of NIKKEI, HSI Long Term P/E Analysis, A Look At Some of the Asian Markets, and several others).  [more]



First and Second Derivatives of the SPX

November 23, 2009 – Comments (12)

Here is another off the wall post that will produce a few more interesting
observations. Please see my last post Recipe for Disaster to see where this train of thought came from and I will be linking some conclusions together between this post and that one.  [more]



Recipe for Disaster

November 23, 2009 – Comments (16)

I have worked a bit with Control Systems. I am by no means an expert. But the market right now looks to me exactly like an unstable control loop. For a little background on what I am describing, please read this post Why e is the coolest number and especially read the part at the end regarding LaPlace Transforms and integral convergence with respect to control systems.  [more]

November 20, 2009 – Comments (8)

A Look at Two Junior Canadian Miners

November 15, 2009 – Comments (2)

I want to share some basic analysis and charts of two Junior Canadian Miners (that most of you have probably never heard of) that I like a lot, have followed for about 2 years and have traded successfully several times.  [more]



Señor Dollar, Old Man VIXer!!! and Gold... Mr. Gold

November 12, 2009 – Comments (12)

Yeah, another lame pun (similar to this one The Market Moves Vixenishly). Anyhow, I still think we have made a bottom in the VIX like I called in the post linked above.  [more]



Why Arithmetic Stock Charts Are Worthless

November 10, 2009 – Comments (15)

Apologies ahead of time for titling the post so stridently, but I wanted it to capture people's attention. I have seen a lot of different charts on a lot of different blogs and some use Arithmetic (or Linear) Scale Price Axis charts to a) make counts and (more dangerously) b) draw trendlines on them. I disagree agree with this pretty vehemently and I wanted to share why.  [more]



A Bull, a Bear and a Pig Walk Into a Bar... Another Massive Chart Dump

November 08, 2009 – Comments (10)

Okay, time for another one of binve's Massive Chart Dumps! It is like a TA colonic, and will make you feel right as rain. But I certainly don't mean these charts belong in the toilet!. .... okay, enough scatological humor for one post.

My last Chart Dump was this one: Another Massive Chart Dump / P2 Analysis Wrap-Up that I wrote on Sept 26. Lets take a look at a few excerpts to see how I did:  [more]
