Is Alibaba the ultimate Pump-and-Dump?

November 20, 2014 – Comments (3) | RELATED TICKERS: BABA

I was, of course, concerned when US investors spent $Billions in BABA's IPO.  I mean, I know we elected Obama, but aren't those with money smart enough not to buy stock in a Communist-run company, where the Communists could literally step in at any moment and take over the company?  If you want some history, look at Hugo Chavez and Venezuela.  Hugo literally took over every foreign company of consequence in Venezuela - stole the whole thing - all assets - lock, stock and barrel.  That CAN happen if things go south for the Chinese Economy (and I believe WILL).    [more]

With S&P and Dow hitting new highs, the novices (some of which look like experts as they talk on CNBC, etc.) keep asking the same, tired question "Are Equities in a bubble about to burst??".  [more]



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]
