Today, those same Greek bonds closed on 6.5%, more than offsetting the first year's coupon. Greek bond yields are up more than 150 basis points in the last month!

"When I began trading I had no clue what I was doing. I paid the price. I had no discipline. I would buy stocks that were at 52 week highs or that had broken out days earlier and then I would wonder why I always took losses. I would sell my winners for a small profit but then hold my losers for weeks if not months and just watch the red on the screen get worse and worse. It was frustrating beyond belief and I contemplated… Continue

"Why is it that in the face of the most severe financial crisis the world has ever witnessed, Economists who were unable to fore see this crisis are now being entrusted with overcoming it? Have you heard of the "Austrian School" of Economics?"
Please vote for it to get it… Continue

DOUBLE WARNING & IF THEN SCENARIOS: Subscribers of these IMTs and followers of alaidi on twitter were warned about not only a possible GDP explosion that was a full percentage point above consensus, but also about the INTERMARKET IMPLICATIONS of such a move. As US GDP blew up expectations (5.7% instead of 4.5%), USD immediately rallied along with stocks and commodities, only for the USD to maintain its strength while gold, oil and stocks all headed lower.

Many traders and investors believe that the month of January is the most important month of the year. The old market adage states that "the market year will behave the same as the month of January." Therefore, if January is a down month many expect the year to be down. While this has been true for many years it is not always the case.
Let's take a look at last year for instance. The SPDR Trust (NYSE:SPY) topped out… Continue

This morning the market soared higher after the Gross Domestic Product(GDP) report by the U.S. government. Reportedly the GDP increased 5.7 percent in the final quarter of the year.

The preliminary GDP numbers came in at a monstrous 5.7%. This kick started a rally on Wall Street that lasted until 10:30am ET. At that point the markets started to fall as the strong dollar (which has now tagged the 200ma on the UUP) stayed near the highs. A strong dollar is putting pressure on commodities. That in turn is putting pressure on commodity stocks like XOM and CVX which have a major weighting… Continue
