Doin' It Bloggystyle: Where do we go from here?, Inflation, Subprime, Ironic Irony, March Madness
Minyanville brings together the best of what they are saying "out there" about the topics we're talking about right here.
Blogs themselves need no introduction, as they get as much publicity as pretty much anything these days, save maybe the latest Britney news. There's an expanding world of excellent financial blogs, covering pretty much everything from global economics to swing trading. Minyanville's goal is to bring together the best of what they are saying "out there" about the topics we're talking about right here.
Where do we go from here?
- Dr. Brett notes some utterly extreme put/call readings in the market "debacle" the last few weeks.
- But we're still within a relatively tight range, as Brad Sullivan notes.
- Further out? Trader Mike has an interesting visual of multiple duration MA's here that does not bode so great.
Inflation? On the Comeback Trail? Abnormal fills us in.
- Ticker Sense sees some ominous signs in the ISM Commodities Survey.
- Barry makes a good point though about the PPI. "Once we remove everything that has gone up in price, inflation remains contained."
- James Picerno chimes in, saying "it's clear that upside inflation momentum, though slight, appears to have the upper hand."
Is it ever possible to get enough subprime in our lives?
- Millionaire Now finds some great predictions how this plays out from Brad Inman.
- Oddly enough, the Federal government had some radical suggestions in December 2005. "Refrain from giving loans to people who can't repay them. Educate borrowers on the risks involved with these subprime mortgages. Increase their cash reserves to prepare for the possibility of widespread defaults." Hat Tip Housing Bubble Blog.
- Blogging Stocks with some ways to tackle it.
- Personally, I'm playing it in LEND for now.
Can irony really be pretty ironic sometimes? Blackstone may be going public. "Nixon Going to China" moment, or a bunch of really smart and rich guys making a business decision? I tend to think the latter. I mean come on, taking companies private is the company's avenue to making trillions, not some religous quest against public markets.
- Roger Ehrenberg says, watch your wallets.
- Motley Fool writes a personal plea.
- Greg at Naked Shorts sees a "Page 6" sell indicator here on the recent Shwartzman Birthday bash.
And so on, special March Madness edition:
- Darren Rovell looks at the real monetary upset that was VCU over Duke.
- It really upset me, that one, lol. One more win by VCU would have REALLY worked for my brackets.
- Dan Shanoff looks for Cinderella.
- Springfield's real state to be revealed in the Simpsons movie?
- "First you go swimming only 20 minutes after eating, now you're going to go out dressed like that? Oy." Yes, Hooters is opening up in Tel Aviv.
