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 just about 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.


Yup, would have been Jerry's Birthday today.

Eyes of the World, and what they see ahead:
  • Ticker Sense looks at market sectors' behavior versus their trading envelopes.
  • A spike in pretty much every measure of Fear known to man and Market, via Jordan Kahn.
  • Watch out for August, notes Crowder Investments.

Fire On the Mountain and other big picture thoughts...

  • Bullish Jim looks at the month that was.
  • Jeff, back just in time from vacation, with a look at the fundamentals at A Dash of Insight.
  • Is the S&P 30% undervalued using some relationships to the VIX? Aleph Blog takes a look.

Blue Horseshoe loves Franklin's Tower (they're in the cellphone biz, I think), and some names to look at...

Box of Rain, and where are our saviors?

Shakedown Street, need I say more?

  • So on TV I saw one of those annoying he said/he said features the other day, pitting Andew Sorkin of Dealbook versus Pat Toomay from The Club For Growth.
  • The subject? Of course Private Equity individuals getting the 15% tax rate.
  • The best point of all was made by Steve Liesman. He accurately notes this feature is a waste of time. It's a useless debate as nothing is going to change on this front anyway. And he's 100% right.
  • Why? Champs of the common man like Chuck Schumer are standing in the way. And Wall Street is giving more money to Dems than Reps, so the cynical me can reasonably expect this trend to continue.
  • How much does it take to buy a politician on this issue? Not much according to Ben Stein:
  • ... "the politicians are much more pitiful than I had thought. Contributions in the thousands and hundreds of thousands for tax breaks in the billions? This isn't sensible, even on an old Tammany Hall basis. Contribute a penny to get a hundred dollars? What's up with that?"
