Rising Prices $DJP

You think $4 gas is a problem? Wait till it’s $5.50 and you’re stuck at a gross gas station that charges $5 to use a credit card. You’ll impatiently wait in an unfordable expensive cotton t-shirt and curse the hipster in front of you who is smoking a $20 pack of cigs as he fills her hybrid vehicle. No…


Inflation Outlook $TIP

There are no signs of deflationary hysteria  as inflation protected papers continue to strangle comparable 7-10 yr. notes.  The long legged pimp daddy in the White House says we’re defending our “interests and values” abroad, but it won’t be cheap.  Gas prices continue to climb, undoubtedly a plot by the Bavarian Illuminati to destabilize my beach parties.  Unfortunately the April/May…

Freddie Mac is hot on StockTwits as the government sponsored mortgage giant surged over 125% after reporting a profit. As I mentioned here, try to ignore public perception, financial companies related to mortgage securitization are prospering; look at AIG and Fannie Mae. Breaking to multi-month highs with strong volume, FRE is trading in an uptrend…


NASDAQ McClellan Oscillator ($NAMO)

The NASDAQ McClellan Oscillator, a short term breadth indicator, began a downtrend on Wed. Whether this turns into a sustained move lower remains to be seen, but it is an early warning sign that you should be aware of. To my dismay, I was stopped out of one of my favorite leading stocks, STEC. Weakness…
