OFFICIAL POLL: Mish or Schiff ?

January 30, 2009

I have been following this closely over the past few days and thought that it would be an interesting idea to have readers voice their thoughts on the controversy that is surrounding the Wall Street Journal Article that explores Mish’s findings regarding Peter Schiff’s “calling the market crash” and his general investment thesis.

Do you agree that : "Schiff was Wrong?"

  • Yes, Schiff got it Wrong (46%)
  • Both got some right and some wrong (26%)
  • No, Mish Got it Wrong (13%)
  • Who cares! (8%)
  • Both are Right (5%)
  • Both Got it Wrong (1%)

    Amazon (AMZN) may be the only retail survivor

    January 29, 2009

    Jeff Bezos must be a happy guy tonight. (AMZN) reported earnings of $0.52 on revenues of $6.7 billion, blowing away analyst expectations of 39 cents per share on $6.44 billion.

    It was another nice quarter and rather surprising given the economic slowdown. Amazon has been able to do wonders in this environment as consumers look for bargains at any cost. On Nov. 20, Amazon bottomed to a two-year low of $35.03 and has since risen sharply. Even though the retail outlook and economic conditions continue to deteriorate, they pulled off an amazon amazing quarter.

    On Dec. 26 Amazon set the expectations high for an impressive finish to the fourth quarter when they said: “The 2008 holiday season finished as its best ever, with over 6.3 million items ordered worldwide on the peak day, Dec. 15, which is a record-breaking 72.9 items per second.”

    How long can that pace continue?

    Serious Futures Returns

    January 29, 2009

    I just got this info…

    A year and a half ago, INO decided to track the results of their MarketClub “Trade Triangle” technology in six different markets.

    The markets they decided to trade with this method were corn (CBOT_C), wheat (CBOT_W), soybeans (CBOT_ZS), crude oil (NYMEX_CL), gold (XAUUSDO) and finally the dollar  (NYBOT_DX).  I am told they chose these markets because these all have had prolonged and profitable moves in the past.   INO’s “Trade Triangle” technology allows you to catch these moves and stay on top of the market.


    I have truly been surprised that they have had such big returns, especially in the last two quarters.  In Q3 of ’08 they had a phenomenal return and exceed that in Q4 of ’08.   Clearly diversification is key.

    Certainly there is no guarantee what 2009 will bring, (except more excitement) but take a look at the short video that they have prepared to show you the results. The President of, Adam Hewison, goes through some of the actual signals that were dynamically generated with the “Trade Triangle” technology.
