To Hood Or Not To Hood, That's The $100 Billion Dollar Question?
2012-05-12 14:58:00
With Facebook heading into it's historic IPO this week, and valuations some have estimated as high as $100 billion, one's hard pressed to figure out how fashion (or lack thereof) figures into the equation. Even the NY Times' editorial gave ink to the question, "Who could have thought a hoodie could mean so much?" Of course, we're talking about the "Zuck" and his signature apparel.
Can The Dollar Fall Enough To Save The Day?

Once again, the U.S. Dollar Index (DX-M2) is declining lower after the opening bell rings at the New York Stock Exchange. This happens very often when the major stock indexes are breaking lower. You see, when the dollar declines everything in the stock and commodity markets will inflate and trade higher. Just the opposite will happen when the U.S. Dollar Index rallies, the stock markets will decline and deflate lower.
Foo Fighters' 'Million-Dollar Demos' Leak

A pair of songs from band's contentious One by One sessions make the rounds.By James Montgomery Foo Fighters' Dave Grohl and Nate Mendel Photo: Peter Wafzig/ Getty Images In the nearly two-decade career of the , there was no period quite as contentious as the sessions that (eventually) led to their 2002 album One by One. Weary from a two-year world tour, and being pulled apart by various intra-band dramas (including drummer Taylor Hawkins' drug overdose), the Foos were on the brink of calling it quits, and attempts to record the album certainly didn't help matters any. The bandmembers were unhappy with songs recorded at Grohl's Virginia studio and Conway Studios in Los Angeles, battling each other and their desires to call it a day, and they scrapped the songs before taking a break (Hawkins would subsequently refer to the scrapped tunes as the "million-dollar demos"). Eventually, recharged by a performance at Coachella, they decided to try to make the album again, and...

It may not seem like much happened yesterday, but a very important event occurred. Yesterday the dollar index breached 78.65. The reason that is significant is because 78.65 marked the intraday low of the prior daily cycle. A penetration of that level indicates that the current daily cycle has now topped in a left translated manner and a new pattern of lower lows and lower highs has begun. Any time a daily cycle tops in a left translated manner it almost always indicates that the intermediate cycle has also topped. In this case it would indicate that the intermediate dollar cycle topped on week two and … [visit site to read . . . → Read More: THE INFLATION TRADE IS ON: BERNANKE HAS BROKEN THE DOLLAR RALLY

Special Feature: Instagram Now Belongs To The Billion Dollar Club. Did Face
2012-04-11 11:25:00
Facebook buying Instagram out for $1 billion is the biggest acquisition in the Tech world this year. What was surprising was not the fact that Facebook bought the company but rather the fact that it bought the app for a billion dollars. The amount of money shelled out by Zuckerberg led to some intense online discussions, tweets and articles. Was shelling out this kind of money for a photo sharing app justified? Co-founder and CEO Kevin Systrom started working on Instagram (which came out of an app called Burbn) primarily to leverage the ‘location’ buzz that was going with services like Foursquare. After noticing that more and more people were using the app not to check in but to upload photos of their daily lives.  Systrom thought of launching Instagram exclusively for iOS in October 2010. The Instagram app gained lot of popularity over the last two years. With Instagram releasing for Android last week, Android and iPhone have nearly settled into full featured competing mobile...

Everyone is rightfully excited over the potential for a strong rebound in the U.S. economy. And there is nothing short of the potential of global recession at stake should U.S. growth sputter. What is the key risk to U.S. growth going forward? A Balance Sheet Recession You may not be familiar with the term “balance sheet recession.” The reason is because we haven’t seen one in the U.S. since the 1930s Great Depression. So what qualifies as a balance sheet recession, how is it triggered, and why is it so dangerous? In a balance sheet recession individuals and businesses are more concerned about paying down existing debt than taking on new loans.

In response to a bursting real estate and credit bubble in 2007 Bernanke’s solution was to crank up the printing press and flood the world with dollar bills. Unfortunately it didn’t solve our problems, it only made them worse. The real estate and credit bubbles stayed busted, but that liquidity had to land somewhere. In 2008 it went straight into the energy and agricultural markets spiking the price of crude, gasoline and food. This in turn collapsed a fragile global economy that was already reeling from the real estate implosion. The end result was the exact opposite of what Benjamin intended. Instead of halting the real estate collapse he just magnified the severity of the recession. Unfortunately Bernanke has . . . → Read More: CAN BERNANKE BREAK THE DOLLAR RALLY?

How Global Rebalancing Could Send the Dollar Soaring!
2012-03-19 20:33:00
Back in November, I laid out the case for a multi-year bull market in the U.S. dollar. At the time I shared several reasons, and most of them seem to be playing out. One of the key factors was my belief that interest rates in the U.S. would be hiked by the Fed before any hikes came about in Europe or Japan. This is important because interest rate support is a powerful driver for a currency. Interestingly it is not the Federal Reserve that may be the driver of higher interest rates here, supporting the U.S. dollar. Instead it’s the breakdown in the Chinese growth model and their desperate need to refocus on their own consumer for . . . → Read More: How Global Rebalancing Could Send the Dollar Soaring!

There is a multi-billion dollar water industry forming before investors’ eyes in the oil patch. It’s a huge opportunity for some great capital gains — but changing regulations, and a very attentive mainstream audience questioning business practises which have been in effect for decades, will will make it choppy water for investors. “In 2008 there were 25 billion barrels of water handled (by the oil and gas industry) in the US—even at 60 cents a barrel it’s a multibillion dollar business,” says Jonathan Hoopes, President of GreenHunter Energy Inc.

Nine Reasons Why the U.S. Dollar May Have Bottomed
2011-11-21 18:05:00
It’s always difficult to pinpoint where we are in terms of a trend, whether it’s in stocks, bonds, or other assets. Long-term trends in the currency markets have ranged from six to ten years, measured by the various bull and bear markets in the dollar since the inception of the free-floating currency market back in 1971. Here’s the pattern as measured by the U.S. Dollar Index: •   1971-1978: Seven-year bear market (President Nixon closes the gold window) •   1978-1985: Six-year bull market (Fed Chairman Volcker squeezes inflation) •   1985-1992: Seven-year bear market (triggered by the Plaza Accord) •   1992-2001: Ten-year bull market (tech boom and money flow to U.S. assets) •   . . . → Read More: Nine Reasons Why the U.S. Dollar May Have Bottomed
