Re: Cracks emerging in money markets?

How can this hurt Joe Average investors? I don't go around all day thinking about the repo market. Might MM funds "bust the buck"? Some institution(s) needed cash. IF there was no short term cash for them to borrow well think possibly Lehman Brothers. Liquidity is needed for the Market or there wil...

Re: Cracks emerging in money markets?

I'm curious as to where all the negative interest stuff is going to go which to me is a crisis all by itself. It literally makes no economic sense. (Or if someone has seen a good explanation, please post it. I would enjoy reading about it.) Perhaps it's as easy as there is soooo much money in the w...

Re: Is this for real? (Social Credit Score, Big Tech, & the Right to Own a Gun)

Which AR were they selling for $350? One sale offered an American Tactical Import Omni Hybrid Maxx Semi-automatic rifle for $349.99, with more sales to be added, the gun store claimed. Go to www.alphadogfirearmsaz.com and look for all our AR15 and AK47 deals under the BETO SPECIALS tab. Deals and d...

Re: Is this for real? (Social Credit Score, Big Tech, & the Right to Own a Gun)

Gun sales are going to go through the roof if a Democrat gets elected Gun Sales are Starting Early . Beto is such a good Salesman. It is likely no coincidence at all that a “Beto Special” gun deal offered by one outfit — Arizona-based Alfa Dog Firearms — sold out on its select, $349.99-priced AR-15...

Re: Service economy inspires crappy design

So Ive recently taken to start working on my own vehicle ( a beater that I decided to fix up)..and I'm shocked at how awful cars are designed when it comes to making repairs easy. Parts that engineers know will need servicing are buried under other parts which often necessitates hours of labor to r...

Re: Speculators Anonymous

Current speculation, small caps, and specifically small cap value. In my experience, I've come to view small-caps as the "canary in the coal mine" for stocks. If small caps go up, stocks in general tend to follow more often than not. Likewise, when small caps stagnate or breakdown, typically stocks...
