I will honestly say that technical analysis is a bunch of hogwash. People talk about technical analysis b/c they don’t know how to do fundamental analysis. “Head and shoulders”, “cup and handle” , bollinger bands, blah blah…. it doesn’t really matter. Every day, you have a 50% chance of getting it right or wrong. You can attribute your win to anything you want, be it flipping a coin, technical analysts or what now. That’s my 2 cents October 28, 2009 at 10:51 pm Financial Samurai, Somehow I knew you’d say that! I hear this all the time actually. It’s what most ...
terms (i.e. the terms and rates given to those who have missed payments on a loan) when that lender is informed that their customer has defaulted with another lender, even though the customer has not defaulted with the first lender. 1 This is a phenomenon that dates from the mid-1990s. Credit card companies included universal default language in their cardholder agreements at that time, due to increasing deregulation of the industry. Today, approximately half of the banks that issue credit cards have universal default language. However, since the inception of these provisions, most credit card companies have not enforced them ...

practices than the one known as Universal Default. With the arrival of the Credit Card Accountability, Responsibility, and Disclosure (CARD) Act of 2009, it is thankfully expected to become a thing of the past. From Wikipedia: “Universal default is the term for a practice in the financial services industry for a particular lender to change the terms of a loan from the normal terms to the default terms (i.e. the terms and rates given to those who have missed payments on a loan) when that lender is informed that their customer has defaulted with another lender, even though the customer has not defaulted with the first ... market research, surveys and trends
The End Of Universal Default: Foreclosure Will Not Raise Credit ...
There are two key factors that influence the efficacy of any nutritional supplement: the timing of the ingestion, and the bioavailability of the nutrients. The convenience of the portable gel pack delivery system that Agel uses allows first for the proper timing of ingestion to correctly correspond with meals, which in turn enhances the overall absorption and use of the nutrient. And second, the Gel Technology forces the critical nutrients to remain suspended in gel, thus optimizing the bioavailability of those nutrients when ingested. Traditional supplements found in pills and capsules do not always fully absorb in the ... market research, surveys and trends


Credit Card Reform: Good Riddance to Retroactive Rate Hikes ...
There’s a good deal missing from the landmark Credit CARD Act taking effect today: Card issuers can still raise your rates on future transactions; impose or raise certain fees; cut your limit or close your account with the proper advance notice. What they mainly can’t do is hike the rates on existing balances. The ban on retroactive rate increases is at the heart of the reform laws signed by President Obama nine months ago. For U.S. consumers who now carry on average a household credit card debt of about $10,000, it marks some peace of mind. Moreover, for those seeking new credit cards starting today, they will enjoy 12 months ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

Companies Market Debt as Speculative-Grade Defaults Slide: New Issue Alert
Companies are marketing $4.22 billion of debt in the U.S. as default rates for high-yield, high-risk U.S. borrowers slide. The rate at which U.S. speculative-grade borrowers default on their debt fell to 6 percent at the end of June, an 85 basis- point drop over the past month and down from the 11.3 percent peak in November 2009, Standard & Poor’s said in a report today. Planned debt sales have risen 44 percent from the level two weeks ago, according to data compiled by Bloomberg. The build-up in potential issuance comes amid rising risk aversion that pushed the 10-year Treasury yield below 3 percent last week for the first time ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
Irrationality and Anti-Muslim Stereotyping
Within minutes of learning that last November’s Fort Hood shooter had an Arab name and an Islamic background, commentators at the major media outlets were engaging in wild speculation that the killer’s motive was “jihad” and that the murders fell into the category of political terrorism. For many Americans, these reflexive conclusions also confirmed what they’d decided long ago: that Muslims want to do them harm. Although it is more appropriate to try and understand perpetrators of terrorism by their political (rather than religious) identifications and grievances, the tenacity with which ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

Since the onset of the sub-prime fiasco and the subsequent liquidation of Lehman Brothers followed by the costlier bailout of AIG; financial markets regulators have constantly and energetically have questioned the very existence of CDSs in the financial markets. This hatred recently culminated into a ban on the naked CDS exposures on Euro denominated bonds of the EZ nations by Germany on May 18th with a rather feeble and brittle aim of elbowing speculators out of the EU sovereign debt markets. The history of CDS as an asset class has been very contentious. However, this asset class has from time to time exhibited an ...
What happens if you quit paying your credit card? - Yahoo! Answers
I am very broke & I'm wondering what happens if I decide not to pay my credit card? If it goes to collections, what happens then? Will a lien be filed against my home? Will they garnish my wages? Will I lose my home? Thanks! It could be a while yet before it goes to collections, but first it will go to collections, then if you still don't pay, it will probably get sold (though maybe not). Then you will be sued. If they get a judgment, THEN they can get a lien on your house and garnish your wages. You typically won't lose your home, they will usually just wait for your house to sell to collect ...
