You’re not going to like what I have to say in this issue. But I’m just going to tell it like it is. No spin. Just common sense analysis. The Wall Street “experts” and other “pundits” who don’t understand the macro picture … who continually miss the big trends … and steer you the wrong way — are as ignorant a lot as I’ve ever seen. They ought to be ashamed of themselves. They missed the tech wreck of 2000 – 2001. They missed the top in the Dow in 2000. They missed Enron and WorldCom. They missed the bear market in the dollar, the breakout of inflation. They missed ...
stake in the company (i.e., they are owners), whereas bondholders have a creditor stake in the company (i.e., they are lenders). Another difference is that bonds usually have a defined term, or maturity, after which the bond is redeemed, whereas stocks may be outstanding indefinitely. An exception is a consol bond , which is a perpetuity (i.e., bond with no maturity).
letter re: investing in foreign currency cds
I am rebalancing my investment portfolio to account for the market’s recent gyrations – and the fact that our government is attempting to make the dollar even more worthless than it currently is. Several years ago I was in a similar mood and found EverBank, a bank that issues a number of CD products tied to foreign currencies (effectively getting your saving out of dollars into something that’s not dollar-denominated). I am not preparing for a complete meltdown or the end of civilization: I am preparing for a prolonged economic depression. My main goal is to preserve the value of my capital while ... market research, surveys and trends

In response to the person who asked about military manuals, most (at least US Army) are available online for free, from the following sources: The site has lots of military and world sitrep information updated constantly. The Federation of American Scientists has tons of military hardware systems information. The pictures are useful for recognizing and there is data on each system's performance, purpose and use. Also, the US Army maintains the General Dennis J. Reimer Training and Doctrine Digital Library at Fort Eustis, Virginia. It used to be mostly open access, but I believe it's changed to a more ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
Rapid Trends, Gold and Silver Bullion
Miners closing out hedge books continues to subtract from overall global supply, with miners closing 254 tonnes of hedges off their books in 2009 ($9.8 Billion with gold @ $1200) Official sector sales (Central Bank Sales), has dropped for 3 years in a row, with only 41 tons of sales in 2009. It is important to note, that this area of supply has historically been in the area of 500 tonnes per annum, and Central Banks halting sales of gold leaves a large hole in the supply equation, that is only now being taken up by recycling gold scrap. The gold scrap industry is booming. From 2007 to 2008, there was a 334 tonne year over year ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
Thai Bond Risk Rises as Forces Clash With Rioters, Fires Rage
May 20 (Bloomberg) -- The cost of insuring Thai government debt from default rose, erasing an earlier decline, as security forces clashed with rioters at a Bangkok shopping center following the end of an overnight curfew. Violence has spread to northeastern parts of Thailand, the home of many of the demonstrators who had camped out in central Bangkok for the past two months. Protest leaders surrendered after their fortified base was stormed yesterday, prompting clashes to spread across the capital, with fires starting at buildings including the Thai Stock Exchange. All Thai financial institutions will close for the rest of the week. market trends, news research and surveys resources

“$10 trillion … $12 trillion … who cares? You know we’re not going to pay it back. My kids won’t pay for it … their kids won’t pay for it.

DOB: International Investment Fraud
A new breed of con artists is cashing in on our interest in global investing with a variety of  international swindles. Informed investors should be able to recognize common danger signs before sending their money overseas on a one-way trip, never to return. American investors, swept up in the overseas investment boom, would do well to temper their euphoria with caution since a new breed of con artists is cashing in on the rush to global investing. U.S.-based swindlers, with bogus overseas investment schemes and high-pressure telephone "boiler room" sales operations located outside the United States, may defraud ... technology research, surveys study and trend statistics
In mid-80s, lots of Americans traveled to Europe. Why? The US dollar was at an all-time high in 1985. When the dollar is strong, foreign travel is cheap.  Strong dollar makes all foreign goods and services seem cheap to Americans.  Since the mid-80s, the dollar has weakened, foreign currency has appreciated, and more foreigners have traveled to the U.S. See graphs page 152.  Exchange rates of foreign currencies vs. the U.S. dollar.  When the line on the graph increases, the foreign currency is getting stronger and the $ is getting weaker. Even though Americans found it cheap to travel to Europe in the ...

Google Answers: How can I invest in the Euro currency?
I am an American citizen living in the U.S. How can I invest in the Euro currency? Can I go to a bank such as Citibank and open a Euro deposit account? Are there other easy ways I can buy Euros? I would prefer bigger well-known institutions (vs. smaller ForEx brokerage sites for example).

I did have one question: Other than Everbank, do you know of a way to invest in Euros? (i.e. the same mechanism but a more well-known bank?)
