Revelation 6:6 “A quart of wheat for a day’s pay”

I’ve written about my intrigue with prophetic books before and I own and have read a large collection of works from all over the world regarding the birth and death of man kind from many different cultures perspective. I enjoy reading these books because they give credence to things like Chaos Theory and Interconnectedness when […]

Time To Short This Market

As the month of September closes this week, I expect the stock market to dip over the next week or two.   I’ve always gotten the sense that the end of the third quarter brings a brief rally and then an immediate market drop the week or two after.  I suspect that mutual fund managers want […]

Nuclear Physics and Finance, The Theory of Everything

One of my side hobbies is TOE & quantum physics in addition to finance. Albert Einstein has been quoted as saying, “The most powerful force in the universe is compound interest” and I’ve always been fascinated by WHY he said such a thing. As I study some formulae in both the finance world and the […]

China Adjusts To Capitalism; America Adjusts to Socialism

The UAW strike got me thinking about what a really strange world we live in these days.  On the one hand, Americans have been trying to get the world to embrace capitalism and it’s some what surprising that the real change in China these days is largely due in part because of pressure put on […]

Weather Arbitrage & Hedging

No, that’s no a typo headline, I came across a website here which allows you to buy contracts on weather to hedge against rain, cold, hot, etc. In theory, you could arbitrage the weather as well. I was fascinated and captivated by the possibilities. If you think you’re going to have a harsh winter, why […]

FICO Score Finally Pops After Dumping Last 25k of Arbitrage

I paid back my last 25k of arbitrage a while ago but it took nearly two months for my score to pop. It went from 757 to 825 after (I’m assuming) paying off that last 25k. Of course, I’ve now taken a 40k auto loan and plan on swapping that back over to credit card […]

America, The Land of Opportu…err….Moral Hazards

The Fed’s decision a couple of days ago has pretty much validated the moral hazard syndrome.   Everyone will be encouraged to speculate all over again.  There’s plenty been written about the financial moral hazard over the past few weeks so instead I’m going to write about all the other moral hazards found or soon […]

US Mint Out of Gold?

What’s up with the US Mint?  I was considering buying some gold coins direct from the US mint over at USMint.gov and they’re not selling anything other than the Gold Buffalo! Gold hoarding so soon after Fed rate cut?

Fed Decision Forces New Category at Get Rich Slick

Who are the big winners with the Feds move yesterday? Borrowers. Who are the big losers? Savers. A few readers questioned my motive a month ago why I went to all my credit card companies and requested credit line increases in this post. I by no means foresaw the Fed cutting rates by 1/2 point […]

Hell Hath No Fury Like Inflation Scorned

The Fed has gone and done did it. With Fed rates lowered by a whopping 1/2 point, we’ll see that hell hath no fury like inflation scorned. I’m heading out to the grocery store today to buy the following items: a loaf of bread, a dozen eggs, a couple of rib eye steaks, a gallon […]
