Alphas Edge Website Update – Oct/19/2013

We at Alphas Edge are working very hard to create useful tools for investors to assist them in finding great investment opportunities.  As we grow, we are looking for exceptional investors who would like to share their investment opportunities with Alphas Edge.  If you are an independent investor who happens to know (or enjoy finding) exceptional investment opportunities, feel free to email us at alphasedge@gmail.com.  Note however, that Alphas Edge will do a deep analysis on the investment prior to posting and supporting it.  Our goal is to ensure our investment advice is the best free advice in the entire web.

There is a bundle of great projects in the work to make the site a phenomenal resource for investors.  First, let’s cover what an alphas edger can expect this year!

  • Sunday will be spent on web site development.

What Was Done This Recent Week

Morning Market Briefing – Friday- 10/18/2013

On Thursday, the markets sold off in the morning but ended on a very positive note.  The Dow finished the day at 15371.65 (-2.18), the Nasdaq at 3863.15 (+23.71), and the S&P at 1733.15 (+11.61).  The dollar sold off throughout the world resulting in equities inflation worldwide.

This morning, citizens worldwide are celebrating!  We celebrate our rising equity and EVEN faster rising debt.  We unknowingly celebrate that every hour that we work to earn a dollar today buys even less of our diminishing future.

Morning Market Briefing – Thursday- 10/17/2013

Yesterday, the markets were told that the senate and democrats found a way to raise the debt ceiling and open the government.  The public was informed that a deal would be signed later on that day.  In response, the Dow finished the day at 15335.53 (+167.52), the Nasdaq at 3835.59 (+41.58), and the S&P at 1717.46 (+19.40).

This morning, the debt ceiling is raised and the government has restarted.  The US market is acting as expected, selling off.  Politicians everywhere are congratulating themselves on a job well done.  A first item on the list of things to do is pay the government workers who stayed home and did not work.  Where do I sign up to get paid for doing nothing?  I guess that is an advantage of working for the government, you do not really have to EARN your living.

We for one are glad that the government is working again for one reason.  The gold price manipulator who was selling obscene amounts of gold future contracts to manipulate gold prices at 7 AM every morning is now gone.  This morning, within less than a minute, gold mounted over 50 dollars per ounce.

Morning Market Briefing – Wednesday- 10/16/2013

On Tuesday, the US markets deflated throughout the trading day.  The Dow finished at 15168.01 (-133.25), the Nasdaq at 3794.01 (-21.26), and the S&P at 1698.06 (-12.08).  The investment community and media attribute the sell off to government talks deteriorating.   The real culprit, the US dollar, traded stronger throughout the day.

This is the great irony we are facing.  The government shutdown and debt ceiling breach should be seen as negative for the US dollar which should cause the market to rise.  Yet, the exact opposite occurs because the US dollar is still the world reserve currency.  If this was happening in ANY other country in the world, the currency would weaken, imports would become more expensive, and their market would crash.

Now, we are not saying that a government shutdown and debt ceiling breach would be bullish for the markets.  What we are saying is that as long as the US dollar is weak or weakening, the global economy will be expending!  This however is bullish for internationals.

This morning, government D-Day, the markets are trading higher.  The crippled feces flinging monkeys in Washington need to make a deal.  If they don’t, we can see the risk on trade take hold (dollar strengthening and equities selling off).

Morning Market Briefing – Tuesday- 10/15/2013

Yesterday, the US markets levitated throughout the trading day.  The Dow finished at 15301.26 (+64.15), the Nasdaq at 3815.27 (+23.40), and the S&P at 1710.15 (+6.95).  The media claims it was due to talks that a debt ceiling deal is near.   We just can’t wait until the debt ceiling fiasco is over and the market sells off.  It’s going to be fun watching them explain what happened.

The not-real-imaginary-make-belief government shutdown continues.  The politicians have moved on to the next topic de jour and no one is left arguing about to shutdown.  All the focus is now at the debt ceiling debate.  Once again the event in Washington, the debt ceiling debate, is nothing but distraction.  The lender (the Fed) has already agreed to lend the money.  The borrowers (dems and repubs) have already agreed to the notion that they need to borrow.  The casualties (US and Global Citizens) are already aware that they are about to get screwed.

This morning, the markets are trading slightly higher.  Headlines across all major news networks is that Washington is once again about to make a deal.  The real news, the never ending war of currency devaluation continues, in the background, hidden from public view.

Morning Market Briefing – Monday- 10/14/2013

Last week, the bipolar US markets finished on exuberance.  The Dow finished at 15237.11 (+111.04), the Nasdaq at 3791.87 (+31.13), and the S&P at 1703.2 (+10.64).  Absolutely no progress has been made in Washington.  It has become apparent that the news in Washington is nothing but a distraction.  Maybe if we start defaulting the market corrects itself.

So many are probably wondering what moved the markets last week. After extensive digging, we find two strong culprits for moving the market higher.  The primary culprit is that all markets (global markets) are once again strongly inversely correlating with the US dollar.  As the US dollar falls, the markets head higher.  The secondary culprit is the probable B-52 carpet bombing new Fed Chairperson Janet Yellen.  No doubt, Janet drops infinite paper to fuel the dying US economy (which leads to a weaker dollar).

The most underrated and enlightening news last week came from Wal-Mart on Saturday.  There was total simultaneous chaos in thousands of Wal-Mart stores when the EBT cards stopped working.  The fat and lazy, or poor and unfortunates who make up the food stamp nation were pissed.  So, this is what the government eventually has to deal with when one of its sponsored handouts is taken away.  The media claims a glitch at Xerox caused all of the EBT cards to not work.  Personally, we at Alphas Edge believe that the government was testing out what would be a possible consequence of removing a program.  The problem now is that these people believe that all this government sponsored programs (not just the EBT) are now entitlement programs.  Good luck ever removing one of these programs!

This morning, the markets are once again selling off.  The week is starting out just last the previous weeks.  The probable is that this week is a rerun of last week, with the week ending higher based on a government resolution.  There is a chance however that our mentally crippled friends in Washington drop the ball and totally crash the global markets.

Morning Market Briefing – Friday- 10/11/2013

On Thursday, the US markets droned to new highs on absolutely no real public news.  The Dow finished at 15126.07 (+323.09), the Nasdaq at 3760.75 (+82.97), and the S&P at 1692.56 (+36.16).  No real progress has been made in Washington.  In fact, one can argue that things are worst now than they were a week ago.  The politicos in Washington are not even trying to reopen the “shut down government” and agree on a spending bill.  Even worst, they have agreed to agree on raising the debt ceiling but have still not agreed on how to do it.  No doubt this will be a last minute resolution to a staged problem.

So much today’s US markets make no sense.  JPM got a donkey punched by the government and amassed a $9.2 billion in legal expenses for junk they were asked to purchase.  Yet Goldman Sachs who created much of this junk is untouchable.  The non-working poor single mother receives over 70K in benefits while the working (soon to be poor) middle class man pay thousands in taxes and receive no benefits.  At the very top, billionaires can single handily control the price of many goods and services disregarding real economic data.

Today, the market is opening green.  However, the likely hood for it to remain green is not likely.  Hopefully, many realized that yesterday was a great opportunity to sell high.

Morning Market Briefing – Thursday- 10/10/2013

Yesterday, the Dow finished at 14802.98 (+26.45), the Nasdaq at 3677.78 (-17.06), and the S&P at 1656.40 (+0.95). The old expected news that Obama favored Janet as the next Fed Chairperson was finally made public by Obama. The bipolar market rallied just long enough to be aggressively sold off in the morning. Later in the day the bears found resistance around the 200 day moving average resulting in a rebound.

The Special Olympics in Washington continued as new backup athletes joined both sides of the stalemate. Every politician and pump monkey on TV agrees that a deal should be made and that the US should raise the debt ceiling. However, none of them care to negotiate. At the same time, every real investor knows that this fiasco in Washington is just a show that doesn’t really matter. The real catalyst for a market correction (or new rally) is/will be changes in the Fed policy.

Personally, we think this bullshit that is occurring in Washington is just a planned show. Bernanke probably explained to Obama how the market would crash to sub 10,000 within 3 months of tapering. So a show in Washington was staged to distract investors from the real danger and to give a reason for the Fed to keep QE infinity. The reason many are calling it QE infinity is because the minute that Fed stops intervening in the market, the market corrects fast and furiously.

Today, on no news, the market is rallying during the pre market session. One can only assume that the show in Washington is about to end and the politicians are buying ahead of the announcement. This is a great opportunity to sell high!

Morning Market Briefing – Wednesday- 10/09/2013

Tuesday was a rerun of Monday, the US equity markets sold off and almost everything ended the day in the red because of the politicians in Washington. The selloff however was once again without conviction as the Bernanke Put is still in place. Additional new news (that was old news and expected) was released yesterday, and that was that Janet Yellen is going to be the next Fed Chairwoman. Unlike Bernanke, Janet is not expected to use a helicopter; it’s too slow and can’t drop the amount of money that she feels is needed. Janet will most likely be using a B-52 to carpet bomb the economy to new highs.

The charts have all broken the trend line and are pointing to lower lows and lower highs.  But hedge funds and gamblers are having difficulty selling this extremely fat market knowing that the Fed has their backs. No matter how bad the politics are or the economy is, everyone knows that you can’t fight the Fed and its army of printers.

Today, with no new bad news, the market is pointing to a slightly higher open. The market, even more unsure of itself than the previous day, is still waiting for a signal (tapering).
