Financial Amnesia


Old FT Front Page

Since the Editorial boards of the vast majority of US financial journals have yielded to their advertisers or the corporate oligarchy, few papers/jorunals stand out.

One is the Financial Times.

This AM the FTimes is running a story accusing   Wall Street of  collective amnesia Investors411 readers know that this collective amnesia is purposeful and enacted so profit can be further privatized and the conseuences (risk) can be further socialized.

“Financial amnesia disarms individuals, the market and the regulator,” … “It causes risk to be mispriced, bubbles to develop and crises to break.”




Politicizing Science

Michael Mann

We have had an all out attack on science that perhaps stated with trying to prove Cancer had no relationship to cigarette smoking.  They were, for the most part unsuccessful then, but that was decades ago.

Now, Cherry picking data and using a massive political and media machine a corporate oligarchy tries convince an American public that the opposite of science fact is true.

Michael Mann in a TED/PSU lecture/video clearly proves how its done over climate change.

The same kind of McCarthyism is happening in the USA with everything from climate change to evolution to financial meltdown

Quite simply

Ethics and morality are being assaulted by

Reading The Tea Leaves


Our #1 technical forecasting tool, the McCellan Oscillator (MO) rose to +42.44 . 50DMA at +5.02NEUTRAL/bearish

We’re a bit moderately overbought, but no where near clear reversal territory. Since the 2009 meltup the MO has one time reached =100 and 5 times gone over +80.  4 of those times since June.  Therefore, there is some room for stocks to move higher before encountering resistance.

See last weeks Investors411 for all the other bullish factors influencing the market this week.

Traders - Season factors and a not yet overbought MO, shows there is time to go long, but the window is closing as the MO goes higher.

Investors - Those who need to make adjustments because of long term gains or losses will probably have the wind at their back till the last trading day of the year on Friday.

This year Investors411 emphasized Dividend producing stocks and ETF’s.  The two streams of income…

Longer Term Outlook

3 months+


In the last  6 months there have been at least a dozen moves of 5 to 20% one way or the other for major indexes. Investors411 has changed its outlook between Cautiously Bullish and Neutral far less.  This has been a difficult market to call.

The loan program of the ECB to over 500 European banks seems to have offer some stability to stocks.  This was larger than the program after the 2008 meltdown.

The bulls are back



Investors411 has 5 different valuations - BULLISH, CAUTIOUSLY BULLISH, NEUTRAL, CAUTIOUSLY BEARISH, and BEARISH.

Everything written in BROWN is a repeat from a previous day(s)
