Ringing the Bell

Is that what Bill Cara said he does when he makes some coin? Well, I'm ringing the bell because yesterday's post was spot on with how the market traded today. Bill, can you hear the bell? :)

Articles for the musing:
  • Another great post from the Texas Hedge Report. I do not want to agree with their analogy on the Roaring Twenties and today. But, they make a good case. If you throw the Presidential cycle into the mix...their timing might be pretty accurate. The 29 crash occured 3 October's before the 1932 election. We're currently 3 January's away from the 2008 election. If the gold and silver markets are truly in secular bull markets...they're going to have to start turning around sooner rather than later.

  • An interesting study on buying the prior year's strongest sectors. If you would have done this from 1991 thru 2004; you'd have a compounded annual return of 18.4% versus the SP-500's 9.7%. Read here.

  • Interview of Jeffrey A. Hirsch from RealWorldTrading. Take it for what you will. Read here.

  • I have a problem with simplified logic. Maybe because that's my game. ;) Regardless, the logic this investor is using to game oil and satellite radio worries me. Read here.

  • Interview with Pulte Homes CEO, Richard Dugas. A completely different perspective on the rise in real estate. Can you believe they build and sale 100 homes a day? Read here.
