Re: Financial "gurus" who don't suck

I think Jonathan Clements retired recently.

Harry Browne died recently. He was the one who wanted us to put our money in Mexican CDs--then the peso dropped to just short of nothing.

Yeah LOL!* I read the "Roaring 2000s" book.* Was a little skeptical - especially since a bunch of the run up seemed to have compressed into 1999.

I still sometimes wonder about his demographic affects stock market projections.* Wasn't he predicting a giant bear market starting in 2008?* Of course he predicted a HUGE boom 2000-2008.* So far not so booming.

Edited to add: Ooops - I am speaking of Harry Dent! I actually didn't know who Harry Browne was :.

Re: Financial "gurus" who don't suck

Not a guru per se, but I find Tom Keane's "Bloomberg On the Economy" radio show to be very good. He interviews economists from academia and the street, and gets the occasional Fed governor or other gummint flunky. Tends to have a diverging set of views presented, so you'd have to listen and form your own views, but I find they do a good job of translating economist's cant into ordinary Joe language while still preserving the subtlety of their arguments.

I've noticed this pattern before. Market has a late August run-up on low volume (it's also end of month window dressing time). Volume has been low because so many traders/wall street professionals are gone during this time - getting their last minute summer vacations in. They all return after Labor Day. Quite a few times I've seen a major market reversal as soon the "pros" return. You might be right to "batten down the hatches".

We'll see.....

Hmmm, I can imagine that. I think we will be seeing a steady stream of fallout from the RE crash, and it will inevitably affect a wide swath of the equity market.

I bought QQQQ puts in my parents account across several expiry dates this week. Not doing so thus far in my own account because I have a igher risk tolerance and I am invested differently. If QQQQ crests 40 any time soon, I will be buying some puts.

Not only that, but the evidence is strong that the economy is decidedly slowing.* But the stock market doesn't seem to have noticed yet.* At some point, it'll wake up and smell the coffee.* And, as usual, the market will likely way overreact.* Slowing is not the same as a recession, but when the market reacts negatively to news of the economy slowing, it usually acts as if a recession is imminent.

So that compounded with RE crash fallout - we could have a right royal selloff.

Might take a while to happen though......* You never know.* Unfortunately these kinds of things usually take way longer to play out than I think possible. (That's why it's so easy to be way too early on perfectly logical (and accurate) predictions)

I don't particularly like that Ramsey constantly pitches his "preferred providers" and I think Suze Orman is full of herself. However I do not see why one would "hate" anyone who advocates paying off your debt. The fact that I have no debt is the reason I expect to FIRE in the near future.
