As you might have heard yesterday, Japan has officially entered another recession. Who'da thought that printing trillions of yen and destroying your currency would cause the economy to fall? Give me a break. So to do even more damage to his insane policy, he's ordered a vote on cabinet policy, and one of the ideas he's brewing is to literally have the Government print up gift cards that they can hand out to the poor so they can just "spend it".

I'm sure you noticed that I couldn't send any Email updates yesterday, Constant Contact had a major outtage from about 9 am to 3 pm. They were down hard, where NONE of their applications functioned. So I just wanted to get this to you and remind you that any time you don't see an email from us, remember I always post the updates on the website also. Just log in and then click Insiders Club.

Again, sorry for the troubles, but it was out of our hands.

All The Tricks

One of the interesting things about putting out a newsletter for almost 20 years is that we've covered so many topics that you really can't even remember half of them. Think about the sheer numbers for a minute.

As if seeing the market rise 200 points yesterday on the heels of Visa and their 5 billion dollar buy back wasn't enough, this morning I wake up to almost "limit up" futures. What in the world was that about? Well it seems that over in Japan, they've gone "all in" on a new round of QE, saying they will flood their market with 80 TRILLION yen.

I thought I was seeing things.

I woke up at 5:45 and as usual, flipped on the monitors on the way to the coffee pot. What I saw simply didn't register in my sleepy eyes. Was that the futures up 200 points?  No, couldn't be....

I got my coffee, and stumbled back to the computers. Sure enough it was the DOW futures up 200 and the S&P was up 24. Obviously something major had been said or done overnight. It only took about a minute to find the culprit and it was Japan. In a move that could only be called "all in", Japan has announced they're going on a QE spree as they've never done before, looking to inject 80 TRILLION yen into their system.

Excuse Me?

I hesitated to talk about Hillary Clinton’s latest remark because it was a few days ago and certainly everyone has talked about it.  But I do want to spend a minute talking about just how depraved and insane the left is when it comes to reality.

I have a special ugliness when it comes to Lady Hillary.  Back when she was pushing for her version of universal healthcare back in the 90’s, I was a retiring jeweler. I had owned a jewelry repair shop and a couple retail outlets making me the typical “small business owner”. Some might call it being an entrepreneur.  I will never forget the rage I experienced while driving in my car one evening listening to talk radio.

This Halloween season brings back some pretty nasty memories for me. It was two years ago this week, when Super Storm Sandy landed dead center in the Brigantine Inlet of NJ, just 3 miles from my house. That evening and the following 3 weeks were some tough times for a lot of my closest friends.  I lost my home completely as did many of my neighbors on the bayfront. But even folks living 5 and 6 blocks inland on the lagoons had water 4, 5 even 6 feet high crashing through their homes. It's certainly a memory that haunts me during the Halloween season. Even now, exactly two years later, many folks still don't understand the struggles a lot of people are still going through in my town.

It was really a wonderful piece of timing for me; that my friend and partner Phil Grande from philsgang.com decided to send me an article he’d like to express.  My wife and I were going to be pretty tied up this weekend with some travel, so having an interesting article to publish was mighty handy. So with no further ado, here’s Phil with today’s commentary….


AMERICANISM vs QUANTITATIVE EASING;  CHARTING vs FUNDAMENTALS

With just 13 days left from this writing before the senate race; who would ever think that under the leadership of the democrats and President Obama (our “liar “N” chief) who’s cornerstone of his administration is lying , deception and deceit  (which is exemplified by his recent statement  “by almost every measure we are better off than the day he took office”) while his record shows more lies and deceit and quite the opposite facts:

Last week we found out that a doctor had supposedly tested positive for Ebola in New York, which got people a bit nervous. But they saw that down in Dallas it didn't seem to spread much, so they found hope in that. Today we hear a five year old boy is in the hospital in NY being tested, and this kid had recently returned from Africa. Once again folks are sort of nervous buy they're hiding it well. Sort of like kids whistling past the graveyard.

Will They Do More QE?

Pull up a chair and let’s chat folks.  This is going to be an interesting letter on a lot of levels, so let’s get started.

Everyone that has any interest in finance knows that the Federal Reserve has had a program in place called Quantitative Easing for the past 5 years. For those of you who don’t understand what it is, the basics are that the Fed’s have printed up money and then used that money to buy Treasuries from the Government and to soak up toxic assets like bad mortgages from the banks. In doing so, it has had the effect of constantly lowering interest rates, since they don’t have to raise rates to “lure” folks into buying the T bills. The Fed’s would buy them at any price, and any rate of return.

But the offshoot of QE was that because they were buying up toxic crap from the banks, AND because Treasuries are also bought from the “primary dealers” ( the big banks) the banks got tons and tons of money to go play cowboy in the asset markets. With virtually zero percent money for the big companies to borrow and buy back their own stock, and all the bank money sloshing around, we’ve had the best bull market that fake money can buy. Stocks are up gigantically since the beginning of the program.
