I will be surprised if the eloquent G. W. Bush doesn't refer to Hurricane Ivan as "Hurricane Iran" ... thus exposing the sinister 'linkage' between evil weather and 'evil mullahs.'

Funny article....here is the funny part....lol




Douglas Fabian, editor of the Douglas Fabian's Successful Investing newsletter, says "yes." He believes that surpassing the 39-week moving average significantly increases the likelihood that the market will continue to go up.

So on Monday he sold from his newsletter's model portfolio the mutual funds it previously had been holding -- Rydex Ursa (RYURX: news, chart, profile) and Rydex Tempest (RYTPX: news, chart, profile) funds, which make money when the market declines -- and replaced them with funds that will profit if the market rises.

Unfortunately, his newsletter's track record over the past 25 years provides little insight into whether we should follow Fabian's lead.

Interesting article, jstrack.

This bit is important for technical traders:

In fact, the 39-week moving average portfolio has now lagged a buy-and-hold for 13 years in a row.

Blake LeBaron, a finance professor at Brandeis University ... speculates that the 39-week moving average might have been sabotaged by too many investors trying to follow it. Ownership of personal computers skyrocketed in the late 1980s and early 1990s, and coupled with cheap online databases, those PCs enabled a much larger group of investors than ever before to discover and quickly exploit the moving average. A dramatic lowering in transaction costs at about the same time made it very easier for investors to trade on signals generated by the 39-week moving average.


Too many punters on the same side of the moving average boat ... :(

The though occurred to me, watching Aaron Brown's rant on CNN last night, that investors, both domestic and foreign, are about to wake up to the fact that the US is losing in Iraq. The last secular bear market developed over a period of war, with increasing public awareness that US was losing.

But the dollar is up sharply today. So there goes that theory.


Excellent observation. In my readings, this seems to be the pattern: wars generally lead to economic collapse for participants- especially for those who do not win. We have many good historians on this site (i am not) so maybe someone can comment.

Re: today's dollar's rise -looks like it may turn into the proverbial middle finger on the 15 minute chart....

The reason for this outsized inventory draw down probably has EVERYTHING tto do with having lied in the previous couple of reports...and it was just time to "come to Jesus"
