Seller Of Luxury Miami Condo Demands To Be Paid Exclusively In Bitcoin

And they said bitcoin would never work as a currency. While that might be true for small transactions – for now – real-estate markets across the US are increasingly demonstrating that bitcoin is a viable medium of exchange. Case in point: the seller of a luxury Miami condo will only accept payment in bitcoin. The […]


The Running Of The Japan Bears

Authored by Nick Schmitz via Verdad Capital We’ve done a National Geographic–style deep dive into the world of the Japan bears, reading the scare stories about demographic decline, old people dying alone, underrepresentation of minorities on corporate boards, and other anecdotal “evidence” of stagnant economic prospects. We tried to find the best examples of Japan bearishness: […]


Senate Tax Debacle: Certain Pass-Through Entities Face Marginal Tax Rates Over 100% Under Current Bill

As the House and Senate continue to try to reconcile their two versions of a tax plan, the taxing structure for pass-through entities (s-corps, LLC’s, etc.) continues to be somewhat controversial, if not completely nonsensical. As we pointed out last week, the Senate bill somewhat randomly chose to exclude pass-through entities organized as family trusts […]


Mysterious Gold Dealer’s Testimony Puts Erdogan On Shaky Ground

Authored by M K Bhadrakumar via The Asia Times, As on the soccer field in his youth, so in a tumultuous political career spanning four decades: Turkey’s president Recep Tayyip Erdogan has consistently shown his mettle as a fighter who won’t be satisfied with anything short of total victory.  But in the battle that is […]


Weekend Reading: It’s The Debt, Stupid

Authored by Lance Roberts via RealInvestmentAdvice.com, As I noted last Friday, the recently approved budget was an anathema to any fiscally conservative policy.

“The Nightmare Scenario” Revisited: Albert Edwards Lays Out The Next “Black Monday”

Is it the onset of a recession or the fear of a recession that causes a crash? That is what SocGen’s bear (or, as he calls himself this time, wolf) Albert Edwards contemplated on the 30th anniversary of Black Monday, before reaching the conclusion that it’s the latter. Having taken several weeks off from publishing […]


Former Miramax Screenwriter Posts Harvey Weinstein Mea Culpa: “Everybody Fu*king Knew”

The LA Times asks: so who has dared to defend Harvey Weinstein? The answer?: "Oscar-winning director Oliver Stone, actress Lindsay Lohan, actor Tony Denison, fashion designer Donna Karan and director Woody Allen rose to Weinstein’s defense despite a tidal wave of industry condemnation." Of course, each of these has subsequently and awkwardly walked back their initial enthusiasm for […]


Weekend Reading: Bull Market In Complacency

Authored by Lance Roberts via RealInvestmentAdvice.com, With the market recently breaking above 2500, there seems to be nothing to dampen the bullish exuberance. The recent run, which has largely been focused on areas in the market with the most sensitivity to tax cuts, has exploded over the last two weeks to record highs. That explosion […]


“No One Knows How To Interpret The Fed” Trader Reflects On Crushed Curve-Steepening Trade

Authored by Kevin Muir via The Macro Tourist blog, Last week I got long the US 5-30 year yield spread (Air Says Get Long Steepeners). I thought the seasonality, combined with a bear move in bonds, would cause some steepening in that part of the curve. Well, I got the bear move in bonds, but […]


Exactly How Many Warnings Do You Need?

Authored by Lance Roberts via RealInvestmentAdvice.com, When I was growing up my father, probably much like yours, had pearls of wisdom that he would drop along the way. It wasn’t until much later in life that I learned that such knowledge did not come from books, but through experience. One of my favorite pieces of […]


Oh Canada – Reflections On An Economic Experiment

Authored by Kevin Muir via The Macro Tourist blog, It seems like the only time Canada makes the news is when America elects some right wing President the Hollywood elite don’t like, and they all threaten to move to Canada. We are usually too polite to say something, as it is often clear the Americans […]
