Plosser, Fisher vs. Yellen, Tarullo??

Already this morning, two of the most hawkish Fed voting members (Plosser & Fisher) have spoken, indicating that rate hikes are coming sooner than later. I wonder how quickly will a couple of the über doves step forward and contradict [more]

Re: Check your GTC orders...

I've also come to wait at least a few days to place an order after making a decision to invest. Once in a while the interest level isn't quite the same 1-2 weeks later, which tells me that once again I probably just saved a buy commission and a [more]

Random noise.

Whafa,

As noise, it's at a pretty high decibel level. -317 points on the Dow in one day is bound to get some attention.

About 20 more days of 300 point drops and valuations should start to look [more]

Re: FT Discusses "Bubbles"

PolymerMom:
There are also implications for investors. In a bubble, the correct thing to do is steer clear, wait for it to burst...

Check your GTC orders...

Heads up:

Don't repeat my mistake(s). You might want to check your "Good til Cancelled" or GTC orders.

Time to dump MCD, BKW, WEN, etc.?

Re: PG&E's nightmare

The one possible mitigation was that pipeline regulations at the federal level were shoddy, incomplete and not well enforced.

Re: I hope it hasn't started yet...

High-yield bond ETF's are sliding badly. I've sold off one and have a tight stop (5% below 52-week high) on the other. It's nearly there.

I hope it hasn't started yet...
