10 Things You Need To Know That Are Going On This Weekend

SPECIAL EDITION: 10 Things You Need To Know That Are Going On This Weekend

Courtesy of Joe Weisenthal, at Clusterstock 

It’s a Saturday, but it certainly doesn’t feel like it, because there’s a heck of a lot going on. 

Here’s what you need to be paying attention to this May Day.

  • Greece/IMF/EU talks continue. According to Greek government officials, some kind of announcement may be made today. The market is hoping to hear something that’s orders of magnitude stronger than any bailout announcement we’ve gotten so far, or otherwise the feeling will be that it can and will fall through again.
  • Of course, there are fresh violent, anti-austerity protests going on today in Athens. The fact that it’s May Day, a day for celebrating anti-capitalism only adds to the tension.
  • New reports suggest the criminal probe into Goldman Sachs is not just a perfunctory follow-on to the SEC charges, but rather a truly separate thing that’s wider than Abacus, and that started before the SEC’s investigation. HUGE.
  • With just five days before the election, UK’s The Guardian has endorsed the Liberal Democrats, the country’s biggest third party. Its leader, Nick Clegg, has surged thanks to a string of strong debate performances, Gordon Brown’s disastrous campaigning, and a lingering sense of unease with the conservatives.

Despite recovering to the mid-US$6,000s at the time of writin...

    These Index Charts Will Calm You Down

    I put together this video that will calm you down, because knowing where are within the stock market cycles, and the economy makes all the difference.

    This is the worst time to be starting a business that’s for sure. I have talked about this is past videos and events I attended that bear markets are fantastic opportunities if you can retain your capital until late in the bear market cycle. If you can do this, you will find countless opportunities to invest money. From buying businesses, franchises, real estate, equipment, and stocks at a considerable discount that would make today’s prices look ridiculous (which they are).

    Take a quick watch of this video because it shows you ...

    One of the broadest indices in the states remains in a long-term bullish trend, where a critical support test is in play.

    The index has spent the majority of the past three decades inside of rising channel (1). It hit the top of this multi-decade channel to start off the year, where it created a monthly bearish reversal pattern.

    The repo market problem isn’t the problem. It’s a sideshow, a diversion, and a joke. It’s a symptom of the problem.

    Today, I got a note from Liquidity Trader subscriber David, a professional investor, and it got me to thinking. Here’s what David wrote:
