Ready to add to EEV

Everyone is talking about the new Fed powers, when the real issue is the letter by the SEC to end FASB 157 and with it mark to market accounting. Unconscionable to say the least, but I would think this is the reality of the phrase, you get what you deserve. I shake my head at the ignorance involved in this decision. Instead of transparency and clarity we get obfuscation, denial and hope. A true travesty of economic and financial justice.

Oh yeah, by the way, buy stocks on that decision ! As I have oft said, books are going to be written about this period marvelling at our outright selfishness, unbound greed, economic ignorance and overall abject stupidity. We all know what we would have done leading into the top of the market in 1929 with hindsight now. I believe we are in just such a place again, what are you doing about it?

The chart of the EEM (above) looks ready to roll over. A break of the 133 level looks like an appropriate level to watch for. I have been playing this via the ultashort emerging market ticker EEV. The corresponding break out of the EEV would be $83.40. I intend to get long a 2nd unit of the EEV on a move thru $83.40



Good speculating to you all.
