Time to Get on the (SPX) Roller Coaster

The market’s reaction to a rumored settlement on the debt ceiling was a great “tell” on the short term direction of the financial markets. There is a 100% chance that we get an agreement on the debt ceiling by the August 2 deadline. The republicans have unwisely painted themselves into a corner. So deal they must, and very soon.

Tom Day: Regulatory Compliance: Regulatory Capture: A Trip Down Memory Lane

The below is a letter I recently found in my "examiner friends" archives that I thought was worth sharing. This was written in 2005 by an anonymous former Federal Reserve examiner. As a former bank supervisor myself, the accuracy should challenge us all to pay more attention to those in the trenches doing the actual work (whether bank supervisors or in your own firm; management by walking around, as Tom Peters used to quip). To say the below is insightful is an understatement.

The Global Physical Gold & Silver Reserves Race is the New Nuclear Arms Race

The old Cold War USA-USSR nuclear arms race has been replaced by the East-West battle to accumulate physical gold and physical silver reserves.
