  • Mixflation – Inflation plus delfation equals biflation – What?

    Mixflation Or everything you need to know about prices changes, but were afraid to ask. Biflation or mixflation is when, somethings on the store shelves are going up in price and somethings are going down in price.  This makes sense, yawn. You might say this is a normal situation.  However, what we have now is […]

  • Algorithmic trading – How can you compete in the Stock market

    Here is a fact to meditate on – today just under 75% of all equity trades are done with computer programs. For me that is amazing. You will be outgunned by the big traders before you even your stock chart page loads in your browser. If you are looking at investment strategies that try to […]

  • Free Trade vs. Mercantilism

    Is it better the USA is a mercantile or free trade nation? The populist mercantile argument, of protectionism, is gaining momentum.
