We All Have Little Bubbles

September 23, 2019

COMMENT: Marty, I love you Man! I was sitting in my office back in April of 2005, reading the WSJ. There was a story where Greenspan declared he would begin raising rates.

The Club & Why the Majority Must be Always Wrong

September 6, 2019

QUESTION: Mr. Armstrong; I did my own research on the 1998 Russian collapse. All the big names lost billions. Even the New York Times reported that George Soros lost $2 billion. You were the only one who made money so it made sense that you were named hedge fund manager of the year in 1998. […]

Trading Against the Reversals

May 20, 2019

The May Turning Point

May 9, 2019

COMMENT: It is interesting how your model picks the timing for a turn in the market as of May yet it leaves us guessing as to what the fundamental will be. Very interesting to say the least. Fantastic event in Rome. The cocktail party was the best view of Rome ever! Cheers HKD REPLY: The […]
