Scotland

        by Larry Levin   The market had another wee-scare this week, which was the Scottish independence vote. As this is being written, the people of Scotland are deciding if they should be a free people or a vassal state of England; or of London more pointedly. Despite the fact that the vote is not complete while I type this, I will gladly go out on the proverbial limb and declare that the referendum will be an epic fail. I wish such declarations wouldn't be so easy to make; however, when it comes to the global banking mafia, you just have to accept defeat – forever. Some of you may be wondering why I would make such a pithy prediction, and the answer lies in the “fear” of an actual secession. Let me ask you a question: If you were a senior corporate officer in a global corporation that was taking on unimaginable amounts of debt and had the opportunity of a fresh start – what would you do? Would you start the spin-off with a portion of the crushing debt that your firm had no control over, or would you demand a debt-free beginning? Of course we know the answer - you would start the new firm with no debt if possible. And therein lies the anxiety: the market is once again afraid that its obscene levels of prior debt may catch up with it. If the new upstart, Scotland, repudiated its portion of the UK debt, all hell will break loose on the banking mafia across the globe. And since that is NEVER allowed, the fix was in: Scotland, from the beginning, would never be allowed independence! If I am wrong, I will revel in my error for days! … [Read More...]

Scots Stay in U.K.; Wall Street Debuts Biggest IPO Ever

      In the face of heavy trading volume, courtesy of quadruple witching day—the simultaneous expiration of stock and index options and futures contracts—the U.S. equity markets closed the session mixed as the Street debuted its largest IPO to date in the form of Chinese e-commerce company Alibaba Group Holding. Additionally, early morning sentiment may have found a boost from across the pond as Scotland voted to continue its union with the U.K. Treasuries were mostly higher as the lone release on the domestic docket revealed Leading Indicators rose less than expected. On the equity front, Oracle missed the Street's quarterly expectations and announced that CEO Larry Ellison has stepped down, while Dow member Home Depot raised its full-year earnings outlook. In M&A news, German software company SAP announced an agreement to acquire Concur Technologies for about $7.4 billion. Elsewhere, gold and crude oil prices were lower, while the U.S. dollar was solidly higher. The Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA) increased 14 points (0.1%) to 17,280, the S&P 500 Index was 1 point lower at 2,010, and the Nasdaq Composite declined 14 points (0.3%) to 4,580. In heavy volume, 1.8 billion shares were traded on the NYSE, and 2.8 billion shares changed hands on the Nasdaq. WTI crude oil decreased $0.33 to $91.65 per barrel, wholesale gasoline was $0.05 higher at $2.61 per gallon and the Bloomberg gold spot price decreased $8.30 to $1,216.85 per ounce. Elsewhere, the Dollar Index—a comparison of the US dollar to six major world currencies—was 0.5% higher at 84.74. Markets were higher on the week, as the DJIA increased 1.7% and the S&P 500 Index was 1.3% higher and the Nasdaq Composite Index ticked 0.3% to the upside. Oracle Corp. (ORCL $40) announced that Founder and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Larry Ellison has stepped down and both Safra Catz and Mark Hurd have been promoted to the position of CEO. Ellison will become the Executive … [Read More...]
