Weekend Reading – Hindenburg Omen Edition

by Darwin on August 22, 2010

So, we survived the week in Hindenburg Omen territory and while the market didn’t exactly “light up” my portfolio, the dreaded market crash didn’t occur, nor is it any more likely over the near term than at any other time in the recent past.  The market has already priced in stagnant unemployment that’s going nowhere, a pessimistic business environment where owners are afraid of the anti-biz rhetoric coming out of the White House and we may be looking deflation in the eye with 10-Year Treasuries now closing in on 2.5%, a 1950s level.

Market stuff aside, there were some great reads around the web this week, and in case you missed some articles I wrote in the recent past, I’ve included them for your perusal at the bottom.  Check out the best of the web from the past 2 weeks:

Gotta read more about this Hinderberg Lindenberg stuff. Frankly, I’m bullish and am buying the dips!

Wait, are you saying the market isn’t looking good?

The next couple of years will be interesting for our economy.
