  1. , December 23, 2019 Short bets against long-term Treasury bonds hit record as economic pessimism wanes Speculators have amassed a record level of short wagers in futures for U.S. long-term government bonds, which have profited from a significant run-up this year. The growing willingness of bond bears to place bets on a reversal of this year’s bond rally represents an about-turn from August when investors feared an impending recession as the economy succumbed to trade-driven headwinds. Those concerns now have abated and a growing camp of investors see potential green shoots coming up in the global economy thanks to a preliminary U.S.-China trade agreement. To be sure, few anticipate a cyclical recovery as high debt levels and a tight labor market prevent an acceleration of growth. “Shorts in the longest maturity [Treasurys] have soared since the trade war headlines improved,” said Jim Vogel, an interest-rate strategist at FHN Financial. Non-commercial players, or those who don’t use interest-rate futures for hedging purposes, have placed a record net bullish position of 384,666 future contracts for bonds with maturities of 25 years or more in the week ending in Dec. 10.

  4. A SUCCESSFUL PH INVESTORS’s views & methods for trading in PH market I want to share some NOTES (on a no-name basis, until I get permission) Saw a surprisingly good presentation on Technical analysis, sponsored by one of the brokerage firms The presenter Is a Successful self-employed trader-investor, who used to work for a big PH bank, And then said he “tripled his salary” when he joined a larger European bank for two years. Then he went out on his own, and enjoyed enough success as a private trader to buy a P100 Million house about 2-3 years ago. In addition to his own Trading, he also prepares quarterly presentations for various large institutional clients. He gave a very clear presentation on Technical analysis in front of a group of 6-8 people. Fortunately, he was willing to entertain questions, and I asked him plenty, as did a few of the Other attendees. This allowed us to get some real depth of understanding into his current views, And some of the areas where he enjoyed past success. / 2 / Here-in, I will summarise some of the Bigger Picture views he presented, & I found most interesting (These are not given in the same order they were presented.) + He thinks the PH market peaked about two years ago in Jan. 2018, at over 9,000 + He does use Elliott waves also and thinks we are in the A wave of an long A-B-C correction that Could last for some years. He agreed with me observation that we might have recently seen the Wave 2 of wave 2, and so are headed into a bigger drop PSEI : Thu.1.23.2020: Php 7,616.35 + 147.62, + 1.98%. (ALI: 40.80 + 1.40, + 3.55%, DayH: 41.25) + 7500-7600 was key support, and it looks like that is gone for now. (Key Support about 5000 or lower?) + Other than Cash, there are no (or very few) safe havens for PH based investors + Personally, he moved away from PH stocks about two years ago, and now does most of his investing In the USA and other foreign markets, where etfs, shorts, options and other instruments are allowed + He finds it harder to trade now, with some shrinking of volume and illiquidity, as fewer foreign Investors are active in PH now.. When he was trading in size in PH a few years ago he sometimes Had to struggle to find the volume he wanted without moving the price too much. (His trade size on a “big” personal trade might have been P 5 Million or more.) / 3 / + Some of his successful trades include Double Dragon (DD) where he approx. Doubled his money, Riding the stock from the breakout just about P10 to P20, but missing out on the wild ride to P80. And Integrated Micro-Electronics Inc (IMI), where he also made many millions. There were other successes mentioned, but I did not Get them into my notes. + When doing technical analysis he makes extensive use of parallel lines as support and resistance Levels. He likens these to floors and ceilings, and talked about market action being like a tennis ball Hitting those levels and trying to break through. He talked about techniques he uses to identify When the action might be ready to make a break. Coiled and tight action below a resistance level With higher lows. Can be a sign of a coming breakout, especially when buying volume rises. + we agreed that gaps can be meaningful and can be a warning or confirmation that a trend is Changing or has changed.

  8. REIT fires up stock mart | Business | Daily Tribune 12 hours ago - The release of the new set of amended rules and regulations for the Real Estate Investment Trust (REIT) law will revitalize activities in the stock market as property firms, long waiting in the wings to participate in the new scheme, are expected to seize the opportunity to raise capital in the stock market. PSE president and CEO Ramon Monzon said in the regular online program “Straight Talk with the Daily Tribune” while the REIT Law was passed in 2009, no property firm has listed to date. The announcement of the implementing rules and regulations (IRR) provides the opportunity to get the product off the ground, according to Monzon. The new asset class was met with tepid response from the investor community because of several contentious provisions. “REIT under the Tax Reform for Acceleration and Inclusion (TRAIN) law are VAT free and under the IRR, the 33 percent minimum public offer (MPO) will be required on participating firms which is lower than the original requirement of 40 percent in year one and 67 percent in year three,” Monzon acknowledged. Monzon said that the entry of REIT in the stock market will allow the democratization of real estate ownership by allowing the public to be part of the spectacular growth in the property sector through the bourse.

 Pencil Neck Tries to Impeach over ‘Russia Collusion’… Lead House impeachment manager Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) led his opening argument in the Senate impeachment trial of President Donald Trump on Wednesday by citing allegations of “Russia collusion” that have been debunked. Schiff tried to argue that the Senate had a duty to remove President Trump from office for allegedly inviting foreign interference by Ukraine in the 2020 presidential election because he supposedly invited Russia to interfere in 2016. He said: We also took this step with the knowledge that this was not the first time the president solicited foreign interference in our elections. In 2016, then-candidate Trump implored Russia to hack his opponent’s email account, something that the Russian military agency did only hours later. Schiff was referring to a press conference in July 2016 at which Trump joked about Russia finding the approximately 33,000 emails that former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton had deleted from her illicit private email server. Trump made the joke after being badgered by the press to comment on allegations that Russia had hacked the Democratic National Committee’s email server. The Clinton campaign had blamed Russia — and had blamed Trump as well. Trump said (emphasis added): So it is so farfetched. It’s so ridiculous. Honestly I wish I had that power. I’d love to have that power but Russia has no respect for our country. And that’s why — if it is Russia, nobody even knows this, it’s probably China, or it could be somebody sitting in his bed.They probably have her 33,000 e-mails that she lost and deleted because you’d see some beauties there. … I have nothing to do with Putin. I’ve never spoken to him. I don’t know anything about him other than he will respect me. He doesn’t respect our president. And if it is Russia — which it’s probably not, nobody knows who it is — but if it is Russia, it’s really bad for a different reason, because it shows how little respect they have for our country, when they would hack into a major party and get everything. But it would be interesting to see — I will tell you this — Russia, if you’re listening, I hope you’re able to find the 30,000 e-mails that are missing. I think you will probably be rewarded mightily by our press. Let’s see if that happens. That’ll be next. Yes, sir… That is what the Obama administration, and now the House Democrats, turned into an invitation to interfere in the 2016 election. In Schiff’s words, “then-candidate Trump implored Russia to hack his opponent’s email account.” But Trump said nothing about hacking. He was talking about Russia finding her emails — something that public reports suggested might already have happened, given the lack of security on Hillary Clinton’s private email server. Schiff actually played a clip of the press conference, falsely referring to it as a “rally,” as if Trump deliberately planned to make a statement inviting Russia to do something. The true context — a press conference where Trump was repeatedly asked about Russia, and where he was clearly making a joke at the media’s expense– is crucial. === Break this Focker's case, or his neck, but get past these Lies
  13. Satanic One: Still ALIVE, breathing... and Dangerous (for some) Hillary tears open wound with attack on Sanders... Rifts may help Trump, Dems fear... Hillary Clinton tears open wound with her attack on Sanders Hillary Clinton has torn open old wounds from her divisive 2016 battle with Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), putting Democrats on edge about whether the party will be able to unite after a 2020 primary that has produced new fault lines between the center and the left. Clinton’s attacks on Sanders — and her refusal to commit to endorsing him or campaigning for him if he wins the Democratic presidential nomination — infuriated progressives and raised new fears among Democrats about whether supporters for the losing candidates will turn out for the nominee against President Trump in November. Those questions come as Sanders and his allies are ramping up their attacks against former Vice President Joe Biden, who they view as representative of the same “Clinton corporate wing” of the party that fumbled away the 2016 election to Trump. Tensions are boiling over as polls find Sanders, Biden, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) and former South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg (D) in a tight race in the final two weeks before the Iowa caucuses. Democrats and progressives interviewed by The Hill insist that the party will rally behind whoever wins the nomination. But many view Clinton’s remarks as unhelpful and self-serving. “You feel like looking Hillary square in the eye and asking, ‘What the hell are you doing?’ ” said one Democrat who has worked on presidential campaigns. “Donald Trump is president. Bernie on a bad day would be better than Trump on his best day. We need to win.” Conflict escalates... Bloomberg rises to 4th place in new national poll... Biden cries on live TV, says 'Beau should be running for president, not me'... Flips out at reporter: 'Why why why why why why why?!?'
