A short break

Friday, May 29, 2009

Well, the moving truck is here... It looks like that will be about it from California. Save for a possible quick update to the "Guess the mid-year price of oil and gold" contest late today or tomorrow (sharply up and to the right has been the general direction), the next thing you read here will originate from Bend, Oregon, sometime next week.

UPDATE - May 29th, 9:35 PM PST: The contest graphic has been updated - see below.

I know you aren't here yet, but I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to Oregon. I'm in Portland so we won't exactly be next door neighbors, but if you ever need a cup of sugar or anything don't hesitate to ask. Hope you have a safe journey.

Thanks Justin!

my wife's loser brother moved out to Bend (next to Redmond) about 10 years ago. He was always telling us how "on the up" the place was. I guess it was, as he was able to buy 3 other properties with his goldmine. Of course he borrowed against them, lost it in the market, and now has lost 2 of the 3 homes he "owned". There is zero help coming from us, but I wonder why Bend, when it is like phoenix and so many other overbuilt and now defunct towns?
Or maybe that works out.
Either way, best wishes!

I'm jealous, I'd love to escape Cali and its financial mess...

I've noticed that another Seeking Alpha writer, Dr. Kris from MIT has developed a really interesting item called the SMC analyzer on her puts together Modern Portfolio Theory and several market timing oscillators - seems she prefers the CCI - in regard to properly allocating assets. Looks like an innovative and new way to allocate, and puts 'buy and hold' to bed for good it seems. Are you familiar with it?

I've been involved in markets for many years and fund managers have never shown that they can effectively time the markets. Maybe they should take a look at it, since this seems to be hard math and there is no 'human' element to louse the results.... Your thoughts on it?
