U.S. Treasury Bubble

You may not realize this, but the biggest threat from China these days isn't some old Red general bent on invading Taiwan. Instead, the real dangers stem from an economic technocrat. His name is Lou Jiwei, and in many ways he's the most dangerous man in China — especially if you're in the market for a mortgage. That's where the danger to Main Street comes in. As the head of the China Investment Corp (CIC), it is Mr. Jiwei's job to invest a portion of China's growing supply of U.S. dollars. [more...]

Wall Street Breakfast: Must-Know News

Cuomo continues BoA battle. New York Attorney General Andrew Cuomo moved closer to filing securities-fraud charges against Bank of America ( BAC ) executives, citing at least four failures to disclose key details about the Merrill Lynch takeover. Cuomo also said the bank, which 'sought guidance' before a December 2008 shareholder vote to see if it was possible to back out of the deal, can't continue to claim attorney-client privilege without revealing the substance of its lawyers' advice.

Dear CIGAs, We are looking at $1000 gold on the third tap. The battle should be interesting but $1000 will fall. The move to $1650 then begins.   Jim Sinclair’s Commentary The Chinese are doing exactly the right thing. Can you imagine discipline in finance? Maybe the President of AIG thinks that is a crime as he does about A.G. Cuomo’s focus on AIG’s mad bonus program. We are running banks here on a zero reserve basis. [more...]
