Welcome to NAS Trading
If you are interested in trading or investing in the futures, currency, or stock markets, let me warn you: We will be discussing perspectives and viewpoints that might leave some readers angry and offended.
- Lets face facts: The mainstream investment and trading viewpoint has failed. On what? Pretty much everything. The financial spin-masters sell the false notion that everyone in the market can be a winner. Sorry, but it simply is not true. There are too many paper dollars chasing too few legitimate investment opportunities. What we are left with is a series of bubbles, deflations, manias and panics that wreak havoc on “mainstream” investors and traders – while a few walk away with large profits.
- Conventional market wisdom is that traders need a roaring bull market in order to make money. As a result, the mainstream spends countless hours guessing about the beginning and ending points of “bull” and “bear” markets. Yet, we doubt these pontifications have helped even a single trader or investor make sound decisions. The 90′s and mid-2000′s bubbles (stock market and real estate) might have been good investment climates, yet they ultimately proved to be giant ponzi schemes fueled by easy money fed policy, a reckless financial sector, and a public ravenous for investment returns. Once again a small number walked away with riches while the majority of participants were hosed.
- The ramifications of the debt crisis(es) are hard to understand because they are covered in a misleading way. The simple truth that is seldom considered: The public and private debts that make up the “debt crisis” are an asset on someone else’s balance sheet. The huge quantity of paper-money assets that are such a significant part of the wealth of individuals, banks, and corporations are the flip side of the “debt problem” that is suffocating our economy.
- What does it all mean? The debt crisis ultimately means that the majority of paper asset holders, (And this includes the humble social security recipient just as much as the multimillionaire investing in Tax free municipal bonds) must ultimately face significant losses in terms of real purchasing power. Why? Because not enough real wealth (and income derived from real wealth creation) is being created to fund all of those inflated financial assets and their corresponding cash flows.
- And most importantly: Difficult conditions should not equal cynicism. Those who give way to cynicism and grow disheartened will only be missing out. At NAS Trading, we firmly believe that enormous opportunities exist (and will continue to exist) for those who are willing to seize them.
NAS Trading mission is to analyze current conditions and to profit.
