Whatever Happened to the "Global Savings Glut"?

The stock market rallied strongly on Wednesday (Nov. 28).

Maybe they really were, or maybe they only thought they were. Either way, we've been hearing for a couple of years now about how the financial system is "awash in cash." It was back in 2005 when none other than Ben Bernanke himself coined "global savings glut," his phrase of choice to describe the phenomenon.

It was only last month when The New York Times ran a piece with the headline, "Silicon Valley Start-Ups Awash In Dollars, Again."

So imagine my surprise when, this very morning, I see a front-page story in The Wall Street Journal that has a very different headline, to wit: "Financial Firms, Capital Depleted, Hunt for Cash."

Wow.

And the "financial firms" in the article weren't a collection of little corner banks, either (assuming that there's enough of them still around to amount to a "collection"). The firms named in the article included Citigroup, Bank of America, and Merrill Lynch.

I won't go into the particulars, 'cause you already know who the Bad Guy is in this story: Mr. Subprime Fiasco.

As for what was real and what wasn't when it comes to a world awash, glutted, and overstuffed with cash… well, who knows?

It couldn't be that what looked like a glut was in fact a bunch of return-hungry investors and institutions scooping up a bunch of debt instruments that weren't nearly as low-risk as advertised. That could never happen.

All I do know is that the WSJ story said that things have gotten so bad that, in an effort to raise $6 billion, Freddie Mac will soon sell "a larger offering of nonconvertible noncumulative perpetual preferred stock, and a substantially smaller offering of convertible noncumulative perpetual preferred stock."

I could look up what that means, but doing so would only beg the question of why anyone would pay anything for even one share of stock that has four adjectives preceding it.

It's getting crazy out there, to the point that the media claims that stocks rally because investors ignore bad news that's real, and instead were inspired by hope of a Fed rate cut, a.k.a. news that hasn't happened yet and didn't work the last time it did.

The Monsters are Due on Wall Street

Greed. Fear. They are the two emotions that rule financial markets. Greed sends the markets up, while fear sends them down. Lately, fear has begun to sink its claws in. For instance, take today's lead sentence from a page 1 story in a leading financial newspaper:

Fears of a credit squeeze and economic downturn pushed the Dow Jones Industrial Average into a full correction, as yesterday's 1.83% decline sent it 10% below its October peak…. [Wall Street Journal, 11/27/07]

Fear makes people want to sell their stocks. It takes a level head to shake off thoughts of fear when others seem consumed by it – particularly when you invest in the markets. Fortunately, technical analysis allows investors to separate their thoughts from their emotions. That can be useful during days when the market drops more than 200 points.

But fear is such a strong emotion that it can also make people turn on one another. Which is exactly the point that Rod Serling made in his classic Twilight Zone episode, called "The Monsters Are Due on Maple Street," which first aired in March 1960.

The show began with neighborhood kids playing outdoors one summer evening on Maple St. There comes a loud roar, and all the lights and phones go out. When one adult tries unsuccessfully to start his car only to have it turn itself on as he walks away from it, the others look at him suspiciously. Then the lights turn on in one of the houses, and the parents and kids look in panic at the owner of that house. As their fear mounts, one of the loud-mouthed neighbors shoots a stranger walking toward them on the street. He breaks down and blames one of the little boys for all the trouble, saying, "Look, I swear it isn't me! But I know who it is! I know who the monster is!"

Then the episode concludes with two voices discussing their experiment:

Alien #1: Understand the procedure now? Just stop a few of their machines, and radios, and telephones, and lawnmowers, throw them into darkness for a few hours and then sit back and watch the pattern.
Alien #2: And this pattern is always the same?
Alien #1: With few variations. They pick the most dangerous enemy they can find. And it's themselves. All we need do is sit back and watch.
Alien #2: Then I take it that this place, this "Maple Street," is not unique?
Alien #1: By no means. The world is full of Maple Streets. And we'll go from one to the other and let them destroy themselves. One to the other...One to the other...One to the other...

That's a powerful reminder of how fear works – on both Maple Street and Wall Street. And it was an interview with Stephen King in Time magazine that brought this Twilight Zone piece to mind. Here's a question and answer from that interview about the new movie based on his novel, The Mist:

Question: Part of The Mist is this subtext about how fear makes people irrational. How do you think that's playing out in the world today?

Stephen King: Well, it's always there. What The Mist reminds me of is a big, exciting version of an episode like "The Monsters are Due on Maple Street." In that episode, these aliens did an experiment to see what fear did to human beings. [In The Mist], there really are monsters and they show up on Main Street in this little town. Granted, the situation is unreal, but an audience can say, "Here's a good, harmless place where I can actually test drive what I would do in a disaster." Particularly if the disaster was just totally inexplicable. But in the real world, if disaster strikes us, it seems to me that it's always inexplicable. [Time magazine, 11/23/07]

But in either a greedy world or a world of worry and fear, the markets are not completely inexplicable. That's where students of Elliott wave analysis can learn how to keep a grip on their own fear or greed and see what's really happening in the major financial and commodities markets. For instance, on Monday night (November 26), our Short Term Update calmly pointed out after a serious down day that there are still two viable scenarios for what's going to happen next in the markets. In fact, the August lows are key to knowing whether one bullish pattern or one bearish pattern will take hold.

If you like the feeling of being scared, sit down with a DVD of The Twilight Zone and a bucket of popcorn. But if you would prefer to stay calm amid a panicking herd, then avail a Free Independent Investors eBook and sit back and relax.

Good day and good trading!

Options Trading Puts & Calls

The Building Blocks: Puts and Calls by Stan Freifeld & Online Trading Academy

I have a mathematical and analytical type of personality. In fact, that's what attracted me to options trading in the first place. Wait a minute, there's some important options news:

**Options Alert** On November 7th, the NASDAQ announced that it would pay $652 million in cash for the Philadelphia Stock Exchange, the country's oldest stock exchange. It is expected that the NASDAQ exchange will start trading options on Dec. 7, 2007, assuming they receive SEC approval. Also, on Monday of this week, the CBOE announced that it would start publishing a new volatility index, similar to the popular VIX. While the VIX represents a 30 day implied volatility based on the S&P 500, this new index, symbol VXV, will represent a 3 month implied volatility also based on the S&P 500. Details will follow as they become known.

Wow, there's never a dull moment here in options land!

Anyway, back to the beginning. Relative to stocks, options have characteristics that make them more interesting, more fun to trade, and perhaps a better match to my personality. When you're trading stocks, you buy them when you think they're going up and sell them when they're headed south. Of course, that's not always so easy to do. On the other hand, I may buy an option that I'm predicting will go down in value, because at the same time I can sell another option against it, predicting it will go down even more. This is called a spread, but we're getting ahead of ourselves!

Every options position, and all of the funny names that you've heard (straddles, strangles, butterflies, iron butterflies, broken wing butterflies, condors back spreads, vertical spreads, time spreads, need I go on?) are just combinations of Calls, Puts and sometimes Stock. Let's make sure we fully understand what these fundamental building blocks really are. The plan here is to start from basics and build a library of articles so that our options trading is on a firm foundation.

Be aware that there are options on almost every conceivable type of asset that trades: stocks, futures, commodities, Forex, bonds, interest rates, etc. However, for now, we will be discussing options on equities, i.e. Stock Options. So what exactly are they?

A Call (Put) option is a contract that gives the holder the Right, but not the Obligation, to Buy (Sell) an underlying asset, at a certain price, up until a certain date.

That "certain price" is called the Strike price or Exercise price and the "certain date" is called the Expiration date. So,

A Call (Put) option is a contract that gives the holder the Right, but not the Obligation, to Buy (Sell) a Stock at a Strike price, up until the Expiration Date.

You'll probably also hear options referred to as a "wasting asset." All that means is that with all other things being equal, the value of an option will decrease as time goes by. Just the opposite of a fine wine!

Calls and Puts generally represent 100 shares of stock. Be careful, if you want to control 300 shares of stock, you want 3 option contracts, not 300. There are some sad stories regarding people who didn't quite understand that and traded a lot bigger size than they anticipated! There are times when an option contract will represent something other than 100 shares, possibly after a stock split or a merger, or some other corporate reorganization, so if you're not sure, check with your broker or the Options Industry Council.

Options can be classified as either In The Money (ITM), Out of The Money (OTM), or At The Money (ATM). You can determine an options status by comparing the Stock price (S) to the Exercise Price (E).

So, as an example, with XYZ stock trading at $53, the Dec 50 Call is ITM, and the Dec 50 Put is OTM. In a similar fashion, if the stock was trading at $48, then the Call would be OTM and the Put, ITM. With the stock at $50, both options would be ATM. Even with the stock "slightly" above or below $50, we would still refer to the above options as being ATM.

Options that are ITM also have Intrinsic Value. This Intrinsic Value represents the amount that the option is worth at expiration, and the minimum amount that it is worth prior to expiration. So with XYZ trading at $53 the Dec 50 Call is worth at least $3 because we could exercise the Call, i.e., buy stock for $50, and then sell it in the open market for $53, netting $3. So for Calls, we see that the Intrinsic Value is equal to the difference between S and X. Likewise for Puts, if the stock is trading at $48, the Dec 50 Put has an Intrinsic Value of $2. We can exercise the Put, i.e. sell the stock for $50, and buy it back in the open market for $48. So for Puts, the Intrinsic Value is equal to X - S.

Another way to look at it is that the Intrinsic Value represents the amount that an option is ITM. So you might hear an options trader refer to the above Call as being $3 in the money, or the Put as being $2 in the money. Note that Intrinsic Value cannot be negative and it is zero for ATM and OTM options.

Okay, so how do we know the value of these options? Well, that's the million dollar question and we'll address it in later articles, so keep on reading. What about the price of an option? That's usually called the premium. This premium is the sum of 2 parts, namely; Intrinsic Value and Time Value. If we know the premium that an option is trading for, then we can easily calculate the Time Value by subtracting the Intrinsic Value from the premium.

By the way, we should remember that value and price are different. In fact, we'll end this article quoting the words of Warren Buffet: "Price is what you pay, Value is what you get."

Next time, we'll discuss how we can buy or sell options and learn how to draw profit and loss graphs at expiration of our basic positions. A recent mentoring student of mine mentioned that he had never seen these graphs before and now feels a lot more comfortable knowing how to determine at a glance the profitability of his options positions.

Attitude of Gratitude! Happy Thanksgiving!

I want to share with you this Thanksgiving my Attitude of Gratitude. Thank You. I'm posting the following message as my gratitude to everyone that follows my blog, and uses my website to empower themselves for financial success. Thank you and God Bless you.

A Secret Scrolls message from Rhonda Byrne, Creator of The Secret

Two words which will change your life!

There are two words that, when spoken, have the most unfathomable power to completely change your life. Two words which, when they pass your lips, will be the cause of bringing absolute joy and happiness to you. Two words that will create miracles in your life. Two words that will wipe out negativity. Two words that will bring you abundance in all things. Two words which, when uttered and sincerely felt, will summon all the forces and vibrations in the Universe to move all things for you.

The only thing standing between you, happiness, and the life of your dreams, are two words...

THANK YOU

Gratitude is one of the easiest and most powerful ways to transform your life. If you become truly grateful, you will magnetize absolute joy to you everywhere you go, and in everything you do. In fact, without gratitude, nothing can ever change. Your life will change to the degree that you use gratitude and begin to feel grateful. If you are just a little bit grateful, your life will change a little bit. If you are very grateful, your whole life will change. If you live gratitude every single day, you will become one of the greatest human beings on the planet, and the light of your life will uplift our world.

The greatest human beings who have ever lived showed us the way with gratitude, and by their example became shining lights in our history. Einstein said "thank you" hundreds of times every single day! Ancient wisdom dating back thousands of years gave us the truth about gratitude. Every single religion speaks of giving thanks. All the sages and saviors of the world demonstrated the use of gratitude in all their teachings.

Of the thousands of letters we receive from people whose lives have become miracles after experiencing The Secret , every single one of them has made gratitude their way of life. It is impossible to be negative when you are giving thanks. It is impossible to criticize or blame when you are feeling grateful. It is impossible to feel sad when you are in gratitude. Most people are sporadically grateful, however, to change your life with gratitude, a new way of learning how to be truly grateful is what will bring unlimited happiness into your life.

So how do you live in gratitude? Begin your day by feeling grateful. Be grateful for the bed you just slept in, the roof over your head, the carpet or floor under your feet, the running water, the soap, your shower, your toothbrush, your clothes, your shoes, the car that you drive, your job, your friends, your refrigerator that keeps your food cold. Be grateful for the weather, the sun, the sky, the birds, the trees, the grass, the rain, and the flowers. Be grateful for the stores that make it so easy to buy the things you need, the restaurants, the utilities and services and electrical appliances that make your life effortless. Be grateful for magazines and the books that you read. Be grateful for the chair that you sit on, and the pavement that you walk on. Be grateful for your favorite music that sweeps you away, and for movies that make you feel good. Be grateful for your phone that connects you with people, for your computer, for the electricity that lights up your life. Be grateful for air travel that flies you everywhere. Be grateful for the roads and traffic lights that keep the traffic in order. Be grateful to those who built our bridges. Be grateful for your pet, for your child, for your loved ones, for your eyes that enable you to read this. Be grateful for your imagination. Be grateful that you can think! Be grateful that you can speak. Be grateful that you can laugh and smile. Be grateful that you can breathe! Be grateful that you are alive! Be grateful that you are You! Be grateful that there are two words that can change your life!

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

The more that you practice gratitude the more deeply you will feel it in your heart, and the depth of the feeling is the key. The more deeply and sincerely you feel it, the more you will bring absolute bliss and happiness on every single subject. Watch what happens in your life when you practice gratitude every single day and in every single moment and in every opportunity that you can. Remember, if you are criticizing, you are not being grateful. If you are blaming, you are not being grateful. If you are complaining, you are not being grateful. If you are feeling tension, you are not being grateful. If you are rushing, you are not being grateful. If you are in a bad mood, you are not being grateful.

To understand the power and the magic of gratitude, you have to experience it for yourself. So why not begin by deciding to find 100 things a day to be grateful for? As you practice gratitude every day, it won't take long before gratitude is your natural state of being, and when it happens you will have unlocked one of the greatest Secrets to Life.

This week the United States is celebrating giving thanks with Thanksgiving Day. To inspire everyone to use gratitude, not just for one day but for every single day, The Secret is giving away 9,000 special edition Secret Gratitude Journals, which are beautiful, leather-bound journals. This gift is one journal per person, and the only cost for you is shipping.

For The Secret Video, click here.

There is just one other thing that I want you to know about Gratitude.....

When you are giving thanks, you FEEL GOOD!

Automated Forex Trading

Ever tried automated forex trading? Having a forex trading system that automatically takes positions, sets stop-loss, and take profits point targets? The first thing I can think of is more time. Its frees up your time so you can enjoy other things other than staring at your computer screen for hours on end.

There's a AutoTrader Forex Platform that you can diversify your portfolio between 100+ strategies with automated trade execution. This AutoTrader Forex Platform allows you to automatically execute trades 24 hrs/day following strategies from multiple signal providers, saving you thousands per month in Alert subscription fees. It's like having a staff of professional traders working for you 24 hrs a day and you only pay $1 per 10k round-turn lot, and it includes free forex charts with automated alerts.

Benefits Features of Automated Forex Trading

1. Real-time alerts to Buy or Sell a specific currency pair are generated by the Forex charting software.

2. A Buy or Sell arrow appears on your chart along with a pop-up window and an audio alarm to get your attention.

3. An email alert is immediately sent from a remote server to your email address and/or to your cell phone via text message. A second email soon follows with the Stop-Loss and Limit information. No software is required to be running on your computer to receive email/SMS alerts.

4. You execute the trade on your forex brokerage account or have trades automatically executed using the AutoTrader software. There's no need to keep your computer running for the AutoTrader to execute trades on your brokerage account. All trades are managed from a remote server.

How the Automated Forex Signals Work

The Automated Forex Trading System is as easy as BUY and SELL. The Automated Forex Signal Alerts appear as a Blue "UP" Arrow for a Buy or Red "DOWN" Arrow for a Sell. A Gray Arrow indicates an Exit signal from the previous open position. The software keeps each signal as an open trade position until one of the following occurs; 1. profit target is reached, 2. stop-loss is triggered, or 3. a reverse buy/sell entry signal is generated (meaning you need to close the current position and open a new trade going the other direction). These automated alerts also sound an audio alarm on your computer and, if you choose, you can set your charts to send these alerts to you by e-mail or cell phone as a text message.

Financial Manias

How To Recognize a Financial Mania When You're Smack Dab in the Middle of One

When you're caught in the middle of a bad storm, you don't really care whether it's a tropical depression or a full-strength hurricane. You just know you're hanging on for dear life. The same idea applies to financial markets. When a market is trending up strongly, it's hard to tell whether it's just a bull market or a more dangerous financial mania.

The recent tremendous ride up for global and U.S. financial markets, including the Dow, looks and feels more like a mania than a mere bull, says Elliott Wave International analyst Peter Kendall. This distinction is important to recognize in the rising stage, because manias always result in a crash that takes them back beneath their starting point.

Kendall recently published his research into current financial manias throughout the world in SFO (Stocks, Futures and Options) magazine. The article, titled "Financial Manias and the Trade of a Lifetime," suggests an even more stunning finish for the current manias: "The speed and global scope of the unfolding credit crisis suggest that most of the fast-rising markets of the last decade will crash in unison," he writes.

Editor's note: Elliott Wave International invites you to read the full five-page article with charts from the October 2007 SFO magazine by Elliott Wave International's Pete Kendall called "Financial Manias and the Trade of a Lifetime."

As co-editor of The Elliott Wave Financial Forecast, Kendall searches for trends that help traders to move in and out of markets. By comparing other historic manias with the impressive rise of the DJIA since the late 1970s, he focuses on the skyscraper pattern that they all have in common. The four historical manias are the Dutch Tulip mania of the 1630s, the South Sea bubble of 1720, the U.S. stock crash of 1921-1932 and the dot.com bust of the 1990s and early 2000s. Once you can see the similarities, you will be better prepared to face the music when the crash comes. As Kendall writes, "once the belief that the markets will always rise becomes widespread, it actually signals the start of a price swing that tends to be a career-breaker for any trader who tries to oppose it."

He also discusses current manias, such as the Nikkei, which has yet to return to its start after a manic rise to its all-time high in December 1989, and the Dow, which reversed from its rise in 2000 but made a U-turn in 2002. The starting point for the Dow's mania as shown in the chart included in the article is at the 1000 level.

Kendall, who is also writing a book about financial manias, titled The Mania Chronicles, describes five telltale signs that help an investor to tell the difference between a regular bull market and a mania. It's a mania if:

1. There is no upside resistance, and rising prices seem to be perpetual.
2. Everyone in the market looks like an expert.
3. There is a flight from quality investments to riskier investments.
4. As financial bubbles pop in one area, they bubble up in others.
5. The crash after the peak takes back all the gains the mania made.

No. 5 can be viewed only with hindsight. But the first four signs provide essential clues to what's shaping up in the markets.

"By studying past mania experiences, traders can gain valuable insight into the collective emotions that drive their markets," writes Kendall. "It's possible to make significant money in the advancing stages of a mania with no knowledge of its existence. But there is nothing like recognizing a mania for what it is in real time to help a trader keep those gains and deal with the relentless crash after it peaks."

In the last part of the SFO article, he asks the key question, Are we at the peak yet? Find out his answer by reading the whole article for yourself.

High-Probability Swing Trades

If you had a stock trading method that let you discover when a stock was about to make a massive move UP or DOWN, and then showed you, step-by-step, how to take advantage of that move to potentially pull profit out of the markets... would you be
interested?

I was among a select group of traders who was lucky enough to get a "preview copy" of the profit pulling trading course that has the trading market chomping at the bit (and that SOLD OUT over 5 times in the past year). And for just a few more days,
you have a pretty good chance at getting one, too.

It's called Quantum Swing Trader, and was created by 30+ year trading veteran Bill Poulos. Since its release, thousands of traders from all over the globe have been clamoring to get their hands on it.

Why all the excitement? I'll tell you why.

The "sweet spot" of Quantum Swing Trader is that Bill shows you how to take just a few common indicators, but use them in an uncommon way to "pinpoint" the spot in any stock where it has a high probability of making a massive move UP or DOWN, but not
stay the same.

This is a big deal, because traders have the potential to make the really big money when the market makes these kinds of moves. And Bill shows you how easy it is to take advantage of these situations, again and again.

This course is HUGE. Heck, the box that it arrived in weighed about 5 or 6 pounds. But Here are some of the highlights that really stood out for me:

Bill's "Fre e Trade" strategy which is the goal of every trade he teaches you to place. This lets you get into a position and lock in some early profit. Every trade should be like this ;-)

How to quickly scan over 8,000 stocks every night in seconds with Bill's search criteria to find the stocks that have a high-probability of entering into a potentially profitable position.

Bill's Profit Feeder service, which "spoon feeds" you his highest-probability stocks every night.

The 2 "cheat sheet" blueprints that summarize the entire method in one place so you don't need to spend hours hunting through the materials after you've studied it to find what you want.

Spend no more than 20 minutes a night applying the method.

There's a ton more, including a dedicated section just for beginners, a full year of student support, and some really unique bonuses, but you'll need to check out his web page to see everything for yourself.

If I had to sum up Quantum Swing Trader in 3 points, they would have to be:

The method is deceptively simple, yet profoundly powerful.

Bill's unique "immersive" teaching style makes it extremely easy and entertaining to learn the method.

This is one the highest-quality courses I've ever seen on the market. All the audio is crystal-clear, the videos are superb, and the full color manual is a breeze to get through.

But here's the deal . . . not every one will get a chance to own a copy of Quantum Swing Trader, and here's why:

Bill's only releasing limited copies to the trading community, so he can make sure he can provide support and focus to his next group of students for his course.

Finally, to make it super easy for you to try out Quantum Swing Trader in your home, Bill is also going to give you a guaranty. So what do you have to lose? Not much. And I believe you have a whole lot to gain.

Here's the link for a letter that Bill wrote giving you all the details. Again, I can't promise this link will work because he may already have sold out (again):

Good day, and good trading!

P.S. Don't forget, be sure to get in on this course before it's gone. Honestly, the offer may already be closed, and you'll only be able to wonder what this step-by- step course COULD have done for your trading. Try it today by clicking here.

Swing Trades 2

Yesterday I gave you the scoop on the insiders trading guide that reveals some of the specific tactics that all successful traders use to:

Trade in less then 20 minutes a day, maximize their profit potential, know exactly what to do every single time they trade, no more guessing, and a lot more.

And already, many of my readers took the next step and reserved their copy of the companion trading course to this guide that's been proven again and again to give you an "unfair advantage" in the markets.

The "proof" is pouring in. Click here to see it all here.

Here's just one quote from a trader who's on the path to achieving his lifelong dream using this trading course.

"Your course is a true, complete, defined, profitable system. Setups give you high probability trades, and that gives you confidence and certainty. Entries take the guesswork out of opening a trade. Exit rules eliminat e the grief of deciding
when to close a trade and still allow you to have the best of all scenarios. I've been at it exactly one month now, and my account value is up 10%. I know now that I can make a living trading. That's been a dream of mine for 20 years." Rob Rice, Franklin, Ohio

A limited number of copies of this course are being released to the trading community right now. As I'm writing this message to you, the priority enrollment page shows only 41 more copies available.

If you're already content with your trading results, you probably don't need this course... heck, you probably don't need any course.

But if you have a sneaking suspicion that your trading results could be improved (even dramatically improved), then you really should investigate this groundbreaking, step-by-step multimedia trading course before they're all gone.

Soros Forecasts 'Serious' US Economic Correction

Two of the biggest global financial market players, and two of my favorite investors traders, are George Soros, and Jim Rogers. When they talk, I and many others like me listen very closely. These guys right or wrong have the ability to move markets with what they say, and what they do with the billions they invest.

As an add in note to this article, Bill Gross CIO of Pimco, the worlds largest bond firm, has made a statement today that the subprime crisis is far from over. I'm inclined to agree with him for a number of reasons.

Soros Forecasts 'Serious' US Economic Correction from CNBC.com

Billionaire investor George Soros forecast on Monday that the U.S. economy is "on the verge of a very serious economic correction" after decades of overspending.

"We have borrowed an awful lot of money and now the bill is coming to us," he said during a lecture at the New York University, also adding that the war on terror "has thrown America out of the rails."

Asked whether a recession was inevitable, Soros said: "I think we are definitely in for a slowdown that I think will be a bigger slowdown than (Fed Chairman Ben) Bernanke is seeing."

Famous for his speculative attack on the Bank of England that made him more than $1 billion, Soros declined to nominate which currencies are more vulnerable currently. He also declined to comment specifically on the dollar.

"I know exactly where the currencies are going to but I'm not going to tell that to you," he told the audience.

Last week, investment guru Jim Rogers, who co-founded the Quantum Fund with Soros in the 1970s, recommended selling the dollar as well as U.S. investment banks and U.S. housing stocks.

Soros said that, for now, China is the "absolute winner" in economic terms, and will continue to see its economy soaring during the next few years.

"Now it is going through this fantastic transformation but in 10 years time I think you may well have a financial crisis in China," he said.

"Options Intensive" Training Scottsdale Arizona November 8

The Options Intensive Training is on November 8th at the Embassy Suites, Scottsdale Arizona. Don't miss this is a four day options trading workshop. Click here to review the "Options Intensive" Training in Scottsdale Arizona.

Here's just a few things you will learn from this options training program. Below is a summary of 3 Common Myths of Options Trading.

There are many misconceptions about options trading. I'm going to clear three of them up here.

Myth #1: Options trading is risky.

Options trading can be risky, if you don't know what you're doing. By creating a trading plan and following it, you automatically eliminate a large part of the risk.

The nice thing about options is you get leverage. You put up a few hundred dollars, yet you get to control a few thousand dollars' worth of stock.

Of course, your option can expire worthless. This happens sometimes. After tracking options for an entire year, Lawrence G. McMillan discovered that 32% of all options contracts expire worthless.

But that means 68% of all options contracts expire with value of some kind. And with the right trading rules, I'm sure you could raise your odds even more.

Myth #2: Options trading requires hard work.

Some traders think they'll make more money by working hard at trading. But that's not the truth.

I've discovered that traders who have a strong work ethic usually make less than the trader who "works" only 20 minutes a day.

I think it's caused by "paralysis of analysis." One guy works to hard, gets confused, then picks bad trades. Another guy puts in 20 focused minutes a day, stays clear on what he's trying to do, and wins!

What's more, if you work too hard at trading, you'll burn out! Ultimately, trading is a marathon, not a sprint. Just relax and be Marlon Brando cool.

Myth #3: People want to trade options.

Some people look at trading as an "end." But it shouldn't be an end at all. It's actually a means to an end. A way to achieve your dreams.

Do you want to quit your job? Do you want a big luxury home in a gated community? Do you want a BMW or a Lexus?

Let's face it. You don't want to trade options. You want the lifestyle that options trading can provide.

So let's figure out how to create the lifestyle you desire, and let's figure out how to do it in only 20 minutes a day. That's really what my Million-Dollar Options Trading Intensive is about.

Good day and good options trading!
