TrimTabs’ CEO Charles Biderman joined the “Bloomberg Advantage Podcast” this week with Carol Massar and Corey Johnson to discuss the Hedge Fund Sentiment Survey. TrimTabs Investment Research, along with BarclayHedge , announced that the hedge fund industry redeemed $850 million and redemptions from hedge funds totaled $34.6 billion over the past six months, the largest consecutive quarterly outflow since June 2009.
The Fed will not be able to raise interest rates this year. Why? Sustainable economic growth has not and is not occurring. While most economists are predicting a sustainably growing US economy that will lead the rest of the world out of stagnation, outside of more rapid employment growth there is no evidence that is happening.

Chris Hamilton’s Fundamentally Flawed uses publicly available data from the Bureau of Labor Service, Census, Federal Reserve, US Energy Information Agency, Congressional Budget Office, etc. to show a much different reality than what is portrayed by the government, the Federal Reserve, Wall Street economists, and the consensus viewpoint. From identical inputs, Fundamentally Flawed shows stunningly different outputs than the consensus and that all this is being done to mask the bankruptcy of America and most advanced economies.

The year 2015 is when the baby boom (born ’45-’55) collectively turns 60-70 years old. Half will be 65 or older and at least 80% will be eligible for full or reduced early Social Security benefits. So, as boomers depart the 65 and younger set, we need to focus on what’s behind them. And shocker, it’s not good. READ MORE
WWII is still reshaping our economic reality. The massive global loss of life in WWII and its birth dearth during the war created a demographic hole (unusually high death / unusually low births over a 5 to 10 year period). The subsequent baby booms in the US and globally in Japan, Europe, and so many more locations which were affected by the war created a “pig in the python” moment. READ MORE

Last year, I founded Biderman’s Practices of Success, or B-POS, a 501(3)(c) non-profit organization whose current mission is to create an online course that transforms transition-aged vulnerable former foster youth.

The main premise is success in life is being able to do whatever it takes to be fully present and totally engaged in the areas of life important to us. READ MORE
Yen weakness is relative dollar strength is gold weakness…or said otherwise in the land of the blind, the one eyed man is king. If the correlation hasn’t become obvious by now…the carry trade around the Yen and the BOJ’s plan to depreciate or bust seems to have rather outsized impacts across the market spectrum. My interest is the relationship of gold and the Yen. Seems the weakening of the Yen is driving the price of gold…down. Of course the Yen’s weakness is conversely the dollar’s relative strength…but from ’09 and particularly since Japan’s December 2012 turn to “Abenomics”, Gold and the Yen have moved tick for tick. The more Yen Japan prints, the farther the price of gold falls…ahhhh the irony that gold, the finite measuring stick of infinite currencies, seems now only to be measuring the depths TPTB will go to hide currencies relative worth!
