How bad can it be down there?

Banks have just announced another plan to save what is left from the sub-prime debacle. This is now the third attempt. First was the Super SIV Fund, which actually was not a Fund at all, because no money was put into it, there was only an intention, and Funds can’t live with promises, they need money.

Their second try was with the tax rebate. Most economists agree the fiscal stimulus is more like a future-hope then a nearby-certainty.

Now we are at the third attempt trying to save something from sub-prime, with the same cast that caused the sub-prime issues in the first place….So strange….

All this makes me wonder, how bad can it really be? Three attempts, a President and a Congress who pushed the bill as fast as it could, almost overnight, and a Fed that cuts every time it can.

Fundies and Trading
There is a constant question from some traders as to why anybody would ever need to consider the ‘F’ word when trading. Fundamentals: what is so damaging at looking at both Technical charts and having a Fundamental filter to gauge how many Lots to put on? Why is it that accepting that Technicals give us price points to trade, but Fundamentals determine the direction that we travel is so difficult for some traders to accept? Without a Fundamental Filter very few pure Technical traders would have seen this Dollar move coming today.
