Financial & Economic Slang Terms for the 21st century

The 21st century has given birth to some very interesting terms used in the financial and economic media and blogosphere. Although you won’t see many of these terms in standard dictionaries, they are gaining in popularity and becoming more widely used. Perhaps they are being used more and more as readers around the world become better informed about what is really happening in our increasing complex and corrupt world.

Here are 13 terms you may come across along with my own definitions and some examples:

Crony Capitalism (compound noun)

*Market Analysis*

The overdue Wile E. Coyote sell off is getting closer. It’s taken longer than expected to roll over because SPX / DOW etc daily, weekly AND monthly uptrends are simultaneously completing a protracted topping process. The resultant downtrend will have good momentum. Be careful folks: it will be nasty.

The Future We Face

I am not big on posting long articles for folks to suffer with.  However, I read this one and I believe it is excellent.  It is like something CM would write.  The article covers all aspects of the current financial situation in such a manner than even though it is long it reads fast and is interesting.  There is a lot of data presented but most of it is in graphical form so it is fairly easy to consume.  My hat is off to the dude who wrote it.

Timing gold & silver purchase

Trying to figure out how to time a gold & silver purchase...

I read an interesting comment that the markets are pricing in QE3 as a certainty already, but in order for the Fed to pursue QE3, markets and the economy would need to drop, in order for more QE to be justified. What if we will float from QE2 to QE3 without much of a pause or market plunge in the middle? This way gold and silver might not drop, but would just gradually continue appreciating vs. the dollar.

Executive Summary

  • GDP growth requires energy, and the Fukushima disaster has just set back nuclear's expected contribution by years (decades, likely)
  • Trading strategies for an end to QE, by asset class (stocks, bonds, currencies, commodities, precious metals, real estate)
  • Why this will be more damaging to the economy than the 2008 correction
  • Fukushima's likely impact on the energy market
  • Why the priority now for investors should be on wealth preservation
  • The odds QE will resume later in the year
