CORRECTION: This Trade Was A Big Mistake! - This post CORRECTION: This Trade Was A Big Mistake! appeared first on Daily Reckoning. I hope you’re sitting down—because this one’s gonna blow your socks off. Ready? I messed up. Big time. I totally screwed the pooch. And it cost you money… There, I said it. But before you show up at my door with a pitchfork, we’ve got plenty of time to fix my mistake. And that means you’ve got the chance to score some fat profits from a stoc... http://ow.ly/2X9qmC

A New Equilibrium for Oil Prices - This post A New Equilibrium for Oil Prices appeared first on Daily Reckoning. I just got back from Denver, CO and I’ve got plenty to share with you. Flight: $419 Hotel: $571 Admission: $895 Taxis: $140 Meals: ~$60 Turbulent travel to and from the Rockies: Priceless! I was in town for a big shale convention, focused on the Bakken and Niobrara shale plays out west. The “who’s who” of the west were there – including Hess, Whiting Petroleu... http://ow.ly/2X7ham

Before You Reach for That Pain Pill… - This post Before You Reach for That Pain Pill… appeared first on Daily Reckoning. About a year ago, I was skiing at Whistler Mountain in British Columbia with two British physicians. I had hurt my wrist in a fall, so I went into the lodge and emerged with a package of aspirin. The British doctors both glanced at the package, and before I could take two of them, as I normally would, they eagerly mentioned that the normal dose of asp... http://ow.ly/2X6PZO

Notes on Deflation From Tokyo - This post Notes on Deflation From Tokyo appeared first on Daily Reckoning. I arrived in Japan on Friday and have been exploring Tokyo with my 16-year-old son, Calvin. Earlier this year, I wrote to you about the deflationary chill affecting U.S. and European markets. I used the metaphor of an ice age, borrowing from the late Barton Biggs. And I focused on the experience of what it’s like to live in a financial ice age and how to invest in ... http://ow.ly/2X3XxF

Five Books Jim Rickards Recommends You Read Right Now - This post Five Books Jim Rickards Recommends You Read Right Now appeared first on Daily Reckoning. We begin today’s reckoning with a bold statement: A list of must-reads from Jim Rickards is to investors what the latest mushy title added to Oprah’s cult-followed book club is to middle-aged housewives. Besides, now that it’s starting to warm up (at writing, it’s a balmy 66 degrees in charm city) you’re probably dayd... http://ow.ly/2X0cjn

Could This 1,000 Year-Old Treatment Cure The Next Superbug? - This post Could This 1,000 Year-Old Treatment Cure The Next Superbug? appeared first on Daily Reckoning. In the 1930s, physicians frequently had to tell patients with terrible infections that there was little they could do for them. In the late 1940s and early 1950s, that began to change as first penicillin and then tetracycline became available. Doctors became demigods overnight, actually able to cure seriou... http://ow.ly/2WZFWL

3 Reasons Why You Should Welcome a Stock Market Correction - This post 3 Reasons Why You Should Welcome a Stock Market Correction appeared first on Daily Reckoning. Remember Sanford and Son? Fred Sanford would always clutch his chest whenever he got anxious, saying “This is the big one.” Of course it never happened. And so many market watchers are like Fred Sanford these days. Whenever the market has a down day they shout “This is the big one” because they think it’s al... http://ow.ly/2WZgQJ

Central Banking Debunked in One Blog - This post Central Banking Debunked in One Blog appeared first on Daily Reckoning. Blogger Ben’s work is already done. In his very first substantive post as a civilian yesterday he gave away all the secrets of the monetary temple. “The Bernank” actually refuted the case for modern central banking in one blog. In fact, he did it in one paragraph. This one: “A similarly confused criticism often heard is that the Fed is somehow distort... http://ow.ly/2WNqVm

Boeing and SpaceX Fly Together - This post Boeing and SpaceX Fly Together appeared first on Daily Reckoning. Getting into space is getting more complex, and a lot cheaper. A recent launch typifies the new power of private rocketry as well as the ability of competitors like SpaceX and Boeing to cooperate to make the price tag of a launch cheaper. On March 1, SpaceX used its workhorse Falcon 9 rocket to carry two Boeing-built satellites into orbit. Boeing is no stranger t... http://ow.ly/2WN1s9
