Whether amateur or expert in trading stock options or futures, we promise to pleasantly surprise you through the quality & quantity of our services. We use several paid services as well as trusted friends/sources in the investment banking and biotech industries.

Our team is tilted fiscal conservative, Independent, and Tea Party. We have blogged against Obama's bigger government and higher tax agenda before 90%+ of blogs and mass media outlets. Since Obama's true stripes have become crystal clear in favor of more regulations, fees, and taxes, we have chosen to tone down our criticism and focus on sending very aggressive & profitable stock option trades.

'Butt' our fattest Political Correspondent, Capitalist Pig Bob on Facebook, reminds us the 2012 U.S. Presidential election is just 20 months away; one of our duties must be to keep noses to the grindstone and inform of the good, bad, & ugly candidates as they announce ...

The Psychology of the Call blog team (POTC) promises to keep you plugged in to the politics of money & banking as they evolve through a very heated 2012 campaign. The paradigm of capitalism is changing as more emerging market economies attempt to mimic America's free-market system. This is causing a major finacial migraine for the U.S.A., yet we believe this is a cyclical macro socioeconomic phenomenon that was destined to toll.

What a time to be alive. Best Wishes for a Happy & Healthy Spring Ahead,

Lowering Corp Taxes is Key to a Higher S&P 500 ..

WASHINGTON (Dow Jones)--The Senate Finance Committee next week will embark on what is likely to be an exhaustive review of the U.S. tax code, as it hears from a quartet of former Treasury tax officials.

Sen. Max Baucus (D., Mont.), chairman of the Finance panel, plans to hold tax hearings throughout 2011, and aides say they could number as many as two dozen. 

It is partly a response to President Barack Obama's call for lower corporate tax rates and a simpler tax code. Many lawmakers and private-sector analysts predict much discussion, but little actual legislative action to re-shape the tax code prior to the 2012 presidential elections.

Nevertheless, the hearings promise the closest and most thorough look a congressional committee has given the tax code in years.

Five former assistant Treasury secretaries for tax policy will testify before the Finance panel on March 1: Fred Goldberg and Jon Talisman, who served in the Bill Clinton administration; and Mark Weinberger, Pam Olson, and Eric Solomon, who served under former President George W. Bush.

"Today there are just too many special benefits in the tax code for one industry or another," Baucus said in a statement. "We need to figure out how to get rid of loopholes and simplify the system, so we can lower tax rates and keep our economy growing."

"Our tax system is burdensome, overly complex and stifles American competitiveness. It needs to be reformed," said Sen. Orrin Hatch of Utah, the senior Republican on the finance panel.

Future hearings of the Senate Finance Committee will address such topics as how taxes impact economic efficiency and growth; tax code complexity; and distributional effects, or how the tax code impacts the rich, poor, and in-between, according to people with knowledge of the discussions.

In addition to those topics, some hearings are likely to break off segments of the code for the discussion: for instance, one could focus on taxes on the international profits of U.S. businesses, while another would focus on domestic corporate tax issues.

Aides cautioned that topics and approaches are still taking shape, as is the question of how frequently the hearings will occur.

Fed's Fisher Says No to QE III ...

NEW YORK (Dow Jones)--Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas President Richard Fisher reiterated Thursday he will oppose any effort to extend the central bank's $600 billion bond buying program beyond its current goal, according to Reuters.

The official was speaking as part of an event in Houston.

He also said he was seeing signs of rising price pressures.

Fisher is a voting member of the interest rate setting Federal Open Market Committee, and he has long expressed his discomfort with the program popularly known as QE2.

Natural-Gas Psychology Bearish; Perhaps an Opportunity Igniting ..

NEW YORK (Dow Jones)--Large noncommercial traders increased their net-short position in natural-gas futures by 2.8% during the week ended Feb. 8, the Commodity Futures Trading Commission reported Friday.

Speculative, or noncommercial, traders added 4,163 contracts to their long position in futures-only contracts and 10,285 contracts to their short position, yielding a net-short position of 225,254 contracts, up 6,122 from the previous week.

Open interest was 898,069, up 8% from the previous week.

In futures and options combined, noncommercial traders were net short 190,857 contracts, up 8,240 from the previous week.

Commercial traders were net long in futures-only contracts by 185,148 contracts. These traders added 25,184 contracts to their long position and 13,017 contracts to their short position.

The net long position is the difference between the number of long positions, or bets prices will rise, and short positions, or bets prices will fall.

Benchmark Nymex natural-gas futures fell by 7.1% during the week covered by the CFTC data.
