Last week in Money and Markets, I pointed out that Federal Reserve chief Janet Yellen isn’t off-base in saying stock prices are “quite high.” In fact, according to several traditional market valuation measures, stocks do look a bit pricey right now. Don’t get me wrong, U.S. stocks are nowhere near “irrational exuberance” levels, at least not yet, but that doesn’t…

Don’t like the economic data? Then just adjust the numbers again! That seems to be the Federal Reserve’s latest plan in the wake of awful first-quarter GDP figures. You see, the…

The smart money, the kind that moves first at the slightest sign of trouble, is on the move again. In a market I’ve previously reported on. A market I call the “off-the-grid” market. I can’t say I blame these savvy investors. If I had the kind of money we’re talking about, I’d be doing the same thing. Getting off the…
