The last video I watched was more than telling. I am sure one of you have the hyperlink. He explained how he was "in the know" with big hedge fund managers that were going to literally kill the dollar. I am sure I did not quote that verbatim.

1st Issue : I am more than 100% confident he doesn't know one Hedge Fund Manager with AUM > 500 Million & < 1 Billion, which is incredibly minimal. He might at best know someone that runs a comical Commodity Pool.


I see no reasoning here to trust your word of his as of yet.

Like this? Ah, I think we're getting to the bottom of the issue here.

3rd Issue : HF managers will not be in the game of showing their cards. This will literally shore up liquidity where it hurts them the most. Here is an analogy that is easy to follow. If you are driving down the road in a rural area, running out of gas with no cell phone, is there a price you will not pay for gas at this point?


Yes.

Well I don't have a wife, but if I did and she was due to deliver within the next few weeks, I'd be sure not to leave home or get myself into a situation where I couldn't be there for her and the baby during the delivery process.

I must have missed something here. Lies such as what? Everyone lies, The biggest liars seem to be the one's who convince their selves they are honest.

Why would you mention that guy? What do the two have in common? Reinhardt ran a scam and gave people practically nothing as for information.. that's not at all like what Max Keiser does, especially considering the guests he has and that he's not selling anything.

Are you sure about that?

Again, anyone that ever tells you they have foreknowledge of anything in the financial marketplace that has made this statement publicly has either:

a) Committed a fraud

b) Just played you like a fiddle


So what? Max openly claims to be a punk that's fighting the corruption. The system is a con. It's unconscionable to not speak up what's going down and give as many people the heads up. If an international agency wants to come pick him up, my guess would be that he's clever enough to evade their detection. I guess it's a good thing he doesn't live in the U.S. anymore!

I'm not sure quite how to reply to your laughable post, so I will leave it at this.

Good luck in the future, you will need it.

I'm not in the business anymore. I reside now as a lowly actuary and use my quantitative abilities to afford opportunities in the professional sports arena. Added many years to my lifespan. Stress isn't one of the best things I deal with.

Just keep what I have said in the back of your mind. At one point it may start to make an extreme amount of sense.

I remember Max telling the story about Wall Street guys telling him - bragging - that they were going to destroy Iceland's currency.

Hi Mary Rose. Yeah, the arbitrageurs booked heavy profits off the carry, with the Icelandic banking cartel complicit to the bitter end. Max was one of the frontrunners on that story...all over it like a cheap suit. Kinda interesting that his hedge fund was named "Karmabanque"...no ?

Maybe someone should start a Max Keiser Appreciation Thread ? An archive of sorts. Along with providing a space where we can catalog our favorites, it might smoke-out any apologists, plants, shills, and assorted Wall St. "spin-masters" that may be lurking about.

Enjoyed your vid by the way

i have taken note of your points. i caught the max show today and must say the guy plus stacey do not cease to captivate me. you must understand from my point of view that there is no-one, period, that expresses information on a level that i can understand with added wit! there is no person carrying a torch west of moscow (rt) disclosing information that would otherwise be left unbroadcasted. you have been it seems privy to a system that i have limited knowledge in. my choices of knowledge are in the wide band and i consider all information.
i wish you well in your future endeavours but until proven otherwise max keiser is still at the top of my watch list with the limited time i have.

I have to say that I am disappointed in two things about Keiser. They have nothing to do with finance.

Keiser and Herbert both have made comments that seem to indicate that they believe in man-made global warming.

And Keiser has called Rand Paul, the candidate and Ron Paul's son, a "dick," and today there is a nasty thread on maxkeiser.com about an episode associated with a Rand Paul debate where the headline is "Rand Paul sucks." I believe the episode in question is a staged event, but by Stacy's comments it's clear that she's buying that it was a real episode and an evil Rand Paul supporter stomped on a lady's head.

I think Keiser is an expert on financial matters, but it is distressing to me that I think he's doing harm in these other areas.

I'm glad you have an interest in financial matters. Just remember what he "discloses" to you are half-truths mixed in with factual information from what I have seen. I should also reiterate that I have only seen 2 videos so I do not have a large sample to base this on. There is no substitute for your own research. Good luck to you as well of course.

Dance4life, please tell us why Max wouldn't know about the markets, seeing that he programmed code for the trading programs and worked in it until recently. Being an insider he seems to spot trends that may affect us all. He may showboat to get viewers and that is his job, but his talk about investment is generally about buying gold (not numismatic coin gold) and wait for the correction (and fall of the dollar) to jump back in. He even says that he is in all gold at the moment, but qualifies that by saying others should do their own research in investing. He doesn't full-on suggest investments though, as his show is to report on the financial markets. His overall take on the markets has been pretty good as I see it, but I'm no accountant or stockbroker.

Dance4life, please feel to critique Max as it may help us all learn what you find unreliable about him. That's what we're all about on ATS…critique and sharing.

Share away.

My original position was not to carry on like this regarding the previous subject, but I will try to answer your question to the best of my ability.

1. Knowing how to develop code does not mean anything. I know many programmers and most are regarded as the work mules. I should also add most are not worth their weight in [be creative]. Go and download any run of the mill retail software that connects to a brokerage firm. It will let you write your own code. Now you are on the "inside". Do you get where I am going with this? I also doubt he developed anything at all but the aforementioned fiction.

2. I do not understand these "insider" comments. The only insiders are policy makers and people in power that are privy to information before public release [ex. Fed, Congressional xyz]. This goes into my previous point about him taking advantage of the ill-informed on the first page of this thread. Trust me, this is very far from the truth.

3. Showboat, yes. Again, I'll ask the question, do you trust sensationalists that have to lie to get their point across? I guess it is just me, but I do not trust most people and I certainly wouldn't trust this guy to watch my goldfish while on holiday. What else is he "showboating" about? If you ask me the greater percentage of everything he says. Just my opinion, but I am not wrong. No offense.

4. I own a gold watch, that is plenty for me. Again, let me ask you this. How much of your entire investment portfolio do you think should be invested in a commodity with such volatility? I am not going to get into what to invest in personally as everyone has their own needs and risk tolerance. But I invite you to research Modern Portfolio Theory. These are very complex subjects and cannot be explained in this forum. Without getting into it he is taking on an exuberant amount of portfolio risk among other things (if any of this is true). Modern Portfolio Theory inherently believes that long term investors are risk adverse. What it all boils down to is asset diversification. There has been Nobel Prizes handed out for the complex mathematics behind all of this, so it is not really a debatable subject. But you should research this subject yourself.

You should speak to a CRPC at minimum to decide how to plan for your future and your taxable estate. By the way, have you seen a historical chart of the price of gold adjusted for inflation? If not, you are only fooling yourself. I make no claims on the price any commodity can or will reach, but you should do your own research, this is correct.

5. I have already stated what he has been lying about regarding HF managers etcetera. That should be a big enough of a red flag for you I believe. I have not personally seen enough footage to pick him apart. Honestly, I will not either as I view it as a complete waste of my time. Again, no offense to the followers.


Hopefully that has helped. I do not wish to condemn anyone or any individual's personal beliefs going further. If you (or whomever) have anymore questions regarding the above it would be best handled with a private message.

Have a good evening.

The following are from Max's website. Are any of these lies, or of no consequence in determining his qualifications?


Max Keiser is the inventor of the virtual specialist technology / prediction markets, Hollywood Stock Exchange, Karmabanque, and PirateMyFilm

Max is a former Wall Street broker.

From the wiki, Max's predictions:




Predictions Throughout Keiser's shows he has been known for making predictions: * In the September 2004 issue of The Ecologist magazine, Keiser correctly predicted the 2008 collapse of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac when he wrote, "My guess is that the two stocks that look the likeliest to implode at the hands of derivative-wielding Wall Street financial types (and other fundamentalists) preying on a US economy made weak by cheap money are Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac."[22] * In 2006 he correctly predicted that sub-prime mortgage-backed securities would be the cause of recession by 2008.[18][dead link][citation needed] * In 2007 he correctly predicted the break-down of Iceland's economy in 2008.[23] * In July 2008, accused Lehman Brothers of "trying to out-Enron Enron", accusing the bank of "Peek-a-boo accounting", an attempt to mis-report the bank's wealth by gaming the regulatory system

Wiki: Max Keiser's Predictions


From the same article:


Karmabanque was a hedge fund founded by Keiser which sought to profit from any decline in equity-value of companies who are susceptible to boycott from environmental groups.[25] The hedge fund's progress was followed monthly in the Ecologist Magazine, edited by Zac Goldsmith.[26] Its targets included Coca-Cola[27] and McDonalds. The Karmabanque hedge fund project was designed to simultaneously short-sell companies while funnelling profits from this activity into environmental and ethical-business pressure groups which further act to drive the price down. Describing the project, Keiser states "The Internet allows people, activists, from all over the world to gather, or swarm, and hit a company where it hurts most -- in their stock price."[28]


I have the feeling that Max's heart is in the right place, and that he knows enough about what goes on on Wall Street to be advising us on what the problems are so that we can understand some of the complexities better.

Exactly, I have a strong feeling his heart is definitely in the right place ... but some people seem to be a bit too quick to judge other people's character. I have no doubt that he's manipulating things, and profiting in the process, but if the intent is to do good ... what's the big deal
lol.

Well, we do have to be careful not to say the end justifies the means, because I don't think that's the case.

Are you referring to Karmabanque? I don't know anything about it. I've never heard him talk about it.

I certainly think it depends on the ends and the means. It's not as black and white of an evil as some make it out to be.

What is "it"?

Not sure what you're referring to.
