Radio Interview: “Business Talk with Jim Campbell”

Posted by Larry Doyle on January 14th, 2014 5:12 AM |

I have truly had the great fortune of meeting some very interesting individuals via Sense on Cents.

As I recently wrote to somebody, I never could have written a book if there were no relationships that had emanated from writing this blog. In that spirit, a few years back I met a renowned business radio personality Jim Campbell after he found my blog.

I had a fabulous discussion with Jim that aired Sunday morning on his nationally syndicated radio show, “Business Talk with Jim Campbell.”

Jim’s easy manner and command of the subject matter made me feel like I was catching up with a former colleague. Jim Campbell is truly a pro’s pro. The interview touches on a wide array of topics. I hope readers will enjoy listening to this interview as much as I enjoyed giving it.

MarketWatch: Don’t Fall Victim to QE Trap

Posted by Larry Doyle on January 13th, 2014 9:08 AM |

I have a commentary running today on MarketWatch that addresses some perils and potential pitfalls stemming from the tapering of the Fed’s quantitative easing.

4 Ways The Fed Taper Puts Your Money at Risk: Don’t Fall Victim to The Fed’s QE Trap

“I don’t know what they are, but I know where they are!”

I had to chuckle when a fellow trader with whom I worked uttered that remark about the markets in which he trafficked. In so many words, he was admitting that he focused almost entirely on daily flows and technical developments within his market sector, while paying little attention to the underlying fundamentals of the securities themselves.

Ignoring fundamentals is dangerous.  (more…)

Interview on Lou Dobbs Tonight on Fox Business

Posted by Larry Doyle on January 11th, 2014 5:06 AM |

There is never any bad press. Although my interview on Lou Dobbs Tonight last evening may have only run for 3 plus minutes, the points covered go to the core of my recently released book.

I was about to connect and expose the third leg of the Wall Street-Washington conspiracy, that being the scandalous corruption within our regulatory system, when host Lori Rothman inquired about Dodd-Frank.

What didn’t we talk about last evening but is covered in the book? (more…)

Interview with Thom Hartmann of The Big Picture

Posted by Larry Doyle on January 10th, 2014 8:24 AM |

I was pleased to speak with Thom Hartmann of The Big Picture last evening. The clip runs a mere 7-plus minutes and starts at the 15-minute mark.

I will be on Lou Dobbs Tonight later this evening between 7-8PM on Fox Business.

Navigate accordingly.

JP Morgan – Madoff : Lots of ‘CYA’ But Little ‘KYC’

Posted by Larry Doyle on January 8th, 2014 7:46 AM |

Oh what a tangled web we weave when first we practice to deceive.

All too often we have heard senior level individuals from an array of financial institutions and regulatory agencies say that they too were deceived by the master swindler Bernie Madoff.

That sort of lame excuse might work for a naive young teenager duped by an online scam artist trying to make a quick buck. It certainly does not and should not hold any water for senior level bankers running an institution like JP Morgan. Why is that? (more…)

Book Reviews for In Bed with Wall Street

Posted by Larry Doyle on January 5th, 2014 11:53 AM |

I thank everybody who has already purchased In Bed with Wall Street that will be released this Tuesday. I also thank those in the media and blogosphere who have reviewed it. What have reviewers had to say?

The new book by Larry Doyle could be called a “must read”.  This reviewer would go even farther and say it should be required reading for every single American.

I am extremely impressed with the depth of research that went into this book.  Larry Doyle is uniquely qualified and prepared to write this book. And the result is a masterpiece!

-This book will clarify many things for which you may have had an incomplete picture.  It will give another example of the old saw:  You couldn’t make stuff like this up.  (more…)

FINRA Should Crack Down on Management

Posted by Larry Doyle on January 3rd, 2014 7:53 AM |

The lead article in this morning’s Wall Street Journal is entitled FINRA To Crack Down on Brokers with High Numbers of Complaints. This should be a good thing, right? Yes, it should.

The question still begs, though, why FINRA has been so amenable to expunging such an overwhelming percentage of complaints against brokers. Recall that just a few weeks back, I highlighted the fact that FINRA had expunged 96.9% of complaints lodged against brokers from mid-2009 through the end of 2011.

How might individuals know if a broker soliciting them is unscrupulous if a large number of complaints have been erased? Talk about a massive pardoning and significant do-over! But what is an even bigger problem in the industry than brokers with questionable business ethics?

Review: The Wolf of Wall Street

Posted by Larry Doyle on January 2nd, 2014 9:08 AM |

Martin Scorsese certainly knows how to make movies and Leonardo DiCaprio sure can act. The talents of both the director and the lead actor in The Wolf of Wall Street will attract many people to the theaters, and may win Scorsese and DiCaprio some awards.

The debauchery displayed by DiCaprio’s character Jordan Belfort and his band of morally degenerate colleagues at the bucket shop Stratton Oakmont generated a fair bit of laughter in the audience at yesterday’s show that I attended. The activities displayed may be the stuff of a frat-boy’s dreams but were in truth far more deranged than they were humorous.

Stratton Oakmont’s boiler room operation is not a reflection of the pursuit of the American dream run awry but rather of an industry that operates under a less than rigorous self-regulatory model. (more…)
