  • EDITORIAL: The Civil War of 2016
    motivated by the goals of the tea party movement seizing control of Darlington S C in 2016 occupying City Hall disbanding the city council and placing the mayor under house arrest The rebels set up checkpoints on Interstate 95 and Interstate 20 looking for illegal aliens It s a cartoonish and needlessly provocative scenario The article is a choppy patchwork of doctrinal jargon and liberal nightmare The authors make a quasi legal case for military action and then apply the Army s Operating Concept 2016 2028 to the situation They write bloodlessly that once it is put into play Americans will expect the military to execute without pause and as professionally as if it were acting overseas They claim that the Army cannot disappoint the American people especially in such a moment not pausing to consider that using such efficient deadly force against U S citizens would create a monumental political backlash and severely erode government legitimacy The vision is hard to take seriously As retired ArmyBrig Gen Russell D Howard a former professor at West Point observed earlier in his career I am a colonel colonels write a lot of crazy stuff but no one listens to colonels so I don t see the problem Twenty years ago then Air Force Lt Col Charles J Dunlap Jr created a stir with an article in Parameters titled The Origins of the American Military Coup of 2012 It carried a disclaimer that the coup scenario was purely a literary device intended to dramatize my concern over certain contemporary developments affecting the armed forces and is emphatically not a prediction The scenario presented in Small Wars Journal isn t a literary device but an operational lay down intended to present the rationale and mechanisms for Americans to fight Americans Col Benson and

  • JP Morgan Allegedly Telegraphed Silver Price Smashes Using Massive FAKE TRADES on Saxo Bank Platform
    the immediate remainder of the other trades Third every fake trade involved a violent down drop that appeared on the chart and immediately returned The individual and cumulative effect of the more than twenty five plus COMEX price drops that occurred after the Saxo signal was to cause COMEX prices to be lower than they otherwise would have been The effect of price movements on options positions is accentuated by the use of the Black Sholes type model to value options The Black Sholes options pricing model is a formula that created a delta which estimates the equivalent futures position for an options portfolio An option that is well in the money close to expiration will have a delta of approximately 1 for a call or negative 1 for a put meaning that owning the option is the equivalent of being long 1 futures contract for the call or short 1 futures contract for the put Likewise an option that is far out of the money close to expiration will have a delta of approximately 0 because it is unlikely that the option move to an in the money position As an option nears a point of being in the money the delta of the option approaches 0 5 Many options traders use the measure of the delta expressed in Black Sholes type models to hedge their delta exposure This means that if they hold many options even if the delta is substantially less than 1 and the option is out of the money they may need to sell or buy futures to hedge their delta exposure So for example if a trader is short 100 out of the money puts whose delta is 0 25 in order to be delta neutral the trader must sell 25 futures contracts For
