Collectible Cars Used As "Hard Assets"]]> You know it's bad when... The central bank inspired nominal price surge in everything expensive has not quite exhausted the greater fool trend-chasing muppet "wealth-builders" yet. As HedgeCo reports, Classic Auto Funds Limited (CAF) is launching several investment partnerships using collectable classic cars as the "hard asset". Forget oil-wells, real estate, or precious metals, as Robert Minnick (senior managing partner at CAF) states confidently, "many investors are recognizing the rising returns in specific classic cars as a low-risk asset." A "low-risk" "investment" indeed... what could possibly go wrong?

Inequalities abound (rich vs poor, corporate profits vs capex/jobs, bond yields vs growth hopes) but nowhere else is this more evident - given the ever-increasing crescendo of the drum-beat of war around the world - than in oil price volatility. As the chart below shows... oil price volatility is at its lowest in 21 years. We can't help but be reminded of Taleb's priceless phrase that "there is no freedom without noise - and no stability without volatility."

Yes, the Nasdaq witnessed its worst loss in three years; the S&P 500 fell two percent; but the world did not come to an end, and Wall Street brokers were not seen jumping out of high-storied windows. The selling has continued into today, but isn’t this drop expected if the Fed is really going to withdraw stimulus by tapering its bond purchases?

A downward adjustment has been expected for some time. Stocks did have a great year in 2013, if a 35% general across-the-board increase in valuations can be termed great. We sometimes forget that profit taking is basic to any market, and healthy at that – it allows new buyers to come into the fray and permits the winners to put a few bucks in the bank. During that same period, the Dollar had strengthened until the Fed became wary of what the future might bring. As the following chart reveals, the USD index plummeted, losing some 6.5% of its value from its peak, as 2013 drew to a close.
