Market Chess Prices Are Going Up

Effective January 1st, 2023, prices for Market Chess Subscription Services are going up across the board.  This will actually be the first rate increase since the service started.  In the eight years (to the date!) since I launched Market Chess, I have held off on raising prices. However, with all of my vendors (video capture, filming,...

Yes, the Bond Market Can Crash

    This is worth a re-post, especially in light of the summer rally in both stocks and Treasuries.   I am re-posting this not to "pile on" to the recent weakness in TLT (as rates go back up) but rather to reinforce my view that a bond market crash/swoon/substantial move lower from here as rates go higher is absolutely on the table if rates...

A Possible "Home Run" Trade Idea

  Back on December 27th, 2021, I sent out the following video in an email to VIP Members inside Market Chess Subscription Services. In the VIP service, we focus on long-term investing plays and strategies, as well as the occasional special situation like the one I outlined below for Treasuries.    At the time of this video, TLT was trading at...

COMING SOON: My Book About Sports Betting

I am pleased to announce that I am in the final stages of finishing up a side project that I have been working on for quite some time.  As you know, sports betting has taken off across the country with a domino-like effect of various state legalizations. The reality is that the ubiquity of sports wagering will only become more prominent in the...

I cannot, in good faith, recommend that you watch Showtime's television series, "Dexter," which ran from 2006 through a downright awful final season into 2013. In fact, the final season was so bad that Showtime recently announced a revival of sorts, with a ten-episode limited return, to essentially try and wipe the bitter taste of one of the...

The post-Civil War period in American history, pretty much taking us through the end of the 19th century, tends to be one of the more overlooked portions in the story of our republic. However, over the last five years or so I have becoming increasingly interested in it, namely due to the all-time great television series, "Hell on Wheels." In...

Currently available on Netflix, "The Last Dance" documentary about NBA's Chicago Bulls dynasty in the 1990s is well worth a viewing. Even if you are not a sports/NBA/basketball fan, the story of Michael Jordan and his rise to legendary status not just in basketball but in all of professional sports (and, indeed, in all things business and of a...

Following in tradition for this website on Father's Day Weekend, the great father/son tale told in Road to Perdition (2002) is worth a viewing (or a repeat viewing). My own father died in 2002, not long before this film was released. He took great care of himself, especially as he reached middle age, but an aggressive form of brain cancer...

I recently re-watched Mel Gibson’s Apocalypto (2006). Gibson is behind the camera on this one, as writer and director of an excellent, underrated historical action and adventure film with a no-name but phenomenal cast. The film is currently available for streaming on Amazon Prime. It is well worth your time for an exciting, intense, and...

Memorial Day Weekend at Market Chess Cinemas

First and foremost, I have high expectations for HISTORY channel's three-night miniseries event, “Grant,” which will premiere over three consecutive nights beginning on Monday, May 25th at 9PM ET/PT--See the preview, below. The television event will chronicle the life of one of the most complex and underappreciated generals and presidents in...

Happy Mother's Day weekend. In light of the special day tomorrow, here is a relevant and worthwhile film.  As you might imagine, I am leaning towards the classic cinema of Hollywood yesteryear, with a heavy dose of film noir to keep things interesting.  Mildred Pierce (1945) fits the bill, with Joan Crawford winning the Oscar for Best...

Market Chess Cinemas: Quarantine Edition

I raved on Twitter about "Mankind: The Story of All of Us," a 2012 miniseries with twelve episodes. So, I might as well make it official and give this production its due. Available on Amazon Prime, the miniseries originally appeared on History channel. Josh Brolin's narration captures the spellbinding nature of tracing human's history form the...

Market Chess Cinemas: Quarantine Edition

With the overwhelming majority of us holed up in quarantine it can become mentally and emotionally draining, particularly as we navigate a volatile market attempting to price in a set of circumstances which we have not seen to this degree in at least one hundred years.  During these times, amid horrifying headlines of more deaths across the...

The best film I saw last year was Richard Jewell (2019), Clint Eastwood's gripping, true-life story, based on the 1997 Vanity Fair article "American Nightmare: The Ballad of Richard Jewell" by Marie Brenner.  Terrific, and I mean terrific, performances by Paul Walter Hauser, Sam Rockwell, Kathy Bates, Jon Hamm, and Olivia Wilde magnify just...

Thanksgiving Night at Market Chess Cinemas

It has been a while since we have discussed recommended films and television series. Frankly, I am a tough critic when it comes to what I enjoy watching. Mind you, I am open to various genres and do not thumb my nose at comedy or any kind of fantasy. But it must be entertaining and not rely on tired formulas or regurgitated comic book...

Sunday Matinée at Market Chess Cinemas

Currently available on Amazon Prime here , Operation Finale (2018) is a very fine film which is certainly worthy of a viewing, regardless of your knowledge of the real-life events the film portrays. The acting is strong across the board, with well-known actors like Ben Kingsley still in top form, while lesser-known actors like Oscar Isaac...

Sunday Matinée at Market Chess Cinemas

Currently out in theaters, Quentin Tarantino's two-hour and forty-five minute look at real-life stars from 1969 Hollywood in Once Upon a Time In Hollywood (2019) makes for an interesting viewing.  Tarantino films largely risk coming off as too campy and contrived, but are also oftentimes entertaining--Clearly, some more than others. And the...

Saturday Night at Market Chess Cinemas

Currently available on Netflix, Platoon (1986) may not be a particularly upbeat film.  However, there is no denying it is Oliver Stone's masterpiece, with the award winning filmmaker flexing his true auteurship as the writer and director here, while a top shelf cast of Charlie Sheen, the menacing Tom Berenger (pictured above), and William...
