Monty, I have made & lost money on Puts, with a small net loss, at a time when the Builders have continued to rise. But it hardly registered in my portfolio of mainly mining stocks. I see the Property sector as a dangerous one, that can (and will?) tank the US economy. I reckon the time is ripe for a BIGGER BET I you are not clever enough to see the risks, and find intelligent approaches to managing them- then, I suggest you, STAY AWAY from the sector

Is There A Debt Bomb? Dan Ackman, 09.21.04, 10:20 AM ET NEW YORK - That the Federal Reserve is poised for another quarter point interest rate hike should not obscure the fact that we are now living through the lowest real interest rate period in a generation. Since 2000, when the Fed started cutting rates, the conventional mortgage rate has fallen to 5.87% from 8.06%. The real mortgage rate (the interest rate on mortgages minus the current inflation rate) is now at 3.22%. This rate is as low as it has been since 1980. . . . That interest rates are lower has not led to consumers reducing their debt burden. In fact, that burden has stayed about the same since 2000, according to Federal Reserve data. This is the typical pattern in the U.S. When interest rates fall, as they have been, Americans respond by increasing their borrowing. For instance, between 1985 and 1995, interest rates fell dramatically, but debt service remained on average between 16% and 17% of incomes. Since 2000, the debt service ratio has snaked to above 18%, and there has been a rise in the number of bankruptcies. Additional borrowing, particularly in the form of mortgage and home equity debt, has fuelled a surge in residential construction and household consumption. ...MORE: http://www.forbes.com/services/2004/09/21/cx_da_0921topnews.html?boxes=custom

This "LAST RALLY" (?), - Looks like a 5 wave structure since Aug.2004 (not yet complete?) - Is coming on much less volume than the previous Wave (see CTX.mt chart)
