Insider buying almost tripled last week with insiders buying $140.28 million of stock compared to $57.81 million in the week prior. Selling on the other hand declined with insiders selling $355.34 million of stock last week compared to $870.92 million in the week prior.
A majority of the insider purchases this week were related to David Einhorn participating into a secondary offering by home builder Green Brick Partners (GRBK) to the tune of nearly $85 million. Mr. Einhorn, Greenlight Capital and various other related entities now hold 24.13 million shares of Green Brick Partners. Insider selling was muted, as expected, on account of the start of earnings season.

In one sense, the week ahead should be a quiet, dull semi-vacation. As Nat King Cole explained, the Lazy-Hazy-Crazy days of summer - pretzels, beer, and bikinis that never got wet.
It is the lull before earnings and includes a light economic calendar. Will the A-Team need to return from the beach because of Greece? Or will it be a quiet week, disturbed only by an avalanche of FedSpeak and consequent punditry?

The AUD/JPY Seems To Provide A Good 1:3 Risk-Reward Ratio
The Japanese Yen has taken quite a tumbling recently. See USD/JPY chart below. The necessity of quantitative easing in attempting to meet inflation targets, coupled with concerns of low domestic growth, have taken their toll on the currency of late. As far as the Aussie dollar is concerned, the AUD has been struggling to gain traction against the U.S. dollar, while ranging against other currencies such as the euro. This was expected given that commodity prices have been lower, and exports to neighbouring economies such as China had fallen.
