Initiated a TED spread position before the stock market crash of 1987. A TED spread is the simultaneous entry into a Eurodollar and Treasury Bill futures position. Profit is made from a widening or narrowing of the price spread. In October of 1987, Mr. Mosquera opined that a widening spread (purchase of Treasury Bill and sale of Eurodollar futures) was at hand. This correct prediction netted a multi-hundred percent profit (relative to margin) in less than one month.

Predicted a stock market drop of noticeable proportions early in the summer of 1998. He advised co-workers to exit 401(k) investments that were exposed to diversified stock funds and direct them instead to interest only accounts. The stock market fell more than 20%. He advised reentry later that fall.
