You might be led to believe that the sheeple think the market is rigged or something.

Excellent, now do you have the same for bond mutual funds?  I heard they had an outflow as well.  Where is the money going?  Consumed? PMs? .....

Which will be worth more in a year, the black Friday shit you bought from selling out your funds or buying the market here.

Thank God we have ZH to tell us the news. MSM is so full shit and lies its hard to stay sane and make rational choices.

ETFs are still growing, but that doesn't come close to counter-acting the mutual fund withdrawals.

Ain't gonna happen dude! Like I've said, ad nauseum, no way TPTB are gonna let this fall. Trying to fight the Fed and CB's is a losing proposition. A year from now the SPX could be at new all-time highs.


Bears don't seem to understand how the game is played. hard to believe after 18 months of getting absolutely creamed. I wonder how many were carried out feet first today. I love how Da Boyz bait the shorts in by taking the market down for a few days in a row, making them think its gonna tank. And then they jam it up overnite and they're trapped like rats in the morning. Works every time, and yet they keep coming back for more  LOL

Bears don't understand the money market at all. They don't even understand what money is. If they did they would know who is the market maker, in a market denominated in the debt of the market maker!

I'm a bear, and I have done stellar on PM's for the past decade. *And* my money doesn't have counterparty risk - does yours?

Hey, I've done pretty well in PM's too.

And I could well be the biggest bear of all, just not in the 'counterparty risk' you're thinking of.

Don't know what makes you think that TPTB have the ability to keep this thing from falling.  You can't fight fundamentals.  Sure you can hyperinflate the currency to push up nominal stock values, but nothing will stop the markets from having their way in the end.

TPTB are bankrupt.  The USG is the most bankrupt nation in the history of the world.  Their intervention in the markets will fail when they fail, and this is inevitable.

I guess I do not find it particularly odd that supply and demand dynamics are unrelated to price. All of the markets are after all Goldman's private crooked casinos where they harvest money from suckers, idiots, widows and orphans.

I don't want to be all skeptical and everything here -- but does anyone think that maybe mutual funds are going the way of the dodo and people are just using ETFs more?

Just saying.

Equities crash?   They may be able to fit it in after WS bonuses are handed out and before American Idol starts.

Maybe equity outflows are good for economy (people using savings it to spend while in UE or in retirement and folks not funding their 401ks?) and good for the market as PD's happily hoover up the shares w/ free money from Fed via POMO's? 

Seems all wrong but seems a net present positive?  Would actually slow economy if folks were "investing"?  Better for economy if Fed just creates new money to replace the outflows?

Just trying to see it for what it is now...not making any value judgements about the fed taking future tax revenues, passing it to banks, so they can buy inflated assets that will only require another bailout if / when gravity reasserts itself.

From:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d0nERTFo-Sk


So forget about saving, get it straight out of your head
Like I said, in the long run—we’re all dead
Savings is destruction, that’s the paradox of thrift
Don’t keep money in your pocket, or that growth will never lift…


Business is driven by the animal spirits
The bull and the bear, and there’s reason to fear its
Effects on capital investment, income and growth
That’s why the state should fill the gap with stimulus both

(The arrival of the stimulus team):

Is there anybody in there?
Just nod if you can hear me.
Is there anyone at home?
Come on, now,
I hear you're feeling down.
Well I can ease your pain
Get you on your feet again.
I'll need some information first.
Just the basic facts
Can you show me where it hurts?

(The application of the stimulus):

There is no pain you are receding
A distant ship, smoke on the horizon.
You are only coming through in waves.
Your lips move but I can't hear what you're saying.
When I was a child I had a fever
My hands felt just like two balloons.
Now I've got that feeling once again
I can't explain you would not understand
This is not how I am.
I have become comfortably numb.


How can we get back to reality?

Smash the Wall!

It is not Outside.

Bob Chapman:

Airport officials at Denver International airport were on high alert yesterday when a full body scanner operator was caught masturbating in his booth as a team of High School netball players went through the scanner.

"The young ladies were going through the scanner one by one, and every time one went through, this guys face was getting redder and redder. His hand was moving and then he started sweating. He was then seen doing his 'O' face. That's when the security dragged him out of his booth and cuffed him. He had his pants round his ankles and everybody was really disgusted," Jeb Rather, a passenger on a flight to New York told CBS news.

Does anyone at the Fed or SEC want to concern themselves with the kind of leverage needed to offset these unparalled outflows or are we pretty resigned to the fact that the reckless actions that caused 2008 now magnified in order to pretend we are mildly recovering?

  This is sickening. So now we have a stock market that can never allow any actual selling on volume by the PD's, interest rate hike or Federal non-intervention in order for financial markets to keep a heartbeat? How do you think this will all end?

 I defer to Harry..You to tell me. Since we are now a country reliant upon our reserve currency to print gaps and do not produce anything anyone purchases how can this not lead to more of the same until we all end up in a "Walking Dead" mode.

What a bunch of idiots ! Fortunately for them, they still have lots of time to get in on the bull move in stocks. SPX 1250 easily by year end, maybe ever 1300.

is it possible that the outflows are merely people moving into stocks or commodities or etfs to get out of mutual funds. I have done this myself.

the market doesn't need real money anymore.

I'm sure people are still in denial/shock while pulling out their IRA/401K for lving expenses.  Nothin happens until they run their IRA/401k completely out and have no checks in the checkbook, and have tapped credit cards(check), and have pulled out all equity out of their home(check).


The market mirage is only good for maintaining order and some sort of wealth confidence.   However, the market will be sacrificed at any time when the govt needs to raise more money to feed their habit and fill their troughs.  The only thing holding that off is much of the rest of the world will be in trouble quicker, triggering a flight to quality(its all relative).

domestic equity funds - OUTFLOW...must be a bigger inflow making up for this from "somewhere" as net-net the market is going up w/ the same or more shares outstanding?

So, it's just stoooopid America that's too broke to take part in this momentous rally...too busy off trying to pay bills and eat food n stuff.

Who knows??

Bond fund holders are now getting killed.

Only a matter of time before they get frustrated seeing bonds go down and stocks go up each week.

Then the fund flows will probably reverse.
