I don't care how high the FED pushes this pile of dung up... you've got more chance of seeing a pork sausage in every one of the Bernank's orifices than me buying any slice of these crooked markets.

Gold and silver for me, they are the truth in a sea of lies.

I agree, I'm one of the stupid stupid stupid idiots that got "all out" of the market in 2008 just off the bottom. There is no way I am getting back in to what is unquestionably the largest criminal enterprise in the history of the world. I don't care how many "Profits" I miss.

From here to the puff of butterfly/swan generated wind that blows down this Ponzi house of cards, it is land, PM's, and as few sidelined FRN's as I can get by with.

Hopefully something cracks soon since my Father in Law investment broker has my wife almost convinced that I am some kind of libertarian lunatic, and can't believe I made her reallocate everything out of equities and this "Marvelous, 'can't lose' stock market" 

Not that I wish for the collapse of the US economy just to prove my FIL wrong, but you haven't met the guy, so I kind of do.

TJ - If your FIL was born in the USA, and is still working, then he is of a generation that seen nary a day of true economic suffering. What the fuck does the marginal buck he is pumping get you anyways? A vacation or two? A used Boxster?

Your principal is protected to the extent possible, and that matters to people who will live into the next decades.

You're the one who is risk averse or risk neutral, the only two appropriate postures for those of us without trust funds.

The best part is, thats my birthday. What a present!

And I am happy to see bankers doing so well for themselves, they deserve it!


NEW YORK (Reuters) - New York City's bank tax collections ran 48 percent above a year-ago, one of several taxes whose encouraging performance might give Mayor Michael Bloomberg some extra cash to spend in next year's budget.

"Bankers have done alright; that has been a pleasant surprise," said a source familiar with the data, one day before the mayor unveils his new budget plan.

New York City's economy rests on the shoulders of the financial industry and the rise in this tax bodes well for the banking industry. The source, whose back of the envelope calculations suggest the city might have an extra $150 million of revenue from several taxes, requested anonymity.

Bloomberg, who warns he might have to lay off thousands of workers because the state is slashing its aid by about $2 billion, raised his forecast for the bank tax in November. Even with the 48 percent increase, revenue is about $20 million below Bloomberg's forecast, the source said.

Fiscal monitors give Bloomberg high marks for repeatedly slashing spending to close a string of multibillion deficits. They fault him for negotiating overly generous pay packages with city workers.

Though the city is one of the nation's biggest issuers of municipal bonds and its approximately $65 billion budget tops that of a number of states, New York City pays lower interest rates on its debt than fiscally-stressed states, such as Illinois, California and New Jersey.

The mayor has recently taken a much harder line, demanding teachers relinquish benefits of seniority and police officers give up a $12,000 yearly payment for retirees that he calls a "Christmas bonus."

While the securities industry was exceptionally profitable in 2010, with the state comptroller saying it could be the second most profitable year on record, the city has yet to reap a bonanza in income tax payments from high-flying bankers and brokers.

"The income tax is only up about 2.5 percent," said the source..

June 27, 2011.

This day is so important I propose we name it in advance.

My first recommendation is Birinyi Ruler Day but that's only because I think we need more rules in general.

Anyone else?

Fireworks are a big part of our Independance celebration. And $4/gal would probably create some fireworks.

Must be that a dollar is worth more in Texas than it is in London?

Okay, just a tiny bit off topic, (but it's all related isn't it?)  This quote from Hillary today is just priceless; damn priceless:

In response to protests in the Middle East...

Hillary Clinton calls the swelling outbreak of protests as an "historic moment" in a speech today in Washington DC:

"Across the Middle East today we see people calling on governments to be more open, more accountable, more responsive. People want a stronger voice in their own affairs. It is in the interests of governments to answer these demands, to reflect the will of their own people."

On cnbc they are even saying thsat traders feel QE is at the basis of this equity elevation, how to play the inflation issue to your benefit and questioning a dow that goes up 9-62 points per day. Maria Bartiromo looks pale and flush. She needs some news to report...instead of the same old daily line. She liked the action when the VIX was high.

Stocks will go straight down until April, and gold / silver will go straight up until that time.  The reason lies in the euro.

A look at some charts shows that the USD has lost about 20% since early '09.

The stock markets are up 100% since early '09.

It wouldn't surprise me at all if the USD lost another 20% over the next couple years.

So, why can't the stock market double again?

You are going to reach a point where producers cant pass on price increases to consumers without some wage inflation, which isnt going to happen with unemployment at 9%.

Every monetary policy decision has positive and negative consequences. Market doesnt care about QE negatives and USD dollar weakening now, but they will eventually.

Because within two years the US Dollar will no longer be the global reserve currency.  The scheme ends when an alternative reserve currency is presented to a starved, inflationary, angry world and it is welcomed with open arms and roses.  Either that or we have a great big ole' war.  Take your pick and you might even get both if some of these fucks get really pissed.

when the bears are bullish...kinda worrying

estimates in 2002 forecasters had 30,000 for the Dow in 2008...

All you got now are HFT on thin liquidity supporting stocks and wall street throwing in billion + long position's.

even if the crazies at the Fed go all QE3, China will sell another chunk of UST (they have been selling steadily start yr). 

Equation: China tea price doubles in less then two wks, middle yr = China will go nuclear and force USD bid = UST sell off, yields will go ballistic.

We are heading towards doomsday trades, 3-6mths

I have a simple tool I use for dealing with the counterfeiting. Every time they announce more counterfeiting programs, I put the dollar with PM purchases. I am at the 35% level and poised for 50% when QE subsidize broke dick states hits in June. See the Illinois bailout today? Sweet.

Just do what the Chinese do. They are my new ally.

Anybody notice, that we JUST entered into multiplier expansion, on a monthly data series of trailing operating earnings?

It's absolutely stupid, but this bull, is JUST getting started, if the history of greed and stupidity is any guide.

I site Q2-1996 to Q3-1998, earnings were basically flat but the trailing PE ran from 17x to 23x.

If we see the next two quarters of earnings estimates coming true, birinyi and goldman will be saying "I told you so", as 1600 on the S&P 500 will be in the rear view mirror.
