One day the explanation won't be overinventory but "lack of credibility in the USD".

Jim Cramer gave a 15 minute speech on this when it gapped up to $29.00 plus.  Who buys gap ups?  I sell them if I have it.

This is just too funny. Wonder if he will talk about it later.    $13.77 now, and it will go lower.

superconductors aren't death stocks. They are quite valuable and will also keep rising in price.

Once the Chinese realize they can sell them to another party, they'll make a nice profit on it.

Below 12$, it's a buy.

Not that I'm buying them, 95% of my assets are in PM's :)

But if you like the dogtrack, you can make money on this one to.

they did this with the Brazilian soy bean imports a few years back - bankrupted some exporters, IIRC. The government found problems with the shipments, held them at the border, and sent them back.


At least now they dispense with the formalities. We ain't taking it! Whachou goin' do 'bout it?

China is about to crash. I will just love rubbing it into the america haters on this site who seem to think china and the yuan are inevitably going to dominate the united states.

" I will just love rubbing it into the america haters on this site who seem to think china and the yuan are inevitably going to dominate the united states."

And if you think that all "america haters' believe this then you're a stupid fuck.

Being the myopic fuck that you are you'd label me an "america hater."  I am, after all, anti-empire: but mindless robots aren't programmed to understand the differences.  I have NEVER championed China; I have always pointed out that China is running headlong into a collapse, and this will likewise collapse the US.

Take youre broad brush and shove it up your ass.

Please note that I speak harshly just to get your attention.  If you don't get it then too fucking bad, it means that you really are a dumb fuck...

they did pretty good in 2008 although interestingly it involved not devaluing their currency thus causing an immediate flight to the USD and the annihilation of Europe.  I'm unclear if "that was the plan" even now.  Anywho...with nukers blowing up i imagine "they had to do something to stop this rampaging American beast-man of alternative energy."

Mish and Pettis have been all over China's current implosion.

China will not take over the world!   They always mess up when they are on the verge of greatness.  Communist Dynasty will be the same aas the others...

Everything BIG will fail.  The reason BIG will fail more spectacularly is because its increases in consumption are much bigger.  China's collpase was easy to spot, that double-digit growth was going to burn itself out in short order: anyone/any system doing the same would meet the same consequences.

I'd argue that they "are on the verge of greatness."  People confuse greatness with the speed at which a society is rushing toward the abyss.  "Spectacular," perhaps, but "greatness" isn't a word that I'd think is meaningful in this context.

But, perhaps it's the other way round, perhaps GE will find some way of getting the politicians to help do their bidding?  That's how Boeing gets its airplanes sold: via international "diplomacy."
