...And Green

Tyler Durden's picture





 

In the meantime, for those who remember what happened to Romania in 1989, get ready to for a Bucharest rerun in Cairo. CL is very cheap here as the march to the presidential palace begins.

That was a suspiciously volatile last 15 minute candle . Violent desire to close green it would appear .

Amazing how they propped it up today.

Even when 550 million CSCO lotto balls were thrown out the window today...

LOL....

Ellen Page needs to submit her resignation to "Here's Johnny" Chambers, promptly use her severance pay to get a boob job, then apply to star in an ad campaign for Whole Foods Market.

Pretty good comparison there, only no austerity in Egypt.  That's right, things are so bad that even without government cramping down spending, we still get riots.

This closing green shit is just absurd.  I made everyone in my office aware of my *cough* prediction of a positive close and they were all a bit amazed at the behavior the last 15 minutes. 

I really don't want to play anymore when it's this controlled.  If I go back to school does anyone know of any Mountain Man programs?  I'm feeling an itch to leave our corrupt society to feed on itself while I escape to nature.

there is a shortage of experienced mining exploration personnel.  Nintendo generation has made many of the new entrants soft.  Work involves the application of the applied sciences.  geology, math as it relates to geography and the less accurate cousin of geodetic surveying, some biology to amuse your self and forestry., There is lots of camping in the bush with the bears, rain or shine and at this time of the year SNOW.

If you head to Alaska or The Yukon you can hang with the roots and berries crowd.  Its a bit of a fantasy world they live in.  To be a real mountain man, it is pure on the job training.

- Goes as predicted.. Unfortunately my guess is that Mubarak won't survive this week.

- Next phase: in come the US military forces. "The situation in brotherly Czechoslovakia.. erm... Egypt is now 'normalized'".

- Obama gave a speech in Israel before his inauguration where he stated that he will protect the interests of Israel no matter what it takes. He even repeated that sentence..

Read the article. He seems to be complaining that the stock dropped $10 or 3% in a few minutes. This for a stock that has gone up by what % over the last few months. The point I'm trying to make is that it seems everyone has completely forgotten what it is like to have the stock market actually go down...

Way back when CSCO's primary growth plan was to move into supplying wireline carriers with new switching equipment and capture that huge market.  That market is in steady decline and developing econs are jumping right to wireless.  They missed the shift.  They are a plumbing supply company now.

It's not a market.  A market has 2 sides.  Instead of doing the QE bs why didn't he just tell the exchange to reset the prices for every company 40% higher and let the market take care of itself.  When this goes bad for Benny whose pays the money back that was shoveled into the market?  Now I know what a Viagra iv drip is like.  Word is that the exchanges are no longer going to offer the VIX index as it's no longer relevant.

Similar to Bucharest for sure, but now the communication is open and the state police identified. In Romania most of us were against Ceausescu, but 10% who were part of the communist party or the state police. It was impossible to identify the traitors.

Mubarak looks like he doesn't want to die in his bad. If he gets killed, Middle East will blow-up. However, I see Mubarak as a coward, and I think he's playing shell game with the people, while he's securing some of his fortune outside the country. I also think that this kind of attitude is part of their culture.

The fact that the opposition doesn't have recognizable faces make it even tougher for the people to easily win this. Again, it's probably part of their culture not to openly support their leaders.

Kraft Foods Inc. reported a 24% drop in quarterly net income late Thursday as the world’s No. 2 food company grapples with input cost inflation and weak consumer spending.....

“We expect the operating environment to remain challenging, with significant input cost inflation and persistent consumer weakness in many markets,” Kraft Chief Executive Irene Rosenfeld said in a statement.

It's as though the market rises in a cloud of hopium, while individual stocks get reacquainted with reality...
