My guess, the market is down today because finreg is still being debated and it will continue to be down until it is gutted. Then, almost magically, when the bill is passed and signed into law, the market will be back up as the MSM takes the collective eye off of reality and puts it back on unicorns and faeries.

*disclaimer* I am not invested and this is not sound financial advice.

PPT to save the day! Another day and they staved of the econ-terrorist, Goldman Sachs. Will the stockmarket periliously plunge to the depths of damnation? Will the US market lose it's glitter in young trader's eyes? Will librarian Nell who invested all her life savings in mutualfunds ever get to retire? Tune in tomorrow for another episode of: "Only the shadow government knows!!"

As it is spoken, let it be true.

Karma demands we re-visit 666, but that would be too good to be true. I'm loaded for bear and up to my neck in shorts. The trend has changed. The only question is when does this down trend end?

You are so right. Goldman speaks and so it shall manifest.

I read it as "if we can't save 1040 we'll drive it to 865" and they'll make another 100 million either way, everyday.

Somewhere around S & P 500, Dow 5,000, Gold 5,000 is my guess.

We'll see Johnny. I hope my guess is wrong, but I've been guessing pretty accurately since 2007.

I guess this means that PPT will be busy during the next couple days.

Couple  days???  Try couple of hours. PPT action begins at 3:15pm today to be exact.

Could be 'breaking news' on something that then is used as a fake way to prop this dog of a market. Remember how many times this happened in 2008. SSDD.

I was bearish before I read this but given Goldman's record lately, I'm wondering if I shouldn't be long...

I'm not naturally contrarian, but coming from Goldman, that's got to be a signal to buy.

Maybe QE - the sequel <voiceover>Bigger, badder, tougher than before</voiceover> is closer than we think.

Actually, I'd expect the S&P to drop through 1040 just to suck in a bunch of new shorts that GS will gladly fill. Then a big FuckYou rally back up to 1080.

Oh yeah, this is a total short-squeeze set up at the neckline.  Over on Ritholz's blog, there's talk of the bouncey effect of failed Head-And-Shoulders.  Straight to the moon if supports holds.  The neckline on the Chart at 2150 and Nazzy there holds.  GS coming out with its report is pure scamming to suck in shorts for fuel.  Sorry, no deal.

It's impossible to play this market short or long.

Rigged rigged rigged.  And some wonder why consumer confidence is down.  Howz about cuz no one trusts markets, currencies, governments or corporations anymore.

Could be wise to be ready to play it long till November, after that it's "Katie bar the door" as those wacky oldtimers used to say.

Hmm.. where did I see this before.. ^GSPC hits around the 1040 range.. and magically jumps up in very short time periods during off hours due to a firm or two buying up what they can to make the market look better than it is.

Oh yea.. that happened a few weeks ago. JP Morgan if I'm not mistaken.

They speak of the market as if it is something powerful and beyond their control. Puhleeze! The squid sets the market, the squid is the market. All this, oh gee, we don't know what ever is going to happen! Claptrap is amusing.

If Goldman says so, then it shall be. Theyve got to create some mass panic for announced $5 trillion printfest.

We have to make it through 975 first. That markes bear market territory. You can bet it will be all hands on deck there. I think they may hold it for a little bit but it will fall through as the data continues to deteriorate.

Has anyone heard anything out of Louise Yamada lately? I'd be very curious to hear what she makes of the recent S&P moves.

Rosie talked about her a couple of weeks back, some NY conference.

She's been on Bloomberg and stands on her SPX 600 and maybe later 400, no time frame as a good technician would.

Just wait until the 50-DMA crosses below the 200-DMA, which is very close to happening.  It has already occurred in the last week in several global markets (e.g. FTSE).

About an hour ago on CNBS, Matt Nesto said, when discussing the 50-day/200-day crossover: "Mother of God. Look out below".

Yup!  In the laws of physics, it is the only thing that can tank faster and farther than ObamaRama's approval rating.

Why would anyone trade based on TA now is beyond me. It's like playing Texas Hold'em in Vegas with the cards in front of you facing up. Stupid.
