Things will break.
Let's see what's on the table:
tax cuts for the rich ..... check
'free' repatriation of offshore capital ...... check
benefits cuts for the masses ....... check
less regulation on what we do ...... check
So.. all we need is a little nudge ...... break the thing then!!

Time for the plebes to ensure they are fully armed.
Dollar down, stocks down . . . again.
where is Robotroll?
Furiously hunting for a chart of some shitty company that went up despite everything else being down. His disappearance will be cheered by many.
Whoever junked that is crazed.
Hate to point this out but GS is up on the day.
Robo got smart and is now digging silver out of the ground for $5
Hes on junk patrol
Robo's formula failed him today. It will take him a few 24/7's to come up with a new formula...
So... Europe is falling apart although it has been postponed a few days (at least a weekend), Trichet can only raise rates if he wants to kill Spain with its variable mortgages, US is stopping QE and EURUSD rallies... WHATEVER
my point exactly ....
feel the power of the squid!!
But GM is buying stock off the US government; surely that means things are great.
No, EURUSD is going down starting monday. Back to 1.20.
Sure it will after it hits onefiddy
There are barrier, digital, options @ 1.50. That bad boy is going to take the 1.55 area.
The ECB and REAL money will start covering as exports soften going into Fall ( Northern Hemisphere).
Is it a measure of prospective Euro weakness or strength that ECB executive committee member and likely Trichet successor Lorenzo Bini Smaghi writes in FT to the effect that because higher prices for formerly volatile food and energy prices are no longer volatile but here to stay, that is, no longer transitory, “core inflation is no longer a very useful indicator for monetary policy, and should probably be abandoned.” Link here (I hope): http://www.ft.com/intl/cms/s/0/d8b5ee4c-8c81-11e0-883f-00144feab49a.html...
"Elsewhere, the short covering spree in the USD continues but not for long: look for the most recent net long exposure of 4,787 to promptly flip and go negative once again as more and more begin anticipating another Monetary Easing episode."
So very true. There is going to be a real test for Zimbabwe Ben. All have assumed QE3 is out of the question -- but now his reputation is on the line, and if things start to go to sh-t, will he REALLY stick to his guns? Or will he give in a pull out the synringe of morphine for a third shot of JoyJuice for Wall Street? I used to think QE3 was out of the question......but, we'll see, won't we?
Well. It's either that or all the money vanishes in a puff of credit/debt anhiliation. The question is when.
A year ago, I thought there might be another couple of years in it. 2013 or so peak in the markets but looks to me like it's all gonig pear shaped now.
Yes indeed -- pear shaped, just like a fat banker's waist line.
You know .... dual mandate .... unemployment going up .... QE3 could happen no problem....
still ... they do need to raise rates at this point ....
however, the wild card remains the consumers .... more so than Rating Agencies, Speculators, and Bond investors ...
Cash is King! King Rahrah!!!!
I'm just ignorant but curious - do people exist that make money in the foreign exchange markets? Like betting $100000 at 100 to 1 leverage and get rich/get shafted when the EURUSD moves by 1 cent? Sounds like a friggin' casino operation to me.
Leverage is irrelevant when you apply correct money management tools. What difference does is make if im levereged 50:1, 100:1 or 400:1 if my overall risk per trade doesnt exceed a few percent??? Being the most liquid market in the world (spot not futures) it also provides added protection for positions of most sizes. While it resembles a casino op, alongside most zero sum activities, in this game card counting isnt frowned upon ;)
Once you work out your risk management and figure out what sort of things are driving the market it's not so bad. I make on avg about +3.5% per week increase on my account balance. The hard part isn't the trading but wrestling with your head - it'll try to trip you up and play all sorts of games with you. My first live account though I tripled it in 3 weeks and then blew 90% of it on just 2 trades - if you don't manage your risk and your head you can get shafted very quickly.
Spanish TV is all hopey changey over the banksters' minions who "won" (by default) the recent elections. No coverage whatsoever of the people in
Puerta del Sol. It's like a whole country muzzled and held hostage. WTF
blythe is driving me craaaazeee! i know, what else is new? i thought she might be outa the silver business. all her customers' silver was getting delivered. and then some. so, she moved the silver into registered, as per the delivery notices. jpmorgue silver inventory. see? DJ Comex Gold And Silver Warehouse Stocks-Jun 2

“Just think of the difference on the attitude of the people now about the Federal Reserve,” Paul said, noting that Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke took the unprecedented step April 27 of holding a news conference to defend his policies. “It’s a failed system, and people are starting to realize this.
Gold up, dollar down, stocks down for past week- are we entering a new world ?I think Gold is due for a pump and dump just like silver went thru. Disclosure : long physical Gold for many years.
How does 1.55 eur/usd and 76 usd/jpy sound? Assuming a continued soft dollar policy.
Ref; QE status quo.
Tyler will again be wrong with his 1.50 breakout call as like when he called 1:1 at 1.20 bottom last year.
Tyler you always get it wrong dude, EURUSD is a wide ranging market, it is not trending like commodities and equity indices and it has nothing to do with the COT and sentiment stats. all it is related to is the medium term cycle structure.. we are now flirting with the top of the range and odds are pretty high that 1.4940 was the medium term top.
aside from breaking out 1.50, it would not even see 1.48 again for long months..
good luck to you dude
Lets see, stocks down, bonds up, toilet paper down euro surge. Silver and gold up. So the famous risk on-risk off trade has changed character or we need to coin a new word for this new phenomenon? Euro and PM are now correlated to Bonds but not stocks? Is this risk-on or risk off? Or some bastard child?
What do you readers think about the correlation breakdown this week in silver (xag) vs gold (xau)?
Hi all, I'm new here. and thanks ZH for giving me access.
I'm from Europe and to be honest, it isn't that bad over here as some think. I expect EUR/JPY to make a surge to the upside soon together with all other EUR crosses.
