Gold supply and demand data published by all primary consultancy firms is incomplete and misleading. The data falsely presents gold to be more of a commodity than a currency.
Gold has picked up that something MAJOR is afoot. It's exploding higher against EVERY major currency.

i'm sure the calls are already into the media to make sure that this is a one day story.

What are you talking about?
if bank of america is cratering and there are no buyers, does it fall?
good question in this market....
take a look.
So if BAC is my mortgage lender and they fail, does that mean I no longer have to pay my mortgage? *sigh* I really need to get out from under those criminals.
Screw waiting, you don't even have to pay your mortgage now!
Think of it has hush "discretionary spending" money. Everybody's doing it.
ONLY CHUMPS PAY THEIR BILLS
*****stares at the float*****
lol, exactly! You gave them plenty of bailout money already, albeit unwillingly. They have enough from you as it is; just tell them to suck it.
Not as easy when the federal government is a shareholder...
FNMA has been buying all of the mortgages they can. They have bought virtually all loans closed in the past two years.
I trade BAC on a daily basis, against the computers, i know....
but today, the unloading is truly stunning, massive sells going on
did something happen or come out that i missed?
My home loan was purchased by fannie and is serviced by BAC!
True, true; so then technically THEY owe me! Right? LOL!
Well, of course. They don't exist without your business and/or bailout money. However, as MachoMan pointed out above, it will be difficult to get them to see it that way...
Offhand, my guess is that your note/mortgage have been offloaded to third parties (probably plural) and BAC is still your servicer... if so, another servicer will be appointed and you'll likely get to keep paying.
However, practically speaking, if the invalid assignments (ibanez) trail back to BAC, then through the ensuing chaos of BAC's failure, your little case might get lost in the plot. If you were to say, contest the new servicer's ability to collect your note payments, then it may just be that the real party in interest can't be found (since it won't exist)... In short, there would have to be a determination amonst all the assignees as to who owns the shit after putbacks ensue...
My guess is that a bankruptcy trustee will be more than happy to keep collecting your payments... and, when BAC is sold via firesale to a principal actor in the fraud and/or the federal government (not sure that isn't redundant), then they'll come pounding on your door for the payments... However, that is not to say that you cannot work out an arrangement with them for a significant reduction in principal for the trouble they caused you :)
The debt remains long after the car (or house in this case) is forgotten.
The main question in my mind on this subject is who would be able to afford to buy B of A and all of their toxic crap? I suppose it would just be split up into a million little pieces and sold off like you said. The price would probably have to be pennies on the dollar though. Much pain and confusion ahead.
This is the last act of the play, where the spoils from the wealth gap get converted to real assets and/or are directly convertible to real assets... obviously they have balanced portfolios of real wealth, but this is the last act...
I have no intention of defaulting. I was just making an off-handed joke. Although I certainly wouldn't mind NOT having a mortgage payment.
The only relevant seven words:
"We conclude this financial crisis was avoidable."
"We conclude this financial crisis was avoidable."
Probably had to do with snow...
Maybe it has something to do with the fact that all four top "staff" are jewish?
Edelberg, Cohen, Seefer and Feldberg.......???
Monkey threw 4 darts to head up the "Investigation" and all four turned out to be Jewish?
Come come! Dead give-away right there.
Lots of valid reasons to be critical of the report, Jewish sounding names is not a one of them. Is that the extent of your intellectual abilities?
And the most relevant words missing:
"we conclude the next financial crisis is unavoidable"
That is implicit in the report.
I don't have to read it. Nobody at the tbtf are going to jail. zirp 4evah. bailouts when needed. Bonuses to continue. That is all.
i already read it in "The Panic of 1819" by Murray Rothbard
and they explained it all in only about 555 pages? They must have had the best minds in the world working on that one!
It's called Brevity down.
Which of course is the soul of wit.
To Whit, this is a witty report.
A malter witty report as it were.
Pocketa pocketa ta pocketa...
wit indeed. they didn't hold back on that at all. The best way to reinforce a lie: form a commission.
Hard to make out the small words in the cloud on a blackberry but I don't see the word "fraud" at all. That pretty much sumd up the value of the report for me.
Where is, "Piece of sh*t collateralized mortgages"?
This report is as relevant today as a detailed study of the South Sea Bubble of 1720.
Did Angelo Mozilo pen this report?
Not unless they're installing word processors in the tanning beds these days...

The government calls the protests "illegal". I don't think the deomonstrators are too concerned with following the governments rules at this point.

So remember, the next time you wish avoid going to trial after being accused of stealing FIFTY BILLION in a ponzi scheme here or over there, just state for the courts psychological representative how you're "feeling a little blue" and "down in the dumps" and how being depressed requires access to prescription medication prescribed to you in such high doses you become not fit to stand trail (anywhere) and get moved to a nice medical facility. Nice plea bargaining if you can get it!
Most likely you won't get that choice of plea option, but maybe it is just another way for the STreet(s) to hide incompetent feeder-funding counter-parties who are still stuck holding the invisible bag of loan losses that likely will never see the "unsealed" light of day.
I saw the picture of the beating he got in prison. Beat the living shit out of that guy.
One can only hope the bigger ponzi schemers on Wall Street get the same.

... black is white, white is black.
Well to be fair, the huge majority of our spending got cuked into wallstreet blackhole of profits for a global investor class and CEO bonuses. So it was almost like Austerity!
