1. Yuck.  2. Interestingly related - Banks appear to be in the process of shitting the bed, regardless of today's retard rally.

Yep...no problem with collapsing bank shares.  Funny..."we're up" is the call on the BlowHorn, of course, with its very selective vision.

In the meantime, and for you day traders out there, check out just how over extended the abomination of an ETF the XRT is today.  Per usual, this means that criminal syndicate Wall Street bankers everywhere are selling the shit out of consumer discretionary stocks...which should commence a considerable reversal shortly.

'We're UP'...to DOW 12,100 which is about where the market has been avg over the last 7 months, yet people are impressed.

Guaranteed the consumer crap stocks Robo is so enamored with are getting the massive pump and dump right now, the criminals want out at the top. All CNBS is blathering about is $7 coffee and $8 burrito and $300 leotard stocks....just stupid.

The destruction of the market's integrity and credibility is a thing to behold as syndicate banker desperation rises for another algo rally, much to the apathy of real capital.

Today, the REITs are the chosen group to try to hold up the financial segment of the market, which only means it will be the last group to roll over on a market reversal...which should suggest that they are the right group to sell at the close.

Dog, I never thought I'd see this day, central planners, money printers, and fascist everywhere...and the impeding and obvious collapse of all confidence in these entities.  It is happening right now, with each tick, with each irrelevant story blathered about on the BlowHorn [CNBC], with each stupid hot momo idea suggested, algo'd, and dumped in a perpetual bullshit loop.

The entire picture now is entirely and irrevocably fucked.

No shit!  Already up $68 and headed to the Mooon! Alice!

Fundamentals?! Fundamentals?!  We don' need no stinkin' fundamentals!

Also, in bizarro world, the guy who released those numbers early is getting the rest of the year off and triple bonus.

Fundamentals don't matter for much anymore. Window dressing at it's best for the remainder of the week.

Where is the deer in headlights? How can this happen?

Not required.  This managed to just goose futures 5 pts.

The consumer isnt confident? Looks like its time to call in the tanks and helicopter gunships....the beatings will continue until morale improves above expectations.

Allow me to explain - it complicated.  It goes like this see, bullshit good news is good and truthful bad news is no news at all.  Keep those simple rules handy and everything will start to make sense.

Right.  We're all Keynsians when the numbers are good and we're no longer Keynesians when the numbers are bad.

How will Bloomjerk spin this?

"US Stocks Advance as lower than expected Consumer Confidence Data comes out early in Error"

SheepDog-One's picture

So sad about Bloomberg, a few years ago they were pretty damn good! Now its a race to full retard between them and CNBS.

scatterbrains's picture

Those were my thoughts too... listening to that retard with the bow tie   try to pump this bullshit makes me sick... caused me to go on to think that that poor soul that won the law suit against the fed probably died from the stress of his boss trying to stop him. I'd be curious to know if or what pressure bloomy put him under to not push the issue. I'd like to think he told them you can take this job and shove it up your ass, I don't need you!!  If he did, they certainly could never admit that that's for shit sure.

Im starting to shift toward your thinking about bbg tv...def good a few years back...however, if you stream it there are no commercials

blindfaith's picture

 don't leave out the muddickieroonie BS machine. 

Never forget a fortune can be made with tabloid toilet papers chasing cars, innocent sex, and half-truths into hard places and tapping phones.

We have learned a lot...imaginary numbers don't lie and people can be told anything and believe it if it comes from on high experts.

 

The Conference Board must have really bitten their collective nails to have the guts to print this.  When is the last time you saw bad numbers from this 'paid to play it again Sam' bunch?

Cuts to social security will improve consumer confidence. lolololololol

Double post, had some connection problems "503 service"

firstdivision's picture

Is there really a need for you to repeatedly post the same thing over and over in a thread?  It is rather annoying, and I can assure you no one appreciates you voicing your idiocy.

SheepDog-One's picture

Im sure it was just an accident...remember folks, just hit 'save' 1 time.

Paralympic Equity's picture

Sorry, I just edited all the repeated posts, It was due to some connection problems, just when I posted, then page refresh got it to repeat many times.

 

No need to call me an idiot.

Numbers released before there are scheduled to be ?

Oops, that was supposed to go to insiders only.

And the DOW spikes +100 in 60 seconds...just a damn clown show at this point.

scatterbrains's picture

The daily graveyard shift of the ppt spent so much effort propping up the /ES in the early morning hours that they decided let it leak early and catch all the would be sellers off guard. They can battle the sell volume much better when it dosn't come in big waves.. or so I would guess.

Another day, another massive market rally.
