I don't feel wealthier, :(

Today on cnbc:

Bob Pisani: I'm here with Joe Ratterman, President of BATS, the third largest exchange. Joe, the Dow broke 10,000 have you seen any increase in volume?

Joe Ratterman: (silence)

True but his doesn't bode well for the Deflationist argument unless you consider the deflationary portion starting early March.

does that mean the cnbc closing bell, circle jerk has been cancelled?

a rhetorical question since once can guarantee there is no "djREALLY 7537" hat. in the absence of a hat, the real number will not be reported on cnbc. 

seriously, stunning when faced with that stark truth.

Amazingly Erin Bernett   was mumbling about 25% down in real terms before Jimbo

jumped in.

What a great shame Jimbo's been bumped........

Even more amazingly, Erin Burnett is the only female CNBC host who hasn't let her body go to complete shit! To continue this rally, I'm going long on whoever does the catering to the CNBC offices!

TD-  Time to tighten up the CAPTCHA (31 plus __ equals 37 ?!)

Well, as long as I never travel again, or buy anything imported, or made with imported parts, then I'll be just fine!  Is much of our stuff made in China?

 ...over the past 10 years (the last time the DJIA was at 10,000) 


 Should read "the first time the DJIA was at 10,000".

That level has been criss crossed a couple of dozen times in the last decade.

Oh, deflation will come, unfortunately the banks will be nice and liquid after having sold back all our shit to us at inflated prices and then down they'll go and we'll sell them all this nicely pumped stocks at bargain basement prices... then 7 months later, the market will skyrocket and the cycle continues.


Keep buying equities and sending our money to the corporations people! Don't buy Treasuries, buy high yield! Don't buy our country, make our dollar weaker!

We will never unite because we are too stupid and this country deserves to fail since no one wants it to win.

That's right, don't buy Treasuries, buy Wells Fargo FDIC insured paper!

Oh no, I absolutely believe everyone should be buying Treasuries out their ass and completely fuck the banks due to capital ratio requirements, but nobody believes it so hey, what does it matter. I'll still make fun of people for sending money to China and then bitching about a weak dollar.

That's like taking a shit and complaining that it stinks.

I want to understand how it ever got to be that we give the corporations our money and they give it to the government to tell them how to rule us.


Why the fuck do people still invest with these shitty companies?

The DOW would be the price of GE because that is the only company still in there since the start :p

If you mean 10 years then its probably negative in a similar way

Not just GM.

Now-worthless-piece-of-shit stocks like Eastman Kodak, Citigroup and Woolworth have also been dropped from the index to inflate its value.

It's more like the entire US was hit by a giant shrink ray, our neighbors, houses, businesses, and currency all look relatively normal to us inside our shrunken bubble. But if we were to ride a time machine back to 2000, everything would look giant, everyone would appear to be 10 feet tall.

The point is basically to take the 10K Dow party with a grain of salt. Our tape measure has been shrunk, and by gold standards, it looks like a doll toy in our hands. It's not saying the Dow is under valued, It's like saying 3' tall is the new 6'11".

You'd be celebrating, too, if you had beaten the stock market equivalent of the 1986 Chicago Bears.  I know this rally has hurt anyone who has stepped in front of it, but these dirty ass sell-side pumpers from Wall Street and CNBS have pulled off the improbable.  More important question:  Who was the first person of the CNBS set to mention that the hats need to go back into storage for "next time 'round".

any clues on when this ends. Market up 65% in 7 months without any pullback along the way.

I'm kinda sick of this
