The Bernank will get right on this issue...just as soon as he finishes his Beef Wellington at the Waldorf-Astoria and his lunch 'meeting' with Jamie Dimon.

"Never let a serious crisis go to waste."

-- motion by Rahm Emmanuel

Supported by George W. Bush, Barack 'Hope & Change' Obama, Ben 'B52' Bernanke, Hank 'the world will end tomorrow if I leave without a blank check from Congress' Paulson (waterboy for The Squid & House of Morgan), Timothy Geithner (lackey in training) and the hungry mouths in executive board rooms on Wall Street.

This has the feel of one of those days where we stay significantly red.  There may be a dip buy toward the very end of the day, but it won't make a dent in today's losses.  Tomorrow is another story entirely though.  If I had to guess, I'd say we'll close around 1286.

He didn't say the market is a casino.

 (EU) ECB's Stark: The mentality among bankers has not changed; are still treating the markets like a casino- Notes US and UK deficit problems are worse than those of the Euro Zone. - Reiterates keeping rates low for too long carries a risk. - Must remove stumulative measures once an emergency has passed - Concerned about inflation in emerging markets. Sees no medium term inflation threat in the EMU; reiterates short term inflation in Europe is due to rise in energy prices. - Clarifies bond purchasing program, is a form of monetary policy and not a method of financing Governments

The speculator­s who are in control of the markets are like termites that require wood to eat and thrive on. Here the wood is the savings and the margin money used for trading the markets. The simple way to destroy the speculator­s is to keep your money out of their reach.

The exchanges have been reduced to gambling dens whereby the more powerful traders with deep pockets move the markets to maximize their own profits at the expense of the remaining not so powerful players. The big boys have enormous money power to move the markets in the direction which results in maximum profits for themselves­. They effectivel­y use the media to lure the other players in the market to a position where they would incur maximum loss. It is similar to rounding up maximum sheep before shutting the doors of the slaughter house.
