The more rates drop the less strength the dollar has - lines up with their other call for euro at 1.5 against dollar - Two insiders on opposite sides - Thing is Exgoldman execs are everywhere where goldman needs them to be .
3 to one odds Pimco losses
Since we're on the topic of Goldman... so JPM Is buying back shares now?!?!
I thought these guys were going under for the silver trade?!?!
Either the stress tests by the Fed was absolutely fucking useless... or JPM is not as exposed to silver as we suspect.
goes to show the power of the Press
everyone seems to have Overlooked that the very same JPM has been LONG on record breaking Copper, somewhere in the 80-90% of outstanding contracts, of course this doesn't make the Headlines
and this more than Hedging their Silver Short
There is a rumor that Turd received that the short squeeze is not JP but another bank.
surely this is contrary to their call for eur 1.50...unless bunds do even worse? maybe USTs crapping out will be the only thing to save the dollar.
I may be getting played like others - but my hunch was that Pimpco wasnt in the "front running pow-wow/conference circle this time, so they cashed out and waited to see what the play would be like the rest of us -- now I bet they make their move
you know that all the fu..kes have do do a repo 105 at the end of the last 2 weeks in the quarter. used to be a great time to market short until Qe was put in place so you couldn't front run the primary dealers. while the market has been doing what it does, this movement at the end of the quarter for treasuries has been good.
Also, if you chart tbt it sure looks like a head and shoulders pattern,
If Goldman sez short the 5-year, it's time to load up on TLT...
Bill Gross getting ready to back the truck up?
Fight club bitchez!
Difference is PIMCO is long Cash USD.
how do you figure that ?
I cant stand watching bill gross because he cant seem to get that rag out of his throat.
This and gold 1480 call ...hmm ...forced liquidations?
I also think we should touch 1237 on s and P
someone BIG is going down for the count.....hope its Blankefein
NerObama = a water boy for the new owners of the U.S. - Wall Street (that which comprised 13% of U.S. GDP in America's Great Days of the late 60s, but which comprises 41% now, and which produces 1/10th the jobs that manufacturing does).
We have a government owned by parasites that only excel in shifting money around, and in 'engineering' 'financial products,' many of which are ticking time bombs of wealth destruction, such as derivatives.
Wall Street is sucking the blood out of Americans.
These literal diseased parasites at Goldman Sachs and JP Morgan (and their friends in London, who ruined Britain, by the way) are stripping the copper wire out of the abandoned, foreclosed house that has become of this country (this after they torched the house after taking out 100 casualty loss insurance contracts on it); we know your role of complicity with the Giant Vampire Squid, Bernanke, Dudley, Frost, Sack, et al.
We will not forget.
So what? Eat shit and die! Very sincerely:
Squid, Bernanke, Dudley, Frost, Sack, et al.
Come on 3:30PM SPY rally so I can go short into the Japanese meltdown over the weekend.
COT report comes out at 3:30pm and we get an immediate "bump" in silver (small one).
Looks like shorts covering for the most part.
So kind of the squid to share.
not sure where pimco and gs are differing in their opinions
Squid did a business survey indicating expected 4%+ GDP growth.
Shanking each other in the showers. A year from now what remains will have to eat the corpse of the others in order to survive themselves. That ladies and gents is the result of central planning capitalism.
Yesterday it was, "...whomping up the crazy"; today, "shanking in the showers." I love this place!
Didn't PIMCO get out of all their UST positions a few weeks ago?
Shouldn't be too long from now that we begin to stop eating our own dead and, start devouring each other while on the hoof.
One day a knife in the back will be appreciated; at least you will still have your home.
CBO: President Obama understates future budget deficits by $2.3 Trillion
Gee, what a shocker. Then again, The Ben Bernank can just monetize all the debt... and starve half the world to death in the process.
Couldn't happen to a more deserving company. I've been watching some CSpan of Brooksley Born's questioning of David Viniar in 2010 today - the CFO saying a) Goldman's has no derivatives business (see him squirming to define that) and b) that Goldman had no idea of its risk associated with derivatives.
(Brooksley comes in around 1:12:00)
Gasparino over at Faux Business (as unbearable as CNBsC) claims Lord Blankfein is leaving Goldman Squid.

Tell me who is making the money by being on the correct side of the CDS markets, GS, JPM,MS etc all donating money to Japan. I say they should donate all the profits they are making in the unregulated OTC CDS derivitives markets, you dont think these Aholes are donating their money do you, they are donating Hank Paulsons bail out money, and Tarp and POMO and and and.
Latest comments by Don Coxe, believes bullion producers will out do bullion in next leg of the market.
"As a result Francesco Garzarelli has just released a trade update, advising clients to go short the 5 Year at 1.936% with a 2.30% target and a stop at 1.80%. As usual, since that would mean Goldman is now accumulating 5 Year inventory, it appears we will soon have a rather dramatic duel between the two biggest Wall Street titans: PIMCO and Goldman, at least as pertains to their outlook on rates."
I'm sorry, am I missing something? Why would GS be accumulating 5's if they think they're going down? And what's the "duel" if they both think the same thing? Are you saying that GS is giving us a head fake and they really like the market?
This is so confusing!
GS has a track record of "advising" people to take the opposite side of thrir own trades. When you short something, you have to buy it to close your position. By advising others to short, they are cultivating the buyers they will need to exit their position.
Funny that in a piece recommending a short on Treasuries Goldman doesn't even mention the possibility of QE ending in June.
Bill Gross is King Kong up in these parts. He will turn Golmand
Sacks into sausage!
Will the United States be in a position to repay these bonds 5 years from now? Based on the economic and social data from 2008 onwards and the coming tidal wave of boomer retirements...
Here's something to consider. El-Erian said this back in the July of 2010 before all the global revolutionary North African uproar. “The global financial crisis has also undermined the standing and credibility of the Anglo-Saxon economic model that emphasizes liberalization, deregulation, interconnectivity, and unfettered markets.” Indeed President Obama's powers are limited, but they are very significant. If you were Lloyd Blankfein and you were thinking that President Obama was going to side with you or with Dr. Mohamed A. El-Erian which way would you bet?
Let's look at it another way. Let's say you were the dictatorial leader of Egypt and you were wondering whether or not President Obama was going to side with you as the West's choice for controlling the region or whether President Obama would side with the Muslim Brotherhood as the new and powerful political force in the region.
How about this example? Let's say you're Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. You're trying to decide if President Obama is going to side with the sons of Abraham or the sons of Ishmael. If you could use J. P. Morgan and PIMCO together to take down Goldman Sachs and you were President Obama, would you do it? Could you do it?
Continuing along the same historical lines of religious influence, if you were Islam would you be willing to back a historically Christian banking enterprise (JPM) if it empowered over a historically Jewish banking enterprise (GS)? If you were J. P. Morgan would president Obama be savvy enough to fool you into a break from the Judeo-Christian heritage if enough money were involved?
What does the business of religion have to do with all this? Don't ask me, ask PIMCO's El-erian. He's the one who brought it up. If you don't know what Anglo-Saxon means here's a definition. A native or inhabitant of England prior to the Norman Conquest and primarily British in origin and a native speaker of the English language whose culture is strongly influenced by English culture such as that of the white Anglo-Saxon protestant or "WASP."
To reinterpret El-Erian's remarks, I think it's fair to say that it could read like this. The global financial crisis nearly killed the wasp. If that's true, then maybe, just maybe the White House believes the WASP will be convinced to compromise it's two thousand year history of alignment with Judeo-Christian ideals in exchange for a Goldman Sachs take-down. Not sure which side I would be on in that cage fight but looks to me like Tyler Durden may have finally found his fight club.
If this plays out like it would appear, then "We're building a new religion and Obama's calling you dude."
Backing GS's bets is usually a safe trade, in spite of the brainpower at Pimco. I would not want to be on the other side of Goldman.
