The Hindenburg Omen is so last week.  

Just wait until a hyper-paranoid chartist confirms the Cerberus Death Cross, and packs of six-headed dogs wielding flaming rapiers begin to invade major cities in North America.  One more false move by Obama and/or the Fed, and an ounce of Alpo will be worth more than an ounce of gold.  

Faux pessimism, bitches.

Yeah, keep getting angry at the "other".  It's exactly what they want you to do.

I thank the Gods for people like you, Red Neck. In any zero sum game, you need losers to pay off the winners. Faux pessimism, my ass.

Tyler, Can you open my comment and past the excell in the right way?

When I paste it, it's all messed up.

 

It's pretty good actually:

 

Here's the data for all Hindenburg Omens over the past 25 years:

Date of first Hindenburg Omen Signal  # of Signals  In Cluster DJIA  Subsequent  % Decline Time Until Decline Bottomed 8/12/2008 2 Watching Watching 6/6/2008 6 47.3% 276 days 10/16/2007 9 16.3% 99 days 6/13/2007 8 7.1% 64 days 4/7/2006 9 7.0% 34 days 9/21/2005 (1) 5 2.2% 22 days 4/13/2004 (2) 5 5.4% 30 days 6/20/2002 5 15.8% 30 days 6/20/2002 5 23.9% 112 days 6/20/2001 2 25.5% 93 days 3/12/2001 4 11.4% 11 days 9/15/2000 9 12.4% 33 days 7/26/2000 3 9.0% 83 days 1/24/2000 6 16.4% 44 days 6/15/1999 2 6.7% 122 days 2/22/1998 (3) 2 0.2% 1 day 7/21/1998 1 19.7% 41 days 12/11/1997 11 5.8% 32 days 6/12/1996 3 8.8% 34 days 10/09/1995 6 1.7% 1 day 9/19/1994 7 8.2% 65 days 1/25/1994 14 9.6% 69 days 11/03/1993 3 2.1% 2 days 12/02/1991 9 3.5% 7 days 6/27/1990 17 16.3% 91 days 11/01/1989 36 5.0% 91 days 10/11/1989 2 10.0% 5 days 9/14/1987 5 38.2% 36 days 7/14/1986 9 3.6% 21 days

(1) In September 2005, the Fed pumped $148 billion in liquidity from the first week in September, just before the Hindenburg Omens were generated -- to the third week of October, an 11 percent annual rate of growth in M-3 (2.5 times the rate of GDP growth and 5 times the reported inflation rate), to stave off a crash. The liquidity held the market to a 2.2 percent decline from the initiation of the signal.

(2) In April 2004, the Fed pumped $155 billion in liquidity from the last week in April -- right after the Hindenburg Omens were generated -- to the third week of May, a 22 percent annual rate of growth in M-3, to stave off a crash. Even with the liquidity, the market still fell 5.0 percent.

(3) The 12/23/1998 signal barely qualified, as the McClellan Oscillator was barely negative at -9, and New Highs were nearly double New Lows. Had this weak signal not occurred, condition # 5 would not have been met. This skin-of-the-teeth confirmation may be why it failed. It says something for having multiple, strong confirming signals.

Had to look up the target shooting thing.  Interesting.

It's good to see someone follow through on the signs and make it known.

If a dude who's blind and can invent a target shooting systems with electronics says to sell and get out of the markets, I'm with him.

If a dude who's blind and can invent a target shooting systems with electronics (and a beat-the-odds technical analysis algo with more than three variables) says to sell and get out of the markets, I'm with him.

My thoughts, exactly.  Liesman never invented anything other than a foreskin costume consisting solely of a pink shirt and vein blue tie.

Wow.  Clever, funny, disturbing, and truthful. Well done hedgeless_horseman.

A lot of weakness today in the big names of the nas100, specifically Apple. It was an early indicator of what was in store for the mkt, gapping way up and sliding all the way to friday's lows in the first hour of trading. This type of behavior has been more and more prevalent in the last week or so.

 

Outside of any "indicators" I think overall its just not smart being heavily exposed to equities.

What's really interesting is that the last half hour stick saves are either missing or ineffective. Considering how light volume is, the saves shouldn't be ineffective. Thus for some reason they are deliberately being withheld.

Do the powers that be want a lower market? This smells just like August/Sept/Oct of 2008.

traderjoe's picture

I contend that the PTB want a Republican 'victory' in November, because it will create a perception amongst the sheeple that they have some control over the outcomes..."taking the country back" and stuff. It will occupy the mindset (along with NFL, Fall TV season) for a good 6 months - MSNBC, Fox, etc. 

Of course, Republicans, Democrats, same thing.

They gotta chase anyone left into the next big T-bond sale.

TooBearish's picture

CD- you are definately on to something here - Ben needs cover to blow the FED balance sheet to 4 trillion, full montie QE2- a SPX move to the July lows (or lower) should provide cover, with the concobinant take down in the PMs and other commodities will blow up the bond market to near 2% 10yr and a generationally attractive mortgage refi/home price save. Especially as Congress will not change the tax carpet bombing coming in 2011 - Politically I am agnostic cause dem-rep its all the same - the Bama agenda is set and will not be unwound until 2012 earliest.  That's why the Dems are not sweating - they just don't give a shite cause they think alla heavy lifting has been done.

Do the powers that be want a lower market?

They may get it anyway as the USD remains a "safe haven." Troubles elsewhere continue to cause global investors to seek safety in the dollar and US Treasuries...for now.

So I can have faith that my Puts will make me even more money than I could fathom?

chunkylover42's picture

long calls on the Vix are also a great way to exploit down markets (technically put/call volatility, but you get the idea...) and they aren't as expensive as puts.

I'm sitting on some at the moment that expire in October.

firstdivision's picture

I do have some VIX calls, along with some inverse ETF calls.  Other than that I have been sitting on mostly Oct/Nov Puts on AAPL, F, GS, BA, and X.  Bought most of them 2 weeks ago (got lucky on my timing), and looking to possibly add more VIX calls with todays decline in the VIX. 

-1Delta's picture

personally, i find the gamma in OTM ES puts to more attractive than the VIX calls or the ETF puts...

My money is with Cramer on this "omen" since he is all knowing and would never deceive the public.

redpill's picture

The banner ads say I can make a lot of money with him, it's obviously a no-brainer.

whereismyorange's picture

Please stop mentioning Cramer. The more you do, the more I must endure his presence in my browser window.

Maybe if we start talking about Justin Bieber we will get some of his advertisements instead!

Explains most of Geithner's lack of attention to fix this decaying economy... he can't stop staring at that kids hair.

Justin Bieber? Jeez. If that's the case how bout Megan Fox?

Megan Fox, you say? Hmm, Megan Fox... Interesting, this Megan Fox theory. (Am I spelling 'Megan Fox' correctly? It is 'Megan Fox', yes?)

What about gold/silver mining stocks? 

sid farkas's picture

They will do extremely well from what I've gathered after reading a few articles/comments around here. PM's are unique in that they will go up regardless of what happens in the real economy.

We start from the axiom that only PM's are real money and that this fact has been obscured from the public because [insert pet conspiracy theory]. Eventually the public will realize this and they will clamor to get their hands on some, but there will be none available because you already bought it all. Then you have the last laugh.

Mining stocks were no refuge in the 2008 liquidity crash...

What about the "Kaiser Wilhelm" omen ? :=)))

George the baby crusher's picture

25%.....? I'm sticking to reading my tea leaves, they're coming in at 32,5%.

Marley's picture

Are the omens additive?  I.e., if there's a 25% chance of the market following the omen, then if you have 3 (4?) omens in a couple weeks, is that a probability of 75%?  Not that I have a dog in this fight, but I watch my dog.  She's been sitting for the last week looking at the gate all day.  So I closed my $235 401K account.  :)

ColonelCooper's picture

No.  After the omen has been confirmed, more events do not increase the odds of it's occurrence.  It was explained in an earlier thread.

Marley's picture

Thanks, I'll shoot the dog.
