Does the Fed really think they can inflate to entice the dumb money?

Or inflate until the "recovery" actually takes place?

Is that a helicopter I hear?

Big Red's picture

About once a week, a dark helicopter arrives, hovers within about lateral 200 feet of the rooftop for anywhere between 10 and 20 seconds, then journeys on, likely towards DC via a line near Camp David, although in "airmiles" I'm not that close at all.

Late summer/fall, I got to see my first UAV (drone) pass almost directly over the house. (Perhaps they're being tested/fab'd at Hagerstown, MD airport???)

Once, by sheer accident/happenstance, in our former residence about 2 years ago, I hustled a forgotten bag of garbage out to the curb in the early morning, only to find my garbage was already picked up-but our neighbors on either side of the street, in both directions, still had theirs outside.

I'm not paranoid, and these are honest observations. Why the heck would I make stuff like this up?

In my other live's here on the web, do I write too much, rail too much (hopefully intelligently once in a while), sign a petition that makes sense, etc.???

Oh, well, to return to the question "Is that a helicopter I hear?", man, have I ever....! (Sorry for hijacking your train of inference, I realize they aren't Ben's over my house...)

Happy Days. It's a Fonzie scheme.

I think the Fonz could have pulled it off...this is more like a Potsie scheme.

What's the normal insider selling/buying ratio?

Could it be this is already a Weimar market? Is it simply the reflection of money printing thus far and QE to infinity given FDIC requires multi billions per month until just a few banks are left and 48 of 52 states are worse than Greece. To beat this market you need to own gold and gols stocks. In Gold We Trust.

Yep, I couldn't believe it when I found out Hulk Hogan was NOT the strongest man in the world even after smashing Nikolai Volkov and the Iron Sheik.

This information is no good. These people use I think it's 10-b5 programs that constantly put their shares up for sale so that they can "dump for real" without it being pegged to any internal news about their own company. It's an insider trading loop hole. The sell to buy ratio is always going to be 20x to 60x. I found Goldman Sachs programs for doing this long time ago but lost the links and research.

Out of curiosity, do these numbers include outright stock grants or does anyone track similar numbers that include stock grants?

Many companies no longer require executives to front any money for their stock; they just issue stock grants. This number would seem more meaningful if it considered stock grants.

Its good to point out insider selling outweighs buying, as it has for a long time now, but most insiders -who run the companies- are likely associated with the derivatives trade tied to their companies' cash flow, assets and earnings.  If they're getting out  now in droves, it means their access to wealth is no longer available.  Not that their company is particularily in trouble per se.

And yet, there's another statistic that makes for an oddity when put together with the insider buy/sell ratio. The "little guy" isn't participating.

Odd that the two groups would be on the same side with respect to this rally.

Please stop this crying. You have to trade that market that's in front of you, whether up or down. If the market was going down, you seriously don't think that momentum chasers will not be chasing it down and have some vested interest in keeping the market perpetually up? they want to be out at the end of the day

DOW/SP500 daily charts continue to show signs of being overbought.

The weekly chart is bullish/neutral:  ie a moderate uptrend.

Keep in mind that trends with longer time frames have more influence over trends with smaller time frames.

The bear market rally from March 2009 will not end until the weekly chart turns down.

The very choppy USD Index daily chart is now neutral and the weekly chart continues to give bullish warnings.
