Nice cat and mouse game we have here. All it took was 2 weeks of larger margin reqs.

Just goes to show, so many levers in the hands of those who want to perpetuate the status quo. And then they shovel their money around based on prior-knowledge. I think the bond blow-up will not be a sovereign one for long, but will go global and then take equities down and pm's up.

 

Still a few moves left.

We'll start red at the openings of the market and close green +1% thx. to this BS game and Benny B's comments on 60 minutes.

Too bad The Bernank wasnt asked about his fraudulent JP Morgue silver shorting ring.

This is just intelligent rulemaking.

You RAISE margins on risky things like silver, and LOWER them on riskfree stuff like Irish bonds.  It makes perfect sense to me.
