Silver and oil and stocks (oh my)
Hilarity ueber alles ....
Click below to see a graphic illustration of bankster's dirty hierarchy of needs:
More leverage, more debt. Echo reverberates yet again the same problem that was never solved in the past three years.
Gundlach had fascinating numbers on his predicted "echo" of subprime credit problems redux and inadequate capital of TBTF banks. Severity problems impressive. http://bit.ly/ktGFUH
GIGANTIC game of chicken...
So what on earth would actually cause an unwind? Seriously, is there any reason for the unwind to start and scare the bejesus out of the TV viewing public?
Margin calls perhaps?
Any ideas? Please advise.
The first big seller of the indexes. The possible reasons for the first big sale are so many, why even speculate...
Margin calls will happen when it is beneficial to the bankstas and not before.
"what on earth would actually cause an unwind?"
How about an investor panic because QE is delayed? Does that make any sense?
Indeed as this rally already has QE3 factored in. A good scare to get the plebes to agree on QE3. So sometime around Jul 4th while CLOWNgress on recess. Gotcha.
You don't need a proximate cause; it just starts selling off.
Tick. Tock. Tick. Tock. [And everyone is just staring at the wires, not knowing which one to cut.]
Keep raising the price until you get a bid.
The E-trade baby is putting his baby bottle and dirty diapers up as collateral
Collateralized Poop Obligations?
I am teaching my diapered daughter to tell us that she has a Bernanke in her diaper instead of poop.
I will post a YouTube of it soon.
Lever it up baby. Balls to the walls! This never ends badly.
"We can only hope all those hundreds of billions in margin dollars succeed to exit at the same time in an orderly fashion when the inevitable unwind finally does occur".
Tyler, you are simply amazing in your wit and sarcasm. lolol.
I don't get it... individual investors are borrowing as much as they could. The market is close to the highest in 3 years. Yet the net worth of the investors are lowest ? So, that means those investors are losing their ass while the market is up ?
net, not gross
It's not just for basketbrawl anymore.
go out on a limb, hear some cracking, then go out further.
A tad off topic, but( I am sure some have seen it here),the average American was asked if they could come up with $2,000 cash, within(I think 30 days).
Better than 45% said NO WAY,24%-7% said pretty sure, and the rest said no problem.
May be off a percentage of two, but that was the jist of the survey.
Think about that for a second.
$2,000.00 lousy dollars.
Breakout to 1324 imminent.....
Its almost comical now lol.
CNBS isnt even attempting to justify the magic market.
Here's the thing, since everyone knows the market isn't really allowed to fall and stay low for anything length of time--the permament Benranke put--then no one is afraid to own it, leveraged. In fact, leveraging up on commodities, but not so much you'll get a margin call, is a sure way to beat hyperinflation.
We know that kind of protection will be allowed, physical?
...or not. Dam, wanted TZA at 36.55
can't afford not to, rilly; chips, please!
We don't know if these margins are long or short, do we?
There have been several serious voices on CNBC giving warnings about the stock market lately. I have been somewhat shocked.
Kaminsky, last week seemed visibly upset at the continued bullishness, and flat out told the audience "you need to get out of this market".
My take on the volume lately is that the serious sellers are running out of buying volume.
If any one is manipulating markets, it would be those running up the price to cause the shorts to cover and provide some bids to hit. I get the feeling that the bottom picking is over, all of the cash has been invested, and it is just a matter of time before the downslide commences. I will continue to manage my risk, of course....
