Awww, man! I was gonna be the first poster and, oddly enough, 'promptlier' was gonna be the subject.

Well played, Porky.

now wait a second. Are we sure this isn't a blatant attempt to get as much people in on the long side before letting it come crashing down for a while to garner political will and support from the sheeple for QE3?


If big money really wants to go long, they won't do it so brazenly right?

I wouldn't.

I'd say "Are we sure this isn't a blatant attempt to get as many people..."

I got burned by this and want everyone to know what I know.

It came across DJ news wires this am that the trade was a DX trade.

I really do believe the rumor about it being a es trade is bunk and meant to trap us

little people. Somebody either wanted to get short higher or wanted extra profit to make the quarter and started the rumor and it worked. Who Knows who, but they probably are backed by the full faith and.............. of the FED. With their blessing to steal everybody's retirement funds so the big banks can keep paying big bonuses. And according to CNBC "earn their money".

Side note-- Why are their heads not hanging off the Brooklin bridge???

There comes a time when it is just too much-- you think??

Looks like they are protesting budget cuts/austerity measures.

Per the flyer one of them gave me:

Richest 1% get 44% of New York income
Wall St gets $15 billion in stock transfer tax rebates
Cuomo wants to cut taxes for the top 1% while slashing public services and closing schools.

Other labor related stuff. One group of communists. One group carrying an anarchy banner.

The charts on their flyers look like Excel 97... These people really are suffering.

I'm already 250% net on that trade.

I got eight balls and hookers stacked up like cord wood.

(Edit: there's always challenges to being long physical. I'm sure you all understand)

Labor is being screwed by their own Unions Bosses. That protest today is an effort to finish collapsing our economy. They think once they collapse the economy that can step in and take over. I don't know what they think will be worth taking over and nether do they. They will starve to death as States go their own way leaving Washington D.C. to rot.

Personally, I'm a libertarian, so I don't really have a problem with unions (freedom of assembly, and a constitutional right to have contracts enforced seems to fit with collective bargaining). I do some volunteer work for our local school district. The average cost per student is almost $15,000 with an average of 22 kids per classroom so that works out to about $360,000 per class. I know our teachers average around $60,000 so that means $300,000 disappears into the government wasteland. In our district, almost a third of the entire operating budget goes to paying for transport and private tuition for out of district programs for special needs students, as per state mandated programs. The rest, god only knows. I find it hard to blame the unions for state fiscal imbalances. I find it real easy to blame government for fiscal imbalances.

In the private sector, GM was one of the crappiest run companies in history. Again, I find it hard to blame the UAW.

That said, the unions themselves are pretty shitty organizations and mandatory participation rules/ automatic salary deductions for union dues is also fucked up. I don't like a lot of this, but I find it hard to through unions and labor under the bus.

A link would be nice. Or.. better yet, a video. "Mob" is quite open to interpretation, and so is "unruly".

In the morning, before coffee, I'm "unruly".

The same quixotic behavior occurs when /es plunges and then by some act of unicorn prancing shortly thereafter goes to unch.

The fucking market is a big fart joke.
