Thousands (maybe millions) of Americans are cashing in their retirement accounts early, just to pay bills.

bring on the dancing girls! boo yah! call jim cramer! we need the bagholders now bad....

maybe the government can mandate that all retail IRA holders invest their cash now! No holding cash! They have to buy and let JPM and GS rape them....

they own Congress, so let's see some action corraling the peasants after the first!

Looks like it's time to implement plan U.S.S.R. or Ultimate Social Security Returns.  It's a new tax of 25% on top of what you already pay and will be invested on your behalf via JPM or GS.  It's called "Ultimate" because this plan has 0% change of failure.  It's called "Returns" because this time you'll be getting it back, unlike the old Social Security program.  We promise.

The more that individuals take money out of the market, the higher it will be pushed.  Dow 36,000 if there are no investors left!

How can there be no investors left, when they pulled a cumulative $100 billion out of stock funds this year?  

Maybe the dumb money (mutual funds) will start coming back when the market is 1,000 points higher.

"Pimco Total Return this month said it is expanding its policy to allow investments in equity-linked securities for the first time since 2003."

We know how this works (some of us longer than others)...market goes up high enough that all the bond chasers will kick themselves for not being in equities. Stupid peasents rush back into stocks right at the top as the "house" sells into the panic buying. Market goes down and the cycle continues.

You think this is all new? That it has happen over the last 5-10 years? It is not. Just more people becoming aware. And just like gambling, people will come back even though they know the odds are against them!

CNBC was pumping equities today, inbetween noting that many stocks, and the indices, were at two year highs, then having more pump-monkeys on talking about buying financials. 

Amazing.

outflows ? I thought they been flowed allready? I keep thinking the shadow market is probably trading aaple at 43.50 but for appearances the ppt has a few hft bots making it appear to be trading at 325.50  for the dumb retail guys like me sitting at the kitchen table with the laptop.

nobody, save for a few hedge funds, gives a rats ass about manipulated stocks prices anymore.

Yet they seem to give a rats ass about manipulated bonds. Central banks don't buy alot of stocks, they prefer bonds, especially government paper.

Who's the chump?

Bed, Bath, and Beyond gapping up $3.00 to a fresh, new, world record high after hours.

Wow, I guess that the "Endgame for the Financial System", the "Total Collapse of the Global Economy", and the "Systemic Meltdown of The Consumer" has been delayed for a few years....

LOL.

Last I heard, food stamps is now the biggest freebie fraud game being played here in Los Angeles.

Virtually anybody can get food stamps if you fill out the right forms.

And people can buy anything with them:  Starbucks coffee, sheets and pillowcases at BBBY, Lululemon workout outfits, even yoga classes....

Robo - I enjoy your bullish contrariness, but am a little confused as to how you reconcile a market that is headed up with the dismal facts facing this country. Unemployment stubbornly high, and the overall sales environment much more challenging. Results only look good relative to a lousy prior year. Maybe you don't try to reconcile, but still... things are tough, and it is hard to see how that can be good for the country, let alone stock valuations in the near term.

BBBY who's biggest competitor went BK ? Best Buy is more of an indicator of today's consumer and they're not sharing the same enthusiasm for the "Consumer".

  Circuit City went belly up, one of BBY main competitors, that should help them but apparently they are are not in the club... Its all smoke and mirrors, the fucking banks are insolvent and  they lead the rallys.

Home builders, Banks,  and Retailers rallied  because that was the "play of the day" put in by the "deciders". The Bernank and the TBTF Banks blasted those sectors with their Ol Buddy Hank Paulson's Digital Bazooka. Nothing new.

My prediction for May 2011 -- oil/gas prices rise --- DIG up big by March.  You heard it here first.

Thanks for the chart. I pointed this out on another thread as well. As with my company we are seeing another, albeit much larger, example of how strong the consumer is.

Also, as I mentioned on the other thread regarding my company's name and location, I do not want to list it here as it is a small business. However, if Tyler wants to verify my information, I will gladly tell him the name and website on the condition it is not listed here. At least that way, you will know from him/her/them that I am legitimate.

Harry, you're a douche!  There is likely not a single thing that you have posted on ZH that is "legitimate".  You probably don't even have a Harry Wanger....you more than likely have a Bald Pussy!
