It's a fuckin' par-tay
You talk about them never rasing the margin on S&P, as they have silver 5 times this week, but what about crude in 2008?
I dont remember any margin increases as oil ran up to $147.
It's obvious the exchanges have control over the underlying market thru "margin rates"
Just snapped like a rubber band holding a brick. Look out below people.
HOly fuck...bottom dropped out of it. SL triggers are going batshit insane.
I'm seeing zero buying volume, friday is going to be very very weak.
And everyone is in on all time high margins as well. History may not repeat itself exactly, but it sure does rhyme well.
This is people running from the government credit card. They have come to subsidize the commodity markets by eating giant losses.
we need a system restart
You are going to get one. If the paper trades aren't in line with the actual delivery costs/price then this is going to get very, very, very strange. That reserve stockpiled that Obama talked about will be gone in two days because of hoarding, and the economy is going to seize up again.
More than likely drop dead for good.
SWISHY SWASHY GOES THE TIDAL WAVE OF MONEY, WHERE SHE GOES NEXT IS ALL ABOUT GRAVITY...
Just a little texas hedging till we finally whip ghaddafi and libya and iran. Should be no trouble. LOL
darn those speculators. oh wait, we like it when the prices are going in THIS direction.
On a retail end it's awesome...but last time it did it the market tanked into the 6000 range....then all the world governments started to print money hand over fist.
Anyone care to see if history repeats itself.
This time....it's Canada's turn along with the rest of BRIC.
The casino got everyone in, then turned off the lights. Who now will step up and buy oil when they see in minutes they change the entire rules of the game? This is going nowhere, wouldnt be surprised to see flash crashes everywhere.
Yea, right? 5 silver margin hikes in one week and they open up the oil limit to allow it to go down.
"All of your monies are belong to us..."
YUP!!! The big reset button in the sky is about to be pushed.... sorry folks... good luck
We have only a few months left...
I take your planet X and raise you one "Second coming of Christ".
Is he a giant asteroid?
This website claims Jesus will make a comeback on May 21's 2011 and the earth will be destroid on October 21'st 2011.
Whats funny is your "Planet X" will pass in front of the earth on October 19th...
What are the odds.
Well, if he's a hemorrhoid, it's timmay...Saw it for a fact on the Banzai poster
Cute. Gigante Erectus.
Thanks for the hot tip on ANGST.
I'm sorry...what does this mean? Oil/Gas going up or down?
once again cnbc nails it in their forcasting
(that one always gets me, cant stop giggling on that answer.)
Down and the anchor isn't tied to anything. It's just spinning out of control taking out anyone that hedged on inflation. basically all the banks are going to need another TARP.
This time it'll cost four trillion.
I wonder if AIG is still in the business of covering errors in judgement. If they are then.........
" Everyone has moved from one side of the boat, to the other. What happens next is anyone's guess."
Nope. Captain Bernanke orders them all to run back to the other side boat to balance things out. In T minus 5 . . .4 . . .3 . . .2 . . .
No no, everyone familiar with maritime traditions knows that when a boat is sinking, the only solution is to print more money.
May 21st is the end of the world.
Try Sept 20-21st...... 4 major comets coming and 1 will hit the earth
Sad thing is that I've already bookmarked the link and am musing about shorts to play.
They'll print their way through a comet-crash too. It's the only thing they know.
I know, I wrack my brain for an issue that would absolutely have to take a hit on a disaster and I just can't find it! That's how fucked up things are.
The shorts of the best looking woman at arms length so you can play the "let's screw on last time before we die" line.
If you don't die, then you can feed her some canned hamz afterward... reduce the inventory and all... so she doesn't feel cheap and what not.
I think they are pissed off with silver.
Remember a few weeks ago the news about an options trader who bought 100,000 July 2011 puts with a strike price of 25 for 0.10 each? That 1 million dollar investment (remember each put is for 100 shares) is now worth $6.5 million 'cause those puts are now trading for 0.65. .....Ben is tat U ?
July 2011 puts, it's not a profit until the trade is closed.
$6.5 million wouldnt even be pocket change for a few seconds for the Bernank.
WTF? Low oil good for 90% of the population. Low stock prices bad for 10% I thought?
BTFD......maybe one time too many......
How do you move the limits same day?
Talk about moving the goalposts.
If I did in a 7-11 what the Lords do daily in the markets, I'd be locked up for life.
Massive dis-connection in everything paper relative to all things physical. What else do you expect to start happening?
How can gold be down $48?
3 PM Margin calls must have really hurt.
Oh look, more hyper controlled inflation.
To be continued...
The secret to winning big in the market is not to be right all the time but to lose the least amount of money possible when you are wrong. As long as you win larger than you lose, you will be a profitable trader at the end of each year. Pride, ego and stubbornness prevents a trader from reaching the levels that very few can master.
