Stock and Bond trading will only be allowed if banksters can win. Any violaters will be shot on sight. Now, don't you wanna buy a little paper from us, little boy?
Breaking News: At 3:40 PM EST, two C-135 Stratolifters departed Andrews Air Force for Rome, Italy. The giant aircraft are loaded with 1,000 TSA agents on emergency loan to the Italian government. The mission of the TSA agents is to perform full body searches of short sellers to insure full disclosure of short positions in Italian bonds and stocks.
they will be looking at shorts all right.
Perhaps this is the way to find out who will be rich when the market collapses so the politicians know whose dicks to suck.
It will be easy because they are already naked. BTW (and more seriously) the article does not seem to clearly distinguish short selling from naked short selling. Huge difference since the latter is already illegal.
Right! But it requires work by the regulators to put a hold on the large naked positions. Illegal naked short selling of low priced issues was the game early in the last decade but it a change in command at the SEC was necessary before it was finally enforced. It took about ayear before the naked issues the SEC [program was fully sucessful
Naked short selling is only illegal if you lack a market making desk. Investment banks can naked short all day. If the prop desk wants to short without capital, he can just ring his buddy and scratch another line on the monitor bezel.
"Stock and Bond trading will only be allowed if banksters can win."
How are banksters not profiting by taking down Italy, and then profiting again in the future on the backs of the next taxpayer subsidized bailout?
Or does Mrs. Watanabe have a direct line to the institutional debt desks?
Here we go! Scrat time!
Disclosure...wouldn't it be nice if they implemented this at the CME for silver!
They won't because the banksters would lose (JPM). We can only have deals where they win by executive order. If you are not satisfied please proceed to the office of the Directorate of Secret Police
I love the smell of panic in the morning.
It sort of smells like soiled diapers Depends©.
I think that's a TM, Cog, not a C.....all depends, I guess
I just checked the pair I'm wearing and it's definitely a 'TM'.
My bad. :>)
Oh, too bad. "The WORLD is My Toilet" -GWAR
There has to be a joke here. Does a pope shit in the bond market? Or something...
Now that's what I call being prepared for the new economy.
Who said being prepared is just about bug out bags and bullion?
It provides a talking subject during the morning coffee.

Why even bother with these markets?
Never blame the actual thing that is wrong, blame those who see it is wrong

Why would a culture of corruption disclose anything?
absolutely. and those that comply would be fools would they not?
What sore losers! So it's okay to tear a new asshole on investors that short a stock when there is a rally, but as soon as the bull investors sees a major loss in their positions oh no.... you shorters have to let us know your shorting positions so we can overrun and rape you. What ass wipes! I'm not a perma-bear, I go both ways, but this time they have gone too far.
I think the Powers that be are now in a state where they must be truly in a panic trying to contain the cesspool's stink and all from wafting across the fields of profits to the city where the starving bears think to run the river's salmon that is coming in for them after many a moon wait to profit.
I agree, the banking cartel at this point must be in utter panic mode. They know it's a matter of time, there just putting off as long as possible. It's surreal to watch this unfold. They will do and say anything to keep the ponzi going. I just hope one day we get to watch them burn.
The Titanic has already hit the iceberg. All these measures aimed at keeping order are futile. The boat is sinking. At some point, no matter what, the scramble for lifeboats will and must begin.
Got popcorn? The show is just starting. And like any burning theater scenario, those who panic last -- die.
Of course you should market transparency. What's the alternative ? Someone has a balance sheet that has got 'goat poo' for assets and/or liabilities up the yazoo.
OK. So is this how it goes, how history rhymes?
>> short the euro, crises abates, short the dollar, next crises (Spain or Portugal?) short the euro, crises abates, short the dollar, next crises....
Sending an email to Conslob claiming 1% short in Assgen, just to dick with them.
(Used TCT's email address.)
Mynhair, you've been coming up with the best ideas since your MW days...
I'm doing the same.
This stuff is unreal. Just change the rules when they don't suit you. I really hope in the end Europe blows sky high. I am going to enjoy very much watching these liars suffer defeat. I'm a patient man, I just hope in the end they get whats coming to them. How much longer can this go on? You wouldn't think bailing wire and chewing gum would hold this long.
I used a shoelace once to bypass a system failure inside my Rig. It got me out of trouble just long enough to save the load and reach safe haven so repairs can be made.
bailing wire is pretty tough, bending it back end forth breaks it. so this might be italy's first bend over, it might take 2 3 4 times bent over. It takes longer for greece bailing wire cuz it has a unique affinity to being bent over and liking it. Poor dumbass irelands gets bent over over and can't quite figure out which way the turd is goin. Portugals bailing wire is now in a quality control testing lab being bent over tested for its integrity results due in the next few weeks
If you sit by the river long enough, you will see the body of your enemy float by. -Japanese proverb
Is a Chineese one: in this case you could as well be caught by a sudden flood wawe while sitting on the river's bank...
Smells like the next collapse is approaching. Final kick of the can for Europe coming up.
right so lets beat on the shorts and and play the blame game when the markets makes make sense and do what they were designed to do go UP and DOWN,(but if they go down too much we need to start our witch hunt). This bring to mind that old foolish rule "mark to market" what a joke that was, glad we got rid of that......
This is what the cocksucking politicians always do. Is anyone really surprised? They run the shorts up the flagpole. Is it not obvious that, as a breed, they suck ass.
It's always the "surprise" that shocks everyone. At the height of crisis of 2008 when everyone was looking at LEH, it was the AIG that turned out to be or chosen to be the worst. If things turn out to be as planned, it is not crisis.
