    Here’s a question that might have you pondering: Is gold a commodity? More importantly, are we doing a disservice to the gold industry by calling gold a commodity? These may sound like silly...

History quiz.  What happened on March 6, 2009 that caused this index to bounce from 351.05?

Gov Blago named Burris to Senate (rather let him BUY the seat).

And Celtics beat Cavaliers.

And the big boys backed up the truck and bought indexes?

Does the BOE QE announcement have anything to do with US markets?  I didn't have an answer, I was trying to find one from someone here.  http://blogs.wsj.com/economics/2009/03/05/bank-of-england-statement-cutting-rates-quantitative-easing/

The other inflection point I can see in the 5 year chart was a pretty obvious one - 753.69 and dropped like a stone on September 22, 2008 - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bankruptcy_of_Lehman_Brothers

Houston, we have a problem. This is a bit O/T, but you would think an event in our near future like this one --http://www.curtrenz.com/Z49.JPG

-- would be all over the news. Comet Elenin (C/2010 X1) is for real, if it does manage to miss Earth, we will still pass directly through the tail of the Comet.


Why the MSM silence?


What will the markets do when the sky is lit up like a Roman Candle?

They got 9 of those things? I thought there were only 3. At least, that's what they told me when they said they were sold out.

Potential Perturber


"Comet Schwassmann-Wachmann 3 is in the process of disintegrating. Since 1995 observers have witnessed the Jupiter family comet fragmenting from it's nucleus. Orbital periodicity is roughly 5.33333 or 5 and 1/3 years.

I forgot to mention the dates earth crossed through the ion tail debris of comet schwassmann-wachmann. The earth-debris dates usually are missing from the picture. :) If you're interested in playing with the comet arrival dates...Sept 2011"

780 would be where that would happen, below 780 and the 50 gets tested next. If rut is allowed to break 780 then something is up, 50 has not been tested since Sept.

They will. Last half hour brings in the dip buyers. Always has, always will. That's just how our market works in these times. BTW: DJIA seems to be unaffected by the pull backs in SPX and NAZ.

Since when has the DJIA EVER been the leading index? Nazz always leads the way Harry. Always.

You do realize that the DJIA is not a weighted index?  That means IBM is the largest component by a large margin at it's up over 3% today.  8 risers and 22 fallers...

Yes, I get it about DJIA - I was just making a point that it's odd that it's actually held up as an index in comparison to SPX and NAZ. Nothing other than an observation.

It is a scaled average.  In other words a weighted mean.

Please provide triplicate copies of all complaints, hand written please, and shove them up your arse.  Insertion should be easy since the Ben Bernanke and the Turbo Timmy have already cleared a path through the sphincter.

It is my wish and perhaps other reader's, that IWM $80.00 is a "top-tick" figure and perhaps have the slightest chance to make money in two directions. That's all we're askin'.

One wouldn't think they could sangbag forecasts 16 quarters in a row and people would still fall for the earnings "Beat" either.

Shares in the world's largest zombie maker are, as of yesterday, free and fair game for good Whack-a-mole fun...with one caveat.  Expect volatility ahead of expiration.

All one needs to understand are two immutable facts.  First, the volume yesterday and today represents upside exhaustion on the stock.  Second, it is highly likely that Steve Jobs will not be returning to duty...[never mind the new narrative from criminal syndicate Wall Street bankers that he is not important for the company's future...which is simply ridiculous.]
