Bob Wiley: Baby step to four o'clock. Baby step to four o'clock.


Bob Wiley: step onto the elevator... baby step into the elevator... I'm *in* the elevator.

Bob Wiley: [to himself] ... baby steps get on the bus, baby steps down the aisle, baby steps...

I know what you're thinking. "Did he fire six shots or only five?" Well, to tell you the truth, in all this excitement I kind of lost track myself. But being as this is a .44 Magnum, the most powerful handgun in the world, and would blow your head clean off, you've got to ask yourself one question: Do I feel lucky? Well, do ya, punk?

No doubt. Picked up FLCL3 soundtrack in June and I can't stop playing it.

Cool anime.  My pick after shooting star.

Tue, 08/10/2010 - 16:43 | 513534's picture

Check out this version, it's not a fan edited video but rather comes off the FLCL dvd. Little Busters is probably my favorite song on the album. Other big favorites are I Think I Can, Blues Drive Monster, Carnival, Crazy Sunshine, Funny Bunny and Shooting Star. It's all good!

It doesn't matter how much QE they do. The addict has reached a point where the tissues have emasculated and he needs to go to detox or die. Sh-- and what do they do? Push in the needle. 

All that you need to know about market direction is that the biggest markets of the SP500 are in austerity mode. China, India, UK is choosing austerity, the rest of Europe will have no choice but to. What do you think happens to the bottom line of multinational companies whose key markets are shrinking? You bet we are headed down baby, I am short this stupid rally.

That's all it is now - hope fueled rallies in anticipation of more free money and borrowing from a non-existent future. We should all be so proud...

Once a snake becomes so hungry

that it starts to eat its own tail,


you don't exactly know what is going to happen,

you don't exactly know how or when its going to turn out,

but you can be kinda pretty sure

that its not going to go well

for the snake ....

Buying your own debt is a sure fire admission that deflation and higher bond prices are coming

Only to those who wish to face reality. Which seem to be far and few between when you can still hear the cries from the herd of "Don't fight the Fed". As long as people wish to spin this (to themselves) as "good" for stocks, all reality is stopped at the door.

When it comes to trading the trend is the only reality there is,

and the trend is up. Period.

When it comes to commenting and spinning and pontificating,

then reality is whatever you want it to be.

Agreed regarding trading.

However, the suckers in this market are average Jane and Joe, who are told to "invest" in the market, not trade. They have been told, still are being told, that in the long run they will come out way ahead in stocks for their 401(k) and IRA. These people are not trading and couldn't trade primarily because their accounts aren't that flexible and they aren't trained to do so. Thus they are the suckers for the machines.

"When it comes to trading the trend is the only reality there is,

So even after a lower low you tell us the trend is still up?!


Your "reality is whatever you want it to be"...Excellent "technical analysis". Blind guessing and jumping to conclusions are we....?


Thanks for sharing

Very few people in my experience have the ability to admit that their future is screwed by inexorable logic until it is too late. I choose to provide for the future and play the game in the meantime as well. Its a helluva of a tightrope, but beats not playing at all, IMHO

Hum, I thought government was supposed to protect average Joe and Jane from the sharks of the world. Meaning regulate the markets and provide a fair economic system they can prosper in. Not cradle to grave care but not an adversarial system. Doesn't look like it's ever been a fair game, though that's exactly what Joe is sold from kindergarten. Government is not only not protecting the people but are deliberately exposing the people to the sharks.

They said sack and shrinkage in the same sentence - heh heh...
