Just got done reading this over on Bloomberg. WTF??!! There is just NO WAY this is legit. How do rational people look at this and say "wow, they must be good." Jezus, how many signals need to go off before somebody does something about these scum bags??!! KILL THE SQUID!!

I'm hoping for something with a lot more teeth... I want them dismantled. It's the only way you really end it all. Otherwise, they write in SEC settlements into their profit forecasts and it becomes a cost of doing business.

This is called a vertically integrated super monopoly.  It's like a manufacturing company that controls all of its supply chain, or in the case of a food company as an example, also controls the FDA.  LMAO.

/sarcasm on/ Now wait just a minute here.  Have none of you kept up over the years with the Yahoo! boards, where only the greatest traders since Jesse Livermore reside?  According to the posters, in the last TEN YEARS no one has lost on a trade, either long or short.  So why is this story considered so unbelievable? /sarcasm off/

i don't know why you guys are so surprised...they run the game, they own the government, in fact, they are now running the global financial system.

any thought that the US government has any power any longer to control them or their activities is a pipe dream. its over.

I don't think anybody is surprised at this. Tyler's not expressing surprise; he is just decompressing or gradually floating down from an Endorphine induced high. And in that process he is just uttering random words and phrases, which makes it seem that he is surprised, but he isn't. Let me give you an example. Are you surprised when you orgasm after a long ****? It is to be expected, right? You call her names, your utter the name of the God you believe in, you tremble and shake and make weird faces, but you aren't surprised. This is exactly similar to that. GS ****s us and orgasms every single time; how is that not statistically possible? There is no statistics, mathematics or economics involved in this. This is just Biology. It is their love for us and how they express it by fornicating with our future and enjoying every minute of it.

By the way, I have read that 9 out of 10 folks on this web site don't trade for a living. Hence, most of you are nincompoops.

So Goldman made money every single trading day in the past quarter? Let's express the question in statistical terms: if I flip a coin 63 times, and it comes up heads 63 times in a row, what are the odds of it coming up heads again on the next toss? Well-schooled non-traders will say that the odds remain 50-50, regardless of previous outcomes. Traders will realize that if a coin comes up heads 63 times in a row, the next toss will be heads also, for the simple reason that the coin is dishonest and the game is rigged.

Its as simple as you're playing Stu Ungar in a game of no limit holdem and he's staked by the Fed, and you've got your kids piggie bank.  Guess who's going to win that one..  I'm suprised it took GS this long to open up a bank "branch" so that they can borrow our money to take our money away from us.  It shows they're not as smart as some people think...lol

I think the analogy is that Goldman can see the flop before the cards are turned over.

And, may I suggest a less dated reference, perhaps Phil Ivey. lol.

Market has been very volatile.  Up and down a few percent a day.  Frequently even within a day.


And on no occasion, not a single one, were GS caught on the wrong side of a volatile move.


This to me is very clear evidence that they are controlling the market

Anybody ever consider that Madoff may have been the front for something bigger than Madoff? My question isn't so much what was Madoff doing but who's doing it now that Madoff is gone? Madoff's Ponzi was a front for something else and Madoff took the sword for whatever reason.

It's all there folks, laid out in front of us like a 3000 piece puzzle. Only in this case there's no picture on the front of the box to guide us and in fact the picture slowly morphs each day. But none the less it's all there. Who's up for some group puzzle solving?

If we had an electorate who cared, this would mean something.  It would be a red light.  But, no, the CNBS crowd will explain to us what Masters of the Universe the gaggle of 20-something GS employees are....

The electorate does care.  You wouldn't see so much misplaced vitriol between the "two" parties if people didn't care.  The majority of them are just uneducated and/or raised by ex-hippie baby-boomers to believe that Peter (the future) can always be robbed to pay Paul (themselves).

Nonsense.  The Greek electorate is not different.  They have had their punchbowl taken away.  So now they riot!  It will be no different in Germany, the UK, or the US when the alcohol disappears.

Where was the Greek electorate when the government was raping the future for the present?  Answer: living the easy life on bribes from the gov't.  Or maybe throwing rocks at the banana-eating Germans sitting in the trees.  :)

americans have had their punchbowl taken away and yet we see no reaction.

the banking reform bill is a travesty of justice, no reaction. while the greek parliament discussed their new bill, the greeks demonstrated their anger.

greece was run by a military junta until 1974, maybe the fear of oppression is fresher in the peoples minds?

and what s wrong with bananas? perhaps not enough sugar?

you know, there is one thing we could do.....we could all start calling GS, the main switchboard, and just asking which way the market is going to go on an given day....

if we could get thousands and thousands of calls going in, that would tie things up....along with showing them that some of the peasants ain't too happy about having their cash stolen for lloyd's bonus.

The more important question is what happened on the 7 days that they earned $25-$50M...I hope someone was fired for that underperformance.  I have a sell rating on the stock until we can see a full quarter of only $100M plus days of net trading revenue.
