Did some Goldman trader have a huge house party bash last night and as a result half of Wall Street did not report to work today? Starting around 10 am today, it appears everyone took one long Starbucks break and never looked back. It is amazing the Dow didn't hit the proverbial 36k.

 See Charles Biderman live on CNBC  going well off script, saying the Government may be the  mystery market buyer.

Poor Maria , as Mr Biderman continued on, explaining strange low volume up moves & the notorious last half hour ramp ups.

Yeah, things were subdued today.  They usually have a lot more fun at his expense, snickering at his matter-of-fact delivery of... well... the facts.  Maria says one of her contributions has been to give the individual investor more data at their disposal.  But it's high time to sidestep dear Maria, because she's been bought off.  To start, a twitter bar at the bottom of the screen to reveal realtime spiking ESH10 as she's yakking right after the closing bell.  And a hack into the CNBS audio whenever the Mystery Buyer is at work with .

Way to call Biderman a conspiracy theory for suggesting with cause that the government could be buying stocks to manipulate the market, do they have some sort of contractual obligation on CNBC where if someone says the government is doing something bad that they are forced to call the guy a conspiracy theorist or laugh at them, all it does is make the CNBC host look stupid, no wonder their ratings are tanking, I wonder if they will ever realize how their corporate owners are screwing over their network...if not they'll be lucky to have that E*Trade baby watching their shows a year from now.

The gloves came off right away, when Biderman answered Scott Wapner's question about his bearish outlook with "well, somebody's buying stocks, but we don't know who" and backed up his statement with the disconnect between what he has seen over the years, and what is happening now.  

Wapner's attempt to pin the conspiracy theory on Biderman was countered by Maria's positive statement about Biderman's detailed research on tax receipts and fund flows.  (Does she see the writing on the wall and knows she may need to go looking for a job soon?  Maybe Trimtabs is hiring?)

So, Wapner tries to "push back" and slip in that infuriating "improving economy" crap and Biderman lets him have it with "well, where is the economy improving?" and cites continuing weakening in take home pay and consumer credit.

Icing on the cake was Dean Curnutt's parting shot about buying puts on the S&P.

I'll bet the E-Trade baby is considering a Trimtabs subscription.  God Bless You, Charles Biderman, keep their feet to the fire.

Another important event occurred, this in December. A clearinghouse held a Letter of Intent to supply the London metals exchange with 250 metric tonnes of gold bullion. The contract was interrupted. The method used to disrupt and derail the contract is a story unto itself. Little is known in verifiable form. The point is that London bankers were denied an important channel of gold in supply. At the same time, demands came from private billionaires to take back possession of their gold in allocated accounts.


They are often called in the gold industry the 'sovereigns' politely. When pressed for details, my sources tell of their Chinese background. In recent weeks, the billionaires have been joined by others from Central Europe, in particular from Switzerland. So London is being drained of gold and not being resupplied, from the front door and from the back door. A breakdown is coming, and accidents assured. Gold is the ultimate vulnerability.


 It underpins the USDollar, competes with the USTreasury Bond, while the USDollar remains buttressed by the Petro-Dollar defacto standard. That too has been served notice. See the Saudi announcement last May 2009, with Russia, China, Japan, and Germany at their side. Eventually, crude oil sales will not be fulfilled in US$ settlement.

Geithththner and BS Bernanke SNIFF vapers! 

So, all the mola on the sidelines; is it being held out of the market because the Yuan will increase the doelarr's perceived strength making the better buying opportunity afterwords?  Or are they waiting for the right time to put it into market, before the unpegging, and if the Yuan appreciates, then we will see gains we have never seen before.  Also, if the Yuan loses value after it is unpegged, does that spell deflation?
