The rats are jumping ship.
Actually, we're the rats and we'll go down with the ship.
It's the captain and the senior crew who are leaving, and in a guilded lifeboat with all the food, all the water and the contents of the ship's safe.
Shades of the Titanic -- which ended 'not well' too.
thanks TD for the numbers, cant wait for the scheduled crash in all asset classes.
Can anyone direct me where to find this information database?
The only ratio I'm waiting for is 10:1
thats what she said.
(sorry i couldn't resist)
Holding cash, like PIMCO. What's about to happen?
no matter how many times I see it, I'm amazed at how they can levetate the market on absolutely no volume.
Actually, I think it makes it easier.
In the absence of real volume and true conviction, the Atari 100's can just ping-pong ever increasing bids against each other with minimal friction.
You know how to get the highest score in Donkey Kong? When all the Gorillas leave the room tired and exasperated.
Got it (at least here) T.G. Bots vs. bots.
Furthermore, corporate buybacks are more influential on stock price than insider buying/selling (in most cases). 2010 was a near record year for corporate buybacks, and, as of March 2011, corporate buybacks were up over 50% from 2010.
So while insider selling tells one story, corporate buybacks tell quite another.
Industry is buying all the crap their own chieftains are selling That's an even scarier scenario.
Gave up on the doe eyed innocent guy and now you are savvy investment guy. Guessing there was a shift change at the troll station today.
Glad I'm not the only one that noticed this!
Did your coinguy tell you that Dungslinger?
...let's see, we'll use the shareholders cash to prop up our stock so we can exercise our options and then sell into the market...
Front running, clearly makes market manipulation fixing a snap. You can swap share ownership between your downtown and uptown offices faster than any middlemen can intercept the trades. All at no commission.
Me aburro del mercado siempre alcista.
Im bored of eternal permabullishment.
Tyler as u may know much better than me, the Equity Cash vs Futures Ratio is close to lowest levels in the range.
All this market is been driven by Options.....Flight to Quality coming .
And for those of us with some cash still on the sidelines, precisely what is the "quality" you speak of?
Bearish Beta stocks
*Long US financials vs EUR financials
*Short Commodities .- Using SCO
*Short Oil (till 85-90)
* Long TLT (expecting less 1yr inflation) -
Long TLT/Short DOW
* Long Belgian CDS 2,5 and 10yrs
* Long Spanish CDS 5 & 10 yrs
SP back to 1250-1285 next two months.
*Long USD vs MultiCrosses.
Last round, 'quality' = UST
This round, physical gold
The ratio of dollars to silver will be infinity to 1
Got another delivery of physical silver today - ha ha ha
Look like about 20% of S&P 500 stocks are being sold. No small feat but I guess it's bonus time.
sorry but im new. is there any position disclosure on ZH? i can find a model portfolio anywhere in the links. thanks.
Just from reading comments, I think the typical ZH portfolio is 99.98% physical silver, 0.01% physical gold. Remainder in Bernanke Futures.
ah. thanks alex. not a bad portfolio i must say. i would replaced the Bernanke Futures with physical Bernanke (locked up in the woodshed like the gimp). I would perhaps increase the gold position and add an apartment building or 5 in vegas.
+1 for "Physical Bernanke" as icky as that may sound.
Vegas is a walking ghost town, no more potable water in the next 5-10 years,
Oh please, there is infinite clean water on this planet just like there is infinite energy.
LOL there Alex!
30% Physical silver
22% stored food/seeds
15% stored water/gas
10% farm animals
3% physical gold
Yeah, pretty close, but you missed my silver miners (NYSE:SIL) and that some of my physical silver is held by Eric Sprott in a country with a conservative government (NYSE:PSLV). I plan to realocate when I figure out how to short my mortgage ;) .
let's simplify that. 50% gold and 50% lead, and the rest comes your way.
Pirates of the suburbs coming to your town.
Exiting before the QE3 delay...?
So, what about 565?
That would have to be bullish, wouldn't it?
Completly the opposite, its a typical bearish divergence...
Equity Indexes Up.....Insider sell to buy ratio up..and more with this wild movement....
But who cares, this never drops hardly , till some day happens.¡
This made no difference over the last 6 months so why should it now?
End of QE2
Since Sept 2010
US has been living thanks QE2 -Pomo ammonition.
Back to reality, US is not strong as markets are telling, but charts are the charts...
So, $32 billion in 3-year notes auctioned today. Did we breach the debt ceiling?
Whatever one can say about the Bernank/Obamao Ponzi system, it really takes balls of steel to be over thre with the PLA negotiating on Trade while actually being in technical default.
Its all liquidity driven and options are limited due to ZIRP and the Fed. Trying to make sense of a 'non free' market can be hazardous to your (w)health.
The stock market is a great place to invest - think of all those consumers going out to spend their freshly printed dollars on Western made goods.
And here to your left we have one aspect of hyperinflation. Insiders sell forcing the Bernanke to print more money to buy them up to keep the ponzi going so that insiders are incentivized to print more options to sell to the Bernanke etc etc.
If they could only bring the scheme to the next level, talk of a debt target ceiling would be irrelevant.
How come Sprott's not on the list?
but they are spending our money like its going out of style via M&A
Naw, ZH investors hold all sorts of things besides silver and gold. You forgot bullets, tins of meat, and nylons, so our ladies can look fine on the back of our ride as we tool along through the nuke blasted desert.
from where did you source this?
bloomberg or thomson reuters?
