Forget QE3, not going to happen in the form you equity crackheads expect in the form of free Hefty bags of crack rocks from Ben. Its over, and youve been warned so dont cry when equities go cold turkey.

I've been saying QE3 won't happen for months; but I've noticed more normalcy bias on ZH Blog than on Wall Street or Main Street. The QE3 Gods wil not deliver!
Next bubble will be in PMs...a 'Real'bubble this time, not a rumour. They'll let it inflate, then collapse. That'll cause havoc in Asia and Europe.

The deregulation of the deregulation is already being done.

You think the banks are going to let their balance sheets be deflated?

As opposed to what?  You think they are going to stand by and watch their assets get inflated away into irrelevance?  Remember their assets equal their debts, thanks to Luca Pacioli.  I mean just curious here.  I think what will be likely is that you and I will continue to get screwed and the moment there is a let up in the ass ripping they will just fob a few trillion more on the bankers.  If it seems to have gone a bit quiet or not hurt quite as much for a while it is only because they are reaching for more lube.

the "Fannie/Fred go nuclear" option via "taking all the real estate allegedly owned by the banks and financial institutions and governments" and marking THAT to market (with clean title.)  Perhaps this is what Obama has meant by "excessive lobbying"?  I must say in this sense i agree with The Morgan on this one:  "fly in on lear jet, discuss, leave."  perhaps a little chat with the media on his way out and he would be a true Morgan indeed.  Of course the media should want to talk to him first....

I tweeted this earlier today as well. Gasoline up 25 cents in 3 days. So much for THAT consumer tailwind.

Nice post on gold/silver by Martenson. Been accumulating about 2 years with similar rationale. Didn't know supply growth so constricted. More upside Than I thought.

I’m bored so here is a thought for the astute minds on ZH,

Act I àrelease stock from SPR (miniscule) -->bring down price-->

ActIIà buy back 100X volume at reduced price--> reload for the next shock and awe pre election

Act IIIà firm up $$ crash oil Obam's handler are happy in 2012.

It may not be just China stocking up at these low prices you know.. you a lot of strange acronyms ESF, GS JPM.. I don’t know what they mean..

Crude should at VERY least be at $112 a barrel; more at high $120s. Given global conditions etc.

There's an over abundance of crude oil on the market hence the need to store it off shore in tankers. On top of that, the Strategic Petroleum Reserve is being tapped to drive home the over abundance and I'm not sure anyone knows why the SPR is being tapped but it could be because the oil is going stale and needs to be used right away.

Stale? I thought it took a couple million years to make oil. Hopefully Obama checked the Born On Date before releasing it.

.......because the oil is going stale and needs to be used right away.

Yup! Like fine vintage wine, once the cork is popped and the pressure is released it's use it or lose it.

I can only assume this "oil is going stale" comment is snark. Please, tell me it is snark.

Just keep telling the masses that the oil is going stale and they'll understand.

Oil doesn't go stale, it has a rather long shelf life.  In fact, like good wine, it gets better with age. (As long as it is stored properly, e.g. an underground salt dome)  You are thinking of refined petroleum products, such as gasoline.  They do go "stale" if not stored properly.  Actually, what happens is the lighter, more volatile molecules evaporate and the heavier stuff reacts with water.

Let's audit the SPR.  Drop the Supreme Court of Indiana in the caverns.  If they all drown, there is oil.  If they don't drown just leave them there each with a pocket constitution which they can eat page by page as they each starve to death.

The Fed chairman is working for the Lucifer worshiping Illuminati, who use the strategy of diversion to get away with all the bad stuff they do.   In reality it us (including all the Jewish people) vs them (the evil worshiping Oligarchy).

The Illuminati don't worship Lucifer. To quote a prominent Illuminatus:

"I don't worship Satan. Satan worships me."

Or, to use a book title, it's "Power vs. Market". And the powerful blame the market, while the sheeple baaah on cue. Previously, the price of oil was self-limiting, as when the price got sufficiently high, new and improved sources appeared. Now, people hope that windmills, solar power, and (revived for the occasion) cold fusion will save the day. The oligarchs laugh, until the sheeple get their pitchforks upon learning it's no First Circle for them. Those oligarchs who have earned Ninth Circle status may find it arriving early this cycle, as the can reached the end of the road.
