This is bullish though right?
This means Fukushima Daiichi has been successfully fixed with some Quikrete and some chicken wire.
Also, the Japanese National Debt was slashed from 214% of GDP to 213.999999999997% of GDP, pending revisions.
They are free to print another quadrillion yen now.
Could be a result of revelations that Japanese across the entire country have been eating radioactive beef for months:
Or maybe that radioactive ash is being collected in Tokyo:
Or maybe that the Fukushima "Contaminated Water Filtration System" is on the brink of catastrophic failure which will eventually result in the poisoning of the ocean along the entire Japanese coastline.
OR it could be the revelation that the technology does not exist today to remove the melted fuel from the bottom of these reactors, and that long term entombment and continued poisoning of Japan is inevitable.
We're even getting a little of the action in peaches!

Down here in South Florida, at the Condo-minium we use Bubble Gum & Duct Tape, only thing holding this place together! Y'all oughta try it some time, ya' hea?
I always knew that there had to have been a nuclear accident somewhere in South Florida sometime ago, probably when Schnellenberger took over the Miami Hurricanes Football team.
The above post proves it.
HAH!! People who live in vitrified houses shouldn't throw rocks, Jeb!
Thanx, Jack -
Speaking of Jeb!, we're already getting a preview of the mud slinging to come. When Nancy "Her-eyes-seem-to-follow-you-everywhere" Pelosi was stunned the other day when Obama stated he would accept SocSec cuts ("But..That's our Strategy for the Election..."), I was reminded of (Put your right hand on your heart, get misty eyed and look to Heaven) Lawton Chiles and his race against Jeb! for the Senate a few years back.
A few days before the election, Saint Lawton hired a phone bank to call all the SocSec Seniors and tell them, "Thay's gon slyce yer Soshul Secur'ty!!!" The tactic (by concensus) worked. After the election, Saint Lawton apologized - sorta' - and did another term in the Senate. Just a little ofal soiled Saint Lawton's pant leg.
Meanwhile, George W., the younger, was running against Anne Richards (I believe) and was supposed to lose. So: Jeb! was supposed to win and springboard to the Presidency and lost, GW won and became the President.
PS: This election that's coming may be one of the lowest, smarmiest mud slinging elections in history. There are pigs alive today who would not lie in the filth that's coming.
Yeah, I wonder who let the new guy near the keyboard.
was it Waddell, or Reed?
This is great for Japanese exports as long as no one checks the products for radiation.
Just like your avatar............
gravity is a harsh mistress
Dude, you said a mouthful...oh, wait...
Efficient markets, bitchez
Flash Crash! What a feeling......
Damn you for putting that song in my head!
HFT is the crystal meth of the markets. Won't stop until the consumer bites the bullet. Don't expect our 'regulators' to end the shenanigans, they are on the take.
Jim Carey crystal meth tribute:
Check GBP also
This is what I call the "False Flag Break". A deceptive move of the markets, scaring the longs out of their position before continuing upward. The PTB HBB crew does everything they can to rack the retail over the coals. And they collude through direct phone conversation, pit talk, and complicity of quant programs. Fair? No. Legal, No? The way it is? Yes.
I remain long GBP
Remember this is expiry week, more fireworks tomorrow and usually a slow down of volatility into Thurs Fri
When the ¥ flash crashes, ppl listen.
Take Profit hunting.
I had a small position before this crash and now gobbled up some more.
Carry trade moving again?
Not too big on conspiracy theories unless it was Bush/Cheney. But why aren't we doing more to confront the lack of regulation that occurred under them and Clinton. So far we are batting about .165.
If you want to talk about lack of regulation ask Ted Butler. Political parties may change, but policies do not. If you see someone on TV you can be certain they don't make any decisions. It defeats the purpose of being in control if you are on the hook with the public.
It takes a bald headed bankster to get a dirty job done !
Yeah where is that traitorous leech Hank Paulson when you need him?
Where's the duct tape?
It's sitting on the shelf with the bailing wire.
And next to that 860 million dollar batch of H1N1 'Avian Flu' Immunizations, that don't work, bought from Gilead Science (Rumsfeld used to be their CEO...huh).
And them scanner thingymebobs in the airports that Chertnoff sold.
And finding that $3.2 trillion gone "missing" at the Pentagon? (Lotta corners that coulda disappeared into.)
What's a trillion or so difference between criminal friends.
Silverstein had...what...8 separate policies of insurance on WTC 1 and 2?
And whatever did happen to the somewhat important CIA, DoD, IRS and other government records 'lost' on that day?
I know...I know...crazy talk.
Why? Are you on a plane?
was that a conkers bad fur day reference? because if it was, that is the most obscure reference i have ever come across. If i am mistaken, i apologize for my insanity.
Something wrong, something not quite right.
You don't know what it is, but it's there -- like a splinter in your mind.
What's the topic? I forget.
Hacking, techno, white rabbits, red pills, batteries, Skynet.
Like, uh I was uh getting lost there.Thanks.... . . . . . . . .. . . . . . . .
Banksters need to give sheeple the illusion that markets are really not coming unglued. They need to show that AUD, NZD - risk based currencies are not crashing. By killing the USD, it seems that AUD/USD and NZD/USD are moving higher. We just lose more purchasing power here in the good ole USA.
US$ index is at its highest level since April, and AUD is dead middle of the range for the last 4 months. what is more, you need to have less purchasing power in the USA - the trade deficit blew out 15% last month, and the economy is rooted. so a weaker currency is required to foster exports, curb imports, and encourage foreigners with cash to buy your assets. that is why we have floating currencies, remember?
god, here we go again...
this is exactly the same circumstances as the 'last' such move: it has occurred a few minutes after interbank close in NY. ie when there is minimum liquidity in the fx market. it doesnt mean anything, and it isnt a problem for anyone unless of course they sell out a long position at the low. as it was only down there for a few minutes, i daresay that did not happen, and JPY is almost back where it started. talk it up!
FX markets are hard to manipulate, how the fuck they always bring it down?
