What Happens When The Market Props Are Gone?

Remember, stocks tanked 16% after QE 1 ended in 2010. So far, we’re already down 6% and QE 2 hasn’t even ended yet! If we match last year’s post-QE correction, the S&P 500 will be at 1,144 soon after QE 2 ends. And given the numerous disasters (economic and financial) occurring in the world today, we could easily drop a lot further than that.

Of the countries that back major currencies the Europe, the US, and Japan all face major debt restructuring issues.

Did Goldman Just Rip Its HNW and Institutional Clients Once Again? Facebook Growth Slows Pre-IPO, Just As We Warned!

Summary: As our research illustrated in explicit detail 5 months ago, Facebook’s growth is slowing after an outrageously rich offering of private shares. Now, I’m sure that GS can put on the ole’ shuck & jive show to garner enough interest to cause an initial IPO pop, but then you are basically gambling on - I mean,,, investing in Goldman’s marketing talents and not the fundamental prospects of Facebook, no?

Graham Summers’ Weekly Market Forecast (Get Defensive Edition)

With public outrage soaring the Fed needs things to cool down before it can announce QE3 or anything like it. The one exception to this would be if the markets enter a full-scale Crisis and stocks close in on 1,000 on the S&P 500.

If you are an ordinary working American and you don't fuck up, you get fired with an unemployment check in the mail; if you are a CEO and you fuck up, you get your golden parachute and a big ass pension; if you are a banksta and you fuck up you get bailed out and a record bonus; if you are a fat White House PhD and you fuck up, you go back to your Harvard nest egg and write bullshit editorials in the Financial Times...STFU already Larry!
