    Here’s a question that might have you pondering: Is gold a commodity? More importantly, are we doing a disservice to the gold industry by calling gold a commodity? These may sound like silly...

Equities Set To Open With Biggest Gap-Down In 3 Months

Tyler Durden's picture


S&P futures are trading down around 18 points in the pre-day-session market. This would be the largest gap-down day in three months, and only the third largest gap-down open in 2012. The market has broken to its lowest since QEtc was announced and retraced more than half of the Draghi 'Believe' moment spike...

The lower paneil is the distance from previous close to current open...


as the market looks set to open half way up the Draghi spike...

Cramer just said he likes Berkshire because of their insurance and housing business.

I think I'll short them...because of their insurance and housing business.

Big gap down at the open?


Not to worry.  We have people paid to fix that sort of thing.  I'm sure they'll get on it right away and have things nice and green before the close.

Gold is looking pretty jerky too, after last night's moves:

gold is still in lock step with equities. but it seems to be firming up. silver looks good. the dislocation is coming. maybe tomorrow.

why any hedge fund etc with real gains in 2012 would be sticking around in this market is beyond me. so much for chasing performance.

Bernanke just handed PIMCO 23 billion USD last month for MBS's. They're waiting for more of their digitalized 0000000$. 40 billion a month indefinately to be spent on market trash is too tempting to walk away from.

I hear ya Sloane. I think (who knows) that Pimco is going down the commodities and real assets road with that money. I meant anyone who owns the SPX, why stick around and be greedy? Lock in those gains.

P.S. I believe everything depends on the Euro. As the Euro weakens, the dollar strengthens, stock prices go lower and vice versa.

The iPad mini is being announced so that gives Apple at least 10 million units to book profit on now. Forward profit booking, AAPL's best friend.

Nobody else finds it fishy that Apple always seems to announce products right before they report?

"Market", where is this "market" they speak of?  I see insolvent but politically connected institutions everywhere trying to meet those fix-rate obligations on the retirement promises of millions of voters.  In the meantime, those providing useful and productive labor starve.  -  FAIL

LG has just confirmed they are producing the next flagship Nexus phone. Since Apple hasn't gone patent troll crazy on LG, I guess that is bullish for Google.

Or enough days have passed that the goalseeking algos have taken over again, ready to send Google to all time highs. Just like after Apple's miss.

When you see ticker after ticker of YTD gains of 68%, 145%, 235% in way too many stocks, it is pretty easy to see that most of those stocks need to be chopped in half, at least.

2012 has been a 1999 market without a real economy backing it up. When a homebuilder stock can double, even though actual home completions have barely budged, you have entered the Twilight Zone.

I'm waiting for a black and white flying door to open with a laughing floating Bernanke head on the other side.
