Who appointed this guy Chief A$$HoLe?
But be careful what you wish for: what we may get could be worse than what we have.
Gold futures saw a massive $1.5 billion liquidation in one minute yesterday which had all the hallmarks of a "non profit" liquidation - a large seller trying to manipulate gold futures lower rather than maximise profits.
The US equity market refuses to copycat its Canadian cousin...
"what goes up in a linear low-volume rampapalooza, comes down in a parabolic high volume dumpfest..."
It needs to crash harder so Obama gets kicked out and the truth about Benghazi and Fast and Furious comes out.
+1 for the hope of truth, realistic or not.
.....and it's gone!
So when are the companies that were suppose to report on Monday and Tuesday report their earnings?
I haven't seen ANYTHING, zero nada, nothing, zlich, zip, squat, bubkis...just rain reports. No quarterly reports. I'm hoping this gets remedied, hedge fund managers better hope so to or their Muppets are going to another show.
I'll hope to that.
OT: best pics of keynesian wet dream destruction:
Mean while back in Ireland things are going from bad to much much worse:
He needs some alone time with our Navy Seals.
Better disarm them first.
I know a couple old seals. Go ahead - disarm them. Those fuckers are hard. They don't need weapons.
Guaranteed....against his skinny ass they wouldn't even need their hands.
You've got that right. Some years ago in a rural village saw a retired spec ops guy in his 40s grab a loudmouth by the windpipe--shut him up real fast: pressure on the carotid arteries is disconcerting. Still remember those eyes, both sets: cold ones and wide open ones. No permanent damage and not a word spoken, just a few moments of silent communication.
They still can break his chicken neck.
"He needs some alone time with our Navy Seals."
Before or after he turns them all queer?
And in four years Romney gets the boot for Hill and the truth about Iran and whatever false flag he uses comes out. Then four years after that Hill gets the boot and Jeb comes in....
On and on and on and on.....
Well maybe as it gets worse and worse and scandals come out again and again, the sheeple that still votes will realize that voting for the two big parties is a waste of time??
The only way to win this war peacefully is by making sure the government is not seen as legitimate by the vast majority of Americans.... any other way, there will be lots of blood flowing in the streets.
Hope in one hand and have a NYFR banker load up your vault with gold and see which fills up first.
Oh wait, that doesn't work as an analogy does it....
Well you know, the US military could go all Ataturk on the US government's ass and it would be fine by me.
The sheeple are never ever ever going to do shit. They are so fat and docile like Hindu cows. Nobody thinks for themselves, nobody has any principles or values. American men are emasculated feminist pets. Nobody is going to fight, there will be no blood in the streets. One of Obamas accomplishments is gay rights. The absurdity of it all is mind numbing.
Do you ever wonder if we all died a decade ago when the sun exploded and we've been existing in BizarroWorld hell ever since? Maybe it's just me.
You and Philip K. Dick.
Living the illusion of illusion... rich... my sheep are eclectic.
Have you ever read Ubik?
I wouldn't say this to anybody but you, but I often have a profound sense that the world isn't exactly what it seems. In the West, this is typically viewed as a symptom of depersonalization disorder.
But then I also don't believe that the stock market, or unemployment numbers, or GM sales figures reflect economic reality, and that's viewed as crazy, too.
Life's a bubble.
Matt Bracken on Benghazi:
Great post, thanks for the links...
Also I think the market needs to find a more solid floor. Elections and the same technical factors so indicate. This is a difficult situation pra initiate a short position and is soon to start a long position. Waiting is the way, but, eye, two options are possible.
So, the market could go either direction, ergo, sit on the sidelines? I am fucking amazed by this analysis.
In truth this is one of those wobbling on the fence points that could move either way. Bonds seem to have chosen their path though.
And so the crash starts
"bulls and bears make money. Pigs get Sandy." energy prices are falling/collapsing again. From whence the bid? The Fed is actually working against you but flattening the yield curve and standing in the way of "a natural purge" of worthless assets. So you get a natural diaster instead...six of one half dozen of the other. Obviously if your a bull and trading you want to buy on any significant dip between now and election day. the Government spigot is WIDE open. But if must be something that is CHEAP. I would argue distressed debt...I think the mutual fund is Oaktree that just started a fund dedicated to said activity.
The RMB is now 6.2372 ... another high Vs the Ben confetti from Washington.
My RMB account at bank of China on Madison Ave. is very happy!
Do I have to pay Capital Gains on currency arbitrage?
I know interest, 0.1% is the only income reported in a 1099 but, is the 5% gain on arbitrage reported?
Take off, eh!
BTFD is so yesterday.
Yes, now it is eat the fucking rat shit.
Actually some New Yorkers are going to have that opportunity....there are millions of dead rats in all those nooks and cranies...that will start to smell soon....and its going to stink...
It's still early, give it some time.
The Old King is dead! Long live the King!
RAH RAH RAH
Shake your RAH RAH
Romney and Nentayahu were behind the Libya attacks.
Ah, yes, the old Month-Early-October-Surprise trick. Gets 'em every time.
We will transmit information to Vladimir.
Chris Matthews is that you?
They'll have more flexibility after the election .... tell Vlad !
I'll check back at 3:59 pm and see if the Amazing Kevin and his ramptastic powers of illusion make an appearance.
Ramptastic! Loves it. I guess this makes Kevin Henry Captain Ramptastic?
The bottom is in at 1400, the fed has billions of your dollars at their disposal to support it there. The question is how high will it go? Back to September's highs or to infinity and beyond? IMHO.
Hey well go put all your own money on it then.
