Dow Jones Industrial Average Celebrates "Four More Years" With Biggest Drop In A Year

Tyler Durden's picture


It seems like only last night everyone was celebrating more hope, if not much change. Now comes the hangover. The Dow Jones intraday drop is now 2.23% (and rising), greater than the biggest drop so far in 2012 record on June 1. The last time the market plunged as much: literally one year ago, or November 9, 2011. Sadly, it appears that one can't have their Dow Jones Industrial Average and redistribute it too.

And if the surge in vol the last time we had moves of this magnitude is any indication, we can solmenly say that the world's most overrated job for the next 2 months (and 4 years) will be the Chief Redemption Officer, at any hedge fund.


and the S&P futures are at a critical level...below Draghi's Elbow...

Seeing this as a special message of "fuck you" to Obama, I can't help but feel it's my patriotic duty to participate.  Don't get me wrong, I'd do the same for Romney, but Obama's just that much douchier which makes it even more satisfying.  What a great day in the (fake) market!

... special message of "fuck you" to Obama ...

I thought it was long expected that the market was being artificially propped up to help Obama get re-elected.  And, equally expected, if Obama was re-elected, the market would be allowed to seek true price discoverey beginning the day after the election.  To the extent that such analysis was/is true, how can the market being allowed to seek its true level be a "fuck you" to Obama?

Seeing this as a special message to Obama:

You may be right.  Or it could just be some profit taking after the big Market runup for several months prior to the election.

The Banker Boys are happy regardless.  Guaranteed 4 more years of tweaking the ponzi and scamming what is left of the middle class.

Look for a big runup at the end of this week or the start of next week when the algos mysteriously change moods and find something to be happy about.

Wait! What happened to gold rising to $5000 if Obama wins? Did I miss something? Oh, that's right. All the markets are rigged but somehow you all believe the gold market will act on natural forces. Silly bastards! If gold is ever valued at >$10,000 an ounce, there won't be any organized market to trade it. You will be buying beans from a guy by candlelight and settling up with a small scale. Be careful what you wish for!

We may be in for a wild ride. As a libertarian type conservative I think I might advise Boehner and the Republican Congress to let everything Obama wants to sail through...budgets, social policies, new government agencies, income redistribution, tax increases. Do it all. Watch the consequences. Take the fall. Then nominate a true conservative in 2016 when we are in the Ayn Rand armageddon. Stay away from these milktoast moderate centrist no core belief types like Romney and McCain...or even G. Bush.

Exactly.  This is a minor temper tantrum by a bunch of old men who behave like children.  All this cash is flowing directly into bonds.  As the Fed continues their rampant destruction of the dollar, the whiny bitches will run for equities again.

Of course, if were a hopeful man, I would say that this is the banks getting protective because they fear Obama will be gunning for them after they backed Mittens.  But realistically this administration is about as likely to take any action against the criminals on Wall Street as Mitt's would've been.

There are also many more takers than there are producers.  They, too, also vote overwhelmingly democratic.

It's not that we are bigots.  We are simply the minority now.  This is now a nation of democrats.  Collapse is imminent.... of course, the rich will be gone by then.  You get what you vote for.

Too late - it's been run over and served up for dinner at the Roadkill Grill. I hear it was grazing on hopium at the time.

You know what I was pretty dissapointed (not surprised however) at Mitt's loss last night. 


But I got really pissed when I realized I'd have to hear about her and her vactions for another 4 fucking years.

This is the 1% having a hissy fit because their party lost the election. Typical sore losers - they are going for MAD because they lost to the people.

There was no quesiton of winning your ignorant moron. The people are the ones who really lost. Lost their fucking minds voting for either of those tools. The last 12 years? The indictment, trial, closing arguments, and sentencing of an idiotic, complacent, servile, greedy, lazy, muppetized population. The next 12 years? The punishment due.

More taxes and fees and increased preimiums for everyone.

Businesses to fire more people and hire part-timers so they don't have to pay health insurance.

People who can't afford it getting "fined" (taxed) to supplement the sick-care industry.

More food stamps, more SS disability, more downsizing of households, contraction will abound.

A fall in the value of the markets doesn't necessarily mean cashing out.  It reflects a revaluation of the companies in the market.  Investors realize that obamao is anti business, anti economy, and businesses will be financially impacted by that.  The drop in the market represents people's expectations of a weakening economy, and thus they are willing to pay less for a share in the company.

They may also be cashing out.  They certainly should.  The excise tax will be raised from 14% to 40% under democrats.  They had better sell now, or they will lose an enormous amount of money.

There are better places to be.  Primarily commodities.  The value of the dollar plummeted after HIS reelection.  It would be wise to divest of anything connected to the dollar (bonds or equities), and move to something that will retain value independent of the currency.  That's what people do in countries suffering from currency collapse.  Look at Iran. The people trade their currency for dollars or metals as soon as they get it.  And, when they need to, they trade back in.  That way, they have preserved the value of money while the currency has depreciated.

This country won't last another 4 years.  Collapse is imminent.  I'd suggest you divest of dollars and batten down the hatches.  We're gonna make Greece look like Shangri La

People that are actual "goldbugs" view their holdings as a store of wealth, and truly don't give a shit about the convertibility of their holdings into USD or any other paper currency.  

For those who were merely speculating in short term price movements, gold is still doing a hell of a lot better than stocks.  Which is to be expected, gold did a hell of a lot better than stocks during the last crash.
