Adding Insult To Rocket Attacks, Bank of Israel Now Underwater On Its Apple Position

Tyler Durden's picture





 

It was all going so well, first name terms with Obama and AAPL up 30% from where you bought it... a mere two months later and the Bank of Israel is now underwater on their AAPL shares and about to print bullets. We noted in early March what a ridiculous ponzi this was all becoming when the Bank of Israel announced its purchase of US equity positions including AAPL. In retrospect it is so gratifying to gloat at the self-confirming bias that enabled their reserve managers to buy on the way up as the stock that can do no wrong lifted all boats. Actually, it is easy to gloat in any 'spect'. We can only assume that Bernanke's Bat-phone is ringing off the hook this afternoon to 'get back to work' and come to the aid of his Bank of Israel mentor.

There are also some very lumpy volumes around this level historically... more than a few hedgies chewing on their nails here we suspect.

When fractional reserve central banks (that get their money for nothing & chicks for free) "get in on the equity action," you'll never get a clearer red flag, so don't be a putz, okay?

Oy Vey!

In other news that's widely ignored, Argentina (beautiful country, beautiful people, economic basket case) is our own little Portugal in the Western Hemisphere, and is literally on the brink of total economic implosion.

Watch out for the sequential "they all fall down" action in South America, bitchez. Even the country that put the B in BRICs won't be immune when the fallout begins in earnest.

This goes to show why you should always manage your risk by diversifying into other blue chip stocks and risk free US treasuries. Smarter investors can also eliminate risk using modern portfolio theory by inferring future correlations from past correlations. In any case, risk needs to be managed properly, even by central banks. Our Federal Reserve has diversified across mortgage backed securities, foreign currency swaps and US treasuries, creating a tactical portfolio designed to both underpin the stability of the global economy and make a profit for the treasury in the process.

Yes, good point. I'm sure once one adds in all the federal AND state direct transfers to citizens, the real size of the impoverished in America is far higher than the official or official-alt statistics bear out.

America, with a rapidly shrinking middle class, a rapidly growing McClass, and quickly becoming a land of have & have-nots.

“Our Federal Reserve has diversified across mortgage backed securities”...

Who's this "Our" federal reserve you speak of?  And what is this “diversification” you place such confidence in?

The federal reserve I know here in the US is owned by private sector financial institutions that will be the beneficiaries of their employee, Ben, whose committed to reconveying frn 1 million a minute from now on of US mortgage paper into their possession and out of the individual state's AG grasp thus preventing them from being able to prosecute them for their felonious underwriting practices.

This drop is affecting AAPL many investors, Hedge Funds, Mutual Funds and Central Banks. It is very likely that there are pressures to "intervene" in the market to arrest the fall. Moreover, currently the market is already oversold. I think the most difficult is presented to medium term. That is, the question is if the market recovery (which could start tomorrow or in the following days), will be able to reach a new high. If it does not, we're in trouble. The market may drop significantly.

Good point Centerline.  I wonder too how many will be wiped out trying to trade this mess.  I know, let's ask Galbraith:

 

John Kenneth Galbraith, author of 1929 - The Great Crash, described the pattern of the 1929-1932 bear market as follows:


'The worst continued to worsen. What looked one day like the end proved on the next day to have been only the beginning. Nothing could have been more ingeniously designed to maximize the suffering, and also to insure that as few people as possible escape the common misfortune. The fortunate speculator who had funds to answer the first margin call presently got another and equally urgent one, and if he met that there would still be another. In the end all the money he had was extracted from him and lost.  The man with the smart money, who was safely out of the market when the first crash came, naturally went back in to pick up bargains. The bargains then suffered a ruinous fall. Even the man who waited for volume of trading to return to normal and saw Wall Street become as placid as a produce market, and who then bought common stocks would see their value drop to a third or a fourth of the purchase price in the next 24 months. The Coolidge bull market was a remarkable phenomenon. The ruthlessness of its liquidation was, in its own way, equally remarkable.

The Swiss National Bank (SNB) has started to "diversify" 10% it's fx reserves into (get this) "passive stock index investments". They're replicating different national stock indexes on their own. That led them to become a major shareholder in Nokia, with a position large enough to be reportable. Stupidity at it's best.

Except you , who is eager as usual to point out that something is rotten in the little kingdom of Israel ( remember Hamlet right ?) . Actually you  are mixing AAPL  shares with rocket attacks : Under what logical pretence ? Then you are kindly wording this AAPL purchase as " Insults ". iT IS PRETTY OBVIOUS , MR DURDEN, YOU ARE LOOKING FOR A SMEARING ISRAEL BANNER . AND YOU FOUND IT (as usual ). Far from being a moron, you are showing great analytical abilities in your financial-economic field, then you add to your palmares those funny, soul-searching, skin-bruising banners or articles on the many devilish aspects of Israel. I suggest you to follow a relaxing breathing method ( mantra style very simple ) uttering a few yiddish idioms , then maybe your fantasy and smearing attempts at Israel will slowly halt and leave your mind for something closer to honest thinking.

I thought Israel/Jews controlled the financial markets.  I guess that this is one pitch that we missed on.

Antichrist takes a byte on the other side of Apple 666, sings Rubber Biscuit, wears a flapjacket and still goes hungry. Look out bitchez, heel bruiser is looking to dine and dash everybody's ass now. Lame Duck and Cover soup for you.

I met someone who positioned themselves nicely in the financial sense on the way up to the current precipice. Unfortunately they think "big drops = big bargains". Eternal optimist, born post-depression era.
