Happy Thanksgiving to all

This just in's picture

Who is such a miserable human being that they would down arrow "Happy Thanksgiving?"


Good Lord.  We are doomed.

    Well, do you really want to wish J. Diamon, blankfein, barnanke and the rest of fraudulent banksters and crooks in washongtin a "H T"...

The market trades on fundamentals and technicals. I learned that from the Scotttrade commercial.

And I learned that on ZeroHedge by an astute commenter named Million Dollar Bonus.

The e-trade baby taught me I'd be a smarter, faster trader if I bought a Smartphone...the little bastard.

Especially if you get the Knight Capital algo app to go along with it.  No one will trade faster!

The John Hancock commercial mocks the worry-warts by saying the sky still isn't falling. I hate that commercial...keep wishing an anvil would come crashing down on all those vapid wives' heads after they 'tut-tut' their husbands.

Hey Fischer, you forget your paper about noise traders (dumb guys like me) and their effect on the market? Maybe for your name you chose unwisely.

Notice how the S&P 500 corrects in a smaller amount and Benny and co step in to 'save the world'. With a converging sequence of progressively smaller drops will even a 1% correction be tolerated?

Looks like higher prices ahead. Thanks for the chart. Ryming

Almost time to celebrate and go shopping!

Now where's my kevlar vest and football helmet?

willwork4food's picture

They won't work. I've got a new HAL9000 Taser.

Don't even think of grabbing that last sale item from meh..

I have my .45 & Kevlar. I'm just the getaway driver, but I like to be prepared.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Bernanke should dress in red for Christmas.

americanspirit's picture

Make that - Bernanke should be drenched in red, pouring out of a hole between his eyes, for Christmas and I'll be with you 100%.

Sounds enchanting but they'd just tag Jamie or get Madoff out of his retirement program.

xtop23's picture

Exactly. The problem is systemic. Although, I'll admit, that I would love to see Bernanke fighting for scraps of food on the floor of a dungeon with a pack of hungry Rottweilers.

Dry Drunk's picture

Red like the devil, although I've never seen diablo, although I have seen some reindeer swimming across a fiord.

No, simple black and white would be sufficient.  Jail suit or bullseye, take your pick.

Is the 12/12 global save going to be a 25% US, EU & Japanese currency devaluation that will happen over the weekend with a Monday bank holiday to boot.  Cool, an extra holiday in December this year!!!

fonzannoon's picture

Why does the US need to devalue? They tell me everything is going great.

This market is well offs it's lows.


Have you seen housing stocks lately?  That whole HP thing was just an accounting misunderstanding.

I know how to break the market. I will go all in. I have the absolute worst luck in the world and the second I go all in, I will be guaranteed to lose everything.

SO who wants to backstop my losses so I can still eat?

AllWorkedUp's picture

Me fucking too. Sometimes I think the market has a particular program set just to attack every holding in my account. I keep telling myself nobody can be this wrong all the time, I could throw fucking darts at 100 different stocks and do better.

Pareto's picture

I have often felt that as soon as my order is filled, the classic digital NYSE tape flashes "Attention: Pareto has just taken 10 out of the money calls on ABX - front month.  Lets stop him out."  Kinda makes you feel paranoid even just talking about it. lol

Will this insanity ever stop?

chump666's picture

Wow, the old school commies would be turning in their graves.  To think that their fixed priced market theory via our insane central banks actually took off in the West.  Rhythms?  History repeating?  Yeah...It ends.
