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


Good Lord.  We are doomed.

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

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?

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%.

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.

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!!!

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

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?

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.

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

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.
