This manipulated market has become so predictable a blind, retarded monkey with a dartboard should have made enough money by now to retire 3 lifetimes over.

From 9:39 am:

Sure enough, at 3:19 pm:

Fiscal pothole on the Highway to Hell?

Blind, retarded monkey?  You mean even Jim Cramer could see this pattern.

I'm not blind.

I'm not retarded.

And I'm not a monkey.

Nevertheless, I'm broke.

What's the deal?

Should just lower it to zero so this kind of tragedy never happens again.

(algos) don't want less spending

Up arrow for you. Politicians are algos themselves.


This thread is a total joke, yet very few understand it. It doesn't matter to politiicians whether or not we go over any cliff. What matters is who benefits and is in control afterwards.

Keep Obama in president

wtf does smaller deal mean?  does it mean less spending cuts and less tax raises, i.e. higher deficit?  That was always the certain outcome.  The can will be kicked.

gjp's picture

ok I read the source.  Only less spending cuts, but tax cuts all expire as scheduled.  No chance in hell that would ever pass the house.  Can't believe even algos would buy that story.

sessinpo's picture

And who cares whether a story is true or not. Algoes don't buy or sell stories.


Let me put it to you another way. If I was selling bomb shelters based upon the idea that the majority of the population was going to die by various reasons on December 21, 2012, do I really care if it is true and actually happens or do I care if there is a market for such an idea in which I can profit?


I posted weeks ago, various scenarios and basically off those scenarios suggested a sell environment. I also noted a Santa Clause rally would occur as it has. Most of this political stuff is just noise. With or without a fiscal cliff deal, the future path is more difficult and will continue to increase in that manner.

Algos are so stupid they even believe the BLS data

So long as that simian has a big enough bank roll to lay on the table, even if has a near guaranteed rake.

"White House Said to Consider Smaller Fiscal Cliff Deal"

That's kind of like my asshole - I just can't see it.

jubber's picture

Really how can the IBEX close at a six month high four and a half hours after it closed, this is total utter bollox, up 300 points on the day...73 of them after the market shut!

Jesus Christ, Helen keller could do less damage on a 6 lane freeway than these dopes are doing to the USA.

Fricking morons can't figure out which end a number 2 comes out of and we are supposed to believe they are capable of doing a comprehensive fiscal deal. 

Pull this leg and it plays jingle bells.

Pull the other one and Ben prints more Benny Bux and shits on you? The jingle bell leg has Ben also printing more Benny Bux, but he pisses on the peons instead.

And maybe its time you realize that a deal is really irrelevant. The US can't pay back its debt and keep its obligations to its social programs, while defending the country. It is mathematically impossible. It's all about who gets the blame and who is in control in the aftermath.


And as usual, it will be the average citizen, you and I, that gets punished and pays for it.

ShrNfr's picture

Another compromise from Obama! He gets everything he wants, and the country can go to hell. Chicago at its best.

"Smaller" fiscal cliff deal ? Does that mean when one goes over the cliff the jagged rocks are not as far away?

They will go over the cliff...BUT they can push the effective date of higher taxes, etc...out to say March 2013. More time to pose and posture and have Lame Stream Media flog Boehner or his replacement with the ubiquitous "fairness" mantra.

Forward, Fairness, or Flagellation !
