AAPL, Market Go Vertical On House Conference Call News

Tyler Durden's picture





 

It appears that our expectation for a 3:35 pm rumor was some 45 minutes too late. No sooner than headlines crossed the wires that:

  • *U.S. HOUSE SAID TO PLAN 6:30 P.M. SESSION ON DEC. 30
  • *REPUBLICAN AIDE REPORTS FROM HOUSE MEMBERS' CONFERENCE CALL

then stocks ramped instantly to their VWAPs and beyond... efficient markets? whocouldanode? This way at least, when nothing happens on Sunday night, as nothing will (as it comes three days before Boehner's reelection), the flashbacks to the TARP 1 vote will be front and center, but the good news is that the downside will be limited by the limit down barrier in ES.

S&P 500 futures...

 

AAPL...

I keep asking myself when are we taking these piggies to the market? Why do we keep feeding Congress piggies when they're so useless. I'm all for a cut in spending. Disolve the entire herd of pigs in DC and on Wall Street and see how far we can get with our hard earned incomes. The barn is too full and we need to make some room. The Wall Street breed of pigs is scamming the population out of their money and the DC pigs are aiding and abeting the Wall Street pigs in the process because it benefits them. Two breeds of pigs have taken over the barn and everyone else is suffering. A good cleanse and culling of the herd is long overdue.

They're cutting support to about 2 million unemployed instantly. Nobody cares. Keep these 2 million on the trough and reduce the number of fat pigs. A whole lot of lean and mean piggies can survive on the same rations we're feeding to the fat pigs.

It's public record somewhere, just look it up.  If they've built an option around whatever they wanted to, there should be a tonne of paper work associated with it.  Always paper work somewhere on any financial offering.  You would need to find out who they bank with, that can be obtained with a looksie at where their children live.  Most of these families get involved with their childrens finances/home purchases and act as the second signature to obtain the best rate for their kids using their credit and name to do so.  That should give you the bank.

Start sniffing around from there.

Not so sure about that CPL, unless you and I understand it differently.  I think the reference was to buying equity options with illegal information.  If I was a Congressman and I wanted to unethically buy S&P calls off of this info (repetitive terms I know; Congressman and unethical), I would do it through my brokerage firm (or some shadow account) neither of which would have anything to do with my local bank or where my kids live. 

If someone wanted to sniff, I would seek the brokerage firm of the Congressperson (if I knew it) and maybe someone who works there.  It bothers me how easily and with little whim the customer service people at my brokerage house look into my account.  If I had a friend on the inside... ooooohhh boooy!!!

Hey guys and gals, don't forget, SEC regs concerning trading on non-public material inside information does not apply to our August Honorable Public Servants in the Congress.

What makes you think we are not living in hell already? 

It reminds me of an episode of 'The Outer Limits' in which a ship of humans is frantically trying to escape a hoard of alien invaders who require human hosts to survive.  The humans make a narrow escape from their horrific demise; only to find out at the end that they were indeed overrun and subdued and the aliens injected them with a chemical which allowed them to dream that they actually escaped.

How much? The answer is, one metric shit-ton of money. But since insider trader is 100% legal for members of Congress, you can't say they are breaking any laws. All they are doing is taking advantage of their position to better themselves at the expense of the taxpayer.

Average people are starting to take notice, though. E.g. My girlfriend's mother (a baby boomer) was here over Christmas, and she said she was thinking about getting out of the stock market entirely because something didn't feel right, and she's afraid of losing her life savings. This woman plays everything by the book and is very pro establishment. If these types follow intuition and start cashing out of the casino...

Stocks are overpriced but that will correct through the next few earning seasons. I still think this deflationary cycle puts the DOW at 8500 at some point. That seems fair market value given the economic climate and without the FED enabling leverage/speculation.

WhiteNight123129's picture

Let us put that way, the 30 years yield is way to low in relation to inflation expectations. Don t know which way it will play out though, if this is the inflation expectation which normalize against TSY (S&P bearish, Gold so-so, TSY slightly up), or inflation expectations which keep rising (Treasuries bearish, Gold bullish), or the Treasuries market rallies like mad on the upside while inflation expectation stay at 2.55% (TSY would risk a pullback, Gold would get very volatile on the upside).

I do not know the resolution, but I would go short treasuries, short overpriced consumer discreationary US, long selective China stocks, Long Gold, short some Brazilian consumption stocks (hedge against long equities China).

It would have bounced even without that. If not today, it would have bounced tomorrow, or Monday.

It can't drop. It's impossible to drop. Since Primary Dealers basically own everything at this point, their only option is to keep selling to each other until the order comes to create a black hole underneath.

It's this simple.

The order will come when the economy will use the last drops of crude oil available for consumption, but plentifully stored in onshore and offshore tankers.

Nope. They'll do whatever they can to get or keep it green. It's perfect for all the volume trend followers. Green close on heavy volume is considered bullish even if it's by a point.

CNBC loves this off the lows bullshit.

Wall St. has always been full of liars but now it extends to the financial media. Congress has had it's share of liars and yes now ordinary citizens keep voting for the liars. We all need to look in the mirror.

Set up the straw man, knock him down.  What a joke.  The so called fiscal cliff isn't even the issue.  The issue is intractable spending and money printing to pay the bills, along with central planning doubling down on idiocy.

White House officials said Thursday that President Barack Obama will not send a fiscal cliff measure to Capitol Hill, while Republicans insisted they were expecting more details on the president's proposal.

 

An aide to Senate GOP leader Mitch McConnell, R-Kentucky, said the senator expected further details soon on what Obama and Democrats were proposing.

 

A Senate Democratic leadership member also said that more details would be provided. Both sources spoke to CNN on condition of not being identified further.

 

However, two White House officials, speaking on condition of anonymity, said the president was not sending a proposal to Congress.

 

Such parsing of words and interpretations showed the high political sensitivity over how the fiscal cliff negotiations are being portrayed to the public.

 

House leaders announced the chamber would reconvene on Sunday and could stay in session through January 2, before a new Congress gets sworn in on January 3.

Let me guess, instead of the ball, they're planning to drop the budget from the debt ceiling in Times Square at midnight on Dec 31. Becky Quick will be covering the event along with Kathy Lee and Hoda Kotb.

We are so far over the cliff it's not even funny. This is pure theater at this point. No Congress or president has the balls to admit the failures.

So 'markets' jump because they are going to have a meeting?

Hmmm, why not just say they are thinking of having a meeting, that would be good for infinitiy  gains because they could just keep delaying it, then reannounce it again

There... fiscal cliff averted .... easy...

Harry Reid is an ignorant asshole who knows no other way forward than to blame everyone in the House for why nothing is getting done in the Senate. Amazing.
