And The Market Breaks

Tyler Durden's picture

Right on cue.


Perhaps now is a good time to close the market when there are still gains on the day.

Everyone just buys because it's been so long they've forgotten how to sell.

Buy with customer's money.


Sell to friends.


What could go wrong?

Poll time.

Give me an up arrow if you think the US stock markets are going to be up at the end of Wednesday's trading.

Down arrow if you think they will be down.

My take on all of this so-called fiscal cliff nonsense is that stock market confidence is paramount above all else.

The Dow is like the canary in the coal mine...

SoCalBusted's picture

I think the volume is more of a canary than any specific level.  Maybe someone can create a model that considers both and put more weight on the volume.

The DOW is the carbon monoxide.

Fuck this asshole 'market'! GOLD AND SILVER, BITCH!

redpill's picture

It's so far gone quotes aren't even enough anymore.

HoofHearted's picture

When the market is going up, all is well. If it drops at all, we say it must be a broken market...unless it is in the precious metals of course...

I pumped you mom so hard, I broke her.

And on New Years Eve, too.

Are you watching the same markets I'm watching?

They're spiking.

A backroom deal must have been reached.

We don't know about it.  But the powers-that-be have the info.

More insider trading.

Gangum Style......

Colonel Klink's picture

More like gangbang style.  It's our government and Fraud street who are running the train on us.

Best way to fight back is not to let them finish the job.

Such utter total fucking bullshit nonsense!

like I said from earlier.....did i miss anything except for the market breaking?


i know the feeling....but i think we all know the script here;


just enough talk to keep the markets green during cash hours, then more corkeresque headlines over the holiday, all to bide time for the 85bil to prop markets in time to soak up all the incoming 2013 first of year/month/flows blah blah blah ensuring that all shorts are crushed and the <whisper> short selling ban stays in effect.


I almost left out the part where TPTB makes sure trading revenues are not interupted the remainder of 2012 for bankster bonus purposes by using headlines and keeping resolution in limbo, and to use AAPL/BAC to keep S&P above 1400 for same reasons.

Huh...and yet I was reading all year that the extraordinary blatant market pumping and data rejiggering was 'for the elections'...and right after that then we'd see 'reality' come rushing back in and the bloodbaths etc. Oh well guess not.

One evening indeed...  Read it and contemplate it.

samcontrol's picture

Tyler, love the site and all but maybe some here might be getting it a little wrong...we are not going to walk around with gold in our wallets this lifetime....that should get me 50 red arrows.

icanhasbailout's picture

Maybe not, but if you're lucky, you'll be walking around with paper notes readily exchangable for gold or silver, like US currency used to be. If you're not lucky, you'll be pushing electronic wheelbarrows.

samcontrol's picture

maybe i just don't get what you are saying..

ebworthen's picture

Like wheelbarrows of Deutschmarks or Zimbawbe dollars yet no tangible currency - no paper or coin - only binary digits in an account somewhere that can be vaporized overnight.

This is why Federal employees are only paid via direct deposit into a binary non-paper account.

This is why the masses are being weaned off of tangible currency and herded into self-checkout lanes using debit cards or EBT cards or unemployment accounts with a card run by J.P. Morgan Chase.

Our entire societal construct is a ponzi and it is unraveling.

samcontrol's picture

Most of us know that, the argument is in the timing...i think they keep it up for decades, then i'll be gone and won't give a fuck.

Maybe you know little or nothing about monetary history, particularly the sordid and invariably collapsing nature of fiat currencies.

samcontrol's picture

maybe we get monetary crisis all the time in South America , and i understand them more than you think?

Dollars lost half their value in ten years, and will the next ten, i still want say 10million dollars...get the point?

akak's picture

No, actually, I do not get your point at all, nor do I suspect do most or all others reading this exchange.

But as a South American, perhaps you can answer a question that I have long wished to pose to somebody from that continent: given that currency debasements, hyperinflations and monetary collapses have been an almost routine feature of your societies in the last several decades at least, WHY do your people still routinely fall for the depredations of your governments in this matter?  In other words, why do South Americans appear to STILL put trust in government fiat currencies for their savings, rather than say gold and/or silver?

samcontrol's picture

Je suis Francais. I ignore governments worldwide and have never payed taxes except on my homes and cars. Some of the advantages people have here. More to life than gold and silver. bitchez. happy new year!

akak's picture

Si vous ette Francais, entonces yo soy confundido.


samcontrol's picture

my dad figured out this tax thing decades ago...

MayIMommaDogFace2theBananaPatch's picture

WHY do your people still routinely fall for the depredations of your governments in this matter? 

Isn't the better question to ask: "why do people worldwide still routinely believe in the promises made by politicians."

I'm continually amazed by it but I think the answer is connected to some human quirk that causes us to become blinded by the appeal of some future-promised-thing.

The greater the appeal the greater potential for blindness and anything that might threaten the promise being fulfilled, must be denied or ignored.  

The idea that the promise itself could NEVER possibly be fulfilled (i.e. too good to be true) must be defended against more vigorously because it would short-circuit the whole fantasy right at the moment of conception!

If CogDis is around I bet he could speak to this -- probably even tell me the proper word for such an idea.

You are not going to be walking around with dollars near the end of your lifetime either.

samcontrol's picture

You might instead be walking around with a collar attached to a chain in a forced labor camp soon though.
