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.

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...

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.

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.

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.

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.

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?

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 won't need a wheel barrow if you've got gold. Silver yes, and maybe that's why it's a better bargain. The point isn't to use them as money, even though they are ideal units of exchange. It's to save your wealth so that you aren't always chasing money.

@samcontrol. VERY FEW here expect to use gold as a medium of exchange....they are only trying to preserve wealth in a fiat system can maintain you point of view inspite of overwhelming evidence that counterfeiting is the only game in day you may be able to understand why people want something that wil hold its value against can just ignore it and remain ignorant....either way most here could care less what you do....

Do you have a crystal ball I don´t... The only thing is that we have seen the French paper money " livre" break in 1721 from 6.9 grams of Silver per "livre" in 1709 to 2.55 gram per livre during the crisis. We have seen the currency reform and a new paper money in Massachusetts back in 1737, we have seen the assignats as the new currency break completely lose in 1791-1796 in France. We have seen great volatility in the non redeemable british pound between 1797 and 1821 in the UK during the war, we have seen convertibility suspended in France back in 1848 for a while we have seen the greenback episode until 1866 of suspension of convertibility, we have seen the inflation of World War I and gold embargo of 1817 in the US, and the resulting gold exchange standard putting the derivative (the currency) on same footing as the monetary asset (Gold) -- pure madness -- . The Russian saw 400% inflation into 1917, the German saw weimar in 1921. The Chinese have seen their Silver standard get completely distorted in the 30s, move to paper currency, then get into war and then into hyperfinlation in 1848, etc... etc..  We have seen devaluation of 1931 in the West which led to the liquidation of foreign currency reserve for gold in 1935 (the same is happening today with china and emerging market converting their IOUs for gold). And today this time is different, yeah right... you are maybe right, but I am betting that nothing never ever changes with human nature. Those in power think they are smarter than their elders, that they have invented the philosophal stone and it fails yet again, rinse repeat, put enough time so people can not have memory from direct experience, and hte only way to recreate the memory is though reading history.... The only thing that changes is technology for hte rest we are exactly the same than 300 years ago. Think that paper money is just a evolution of progress? It was tried again and again and again.... happy ignorance year....
