To see the market at these levels, with this level of sentiment, and just having hit the all-time lows in risk aversion, is very, very disconcerting.

Retail is now climbing in, after a rapid 4 year ROC and an expected YOY 4th Qtr decline in earnings.  These policies are shameful.

If you look at the long term Dow chart it seems obvious. We are in the beginning of the 5th year of the third 6 year cycle. This thing will implode anytime within the next 2 years. The more it goes up from here, the more obvious it seems to short it. That's what it looks like to me at least.

Remember, there is transitory "wealth" that will trickle down from the POMO-Equities-Bonds 'virtuous circle' ramp-a-thon that The Bernank has inflated using digital fiat, and the indexes (especially the Dow, Spooz & Russell 2k) are concrete, irrefutable proof of this (even if the real health of the economy, labor markets, level of aggregate demand, and government fiscal dis-health are not), until this inevitably collapses as all such bubbles do...

....there's that.

Not so fast, thismarketisrigged.  In fact, your handle says it all.  You see, you are 100% correct that this most criminal fiat ponzi scheme every concocted by mankind will crash and burn.  Where you get it wrong is that while you "think" you will laugh your ass off, the joke will be on you (and me and most of the rest of us that are not insane sociopaths).   Yes, what will happen as it always does is the market will crash and the most foolish of the fools will be rewarded.  The short sellers will be the bad guys (again)----basically, anybody that is not insane and has the ability to read a basic fraudulant balance sheet will get punished while the ignorant cheerleading lemmings will get bailed out. 

Welcome to Amerika---the most criminal prison planet insane asylum ever created by humans, where up is down, left is right, and if that doesn't work, well, up will be left and down will be right---and if that doesn't work, we will just keep changing our criminal, fiat ponzi scheme rules until heads we win, tails you lose.

And with it will come the full ownership of the economical happenings under his watch.  Not that he differs much from Bush, but Obama did win and the value of any saving you might actually have will be dropped into the toilet because of him and the Bernanke.

I wish I agreed.  The only thing Obama is actual competent at is blaming others.  He has already been pre-blaming congress for the future economic outcomes.  The man is far more dangerous now that he doesn't have to campaign...

You guys are acting like the corporate owners behind Obama are any different than those that backed Bush, they are not.

It's called fascism by the way.  Your "representation" is fully owned and it is not looking out for any of you, but rather the corporate masters.  Nice to see that "divide and conquer" tactics are still working (after some 6000+ years).  Turns out humans never really evolve after all.

Unlike those in the lower half of the top 1%, those in the top half and, particularly, top 0.1%, can often borrow for almost nothing, keep profits and production overseas, hold personal assets in tax havens, ride out down markets and economies, and influence legislation in the U.S. They have access to the very best in accounting firms, tax and other attorneys, numerous consultants, private wealth managers, a network of other wealthy and powerful friends, lucrative business opportunities, and many other benefits. Most of those in the bottom half of the top 1% lack power and global flexibility and are essentially well-compensated workhorses for the top 0.5%, just like the bottom 99%. In my view, the American dream of striking it rich is merely a well-marketed fantasy that keeps the bottom 99.5% hoping for better and prevents social and political instability. The odds of getting into that top 0.5% are very slim and the door is kept firmly shut by those within it.

great article.  like this snippet:

The picture is clear; entry into the top 0.5% and, particularly, the top 0.1% is usually the result of some association with the financial industry and its creations. I find it questionable as to whether the majority in this group actually adds value or simply diverts value from the US economy and business into its pockets and the pockets of the uber-wealthy who hire them. They are, of course, doing nothing illegal.

this fits snugly with the food stamps for the 1% post from last night:

the picture is becoming clearer, isn't it?

so Euro and gold are always positively corrolated? Not, sometimes $ and gold are perfectly positevely corrolated. Sometimes equities and gold are positively corrolated and sometimes directly inverse,,,,,,,,,,

FX mkt "managed", Bonds "managed" (FED QE PURCHASES), stocks managed either directly or indirectly thru zirp,,,,,,, metals NOT MANAGED?

The burden of proof is no longer on the metal manipulator arguement but on those that say they are not.........

Just rounding here:

year 2000 S&P 1500 / gold $300

year 2008 (march lets say) S&P 1500 / gold $1000

year 2013 S&P 1500 / gold $1660

as you say every moment in time is what it is but looking at a series of moments, well, you get the idea........

Lastly, gold has had a series of two year sideways moves before the next launch, we are currently in one of those....We are within 11% of alltime high and cant say the same for APPL. Gold looks great to me here, digesting huge decade long gains with a very nice sideways movement.

 Look at moments  over time and you will see the correct place to R.

'ahead post fed interest rate increase' - so then never, because the Fed, regardless of what they say, can never raise interest rates again, unless they want to expose the governments insolvency in an undeniable way (as opposed to the apparently deniable way it's currently exposed).

Huh, I guess I was wrong and you can fix the economy by printing endless quantities of money.  I always thought it would lead to rampant inflation, but other than the 30% rise in the price of the coffee, 25% rise in gas prices, and 10% rise in general grocery items and restaurant prices across the board since the end of last December, inflation appears to be well under control.  Thanks Ben, thanks a fucking lot.

I know technical analysis is diminished greatly in these markets due to "external forces" (money printing), but that yearly chart looks like an ascending wedge to me. Those typically wind in for a while and breakout to the downside.

So, a retrace to somewhere around 10,500 seems probable.

Or not, depending on your friendly central banker.

as u said, the technical analysis is diminished in this market. it really means nothing, as long as these assholes keep printing, things will go up. it will have to end eventually though

I think I'll ride my 401K up and then quit my job so I can have my money before this shit collapses.  I just don't know, obvioulsy, where the sweet spot is going to be - 15,000? 16,000? Infinity and beyond?

Too bad there's no more Dionne Warwick Psychic Network.  

Oh, and the esteemed "reverend" Jesse Jackson said yesterday that .gov should just take our retirement plans to pay the debt.  I'd like to strap him to Al Sharpton and drop them off somewhere in rural Alabama.

Laying out the need to propagandize a new generation of "investors", how to convince them (fool them) that the markets are not a rigged casino.

Absolute bullshit spewing from this guy; "U.S. is exquisitely positioned..." (yes, he used "exquisitely").

That's the problem with these assholes. They don't think about anything but their own self interest. These wealth mgmt dicks on the financial networks know that their dipshit clients are watching. They will never tell the truth or give a disclosure as to where their own money is. They just want to pacify their clients. 

     "Now listen mr. Dumbass, this is only a temporary fluctuation. There is just some typical market turbulence due to a variety short term factors. And besides, don't you here what all the other wealth/mutual fund mgrs are saying? Thats right! Their all saying the same thing that I've been saying. Just hold and continue to invest that percentage of you and your wifes salary I told you to, and it will all come back. And of course I, as well as every other manager and broker here at PIMP wealth management, have our own personal money in these same investment vehicles."

   "Just keep watching CNBC and Bloomberg and don't worry. Oh yeah, one last thing. Pay no attention to that Santelli guy. And that Marc Faber and that Peter Schiff guy are just CRAAAAAAAAAZY

In the first stage of NEP we permitted a revival of capitalism, permitted private trade, permitted the "activities" of private traders, capitalists, speculators.

That was more or less free trade, restricted only by the regulating role of the state. At that time the private capitalist sector had a fairly large place in the trade turnover of the country...

Can it be said that this is the position now?


Of course not.

[Joint Plenum of the C.C. and C.C.C., C.P.S.U.(B.) January 7-12, 1933 The Results of the First Five-Year Plan, J.V. Stalin]

Here all action must be governed by one law: the people does not live for business, and business does not exist for capital; but capital serves business, and business serves the people. In principle, the Government will not protect the economic interests of the German people by the circuitous method of an economic bureaucracy to be organized by the State, but by the utmost furtherance of private initiative and by the recognition of the rights of property....

We also know what are the conditions necessary for a sound exchange of services between the nations of the world. For Germany has been compelled for years to perform services without receiving an equivalent, with the result that the task of maintaining Germany as an active partner in the exchange of commodities is not so much one of commercial as of financial policy. So long as we are not accorded a reasonable settlement of our foreign debts corresponding to our economic capacity, we are unfortunately compelled to maintain our foreign-exchange control. The Government of the Reich is, for that reason, also compelled to maintain the restrictions on the efflux of capital across the frontiers of Germany....

For the overcoming of the economic catastrophe three things are necessary:

  1. Absolutely authoritative leadership in internal affairs, in order to create confidence in the stability of conditions.

  2. The securing of peace by the great nations for a long time to come, with a view to restoring the confidence of the nations in each other.

  3. The final victory of the principles of common sense in the organization and conduct of business, and also a general release from reparations and impossible liabilities for debts and interest.[BERLIN, REICHSTAG. SPEECH OF MARCH 23 1933. A Hitler]


At this stage, supercapitalism finds its inspiration and its justification in a utopia: the utopia of unlimited consumption. Supercapitalism's ideal is the standardization of the human race from the cradle to the grave. Supercapitalism wants all babies to be born exactly the same length so that the cradles can be standardized and all children persuaded to like the same toys. It wants all men to don the very same uniform, to read the same book, to have the same tastes in films, and to desire the same so-called labor-saving devices. This is not the result of caprice. It inheres in the logic of events, for only thus can supercapitalism make its plans...

A capitalist enterprise, when difficulties arise, throws itself like a dead weight into the state's arms. It is then that state intervention begins and becomes more necessary. It is then that those who once ignored the state now seek it out anxiously.

[Address to the National Corporative Council (14 November 1933), Benito Mussolini]

There once was a man from Nantuckett,

Who invested heavily in the stock market,

He started to frown,

When the numbers went down,

But then he remembered the Fed would just prop it up with worthless paper in perpetuity so he started to feel much better.

here is the most comical part about this market,


every month there are always revisions, usually downwards for the prior month, yet the market ignores that and focuses on the current numbers which r postive ( just to get a positive reaction than of course revised down bc it will be ignored then).


however, today when the current numbers were below expectations and last months numbers were revised upwards, they ignore todays news and look at last months numbers instead.


i really fucking hate these criminals
