‘The problem with Quantitative Easing is that it works in practice but it doesn’t work in theory’, dixit Ben Bernanke.
Nothing “capitalistic” about these monopoly mergers.
Presented with one comment... 'wealth'
and what drove us here fromthe 10/17/07 last time we passed 14,000
Man, the hookers & dealers in Manhattan are gonna be real busy tonight
Goldilocks needs the work, anyway.

Surely sarcasm, right?
Warren Buffett just won his $5 billion bet.
Perhaps he should share it with the tax payers that made it all happen...
Can we see it priced in gold?
How about the U.S.'s GDP in terms of grams/ounces/tonnes of gold?
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.
We will all soon be the poorest millionaires on the planet!
i think i can i think i can i think i can i think i can i think i can....
The Dow is Awesome................Ill be charging up 3 to 4 thousand on my credit cards this weekend.
p.s I wont be paying it back...............ROCK ON BITCHES
Are you buying phyzz or something? /sarc (not really)
IM RICH BITCHEZ
...that is until the double top finishes it formation.
.............didn't you mean until the TRIPLE top finishes its formation?
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.
Oh yeah... WEALTH
1st of the month, today, just paid my mortgage (with the PMI payment), the lease on my Escalade, and all the minimums on my credit cards.
Thank you Obama and Bernanke.
I FEEL wealthy, today!
I bet all those newly unemployed people and people leaving the work force (they're not unemployed since BLS doesnt count them) for good also feel wealthy today.
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...
Fuck you to the bowels of fucking burning hell Bernanke you fucking rapist of young children's future wealth.
Fucking die a painful burning death to you and the fucking Fed you subhuman fuck.
15000 by end of next week.
things r great here, i feel so wealthy, this is the best indicator of the economy. boy i will laugh my ass off when this collapse happens and watching all these fucking fools on tv panic and flip flop.
fuck them all.
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.
"where up is down, left is right, and if that doesn't work, well, up will be left and down will be right"
War is Peace
Freedom is Slavery
Ignorance is Strength
Yea good advice.
We all need to rememeber to record Bloomberg and CNBC every day.
We don't want to miss them pissing themselves when this shit goes south.
Remember folks, that stuff will be comedy history one day.
You'll watch it with your friends over and over again!
If your lucky, one may even off themselves on camera; and if not, a storming mob may do it.
At least we won't hear Obama claim that DOW 14000 is Bush's fault.
Obama won fair and square. Get over it.
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.
Your misread of people's comments to get your say in is getting a little tiresome.
Some people shoot first and ask questions later.
...and think they are continually unveiling novel thinking to folks five steps ahead of them.
"It is in your nature to destroy yourselves." - The Terminator
Obama is in office, to be sure. Whether he won, well, that is another question. And whether he did so, fair and square, wow, that is truly an entirely different question.
Oh, and you can get up off your knees and wipe that stuff away that is dripping from your lips. Obama is tired of you.
Look at your increased taxes and healthcare cost. See how fair and square it really is.
irs says...the basic (bronze) obamacare package 20,000.00
I know exactly how the wingers feel. I was dumbfounded when BushCo got a second term. It was close though, the democraps ran the dumbass Kerry and he almost won. What a pisser that would have been for Hillary... oh wait... and wait some more.
WTF is a "winger"? A fan of the eponymous 80s hair band?
Sure he did, by cheating successfully.
Obama won fair and square. Get over it
Anytine there is a Chicago character involved in any election, fair and square is not even on the table.My money is on voters boxes were so tampered with it's a laughingstock.
Only the Demoncrats can steal elections and no one says a word.
Plus what did he win?, Four more years to tear down what he hasn't destroyed in the first four?.
His middle name should be Abaddon.
Was it important to you that Obama "won"?
And when the house of 14,000 cards collapses, it'll be Bush's fault again.
