Friday Farce: 16 Year Old Outperforms 99% Of Hedge Funds: "Oh My Gosh, That's So Easy, I Have To Do This"

Tyler Durden's picture





 

Forget Ackman, Einhorn, Bass, And Hendry. There is only one name in the world of equity market performance in 2012 - Rachel Fox, of 'Desperate Housewives' fame. With a 30%-plus performance, the day-trading debutante has turned from actress to activist as she day-trades her way through the day. The 16-year-old actress who made 338 trades last year, based mostly on technicals, ""...fell in love with the idea and the concept of being able to just buy something, have it go up, or have it go down, depending on which way you bet it and have it make you money. I thought, oh, my, gosh, that's amazing, and so easy, I have to do this." If ever there was a sign of the extreme bubble that central planning has re-created for us - it has to be this. Her advice: "you have to really just trade on your own instincts and not just be like, oh, this person says this is great, let me just go for it." LOL, OMG, IKR ;-( Our advice: next time readers are discussing stock tips with a random employee of Hustler Club, Scores or Spearmint Rhino - don't just stare, listen! Said 'random employee' is almost certainly outpeforming the "smart money", and the broader market, by a wide margin. Thank you Ben.

She'll "re-invest" away every BernankBuck of paper "profit" she makes and dig deeper into her reserve fund before "the markets" are done with her.

Just like the Mrs. Watanabes. Poor Mrs. Watanabes, remember them? Send them rice, soup and socks. Taro Aso bankrupted their asses with one cold handed bitchslap from high above  (Department of Whoops: Yen Weakens 'More Than Intended'). That's "the market" for ya':

Stock trading has always been a game largely of chance, countless studies have shown this. Your investment advisor wins either way on commission but the actual "skill" involved is negligible.

As the guy from Blackrock said, 'markets like totalitarianism.' Why? Because these guys need predictable markets to ensure predictable returns, just like Rachel Fox.

There was a guy worth over 400 million dollars near where I live (he made his money manufacturing aviation parts and he was a great uncle of a friend of mine) who put into his will & trust documents that any of his 5 kids would be cut off and disinherited if they ever invested in or traded stocks, commodities or options.

He was very open about this and had maintained that he never personally saw a single one of his peers/friends/business partners (many of whom liked to "trade") make any money, let alone not lose money, doing so over the long run, and was 100% convinced "the markets" were a giant scam propped up by the financial sector that he believed owned Congress & the President.

In other words, he was a very wise man.

Overfed:

The best Chris Hansen moment was when he was with the police following a "bait car" that the cops use to catch car thieves in the act. They either leave it running or with the keys in the ignition. The cops follow the thief for a few blocks, then remotely disable the engine and lock the doors.

Anyhow, this one thief is carted out of the vehicle, cuffed, and then Chris Hansen starts asking him about why he stole the car.

This guy starts freaking out and says something to the effect of “I steal cars!! I never touched no kids!!!”

Used to be Bellhops and shoeshine boys,now it's an "actress",if ever we needed confirmation we are in a good old traditional bubble there it is. Everyone is expecting the indices to reverse at the old highs,but Bernanke and the banks know this,the mother of all ramp jobs is coming to blast them thru the old highs,expect Bernanke to win as always.

Bubble Bernanke and the Fed with all their excessive money made it so easy a monkey can make money in this market. Buy on the dips.

It will be amusing to see how Bubble Bernanke and the Fed squirms when all those dollars from overseas comes rushing in and drives up inflation well beyond their BS ability.

So on CNBC they're talking about this storm moving stocks and the market in the next three days. 

Um...is this what we are down to?  Ben Bernanke and storms?

What about employment?

What about sound money?

What about rights?

Surprised she didn't mention the importance of a very well paid "part time" job schedule to provide a bit of security in case a person ever experiences a bad run of trades.

That cinches it for me, though.  Fuck my current job.  I'm going to become a day-trading teevee personality.

Yen, thanks, but I've been here for two years and have seen a cargo truck full of people as intelligent or far more so than I.

One thing I didn't ever expect to see was a 20% depreciation in the yen in just a matter of weeks. If one considers the slow and steady APPRECIATION of the yen relative to most foreign currencies over the last decade, even while Japan has been printing and indebting itself like a Krugman-run fiefdom, it's bewildering to those of us who've seen this take place so suddenly on nothing more than a change in the Prime Minister and more aggressive jawboning by the finance minister.

As I mentioned regarding a prior article, the yen carry trade was one of the main pillars of international finance over the last 7 to 10 years.

It's all rather spectacular.
