Bubble On The Margin

Tyler Durden's picture





 

Presented with little comment except to note, each time the NYSE member firms margin-buying has become so vociferously positive over and above the Dow, things have not turned out so well...

 

But we are sure it's different this time...

What do you mean there is a margin bubble?

Just a few days ago, the monetary God Bernanke said affirmatively there were no bubbles.

I really feel that there will be one more crash. It will be big enough to break the system and the oligarchs will try to put everything back together the way they want. They will fail and we will be set free.

That's what babies in incubators are saying.  "DUH!"  Margin debt!  And "BUY PUTS MAMMIT!"  It is hard to believe that incubator babies might have it over janitors about to be fired.   Fascinating.

Can somebody please explain to me why I'm still paying taxes?

What would happen if a concerted effort was made and 20% of the population just opted out?

Well... besides being called a terrorist and detained on a sunny island indefinetly

Didn't notice "firing IRS agents" on the endless list of cuts due to the sequester.  

We can no longer afford to guard illegals as they were set free ahead of the sequester but we can sure as hell continue to afford the guards watching over the tax payers.

Hey, if the government can print money, let them print all that is needed.  Leave me the fuck alone with your confiscatory taxes.

So I guess you would be OK with the resulting confiscatory inflation then?

Might not be too bad if you have enough pm's. I would be thrilled to the point of delerium if I was able to stroll into the local Wells Fargo office and pay off my mortgage with a 1oz bar of gold. It could happen! Oh wait it already did in Weimar Germany.

Better to pay off your mortgage with the inflated fiat and save the 1oz gold bar to buy a loaf of bread

 Didn't anyone look at the News out of China and Europe all week? I know my fellow Z/Hers do. Every damned Central bank is full tilt "put" on U.S. markets. The morning N.Y. ramps are so delusional, that I cringe everytime I fire up my trading platform. I'm going to wake up one morning and sky is going to be full of "mushroom clouds" and "unicorns".

Daily volume readings seem to confirm the margin bubble. Four volume readings suggest that the odds for a secondary reaction are increasing:
