By now everyone knows that POMO is the daily physical manifestation of the Fed's love for the "1%", and the trillions in underfunded pension and stock-linked entitlements, taking place (almost) every day in the hours between 10:15am and 11:00 am Eastern, when the NY Fed's trading desk injects between $1 and $6 billion in the stock market. What many may not know is that while POMO was the name of the game since 2009 (just think where the S&P would be if the "market" was only open on Thursday, during the 45 minute duration of POMO, and between 3:30 pm and 4:15 pm), it may have finally met its homophonous match, courtesy of Citigroup. So step aside POMO. Presenting.... FOMO, or Fear Of Missing Out.

From Citi's Stephen Antczak:

Fear Of Missing Out outweighs all others


There is a new factor that investors seem to be incredibly wary of, and it has nothing to do with fiscal challenges in Europe, a slow economic backdrop, shareholder-friendly activities, or the potential for rising rates. What investors seem to be most afraid of at this stage is simply missing out – missing out on carry in the best case, and continued tightening in the worst.... This FOMO mentality has become more acute and may outweigh all other worries in the near-term.

And circularly #Reffing! scene.

Golfclap oh Great Chairsatan: you have finally made the momentum chasing herd mentality, driven by the fear of a pink slip, the only game in town. How this has anything but a very happy ending for everyone is simply beyond us.

That's a bad sign, but so long as there is no chance those treasuries are going to go bidless, why not?  85 billion becomes 120 billion, then 300 billion.  everyone gets a free blow-job and a $25 loaf of bread or $25 gallon of gas, whichever comes first.

Defintely OT, but unless I missed it I have not seen this on any MSM, or ZH.



By Robert Mazur - Friday, May 3, 2013

Last December, HSBC admitted in court pleadings that it had allowed big Mexican and Colombian drug cartels to launder at least $881 million. The bank also admitted to using various schemes to move hundreds of millions of dollars to nations subject to trade sanctions, including Iran, Cuba and Sudan, in violation of the Trading With the Enemy Act. “On at least one occasion,” according to a statement by Assistant Attorney General Lanny A. Breuer, “HSBC instructed a bank in Iran on how to format payment messages so that the transactions would not be blocked or rejected by the United States.”

Those were some of the transgressions uncovered during a two-year investigation led by the Justice and Treasury Departments and acknowledged by HSBC in a settlement, known as a deferred prosecution agreement, that was filed in a federal court in December. Not a single executive was charged with a crime. Instead, the bank paid $1.9 billion in fines and forfeitures — or roughly 10 percent of the pretax profits it earned in just 2010, one of the more than five years during which it admitted to criminal conduct.

HSBC is hardly alone. Court filings show that, since 2006, more than a dozen banks have reached settlements with the Justice Department regarding violations related to money laundering. ING Bank paid a $619 million fine for altering records and secretly transferring more than $2 billion for entities trading with Iran and other nations under sanctions. American Express Bank International acknowledged that more than $55 million in drug proceeds may have been laundered through offshore shell accounts it maintained. The Justice Department has signed similar agreements, withholding prosecution in exchange for bank promises to tighten oversight, with Wachovia, Union Bank of California, Lloyds, Credit Suisse, ABN Amro Holding (now owned by Royal Bank of Scotland), Barclays and Standard Chartered. All admitted to criminal offenses; all were handed the equivalent of traffic tickets — pay a fine on your way out the door.

This has been the government’s playbook in fighting terrorism and the drug trade. For make no mistake, without the ability to “wash” billions of dollars of money from illicit sources each year and bank the untraceable profits, both of these criminal enterprises would falter.

In November, the House Subcommittee on Oversight, Investigations and Management issued a shocking report documenting the collaboration between Mexican and Colombian drug cartels and Hezbollah in narcotics and human trafficking, smuggling and financial crimes in the United States and Latin America — a partnership that, in just the border region between Brazil, Paraguay and Argentina, produces an estimated $12 billion in cash each year.

Yet data from the Department of Justice Asset Forfeiture Fund and the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime Research Report show that United States law enforcement tracks down and seizes no more than 1 percent of the drug fortunes generated each year by global cartels.

The rest isn’t hiding in mattresses. It’s being washed — stripped clean of information that would identify its source, then transferred from one account to another, and often moved surreptitiously through various business enterprises, until it can settle safely in a criminal’s private offshore bank account. None of this happens without help from bankers, lawyers and businessmen.

I have seen this firsthand. I was a federal agent for 27 years and worked undercover as a money launderer within this murky realm for five of them. I worked on teams that put leaders of drug cartels behind bars. The largest and most sophisticated of these criminal enterprises don’t trick banks into laundering their money — they partner with that small segment of the international banking and business community that recirculates drug profits and cash from other illicit trades, like black-market arms dealing.

The only way to stop the flow of this dirty money is to get tough on the bankers who help mask and transfer it around the world. Banks themselves don’t launder money, after all; people do.

The standard of proof needed to charge and convict a bank officer of money laundering is simple. If the person knows that funds are proceeds of a crime and, thereafter, he attempts to disguise or conceal the true source of the funds, he has committed the criminal offense of money laundering. Any individual who intentionally provides financial services to criminal organizations should be dealt with as harshly as possible under the law.

Bank officers at HSBC branches in Mexico who facilitated the transfer of $881 million for the Sinaloa Cartel in Mexico, the Norte del Valle Cartel in Colombia and other narcotics traffickers — deposits that were often passed through teller windows in cash-filled boxes, some with hundreds of thousands of dollars in them — might contend that they were naïve about this money’s source. But there’s little incentive for them, or any bank officer, to be more vigilant when turning a blind eye comes with little or no penalty.

The stakes are simply too high for such a soft-glove approach on money laundering. As long as drug traffickers can wash the stain from 99 percent of their ill-gotten gains, as long as terrorists can move their cash freely around the world, we’ll have no chance to halt their deadly trades. We can help put an end to both of these scourges by putting the bankers who facilitate them in jail.

Do not worry Kito, the problem has nothing to do with jewish people. It has to do with bad banking and corrupt practices. We live in equal opportunity corruption with everyone offered the opportunity to be corrupt, wasp, catholics, jews, blacks everyone can be corrupt in America.

As for jewish people guys, please leave Kito alone. You guys have to make the difference between a guy like Rabbi Weiss who is a good man and peaceful guy with a war mongering nut case finding every opportunity to start a conflict. There are good men and war mongerers in every religion. My great-grand parents were jailed and almost starved in french prisons, (they were not jews) but they could not stand to be ruled by fuck heads and morons. So fuck head and morons leave Kito alone, and I piss on your back for attacking Kito and some people for no other reason that they are of the jewish faith and that your brain is limited and somewhat looking for a stupid answer to a situation it can not process logically.

As for you Kito, I think it is retarted to stack paper money unless you expected Ben Bernanke have the CTRL and P keys on his computers to be inoperative, that being said, it is a lot more retarted to stack currency deposit at the bank (which in theory can be cyprused but in practice will never be).

Thank you for reminding everyone that... In reality... It is francis_sawyer, who in his nightly sonambulistic states... Goes out there & prints the money himself...

His only assistance in this endeavor is by the cold lifeless limestone of the Marriner Eccles building itself...

Little does anybody know that the [non]Federal [non]Reserve simply upped & constructed itself... It's like a page straight out of Ghostbusters... The 'BUILDING' is possessed... Nobody even had to build it... Likewise, there are no operatives, & no shareholding families...

The money just prints itself [& all you're left to do is to duke it out with the Sta Puft Marshmallow man]...



& kito... Wanna know something?... The most tiresome thing of all, for me, is to have to present the same facts over & over... Not long ago, buried in these threads, I gave a whole rundown of the Fed Chairs that were jewish... It was something like 17 out of 22 [but that's information that is easy to obtain]... Instead ~ what do you do?... You come on here & pretend that it doesn't exist... Same thing with both the attendees of Jeckyl Island [spearheaded by Warburg]... & even thorough explanations as to how 'non' jewish families [like the House of Morgan], got into the game as a direct link from jewish banking heirarchy...

Next thing you're going to tell me is that the House of Windsor & Rothschild are mutually exclusive...

Tue, 05/07/2013 - 18:46 | 3538951 WhiteNight123129
WhiteNight123129's picture

I will do the job.

Ok where do we start...?

First is jew an adjective or a substantive?

How do you go from adjective to substantive. What is this substantive defining? People from the jewish faith?

What is the range of difference in political opinion, position on conflicts, on social issues, wealth in a given religion?

Are the political positions, opinions, wealth homogenuous in the group you are trying to bundle up together?

Does the definition of a ~group~ stand the disparity in wealth, geography, poltical stance, opinions?

I believe you are mixing up jews and corrupt bankers. There are many corrupt bankers who are not jews and would they get indulgence from you just because they are not jew? There are many jews who are not bankers at all and not corrupt, should they deserve your hatred?

I think you are making a syllogism which is the following.

Many bankers are jew (which is a true statement). Many banker are corrupt (which is also a true statement). 

Hence jews are corrupt (false conclusion). 

Very very bad thought process.

By nbow readers of this blog realize that YOU ARE EFFECTIVELY RETARDED.

Many bankers are not jew and many jews are not bankers.

As for why so many bankers are jew it is simply a function of history and a ban on money dealing by the catholic church for catholics.

Consider that your line of thought is similar to the following.

A ---> B

A ----> D


/B ---> D

Ok let us have a go with your retarded thought process.

Many college students brush their teeth. (A --->B)

Many college students drink alcohol. (A --->D)

Hence people who brush their teeth drink alcohol (/B---> D)

You note that I use /B instead of B, because you are making a distortion from B to /B.

The extension from ~college students who brush their teeth~ to ~people who brush their teeth~ is similar in nature to the extension from ~bankers who are jewish~ to  ~people who are jewish~.

As a result while it is probable that ~many jewish bankers are corrupt~ is a true statement just because the statement ~many bankers are corrupt~ is probably true itself.

However you can also say ~many bankers who wear glasses are corrupt~ is probably a true statement just because the statement ~many bankers are corrupt~ is probably true itself.

Can you conclude that people who wear glasses are corrupt?

see comment above ^^^


The only retarded thing here is for you, once again, to drag this conversation back into the cesspool of having to do with religions, or faith... [which I've repeated many times, on this blog, that it has nothing to do with]...


So I don't need to know anything about college students & teeth brushing... All I need to know about is WHO holds the franchise on money printing... I've narrowed it down...

- It's not me

- It's not the Muzzies, or Hindus, or Buddhists, or Hare Krishnas [although don't try & glean anything 'religious' about that]

- It's not the Eskimos

- It doesn't print itself


1. Who holds the franchise on money printing?

2. Who was present when that idea was conceived?

That's all you need to know...

Money printing is the most important factor in driving all of the markets.  When will this policy cease to be effective?

"BlackRock Inc.’s (BLK) Laurence D. Fink, head of the world’s largest asset manager, said U.S. employers should be required to put money aside for their employees’ retirement, similar to Australia’s superannuation system."


We need some greater fools in the future to assure the ponzi...

Fink basically saying:  "Give us your money so we can leech off of it, the government can tax the piss out of it, and really, we can eventually - in collusion with the government we control - VAPORIZE it."

Fink, how apropos:


1. A contemptible person. 2. An informer. 3. A hired strikebreaker.

Fear Of Missing Out

Which is only eclipsed by the Fear Of Being In and Not Among the First to Get Out (FOBINAFGO).

Funny how we never get a chance to hear about that experience from Wall Street or the MSM.

But, I can hardly wait for Becky, Maria, and Warren to get noms for the next Daytime Emmy Awards. Following that, they will probably tow a Bernanke balloon down Broadway during the next Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade.

omgd, watching cnbc, i am puking. '' and we are at new all time highs for this market'', fuck off.


i really do not understand this game anymore.


why wouldnt people take money off the table. it makes no fucking sense. why why why, i cant understand. there is no stock anymore that is attractive.


take for example google. even if for some reason people thought google was attractive, who the fuck would keep buying the stock up at this fucking inflated price? same with amazon, aapl,whatever stock u can name. yes i know the fed is buying it to answer my own queston, but its sickening,


im done with these random down 150 pts on dow days, i better fucking see down 500-600 pts on dow during next sell off. 


the only thing that can make this day good is if bernanke is arrested at days end. otherwise, its the same old shit.


tonight futures will be red a bit, only to all wake up tomorrow morning and find futures either flat or up 50 plus pts. disgusting and criminal, and yet the ponzi scheme goes on and on.


whenever we here of ponzi schemes, eventually the people responsible are caught and punished accordingly. in those cases though, its not known about until its too late.


today we have a ponzi scheme going on right infront of our eyes, everyone can see it, no one is trying to hide it, yet it goes unpunished. makes no sense, yet this whole market makes no sense either.

"They" are not taking money off the table because Bernanke is now in equities, and because Bernanke is going to buy more bonds soon. No sense selling when it's going up another 30 to 50%. Japan and Europe just eased so we can go next and bigger.

FOMO sounds like something Taleb wrote in his book about black swans and gambler's delusions. Clever.

Funny. With RE price rises, and Dow ~ 15k,   Bernanke is going to look like a genius, probably just before he leaves. The fireworks from the next crash is going to be awesome.

Take a deep breath.

This is what the FED does. It has been doing it for a long time

Now, it seems absurd, since the BoJ, the BoE, the ECB, etc. etc. etc. are all doing it. Together.

Just like valuations in the Tech bubble, everyone knew it was nuts, no one wanted to admit it.

Now, everyone knows its nuts, but hey, on a relative basis, stocks are the only place to be blah blah blah.

This is what the FED does, its in its nature.

Nature will run its course, but not yet, not yet. Should be even more fun when HFTs dissappear in nano seconds from providing "liquidity". It is going to be a Nolan Ryan fastball to a T-ball player.

We are witnessing the JOY of going FULL RETARD which overwhelms all else.

This whole 'market' is tedious. Without normal
operational procedures the clowns take over. Either some dullards who are phony as shit and think QE2 is a cruise liner, but give great brown nosing, or else its the anal ivy league jerks who see the bullshit out there but continue to schmooz and talk the talk, but are about as trustworthy as a spider sitting in its web..

Mostly the nice people in an investment bank work in Operations, Finance and sometimes Technology. They don't have the motivation to lie, and usually are the most genuine people anyway who see through the wanky BS of the faker bakers.

This is just a rant, but there are serious points here. This whole investing banking game is pure shit. The most laughable sight in human existence (but sad also) is seeing investment banking grads spouting shit to each other and their colleagues so as to try to impress someone; impress anyone...: they are just sad little pricks...I feel sorry for them
Wasting their lives on the pursuit of nothing...its all a mirage..

Because, “Where else are you gonna go?”.

Of course, it’s more accurate to recognize there is no place else for the money to go. There is no opportunity to wisely invest all the money being printed in new ventures and projects that produce a real yield. In any case, these Wall Street types getting all the free money to play with wouldn’t know how to build a real grass roots company that actually produces value for customers if their life depended on it. What they don’t seem to realize is that once they drive the yield on stocks down to the current levels we see in bonds, their life will depend on it. Oh well, I guess more lessons of the past are yet to be ignored.

My husband is mad at me because I insisted we get out of the market at 11,000.

So.  We're moving our money back in.  Very, very slowly.


I hate looking like an idiot.  I'm starting to feel like an idiot, god knows.

How long can this go on????
