The FEDs gonna shit in its hat and pull it over its ears.

They are crooks, traitors, criminals and need to be locked up. The only thing you can be sure about the FED is that they are going to steal your money.

The Fed will be shitting in everyone elses hat but it won't be shitting in it's own hat that's for sure. Whether it comes in a hat or through a fan, it will be on us and not them.

What's this? Now Tylers believe that the Fed will 'talk down' the markets before they draw down their monetization actions? Thats fucking ridiculous....like thinking the kidnappers actually like you. I'll guarantee you I'm not betting on this theory, at all...they'll scalp the shit out of you that's what's going to happen!

QE1...not enough

QE2...need Moar

Operation twist...just a coffee break

QE3....who could have guessed it?

QE4....stock market crack

But that's it. That's where it ends. Shirley they won't do QE5.

Airplane and Zero Hour Mashup


From the video's description on YouTube:

"Airplane!" is the greatest comedy film ever made, and was conceived after the writers caught the movie "Zero Hour!" on late night television.

"Airplane!"'s producers bought the rights to the 1957 film and used the same screenplay to create the basis for the spoof.

Airplane contains references to disaster films in general, with specific jokes aimed at the Airport series of films and Saturday Night Fever.

But the film pokes fun at Zero Hour the most, by using the same scripted lines, using a Basketball player to be the co-pilot, and even adding an exclamation mark to the title.

Basically, Airplane IS Zero Hour, and this video shows you some of the similarities. If you like this video, please consider buying either or both movies - they are available on Amazon for hardly any money at all, and both are great to watch. If you know Airplane well, Zero Hour is almost as funny. When they say the fog's getting thicker, you can't help buy say "And Leon's getting laaaaaarger!!!"

But how high will the DOW go before the grand pyrotechnic finale? That is the ten trillion $ question that  us greedy investors want to know. I'll bet on at least 36000.


You can always exit early. But don't try to get out even one millisecond late.

hft. the computers have a clock like door. or a door like
the door . what is clock speed?
"Clock speed is a measure of how quickly a computer completes basic computations and operations. It is measured as a frequency in hertz (Hz), and most commonly refers to the speed of the computer's Central Processing Unit (CPU). While computer developers and users can refer to this term regarding CPU performance, this has fallen out of favor as CPUs have become more complex. The easiest ways to boost clock speed in a computer include upgrading components and "overclocking" a piece of hardware.

What Clock Speeds Measure

There is a small quartz crystal inside of a CPU that vibrates at a particular oscillation or frequency. This frequency sets the "speed" of processes in the computer and is usually very high; they are typically measured in megahertz (MHz) and gigahertz (GHz). A megahertz is one-million cycles per second, while a gigahertz is one-billion cycles per second. So a computer with a clock speed of 800MHz is running 800,000,000 cycles per second, while a 2.4GHz computer is running 2,400,000,000 cycles per second.

These cycles set the speed for all processes within a computer. This ensures that all components and memory are working together at a rate that remains harmonious. Different components and processes can also run as a fraction of the primary CPU speed, which allows each element of a computer to work on its own and still function with the primary frequency of the CPU.
"..at a rate that remains harmonious".
good luck finding the door.
"..this was no boating accident". r.d. (jaws)

Real inflation is about 10%.  The government debt is $17T.  We are thus inflating away $1.7T.  The U.S. can thus spend $1.7T more than it takes in indefinitely.  Where's the problem?

You do not do the grocery shopping obviously.

In many cases the inflation rate on the basic of FOOD is 33% and hidden in repackaging and downsizing of portions.

Gradual upswing on prices combined with a down-sizing of pack sizes...

Go figure that.

When the correction occurs it will be an instantaneous crash, the markets will halt and remain closed - the notion that you can watch VIX and still have time to get out is laughable.

The HFT's are going to be running just a tad faster than VIX.


I visualize the HFT's as moving so quickly they create a cavitation bubble (vacuum) which then implodes.For an interesting view of this phenomina, Google pistol shrimp.

Hey Hilsenrath, FU! We know your full of BS. 

It's best to ignore Hilsenrath. The Fed cannot quit QE. In fact the Fed may even increase QE/month.

Hilsenrath, we know Bubble Bernanke, Evans, Dudley and Yellen are about the only ones buying US debt, so they cannot stop.

So you can exhaust all the hot air you want. Your irrelevant now.

I have not slept in 2 weeks. I have been glued to this place. I walk my dog a bit less, so I can get back here and check in. I'm not depressed. Just convinced something is about to break. Everyone I speak to feels the same way. I have a good group of close friends. We get lunch a few days a week. It becomes a bitchfest. Everyone logging complaints about how things are. Everyone knows a reset will be god awful and yet everyone is almost looking forward to it. Just so that you get that vindication in knowing you were not nuts.

It used to be the market could stay irrational longer than you can stay solvent. Now it's the market can stay irrational longer than you can stay sane.

I need a break from this place so bad, but yet this place has become the only semblance of reality that I know. Fucked up man....

it is very serious. the world can remain evil and
disgusting longer than you can stay alive. a person
does need to have the discipline to walk away, prioritize
their time and energy in a sustainable way or ...
get sick and die from internalizing the global "muck"
and debris that is brought to you at the speed of light
from every perspective on the planet. the mind of man
or any sentient being was not designed to integrate this
many perspectives this fast. it is unsustainable and for your
own survival you have to learn your limits before the
violation of them destroys you.
exercise and quiet meditation everyday for some time is
something to seriously contemplate.

Hey man, get your life back.  What will happen will happen.  This thing will go on for a lot longer than any of us think.  Maybe that's a good thing; not sure.  Whatever happens, trust that there are more good people in this country than bad.  We still have a political system that can recover with citizen anger but more importantly citizen action.  Get some sleep.

Miker thanks, for whatever reason, I never got sleep. My whole life I have fought with it. I am all good. I still keep the seperation and more importantly my sense of humor.

ZH, and all of the internet in general, is a huge mirror, an echo chamber, a Chinese room with 90% non-signal where you feed it your own emotions, desires and dreams to complete the information feedback and it spits back what you require.


That's its dark secret, and why it works so well.

Oh, sweety.

Yes, that's ZH's hook, it's not how the internet works though. That's why I've linked to TED talks on information bubbles, and in my more Chthonic moments linked you to dark places, to break said bubbles (to the algos, just having a link in your space is enough to chip the walls).













































David Bowie ~ hi there Mr Star Man. Don't see any others doing the Scientific Journalism though, nor the multi-layered link mimetic referencing. And to think I chose the rankest pound out there, was it by chance? Or was it because it was the only place that would tolerate it in these odd times?
