Its fitting that the plane looks similar to the Dreamliner from BOEING. Lots of shattered dreams will become reality.

This woulda never happened if FIRST CLASS weren't so topheavy...

Planes can't fly that low to the ground over great distances...unless they are flying into the Pentagon.

Ben will just change the rules to make it okay.  The plane can fly forever if I just don't recognize it as a crash.

Very simple: The plane represents wealth. The wealth is about to be distributed throughout the land.

Similar to Flight 93's debris field?

It's the American Dreamliner 787......

That's a hump back whale 747 no ?

It's not the fall that gets ya, it's the sudden stop at the end.

Negative Divergent Field of Acceleration...Bitches!

Note the "Acceleration" part, that's important for forward planning.

Cycles repeat, nature corrects, variables vary, and we move on to the next.

Yeah. Someone told me how unlikely an economic collapse is considering the recent past. Does death become less likely with age?

In my entire life I have never died. I'm sure I'll live forever

Its not that the plane is flying into the earth, its not the planes fault. The earth is actually hurtling itself at the plane.

Just ask Ben, he will confirm.

According to Sir Isaac they are each falling towards each other.

Joe Sixpack's picture

...but Einstein would say it does not matter. 'Tis but a matter of relative motion.

A Nanny Moose's picture

Are they falling, or just responding to perturbations in time?

Negatory.  This guys got a job.

OT and holy shit, the bastards are really going to do this?

"liquidity fees and redemption gates" on money markets.


Buckaroo Banzai's picture

"The SEC plan comes after a long debate over whether changes made in 2010 were enough to avoid a repeat of a run on money market funds seen at the height of the financial crisis."

Well well well. I suppose Tyler will be on this shortly. That creaking sound you hear is the exit gates slowly swinging shut.

Since no one wants their vacation ruined, I expect they will wait until September before letting this pig crash.

Pure Evil's picture

Tyler was on this about two years ago. Did quite a few extensive articles about the whole scam.

Buckaroo Banzai's picture

Yes I remember, but now it looks like its actually happenning.

And they 'give' us 90 days to comment. Like our comments will make any difference. Totalitarian Democracy, where"…liberty can be made into a powerful instrument of domination. … Free election of masters does not abolish the masters or the slaves..." -Herbert Marcuse

NoDebt's picture

I wonder if the big banks will send their lobbyists to push back on this one, or if they feel the fees are a greater benefit to them than the obvious souring of the entire "asset class"?

knukles's picture

You mean it's like Mrs. K's policy that I have 90 days in which to inquire and comment about anything I want?

imbrbing's picture

The timing on this is suspicious

kchrisc's picture

My thoughts are that just discussing this will cause a stampede to the exits.

GreatUncle's picture

The link.

Fully expect it. Noticed the charges and penalties also. All to prevent the vested interests from claiming all the worth as theirs. Very like the banking system whereby using plastic money they can claim all worth as theirs.

Pull the lot. Better to hold it yourself and probably convert it into something else like gold, silver, precious gems, anything but paper unless paper becomes cheaper than toilet paper.

I remember asking for physical redemption of gold 'held in an account' for me, a couple years back.  I had already bought the gold, and paid a premium for physical. Then when I requested withdrawal there was extra fees all over the place.  Another fee for physical redemption, fees for insurance, shipping, etc.   I could tell they expected me to say "Oh, you can keep it for me.  Sorry to bother you"

But I just said "OK.  OK.  OK.  You need me to liquidate $50 in my account to pay for it?  Can I do it while we are on the phone?  One sec..."

Another sign this shit is about to go down, I keep some cash at a "name" bank (employer insists on direct deposit for my paycheck at their institution of choice), and they recently visited to make a deposit into my savings account.  The teller started processing the deposit and then said "excuse me one moment sir" and left for about 30 sec.  Out rolls the bank manager to tell me "your savings aren't generating much of a return, I can connect you with our financial advisor on maybe placing those funds in a money market mutual fund if you're interested", so on and so forth, I ended up making an excuse about being in a hurry to avoid a "Jesus in the temple" incident, but this was one of the banks considered "one of the most stable" even during the "crisis".  Mind you, I don't keep much money there (we're talking sub $10K), and I've never had one of these suited dipshits interact with me for any reason whatsoever.

Next time it will be "sorry ur money is gone, sir"

fockewulf190's picture

You won't get a "sorry", they will hand you a piece of paper instead and tell you " you are now a shareholder of the bank".

Herd Redirection Committee's picture

"And its gone"

How do they expect 'bail-ins' to prevent bank runs again?  Knowing I am partially on the hook means I will panic sooner, and to a greater extent!

Failure plan = planning to fail

A reverse bank robbery.  Ironic.

imbrbing's picture

Sounds like a desperation move on their part.

I commented/asked for feedback about something similar about a month ago. Both myself and couple friends with large accounts kept getting unsolicited offers for personal or business loans from our banks, or requests to ReFi mortgages held at the same banks. It was really strange because we all banked at different places but got hit with the offers within days of each other.

I've also been getting calls about every two weeks from the wealth management unit of my bank begging to meet me.

Tangentially related, I've had a couple offers (indirectly) by people wanting to borrow money at 10%/year interest for private financing of home purchases because they were getting turned down by the banks at any interest rate, even though the deals were around 50% LTV, ie huge amount of equity already in.

I agree with you, there's a lot of very odd things happening in the retail finance sector, and I don't think any of this is good news.

They have no place to grow...and so must actively sell to anyone with even modest savings...

buzzsaw99's picture

I always laugh at those. They make it sound like they have financial experts on hand to "help". It's obvious they just want to take a bite.

beardeus's picture

These bastards ask me the same thing. The teller says, we keep about double what you have in our main checking account, that we should upgrade to a savings account where we can earn interest.  Althought they've never said money market account. They seriously ask EVERYTIME! I'm patient enough because I can see the girl become nervous as she tries to get me to switch.

It happened at Wells Fargo.

doesn't eliminating leverage in all its forms fix all problems of the scam infested 'financial' markets?

It's called locking the fire escape doors when a fire is imminent.
