It seems potential WWIII trumps a buyback-driven exuberance in stocks...

US indices losing it... S&P almost unch

 

As Facebook plunges back into the red...

 

and Europe is in trouble...

 

Here's what did it...

The order to use force against civilians has already been given, and if this military machine is not stopped, the amount of casualties will only grow,” Russian Defense Minister Sergey Shoigu said during an official meeting in Moscow.

Looks like we will get an opportunity to BTFD every time one Ukranian soldier bite it.

Headbanger, if you were an Al Qaeda ally in Syria, you could get a shoulder-fired missile--for free. Gun shops are only for people who lack political connections...

Mrs. Debtfire Yellen may have to PUBLICLY, DIRECTLY & OPENLY start buying shares of publicly traded companies if there's any risk of any of the indexes closing .000001% red on the day, despite trillions in monetization by the Puppet Fed already, trllions in corporate buybacks already (yes, trillions; look at the all time high-level of corporate bond/debt issuance - Thanks Bernanke & ZIRP!), 5 years of non-GAAP corporate financial/earnings engineering, 5 years of Mark-to-Unicorn FASB valuations allowed as per CONgressional decree, and despite all the other bag of fraud tricks being used to prop up this joke of a "market."

Just do it, BernYellen...it's inevitable.

Oh no... Not another caliber to feed!!

But could I get a 30-30 lever action instead?

Winchester or Marlin though?

Older Winchester would be my vote.  Something in the early 80's before production was sent to Japan.

Indeed, just buy the dip.  War is bullish, also no war is bullish.  So either way this goes the market will go higher.  

 

We are clearly going straight back to new highs, this is free money.

Holy free fall batman. I'm watching the NASDAQ emini 100 futures free fall like I've never seen 'em fall. It was up 1.71 percent at the open....down 1.2 percent in 15 mins. This shit was too over the top to make sense w/ the Ukraine thing going down...all based on a 7:1 split. woo-wee.

Looks like the earlier smash in PMs was just a move to create breathing space for such an event.  This is so manipulated it is not even funny anymore.

War should be good for jobs when Europe starts drafting young people....

 

I wonder when they'll give the signal. First they reserves and after those 500 soldiers are picking up the rusted weapons from the past, they'll draft the kids and start building the new killer weapons....

all govts have way to many people to support with social services and not enough money - so they need to get a few million killed off to balance their budgets - what better way than ww3 - that and Fukushima - and perhaps Ebola - etc

A few months back, I visited a museum about the STARLINE.

Very nice,it was about migration to the US and how those ships transported the people to Elis Island.

It's kind of a copy of the one in New York.

But there the story was also about the start and the beginning of the liner and how the unemployment in Europe created all those tensions.

Migration was the catalist and once America closed it's doors they had nowhere to go but stay in Europe.

And tensions mounted. The main group of immigrants where the jews, everybody keeps thinking that they where rich bankers but that was not true. It where poor jews from the Ukraine that flooded the streets and actually caused unemployement for the rest of Europe because they worked below minimum wages used back than.

And that got me thinking. Why the sudden open borders policy in 2000?

I believe in preplanned actions. I believe that by opening the borders they already targeted mass unemployment and crisisses.

So now, they want to close all the borders again... and in certain regions tensions will again rise.

Also, you are seeing right wing groups popup in every country.

It's like a perfect copy from the 30's. And that was not like Hollywood showed us.

Hitler didn't suddenly exist and Hitler was a good guy for the Germans. They all profited from it.

A bit like Obama is to the Americans. But if you live in a middle eastern country for example, you look to Obama in a totally different way.

GOD MIT UNS vs. GOD BLESS...

There's no side but surpluss population has been a problem all over history when economies started to fall.

that, and granting China most-favored nation trading status around the same time then offshoring our industry to them

From Facebook report:

 

Management expects that year-over-year advertising revenue growth rate will decline due to tough comparisons. Total expenses (including cost of revenues but excluding stock-based compensation) are expected to increase approximately 40.0% to 45.0% for 2014. Capital expenditure is likely to be in the range of $2.0 to $2.5 billion for 2014.
