What about the USA?
Hollywood's greatest production of the year, maybe of the century, the US presidential Election. Get your popcorn, tickets are free - the circus is in town. It's the greatest show on Earth!
In a debt-fueled economy, it probably pays to keep quiet about any hard, moveable, assets.
Dismal data from around the world's economies - irrelevant. More promises from Europe - unimportant. Earnings misses and weather forecasts - useless. Knowing it's a Tuesday - Priceless.
Lets watch the VIX go single digit.
OOOPS! Not so fast there Tylers!
Looky here now:
No Yen carry trade for you!
The VIX is for pussies. FAZ me...
But last Tuesday was FAIL. Or was it fixed in the last minute?
It's casino, period. Moving the goal posts and changing the metrics for success is what your corporate oligarchs do. It's also known as tyranny.
The only way to "win" such a game is to 1) have inside information or 2) not play.
Yeah, last Tuesday sucked, but the Flux Empire has rebounded nicely. And today will rock.
It's such a gravy train, I don't know why you guys don't join the party. Actually, I do know. It's a Dr. Phil thing. You'd rather be right than happy.
Hey, I sympathize, we all want the world to conform to our little worldview. And it gets us angry when it doesn't. And then we seek comfort with all those others who are also angry. But a better response is to acknowledge that our beliefs are not matching reality, and then hang out with the winners.
I've been shorting VXX via puts since 2011. I can still bitch about it being a rigged casino.
You need to watch the POMO schedule. Last Tuesday was a NO-POMO day, which overrode the Tuesday effect. It's really easy if you track the right variables - 1) Is there a POMO?
2) Is it Tuesday?
3) Is there a FED speech?
Sorry folks, Monday is now Tuesday. We are shortening the week by a day as well, Thursday is now Friday...
Same point I made yesterday.
Do i still get paid for that missing day?
I think it would be awesome if this wasn't a conspiracy. Is there some simple reason tons of people would always buy on a Tuesday?
People are not buyers. They are muppets. Machines are buyers.
Forecasting this market is easy if you just put aside all your preconceptions and go with the real indicators -
Monday - 3 Billion POMO = up
Tuesday - Tuesday = up
Thursday - No POMO = down
It's a real time saver.
Can't believe somebody junked that.
Probably a prop trader pissed that I've made the secret system public.
There are occasional down days on POMO's and Tuesdays. Just to fuck with the little people.
This is the year an old saw bites: Sell in May and go away.
Read some of thes articles and try and put this circus into perspective. I dont think this country has ever seen such deception and fraud permitted by these banking whores! The media makes up whatever the hell they want to corrdinate with the game plan for the day but valuations and earnings are out the window!
I represent the Coalition to Carbonize the FED (CCF). A single nuke would do the trick...
Would the tungsten be ok after the blast?
Joe Biden's Son Appointed Director of Ukraine's Largest Gas Company!
Yes, but POMO is running cheap today.
HFT's going crazy trying to hold it up.
Which will be followed by
Who needs jobs? Who needs an economy? Who even needs reality? We have PRINTED prosperity now!
