Stocks Give Up 'Putin-Folded' Gains - Tumble To Last Week's 'NATO Threat' Levels

Tyler Durden's picture


Last Thursday's comments from NATO's Rasmussen on Russian incursions into Ukraine sent stocks reeling... and then the pre-announced end of Russia's military drill sent stocks soaring. All the while Treasuries oscillated in a relatively tight range, unmoved by equity's manic moves. Today, as Russian convoys sit 'aggressively' at the border, Israel plans new fight with Gaza as truce ends, and Iraq is escalating, stocks are fading back to last week's NATO levels (as the dollar, long-end bonds, and gold are all sliding).


We bounced off this level earlier...

A manic period is usually right at the top of the market. Crash coming in 3...2...1

From your lips to God's ears.  Been waiting years to buy in cheap (yeah, yeah, and missed out on the bull).

Sorry, celeb obits are the priority. War, depression, stock bubbles can be safely ignored:

Moar war (and golfing) will fix everything.

Your on to something there Doc.

Bomb craters turned into sand traps, enough to give Krugman a wood(ie).

OT; Who lies the most on their resumes?  People in financial services.  Least shocking headline ever, perhaps, but at least it's official now.

"So, you won an olympic medal in Volleyball?"

"Yes, I did"

"It says 1980.... weren't you 12 years old then?"

"I'd rather focus on how proud I am of the of the hard work I put in to attain such a prestigious accomplishment."

Pffffttttttt. Who needs a big old expensive purse to carry the BernankenYellen's digital funny money?  We CONsumers can carry that in our phones. Real estate is where it's at:

Perhaps Yellen should just buy truck loads of purses. Or would that make him gay?

Why write articles like this when they're voided 2 hours later. Waste your time doing some real research and less useless reporting
