The Washington Post is very disappointed...


The Dow tried (and failed) 8 times...



Here is how Bob Pisani explained it...


VIX with a 10 handle could not get Dow to 20k...


It's been since The Fed hiked rates...


Small Caps ended the day red, Nasdaq surged...


On the week, Nasdaq soared (best week in a month, 2nd best week post-election)...


The Dow's moves were all USDJPY driven today as once again it was Buy The Fucking Payrolls Dip day...


Bear in mind that The Dow had gone nowhere since Nov 2014 until the election...


Notably S&P 500 (and Nasdaq) also broke to fresh intraday record highs...


All major S&P sectors closed green on the week with Healthcare (Biotechs) outperforming...


Gold is 2017's best performing asset for now...


The USD rallied today post payrols but was already moving higher as Yuan tumbled overnight... The USD Index closed the week unchanged...


Bonds sold off hard today but the entire curve (except 2Y) ended the week lower in yield, led by 30Y yields dropping 6bps to end the week perfectly at 3.00%


Crude closed the week lower with silver and gold outperforming...


One last thing...

Forget DOW 20,000. With this latest pullback, it is probably your last chance to buy 3 digit Bitcoin ever. Tell the grandkids that you were an early adopter and made world history.

DOW 1000000!!!  Bullish!  (until it isn't)

PT's picture

Always thought one should bet a tad short of the round numbers but I was never in a position to try it.  It looks like a significant number of people agree with me.

Dumb ass. If you have been paying attention for the past two years you know that this is a bear trap.

The break above 20k will provide the first legit short opportunity we have seen in months.

Loyalty is ignorant, it's what the wolves who produce hope the sheep will graze on. Diversify and perhaps your grandkids won't have to shovel the coal. 


Draybin, do your best Hoover impersonation on my dick, and you still won't convince me to " buh teh Satoshi's, stoopid Hedgies. "

No. And you are going to buy the fucking Bitcoin moron. You're going to love it and you are also going to force everyone else to buy it too.

They will pound their faces into the brick wall till DOW hits 20k.

***There is a new software they will be using on Wall St for the DOW. The application will be called the DOE. The DOW DOE software will assure the market hits all goals set by the Fed***

Is that how Bob Pisani's nose got that way? Pounding it into a brick wall.

Is it me or does anyone else notice something strange about the closing number?

HokumYTrader's picture
HokumYTrader (not verified) Thought Processor Jan 6, 2017 4:06 PM

Which number?

spastic_colon's picture

i thought the 1999 in 1999.63 was strange.......

as long as "they" keep averaging 1%+ every four days all should be good / s

They are going to slow it up to .5%, wouldn't want anyone to get suspicious.

Don't feel so bad.  I lost almost twice as much as you and was short just slightly longer.

Staying short for more than a day trade is a fools game. short spikes especially before noon, get out by noon and you will do better. There is too much fucking market rigging done over night. Most days there is an early shortable spike then a decline then back to the mean. Dont short on jobs or the Fed. Short actual spike not just when you think things are too high. Just because it hit a high number is no reason to short it can grind higher while you get ground into dust as I said above all they need is a BS narrative. 


I shorted the opening spike this morning and was out before the 10 am eco numbers. 



Remember 90% of maket particpants want things to go higher and over time they do. When you are short time is against you.

I've been short October 19, 1987. Someday the market will hit 0, but I suppose the catalyst for that would be a far greater concern that getting my money back.

SomethingSomethingDarkSide's picture

Load up on NUGT with any dry powder still left.  This rally is USD/JPY fueled and carry trades are a temporary boost, since they are in essence short term trades.  Unless Trump drops NIRP day 1, this market is on borrowed time.  Literally borrowing yen to buy another day of non-catastrophe!

Been short all my life...

On the bright side, I rarely bang my head!
