This Won't End Well

Tyler Durden's picture

What could possibly go wrong?

  • Russell 2000 speculative positioning has never...ever... been more long.
  • VIX futures positioning is near its shortest ever.
  • Treasury futures speculative positioning has never...ever...been more short.


The 5Y is also at record shorts...


And in aggregate (2s, 5s, 10s, 30s, and Ultras)  - 10y equivalent positioning has NEVER... EVER... been shorter...


And crude...


And the USD...


Put another way...

Looks like the World Economy.

Wobly.... Just like my last hangover.

Then I puked.

Almost, but the "World Economy" has far fewer containers left on it.

This is all fake news.  The facts provided in this article are further proof that this is the greatest bull market in human history and it will keep going up.

DISCLAIMER:  Once the tide turns, I will be back on ZH to claim that this is the greatest bear market in human history.


Now there is no difference between me and Gartman.

And that you called the top, and that nobody could have seen it coming.
Same as all the rest of the "oracles".

Indeed something is terrible wrong here.

Everybody knows that green allways goes up not down.

I wonder who the captain of the ship called first, his insurance company, his lawyer or the Coast Guard ?

Maybe he did the Schettino. Grab his luggage, his #1 and the two accompanying whores and run for the first life boat to leave.

  It's days like this, where you don't even bother turning the TV on, beacause you'll bash the shit out of it with a bat.

  Every douchebag financial hack know to Man, is going to be running their mouths off.

  Maybe we can have a volcano go off or a meteor strike over the weekend, so the markets can go up another few hundred points.

Be careful what you wish for, I would not be suprised if, come Monday, things really start to break loose.

Not in a good way...... for paper investors that is.

This could go wrong...

This ain't good at all.

HOLY shit! ... I think the Clinton Satan Foundation just got to George Webb.

He wants to give BLANKET IMMUNITY to everyone inside the beltway! ........... Plus they get to keep all of the stolen money!

Well, you knew it was coming, I suppose. ... The trouble is they will just pick right up where they left off and just be more careful about getting caught.

Of course, that also means anyone who doesn't want them to get immunity gets a death warrant. ............ Thanks, George.

thot that a bit odd myself along w/hitliary turning up the volume a bit...better bizniz.

DuneCreature's picture

Odd? .. Yeah, odd alright.

It always looks easy to be brave until those two big burley agents are standing in front of you with a grin and a bogus warrant for something you have no clue about. .... It doesn't matter that you have no clue, you still have to deal with it or say exactly what they tell you.

I seriously doubt that the immunity horseshit was George's idea. ..... It's totally retarded, won't work and he knows it.

shame.  he'd pretty much gone viral globally.  i've heard at least 4 other sites mention him in vids.

should've fed it to wikileaks.

if he's encountered threats, i can forgive.  he has mentioned "if i end up dead."  my leaning is he has.

if he's only whipping up the masses...not so much.

let's see what Eva Bartlett has to say.

Good interview, GW.

Buckle up, this is going to start happening in the USSA. Not just BLM but with Hello Kitty too.

This is will blind side a lot of people. Hello Kitty is here now and more are coming. Barry (and Soros et al.) is arming them. I see them, they are trying to stay under the radar but I know what I'm looking at and they are getting weapons training close by me.

Good ole Barry OBaseTard Is going all out on exit.

the "cells" have been known about for a long time.  they've been building up since the 90's.  my guess...close to these sanctuary cities.

fast & furious here...  the D & D Webb talks about. 

wouldn't doubt if it happens b4 1-20.

My Dad's cousin in-law Georgia Stamm (married to owner who died) just died of cancer in Brookfield WI.

"Buckle up, this is going to start happening in the USSA. Not just BLM but with Hello Kitty too."

Yeah, & those Bastards are goona get their asses SMOKED!


Bubba Rum Das's picture

HELLO KITTY: "n. A Japanese psychological mass-casualty weapon, developed by scientists at the Sanrio Corporation; unleashed upon humanity in 1974 with the goal of subjugating the planet under Japanese imperial rule."

"The people of the United States have already formed their opinions regarding Hello Kitty, and well understand the implication to the very life and safety of our nation."

DuneCreature's picture

Well, actually the Hello Kitty I'm referring to is ISIS. .... Someone at ZH nicknamed the CIA front group the 'friendly, good Muzzie Brotherhood rebels out of Jordan' aka ISIS aka ISIL to Hello Kitty because of a notebook the leader was using.

Our Butt Boy Barry has been secretly flying them into the states as fast as he can. .. Arming them and training them. ...... These guys know combat and they have big buck backers, use armor and poison gas (Sarin). ..(Watch The Webb videos)

You will get your chance to prove how much 'smoking' you can do with a deer rifle if Hello Kitty gets loose.

Yeah VIX trading at $11 with Loose Cannon Trump about to get behind the wheel makes a lot of sense.

Luckhasit's picture

So, your saying that Trump is being setup to be the fall guy?

business as stusual's picture

Is there any doubt?          "We had to pull it" sound familiar?

14 days until Trump arrives.


And then yellen dumps and the market tanks - and it can blame Trump.

Fifty fifty, but I wouldn't say you're wrong.

ThanksIwillHaveAnother's picture

Long Puts on SP500 look attractive but will counter-party pay up?

if yellen is going to dump on trump, im sure he has enough of the right money people to counter it somewhat if not all..

Those are Janet's VIX futures and he ain't selling.

He stored them in those shipping containers for safe keeping along with his crude.
