When one sees a chart such as the one below, what can one say but... Bull Market! And "Fed-generated Price Stability" of course. For the first time in history, the Dow has moved up and down by over 400 points. And in the last 5 minutes we see a 20 point drop in ES. All in a day's work for schizophrenics. And now, we are all reminded yet again that Europe still exists, as do its markets, and tomorrow should be a truly fantastic day for "The Price Stability."

Oh, and look where volume picked up. Shocker, we know.

Also not unlike the month of October 2008 ... just remember that market bottomed out in March 09.

Must remember stock market can remain ridiculous longer than one can remain solvent.

Tech pros, what do your charts say for this ' pattern ' ? Thx

Matt Miller, (Bloomberg), argued with Ira Epstein that the market is cheap and he's a buyer at this level.

Ira told him he's wrong. Nothing has changed and we are in a BEAR market.  Hello...... Nobody's home in Matt's head. 

He also co-anchored a report saying how insiders are buying at record levels.  I emailed him and told him to read Barron's page M13.

I should have told him to read Zero Hedge, my bad.  When the market trades at a PE of 8 or 9 it will be worth a look to me.

We are not being paid for risk. Unless we add to PM's. 

On another note, Shorts not allowed in France. Hmmmm. Goldman Sachs upgrades ALL banks on the same day. Hmmmm.

Is it fair to say this is a short covering rally and the trading desk of GS made money today burning them.

nothing at home on top of Millers head either... that hairline is retreating faster than the hookers that prey upon traders...

I remember watching Bloomers and CNBS during the last level off in 08/09... any guest that started talking TOO much doom and gloom was blindsided by a free safety blitz and was cut off faster than Betty Liu could say sring a srong a sixpenth...

I've seen this up and down movement before, wild gyrations, huge swings, etc... ends badly:

TA won't matter tomorrow. If the HF redemptions are massive, every rally will be sold into, commodities liquidated, and the equity market will move within a +/- 200 point range. Just a guess at this point in time because fundamentals still play a role.

I'm not a pro so I don't know for sure, but check these guys out .
They seldon update the public area, but when they do sometimes it's possible to catch up to date content for free. Like today, it seems they are calling a bottom for the french CAC index today.

Oh, BTW don't even bother registering, i've no idea why but it seems fucking impossible to get an account.

Robos are in charge and doing their job. 70% of trading is done by robos.


I'm sure that there are people reading this that recall the days when the market use to only trade within single digits then it went to double digits.


Now the robos can handle triple digits moves as a normal intra day movements.


Will we soon see triple digits as the "good old days"?



Who is that peon that is feeding the ROBO information?


That peon is making all the traders look like idiots.

So, how much down tomorrow? Everybody will be holding over the weekend right? He he!

Id fight Gandhi's picture

Each day gain is still met with a net loss down.

So 450-550ish down... If there be a pattern

MolotovCockhead's picture

Yeah right, good news usually come over the weekend! TPTB don't want the Sheeple to buy on panic and hence leads to a market bubble!

Buck Johnson's picture

It's going to be down tomorrow, it has to.  Because nobody and I mean nobody wants to go long with all the rumors running abour BAC, Societ General and other banks needing backstopping and maybe going into bankruptcy.  Remember Lehman Brothers CEO was on CNBC saying everything was fine and less than 24 hours it decided to file for bankruptcy and such.  They will say it's all good up to the last minute, that is why you will never see the CEO of Lehman Brothers ever going back on CNBC or any other news channel, he would have to explain the unexplainable.

That chart is going on a black t-shirt, but I better wait until tomorrow, because it might get even better.

Is it a tougher or easier case for QE now with these wild market swings of 5%? I really dont know...but if they can make +500 point DOW days stick, wheres any panicked pleas from the peasantry to please take more of our money to make the bad man go away?

hedgeless_horseman's picture

The case for QE has little or nothing to do with propping up the equity markets, and everything to do with supporting the treasury auctions. 

Tyler's Russell 2000 Third Mandate for the Fed is merely a side effect of Dr. Bernanke's treatment for a sick American economy, and a secondary derivative of QE at best, but we can still trade it.

This. Basically the Fed has to keep rates at Zero to allow the government to keep borrowing. Problem is These rates cant last forever. Think about what happens when 16 trillion in bonds have a 1% rate increase.. compared to 14 trillion bonds having a 1% rate increase. Really the Fed should raise rates and force the pain and force the government to stop borrowing.  It is only going to be worse once their is more debt to deal with.

sikscreen em'  They'd sell.  Of course, you should price them accordingly, $20 on Monday, -5 or Tuesday, $50 on Wednesday, no sales on Thursdays, and Free for All on Friday.

For the love of GOLD, if only there were an alternative:::::there fixed it

Urbanelf use some of that money to buy a nice AR15, bunch of ammo, food and water purifier and youll be surprised by the calming effect it has making all this far less relevant.

There is alternative, you can always buy BAC shares.
