    Here’s a question that might have you pondering: Is gold a commodity? More importantly, are we doing a disservice to the gold industry by calling gold a commodity? These may sound like silly...

Chinese people cannot even pronounce EURO correctly, they can only say EUWO.  Phonetically it is YOUR-WOE and that is exactly what they mean.


To be honest people who write in these papers/websites could now easily manipulate the system (more than it already is) with these "China will buy everything rumours"... I mean come on go ALL IN on a down day then put some shit on their website and too the moon it goes.... I am referring to the FT here.

I like how during the weekends, the whole Eurozone's main focus was on Greece, but somehow Italy managed to go behind everyone's backs to strike a deal, rumor or not, with China. Reminds me of how Merrill did the same thing and fell into BAC's arms during the whole time they were trying to find a solution of Lehman. These effin bankers and their dealings, their blood will be on the street some day.

Yep - and it reminds me of how BAC has new claims to make deals with every week - and how wonderful it is for US to have EU as distractor item #1 for the US masses - maybe the chair satan can sneak QE3 in without anyone but Bill Gross noticing...

- and maybe the US masses can avoid future tax hikes - and maybe US austerity - i.e. cuts in medicare and social security can wipe out US debt, which accelerates ten times faster than revenue - ie. the FED and Wall Streets fiat ponzis and printing - without any cuts to the US war machine, which after all "secures" the flow of oil which simultaneously passifies and commits the US masses to serve their empire - for yet another day...

until the chicken come home to roost and the fact is faced that in the very final though greatly delayed end - all that supports US empire is 300 Million US tax slaves - motivated by nothing more real than expectations.

I think you fail to understand the new normal in the equity nonmarket.  

Selling causes markets to rise [bid lifting into the rise to catch the short sales sold back into the bid], and buying causes markets to fall [bids being pulled and falling away to known price points fixed to a fourth decimal place where they are picked up by criminal syndicate Wall Street bankers].

So the joke is on you, buddy.

No that's just luck. PE? Come on, that not even relevant in this mkt.

There was a morning rebound, then selloff. Afternoon rumor ramp up, then selloff, then same rumor again ramp up into close.

Co's who pay interesting dividends are closely followed as you know. Check the relation and value of the underlying commodity present and past and a pattern will reveal itsself. You need to go back at least 3 yrs and compare in order to get a good understanding and have a close look at patterns at extreme moments... I only follow 9 stocks in total year in and year out from three diff. segments. Now, as soon as present P/E drops in to YOUR (historic) comfort Zone look at the pattern. Time of day is crucial - THESE ARE NOT LAST MINUTE OR EARLY TRADES. I dealt with Suncor. Good luck!

I'm happy with my purchase of HFD.TO last Thursday (Sept 8th). It has since gone from $8 to $9.  I'll perhaps hold for the next month or two.

I'd like to thank the ZH community for my profits. (hopefully!)

In China, money is better spent on constructing dozens and dozens of empty cities with their our airports. I doubt they will buy them spaghetti bonds.

Yes, they were bailing out Uncle Sam for quite some time, but not for the love of shitty bonds, rather to support their biggest customer. You know, like a drug dealer supports his biggest customer knowing that he still retains some credibility from the glorious past days and knock out punch, just to keep himself busy and unharmed.

Haahahahhaahahah, What a joke of a trading day. What a joke of a "market".

If you want to have some fun take a look at Tofutti brand's stock TOF.

Can anyone explain moves like that? All year it has been huge swings up and down. Dropping 10% one day and skyrocketing back up 10% the next day. I am sure there are hundreds of stocks that show this kind of wacky behavior.
