    Why is a Deutsche Bank mouthpiece suggesting “negative retail deposit rates or perhaps wealth taxes”? The answer is to (supposedly) stimulate our economies.

but but but very highly paid phd economists told me we are in a "growth recession" so everything must be fine

Yeah.  The Crash Course throttled me awake especially Fuzzy numbers.  We never left the recession.  We are now pointing our way happily into a depression. 

If the fuckers had just left it alone in 96 when the Boskin Commision got thier hands on it completely difference decisions would have been made along the way.  Of course Greenspan pumping the money gin after the tech crash was mistake number two but I am really surprised at the rate of mistakes.

we are 5 years into a global recession. once greece goes, countries like portugal, italy will go, uk will slip back into a depression, if it's not in one already; what's the upside here? oh yeah, speculators could make a killing~

this is a small part of the larger picture. this down cycle comes around about every 1,300 years and usually lasts about 230 years.

I heard today was "Risk-On" trading. :-)  Hahaha....  LOL.  Market gaps almost 200.  I would actually classify this short covering/squeeze as "Risk Off" trading and profit taking.

This gap up looks like a gap fill from last week back towards the 50 dma.  If this rolls over AGAIN towards the weekend... I would expect new lows.

My frame of reference for the economy is this full retard circle jerk abortion.

I used to think Hell would be full of pits and burning pools, but in reality it is this, the Devil gives you a 401k and you spend eternity trying to figure out this blasphemy of a market and trade it.

That's a hologram SD1. Their heads never get cut off, it's everybody elses. The hushed secret is that any top o' the pyramid Keynesian has been hoarding AU the entire time. Fiat is a joke that the majority of the audience doesn't get until the bouncer arrives.

"If Europe shits the bed we'll have far worse than a depression, we'll have a revolution."

HOW in the hell is a revolution worse than a depression.  I THINK a revolt would be a wonderful purge of the banksters, mobsters oligarchs and all kinda other pecker heads need an ass kicking. 


all Oligarchs, banksters, mobsters and vested interests on keeping our empire and fraudulant ways, feel free to junk away. 

Oh, didnt some of our forefathers mention about needing a revolution every decade or 2?  hmmm

When the next round of earnings come out next month to show misses and lower guidance, everyone talking how stocks are cheap will look like. Nut jobs.

Right now, it's all luck if youre a regular trader to profit here. You never know what lie or rumor will be bought so you can be long or short and still be wrong

In other words, toilet flush this sucker rally will be.
