...35 points wider: the highest since April 6, 2009. But fear not - credit has a reputation of being always wrong, while equities (especially short covering squeezes) are always right.

There are headlines all over the place that Warren Buffet (bailout Queen) and Donald Trump are buying hand over fist.

I trust these to be factually accurate reports of their activities, and even assuming that I didn't (which I don't), WTF cares what Donald Trump is doing?

Next thing you know, CNBC will have a headline that reads "Livermore & Nieferhoffer are BTFD" scrolling under one of their funny money honeys.

I have my Dow 11,300 hat on - the same one I wore in f*cking 1999.

I agree, Krugman is an incredible asshole.  And he's helping to loot a lot more than some PS3s and Nikes.

Hear anything about BAC running out of money at its California branches? Supposedly they are not accepting withdrawal requests, only deposits.

Naomi Prins just tweeted that BofA branches in Los Angeles can only accept deposits, not withdrawls.   "System problem".  I'll say!

End result?

Everyone with auto-deposited pay who banks at the Bank of Lynching America Countrywide switches to live checks.

Well, surely you could get a withdrawal when they have enough deposits paid in off of other people? Duh!

That's exactly how banking has worked at some points in time in economically distressed countries.

Am I the only one that asks the question? What sense is in a CDS on US Debt? Don't you even see that it's a rigged game, a senseless bet? If you bet on horses or sport you have better chances. It's pure gambling and it's pure stupidity in one. Sheep betting on the color of the wolf that is circling around them in the night.

On the morning of Thursday, October 24, 1929, stock prices plummeted. Vast numbers of people were selling their stocks. Margin calls were sent out. People across the country watched the ticker as the numbers it spit out spelled their doom. The ticker was so overwhelmed that it quickly fell behind. A crowd gathered outside of the New York Stock Exchange on Wall Street, stunned at the downturn. Rumors circulated of people committing suicide.

To the great relief of many, the panic subsided in the afternoon. When [there were rumors that Buffett and Trump] [a group of bankers pooled their money and] invested a large sum back into the stock market, their willingness to invest their own money in the stock market convinced others to stop selling.

The morning had been shocking, but the recovery was amazing. By the end of the day, many people were again buying stocks at what they thought were bargain prices.

On "Black Thursday," 12.9 million shares were sold - double the previous record.

Four days later, the stock market fell again.

Richard Bove, an analyst with Rochdale Securities, is downright pessimistic, saying concerns over Europe and litigation are just a symptoms of larger problem, one that is systemic.

“This is a continuation of 2008,” he said. “We are finally coming to grips with the fact we have a massive debt problem that needs to be dealt with. This is not a problem for our grandchildren. It is our problem. We have a financial system structured on a bankrupt currency and that system is now breaking down and a new system will arise to replace it, but we don’t yet anything to replace it. “

Mr. Bove said recently moved all his holdings into cash.
