With Bank Of America On The Verge Of Breaching $5.00, Our Question Of The Day Is...

Tyler Durden's picture


... how many of the top 50 holders presented below, will be forced to sell once we get a 4 handle? We are certain of one thing, however: Paulson's LP are simply delighted that he added to his loser position in BAC. Delighted.

I hope it doesn't gap through $5 overnight. I want to see the trading action right around there.

It might be possible to push the market around here or there occasionally, but in the end the market is too big for any one person or entity, even in this day of extreme wealth distributions. All the kings horses and all the kings men might try to hold BAC above this crucial point, but in the end the technical situation suggest BAC might be headed towards a date with BAnkrupCy.

I live in Charlotte (BAC headquarters) and just told my girlfriend that BAC is going under $5 on its way to zero.  She told me she would rather buy 7 snow man mugs that she was looking at online for $5 over a BAC share.  Maybe $1 will bring some buying power back in.

Failing that, there will be a new directive to stop naked shorting. You know it will happen soon. They can't allow BAC to drop below $5.

I don't think you've won quite yet, but I think you soon will.

However, I also think that lots of government funded "services" we take for granted will in the longer term disappear. Examples include the postal service, comprehensive public schooling, and public transportation. Whether that's good or bad is a matter of interpretation.

But yeah - you win.

With my Feb BAC puts and FAZ accumulation --- it, it IS beginning to look a lot like Christmas! 

(music swells)

It's beginning to look a lot like CDSmiss
Ev'rywhere you go;
Take a look at the news at Ten, their saying once again,
"The Euros a mess and banks are falling low."

It's beginning to look a lot like CDSmiss,
The Fed has fun in store,
But the prettiest sights to see are the PUTs on your options tree
When B-A-C hits the floor.

A bag full ammo and loot and pistols in their boots
Is the wish of Zero Hedge's darling men;
Bunds that go kerplop and serious market shock
Is not the hope of Henery and Ben;
While Harlequin and Redpill yell "let it spin!"

It's beginning to look a lot like CDSmiss
Ev'rywhere you go;
There's FAZ growing on the swell, looking to turn into gold as well,
The physical kind that cares not what the markets sows.

It's beginning to look a lot like CDSmiss;
Soon the bells will start,
And the thing that will make them ring is the arrow and the sting
Piercing through Goldman's heart.

The relative weakness is very obvious today too. I wonder....if it breaks below $5 will it be violent, hard, and sudden, or will it just drift through and below.

Hard to imagine it would be the latter. Instead it seems more likely that there are a lot of stops (both in place and mental) right around there.

But then again, do any of these funds really have to sell if it breaks below $5?

There will be a battle drawn on this stock at $5 because it is so vital to the market. Definately worth watchng. Forced selling is going to be as stealth as they can make it look. Make no mistake this is going to eventually test Dodd-Frank. It is my contention Mr. Frank decided not to run because he knows his bill is a cluster and that tax payor funds will be once again needed. Good luck trading.

and on a technical basis, what ever that's worth, BAC's RSI weekly basis suggests it's about to launch higher if only temporarily.

Maybe Bank of America can rename and become Bank of Mexico. There are plenty of Drug lords looking to launder money. Giving Credit cards without Social Security numbers was a start for BAC.

This rule that institutions cannot hold stocks trading below $5 is not as inflexible as you think.

Well Im sure that if a stock happens to drop under $5 they dont have to by rule liquidate it within the hour or they lose it all, but it presents problems.

Under $5 and they will have to dump it. I would like to go into a BAC lobby and take a dump.  BAC - favorite bank of illegal aliens.

BAC went from 5.25 down to 5.03 today.

I say let it get to around $5.11 to $5.14, roughly the 38.2% and 50% retrace marks.

Then watch as hilarity ensues and gravity does its thing.

Bac will be a $50.00 after the reverse split. Of course they will have to do it again sometime down the road. But the important thing is that the institutions won't have to dump this extremely valuable company.
