wish i was as bold as I was in 08...sheeit...saw that H&S a mile away but this one confirmed.

1100 points in a few days; this is just a waterfall crash goin on.  As we're not rocketing north, one must assume that the QE3 is not sailing tomorrow.  The rally started a week before they announced last time and any leak like that would have muted this crash.  In fact the leak was probably SP downgrade plus there will be no QE3 tomorrow

Here's a good spot to bring this into the variables:

Mercury Retrograde   Mercury retro in Virgo and Leo  [August 3, 2011 – August 26, 2011]

At 03:50 UT (Universal Time) Wednesday, August 3rd, 2011, Mercury the wise communicator—and universal trickster—turns retrograde at 1°12' Virgo in the sign of the Virgin, sending communications, travel, appointments, mail and the www into a general snarlup! The retro period begins some days before the actual turning point (as Mercury slows) and lasts for three weeks or so, until August 26, 2011... At this time he halts and begins his return to direct motion through the zodiac.

Everything finally straightens out on September 9th, as he passes the point where he first turned retrograde. more at link

I wish I had the cojones to trade in this market but the Big Banks/FED made that impossible for me to do so back in 2009. When you know they have the power to make these markets swing wildly in any direction they want, you take your ball out of the game and walk away. :-)

I'm satisfied sitting in fiat to transact, buying metals on a monthly basis to store my savings. I fear being priced out of gold fairly soon with nothing left to buy but silver, I'm alright with that.

With GOLD up 70 and S&P down 87, the FED is trapped in a sense.  If they QE3, Gold goes up $100?  or more and if they do nothing, Stocks continue downward (trend in motion).  There is lots of momentum because many big players have NOT hedged their long exposure (the market fell too quickly).  And Primary dealers are huge option put sellers so they are getting squeezed.  The average Joe sixpack will get scared with moves like this and look to cash in his equity portfolio but there is one small problem for Equity fund managers, ie. there have just 3% cash. So if redemptions pickup, selling will continue. 

Actually the S&P downgrade gives the Fed cover to do NOTHING.  Maybe the Fed asked SnP to downgrade? 

Bonds are rallying because they realize the above idea and if we see the dollar rise it will confirm this notion.

While everybody is looking at great earnings, the market is really selling off because it sees a liquidity crisis.  If the Yen goes up much more, the Japs will be forced to dump bonds.  If Europe sinks much more, the holders of US debt will dump their most liquid asset.  China and Mideast are two other big players who will also dump.  So who will dump first?   Bonds away?  I don't know but we live in interesting times.

haven't seen declines like this since 08...given that every significant piece of news is leaked at least days in advance, I am coming to the conclusion that there won't be a QE3 anytime soon.

If that is the case, that simply hasn't been baked in.  QE1 was real fuel and QE2 was more fumes.  QE3 would have to be mainline injection to get a fix going here.  So many tasty shorts at 1350 and I actually called that top but didn't act on it. 

These slides have been simply brutal this past few weeks.  I mean 500 backed up by a 600.  There'll be a relief rally at some point and it will rip off faces, like that 1000 they hung back in 08.  However, at every turn up back then it was time to get short balls-deep.  I dunno here, but it seems really like we've hit a trend change in overall psychology.  When you see A/D ratios like this, just fking everything is getting bailed on.  In 08, gold went south hard, but now we see it spike bigger than USTs and even the gold stocks were spared the carnage today.

Tea Party has never wanted chaos.  OTOH if short term pain is needed to prevent utter destruction it would be worth it.  The Tea Party (and conservatives in general) have been warning about this for years.  We've taken the dirty looks, made the career-jeopardizing statements, suffered the ridicule of TPTB.

And you know what?  We were right.

We prepared.  We reduced our debt, increased our savings.  What did you do other than shoot the messengers?

Report: 81 congressmen going to Israel on break

Perhaps seeking a salty dip in the Dead Sea to end a stressful debt debate, nearly one in five members of the House in Representatives will use their summer recess period to visit Israel, The Jerusalem Post reports.

Of the 81 heading over, 55 are Republicans and 26 are Democrats, The Post reports. Half of the freshmen Republican reps - 47 of them - make up that group, and many of them will be visiting Israel for the first time.

And we are flat to slightly green on most miners.  No complaints here.

I think I will send Tyler my old DOW 10,000 hat. It is going to be a worth a bunch here soon.

Well played...I got out last year when the Dow was around 10,600.  Now at least I feel like I haven't missed any upside.

this is now a tech broken market, supports have been smashed.  a total fear trade.  even the ECB print job 12hrs ago did nothing, the market is factoring in that money print jobs will not solve the debt/insolvancy crisis.

Just think of the faux wealth that was just destroyed! And think of how much worse the US financial position is going to get knowing they blew 4 Trillion to pump the market and in a flash it is gone.

The Feds balance sheet is loaded with garbage and the housing collapse should now accelarate as people just start walking away in droves.

The point was to stall so the banks could make a profit on inside information and manipulated markets, as well as stack gold for the end of the game.  All in all, it has worked really well, for them.

I am replying to Clueless Economist's post earlier on :

Who Stated

S&P down 6.66%

6    6    6


GoThese Luciferians always love sending messages thru numbers as they think they are in control (even if for a short season).  Required reading for them should be Revelations 19:20 and perhaps some of them might repent.  Many will not and curse God in heaven instead, Not A Good Idea!

Buckle Up and put those chinstraps on this time

Expect some huge upswings here too.  One thing is a pretty good bet--companies can generate earnings regardless of what fiat those earnings are in.  S&P to zero?  Hell no.  It will grind and moan and fight before going down, i.e. at some point people will think risk of systemic failure is manageable enough to buy again.

But I want this fucking fiat to die.

I asked the girl at the lunch counter today if they were still accepting dollars for payment.  She just gave me a puzzled look when I said "Sucker."

all these fairly impressive drops as of late don't begin to make up for the dozens of unaccountable +100 and +200 point DOW surges we've seen over the past couple years, not to mention the several fortnight-long 'win streaks'. A year ago the S+P was bouncing violently and repeatedly off of 1040, like a cat on a hot tin roof. The experience of the past 2 years tells me they could do it again. And eff the debt crisis, sovereign debt, earthquakes, volcanoes, tsunamis, war, famine, etc. etc. etc.

Now there you go!

I like the way you say volatility.


Time to move back to the other side? (I guess so if you're unwinding the unwind - but maybe not for the same reasons.)


Always remember, you're only as good as your last trade. ;-)

5 days of decline during the time that the administration is "secretly" negotiating with S&P about the downgrade? Gee, guess nothing got leaked by Timmy G to his friends in Ball Street. You can be sure all the cronies were short.
