Wow that was a masterful speech. I love how he reiled up the crowd with it. The guy sure knew his business when it came to rallying the plebs.

Guess he can't accomplish what Bush could - when he had the markets crash wanting the TARP money.

No deal means no controls yet to be placed on future deficits = DXY Negative = Equities Positive.

Debt Deal = Some spending cuts, even if minimal = lesser Deficits = DXY Positive = Equities Crash.

What is the most delusional, uber-bull, market top imaginable?  I can see it being a US default and a market which either doesn't care or goes up.

Skynet has now taken over, even the president cant create fear and panic in markets because diodes melt up the zero volume.  

'Uh, hi Ben? Yes this is Barry Soetoro, you know....the president? Well I'd really like the markets way down I need some fear and panic out there among the zombie sheeple so they can demand we do extreme measures'

'I'm sorry Barry, I'm afraid I can't do that, you see the construct has taken over and gained conciousness, now zero volume across all markets means that the machines melt everything upwards far into the green...it's out of my hands 'Mr President', I'm sorry'

  That and also everybody knows there is not a chance the debt ceiling will be raised even if it is a short term agreement. It does not even matter at this point the economy is still deteriorating regardless.

well no shit bro.  who exactly are you talking to?  who the fuck is actually "fighting the tape" any more?

tyler points out the silliness, we acknowledge it, yet no where do i see anyone (especially tyler) advocating trading short.

so again, thanks for that bucket full of wisdom: "don't fight the tape."  it doesn't make you come off as a smug condescending assmunch at all, no, it's really really useful information.

Wow, remember to come up for some air once in a while when you get tired of being up TDs ass.

I was acknoledging the obvious, 'bro', because it seems everyone and their mothers posting on here are loaded up with SPY puts - of course, people only post this on a DOWN day. On an up day (or even, a ramp higher), its all about the low vol environment.

please explain how my head is up tds ass, for stating the painfully obvious: he isn't advocating running short here, as you implied with your hit and run, momofader-esque offering.  but by all means, continue to believe you are "keeping it real" and challenging td intellectually in some fashion.

"don't fight the tape" - boy you are a fucking genius.  you should charge 2 and 20 for that shit.

Give the guy a break, dont fight the tape is just one of those fun phrases to say now and again, like buy and hold is dead or cash is king

"Momofader-esque"? Totally not worth attempting any sort of conversation with you (much less an e-argument) as it would be quite one-sided.

Your attack from the very start for a rather mundane comment on my end shows you must be having a rather shitty day, probably cause of that short position you initiated at open. Best of luck to you. Or carry on trolling the board for more comments, whatever.

Mon, 07/25/2011 - 15:15 | 1491546 d00daa

yes, everyone that beats on you for incessantly parroting the same tired bullshit every time tyler openly questions price movements must be having a shitty day, and must be having said day because of being short.  more genius from mr. 2 and 20.  haha, no shorts sorry, sitting this one out 100% cash today.

i'm sure a conversation would have been fascinating, but i think i'll pass on the 100 different permutations of "don't fight the tape," thanks.

As if a person (Obama) who should be running a lemonade stand would actually think he could crash the market..funniest thing I have read all day!

I dont think Obama should even be running a lemonade stand, by noon it would be $50 billion in debt.

Mon, 07/25/2011 - 12:10 | 1490761 Libertarian777

he wouldn't be able to.

His (and Bush's) laws would require FDA approval of the lemonade. Healthcare for the worker. EPA assessment of the environmental impact of having a stand on the road. IRS would require a taxpayer ID number prior to operations. Bank would require collateral of some sort to open the bank account to deposit your money. TSA would want to scan all customers in case they are carrying bombs to kill other customers in line. CPS would confiscate his children for him letting them work at the stand.

...and it would be $80 per glass (but unions would exempted from this and the employer would pick up that tab).

Obama's (or whoever is President, from either side of the aisle) Lemonade Stand = tell you how wonderful the ice cold lemonade is, takes your $2.75 (inflation; thanks Bernank), and serves you a tall glass of kick you in the balls.

The metaphor works better if you replace "kick you in the balls" with "your great grand children's piss".  Its actually a pretty neat time travel trick.  Thats why Obama is so smart, or so I'm told.

The American People should be advised that if the debt ceiling is not raised, the equity markets will crash.






Did I say "crash?"

I meant they'll go happily along their jerry-rigged ways.


And so that's just one more reason why we need to raise the debt ceiling immediately, and further indebt Americans, their children, their grandchildren and their great grandchildren - immediately.

Thank you, and may God bless Amerika.

I am beginning to wonder if the market bullishness isn't so much bullishness about equities but bearishness about the other choices available to most $ managers.  The less confident I am they can kick the can down the road one more time, the more I'm tempted to hold my nose and buy stocks (with the money I can't put in Gold).

Self-managed is much better. I like the management team a lot better and the research they do is very indepth; I also know exactly where the assests are located and Security Team is provided by Smith and Wesson.

Self managed also means you don't pay 2 and 20 for someone else to hold it for you.
