angela merkel undressing for financial reform?
She takes her pants off for no one.
after what happened with the greeks and the troika, who could blame her?
This is only Friday humor if you didn't listen to it back in the day.
Otherwise, nothing humorous about the losses incurred by listening to this tard.
You must mean contrarian genius!!!!!
When is his view on 2012 out????
under duress. not under her dress. (shiver)
Wow, seems Mr Byron Wien has some serious trouble dissociating fantasy from probability. I suspect his condition is exascerbated by an insufficient number of bullets in his head. Could someone assist the old man with that?
She? You sure?
Not even Nicky?
This video says otherwise...

The Careless Whisper Afternoon Trivia Question
Who currently owns the pistols used in the Alexander Hamilton - Aaron Burr duel?
(hint: Both Hamilton and Burr were founders of competing banks, and both banks are the only two banks that offer tri-party repos.)
Trivia Answer will be posted below in a few minutes.
Chase and BNY
and what type of bank would take pride in owning and displaying such a murder weapon?

Hey Blackstone- give Wein a year-end bonus......
Pretty impressive to be wrong on so many counts- a chimp would have gotten at least five correct.......
he completely missed the advent and popping of the new .com bubble all in one year.
To be fair though, it's kind of hard to predict market behavior when there isn't one.
Oh, and thanks for the imagery of Byron's grizzled Wien, Tyler. Thanks a lot.
Now you know how worthless Byron's predictions are, and how equally worthless his views on anything current must be as well. Love the housing comment - spoken like someone who does not have a clue, but believes reality responds to "the power of positive thinking," or similar horseshit.
Ya, goes right with be the ball..
Good to see ya Ned
Amazing that this guy makes six figures a year for this kind of wrongness...seriously ZH should start an analyst/firm scoreboard which tracks the buy/sell accuracy of these clowns...the world would be a better place if people could see an accuracy %...even weathermen are now more accurate through the end of the week...analysts are up there with hurricane forecasters...
over the years ByronW has done ok ..... guess you & everyone else here is perfect.
I encourage some of the hot shots here to go head-to-head over the years with Wien instead of engaging in cheapblogshots .....
Pay me 500k a year to do it and I'm totally down for it.
A .100 batting average is not good enough to stay on the team in any league. Maybe Mr Wein wasn't a complete asswipe earlier in his life, but that time has clearly passed.
6 figures? I would bet 7
Give the man a bonus
The Hamilton - Burr pistols that were used in the duel are currenly owned by JP Morgan Chase. Hamilton founded Bank of NY (now BankofNYMellon). Burr founded Manhattan Bank (now a part of JP Morgan Chase). Manhattan Bank purchased the pistols in 1930 and now JP Morgan Chase prominently displays the murder weapon in its museum.
Only two banks currently offer tri-party repos on behalf of the Federal Reserve Bank (of NY). They are BankofNYMellon and JP Morgan Chase.
I resent the use of the term "murder weapon". I think that you could argue that the winner of a duel acted in self-defense. In this case, Hamilton rigged his gun by giving it the equivalent of a hair-trigger, and missed with his shot. In any event, Burr was not convicted of murder.
If I am not mistaken, Hamilton was the first American central banker.
"If I am not mistaken, Hamilton was the first American central banker."
There we have it!
Bring back dueling.
he was the first (to my knowledge) american politician of high rank born out of wedlock, indeed the product of adultery. he even may have had significant african blood. http://robinganemccalla.blogspot.com/2010/08/was-alexander-hamilton-blac...
jefferson was prez the year of the duel; burr was vice-prez at the time
i have an old half-cent from 1804, the year of the duel
burr was tried for treason in 1807; john marshall sat as judge; some negativity around burr's raising a private army to drive the spaniards from mexico and florida and encouraging folks in the louisiana purchase to join his new republic...
@ Burr's 2nd
Good points, all correct. Nevertheless, I'm not willing to say that JP Morgan has on display, in its museum, "the pistol used in self-defense" by Aaron Burr.
Come on Tyler, do it!! NEOSERF has the idea of a lifetime. THE SCOREBOARD!! So all the large wallets can sit around and tell each other who is kicking whose ass. I can see the neighborhood christmas parties now. It will be a new era into "when EF Hutton speaks....." . NOBODY SHOULD LISTEN. I would say that we can then see how much better we are all doing rather than paying some MSM MOPE driven low life trained Advisor, he sucks...Come on Matey!!
"Oh did I say 2011? I meant 2012"
Shit! Even with all the huffing and puffing from the PPT this idiot is a loser. Where would this circus clown be if markets were free and fair.
One of the Tylers is a fan of Varg Vikernes?

How can one guy be so wrong about so many things? I mean really. how does he even have a job. Another one who is always wrong is Abby Joseph Cohen, yet Cnbc keeps marching her out. Though I like Wien, he is an idiot. How can anyone follow him. You know what is going on, it is like in the world of poker, the older guys are just totally out of touch and are not winning anymore. The young, internet poker players are winning all the time. We need someone predicting who knows the internet. Wien probably doesn't even know how to use email.
is that all there is?

The folks here off South Main Street were laughing our asses off at these absurd predictions last year when they were made. We're thankful for them now as there is little else to laugh at but all this so called wisdom as it is rendered nothing more than passing gas. And folks wonder why we're pissed these folks collect the coins they do for producing this crap...
Too bad I couldn't have got him on the other side of that TSY trade as I posted the 10yr would go below 2%.
It's hard to make predictions, especially about the future.
"10. Under duress Angela Merkel leads the way in European financial reform."
"10. Under duress Merkle leads 2 world leaders to the chopping block."
There. fixed it.
10. Under her dress, Angela Merkel leads the way in [fill in the blank.]
“There are many methods for predicting the future. For example, you can read horoscopes, tea leaves, tarot cards, or crystal balls. Collectively, these methods are known as "nutty methods." Or you can put well-researched facts into sophisticated computer models, more commonly referred to as "a complete waste of time.” - scott adams
