The story behind that horse is quite sad. The Bernanke Put was a promising horse but a bit to frisky, so his owner decided to make him a gelding. Instead of improving the horse's racing what ensued was a string of last place finishes. Any good horse pyschologist could have predicted it. As soon as the announcer would say "They're off!" poor The Bernanke Put would fall deep into depression.

It's gotta be a biggie.  I was surprised today that things were so quiet and calm after all the fireworks this week.  Doesn't feel right.

That brings up an interesting question:  If two or more "people" select the same avatar and moniker, is there any way for anyone posting here to know that such schizo behavior is going on?

So credit markets lead.  If so, are these low rates signaling 1) no worries, buy stocks, low credit demand or 2) alarm, siren, red alert, trouble ahead, bankruptcies coming, sell stocks?

Nope.  It's Fed manipulation, force investors to yield, hope for wealth effect, don't make borrowing costs any higher, more of the same, synthetics.

Real Homes of Genius – The bubble city of Santa Monica. When shadow inventory dominates prime cities and foreclosures still sell for $739,000 and are listed with 935 square feet.


From Dr Housing Bubble....the Doctor knows.

<<Now these cities in the Westside of Los Angeles are clearly in bubbles.  I hear the argument that people are still buying so therefore there is no bubble.  A bubble is not defined by how many suckers continue to perpetuate the game.  A bubble is defined by unreasonable prices driven by mania and not underlying economic valuations and fundamentals.  Bubbles by definition pop. >>

The Bernank's horse pulled up lame (Timmy cut its tendon).

Shot the nag and sent it to the glue factory (the horse).

BOA horse pulling up the rear but the house paid off anyway.

i liked Cash BiCheZ and my dad thought Long Bond had a chance so we boxed an exacta together and both horses were late scratches.  we thought Family Values might be entered instead, but the trainer decided to hold him in the barn for another week

Initial Margin Call looked pretty good here, dropping down after a layoff and some breezy works.  people didn't think the Crimex Barn would open him up, here, but he closed like a mofo, proving that class beats speed, one more time

If I didn't laugh, I'd be crying.  On another note, I think I'll watch "Brazil" again tonight.  Lots of laughs (thank you, Terry Gilliam) there, too.

See, all fixed.  In less than 1 week, the can has been kicked to September, and the markets finished up for the week.  Great country isn't it?

  Remember the good ol days when the can kickings lasted a whole fiscal year instead of till the next bill was due? That was when, oh yeah way back in 09 and 10, dang the years go by!  it seems like only yesterday.
