A little less conversation, a little more action please
All this aggravation ain't satisfactioning me 
A little more bite and a little less bark 
A little less fight and a little more spark 
Close your mouth and open up your heart and baby satisfy me 
Satisfy me baby

I announce to announce my announcement of an announcement that some future announcement will announce that all is well.

As for now, that announcement is good enough to tell you all is well, resume vapor volume market levitation.

Interesting thing about changing currencies, it needs to be done as fast and unexpectedly as possible to minimise economic cost. So, you never know ...

    To the German people, Welcome to the Occupation.

    Here we stand and here we fight
    All your fallen heroes
    Held and dyed and skinned alive
    Listen to the Congress fire
    Offering the educated primitive and loyal
    Welcome to the occupation

    As usual, retail stocks could care less about Europe.

    Most are still bonering up off the lows, no pullbacks whatsoever.

    Well gee if there are no pullbacks, then how did they get to lows?

    There are no retail stocks anymore. The numbers these phony corporations put up are as far away from retail reality as possible.

    The Kepler observatory will pick up signs of the giant ball of ass each quarterly report comes from in a couple thousand years.

    Or do you really think each Lulu store really sells over $20k in inventory every day?


    Oh I get it when a report comes out saying a European announcement will be announced and Lulu stock jumps $2 that means this retail stock could care less about Europe. Oh no, I think that means this retail stock actually trades on BS European rumors just like the rest of the racket.

    The biggest charade is that US market participants are so stupid that they cannot look through this. Not the first time, not the second, not the N:th time around. You cannot find a better example of what defines stupidity.
    Anyone with at little experience of how EU institutions (does not) work, can tell that this will fail miserably.

    I've been kina thinking i'm the stupid one. I mean there hasn't ever been a clearer trend; market down: buy. Rumor in: ramp up. Sell. Market Down, buy. Rumor out, sell. 

    I really am the stupid one thinking protection of captial with fundamental factors against the entire system matters. Hell, I should just BTFD.

    I should have learned by now to sell the European close. When the morons are left to their own, the market will rip higher. Always.

    It's so frustrating that the capital markets continually give these morons the benefit of the doubt. Rally 20 handles on the s&p in anticipation of this news, and as always its just pushing the end game down the road. Just crush everything already

    As has been said many times on ZH before...this will continue until the market punishes the can kicking with an immediate 50 point drop in the ES. There is no workable plan, but the market has responded everytime to this nonsense, so why not keep doing it?

    gave you 1 uptick for the creation of the word 'SCHEISSKOFT'... sounds good..  no meaning required. just out of curiosity: Is it to be an adjective or a substantive?
