Goldman Under 100 pips From Being Stopped Out On EURUSD In 24 Hours, As Expected

Tyler Durden's picture

On Friday, when we learned about Goldman's latest FX recommendation which said to "go long EUR/$ with a narrow stop at 1.35 for an initial target of 1.40 (currently at 1.3715)", we said: "Time to sell the EURUSD with both hands and feet, not to mention with MF Global-type leverage: that uber-contrarian FX indicator, Goldman's Thomas Stolper, who has not had a notable call correct in the past 2 years, just came out with a long EURUSD call, calling for a 1.40 target and a 1.35 stop loss. Yes, this means Goldman is now selling EURUSD until 1.40 and will begin buying it at 1.35. As a reminder here is how Stolper's last EUR/$ recommendation ended." Sure enough, 24 hours later, Goldman is under 100 pips from being stopped out: at last check the EURUSD just touched on 1.3596.

If you trade Goldman FX advice, consider yourself gone full retard. Unless of course you use them as a contrarian indicator.... especially Stolper.

No seriously: This has gotten to the point where Goldman needs to do *serious* damage control. There is literally no one left that doesn't laugh at their guidance. That's not a problem you bounce back from in a month, a year, or even 5 years.

Goldman has become one of the market's most obvious and compelling fades.

If you play your clients, and the general market for suckers -- it can be enormously profitable over the short term. But long term? This is how you destroy yourself boys. keep it up. We've all seen this movie before. Perhaps you haven't?

Gold man speak with forked tongue.

It must be obvious by now that this guy isn't an idiot; he's lying.

Either that or he's George from Seinfeld who just happens to have figured out that his instincts are always wrong and goes against them.

What was his bonus last year?

The markets will do what it's master wants.  Any questions?

Which leads me to wonder if the Masters want that 11/11/11 high on the SPY which occurred at 11:00 am (line chart hourly basis) to hold or are they just teasing us ? 

btw that 11:00 am high could also be counted as a 5th of ending dia. C bitches!  Looking for lower from here on out.

Well....with the market barely down on the EUR/USD, and if Golman is a buyer at 1.35, then expect the DOW to hit 13,000 by the end of next week.

Not even sluge-hammers can take the market down thesedays. The robots have a firm handle.

Goldman isnt buying at 135.

That is just their public call.

We have no idea what their super secret VIP letter at $100,000 annual subscription is calling.

Anyone who understands no volume equals Ben's robot's are in charge. Trade long. No volume melt-ups are  the new normal.

Except for the Wall Street honchos punching it up to get their bonuses.  Once those babies are pocketed look out below.

So....if goldman is long gold publicly should we get out?

Must resist urge to speculate.....must resist.

EUR/USD should clear 1.37 tomorrow easy on the backs of all those rosy Q3 Euro GDPs.  Today is the set up to get long EUR/USD.  MSM has scared everybody that EZ is in a recession, but Q3 should still be good, if rearview mirror, and this should provide relief to the desperate wannabe-bull suckers who think the GDP q/q should be negative.  I predict a nice gap up overnight.

So much for this artucle, no longer 100 bps, now that Europe is closed the ripfest can now continue.
