Bernanke is no longer in control. He's been running scared since the tsunami and still doesn't know what to do. QE3 kills the dollar and brings on killer (literally) inflation levels. No QE means S&P below 900 and Obama hits the unemployment lines himself.

In terms of gold or crude oil, has the stock market made any new high since march, 2000?

I thought everyone here gave up on "predictions" of a manipulated and irrational stock market??



1. Bear Market

2. Bull Market

3. I could give a fuck.

That should be the headline.

The market is neither overbought nor oversold, it is overmanipulated.

How can something be 'extremely oversold' when by any real measure its at least 50% overvalued?

Overmanipulated Ponzi.

You've got no idea what you are talking about, SheepDog-One.

Plenty of traders will tell you that the short term is easier to predict than the longer term. Nothing goes up or down in a straight line. There are always retracements. That's the way it has always been, that's the way it will always be.

When markets are 'extremely oversold' on technicals, they rebound. Short term traders don't care about value, they care about trend.

There's a ton of pro's out there who use technicals. Even guys like Marc Faber talk about them. Watch Paul Tudor Jones' documentary 'Trader'.

Is the market 50% overvalued? I wouldn't doubt that for a second, but traders look at technicals. Save the fundamentals for the buy and hold investors believe Wall Street analysts, will get their heads handed to them in due course.

Don't criticize something you don't understand.

Tyler/Sacrilige can we have the links to out last few posts back under "My Account" back.  It's probably hard on the database, but it certainly is useful for tracking replies.

Thanks for your consideration.

So I am supposed to consider buying into a stock market that is manipulated, levitated, high-speed traded, and over-rated in order to accumulate more paper dollars whose value is about to evaporate? Why exactly would I consider doing that?

Well, I declare!  Haven't you heard?  It's the only real option available.  Everyone is doing it.  No interest in a savings account.  Treasuries suck.  Bonds suck.  You HAVE to get on the merry-go-round.

this market is called the "QE3 being priced in" market...After which, there is no where to go but down.

Wed, 08/31/2011 - 20:28 | 1621142 Djirk

to me this looks like a traders market, long term trend down......despite QE 1 & 2 (and threats of QE3 the market is around 20% off the 07 highs and the recent peaks were 13% off the 07 highs....look out below when the debt/inflation from QE remains but the benfits are gone (until wage driven inflation kicks in)

Really.  How do you know?  That's what people here have been saying for two years and I've been thinking along those lines up til now too.  I still think that your view and all of the supporting evidence is still valid but it doesn't seem to make any difference.

I know we're all a little sensative here about what the market is and isn't and I agree with most here.  It is a sham.  However, it is what it is and that's what we have to work with.

Well said rfbear!

most if not all bloggers here know manipulation/fraud/corruption/ is everywhere!  IMHO,  'you cant change the primary trend' mantra is still valid in the end..Any sane, rational, intelligent person here @ ZH should be upset and sensative about the markets.  But god dammit! It's still our manipulated markets!!
