Has the market ever crashed?  Sorry, I have no memory past the last football season.

time to load up on tvix. if you'd done it two days ago you'd already be up 100 percent. if this market crash happens soon you can take your several hundred percent gain, and throw it all inphysical gold and silver. the market price of gold and silver wil crash just like in 2008, but the rise after the crash will make the price rise since 2008 look like peanuts.

Do we really need charts to tell us that it's all fucked and could collapse any moment?

The collapse is inevitable.  The guessing-game is precisely when it happens.

Did the charts predict that G Pap would suddenly announce a referendum?

No but they did predict a pullback was inevitable sooner rather than later.

I am sure that Bernanke will do everything in hist power, including licking someone's dick to avoid another crash.

exactly, for if he were to allow a repeat of the Great Depression (which he dedicated his academic life studying), he knows he'll be the last FED chairman.

His name is Ben Bernanke

He's the head of the Federal Banky

He loves thin air

He prints money from there

And from Nathan he gets a big thanky.

There once was a guy named Bernank

Destroys the world with dollars not tanks

One day he turned gay

And looked for a lay

And wound up with one Barney Frank

Good points baby_Blyth and SheepDog.  Could you both be right?  In other words reset the system, but only appear to be the last chairperson, while maintaining ultimate control?

if and when they own most of the land and gold, then the "system" has served their purpose.  they can then let it crash and buy steal the rest.

It's no longer a market but a global poker table.  That's the main problem with modern finance.  It is no longer pairing buyers with sellers.  Instead it pairs strong hands with weak hands.

 

government bank bailouts incentivizes this pernicious structural mutation.

- some 250 points up in Dow.... NOT RULE AT ALL.  We can be all stupid we want and buy MF Global stocks.

- some 200 points down in Dow...Rule 48, rule 49, all the books-rule in place.  Ohhh may be you can no go short in banks because political leaders are afraid of markets speculators.

So, SYSTEM IS CORRUPTED IN THE BASE. MF global is in bankruptcy althought some banks recommended to buy... WHY FED ACCEPT THIS ?  WELL, I can imagine...they are thinking global economy is a BIG CASINO and they are the owners, good, very good, BUT the casino owners are not GOD.

Now China, USA, Europe...they think they are GOD. But they aren't, oh yes. How much time they are going to play this fucking game?

Bullshit, when I play poker there is a house ( government), that ensures winning bets are paid, and the rules (laws) are followed to the tee.

 

This is more like playing poker where the house (government) shows your cards to his friends (banks), refuses to let you leave the table as long as you have money left, and if you catch runner runner flush on the turn and river, changes the rules so 7 2 offsuit beats everything.

Based on that logic after the August/Sept massive down and upward volatility, Ocotober should have witnessed an epic crash, instead we had the best October in decades, I am not saying a crash wouldn't happen, but predicting such events ia crap shot at best.

I have not heard the Internet portion of this..

The EMERGENCY BROADCAST SYSTEM is to take control of the nation's airwaves on Nov 9th 2011.. All radio and TV and Cable/Sat broadcasts will be pre-empted by this 3 minute long test...

The internet aspect is HUGE if true.. The above is ABSOLUTELY happening. The internet portion I have not heard from anyone but this You tube video..

sooner or later we'll get an east coast tsunami as well:

There is a very good case to be made for that on multiple fronts...but being too bearish in the midst of TALF, TARP, TWIST, QE1, QE2, and maybe QE3 can be dangerous.
