Hitler Is Long The USD, Gets A Margin Call

Tyler Durden's picture

It's been a while since we had a close encounter with Hitler and specifically his trading prowess. Today we learn just how truly powerless the German is when faced with the terrible trio of Geithner's "strong dollar policy", a CFTC barrage of margin calls, and the fine print of various precious metal ETFs. And of course FX sellside "recommendations" by the TBTFs.

One of the best movies you will ever see. The Downfall

Bernanke should trim his moustache so...

"Don't worry, Goldman would never trade against their clients"

Goldman trades TO their clients.

XitSam's picture

Goldman uses their clients when margin calls happen, not their clients' money, their clients.

OMG, I laughed our loud.

The only fucking reason it's funny is that it spears the Imaginary Nash Equilibrium supported by a Widespread Normalcy Bias essentially creating a Theater of the Absurd of Reality.

You are taking the fun out of it

Who needs Hitler when we have I'llbombya?


From the piece:


UPDATE: Whenever this Obama policy is raised, it cannot be emphasized enough that “secondary explosions” — attacking those who rescue victims of an inital explosion — has, according to to official U.S. Government dogma, long been a hallmark of The Terrorists.

MF Global would never do that, until they did.

Blythe Masters denies silver manipulation: "It's not part of our business model, it would be wrong, and we don't do it!"

I thought it was interesting how she used past tense in that sentence.... Most people would "It is wrong!" not that "it would be wrong". She sounded a bit nervous when she said that part as well, if you go back and listen she hesitates in her voice a bit. Sounds like she is worried about the record keeping part of it as well as Margin Stanley was just fined by the CFTC for 5$ mn for sloppy OTC and IR Swap record-keeping.

I find this a bit scary, since all he is shouting are the names of the international Jewish bankers and Jewish finance "advisors" (As he probably did in real life back in the days).


It is like Germany pre-ww2 but on a global scale. Scary stuff.

IOTW, Hitler was right. And not only about Jew-banksters: see also Red Empire, Czechslovakia, Yugoslavia, etc. Don't worry, though; before sticking that gun in his mouth, he said, "I'll be back...and next time, no more Mr. Nice!"

Saw it at the theatre in 2005 and couldn't agree more.

Sorry dude but it is not the downfall but THE RISE of the Reich!  The world & joos will face another dangerous maniac due to the puppet masters financial destroyers provoking another war against humanity.

Not a bad parody.


Better than this antisemitic garbage...

As a huge devotee of both of those productions, you're an idiot for including them in the same thought.  Conflating them as you do makes me think you are one of those dumbasses who think both of them are about blood and body count, which true about neither.  Go back to sucking on batteries.

Speaking of precious metals, Gold inventory that is registered for delivery jumped more than 15%


flacon's picture

In a way you have a point... "delivery" means they move from one vault to the other in the same building on the same basement floor. True delivery is when we see armoured Brinks trucks lining up outside 33 Liberty Street to haul it away. 



CalibratedConfidence's picture

The total chart shows gold inventory is down about 3% YTD. Your right tho, it's just another room in the same building.

I have never liked a single one of these.

I'm sure they just make him wistful for what might have been.

Hitler is a breath a fresh air after following Bernanke’s market all day.

Offthebeach's picture

Wonder if Bernanke has in his office a couch and a .25 automatic ? I don't know if you can douse a corpse in a ditch within NYC limits with diesel and burn it. Maybe in New Jersey at a back office building for The Squid.( Put a little more productivity in the GS plantations staff. ).

Vlad Tepid's picture

I'll loan him a 12 gauge and sell him a slug.

Dr. Engali's picture

I'll enjoy it for both of us.

the one where he does a rant about Lou Reed recording w/ Metallica is the best. I think I'll go watch it now-always makes me laugh

is there a chance you might be too stupid to get the joke?

Anyone notice every single fast money meathead (aside from finnerman who deals with the safe stuff like JPM) was going long gold and the miners tonight?

Yep.....Made me start worrying and thinking about cutting my positions in gld and slv.

I have felt like that on more than one occasion with the crooks known as the CME.

I find it amazing how relevent hitler can be today.  Thanks ZeroHedge!

Long-John-Silver's picture

and I find it interesting that the National Socialists (known as the Nazi Party in 1930's and 40's Germany) are winning elections all across Europe once again.

Silberadler's picture

Except Germany you might add.

Strange isn't it ?

Just noted that quite a few posters here pull out the swastika each time they feel like the Krauts are doing something wrong.


The clip itself : priceless. Nice dubbing.

This is what you get for placing your faith in fiat, even if it is the reserve currency.

Somewhat OT but relevant to the week's news; Hitler on Walker's Recall Election...
