    I was expecting a few boring candidate statements of the U.S. Senate - AKA the World's Most Exclusive Club - but, boy, was I wrong. Just take a look at some of these gems.

Just a 'continuing' ... of a euro-farce yet to unfold in multiple stages yet

Need that big 'crisis' yet, to allow the big QE, bond-buying & etc

Still might be a while ... maybe later in August, maybe September, maybe even later ...

Our popular Euro-Football match of 'Tough Germanic Bankers' vs 'Latin Money Printers' is getting good ratings, so the show can continue for a while

People around the world believe it is a 'Real Fight' here ... though it is actually the Pro-Wrestling-Model at work, like in the US Presidential Pro-Wrestling of 'the Mormon' vs 'the Muslim' aka Gay-Basher vs the Gay-Arranger ...

As Jim Sinclair has long said:

« QE is coming. About that there is no doubt ... but not on anyone's schedule ... »

What is it about "headline reading algorithm" you do not understand?

Do you think the algorithm designers cannot talk to the media to tell them what is looked for?

STOP TRADING.  Get out of the market.  It no longer exists.

Um.. It’s called “Communications Policy”.

And yes, it is an engineering process.

The machines love it.  Investors, not so much.  The more retail investors check out of the racket, the more it's just left to the machines and becomes easier to "intervene",  with what was once called manipulation.

maybe he just chose his words wisely. 

Notice.  He never lies.  He never does anything illegal.  Ever. 


In fact this entire collapsing of the world economy... was completely legal. 

The only people that have broke the law are the occasional trader, pretty much every bank trader, and politicians.

The only people to blame?  The sheep.  Crime?  Embracing Idiocracy.

The fact that reporters are openly mocking Draghi (who looks like a cheesy Peter Sellers spoof character) only exposes the financial media for the fawning idiots they are.  Why did no one in the financial media (save Zero Hedge and a few individual commenters like Mark Grant) call Draghi on his bluff from last week.
