Nah, just a bunch of daytrading morons.  CNBC was ready with the positive spin.

Very true.  ZH bandwidth issues and server failures are always short term bottoms on the ES.

i'm unfamiliar with that quote; and when it comes to the white-hot rage from the fairer sex, i admit i've received more than any tolerable share a man should be asked to the 'nothing worse' is a little wanting. 

have you ever been on the business end of 10 razor sharp claws?  the situation is terribly difficult to's all hell's fury and worse, WAY worse -- you can take my word for it or ole bill shakespeare's; either way, the point is the same.

It is as aggresive as Bernanke could get the board to agree on. For what that's worth.

Slaughter was right about the leak... came about 11am... gold moved up from 1722 to 1752 while the DJ traded sideways and choppy for a loss of about 25pts.

The equities holders have just been thrown under the bus to save the bondholders ... and, to save the US from ANOTHER credit downgrade...

EUR basically unchanged since the announcement as of this writing, although it's been having a spasm similar to the S&P. Except the S&P is...ahem...not unchanged since the announcement. Unchanged since previous close, more like. For now.

TARGET rates were supposed to add confidence? The Fed doesn't set rates. They target them. A giant nothingburger.

FWIW, I'm fairly confident the Fed will target rates with a giant monetization gun.

Thanks. Now want to take a guess how much that would be? Because until 2013 at the rate the USG is creating new bonds, they'd have to monetize over $3trillion. I'm sure theyll release that number at any moment now.

Always a little slow after a heavy lunch, actually a slow start scares me - means someone thought about for a few minutes before pulling the ripcord anyways.

You mean thought about it and said fuck it I am not pulling the ripcord, just ride one in!

Everywhere today the media has highlighted the fact that even cab drivers are buying gold. They are using this to highlight that we are in a gold bubble! I would counter that cab drivers are some of the most informed people I know.

Not sure about buying, but if the cabbies are selling ...

Like Ben Davies said, everyone is talking about it, but who actually owns it ?


The sheeple think they have this bubble thing figured out so they don't own gold.
