The USD is in much worse shape than the Euro. The only solution in the US and Europe is the printing press. A silver breakout is in the works. If countries leave the Euro, it will surely be a test for fiat currencies.

it's all true except for the part about the printing press.  and that part would be fine if there were quote marks around solution.  won't stop a relatively hairy bear market but it doesn't mean they won't try.

Probably just a technical glitch with the markets, it can't really be a sell-off.  Every day on Power Lunch they say things are getting better.  So they are, right?

The Bernank is already tackling the vexing problem of E = mc2 (and the downside of contagian, velocity and leverage) in a bold attempt to disprove it or jerryrig a workaround.

The Bernanke is trying desperately to find a way to move faster than the speed of light, so that he can travel to a planet that won't be filled with angry mobs trying to guillotine him.

Was this a fear based sell off or an excuse to take profits from this cray run up? I would think the former. And if markets are forward looking, wouldnt tomorrows bond flop be built in already? Full disclosure-i hold DOG amd have been getting bitch slapped

it was a bear fased sell-off.

it was a YU 55 based sell-off.

it was a prepping the market for a major dive sell-off.

it was a sell-off.

a 3% move in the equities yielded me +20% on the long VXX (VIX) today. With regression to strip out relative move, and a couple of other variables which inhibit capturing the pure residue/essence of short-term fear.....

That gave me my highest Shitting-of-Pants Multiplier since Japan fucked-with and failed on their JPY, and sent the first tidal wave to the Western asset markets on Aug 4. In fact, it's higher.

The Hedgies want their Dip n Rips to add a point or 2 before the end of the year?

Well, they may not get a tapering sell-volume signal, to buy this bitch back, even though they may think they have one when the time comes..

The primordial inertia of today, was not nearly spent in the selling. This is stronger than anything I've seen in 3 years.

Let's watch.

I never eat at those places but I broke down last week and used a free coupon at Burger King.  I shared a few tiny pieces of "meat" with my cat, and he threw it up.  That shows you how poor the quality is.

Believe it or not, over here:
1) hunting with wide dispersion shotgun = perfectly legal
2) hunting with bow and arrow = illegal

That's just nuts. I prefer to hunt with a bow. I don't care to hunt with a gun,although I will if need be.

Can we start calling "bulls", "deers"?  It would seem more fitting.

Yes you can...cuz as anyone whose ever hunted for them will tell you "I shot him five times and he got away."

Yes - pre-ground, hemetically sealed meat packets are morally superior to animals you have to kill and prepare yourself. America: if I don't want to know about it, it ain't real.

Yes I do. I would never kill for killings sake. Hunting is my prefered method for putting meat on the table.  If I figure all my costs in it comes to 40 cents per pound and it's all natural.

I respect that. If I could hunt for my meat where I live I would do that. People eating meat from McDonalds or supermarkets are eating meat that most likely came from a suffering and boxed in animal. Hunting deer usually saves them the pain of dying of old age, as long as the properly aged deers are killed, and as long as the hunter is a good shot. 

I don't get hunters who just hunt for sport w/o eating their kill. Sickening.

One thing that peolpe don't know is that the meat that they are buying in super markets is injected to enhance both color and flavor. Actual meat looks nothing like that.

Another thing that people don't understand is that if the deer are not harvested they overpopulate and do a lot of civilian damage as well as crop damage.
