Michelin in retaliation to downgrade S&P's cafeteria in Lower Manhattan to an unprecedented minus 3 Stars.


It's like spinning the wheel of fortune and holding your breath every time the bankrupt comes around. You know eventually you will hit it but hoping just not yet.

When you get past the hairy female armpits and excessive cheap male colognes the French are wonderful people.

There is a reason french men wear lots of cologne.

The "strike force" of the EFSF would be unable to respond to attacks against the markets of Italy and against Spain.

Oceania has always been at war with Eurasia.

It's probably time to read 1984 again to see what the next step in the playbook is.

Did I miss the ZH thread on Barney Fwank's decision not to seek re-election?

I am pretty sure that Barney gets it in the end.

GRPN -9% on a big up day. That dog needs to be shot.

mynhair's picture

Already priced in.

Except for the news.

Get ready to take a stand on gorilla paper - TBT or TMV.

fonzanoon's picture

Ha I took a stand at 35. Another one at 25. Then I took another one around 18. The Irony is it will take 600 billion in MBS purchases to "lower mortgage rates" to send it up.

mynhair's picture

Oooh, way early.  There is a strategy called 'trading'.

fonzanoon's picture

Thanks I bet you look good in your captain obvious costume. Shit happens. It's okay to laugh at it.

The long bond will hit 2.79%, for a week or 2.  Ignore calls for 2.5%.  Be patient, or nimble, your choice.

fonzanoon's picture

I have done neither, unfortunately

mynhair's picture

Been there, done that.  Back when TBT was 45.

Decay suks on these 2.  Toast in a month, just on decay.
