Who cares?  BTFD'ers out in full force this morning.  Doing as they have been trained.  Not even smart enough to wait for the bottom of the range.

Yay.  All it took was gov't subprime lending.  On a local radio station, a local GM dealer brags that they can get you into a new Camaro with a 450 FICO score.  The kicker - you don't have to make a payment for 6 months!  Bankruptcy?  No problem.  Not kidding.

wow, 450? somebody stop me!

It can't go straight down....there are always knife catchers and weak shorts.

Who cares? The bottom for the day is in.

After four whole minutes of selling at the open, it's been a relentless grind up in the US equity indices, thanks to our friendly HFT machines.

They're only looking out for our best interests. A rising stock market makes Mr. and Mrs. Serf happy!

Bullish --- See the huge drop in prices?  Benny now clear to print.......  Benny needs double digit inflation......

Who pulled the rug out from under everyone?  It really tied the room together, did it not?

I love how some of the respondents used terms like "deflation", and "contraction".  Guess they must be sending a signal to the Fed. Bank bonuses are in jepordy, must push out QE3.

Shouldn't inventories be growing in anticipation of the holiday season? Those thanksgiving sales are supposed to start in a few weeks....

A. I don't buy his "leveling of the hump" explanation for a damn minute.

B. The Port of Oakland doesn't matter, let me know when the Port of Long Beach and Port of Los Angeles go on strike.

Seattle does to some extent, he is right about peak, don't know if it's gone forever. It's been a very weak ramp to the holiday season.

With this bit of bad news, the market immediately rejected the selloff.   Watch out shorts.   Never underestimate the power of the gov't to manipulate markets when it serves their political agenda.   UP is still the agenda.

yep, a lot of stuff trading above the open.

Bullish for equities apparently...

We opened up with a TRIN of 10.3 after closing yesterday with a 3.2

And we have had 43 consecutive trading days with -1000 TICK readings.

Any wonder why PNRA, CMG, LTD, etc. are pretty much unfazed today?

Look at the ISM price index. Deflation anyone?

Shit.  Someone's lying.

We're eating more than we're shopping. This has to stop. I call on the Fed to force Americans to do more shopping

Wondered why we're off the lows. Now I know. Good is good and bad is good.

I recently read a pretty compelling report offering a bull case for falling producer prices.  As inflation pressures fall businesses can stop worrying about costs and focus on investing and growing... The report shows the strong inverse correlation between producer prices (6M forward leader) and PMI.  Prices declines lead increases in PMI by approximately 6-9 months. 

I am making this point b/c the poster said that falling prices is bad for stocks but this point is in direct contrast.
