    Here’s a question that might have you pondering: Is gold a commodity? More importantly, are we doing a disservice to the gold industry by calling gold a commodity? These may sound like silly...

Bush said "bitches" after every sentence he spoke.  But he said it silently to himself.

nah. tyler called this weeks ago~~~the volatility and called:  "buy cheap straddles"!  which i, as an  old [but no longer] options guy figure = buy calls when the market is sold down, buy puts when rallies start getting pooped

pretty aresome, really;  fade the bullies;  these are nice swings for this,  and spreading & hedging is permitted

BTW, I just have to ask this rhetorical question since no one else has: WHY DOESN'T GOLD EVER GET THE PARABOLIC MARKET ALGO-DRIVEN RAMP?

If this market rally was real, Gold would have soared. Let's see, Europe is going to recap their banks with money they don't have by taking on board toxic assets on balance sheets that are toxic themselves on the heels of European taxpayers that are in a depression.....

You get the point. It all makes sense. Right?

Gold will not soar.   It is a barbaric relic that has no value beyond jewlery. Get used to its downward drop back to its industrial value.

What was the buying volume in the last 30 minutes?

Selling pressure remained higher. Markets were oversold, bounce was due.

World is not ending today, DEXIA is not Lehman. DEXIA didn't go tits up. Lehman could have been saved in 2008 (which many experts suggested at the time) and markets would not have tanked the way they did in 2008 and 2009.

Next few days will tell what is going on. MS up 12% because MS is not gonna go bust on the Greek derivative trade?

So many possibilities, so little time to discuss it all. Just remember who is controlling the "market" and that the "market" is absolutely no reflection of the real economy.

Now, why would something be saved, when it was murdered for a reason? As for the next few days giving a tell, well, they will be every bit as fictional as the last few, so other than the next storyline emerging (with a few double/triple/quadruple head fakes), I wouldn't put much faith in them.

like the post, but zh can be a bit schizophrenic. complain about the algo momo chasers not trading on data, then say the jump is from the euro rescue rumor. nonsense. it's because if you do the charts on a weekly we were due for a rally.

also please use the hourly macd indicator as to where the short squeeze is going to happen or end. rather good with the wilders rsi

I consider myself a seasoned investor who always questioned the official lines (read spin). For more than 15 years, I participated on many blogs/bulletin boards. I learned a lot from them. But it is nothing like what I learned from ZH. I've been reading ZH for 2 years. I cannot express in words how much your site has helped me in trading better or gaining wisdom. I believe that Zh is a site that the establishment wishes that goes away.

I have one thing to say to you: Thank you for your selfless service!

this smells like a typical liquidity injection. everything goes up, including crude oil, (the all in one market is back). no point in parsing sectors, it was "all in" this PM, and in last half hour, which is when orders for tomorrows double and triple leveraged index ETFs have to be placed. now you and I know that having information like that ahead of time in no way implies that someone would share it, or steal it and therefore frontrun tomorrows moves, today??

and to make it all smell a bit worse, the FOMC cheat (chief) spoke earlier, and may have decided to light up the APPLAUSE sign. his gangster boss is in danger of losing the racket, and so there is great pressure to produce a bottom in this market, and get the whores and pimps working, so they can "tax" their efforts.

sigh, a cop costs a lot more now than it did in Al Capones day, about 4.6 million to be exact. all this inspires confidence, doesn't it. by the way there's a great new article over at Agora Finanicial on the cost of the SECRET government, a brief sketch of how it has grown, and a few stock picks for those who want to get rich on the new security state, for subscribers of course. I would provide a link, but the Feds watch those things.

180B euros is a lot of money for just one bank. GDP of France+Belgium is less than 20% of US GDP. So scaling this up by 5 times 1.32 $/euro, means this would be equivalent to a $1.2T bailout if done by the US. For just one bank. And France has its own problem banks.

This looks like a desperate move by France to try to forestall a run on its own banks. And even if France is willing and able to bail out its own banks, who is going to bail out southern Europe?

Germany is the key. The pressure on Germany to "step up and do the wrong thing" will increase greatly. Will they cave?
