More like Market Slingshot. How about some Warren Buffett jokes?
Ok. What do Warren Buffett and Jimmy Buffett have in common? They're both past their time and sing the same song over and over and over again.........................................
McDonalds released a new Obama menu. You get the meal and the guy behinds you pays for it.
McDonalds is naming a new McRib sandwich after Obama:
It's pure pork and double the tax...
What do you get when you cross the Godfather with a Lawyer (or Politician)?
An offer you can't understand! Yuck, Yuck, Yuck...
Warren could end up part of the bears' buffet next week.
Bernanke wants to manipulate the markets with his....oh jeepers we're having a 2-day meeting this time around....Mr. Wall Street just knows the all-powerful Fed is going to hand out cookies and ice cream after meeting.
Ben....Tim....go stick it where the sun don't shine. The market is God and you are false prophets. Sit down, shut up and learn who's boss.
Greenspan: "I have found a flaw."
They need 2 days because it's the annual Fed - GS gin rummy tournament. The winner gets to change his name and receive a government pay check for life. Watch it live on ESPN.
i bet you did, greenspan, its called YOU!
mr. zero stroke himself
Time for Becky to remind Warren what to do when the euro bond wide-on appears.
Market slapshot? Or the Greek effect......
Or Greeced rails.
-1.7% fall on copper.
Copper thieves will work 1.7% harder. There are an endless supply of empty, Bank owned homes to strip.
Bullish for meth.
I saw this today:
More people in US now die from drugs than auto accidents. First.
Copper's worried it's going to get a fuck off letter. And noboy will buy any copper wire to send it.
You know the drill, fade the market into the open, then the bots pump pump pump it like John Holmes on a Viagra overdose. Markets will undoubtedly close higher now - facts don't matter, charts don't matter, the only thing that matters anymore is how many processors you are trading against in Mahwah.
"pump pump pump it like John Holmes on a Viagra overdose." You can OD on Viagra????? Damn, maybe that's why my wife walks funny and I keep knocking over the lamps...............................
we have a stock culture and idiots who can't pass the sat's...think that is a coincidence?
WELL WHY NOT STAY OUT ALL TOGETHER THEN AND LET THE MACHINES RIPP EACH OTHER OFF?!?
THIS MADNESS WILL CONTINUE BEYOND WEDNESDAY AFTERNOON NO MATTER THE FEDSTER TALK/DECISION I FOR ONE STAY HEDGED SHORT WITH OPTIONS REST IS CASH AND PMs!
It seems to me we are close to lose our minds over what the banchero trash will or will not do we are as pathetic as they are, we simply KNOW JACK about WHAT the FEDsters will say or do or NOT!
It's a 50/50 chance and we are not in then position to KNOW, only the insiders, the PDs, KNOW!
It's a casino and our hand is against the house! We'll see!
I completely agree. The Algo's are only truly effective because they respond to us. If they started to act solely upon the "math" of another algo, it would be a blood bath; it would indeed rip it apart.
I know that if Ben prints with inflation up ticking as it is, he will be directly defying the fed mandate and a lynch mob (led by some lummox like perry) will storm his house...
Well ya SovX is unchanged considering theres what like one poor guy out there giving out runs?
Lets wait just a few more hours now for the real fun. Xover back in 800s eow no doubt.
yes, ZP, janus is anxiously awaiting your thoughts.
wake the fuck up, you lazy canadian!
feed me your wisdom!
tell the girls janus sez howdy.
My call for tomorrow: 3am futures stick save, flattish open, up 10-15 handles by the close...
Your call, my fear.... It's how it's been going lately.. I would like to see a retrace not only to Friday's meltup opening levels but to pre last weeks levels.
Calling this market (until it crashes) is a Crap shoot. I would stand a better chance at a Black Jack table.
yeah it is going to be like until it doesn't. It has been like that for the last 2 weeks. That is probably enough to condition the suckers. Now it could crash.
Besides, a small melt down to help european politicians to come back to reason and become more compliant to TPTB directives could be conveniant this week.
Yup--but won't be selling my puts.
For those who shorted t-bonds, we salute you:
You Fuckers are so technically sexy, Bet you have some 'girls' thinking with ya?
"The council has estimated demand [for gold] from China may double in 10 years. The forecast may be “too conservative,” Cheng said."
Bernanke should just go for it and say he'll buy whatever the markets needs in terms of treasury, no limits.
It's like a poker tournament, and Bernanke gets to rebuy everytime he goes out. And then there is China who won't play his hand- "Clock!"
More panic buying in T-Bonds again. Appetite for fiat notes is simply voracious.
Who buys the paper of the buyer of the paper?
Now at a theater near you:
NYT: Fed Runs Risk of Doing Less Than Expected http://nyti.ms/orAlIv
Cue Krugman hit piece....
The pop on Friday was from the shorts reacting to the rebalancing for the Triple Witching. Not so much hopium as fear. The shorts need to get some cajones like we hedge fund managers that use the rallies to set new shorts against, not cover or cower in fear. :)
5days of panic meltup rallies, now you'll get 2days of panic meltdowns...till the FED. But, all they will do is flood the EZ with USD's and twist etc.
Copper getting hammered looks like a China warning shot again.
Everything is looking f*cked. Greece will default very soon.
Only ones really hurt by a Greek default are the German and French banks (and all the banks that have any financial ties to those German French banks - ie all of them).. Therefore, the EU will do EVERYTHING possible to prevent a default. I would buy 1yr Greek bonds if there was a relatively easy way to do it.
"The more I see of the moneyed class, the more I understand the guillotine." - George Bernard Shaw
Nice. Always enjoyed Shaw.
It's obvious that this mess is going to come down to a Photo Finish. It will just like the famous photo of the Yalta Conference. Roosevelt, Churchill and Stalin, deciding how to divide up the world, after they get rid of Hitler. WEe'll get to see who gets to sit in who's seat.
Yes but after Yalta Roosevelt died and Truman, who was kept in the dark, said you're going to give who what??? Screw that!!!
We ended up with the Cold War but that was better than flying a communist flag over the USA. Well at least it prevented it for a little while.
Good point, adr. There is no honor among theives. They still do the Bait-And-Switch the good old fashioned way. I think of the scene in the bar in "Goodfellas". The central banks don't pay off to mooks.
