Bears need to be careful.

RTH is green during this selloff, led by LOW, TGT, WMT, HD, etc.

Robo says 'bears need to be careful', but no warning to bulls after his clownishly bad call to get all-in leveraged at DOW 12,700 for the certain massive rally upon debt ceiling hike passage.

Dilithium Crystals are about to go parabolic.   And if you don't like the volatility of the crystal market, you can always buy mining stocks on Rigel.

STFU RoboTrader with your scolding know-it-all posts and obscure 'green stock' snapshots, you were all in long at DOW 12,700 for the huge debt ceiling passage run up, remember that?

I smell another Gold/PM margin increase coming from the JPM manipulated garbage dump.

Smiddywesson's picture

They will have to use their precious margin increases in pairs, only to see gold prices return to trend in one week.  They know that is the new normal.  So I would be surprised to see another margin increase real soon, they will raise margins only when they are desperate.

That's some fancy footwork: "assigns a higher probability to our bear case than bull case, preventing us from becoming increasingly optimistic".  A lot of words to basically say they're pessimistic.

Holy Cowabungabunga.

I just realized that the bull-bear duality is no different than the red/blue, lib/conservative and all of those other distracting seperations. In this mad-house, one would look pretty spastic, going from bull to bear to bull to bear....

Plus, inquiring minds want to know, if all the news is so bad and and any of this re-search really matters, why are indices at the levels they still are?

Now you're getting somewhere grasshopper. :)

This is also why Gold and other PM "bugs" are so important to the system. Gives the other side (which ever side that is) something to hate and thus something to believe in. Insanity draws all its energy from within.

Oh regional Indian's picture

Interesting CD. Veddy interesting. I need to go looking up all my other, en-trained dualisms right away.

Why give the system any pow-her at all, hmmm?

So many of our spiritual and emotional energy leaks are programmed and conditioned into us from birth that we are not aware of them unless we dig deeply within and question EVERYTHING.

I like to think of these energy leaks as the red, blue and green lights on various electronic devices scattered about the home and office. The 'machine' might be off or idling. But the energy is still being sucked out of the system and over each 24 hour period of time this 'loss' might equal 20-30% of total energy consumption. As the insanity progresses and escalates so do the energy suckers.

The popular press now calls those small energy consumers "energy vampires". Very apt description of the overall state of energy loss.

Cognitive Dissonance's picture

Ron Paul is a necessary counter balance to the machine. His stature grows as the insanity grows because the balance must be maintained. I'm not saying he is controlled opposition. Just that there must be a growing Ying to the dominate Yang in proportion to the overall imbalance.

As more and more people awaken to their insanity and opposition grows, the majority must clamp down and oppress even more to strengthen that side, thus keeping it all in relative balance.

Note the use of the word 'relative' here. I'm not talking a 50-50 balance of energy. More like 90-10. As it shifts to 80-20 the system loses stability. We are moving there now. Thus the majority must press down even more to try and bring it back to 90-10. It is a losing battle because the world is re-setting.

Yes but is there an alternative? 
As far as I can see any social structure needs this deception circus to function and give people boxes to think in.  No boxes = no society


Cognitive Dissonance's picture

In my view there is no alternative if we remain within this paradigm. You are essentially asking, is there any other way to run an internal combustion engine than by way of some form of hydrocarbon fuel. Of course the answer is NO because the machine is designed only to use that type of fuel.

What is going on in the world today is another opportunity to create a new paradigm. The real question is, are people now, or will people become, desperate enough to seek alternative ways. The current PTB rules because we don't wish them not to rule. We could all make them go away in a few weeks at most if we truly wanted them gone. But do we wish to deal with the consequences of those actions. At this point NO.

Maybe tomorrow, maybe next week, maybe next year or decade. But not now, not yet.

They want to push this thing as high as they can this morning because they know the Mercosium at 12:30 will be a dud.

Smiddywesson's picture

This is not a market, so bullish or bearish calls don't matter.  TPTB are dangling the worm in front of all traders, hoping that you will bite so they can take your money.  They are also calming the fears of the general public, and will spend any amount of "money" necessary to support this "market."

Meanwhile, what's really going on is happening in the PM markets.  That's real, the rest is for show.
