Dow 50 000
DOW 50,000, gas $20, avg trip to the grocery store $1,500.
And the look on your 4 yearolds face that you will never be able to afford another happy meal, priceless.
But there's the mastersfuckingyouintheass card, for everything else.
Every meal will be a happy meal no matter what sort of food it is.
Bread diluted with some sawdust will be a great treat.
Tumbleweeds with salt......back to the dustbowl days.
Dental floss chowder can be quite tasty if prepared properly.
Gotta keep those squirrels in the backyard fed well for now. Reminds me to load up on spices.
The raptors are eating all the squirrels. I suppose I can eat the raptors.
Good call! Can't wait for Melamine milk!
The New American dream: Wanting a better life for your children, hoping they won't grow up eating bugs
Physical Gold and Silver will be barter only, no one will trade it for paper or digital dollars.
Au Ag yea yea yea...
A friend of mine has an even better/cheaper idea: coffee beans.
Imagine waking up after the big fall--either you're going to be reaching for your whiskey, your gun, your pot...
And your morning coffee.
Toilet paper...maybe cigarettes. ;-)
Hey, I will give you a 3 pack for those eggs and that piece of ham.
you talk about new $ or the old $?
Making money on my Long positions on the S&P @1105; BAC @$5.70; F @ $9.85; appreciate your shorts; as you take your losses it will help me make more money; thanks for believing everything your guru told you. We appreciate it.
You 'made money' I see so youre declaring you sold? Until the sell order clears, you havent made jack shit and all your gains can easily be a big negative by tomorrows open, IQ45.
I am not selling any of my stuff. Lead & Brass is looking GREAT! Acquired my "junk" silver @ face value...BITCHEZ! Farm land is dropping in price nicely (lower property taxes)...What is not to like?
"Bring out your dead"...
the phrase "making money" is understood by most literate humans. You are correct; nothing is booked.
Sad to say I doubt it, sheeps. They've still got til the 1180-1190s SPX before they come to their senses, based on the last tape-painting exercise. Never underestimate herd stupidity, especially when they get to hear what they want to hear.
It is clear IQ-145 is another spin-off of RoboTrader.
My cousin started day trading 6 months ago and now he's a millionaire.
Too bad he was a billionaire when he started.
You bought BAC @5.70 before it dropped almost another 10% - Idiot!
Is their website back up? I lost track.
You forgot to mention you bought BAC at $16.60 and Ford at 18.30. Wow, does your guru Cramer really know his stuff. Now that you made your 10% back (still down 70%) you'd be smart to sell...
This is a good trade, I love it. I expect that we finish the rally tomorrow morning. The bad news always comes out during the weekend. I will short a little this afternoon.
The bad news could come out tomorrow with NFP
The market has some rosiness priced in (not sure why with 150,000 planned layoffs for Sept)
Quick postin' bobby! You got me pal the technology failed me. Friday is always dirty laundry day last hour & after close. Be warned.
Lots of people calling for a rally until the end of the year, and a plunge after the holidays... Tough call... I say we dive sooner, but I'm always amazed by the power of extend and pretend....
Through ZH about a month ago I found this roughly ahhhh <90% accurate blogger...
You guys may know him -----> pebblewriter look him him up at http://pebblewriter.blogspot.com/
His techs calls for 1040 by next week 1200 by year end and 350 by 12/12 here ----> http://bit.ly/qtxIhl
I say everything, including gold and silver, bounces around in a range until the wheels come off. There is no limit to the manipulation we are seeing, so why would I think it will stop before everything blows up? What's going to stop it, the manipulators, will they run out of money or motivation? No. Range bound wackiness is the norm from now until the financial apocalypse, because that's exactly what you'll get when they finally lose control.
or good news...
Bad NFP = market tanks right away
Good NFP = market surges for 30 minutes - 1 hour to sucker in the retail crowd, before tanking.
Either way doesn't really make much of a difference
I agree, but over the last 3 years I've been trying to do the opposite of what my gut/DD tells me.
Obviously tomorrow the NFP numbers will be bullish--even if they're imaginary. I bet you that they exceed estimates and this party upwards continues.
NFP of 0 isn't bullish. That's what I'm expecting. I'm sure GS will adjust their numbers right before the number is released.
negative print im geussing
expect a beat on NFP. hence why we have been rallying. 100,000+
Zero is positive in these markets.
It just lacks the shock and awe of a +10 000 (or some arbitrary number that will be revised downwards later)--and that's what the crackheads out there want, shock and awe.
Negative is the new positive. Positive is also positive.
Thank heaven Obama saved all those jobs with his programs or unemployment would be much higher right now.
If the DNC had any sense, they wouldn't even nominate him for the next election.
Do the Dems even have anybody after Obama (except for Kucinich who, like Paul, will NEVER receive his party's nomination)? Clinton? Puke, no. I would say Howard, but I recall reading that he wouldn't run in exchange for being made party chairman. When I asked if the Reps even have anybody (other than Paul) to go against Obama, people like Bachmann and Perry come out of the woodwork. I'll actually be surprised if Obama doesn't win.
I'd vote for Paul/Kucinich if they'd both break ranks. My estimate that'll happen: <1% probability. Does anyone have a link to one of those probability exchanges--where people gauge the likelihood of an outcome by making moneyless bets in a market-style exchange? There's such a thing from one of the universities in Taipei that looks at local events at seems to predict outcomes better than the many slanted polls.
The 150,000 planned layoffs is probably good news as they were expecting 200,000.
The last two ISM reports were manipulated bullshit numbers. What makes you think the NFP will be any different? =\
You know who was famous for invading countries over the weekend?
the US Navy on shore leave?
Pearl Harbor was a Sunday
If the NFP is off, we will see a selloff in the morning then meltup nearly into the close on Friday...wait til then if you are considering shorting.
Everyone well trained, certain even after a possible drop there will definitely be another rise back over the top and then a lot more. Conditioning going perfectly, everyone calm as Hindu cows.
I'll take TZA for 38, Alex!
