    Why is a Deutsche Bank mouthpiece suggesting “negative retail deposit rates or perhaps wealth taxes”? The answer is to (supposedly) stimulate our economies.

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.

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.

You bought BAC @5.70 before it dropped almost another 10% - Idiot!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
