As A Reminder, Market-Wide Circuit Breakers Are Now Off And Only A 3,600 Drop In The DJIA Will Halt Trading

Tyler Durden's picture

Sometimes it is worth reminding our vacuum tube-based readers that after 2pm only a 3,600 point in the DJIA will force a market close for the day, unlike the FTSE MIB and the Liffe where a 4% drop is sufficient.

why do i get more satisfaction making money on the short side of the market?

Alasdair's picture

Do you bet the Don't Come in craps, too?

Number 156's picture

You won't find any satisfaction on the long side because there isn't one anyway.

Grab yourself a phone book, and start shorting everything starting from the letter 'A'.

<---- Amusing, because we don't believe any of this shit we spout

<---- Sad, because we buy in to all this shit we spout.


Not sure how I feel about Blowhorn today, so I leave it up to you ZH.  Is the great digital cheerleader amusing, or really really sad?

The Dow briefly fell more than 400 points Thursday before rallying somewhat. Fears about the global economy have investors dumping stocks. Do they know something we don't?

Just think how many people must have bought this market with the debt ceiling drama. For 2+ years this strategy has worked 98%of the time. It certainly looks like the big boys have sold high and are short now. They gonna make a killin on the downside with all the mindless dip buyers they've created. They'll be halfway recapitalized after this chapter in "How To Recapitalize A Bank" is thru.


Damn ..... what a great country America is, ha

Adjusted Monetary Base is parabolic, which is mostly M2. Leads one to imagine the FED is behind this, as they needed to offload some of their balance sheet to avoid being caught in an interest rate vortex. That said if the FED is in MM, no real reason that money can't be put to work in Mr Market. Their modus operandi is to wait for options expiration week. (In Re to the Fed parking money in MM, I only say this because BOJ did this in Japan several times during the lost decade(s), although no one will verify it, comments such as "BOJ is mopping up excess reserves in MM accounts.." )
But first they have to get all the investment banks on board, because you don't want to be throwing bad money after worse, you want a choreographed result.

You Ain't Seen Nothing Yet

I met a devil woman,
she took my heart away.
She said I had it comin' to me,
that I wanted it that way.


You ain't seen nothin' yet,
B-B-B-Baby, you just ain't seen nothin' yet.
Here's something that you never gonna forget
B-B-B-Baby, you just ain't seen nothin' yet...

The United States has shipped over 7 Million Manufacturing Jobs to China in the last 11 years.. along with those 7 Million Manufacturing Jobs the Tax Base that those 7 Million Manufacturing Jobs Represent. If you look at a 25% tax bracket for $50,000 dollar average pay.. over 10 years.. works out to $7 Trillion Dollars or Half our National Debt.


***** “Over the last ten years, China has mounted the biggest challenge to the U.S. manufacturing sector ever seen, threatening producers of steel, chemicals, glass, paper, drugs and any number of other items with prices they cannot match. Not coincidentally, the United States has lost an average of 50,000 manufacturing jobs every month during the same period.” *****



The Government was Paid by these Lobby Whores to allow these Jobs to go to China. Bush signed the WTO Treaty but don’t get to worked up because Obama did NOTHING to change it when he had control of the House and the Senate.

Centralize ethics and lobbying information for voters

"Will create a centralized Internet database of lobbying reports, ethics records, and campaign finance filings in a searchable, sortable and downloadable format."

>> More

Allow five days of public comment before signing bills

To reduce bills rushed through Congress and to the president before the public has the opportunity to review them, Obama "will not sign any non-emergency bill without giving the American public an opportunity to review and comment on the White House website for five days."

Fall of the Republic HQ full length version



To add to this Fucking massacre of America’s Middle Class! “We the People” paid for the Tax Breaks and Subsidies that Corporations enjoyed for Moving the 7 Million Manufacturing Jobs and the $7 Trillion Dollar Tax Base to China.


Understand that 50,000 jobs on average a MONTH were Moved to China! Since the Crash of 2008! There have been a LOT! More Jobs Moving! But there are No! Hard Numbers for the New Normal of Jobs Moving to China!


These Numbers DO NOT INCLUDE ALL THE OTHER COUNTRIES THAT AMERICAN JOBS WERE MOVED TOO! So feel free to use the Brain! God Gave YOU! To expand these numbers well beyond 7 Million Manufacturing Jobs! And the $7 Trillion in Lost Tax Base!


Our Government, it does Not matter which party Red! or Blue! That tells YOU! What YOU! Want to hear! Acts exactly the same way. Obama is Bush and Bush was Obama!


Our National Security has been undermined by Greedy! Lobbyists!!


Our Federal Police Services that are supposed to keep America Safe from Attack!! Have turned a blind eye to the Lobby Dollars that FILL Congress and the Senates Pockets! So that they the People who are supposed to keep “We the People” Safe! Could enjoy a Cushy Private Security Job for the Banks after letting the Banks Rob “We the People” Blind!,or.r_gc.r_pw.&fp=186dbbec6f4e722c&biw=1280&bih=578


The Police (Federal or Local) concentrate ALL their efforts on holding down Americans.


Secret Hold On Whistleblower Protection Narrowed Down To Two Senators


UBS Whistle Blower in Jail for helping the IRS with over 2,000 Tax Dodgers!  


'Austrian tax evasion whistleblower' dies in Swiss jail


Swiss tax whistleblower to give WikiLeaks new data & in Jail for it  



And it ALL Boils Down to Less For YOU!! And More for Them! The Jewish Push for Open Borders and Progressive Immigration Laws (that Lobby Started in the 1920’s and took them almost 40 years to get passed) which equate to Multiculturalism! Have done NOTHING! But Gut America! Turn America away from being a Sovereign Power into being a Jewish / United Nations Police Force.  < - - - WAKE THE FUCK UP!


Try this! Just listen and learn and see if you can wrap your head around it as an option that fixes some of our larger issues! Like being Robbed Blind by our Lobby Masters!


It is time to take America Back!

It is time that the Lobby Owners, The Lobby Whores and ALL of their puppets to GO to whatever existing Police State they find appropriate!

America does NOT need to be turned into yet ANOTHER POLICE STATE!

There are enough Police States around the Globe Already!!


There is NO! Difference BETWEEN THEM ALL!!






Wake the FUCK! UP!!




Washington DC!






Security Services (CIA / FBI / NSA)

Tomorrow will be an interesting day, I can't wait to see the NFP numbers.

HungrySeagull's picture

It's already interesting tonight.

The Goddamn Metals have gone absolutely silent as I write this. Plat is burning, Pal is torched, Gold is badly dented and silver teeters on the abyss.

It's the damn silver that bothers me most. If the NFP is doomsday the market may drop more than it did today or it may rise to the moon.

Damned if I want to hold on to my ASE and damned if I dont need to hold ASE and ready to buy the sinkhole, not the dip via cash.


It's going to be a goddamn long night staring at the screen hitting F5 for a thousand miles.....


I am accustomed to 40's and 70's 100's etc. and now as I write this, I see nothing but one'sies and two'sies.... and every one of them can be simply a tripwire designed to alert whoever has massive positions to either buy or sell.

DAMN it....

Of course, there are no circuit breakers for a +1200 day.

Circuit breakers are just another layer of manipulation.  The varying application of these breakers and the control of shorts is sort of like cheating at golf... you can't cheat consistently thus you will never know what your real handicap is.

S&P500 head and shoulders target is 1,176 and further downside

As mentioned for some time - S&P500 monthly has been tracking sideways this year. This extensive distribution signified a bearish big picture and that a significant downtrend would follow.

I think you mean 1148 which is also the 61.8 fib retrace from the March 09 low.
