Brazil just cut rates again. At least they gave themselves a cushion.

I thought Brazilian women already have a lot of cushion, but I digress...

...keep in mind O'Neill is a Manchester United fan and ardent supporter of said club.

There once was a man named O'Neill

With gusto & confidence he gave a great spiel

About emerging markets growing with zeal

He proceeded to I.D. a fav four

The BRIC acronym was thus born

Soon into their coffers money did pour

The first to 'trade' this paradigm banked cash

No one could fathom a crash

Many rode the golden rails of this train

And for a while large profits did rain

Until the rug was pulled out from their feet

It turns out Goldman Sachs had been shorting this teat

Pocketing another Abacus type beat

All the chart shows is the "seat" of TPTB is in Europe, right in the middle of the bulls and the bears.

Leveraging works.

Brazil has now definitely entered the realm of bubbles and busts. Welcome to the club.

Does the NASDAQ count if much if it has been purchased by the FED?

Which he was told about by his tour guide between meetings in a tight schedule.  Fascinated, he turned to Wikipedia for confirmation and felt as if he'd a moment of revelation, seeing so much more of the Chinee culture than he'd ever appreciated.

Shortly thereafter when being interviewed by the Daily Mail's sports section he was asked what the Chinee had that the West didn't, to which he replied; "Great dim sum recipes"

I always forget whether you mean nasdaq the composite index, or nasdaq the creating-value-for-our-shareholders entity

Let R be the set of all stock markets that are not members of themselves, etc

Well clearly it's time for O'neill to start talking up the beauty of the Nasdaq.

More like he chats up the beauty of a Brazilian tranny wrapped up neath the Christmas tree on Boxing day in snowy Chiswick.

Can't be stressed enough the collapsed in the iron ore price and it's effect on the BRICS/world.  That and inflation is still rampant.

To me, this is just more proof that the US stock market is manipulated to just stupid levels. How the S&P 500 keeps rallying in light of europe and emerging markets falling to pieces is just a joke.

Wonder what the respective charts would look like if AAPL traded on the exhange of the country where all their stuff is made, instead of the NASDAQ.

You guys are mean.  You need to stop picking on Jimbo.

Didn't any of you see the interview he did on Charlie Rose where he told the heartwarming story (that only an investment banker could tell) to his daughter about how Goldman and Co. are lifting all the world's poor out of grinding poverty?

And there's so much more good work that needs to be done; God's work.

If you can't help, then get out of the way!

The good news is if anyone needs any other investing advice, Tomas Lee says we're at the beginning of a 3-year bull market and the housing stocks are ready to double and perhaps triple.

Big money, big money, no whammies, no whammy!
