So... What About Those Next 20 Days?

Tyler Durden's picture


This is what happens when the market prices in $1+ trillion in loose money from the Chairman, and gets a sharp stick in the eye instead.

The VWAP algo attractor comes through in the clutch:

Curve inversion has begun:

Stocks plunge, commodities collapse, Morgan Stanley refutes facts presented by a fringe blog, gold and precious metals are liquidated as margin calls explode, dollar soars as every bank in Europe scrambles to get its hands on every Benjamin it can get, Treasurys surge to never before seen prices even as CDS of the underlying countries soars, and the DJIA posts the third biggest weekly drop in history (and the week is not even over yet)...

...And beneath it is all is the creeping realization that the Fed's most recent global bailout action with the ECB, the SNB, the BOJ and the BOE does not start for another 20 days, or October 12, 2011. That's right: three weeks in which there is nothing in place to provide the much critical trillions of dollar that every bank in the world so desperately needs. We wish Europe all the best in pretending for 20 days that it can survive on its own, even as Greece is about to become the riotcam's favorite destination once again.

... Oh yes, and Goldman is about to announce it was just stopped out on its 1.55 EURUSD "tactical" trade.

Learn something else today too:  the mercury in 99% of deep sea fish is bound up in an insoluble salt with selenium, which makes it totally non-toxic.  This is why, despite very large amounts of mercury in fish, heavy fish eating cultures don't experience symptoms of toxicity.

When he comes at ya, doesn't seem to be living... until he bites ya, and those black eyes roll over white and then... ah then you hear that terrible high-pitched screamin'.

The common theme these days is "World Market is in Danger". The world is definitely not in such a worse shape as the US and Europe. It is ironic that the media likes to drag the "world" when they are in fear.

I agree with the sentiment, but can't agree with the statement because all economies are tied together in ways that nobody can anticipate except in the most general ways.  If the EU goes, it will suck everybody down into the hole .  Some will suffer more than others, but all the boats are chained together.

Everybody forgotten China's porking spree already? China's got a copper liability problem, compounded with a huge housing/infrastructure bubble and an economy that's almost totally dependant on export.

The US and the EU should need no explanation.

So, they might be at least somewhat justified in bringing 'the world' into it since the three largest economies in the world are totally insolvent time bombs. That, and this is most definitely going to result in a 1930s style worldwide depression.

With any luck this mess will cut off foreign aid and actually allow a few third world countries a chance to settle down their violence and develop.

I won't make any butt jokes, because that target is just too easy to hit.  Suffice it to say, maybe you should hit the gym once in a while, Maria?

The woman has made a career out of One Question.  She would use that question even in the face of this hypothetical event:

[A comet the size of Nebraska is heading straight for the US.  A shooting war just started in the Middle East that has somehow put the US against Russia, and both sides have pushed the button on their entire respective nuclear arsenals.  A lab in suburban NYC screwed up and allowed the escape of a self-replicating biological pathogen that is 99% fatal if exposure occurs.  Ayman al Zawahri just bought all of Qadhafi's nuclear material, and a magnitude 11 quake just hit Tokyo, with a fifty foot tsunami making its way toward the US West Coast.  UBS and CS just declared bankruptcy, and a new Berlin Wall is under construction.  China just launched a second Cultural Revolution.  Aliens have landed in Chicago, and Rahm Emmanuel flipped them the bird and bitched slapped them.]

Maria is interviewing Bob Doll.

"So given that, where should investors put their money to work now?"

"any postive comment whatsoever"

Cramer-inspired "positivity"/insane rambling, sure.  I think there are a lot of positive comments here.  Stuff like "you should get out of debt" or "don't play in the rigged casino" or "buy gold to protect your hard earned wealth".  These are positive ideas.  It gives me hope that there are at least a few sane people out there attempting to spread that sanity.

+5.56  Kinda waffling though. Have an SKS with a Shernic bullpup and a ton of ammo.  Inherited a Daewoo K2(not 200) and a Model 700 in .223 recently.  Not sure if I should switch from 7.62 to 5.56 or just keep them all?

5.56 sucks.  Stick with a decent-sized round.

Thu, 09/22/2011 - 21:30 | 1699577 PolishErick
PolishErick's picture

A "decent" sized round produces a decent amount of recoil... Shure a 7.62 can stop a drunken rhinoceros hauling a wheelbarrow of bricks... But You need a fair amount of marksmanship to send those big boys on target down range. Besides the recoil (which fucks up any effective rapid fire if You don't have the exact reflexes worked out) You also need to compensate for the rebound of the gun lock & barrel- in a different way for every peice of hardware (a pojectile that size exiting the rifle causes the whole weapon to work)... Im no sniper or even a rifle man, but ive shot a couple of guns and rifles, a couple of times... And in my opinion its better for someone with less skillz (like me) to pick a smaller caliber- which, on the recievieng end, can be just as nasty.


But I think this coversation is still unimoprtant- they might pull another "scheme undreamed of" off and we are going to be back to the slow decline... I think this one is not the big crash... yet.. But if anyone wants to get rid of a Beryl 5,45 × 39 mm carabine- let me know...

Many ideas, curse words, accusations of mental health and boisterous folly will progress to the inevitable - "I know you are, but what am I?' as the pack wanders off to find a new fight that looks interesting and the final quote mark to end this sojurn lies hanging in the air, implied but never written.

Fuckin-A, Dow closing right slap dab on it's ass lows with a humongoiloid sell order imbalance is seen as a Positive down here on the floor, because if it rallied back than it'd have to fall further again tomorrow, so this'll just save us the pain.
Dow fucking hammed 10% which is seen a positive as Jerry Jerkitoff a senior technical rinkie dink numerology statistician from Drool & Co. points out that if we have a 10% correction each and every day for the rest of eternity, we never ever get to fucking zero due to Zeno's Law.
Dow headed way the fuck down as indicated by the futures premarket indication which is looked upon a a great wonderful miraculous positive because it means that yesterday's sell order imbalance has been jerked itself off somewhere during the revisioist off hours extended trading in the South Bourgoine Islands off Assabigbigfuck Peru where a huge 100 share bid for NetFlix was entered surprising everybody because nobody even fucking lives there.
Dow headed way the fuck up because there's nowhere else for it to go hopefully seen as a positive.
Melvin Buttfuck, senior impablance order hider and assistant clerk for Dingaling & Co, specialists which nobody wanted to buy last year evidently committed suicide in a stall which had been emitting a profusely bad odor with a Out of Order sign on it for over a week in the Women's Can just off the old Bond Odd Lot Trading Room now used as a cokeline and huffing parlor is thought to be Very Positive For The Market since nobody even missed him.
The sky didn't fall last night was construed as bullish since everybody's running out of other transitory horeshit excuses.
The president didn't say shit which drove the merket up 3 points before it rentered it's perpendicular descent towards the earth's surface at 110% full military power, afterburners on, options, none.
And finally, everybody is just so fucking sick and tired of this shit and has no money left anyway, that we've all tuned it out.



Yes, Dave.

nobody talks about it. Tyler any toughts on gold? Finally start to agree that gold is in the beginning of a serious correction like Silver? Also for the gold bugs out there. you still can sell for good price. Buy some land instead.

I see gold only being off about a benjamin from a damn good run. Had you dollah cost averaged purchases of physical, your assets would still be up 25% compared to the hosing paper is taking this month.

Suck it up.

If they want to panic the gold traders, they will lure them back in the water tomorrow and eat them alive on Monday and Tuesday.

And no, I don't agree with you that gold is going "through the toilet."  It's too apparent what is going on here.

Vanna i'd like a gin and tonic and a back rub and I'll give you a vowel that will make you say "oooooooooooooooooo"


Uhh pat - your mic's still on and it looks like you have pup tent pants.


Gold for land? I'll trade you my house and land for the right amount of gold. Gold is due for a correction, but long term it rises on the ashes of crony capitalism.

To be fair to hungarianboy, he's sort of right. I just got the chance to check out ZH just now, and was specifically looking for some posts on gold since it went in the shitter today. Nothing. Deafening silence.


Of course, that doesn't necessarily mean anything, either. But he's not completely wrong.

You can't bury land.

Nor can you hide land from the taxman.  Nor can you take it across borders.  Nor can you take it with you if you are forced to move to find work.  Nor can land as easily be broken down into change to buy items over time in small increments.  Nor can the sale of land be hidden from the taxman (there's that damned tax man again!).

Having land is beneficial of course. Great place to bury gold!  All joking aside, land is also valuable, if owned outright and its not ALL you have.  Same an be said for gold (if its not paper and its not your only safety net).

Around here (North Wales) it's increasingly started to look like Land Of The Dead. There are plenty of zombies around, and if they bite you you're still fucked, but they have developed a rudimentary intelligence and can still pump gas, chop meat and the like. They can even engage in a rudimentary form of communication; I believe it's called 'texting'? I just pray they don't cotton on to that whole 'shooting guns' thing, as we have one of the few large gun clubs in the UK a couple of miles away. And it ain't all that secure, if you really wanted to open it up. Yeah, OK, I've cased the joint. And NO operators of Project Echelon and the UK government, I have no criminal intent. The shit will actually have to hit the fan before I do. It's called, quaintly, 'private property rights'. Those items belong to their owners, right upto the point where they point one of them at me.

Don't get me wrong, I think my immediate community will pull together and we can mostly weather the storm. It's the druggie, pisshead, benefit-dependent scum in the social housing up the hill a ways that I'm worried about. It's already pretty near Bartertown up there on a good day!

While I don't agree in principle with the NWO depopulation agenda my suspicion is that we're gonna end up implementing it for them, just out of self preservation. Sad, really.

You don't need a costly shooting war to depopulate.  All you need is some high yield nukes in the upper atmosphere and whole continents lose their electronics, and the ability to feed themselves.

Since you're a Hedgie, I suspect you're also a silver owner. A basic knowledge of electronics, a plastic tub, a car battery (or substitute power supply)  and a relatively small knowledge of physics will net you some colloidal silver. Add some seaweed to your diet, take 250ml of sodium bicarbonate dissolved in distilled water and generally eat a healthy diet and you'll be 1 of the 10%.

Won't work on me, mate. I've got an electronics vault. Used to work on Tempest-protected equipment back in the day, so I know how to proof for EMP. And there is a LOT of stuff in there.

I'm also relatively expert on tube / valve electronics, which won't be unduly bothered by it, so I can build audio amps, ham radio, etc from scratch, if necessary. And have a LOT of stock of tubes.

Hey Mitzi - can you direct me to any good resources on modifying your car so it is EMP proof? I thought about buying a pre-75 chevy, but those things are such dinosaurs, I would much rather get a newer car and modify it. So many electronics, though. Steering, throttle, fuel-injection, variable valve timing, etc, etc, let alone the basic ignition system. Is there a cut-off year (like 1995 or 2000), where it would no longer be practical to EMP proof a car?

" Is there a cut-off year (like 1995 or 2000), where it would no longer be practical to EMP proof a car?"

Ya gotta go back to either a) no semiconductors, or b) ECL with special shielding (doubt that that tech made it into carz), or c) good grounded/gauss shield as you park.

So, you'd b' into solid cams, mechanical FI, or carbz (stay away from SU, they don't work even without EMP).

If you went to Cuba,  you could get a '58 Chevy that is really, really EMP-proof.  Of course, the grid wouldn't be a grid, so no gas comming out of the ground.

Yeah, I just read that book (One second after?)  Damn thing was almost as bad as "The Road."

Scary thing is, it's a pretty legitimate threat.  Not much is properly hardened against EMP.

Another one to read is Patriots by J. W. Rawles.

There is another 400 page book only on the 'Net somewhere: Lights Out.  The last one also posits and EMP as what gets us.

dcrb: EMP has a radius of effectiveness.  Lots of steel in power plants.  Gauss shields (structural steel well grounded) is effectively that.

I am not saying that a well placed weapon (of many types) can croak a chunk of any grid.  Lots of effort has been given to "black-start" of critical units, lots of effort on the grid/distribution side.

The "posits" are good as "worst-case" situation.  In all cases, stf away from big cities.

don't cha' know.

Honest to Fucking God
What ever those things are when we're told by God about something.  Like a special message.  Whatever.
I had one yesterday.  Out golfing.  And along one of the holes just into the first cut and in front of a small pot bunker is this really scrawny but cute old pine.  Probably no more than 20' high.  And up in the branches is a grounds keeper with a fucking Ball Peen Hammer, banging on the branches and pine cones.
Wacking the shit out of the tree with a Ball Peen Hammer.
What does it mean?
Is it realted to the 20 days with no liquidity?
Is it a symbol akin to Moses' leading his people across the desert?
Do you know why Moses crossed the desert?
To get to the other side.
Is it a mystery dopplegagnger banging the shit out of the tree trying to recreate the 2.5 kh HAARP oscillation magnetic wave sound to wreak havoc upon the planet within the next 20 days?
Is there really a big city for TPTB under the Denver International Airport?

What does it all mean?
