    The US, in its own decline, is showing this same self-destructive tendency. The worse things get, the greater the inclination of the citizenry to say, “Carry on, everything’s fine.”

So... What About Those Next 20 Days?

Stocks are pushing a rather impressive comeback at the moment!

You are in deep financial waters and the hyperinflation shark made a feint at you and then veered off.  Now it is circling again, and you can see its fin, and you know it is just a matter of time...

are you sure it's a shark 

just because you see a fin...


maybe it's  just a tuna with a hard on 

swimming upside down ...

It's true, Tuna have so much mercury content that they use their peckers as thermometers to measure the air temp. are you happy to see me or is that a themometer in your pocket?

-74 comment score is impressive, clawing back to 400 down on the djia is impressive?  i guess in an economy that produces nothing but debt, falling slightly less on the long road to zero is impressive....

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.

 Sometimes that shark he looks right into ya. Right into your eyes. And, you know, the thing about a shark... he's got lifeless eyes. Black eyes. Like a doll's eyes. 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 ocean turns red, and despite all the poundin' and the hollerin', they all come in and they... rip you to pieces.

Sometimes the Chairman he looks right into ya. Right into your eyes. And, you know, the thing about a academic economist... he's got lifeless eyes. Black eyes. Like a quant's eyes. When he makes a speech, he doesn't seem to make any sense... until he looks at ya, and those black eyes roll over white and then... ah then you hear that terrible high-pitched feedback. The street turns red, and despite all the shortin' and the coverin', they all come in and they... rip your portfolio to pieces.

So... about that flag continuation pattern in the S&P.  1102 must hold tomorrow or we are going to see a barrage of selling.  DAX is about 4% off its lows, so a test tomorrow could presage the S&P test.

Black Friday leading to intervention Sunday.  Or is that too easy?

I remember for years her saying to buy real estate and how that is "good" debt. And how pissing away debt on school loans was a good idea.

You'd think she'd straighten up. It would be more cost effective for her to go straight and take the tax breaks instead of being a butch lesbian.

Correlary to that, Dave Ramsey will be telling folks to "walk with Jesus" and buy stocks. Its the American thing to do.

Dave's advice is always personal deleveraging and then developing a cash reserve followed by investing in growth mutual funds by dollar cost averaging and then charitable giving.That is great advice for most anyone and would collectively be great for the country.

Yes, impressive comeback. dow only down 410. I'm so impressed I went all in, long. Bought a Mcmansion, at full price and will live the amerkan dream witha full loaded balance on several credit cards.

Now, that's impressive.

You guys are funny :)  It was down over 500 at one point, and I'm looking at 384 down.  That's quite a move up in such a short time frame.  I agree it's doomed, and my personal belief is we retest the lows of march 09, but any postive comment whatsoever on this side is instantly attacked and junked.
