Bond margins down, metal margins up, rinse, repeat. Enjoy the low prices and keep stacking. QE3 is just around the corner, as soon as they scare everyone sufficiently.

This teaches ungrateful shorts for betting against AMERICA. I and many others have been long financials and this ensures we don’t have to worry about pesky margin calls. The bears like to gloat whenever they are on the winning side, but it is always the patient, principled investors who have the last laugh.

I sure hope you're kidding.  In fact, that's the only hope I have left.

That is stupid.  Shorts create a bid when they cover, making no-bid situations less likely, and thus tempering rapid declines.

Not that you care about that, as you are simply trolling.

Oh yeah? Then how do you explain the consensus on the short selling ban by top European politicians? Top economic advisors in France, Belgium, Spain and Italy all agree that shorting banking stocks is harmful, unpatriotic and despicable.

C'mon, he let it slip on this one.  Everyone's laughing because he's obvious when he usually has "nerdy libertarian anarchists" mad enough to write paragraphs.  That's when he's at his best.

Shorting bank stocks will bring the ponzi scheme conjured up by banksters to push wealth up the pyramid, to a quick & well deserved end and with it a possibility of building a system that will bestow health, happiness, freedom & liberty on everyone on this planet.

He gets paid for every reply to one of his troll posts. So keep the replys coming, each one is one more dip into BofA's reserves.

Don't start using our band's name without permission either bogus.  The Ungrateful Shorts will sue your ass. Chafe them too. Irritate your roids. The patented drip mechanism will tell all your intimate friends you have the clap too.  Tie the string right and they will give you blue balls, to tight, no balls.  They are American union made and give you the choice of what sex you want to be. And no, we're not going to give you a pair, you have to sign the disclaimer about nut lopping and the non soothing irritation guaranteed by both our shorts and your drooling.

You mean the 7% rally on the RUT in final 45 minutes (601-->649)???  nothing abnormal here...happens all the time.  Move along.

MORE LEVERAGE and we can see 10%, 15%, or 30% daily rallies instead (given the news of a real planned rumor...or is it rumored plan?...not sure which to rally on now)...coming soon to a "market" near you.

I'm sick to my stomach that this is how democracy dies, how capitalism is tamed, how fraud is made unfraudelent, how theft is made legal, how America and a naive kid who grew up loving her fade to dark.

Those who tell the truth are marginalized and either branded insane, unpatriotic, or simply don't have phd's...I guess this means we have much further to go before American citizens are ready for a real change and the light of a paradigm shifting movement.

I believe you and I are ready...but we are out on the lunatic fringe.  Soccer moms and dads (my job on the weekend) haven't a clue what Ron Paul, you, or I are talking about and honestly they'd prefer we stay away...we scare them as we suggest their world is a Matrix like illusion whose time is (nearly) up. 

Then again, ZH'ers are ready for the change 'cause we've been stacking, paid off all debt, stock piled all neccessary food, security, etc.  For average folks they have none of this and all wealth is in paper...gotta scare the shit out of people who've worked hard but will realize they are standing naked heading into a blizzard.

Exactly.  That's the struggle I'm working with on some close family members.  They admit we are hitting the wall, and admit that an implosion in government bennies is the ultimate result.  But they just can't/won't make that next logical step: what happens when a mass of people dependent on government checks finds themselves facing literal starvation?  "What would you do if you and your children were starving," I ask.  I almost feel bad for them as they perform mental gymnastics to keep from facing the answer to that question.

Well, I know what I would do, hence my frenzied preparations.  There is a very thin veneer of civilization held in place by working electricity and entertaining distractions.  We are about to see the true nature of our friends and family, and I'm guessing that will be the most frightening aspect of this shitstorm.  Best of luck to you and yours, and my ultimate hope is that I happen across some ZHers in the rolling future.  We need a secret handshake or passphrase or something.
