Tyler, Fuck the SAT test.

The only formula anyone needs to memorize is:

Market data + Asset Prices + Fed Purchases + European Debt Crisis + Political and Financial theater = Bullshit.

Simple equation = simple theft.

Enjoy October. All stops will be pulled out to boost equities, starting twelve months pre-election. This is just a downturn so we have someyhing we can be "saved" from. Hedge your hedges. Hedge your hedges of hedges. Ad infinitum.

I have literal hedges in the front yard of my house. They protect me from hooligans and rapscallions. Also 30 yr fixed no recourse at 4.125% bitchez!!!

Oct. 10, 2011: SPX=799.22; VIX = 79.92, forever to be known as the Columbus Day Massacre, as I am on record of predicting months ago.

I'm also predicting The Bernank will announce QE3 the following day in order to stem the continued stock market loses.

In other words, if you're going to panic, panic first.

I would LOVE to see the "fictional" Tyler Durden Campaign Platform! How would Tyler manage the coming wipeout and recovery as President if he had a cooperative Congress. How would the US weather the storm in his administration? Tyler please consider writing this. I know you shy from politics and stick with uncovering lies, cronyism, deceipt etc...but let's just say you were going to deliver some hope and some change we could believe in...what would it be?

Math is my strong point. For 500 bernankes I'll get back to you in 7 days with the exact answer. Lots of equations to analyze.

Why platinum?  It is money, but is rarely recognized as such.  You are more likely to lose out with falling industrial demand.

Imho - it will never drop too far from gold, so gold will pull it along. And you have greater upside if it returns to a more 'normal' spread.

No I can't.

But I can eat the tasty little creatures the bullets drop for me.

I can also eat the food that others will trade me for a few of my precious, really precious, little metals

If cracks me up how many people believe that even if things turn to shit, they will still be marching down to Wally World to buy some Chinese processed Mott's Apple Juice.

Good luck with that.
