That hammer is definitely tempting, but without fundamentals behind it, or even a QE3 announcement for a shits-n-giggles relief rally, it will just be a dead cat bounce.

Nop, bus drivers only accept exact change. You've only got dollar bills.

And second, you're not allowed to speak to the busdriver or step behind the white line.

Man, you are tough.

My rough calculation shows the 38% Fib retracement of the S&P puts it back at the 200 dma. I don't see the market breaking that unless they can convince everyone to keep volume at vapor level.

What's your take if the NFP number sucks tomorrow?  Does the trap door open and we fall in (sub S&P 1250)?


There are so many mixed signals - a head and shoulders on the S&P and what if we post a negative jobs report like I am forecasting we will.  Is it the bear I have been looking for?


I've gotten creamed this year on options - picking the wrong way 3 times. 


This time I think I will be right.  -10K NFP - unemployment 9.4%. 150K birth/dead adjustment.

You heard it here first. Flush on bitchez.

The cost of Motorcycle fairings has risen steadily over recent years to such an extent 2001 Yamaha YZF R1 fairings that you could build 15 new complete motorycles 2002 Yamaha YZF R1 fairings adding up the price of the Motorcycle parts separately when purchased 2005 Yamaha YZF R1 fairings as spares.One way to save money on the cost of motorycle 2006 Yamaha YZF R1 fairings parts is to purchase non genuine items from the
1999 Yamaha YZF R6 fairings aftermarket where saving of 30-70% can be made with equivalent quality Yamaha YZF1000R Thunderace fairings items in many cases.Of course there are some Motorcycle Yamaha YZF600R Thundercat fairings parts that you can only buy from the actual bike manufacturers such as fiberglass parts, petrol tanks, many electronicsKawasaki ZX6R fairings and logos but in general most motorycle 2000 Kawasaki ZX-6R fairings parts can be purchased freely on the open market for attractive prices.There are several 2001 Kawasaki ZX-6R fairings aftermarket success stories in motorcycle 2002 Kawasaki ZX-6R fairings parts in such areas as chains, sprockets,tyres,brakes and suspension 2004 Kawasaki ZX-6R fairings parts and simple motorcycle parts such as light bulbs, oils and spark plugs and these can be purchased online or from most motorcycle 2006 Kawasaki ZX-6R fairings dealers. It is always good to know your exact make model and year of manufacture when procuring 2008 Kawasaki ZX-6R fairingss motorcycle parts and often the bike model series code or chassis code to ensure you get the right parts. This information can be found in your 2001 Kawasaki ZX-9R fairings vehicle ownership document.The 2003 Kawasaki ZX-10R fairings Motorcycle Industry has seen a boom time in recent years and the future looks extremely 2004 Kawasaki ZX-10R fairings positive due to not only the freedom of individual travel that a motorycle 2005 Kawasaki ZX-10R fairings affords riders but also due to the huge cost savings Kawasaki ZX12R fairingss in transportation compared to gas guzzling larger 2003 Kawasaki ZX-12R fairings and Suvs. The scooter market has seen a boom in many countries where miles per gallon can reach over 100 compared to a motor car rarely exceeding 30 miles per gallon.As gasoline reserves draw to a close Kawasaki ZX14R fairings motorcycles and the sales of motorcycle parts for home maintenance will be a booming business. Ducati 848 fairings Markets such as China and India have seen a massive surge in the use of smaller capacity motorcycles and scooters and the trend continues.

and instead of having the chart start March 9th, 2009.. maybe push it out to say April 2007?

Gold, utilities and Long bonds are up a ton over the last few years, and the 3 year avg returns beat the crap out of the market.. 

So please - to all those who conveniently reference a March 2009 start date.. you are kindly invited to eat a giant bag of dicks.

i was going to post the predictions of fellow deflationist Rob Prechters delusional inept frauds at Elliott Wave International but a photo of turds being flushed down the toilet i thought might bring the place down a bit today ...still if you're in Gold and Silver (which retard Prechter sold in 2001 - Doh! - at the start of the decade long rally coz he's got no fuking clue about precious metals prices) there's something to cheer about today

Prechter has called for super crash three years in a row.  He has struck out. His call: Dow 1,000 or less. LOL

Actually, he called the rally at the end of February 2009 when everyone else was shitting their panties. He also called the 2007 top, 3 months early, true, but he was still ahead of all the linear forecasters.

He also called the end of this rally way too early, but nevertheless, he was one of the few that called the 2009 bottom. His timing has sucked on calling the bear rally top, but he's been predicting the crash that we're all looking for now since 1999. His forecast is playing out, over time, but yeah, if you listened to him at the end of 2009 you missed out on a lot of this rally. Big picture, though, he's more right than a lot of folks are giving him credit for. He was talking about Europe long before it was making headlines, along with a lot of other events that have come to pass. I like the Socionomic theory, just don't use it alone for trading.

Prechter has been wrong from 2009 and all the way into 2011 ..i was there, i got the 'Prechter is a Moron' t-shirt... it's no good cherry picking saying "Prechte was right here" ...it's the 14 months out of 15 that he gets it WRONG that makes his Elliott Wave technique a complete shambles and a danger to every unknowing or easily mis-led and conned investor... you cannot follow Prechters diabolical inaccuracy at predicting without losing vast sums of money.. his predictions month after month are shit. Period.

You drop back to the trenches by saying he's "right on the big picture" well no he's not even half right there either. He's been calling for a delfationary meltdown and we've got a very mixed bag out there. His simplistic deflationary 'black and white' Bear market has not happened for the last 4 years he's been singing like a loony for it. They may be right one day (ie. all-out deflation) but it doesn't make up for their cronic lack of reality describing the mixed full colour state we are in. Prechter is deflation-biased in the extreme to the point of delusion.

That delusion at his ability permeates his ebtire sham of an organisation. They constantly quip at other market participants being so worng all the time, quoting other people and then saying how much better they know the market. But hard stone cold truth is EW are the worst market predictors, possibly ever.

Prechter and his EW crew of cretins have been hammered by EVERY market analsys for 18 months on the trot. Wiped the floor and noses rubbed in it. The 2009-2011 whitewash fully invalidates his techniques (they make a 50/50 coin toss look like a financial genius). it is a measure of how far Prechters head is rammed up his pompous arse that he continues to peddle this failed fraud of a technique as being accurate

Prechter and Elliott Wave are a completely busted flush, 2009-2011 RIP

Why would anyone buy his Socionomic Theory. You don't need to read his crap to figure out politicians are pissing off everybody.

His crap and advise almost buried me. Watch CNBC and do just the opposite and you would be better off.

Better yet. Read Zero Hedge and get better insite of mood and markets. Pay for Prechter's Ponzi Scam. Never Again.

Looks to me like Mr. Biggs is living large at a high-end assisted living facility.   Do you think it is a single occupancy room, or double occupancy where Medicare pays most of the rent?  If so, he better pray means testing doesn't make it through DC. 

Did he really ask Maria to climb up the ladder and update the chalk on Bell Atlantic (BEL)?

That hits too close to home. When the dementia gets worse, your parental unit will punch you in the face, and tear your medicine cabinet off the wall to fight you tryin to get them in the shower to wash off the shit they've spread from the backs of their knees to their armpits.

Make sure one of you buys long term nursing insurance.

Benny is pumping the stock market as a means of "raising confidence" in the broader economy is he? Now you've let the cat out of the bag how are businessmen feeling about a faked, steroid abused centrally planned economic indicator! Are they likely to be happier or more concerned?
