Nothing is, but what is not.

He's all form in zero substance.

Hot air will rise until it doesn't!

Those TSA fuckers are coming to MY country!

Imagine if British coppers turned up in the good ole US of A and started throwing down. How'd y'all like them apples?

If I had a big enough dildo, and a place to kneel, I could fuck the world.

The market is very attentive to the words of Bernanke. Be seen whether shares have the same effect.

TwoJacks's picture

Can anyone else hear the 'click, click, click' of the roller coaster, or was that just me loading my guns?

That's just Ben playing Russian Roulette with the economy. No worries.

Anyone have an extra bullet to help even up the odds?  Maybe Ben can play with an oozi.

MillionDollarBoner_'s picture

I got an extra five he can borrow...

but I want the "winning" bullet back after they dig it out of his cold, dead skull.

Should go a bomb on eBay :O)

It's just them buying, so they'll let us know when they'll happily sell it back to us all on the back end. God's work, remember?

LawsofPhysics's picture

Hhhmmm.  There is a trade in there somewhere.  Implied value 1350?

Bizzarro market - it is all the techs that are driving the market, lead by INTC, which lowered guidance tomorrow, guidance which most think is still too optimistic.  Go figure.

HaroldWang's picture

And AAPL down on the day as well with analysts thinking they may actually be soft on earnings and guidance. If that were to happen, then you'd see a market drop faster than you could imagine.

Jake88's picture

It would just trigger another melt up.

Having the 10y treasury yield on that top chart makes no sense. It should be inverse (assuming negative correlation as they both skyrocket) treasury prices and on a percentage chart. The scale is messed up using nominal S&P against bps on bond IRs.


edit: I compared SBF to the S&P it does look like equities started to outstrip the inverse bond fund late last week. The flight to bonds (as t-bonds have outperformed in july) may have been misinterpretted as a flight to safety instead of what it was, a flight from the euro. Now equities are playing catchup.

Stocks up, the recovery is finally here!!!! Time to load up my leased Escalade up with 65" plasmas.

"Time to load up my leased Escalade up with 65" plasmas."

I for one plan on buying the TV from Cowboy Stadium.

Look at the S&P I mean those suckers in bonds today are really feeling it. I mean look at the LQD....that is some....wait a minute....what?

jtmo3's picture

It's quite obvious that the bernak has made every market worthless for a return BUT the stock market. They have set shit up so the best return is buying and selling stocks. Period. Therefore, unless the world is destroyed by a comet or earthquake, don't look for a market crash anytime soon. The masters have seen the that.

fonzannoon's picture

I don't think so jtmo. Credit is on fire. They are flipping bonds like miami condo's in 2004.

Village Smithy's picture

You're right. Bernanke thinks he has us all figured out. Half of us will take his free money and buy Treasuries, the risk averse half, that will keep debt servicing costs down. The other half, the risk takers, will take the free money and jack the shit out of equities. That helps his bankster buddies who all got in at the bottom when he phoned them and told them his big QE idea, and the sheeple see Dow +++ every night on TV and flip back to American Idol.

So, let me get this straight --the same genius Bernanke who didn't see the Great Recession coming, or subprime contagion, or the futility of his QEs, is now to be relied on to suspend this

market in mid air, with no net.....?   

I'll take the other side of that bet.  Thank you!

Seems even ZHs are signing on to the consensus view that you should never fade Maestro, Jr!     I love the contrarian comfort of that.

That gives me contrarian comfort, to boot.

this makes  the fraud of the internet stock boom/bubble/bust look like preschool childs play. I hope Ben is happy chasing away every trader on the planet. Then you can have what you call a "market" and stick it. F#@k you ben.
