Seemed like a good idea at the time is the new fun while it lasted before everybody had their eyes poked out.
I like Jarts.
Bag-0-Glass wasn't half bad either.

Jarts was a fun game. Best thing was you played it in the soft summer grass so you could play barefoot!

Ahhhhhh, Unicredit... as insolvent as a rotten, maggoty turd on a "Made in China" plastic spoon.  Prepare for the next 5-day wave down.

It's one of those turds that no matter how many times you flush simply keeps floating back up.

well it only went up 50% in the last 2 weeks, you think some people will take profits...

And I understand its a phantom bank

And I understand that it went up on low volume

And I understand all you want, but we are in this game to make money not to be moral, if not we should stay out of the stock market and grow tulips

Absolutely, although someone not taking a profit may be anoyone who bought the stock on January 1 and saw it drop 50%.

Regardless, they will never let it fail even if it is a rotting peace of shit so we are no longer trading a bank stock but a worthless peace of paper that can make us small speculators a lot of money...anyone who trades financial stocks and thinks they are trading something real is a ..... (pick your insult), so stating that it fell 7% because its a piece of shit makes me say....duh

You seem to arguing we should be watching the country then. I agree. "What price this lack of failure?" Seems rather high and growing as the Zero Hedge "re-rack" segment shows all too well. What say you Gandalf?

If you want to ride the bailouts, shouldn't you be buying bank senior debt, not equity? I don't see equity surviving the next round of European bank bailouts unscathed.

Great, so now the popular consensus is that morality and turning a profit are mutually exclusive.

Lulz, that's Really a bullish sign for capitalism in an era desperate for a return to egaltarian ethical principles...

Yes I did sum it up.

I wish I could put my saving in the stock mkt as an investment, but nowadays you put your money in the stock mkt for speculation by definition, there is no investing...unfortunately, and as a ZH reader all should understand it by now, but let me be cristal clear this saddens me to no end, regardless I won't let easy money get away on the fake pretext of morality

Last time I looked, the definition of volatility was when something moves about wildly and unpredictably. Simply dropping off a cliff seems very predictable to me. The trend is it goes to ZERO.

Gee, I wonder why the markets don't get suspended during rapid, low volume melt-ups. I suppose that sort of volatility is okay.

Now you're getting it.  There is 'Good' volatility and 'Bad' volatility.  Just like there is 'Good' Mark-to-Market and 'Bad' Mark-to-Market.

I thought volatility meant going .... up ... and down a lot, surely just going down is more appropriately called 'collapsing'!

Absolutely not. A very attractive woman, and perhaps the only watchable personality on the network. One can also sense that she has little affinity for James Cramer...but then again, who does ?

The timing is perfect, it'll take about 2 weeks of euro bank stocks being halted everyday until the EU disappoints again with their plan coinciding with earnings being over though by that time we would be at ES 1350 = 20 * 8 trading days + 1190. Then we would start crashing again until QE3.
