My S&P model is looking apocalyptic right now.

I hope it's wrong, but it's converging.

Bill Gross said today the stock market is dead..

Newsflash Bill,

It's been dead a long time.

Bill Gross is a sniveling shit of a shrew.  Second, he's in bonds.  So be it.  Each person has their own market.  Not saying I dissagree or agree with him, but if you are going to take your leads from some?  Quote somone other than Bill Gross.

First of all. 

Unless every trading unit out there is frontrunning, then the market will exist in harmony, as it is now.

All of you Cry and complain that the market is impossible to play.

There are literally HUNDREDS of trading strategies that you can use.

Even methods that can defeat front running.

The market is perfectly healthy.  Yes it is overdue for a small fall.  Maybe even a thousand or two.

But there is absolutely no reason to proclaim the market is worthless or not worth time and effort.


How long will you all keep QQ'ing that the market is impossible to participate in?

Yes there is gold and silver manipulation, but wtf do you expect banks to do?

All ow gold and silver to sky rocket thus quickening the death of the dollar?

Do you REALLY want to experience hyper inflation quickly?  NO.

MOREOVER, the longer gold and silver stay low, the longer smart, courageous, motivated people have to wake up and understand they need to buy gold and silver at these artificially low prices.


You would rather pull up the ladder and leave all the younger people who have a chance to wake up still?

What a crock of shit!  There is still plently of time which will allow would be muppets to wake up and protect their money.

You seem to proclaim the market end is just around the corner!  But you are always wrong!

Stop calling the death of the markets! when they are alive and healthy.  & stop mistreating them like they should be crashed into the ground just b/c BBKing didn't give you QE.  You are like spoiled children.

What you should do?  Be responsible. Don't try to crash the market into bearitory.  Move to create fair market value.  Don't expect FMV to exist in metals.  & treat QE like it should be used.  To prevent a 2008 plunge.  btw market's got an 80% chance of crashing tomorrow.

No hate here. For those who haven't noticed, everyone is "in" the game, whether we pretend we aren't or not. Thanks to our central planners destroying the store of value aspect of our money.

The "game" can and is played by everyone connected to it - and that is all of us - whether we like it or not.

The only choice is to play it smart or be consumed by it.

Agreed.  I like to be delta neutral - long stock, long puts, zero delta.

Careful not to get Corzined. But how can you be careful about that? I guess one way would be to keep investments running out of profits. That if the loss happens to quick to get out of you already have your money out.

Sure the market is alive... but healthy?  It's all about figuring out the fraud now.  Incorporating fraud and the false economy of America into your business analysis is what's required in this market.  Janet Tavakoli -"Fraud As a Business Model"   There was a time when I frequented a horse track in Illinois when I was a teen and an old-timer told me the only way to make money at this particular track was to "FIGURE OUT HOW THEY'RE GOING TO CHEAT."  That's some of the best advice I've ever heard.  In today's market it's the only rule that guides me.  Figure out how they're going to cheat.  My Aug FB Puts thank you.

I used to think the powers in charge were biding their time, getting these extensions and setting themselves up to make it through the collapse......

"Of course this time is different, right?"

F*ck no, Tyler.

cocoablini's picture

Notice amplitude of the rise and fall is getting smaller. FOMC and FED having little effect -like a heroin addict. Need more frequent or bigger injections to maintain a similar high. Everytime is different...the results still end up being a government/banking class turbocharged assisted deflationary crash.

Don't worry, they're working on the new & improved "Must fight terrorists or they'll kill us all" drug.

Then the sheeple will forget all about the placebos that Benron hands out.

I watched a driver carefully fill the roulette table with bets.

So did everyone else. It took 10 minutes to load the entire table with chip stacks.


The wheel spun, the ball picked a spot and that was that.


So many chips disappeared and a few large ones showed up. To this day I am not sure who won. The house or the driver. I ought to try it sometime one day.

Goosing the market at <3% off the highs will only be seen as political and too much of the *cough* data *cough* has come in not as damning as expected.  Also, they haven't jawboned it enough.  We need some more, "they've got the market's back" and are prepared to act BS.

I love the name and share the sentiment.  Diversification over, not of, hedging.

No. Next question.

no QE. I'm sick of all this pimp talk on the QE bullshit to drive up prices only to see them come down after a dose of reality.


THEY WILL NOT QE BEFORE THE ELECTION... AND... They know what you know and will want to get more bang for the buck; so we'll be hurt'n beg'n like ho with her mouth open, before QE number 3 comes... WHY?

cause, third time is the charm... everyone will get it, the US of A is finished.

I am beginning to believe the only stores of value left are ammo and food.

Perfect set up for a gold smash and grab when they take it all down off of a 150 to 200 point controlled plunge in /ES

Winston Churchill's picture

My thought also.

Gold raid tomorrow if they stick to form.

Every time Bernanke speaks or the FOMC meets.

I just do not trust this gold 'market' enough to short it.One day its going to go

vertical when the banks cash out of the ponzi,and pile into physical.


Bastiat's picture

They'll be well into the physical before it goes vertical.

sabra1's picture

gold will go vertical when the fed seizes all your golds!

malikai's picture

Since when are the FED guys scuba divers?

Al Huxley's picture

I won't short it, but I agree that it's a good idea to be prepared to buy on these FOMC days.  These clowns pull the same trick over and over.

Meesohaawnee's picture

agreed. . but romney too much of a dumbshit to know that a QE basically is setting the election. If there were no QE OT, things with markets and election would be a whole lot different.

lolmao500's picture

Short gold and silver, as always.

The world has food inflation tsunami headed towards the shores greater than any seen in a generation. Unleash QE3 Daddy Bernanke and set the world on fire. This way you will not be tarnished by history because records will be ashes.

Can someone confirm if anything is happening with gold and silver CME margins this week?  I'm sure I saw a post here a few weeks ago linking to a notice on the CME website about expiry of margins or something on 5/8/12?  I can't find it now, and there isn't anything on the CME website.  

I know they reduced the margins earlier in the year as they were clearly losing business after the MF Global fiasco, but did this reduction have a time limit?  Because if so, when that time limit expires it would equate to a margin HIKE!  Which of course would fit their purposes perfectly just at the right moment.  But maybe I hallucinated the post.  I actually don't see how it would help their business at all if they increase margins again, but anyway.  Hopefully I misread the whole thing.
