My S&P model is looking apocalyptic right now.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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?

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.

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.

They sucked everyone in with that "Where would the Market Be?" Fed chart that was published a couple of weeks ago.  Now the populis is thinking, "Well the Fed said that we should be in the market the day of announcements, so we must ramp up the ES 60 points prior to the meeting."  I think after the next three days there will be an appendix to that Fed research piece...

This is so obvious. No QE tomorrow. Bernanke talks his balls off about how ready he is to do it. Over the next few weeks we get some green sharts from the data. September Bernanke backs off the QE talk and says he is hopeful the economy is picking up. The market muddles along through it while metals get hammered. Same as it ever was.

Also if he does QE he will set off a major bond selloff as everyone dumps treasuries for risk assets. Maybe thats what he wants but it will only send mortgage rates up so I don't see how he wants that.

You'll get S&P earnings of $100 this year.  The number will be something like $135 in 10 years at around 5% growth annually.  Weather that's adjusted for inflation or not.... it doesn't matter.  With the same average increase in dividends (5% annually) you get an index yield of almost 5% by 2022 if the S&P price stayed the same.

History:  Basically remember that when long term interest rates were something like 7% in 1993 the S&P still sold for around 14X earnings.  Lots of banks on the ropes then, too, with the S&L crisis really close in the rear-view mirror.

High estimate of 14X earnings is S&P 2000 or something close.

Low estimate of S&P at 8X earnings puts us at around 1100 with a 6% current dividend yield 10 years from now with the same low level estimates in mind with profit margins and S&P "earnings multiple" reverting back to the long term mean average using a depression economics scenario.

This compares to  10 year treasury yield of around 1.4% currently.

There you go.  Strap yourself in for the ride of a lifetime and buy the index.  Better than cash, better than bonds, more liquid than real-estate.

Put the rest in metals or "real assets" with a bias toward energy and we talk in another 10 years.

Waiting is the hard part.  Buying the S&P and selling 12 month calls and puts 20% away from current value will probably increase the potential return by 2-3% annually if you're lucky.  Basically a slow lazy process of beating cash and bonds.


DEC-2013 120's and 145's are around $8.00 per contract.  That's $16 in volatility premia.  If all you wanted was to collect the dividend and an additional 5% option premia, you would have a nice return here, and still own the index.  Worse things can happen.  Sell put options and get around double the premia but with the possibility of buying SPY at $130 and then getting "put out" in which cash you basically have $130 - $16 = $114 and you make "a half a percent" plus dividend income for the period.
