Watch Barton Biggs Predict The Rosy Future: The Sequel

Tyler Durden's picture

For those who didn't get their share of laughs listening to Barton Biggs yesterday on CNBC, and his prediction of a 7-9% rally in three weeks (make that 9-11% as of today), here is your repeat chance to do just that as he has a 3:00 pm appearance on Bloomberg TV today. Incidentally, Barton will be absolutely correct if next Tuesday the Fed announces that QE3 is starting. Of course gold will be at $2000 to celebrate the Fed pushing its balance sheet over $4 trillion. Otherwise, the outlook is not so rosy...

ya so Barton can be  a bit of a knob, but effing Rosie was shouting suckers rally at S&P 700, what's good for the goose...


and then Rosie back 3 months ago on April 27 (S&P 1355) had this to say

“On a very near-term basis, and despite my long-standing macro concern list, which has not gone away, it does look like the market is set to rise further.  The technicals are suggesting as much, though I do await what Walter Murphy may have to say on the matter.  I had said before that a breakout to new highs led by higher volume would be an important technical signpost.  Well, we achieved that Holy Grail yesterday – both in level terms and with respect to the change.  This is not throwing in the towel, it is an acknowledgment of what the market internals are flashing at the current time from a purely tactical and technical standpoint….

Rosie was also bullish on gold and 2 out of 3 isn't bad.   Plus, we all know equity money is the stupidest money.

qe3 has to be trillion + to move stocks, even then he ain't going to see a major rally, or new highs.

Let's just start a QE and let the presses run untill there's no more plutonium to power them up.

it won't be a number, it will be a state of mind

qe3 will be a special  purpose vehicle that is self funded and will be used as required to bring stability to the financial markets and create an environment that will be conducive to employment

still can't believe I bought some more gold this morning!  can I time it or what.

DID you hear that as well? Bloomberg just said people want assets with little to no risk, like US GOV. DEBT BILLS? and they sell risky Gold to get T-Bills.

This all can`t be true. i lost really a lot of money in mining stocks today. but 5 min. listing to Bloomberg is so funny it still makes me laugh. thank you bloomberg tv team.

Geithner likely to stay as T. SEC. , well ENRON CFO was smarter, left ponzi before it collapsed

CNBC 3:08 pm est "Are we gonna see this "soft patch" impact the cash story which has been the best part of this recovery?" Maria Bartaromo. Recovery? Soft Patch?

CNBC covers all (one) sides of the market...  The oversold condition and the buying opportunities. The earnings beats and the "historically" low PE's.  Without a moments grasp of the "outside Wall Street" world.  Using government numbers to give you sound analysis along the way. Liesman explaining the prudence of Central management. 

I watched CNBC continue to endorse the market in 2000, too, all the way to oblivion.  Now I have hedged and diversified assets, not just equities.

Caviat Emptor, baby.

My coffee-snorting moment this morning came when Melissa Lee asked Ron Paul (I shit you not) "why would anyone want to buy gold when the US has so little control over it?" 

My wife and I just looked at each other and said in unison:  "you just answered your own question you dumb bitch!" 

Talk about epic stupidity.

We know Barton.  He really should think about (or his partners should think about) asking him to retire.  Or. at least serve as emeritus.  That was actually a very embarrassing interview for him.  Stanley retired last year at the right time.

Nah, these are the kind of guys who don't "embarrass." He's probably drinking his Scotch and wondering why the hell the market didn't listen to him.

Moral of the story.. when Biggs is bearish, buy and when Rosie turns slightly bullish, sell.

oogs66's picture

and when janjuah calls short term one way, and long term the other way, don't pat his back 2 weeks later when he claims he called it perfectly!

from joe lavorgna's soul twin:

"Barclays is very bullish, market ecxeptinally rich, exceptional value" Barry Knapp, head of U.S. equity strategy at Barclays Capital  said "HFT leading indicators show improving consumer...NFP will be improving tomorrow...will show stabalization...if you sell stocks at these're betting on a US recession...40-50% chance of recession is way to high, way to high...QE2 gave a positive monetary outlook..."
