Bear . Congress seems to be deadlocked in debt ceiling talks.
Truck Tonnage Report is up because they're delivering all those unemployment checks!
Nah, truck tonnage is up because that top .01% is living high on the hog and maybe some exports.
I was reading a Krugman (Khazar) blog entry at the fascist NYTimes and the most recommended comment was, "Only stupid people buy gold".
S&P500 monthly chart shows a series of broadening patterns - aka megaphone wedges.
The three broadening formations reveal an unstable market where buyers and sellers battle for control...
Looks like many are de-stressing over the weekend.
When I saw this, I thought that the BoE was making a dramatic advert for ZH...
Physical catastrophes alert us to the costs of ignoring these events, of normalising deviance. There is nothing normal about recent deviations in financial markets. The race to zero may have contributed to those abnormalities, adding liquidity during a monsoon and absorbing it during a drought. This fattens tail risk. Understanding and correcting those tail events is a systemic issue. It may call for new rules of the road for trading. Grit in the wheels, like grit on the roads, could help forestall the next crash.

Meanwhile the hippies in San Fran business district make their own take on "The Race to Zero" (I presume to 0% carbon emissions, which is a scientifically impossible goal if you employ people who, like, breathe)
So.. will HFTs, Hackers or Hippies win the race to zero?
(apologies to Tyler, who will know all of this already - he is well mentioned by Nanex, which is where the BoE speech caught my eye. I've also not done a search, so might be reposting links / story...)
