  • Buy US Bonds! [View instapost]
    I find it ironic that you are mocking despite the fact I have a significantly better track record than you. If your bearish fundamental thesis is truly correct, you should be able to directly short the market with confidence instead of just cowering in bonds (my thesis is such that it allows for lower bond yields and higher equities prices). If there is indeed no padding of bad macro prints and so forth, the markets should head lower. If however, I am correct, then this market should see ~1700 by November of this election year. I will take the opposite position of the same proposed trade (and go long on equities). Give the market about 4-5 months and when you are in the poor house (-30% from this point), I will be sure to drop a knitting kit off for you!

    It's called manipulation due to excessive liquidity! Stocks can rally while rates continue falling...

  • EU Summit Agreement Bogus: Global Bear Market To Resume [View article]
    Amen brother! All dips in this farce of a (heavily manipulated) market are to be bought indiscriminately especially when majors gaps are filled on the daily chart. The Powers That Be want this puppy to rise for this election year, fight the trend, and you will be destroyed! Fundamentals & Valuations only mean something if this was truly a free market where reality is reflected in the prints we see.

    I like they phrases they have been adding to weekly jobless claims as of 1 1/2 months ago like "There are no special factors in today's report" or "The Labor Department reports nothing unusual in the data" as to reassure investors they didn't fudge the numbers.

    If that was assumed to be true, why would you need to publicly defend yourself?

    With regards to the US equity markets, you needn't worry about Europe until after elections. They can only kick the can so far down the road but they will keep on kicking in the interim. Downside is very limited!

    Like a sheep, you agree with the herd and will be slaughtered alongside all the other bears.

    Yes, go ahead and buy products have an intrinsic value of 0 and hope they go against their natural decay when the world is awash in liquidity with perpetual bailouts and the US government has been consistently heavily padding bad prints to make the US look a lot more resilient than we actually are!

    If everyone is bearish, do you buy or sell? Think about it! Max pain is UP, not down!

    Every time I see your super bearish posts on the front page, I know it's time to buy!

    Thanks for all the well-placed contrarian buy signals!

    US macro downside will be significantly limited by seasonal adjustments as well other fudge factors to pad the numbers and corporate profits won't be as bad as the consensus is expecting. You will be the one out in the streets, jobless from consistently giving out blatantly wrong & false advise, when the SP500 is 1700+ by election day in November! You were wrong then and will be wrong again because you don't understand how the crooked minds of the liars and cheats who move this market think! Bulkowski's Falling Wedge is forming on que & Obama will be re-elected! Ms. Solice will doctor the employment #s to make sure of it!

    The direction of max pain is UP, not down. The wide consensus of bears that agree with you only further illustrates that this market will go MUCH, MUCH higher than anyone has anticipated.

    That being said, a true crash is possibly after November 2012 elections!

  • Spain Facing A Banking Crisis And A Sovereign Crisis At The Same Time [View article]
    This whole charade is a matter of timing. I do receive your free newsletters and frankly, I am tired and sick of hearing how the European crisis is just around the corner which you have been proclaiming for since last year while markets have climbed this wall of worry proving you time and time again wrong. To claim the crisis will come this month or next (when it may come many, many years away) is a statement of pure hubris in that you claim to know more than the markets. Furthermore, you are claiming that you have a near 100% accurate batting average while preaching an imminent Eurozone crisis and the market keeps on climbing. How do you reconcile your extreme bearish position with consistent gains in a clearly defined bullish market? Unless you are pulling a GS where you tell your followers to do one thing and you take the opposite side of the trade, I don't see how that's possible. Also, if that were truly the case, why are you not a billionaire and instead trying to sell your service to the average Joe?

    While you prepare your gullible sheep for a 2008 repeat, I will be positioned to profit from a massive market face-ripping rally in this farce of a market.

  • Weighing The Week Ahead: Chances For An Upside Surprise? [View article]
    Upside surprise? Have you seen the markets since early June? The trend is not going to change any time soon, friend.

  • The Summer Surprise Of 2012, Or The Great Realization [View article]
    Explain to me how investors are pessimistic about equities when market keeps going up? The contrarian trade at this point is not to be long risk imho. Most of the people I know are very long risk assets at this point and expecting significantly more upside.

  • Short the S&P with a target about 5% below current levels, says Goldman's Noah Weisberger, whose worries about the economy just got worse with the collapse in the Philly Fed index.  [View news story]

  • The weakness in the oil market is a warning, says Josh Brown. He sees the weakness as a leading indicator, and as oil prices hit their lowest levels in over a year and a half, it's a sign that global growth is facing some serious headwinds. With the fiscal cliff looming and persistent European troubles that never seem to go away, the energy markets seem to be confirming an inevitable downturn, and Josh, along with a host of other traders, are warning investors to prepare, now.  [View news story]
    the contrarian in me is screaming BUY! BUY! BUY! when I read this article!
