  • Data Delivers, But Lagarde Sours Mood [View article]
    Markets are in a downtrend. Expect Wall Street to push for ferocious bounces to sell to the gullible as alaways.

  • How Low Can These Stocks Go If European Debt Is Downgraded? [View article]
    Ah, what a pleasure and delight to see the bank stocks being reduced to penny stocks.

    The banking oligarchs and Wall Street are receiving Karma for their atrocious attacks to the American people. Their insatiable greed doesn't has boundaries.

    I am waiting for BAC to read $7 to short it again.

  • What's Driving Markets These Days? Not Economic Data [View article]
    HFT controls most of the volume in any trading day, that's why you see the bipolar maniacal responses and oscillations.

  • Amid all the gloom and doom about unemployment, signs are emerging that things actually may be getting better. The drop in weekly jobless claims to 2008 levels is one indicator pointing to a slightly improving employment picture; others include gains in small business hiring, a pickup in online job advertising and an increase in job openings.  [View news story]
    @terry

    American families are not feeling better at all. Material things like cars, and iPads do not make us feel more happy. In fact, people buying things like crazy have a low self-esteem. Americans feel the rising grocery prices, they see how everything goes up in price, but their wages not. They see how the banking oligarchs were saved by the taxpayers, and taxpayers were let to suffer. Americans see the rotten financial system in which those well connected can break laws without a single punishment. Americans see how the American dream was an illusion. Americans see how the financial industry works. They see an insatiable, disgusting and immoral greed. America is not getting better.

    I don't know why Americans have to resort to politics always. Politics, and especially this dinamic of the hegemony of both parties have divided us. To tackle our problems we need to be united.

    If we see the statistics deeper, we see a labor participation rate dropping, which exaggerates any weak gain in employment. Jobs growth is lower than population growth, which increases pressure on society order. Not a bright outlook.

    I am looking careful at industrial production, it has been a turning point before, and it is signaling persistent slowdown.

  • Incoming PM Rajoy's plan to wipe clean Spanish bank balance sheets with the creation of a "bad bank" is facing opposition from larger lenders like Santander (STD) and BBVA. The big players feel the exercise would taint their reputation and keep alive excess capacity in the Spanish banking system that would otherwise whither away. Not to mention, where is money coming from to finance such an operation?  [View news story]
    "where is money coming from to finance such an operation?".....

    Let me guess....the taxpayers....

    Socialize the losses, privatize the gains, keep the plutocracy alive. But be careful bank oligarchs, Spain has a lot of young people unemployed.....

  • Wall Street Breakfast: Must-Know News [View article]
    "European banks will need to raise almost €200B in new capital, or cut their balance sheets by nearly 20%, in order to meet Basel III"....


    A perfect excuse, to shrug away the requirements and leave the banks run amok again. They would say "we need the banks, they are important".. So leveraging
    up to the hill to speculate in commodities, fixed income, equities and whatever aberration they invent is important for our Economy? We only need the banks to lend to small businesses and people, that's all.

    Like Jefferson once said: " believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around [the banks] will deprive the people of all property until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered. The issuing power should be taken from the banks and restored to the people, to whom it properly belongs"....

    At least the HFT machines believe the numbers, and in this system that is what it counts.

  • The Europeans are nowhere near a debt solution because they lack "cohesion and courage," observes Steven Rattner. It was just another kick the can down the road moment last week, and they're still nowhere near solving any of their problems. With an almost a 1:1 correlation between the euro and the S&P 500, Rattner says he's actually surprised there hasn't been a bigger selloff. (video)  [View news story]
    Who the hell is talking about the shareholders having a pass??

  • The parallels between events unfolding today and those which brought upon "The Long Depression" of 1873 are facinating, says MarketWatch contributor Matthew Lynn. Cheap money, banking de-regulation and an ill-fated attempt to merge European currencies in the late 19th century created a bubble that, when it burst, brought about an economic collapse that lasted an epic twenty-three years. Past as prelude, perhaps?  [View news story]
    A quote and a proverb for those who still blame others:


    "All blame is a waste of time. No matter how much fault you find with another, and regardless of how much you blame him, it will not change you"...Wayne Dyer

    "Blame is a lazy man's wages"....

    It is not time for division, it is time for Americans to unite. To face the problems and search for solutions.

    "Europeans are nowhere near a debt solution".....

    A debt solution for what? To rescue the banking oligarchs like always? To reward the fraud, corruption, and punish the abididing citizens?

    Protecting the banking oligarchy, extending and pretending is not a solution, everyone with common sense knows it.

    What a sad day for America. More freedom sequestered by those so called democratic leaders......

    How can it be right that the military can arrest you indefinitely without a trial? For me is immoral, and a blow to our freedom.

    In stock related news, the S&P 500 price action is intriguing, in one hand you have underperformance by money managers and in the other deterioration in macro environment. 2011 has been a year to remember.

    Tack, while I agree that people get too dramatic, you have to accept that global growth is slowing down and it is going to get worse.

    And no the world isn't going to end, but equities can go much lower.
