    "Where did the ammo come from?"

    That $80 Billion a month we taxpayers gave the banksters. They finally put it to work. Now just eat your Soma and all will be fine.

    On the dip-

    Took small positions in (AGNC) and in (EWGS)

    Both up marginally.

    I note that (MEMP) is up 5% today and (VNR) is up 8%.

    There are some signs of life among the mid and small caps as well.

    >SHB- Thanks-

    Re: Hussman

    A really sobering article. I haven't been able to grok how the scenarios would play out under varying circumstances but I have come to the conclusion that the world economy- especially our domestic component is nothing but a house of cards. I would be most interested in what kind of strategic and tactical advice Hussman is giving his followers. I would bet it would definitely not be to average down.

    Agree. That has always been the solution, just no one wanted to do it. What are the options?

    None.

  • Bear Markets And Economic Contractions [View article]
    The differences between 2008-2009 and the present are significant. Taken within a vacuum gives one some measure of comfort to be sure. The real, not so quiet elephant in the room is China. How severe an economic impact is their indicated drop in growth? The recent currency devaluation should give some thought on that. They are in panic mode now.

    Never before has the entire world been so economically linked to the country with over 25% of the world's population and close to the largest economy of the world to boot. Certainly not as it was in 2008.

    I would love to see some models showing their flagging economy’s impact on the rest of the world.

    Cash is king right now.

    >Mark-

    My feelings have been influenced to a great extent by China action. I felt that the currency move was a desperation event and I decided at that moment to liquidate everything- and did. Boy am I glad I took that action. What I have left was up the last four days. Mostly sock drawer stuff.

    I think anyone thinking the worst is over could be in for a rude awakening. I see no reason to take a chance now since whatever gain would be knee-jerk without any fundamental evidence to support it. Trading with a finger right on the trigger would be the way to go.

    We are not looking at a growth revival for quite a while- not nationally nor internationally. Big oil dividend cuts will be the straw.

    Cash is keen right now!

    He should! You da man!

    Just saw where the reborn (ACI) is UP 35%. Say what?

    Wonder if Gartman is holding that as well.

    Re:Shorting the S&P-

    Not this little black duck. Overpriced yes- Manipulatable? You bet! Much more easily than the NDQ or the DJIA. Put a couple or three banksters together working a dozen stocks and "We have an S&P rally, folks!" The crops are saved.

    Hmm.

    Market breadth leaves something to be desired I think.

    You should pay attention to my crystal ball fortune telling. After all I called six of the last three corrections. Nobody came anywhere near those stats!

    LOL!
