  • Chicago Fed's Charles Evans fires back at QE3 critics, warning of a U.S. "lost decade" if the Fed limits itself to modest policy actions. There's no surprise here, as the hard-core dove Evans finds it “essential" to do as much as possible now to prop up the economy; his most noteworthy comment is that 3% inflation "not an unreasonable cap" on policy. [View news story]
    Amen brother!
    Amen!

    Hey buffoon, we are already into a lost decade and with the garbage you and bubble blowin' Ben are unleashing,
    we have another lost God only knows how long to look forward to!

    Oh, excuse me!
    Mitt Romney has vowed to get rid of Bubble Blowin Ben and the QE Stun gun,
    so we can look forward to a "House Cleaning" in 40 days!

    Hey Mitt,
    how about Rand Paul to replace "Tax Cheat Timmy"
    and for all the Ron Paul fans,
    Ron Paul at the fed!

    STRONG DOLLAR and Global Respect is long overdue!

    God save the republic!

  • Market recap: Stocks closed at session lows, with the S&P 500 and Nasdaq logging their worst day in two months, as Caterpillar's tepid outlook sparked concerns about global growth and Philly Fed's Plosser said the new bond-buying program is unlikely to help much. Scenes of austerity protests in Spain may have added to afternoon pessimism. NYSE losers led winners three to one. [View news story]
    Excuse to take profits?
    But seriously,
    if you look at the internals of APPLE (which basically is the QQQ's),
    the chart is looking very weak.
    Multiple points of negative divergence!

    This market is poised for some sort of pull back.
    How deep?
    We'll see when the profit taking starts and just how much greed as opposed to fear sets in!

  • Bernanke Guarantees Zero Percent Chance Of Deflation [View article]
    Bernanke has CAUSED the deflation that is all around us right now!
    Look at the slack in the labor force.
    Corporate profits?
    Yeah right!
    How about profits have peaked over the last three years of buying back shares and cutting their way to profitability!
    End user demand?
    Non existent!

    If I can't eat it,
    I don't give a rats a** about it!
    Deflation is the nightmare that has Bubble Blowin' Ben and his QE Stun gun out and distorting our once "FREE MARKET SYSTEM"!!!

    Deleveraging at all levels will happen,
    with or without the mindless and senseless actions of not only the worst central banker in history but with the most corrupt American administration in the republics history!

    The depression is here folks,
    and Ben Bernanke is the one MOST responsible!

    Let us not fail the challenge of the republic's survival because we chose to sit down!

  • In nearly every instance during the last 50 years when stocks rallied in the face of deteriorating economic statistics (represented by the PMI), writes tradefast, it was stocks being proven right, as subsequent months saw equities continue higher while PMIs reversed course. [View news story]
    This is of no use in today's fed manipulated markets!
    During the time period in question,
    the Free Market System was alive and functioning properly!

    Since we adopted an "Interventionist" and therefore NON Free Market System, you cannot use the old metrics!

    We now have a fed Chairman who perjured himself in front of congress and swore under oath the Fed would NOT monetize the debt!

    We are in a never never land of fed induced perversion to our capitalist system and have a sitting president aligning himself with a group, O.W.S. that calls for the destruction of the capitalist system!

    I could go on,
    but you get the point....
    God save the republic!

  • The Fed's latest QE program poses risks to the bank's credibility, says Philadelphia Fed President Plosser, as the policy will likely fail to deliver a substantive impact on employment. What will Bernanke and crew do then? One editor's guess: Double down. [View news story]
    If the man had any morals,
    if he had any virtue at all,
    he would admit his folly and the utter failure QE was / is and resign!
    Right after he begged the American Working Man's / Woman's FORGIVNESS!
    Bernanke is part of the progressive cabal and needs to GO!

    B.T.W.
    The fed has NO CREDITABILITY AT ALL!

    God save the republic!

  • "(QE3) is explicitly linked to what happens with the economy," says San Francisco Fed President Williams. The MBS purchases will continue or even expand to include other assets "until the job market looks substantially healthier." Sounding like he believes what he is saying, Williams calls the program an "automatic stabilizer," able to be tweaked depending on the fickle statistics-based surveys of the BLS each month. [View news story]
    Rubbish,
    garbage in!

    Rubbish out!

    The world is going to hell in a hand basket and our President only has time for the T.V. show "The View?"
    God help us all,
    if we don't right the horrible mistake the people made in 2008,
    the republic falls!

    The Muslim Brotherhood and "The Project" will be our fate!
    Loss of freedom is never regained!

  • Fade Mondays in 2012. When the first trading session of the week has been down this year, the rest of the week averaged a +0.52% return, according to Bespoke. When the first session was green, the rest of the week averaged a -0.14% return. [View news story]
    This is the most STUPID thing I have seen in some time!
    Does anyone over at S.A. actually screen this garbage out of Bespoke for value?

    My Magic 8 ball says that we are going to see a market down day that results in a circuit breaker being tripped!

    Flash crash was a preview,
    trash like this is why the average retail investor wants NOTHING to do with the RIGGED equity markets!

  • Asian shares are broadly higher, given a shot in the arm by the BOJ's announcement of more money printing, with the Nikkei reaching its highest level in over four months.

  • The BOJ joins the Fed, ECB and other central banks in announcing further easing, unexpectedly saying it will increase its asset-purchase program to ¥80T ($1.01T) from ¥70T, and lengthen the program by six months to the end of 2013. The BOJ also keeps its key interest rate unchanged at 0.0%-0.1%, and downgrades its economic assessment, saying "the pick-up in economic activity has come to a pause." (PR[View news story]
    ..And this is to be construed as a positive?

    The markets rally on this perversion?

    Has wrong truly become right,
    has our leadership been so blinded as to push this on its people?
    Is there no hope for a return to sanity?
    Will the true savers,
    over a lifetime of work,
    ever see their sacrifice rewarded?
    Or stolen from them by some immoral unelected cabal's scheming!

    The fall of capitalism,
    what will its replacement look like?
    We may not like what we see!
    Freedom lost, never to be regained!

  • Chicago's board of education and its teachers union reportedly reach a tentative agreement on a new contract that may end the five-day teachers strike. A union official tells Crain's Chicago Business that outlines of the deal will be brought to the union's house of delegates later today. [View news story]
    Unless the thuggs are willing to GIVEBACKS,
    let them stay out!

    They are an abject failure that are only interested with their own largess!
    The kids?
    What do the kids have to do with this?
    Greed and corruption!
    I want it,
    so I'll take it!
    O.W.S. and its brethren's rallying cry.

    That IS the horror that the progressive machine has turned our teachers union into!
    There are MANY, MANY, good decent Americans in unions!
    But I am willing to wager,
    not all members are onboard with the tactics of the likes of Richard Trumka, Stephen Lerner and Andy Stern!
    The Obama administration has their own version of the "Three Amigos", sad part is these Amigo's are Banditio's out to rob the American Taxpayer Blind!

  • QE3′s benefits to the real economy are debatable, but there's no doubt that as oil prices rise, higher pump prices are a blow to consumers. A successful QE that helps housing could trigger fundamental economic improvements to negate or outweigh higher oil prices; on the flip side, sustained high prices could seep into the cost structure of a broad range of other goods and services. [View news story]
    DEBATABLE?

    What is NOT debatable is the fed and Bubble Blowin' Ben,
    ARE the economy and the "ONCE FREE MARKET SYSTEM",
    capitalism is over folks!

    We now have THE FED!
    Its new and improved,
    don't you know?

    This road to perdition is paved with the death of liberty and freedom!
    This corruption that is legion at the executive level,
    flows straight down hill to the Federal Reserve and then to its putrid end with tax cheat Timmy Geithner!

    America needs a LEADER!
    We need Morals and a code of conduct!
    A standard, an ethic that is no where to be found with the current progressives on both side of the aisle!
    John McCain, Lindsey Graham, and all the R.I.N.O's included!

    This republic stands or falls with the election rapidly drawing near!
    Let us not fail this challenge because we sat down!

    God save the republic!

  • Egan-Jones downgrades its U.S. debt rating to AA- from AA. "Some market observers contend that a country issuing debt in its own currency can never default since it can simply print," but Reinhart and Rogoff show 70 out of 320 defaults since 1800 have been on local currency public debt. [View news story]
    David Stockman was just interviewed by David Asman(who I am no big fan of) but a very worthy take on what has been perpetrated by this fed in the death of capitalism!
    Check it out on foxbuisness,
    go to their site shortly,
    it should be up soon!

    Bernanke is the biggest detriment to our economy, next to the Obummer foreign policy!

    Thank God for a MAN who says what he means and means what he says!
    Sean Egan is saying what needs to be said with regard to the total abdication of the moral and virtue that Bubble Blowin' Ben swore to uphold!

    Bernanke is no longer working for the best interests of the working man / woman who is being KILLED with his perverted policies!
    A downgrade might just jar him back into reality!

    Romney in a landslide!
    Rand Paul replaces Bubble blowin' Ben and
    Ron Paul replaces Tax Cheat Timmy!

    The republic does not stand much more of this debauchery.
    Our embassies worldwide are under attack and Obama and Clinton prove to the world their total lack of any adult leadership or comprehension of the magnitude of the problem!

    God help us!

  • A check back to QE2 found stocks rising on speculation of an announcement, and spiking on the day of the announcement - very similar to this time around. The next month, however, saw a sizable sell the news downturn before the effect of the Fed action kicked in, sending stocks on a big multi-month rally. [View news story]
    Yah, and...

    Look,
    if you want to put your hopes on this sugar high while our Ambassadors are killed and we get the President more interested on his Letterman appearance,
    I guess a fool and his money are truly parted!

    All the metrics suggest risk / reward is to the downside.
    2007 was NOT that long ago!
    Sadly,
    we have learned nothing!
