  • Wall Street's job market may be starting to sour - and since it's often ahead of the firing curve, it could mean more certainty of a double-dip recession, and bad news for Main Street jobs.  [View news story]
    Boo hoo.

  • Oh, the humanity? The "Hindenburg Omen," a technical indicator that foreshadows not just a bear market but a stock market crash, is predicting a market meltdown in September. Time to get out of stocks, or just a good conspiracy theory?  [View news story]
    If everyone expects it...the opposite will happen just like the death cross bs that came out at the bottom in July. Whatever.

  • Way too many people are way too complacent this summer, Brett Arends writes, citing 10 reasons to be very, very worried.  [View news story]
    If we couldn't crash in May no way will we now. I see another retest of May's lows and then time to get long most likely some time in October. Bears will be owned badly by year's end, I have zero doubt. Trading this market right here is too frustrating and not worth it.

  • Doug Kass, who called the market bottom, now thinks we're approaching a top: "The economic outlook for the second half of 2010 still looks less than certain, especially relative to the magnitude of the market's rise and to the rise in animal spirits that has accompanied it."  [View news story]
    He said we were at a top a few weeks ago too. Why does anyone pay attention to this Cramerized idiot

  • NY Gov. David Paterson backpedals on a controversial plan to tax hedge fund managers that do business in New York but live elsewhere. Mayor Bloomberg wasn't a big fan of the proposal, having said he "can't imagine why every hedge fund won't pick up tomorrow and leave."  [View news story]
    They all need to be in NYC so they have easy access to meeting with each other and colluding on their next moves as a group.

  • People are starting to pay attention to Apple's (AAPL) iPhone fiasco after Consumer Reports says a hardware flaw is creating the reception problem, which Zero Hedge says makes Steve Jobs and his team look like "liars." The stock bears watching now, as "fans of fads are known to turn from docile lambs to vicious hyenas once a tipping point is reached... and [today's news has] tipped the scales just a little in the wrong direction."  [View news story]
    Say what you will but I have no doubt it will see an all time high soon, probably next week after earnings. I choose the money making side.

  • Individuals are earning at record levels and moving into a more stable financial foundation. Corporate cash positions are high, with little risk of sharp resource reductions. U.S. states and EU nations are reducing budget gaps. Just a few of the reasons to take comfort that 2010 is not 2008.  [View news story]
    I have news for you. Not even people on Wall Street are making money. You are kidding yourselves if you don't realize they have been getting slaughtered since May. The next down leg is probably going to be due to fund liquidations a la 2008. Stay tuned.

  • Is the sky falling, or is the sun shining? Paul Krugman says we face nothing less than a "third depression," while John Paulson thinks the risk of a double-dip is "less than 10%" and "we're about to turn a corner."  [View news story]
    Paulson was more interesting when no one knew who he was. Now I use him as a contrarian indicator.

  • The stock market has priced in the worst news, resulting in attractive valuations that should see a rally of at least 16% by year's end, Abby Joseph Cohen says. Indeed, with companies optimistic about Q2 numbers, some say stocks have room to rise. RBS' Andrew Roberts, expecting a "collapse far beyond what even some equity bears anticipate," would beg to differ.  [View news story]
    Yes awesome earnings. I guess that's why both have gone straight down ever since their release! Lol.

    Tack. FDX already reported poor earnings 2 weeks ago. And LOW did as well last month, they sucked. Yeah next month is going to be fun.

    I have a question? What about NKE RIMM BBBY FDX BBY. Next month's earnings will most likely turn the markets into a dark evil sea of red.

  • Is a Recession Looming? [View article]
    All one needs to do is look at the weekly charts of all major indexes to know this market is going much lower in the months ahead. This is not like any pullback we've had since the March lows but more like the weakness we had in the spring/summer 2008. See you much lower. Whether that means a recession or not doesn't matter to me as a trader.

  • Just in case you thought the housing market wasn't bad enough already, Barry Ritholtz believes home prices are still too high and will sink below historic levels. "Without the heavy hand of the government intervening, the residential real estate market is about to experience what price discovery [through basic supply and demand] is all about."  [View news story]
    Barry also thinks BP is a "value play". Whatever

    Who cares. It's not like he's going to stop the spill all by himself anyway. The witch hunt is getting ridiculous.
