  • The bears could lose control of the market this week, Jim Cramer says, and if they do, be prepared for a blastoff in cloud computing; breakouts in areas such as railroads, insurers and auto parts; and a bottom in the big banks and home builders.  [View news story]
    Thanks for the laugh. Jimmy still waiting for the housing bottom you called in 2008 or was it 2007.

  • Felix Zulauf, who nailed the 2009 rally, warns that the end-game is near: "Our system is basically exhausted. Our authorities try to prolong the good times... by printing paper money, by going into more debt, to support the system and get it growing. But it won't get back to where we've come from. At some point of time something has to give." (via)  [View news story]
    I've noticed those that supposedly nailed the 2009 bottom have been wrong on their bearish calls this year. Goes to show you, don't trust the TV entertainers. If you can't figure things out on your own pick a different vocation.

  • 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

  • "We're in the eye of the storm," Todd Harrison believes, "a relative calm between the first phase of the financial crisis and the cumulative comeuppance that'll flush - and perhaps reset - the system." But that's not all bad, he says: "If the greatest opportunities are bred from the most formidable obstacles, we're about to enter a most auspicious era."  [View news story]
    He did say the same thing in early 2000s. He's been bearish that long. I am not saying he is wrong at this juncture but guys who are always on one side are useless when it comes to making money trading.

  • Wall Street’s moneyed elite are now feeling more confident, conspicuously opening their wallets for fancy parties, cosmetic surgery and Hamptons rentals. Meanwhile, in the rest of America, unemployment nears 10%, millions of homeowners can't pay their mortgages... and small businesses are canceling Christmas.  [View news story]
    Good for Wall Streeters. They tricked and stole from the retail sheep fair and square.

  • 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.

  • 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]
    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.

  • "Well, to quote Tony Hayward, he's got his life back." - Rahm Emanuel on This Week after BP's (BP) CEO was seen Saturday watching a yacht race one day after being removed from day-to-day responsibility for the disaster.  [View news story]
    Who cares. It's not like he's going to stop the spill all by himself anyway. The witch hunt is getting ridiculous.

  • Jon Stewart's lampoon of Ben Bernanke and QE: We're "not printing money," we're "imagineering money." Zero Hedge is not particularly amused: "Presumably laughing as one's net worth is getting destroyed makes it more palatable. Just wait as the country collapses into uncontrollable hysteric guffaws as the 30-year mortgage passes 5%, then 6%, then 7%, etc."  [View news story]
    Zero Hedge sucks donkey ballz. Who cares what they say. Lose money much idiots?

  • 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.

  • 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.

    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.

  • 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.
