  • Chart Of The Week: Gold's Triple Top [View article]
    IMHO, chart reading in gold and silver issues (indexes, ETFs, miners, et.al.) is largely a waste of time. Why? Because of the pervasive manipulation which has been going on for over 3 years. Matters not who the perpetrators are, it is just so predictable and evident to anyone who has watched these charts for a long time. Comparing what was once a free market before the ongoing financial crisis began, with what has occurred the last 3 years, is revealing. For instance, the metals action preceeding FOMC events.

    Thus reading charts of precious metals is no longer meaningful.

    of course, democ-rats would like to take your 401K and IRA $ and use it for: more state and local gov UNION worker bailouts, more foodstamps, free cellphones, condoms, birthcontrol, green energy, shovels for ready projects which Obama keeps stomping on... you know, all the good stuff to keep the sheeple occupied, distracted. lots of $ to be grabbed by the criminal filth in the WH, congress left of the aisle.

    "....Transocean is the largest offshore drilling company in the world, with a market cap of $28 billion and significant drilling interests in the Gulf of Mexico. ..."

    Hmm, what do you mean by "significnt drilling interests"? My information says that Transocean moved most of their super-rigs to offshore Brazil after contracting with Petrobras. That removes them from the possibility of taking up new work in the GOM for the next 4-5 years.

    You sound jaded from the pervasive inaction of the ruling Democrat congress. I predict that the actions and direction of the new congress will surprise you.

    If your current pseudonym is any indication of the flavor of KoolAid you're drinking, you are very likely to be shocked at the election's outcome. Trying to lump both parties agenda, priorities and beliefs is a form of denial on the liberals failure (which you may be acknowledging).

    Rich: Sorry to disappoint you, but the entire government will be Republican after a 10 year absense. Reason? The entire administration and senate inaction/disregard on: jobs, financial crisis, financial fraud, border control, security of diplomatic corps, has reached intolerant levels and the voters are going to make changes. Obama will be soundly thrashed by Romney and the rest of congress will coat-tail into office behind Romney. Just watch.

  • Trading The U.S. Presidential Election [View article]
    keu4: You're obviously an acolyte for the Hopey Changey prez else you would have been paying attention to the REAL issue facing voters: JOBS. This election isn't so much about lesser issues like tax laws, marriage, abortion, Libya, as it about the 30 million or so voters who need a (better) job. They are all going to be voting their wallets/purses.

    Romney 58% Obama 40%

    "..I do not see this as a possibility this time..."
    Well, take off the rose-colored glasses and put down the KoolAid. Romney is steadily moving ahead and by Nov 6, it will be a landslide for him 58% - 40%.

  • U.S. Government's Intent To Pursue Charges Could Sink BP [View article]
    The enforcement of EPA regulations against BP for ongoing leakage of the Macondo well offshore Louisiana would be a fitting final act by the Obama administration before they leave office in January. They have so little successful accomplishments to point to as it is.

  • Massive Discrepancy In July Employment Report Requires Explanation [View article]
    Lying filth... all of it coming out of the administration is tripe, fecal matter, putrid vomit. Obama is from CHICAGO folks. They are NOT known in politics for being candid.

    Be very careful when you go vote in November.

    If you have any shadow of doubt as to who is reporting truthful jobs numbers, Trust but VERIFY. There is ample data available to dig out more accurate figures than what the Bureau of Labor Statistics emit. They are a department who is run by the Secretary of Labor Hilda Solis. She in turn, reports to President Obama. He of the forked toungue. He of the serial lying.

  • Jobless Claims Reverting To A Meaner Mean [View article]
    I would prefer to see higher UE trends marching all the way into November. My perception of a way out of this quagmire, is to rout Obama in his bid for re-election and then change course to the correct direction to recusitate our economy and begin to make necessary fiscal changes.

  • JP Morgan raises estimates and pounds the table on Ulta Salon (ULTA +1.1%), touting the stock as its best idea for 2012 on the back of the company's solid Q4 result last week.  [View news story]
    Ha Ha Ha ... That is hilarious! JPMorgan is pissed off because a bunch of hedgies and assorted shorts pounded ULTA down after earnings release last Thursday.

    This is the same bunch of thugs who are carrying the water for Ben Bernanke and the Fed criminal enterprise by holding the largest short position in silver thereby suppressing the silver futures market.

    What goes around, comes around.

  • Unlike many others (I, II), Mark Cuban hopes Yahoo (YHOO) takes Facebook (FB) to the cleaners with its patent suit. His reason? Cuban believes a giant verdict in Yahoo's favor would make the public aware of "just how horrific our patent law is." While believing patent laws can protect innovators at times, he thinks they're far more likely to be "anti-competitive, corruptive, [and] impede creativity and innovation." (also)  [View news story]
    BS... Yahoo had a large time advantage on Internet commerce and they utterly squandered it, went to sleep at the wheel without a single improvement in the webportal idea. They deserve to be run over by other agressive, risktakers.

    Hey Michael... interesting article.
