  • The S&P 500 will rise 11% next year to 1,379, according to the average of eleven strategists who participated in a Bloomberg survey. If their predictions are correct, it will mark a 53% return for the benchmark index since 2008, the best three-year stretch since the late 1990s.  [View news story]
    it's still got a bit to go up too. They will go up in tandem and a sudden drop in the dollar will begin. It will start and eventually become out of control. It will go up longer than you think though.

  • As many as 138M U.S. shoppers could hit the stores next week looking for Black Friday bargains, according to today's survey by the National Retail Federation. That's 4M more than last year's forecast, and a positive sign for retailers who count on Black Friday sales to kick off the holiday shopping season.  [View news story]
    I don't understand how they come up with these figures? It must be similar to the way money is created -out of thin air. I guess I'm one of the few who feel poorer this year than last.

  • The FDIC proudly says it's stepping up its efforts to bring criminal charges against former execs of failed banks, and to use civil litigation to recover money. Its track record hasn't been great: Despite 300+ bank failures since 2008, not a single high-profile banker has been charged and just two civil lawsuits have been filed.  [View news story]
    So since the TBTF can't fail I guess those guys are innocent and only the little guys get hauled off. At least the FDIC is trying.

    Now if we could only get the SEC to do their job

  • Given the impossibility of one central bank managing the economies of a diverse and fractured continent, Bloomberg's Matthew Lynn says the euro is doomed.  [View news story]
    Sorry, I don't agree with -> "If the Eurozone nations were willing to adopt a US-like structure, they'd have much fewer bumps in the road; but they aren't willing to."

    I think the people of the Eurozone are a bit more tindery (like a fire) than the US. What happens in Europe portends the future of the US.

    The bumps for the US are building but the US is better at kicking the can down the road. The last to fall if you will.

    Good one trainingwheelboy! Get back to the books and look where destroying other places around the world has gotten us. Ohhh.. and don’t forget how great it will be for the American people once Europe is destroyed. I’m sure your average american’t will be doing really well after that.

  • The Commodity Bubble Is Bursting [View article]
    You need to realize there won't be deflation until the crooks running the show are thrown out and trust is restored to the markets. The fraud won't allow deflation to happen.

    Exactly, judge the Fed on their actions and not their words. They are scared sh!tless and will do anything to prop the market. If the market were stable these actions would not be needed. Until the fundimental pilars holding the economy up are replaced i.e. fraud is prosocuted and trust is restored to the markets extreme central bank polocies will continue if you make money during this time, make sure the money you're making isn't being inflated away at a greater rate.

  • Dow Correction Officially Over [View article]
    Should a market be considered a "Bull Market" when the market is subject to currency manipulation?

    I'm having a hard time understanding how all these drastic steps the FED is taking (because the market is tanking) result in a "Bull Market". I believe the deffinition of "Bull Market" should include "Bull Markets may be caused due to fraudulent actions and rampant manipulation by leading economic advisors."

    that would make more s

  • A Warning for the Bulls [View article]
    When I drive by the section 8 Housing in my area, hear their central AC blairing away and see the "unemployed" or "breeders" or whatever the situation may be, in their swimsuits (not a sight to see) bbq'ing food bought with my tax dollars or food stamps or whatever I see a bunch nanny state suckers who I'm sick of supporting. While I bust my butt working. I don't think those people share the same values you and I or our great grandparents share, they do however share the "ENTITLEMENTS" we "share".

  • Top Five Reasons to Trust This Rally [View article]
    IMO Being "bearish" is about things not being the way they were. Eventually you have to come to terms that things will not be how they were, bull or bear. Things have changed for good. If all the stimulus and lay-off's leading to higher profits mean numbers will be good for YOU, be a bull. If you realize things have changed forever, you're probably a bear. The market is't supposed to work this way and if you know that, you're probably also probably bear but it doesn't mean you can't make money!

  • An FDA advisory panel rejects Arena Pharmaceuticals' (ARNA) weight-loss drug lorcaserin on concerns the drug didn't work well and carried potential safety problems. ARNA -39.8% AH. (PR)  [View news story]
    Looks like Arena needs to hire better lobbyists, then the FDA would have no problem accepting it.

  • Enjoy the 'Sigh of Relief' Market Rally [View article]
    Here I am thinking "can't we have just a couple months with out Fed/PPTP intervention"

    and "grand sheme of things"? back to mid 2010, try looking at the "grand sheme of things" over the past 3 years, if not more. Nothing has changed. Let the computers, Fed, SEC, play and the market. There is no credibility whatsoever in this market. It's been punked and has zero credibility.

    I should say, good for you if you know how these guys play and make money doing it!
