  • Stocks Rally On Bernanke's Admission Of Fed Ineffectiveness [View article]
    Not until the Velocity of said money starts to churn will the flames of inflation burn...
    Bernanke is so scared sh**less of "DEFLATION" he is willing to risk run away inflation,(in the future), to combat the depressionary pressures he and Greenspan unleashed after the 2000 implosion!

    We are in a deflationary morass of Bernanke's making!

    Add in the onslaught of this radical progressive administration and you have all the making's of a real nightmare!

    May the good lord watch over this fragile little experiment in freedom / man's self rule we call America.

  • Though Laszlo Birinyi and other market forecasters are drawing parallels between 2012 and 1995's bull run, Barclays' Barry Knapp isn't buying it. Rising energy prices, slowing central bank activity and earnings growth, geopolitical risks, and "overzealous financial regulatory policy" all lead him to think history isn't repeating. Knapp also points out small caps and cyclicals are underperforming, typically a bearish sign.  [View news story]
    Have not in recent memory been able to say I agree with Barry Knapp, but he is spot on here.

    Birinyi has been blowin the bubble for the better part of a year, his helium is wearing thin.

    Risk to the downside...

  • Pretty chart of the day: The stock market just finished going through all of January and February without a down day of 1% or more for the first time since 1995, a year the S&P powered to a 34% gain.  [View news story]
    Why not do me the courtesy of at least a response?

  • James Altucher goes all-in with his forecast for Dow 20K - seemingly holding nothing more than a low pocket pair. He tells Henry Blodget that people shouldn't be so angry (video) with his long-standing bullish call with all the metrics positive and planned buybacks by U.S. firms sitting as a huge driver for prices. The tale of the tape: At today's Dow, his uber-bullish call is for a 54% runup in about a year. [View news story]
    I'll take the other side,
    S&P OF 589.85 IN A YEAR, OR LESS!

    The dollar would have to loose (By more QE,multiple QE) more the 3/4 of what little purchasing power is left to the American working man / woman!

    If Bernanke debased the dollar to Altucher's bullish call, there would be massive blood in the streets and my call is more likely.

  • Can the largest stock in the U.S. double yet again? SmartMoney's Jack Hough offers up (video) the theory that Apple's (AAPL +0.4%) upside potential for adding smartphone and computer market share - along with its relatively tame price-to-earnings valuation - keeps its bid for a four-digit trading price a reality. [View news story]
    Well if that isn't a sign for the top!

    Remember the QCOM call in 2000?

    Sounds eerily familiar, back them QCOM was supposed to rocket to $1,000, what would that equal in today's fed induced weak dollar? $1,500? $2,000, pick a number!

    Apple is just as likely to hit its low as $1,000!

  • The S&P 500 is already up 8.6% YTD, but volume is anemic. The combined 18.9B of S&P 500 component shares traded is a 20% drop from the same period last year and less than half the 48.5B shares traded during the same period in 2008. Today's action was no different: 3.32B shares in NYSE composite volume, the third lowest volume day of the year.  [View news story]
    Want to see explosive volume?Just wait till we get a decent sell off!
    Apple is going to crush the "QQQ's", when people at some point say to themselves, I think its a prudent thing to take some chips off the table.

    This fed / Bernanke fueled mirage will end the same as all other intrusions into the "ONCE FREE" markets do, in tears!

    I am so happy the retail investor for the most part has stayed on the sidelines, in SAFETY!

    This bubble T.V. grown nightmare will collapse into itself with the realization that gasoline prices DO MATTER and Obama was multiple times worse than the "Lame Street Media" was reporting,or more precisely, not reporting.

    Prepare for RISK to come off in a really big way!

    How perfect!
    A communist leaning rag, with no one in the States paying for it goes to the land of communism and censorship!

    Wonder how long the chairman will tolerate all the worthless dribble in the Times?

    Not long!

    Can we send Krugman and Freidman?

  • "This agreement is binding only on those who signed it," says the leader of Greece's Syriza party - less than 10% of seats in Parliament, but possibly part of the next leadership coalition after April elections. "The accord carries the signature of a government with no popular legitimacy ... Very soon the sovereign people will regain their sovereignty."  [View news story]
    Very true!
    The people didn't have any say in the Papademos coup!
    This plutocrat was "INSTALLED" to do his masters bidding, surly not the peoples will!
    This is how "DEMOCRACY" works,
    beware the mob rules mentality!

    Disgusting and immoral!
    Its a shame the people of Europe lost their faith so many years ago.
    When you put your Faith in man, you are destined to be let down!
    Just as all the American's were so easily duped in 2008!

  • Greece's official announcement on the terms of its debt restructuring warns those who do not wish to participate in the debt swap that parliament will soon pass a law to insert a collective action clause (CAC) into eligible Greek paper, essentially forcing participation upon the entire (private) creditor class.  [View news story]
    Oh this is just so fracking wonderful!
    Makes me just want to run out and praise the powers that be for saving the world!
    NOT!

    This is the destruction of the once free democracy and way of life first in Greece and then Europe and finally here!

    Hey S.A. why do we have a MONSTER story on the fed writing more than ever regulation behind closed doors listed at 4:15 A.M.?

    I think this should be put front and center every hour, no we are celebrating the stupid number of 13,000 in the Dow!

    WAKE UP PEOPLE!
    There isn't a whole lot of time left!
    God help us!

  • Meredith Whitney's infamous prediction of muni market implosion never came to pass, but the future of the muni-bond market remains opaque: Jefferson County's Chapter 9 filing is testing who, if anyone, can force a community to make good on its debt; while West Penn continues to hemorrhage cash.  [View news story]
    Never is a long time.
    I'll put my money on her as opposed to the Wall Street schiesters!
    If you think we are all back to normal with this kind of monetary policy and fiscal ineptitude coming out of the progressives in D.C., well that's your opinion!
    You are entitled to your opinion and also to be WRONG!

    God help all freedom loving Americans, the powers that be are aligned against the "Forgotten Man."

    2012 is the most important election of our lifetimes, it either reaffirms America's greatness, or ushers in the "Worship Of Baal."

  • The PBOC cuts bank reserve ratio requirements by 50 basis points to 20.5%, effective February 24, reports the WSJ. It's the second easing of policy in less than 90 days.  [View news story]
    Agree with C.W. and if I might add, just what are they seeing to get this kind of response?
    I thought the global economy was all peaches and cream?
    NOT!

    We are in the early stages of a massive world wide blow off top!
    I remember perfectly in 2007 when the Dow made its all time high, it was the same bubble TV fueled nonsense!

    Except then rates were somewhere around 4 / 5 percent and we had a fed with not only respect but with a quiver full of arrows!
    We now have a Bernanke moron with nothing but his, ahem, mind in his hand!

    I am no fan of Dagen McDowell, can't stand that accent, but on that fateful day in October of 2007, she was the only bubble TV voice urging caution and said, not so fast, its not all party time from here on in.
    She was spot on!
    Beware the herd, meltdown imminent!

  • Barron's Latest 'Dow 15,000' Issue: Cover Indicator At Work? [View article]
    Barrons is a sad shell of its former self. It is almost not even worth the time anymore, but you can read it in less than a half an hour today.
    It used to be an all day read, this latest issue was a joke, 15,000? In what parallel universe?
    Do we now have a silver bullet to reign in all the excessive debt drowning this once mighty country?
    Has Bernanke gotten religion and sworn off anymore QE and dollar destroying policies?
    Has Obama rejected all his socialist teachings and grown a set of free market, calls?
    We will retest the 2009 lows before we even get close to 15,000 on the dow!

  • Markets might by signalling that Spring is coming, says Martin Taylor in the FT, but the similarities to the 1930s - "a time of persistent false dawns" - are "multiplying ominously." The "shockwaves of the crash" are touching more and more people, and the debate is once again between austerity and the need to seek full employment.  [View news story]
    Yes, couldn't agree more.
    But one thing is overlooked at every turn!
    The fate of the people.
    Do they even figure into the equation?
    The technocrats in charge seem insulated, they are protected in their ivory towers as they belch demands for the average person to strain under!

    Beware people of the United States, this is democracy at work. The people don't get a VOTE in their fate, the powers that be know best.
    Hmmmm, man that has any eerily familiar sound to it, don't you think?
    This "Fabian Socialist Society" is unraveling before the world.
    Sadly we have our own aristocracy, Ruth Bader Ginsburg advising Egypt to NOT use our constitution as a blue print but to use South Africa's!
    It has "Social Justice" and it is more geared to "Fairness",
    EXCUSE ME?

    This is abhorrent and all the people of the failed E.U. Experiment are our fate should we get the final solution of another term of "Hope / Despair" and "Change / Death of God,worship of Baal",
    the fate of man's freedom rests in the balance!

  • Goldman Sachs looks at population revisions from the 2010 census and concludes that there is "no labor force participation rebound in sight." Some of the recent decline in the participation rate was expected due to aging of the population, but some rebound was expected this year with an improving economy, but Goldman now expects the rate to stay flat through 2013.  [View news story]
    All the more reason to fade this silly little thing called, the rally.
    Its more like paper squaring between the bots just trying to lure in a few more fools to unload to!
    When the vix breaks, I would bet it will be a massive move back into the high 20's. From there it will plow up into the 50's and take out the old high,(from last summer), and the U.S. Dollar will come along for the ride.
    Your not only at the top end of the "Trading Range", but you are now expanding it.
    Caution at the least is warranted!

  • Finally doing away with the pretense that the Greek bailout is for Greece, the EU is insisting that most of any new rescue funds be directed into an escrow account earmarked for paying off bondholders. The move would give the EU near-complete control over Greece's finances without actually installing a "commissar" in Athens.  [View news story]
    Sounds logical, but you know logic will not prevail in this situation.
    Greece bringing back the Drachma is the only possible way out.
    The Euro is a failed concept and more importantly extremely poorly thought out to begin with!
    For the sake of the global economy, let the Euro zone fall apart and start over if they must!
    To drag this on any longer is only adding to the misery of the common man / woman!
