  • Another Detroit in the making? Moody's downgrades Chicago another notch [View news story]
    The FED's printing has delayed the coming tsunami but Meredith Whitney will yet be proven correct. Just not in time to save her hedge fund.

    Yeah, and when they start paying somebody $20/hr to flip your burger you will realize its a zero sum game....just like the international currency wars.

  • Fall in producer prices gives relief to Treasurys [View news story]
    You must be living in a cave. Lower prices for the common man are the worst possible thing according to our central bankers. They simply have to keep printing at full speed because inflation is not high enough. Providing free money to banks and insolvent gov'ts is just an unfortunate consequence of that.

  • Futures flat ahead of housing starts, FOMC minutes [View news story]
    You eventually come to the hard place where part time work, waitress tips, and student loans don't add up to mortgage money no matter how low you drop the down payment and relax the underwriting standards.

    Looks like some very loose stools at the FED>Of course, everybody would dump their metals as a banking crisis unfolds.

  • Greek financing talks break down [View news story]
    Japan's debt is just as unpayable as Greece's is...same with the U.S., the U.K., France, etc, etc. just nobody (no sovereign) has had the stones to call them on it yet. When they do, the whole fiat world is going back to the dark ages. Greece could be the trigger that starts it...which is why you are suddenly seeing the Eurozone d-heads cry for Greece to take a bridge loan when they wouldn't offer one last week.

  • EU, Greece approach final showdown [View news story]
    Syriza has already achieved what they needed to just by winning the election. Deal or not, the Eurozone should be doomed by what happens with the emboldened populations in Spain and Italy. While a deal is likely - based on the lenders need to get something done, not Greece's - Tsipras may just give Merkel the full Monty depending on what he's been offered by Russia and China.

  • Stay Calm And All Will Be Well [View article]
    Algo's don't whoop and it's frowned on in the Eccles building. Apart from that, there is no rally.

    Looks like the BIS has a man on the inside at the Greece talks.

    I forgot the G20 meetings were another pre-scheduled stock ramp and metals beating.

  • Greece's Tsipras rejects extension [View news story]
    Here you go, WusPokerGuy...or you can Google the topic yourself and find 000's of more reports. This is a different version found in the NY Post of the FED's buying revealed in the AIG trial - Here is a different link that shows the actual discounts that CME gives the central banks for buying futures - You can do the same with the loan issue - here is a report by Bloomberg on the secret loans that WERE NOT reported to Congress and weren't authorized by TARP -

  • Greece's Tsipras rejects extension [View news story]
    There is overwhelming proof that the FED is buying stocks - e-mini futures to be exact. An article in FT estimated their portfolio at 4 trill in stocks....helping to make big bucks for their owners. That, and not any BS about central bank independence, is why they will go to the mat to prevent a Congressional audit. Besides, what the FED admits its doing publicly and what is actually going on are worlds apart. Witness the 40 trill or so they secretly loaned to banks during the crisis.
