  • EMC cutting jobs ahead of Dell deal  [View news story]
    At least they waited until after XMas. Must be GE guys leading HR. One time we had a team of managers walking people out while another team passed out crystal bowls to celebrate how good we did.

    It probably left for Louisiana. This is a political posturing move at the present.

    It's not how far in the red it finished that matters...it's that it was still red even w/the Fed algo's cranked in mid Dec. and the bankers on their usual bonus pilgrimage. It's going to take a triple seasonal adjustment to overcome the tide of bad news coming ashore.

  • Will the 'January effect' come into play in 2016?  [View news story]
    It would appear it's time for the financial artists to finally admit the whole world is in the crapper and to take their medicine while things get back to normal. Such thinking treats their thievery as a passing bout of bad behavior rather then a DNA trait. Look for them to just take their tricks up a notch with a manufactured war in the oil territories, another fake Bullard bounce, and more prosecutions of standalone spoofers to convince the gullible that all is well.

    Exactly. Expect another ramp tomorrow even though oil is back down hard on a big build. Like Santelli said - the market will not be allowed to close red no matter what.

  • Coal, gold, and silver miners slump amid commodity rout  [View news story]
    This week is all paint the tape, delivery month, option expiry smack down antics. They even let the price rise a little last week just to emphasize the take down underway.

    Anybody who is surprised by this weeks complete metal smackdown at year end tape painting, delivery month, option expiry time will probably be caught completely off guard when Obama sets up a charity the day he's out of office.

    Of course, just admitting that they are beyond bankrupt isn't an option. That might lead to people asking uncomfortable questions about every other country.

    All the humans are away. Note how the ramps start at the same times everyday, just no counteractive selling this week. I bet they screw up and fire off on Fri too.
