  • Moody’s downgrades Russia to brink of junk [View news story]
    I guess they need to sue Moody's, pronto. Actually, a visit to the CEO from a man in a face mask would probably suffice.

  • Gain Capital joins FXCM-related slide [View news story]
    It's not a normal situation. Stop-loss will trigger an attempt to sell but absolutely everybody was on one side of the trade. There was no pool of buyers waiting at 119.5. If Citi couldn't get their money out, nobody else was either.

  • At the close (Major Indices up more that 1%) [View news story]
    Notice what? It was options expiry. They had to blast stocks higher to avoid bigger payouts on the decline.

    I think she was telling him that Argentina and Chile are where
    the Germans usually hide when things fall apart.

  • Biggest day for oil in more than two years [View news story]
    You oil guys just got the same option expiry treatment the metals bulls get every single month. No news, just a 2 hour ramp or slide to the price that makes the most money for JPM. Nothing suspicious at all according to to the CFTC. Just because they sold enough unbacked paper to get the price there, doesn't mean they intended to manipulate it. Yeah, right. Anyway, welcome to the 'we got hosed' club.

  • Treasury yields tumble after soft retail sales number [View news story]
    Silly Ingot, The rout is because QE doesn't provide any growth except in the stock market. They have been trying to hold off the plunge in the U.S. long enough to let Europe take up the money printing so the banks and the rich can continue flying high while everybody else struggles.

    Might want to make that someday. If getting OMT declared 1/2 legal didn't cause a buy-a-thon, not much will.

    You only have 1/2 the game figured out. He's trying to be the Washington Fed and do his own stimulus since Janet & Co can't sell any more printing right now. First we did free insurance, now we'll do free college (to help those that got hosed by the rest of his policies), then we'll try to write off all the student loans for everybody that's already paid (borrowed) for their college. We'll also want to make sure our new illegal aliens can jump right up the ladder w/some free schooling

    When the people get tired of the banker/politician alliance, JD will be happy to be in prison. They call it protective custody. My mansion's gonna need a bigger gate!
