  • Puerto Rico makes payment; monolines higher [View news story]
    I believe it was our Gov. Malloy, here in Ct., on the grounds that everyone move in state and vote Democrat for life. It's his standard operating procedure.

  • Markets close higher [View news story]
    Grind? Looks more like someone was determined that a little thing like the yuan being added to the SDR basket wasn't going to cause 2 down days in a row.

    To borrow a drinking phrase, it's 10:30 somewhere

  • Gold hits five-year lows as investors bail [View news story]
    What they forgot to mention was that 1 investor threw $1.9 BBBBillion dollars of naked puts on the stack at 8 am...Any guesses who? Maybe the same cb who hit it with 160 mill yesterday morning? You can smell the desperation....

  • Gold set for sixth straight weekly drop [View news story]
    Metals are being slammed for 2 reasons - the Comex is out of metal w/delivery months at hand and the Fed is trying to get the banks out from under their puts and derivatives before the shortfall is exposed. The arrogant sobs label their work for all but the deliberately blind to see - heavy trade in the off hours, hundreds of millions of naked shorts thrown on the pile at once, and shills singing in every major publication. WSJ posted yesterday's obit of the metals 5 minutes before the markets opened.

  • Futures flat as China tumbles [View news story]
    Looks like their national team forgot to buy the market. Ours won't make the same mistake.

    Strong bull markets are driven by an improving economy and widespread buying. The current market (and metal weakness) are just figments of the FED's imagination and pocketbook. It's gone beyond the economy, at this point, and decisions are being made based solely on geopolitical considerations. WW3 is at hand.

    Looks like JPM needs a full time triggerman to keep the metals down today

    Looks like they had to move the 10:30 ramp up a bit...less time to manipulate this week. Still plenty of time to club metals though, w/options expiring.

  • Draghi: ECB will do what it must to raise inflation [View news story]
    Central banks will print until it's obvious to a blind man that it isn't working. That it causes their friends and owners to get richer only spurs them on. It won't end until the 99% forcibly stop it.

    It's just the banks and hedgies front running the Fed 10:30 algo. JY wants the market at record highs when they shock the world with a 1/4 point move.

    Led by oil??? The problems w/the economy aren't being caused by and won't be solved by oil. The problem is debt...too much of it..national, state, corporate, personal, student, auto...everywhere. If they raise rates it makes all those debts worse, plus they get to look like clowns when they have to reverse course.

    I see the 10:30 ramp algo has been unleashed. Same w/the London fix smash. Not that we'll ever find out, but I believe this month's metal takedown is probably tied to the scrutiny the Fed is under. They may potentially loose their unquestioned power to give backdoor bailouts to the too-big-to-jail banks that also own the Fed. Given that they have trillions in derivatives written against metals - probably down to the $10/$800 dollar range - I think the smash is to let them escape those deals before the physical market finally overwhelms the gold pool v. 2 that has been running since the 70's.

  • Futures move to session highs [View news story]
    Brain, the U.S. has been devaluing the $ at a frantic pace ever since the FED was conceived. Purchasing power is down about 98% and they think we're just getting started. Something bigger is afoot here...W/energy losses about to roll through the system, the month long 8 am beating of metals, China and Japan shedding T-bills,
    EM markets ready to keel over w/a rate hike, etc - I think the banksters are making a desperate run for one more Xmas bonus before things get away from them.
