  • Facebook: Can Instagram Direct Crush Snapchat In Mobile Messaging Wars? [View article]
    I love the bullishness evidenced by all these comments (random sampling). This company is worth about $4, IF it manages to stay in business. Wall Street is setting up for another major cash register ring at the expense of retail (know-nothing) investors. The question is not if, but when. Looks like the time to buy puts is very near.

  • The Leveraged Buyout Of America [View article]

    it would help if you got your facts straight before you made comments. Michael is correct and while "taxation" is a bad thing, it has nothing to do with the fact that the Federal Reserve is NOT, ABSOLUTELY NOT a Government Bank... it is a PRIVATE BANK!!!!!!

    the Federal Reserve does not answer to the government, it is the other way around.

  • Treasurys gain after big durable goods miss [View news story]
    As we have seen the boom in stocks has been progressively smaller with each subsequent round of QE. The market has already acknowledged QE is a futile tool without money velocity.

  • Initial Jobless claims at 336K [View news story]
    Jobs aren't being created nearly fast enough. The government is clueless and like all banana republics do, it has to resort to finagling the employment and GDP numbers to make things SEEM like they are better. Okay "finagling" is not quite accurate there--more precisely, they are COMPLETELY MANUFACTURING the economic data.

    Print money, hand most of it over to Jamie Dimon and Lloyd Blankfein interest free, watch them gamble with it and create asset bubbles, and what little remains the government can spend creating unproductive, wasteful part-time jobs. Yes, this is a recipe for prosperity, isn't it?

  • The Economy Is Improving - Isn't It? [View article]
    Money WILL go somewhere... from your pocket and all the late comers to the market INTO the pockets of the POMO dealers who also happen to be the ALGO operators as the author correctly points out.

    The bond market will shock everyone and begin a comeback VERY soon, while the stock market will tank and give back the ENTIRETY of the Nov. rally in just a couple months.

    Those who believe the stock market will just go up because it's the only game in town are using the same logic as in 2007, 2000, and at EVERY market top in history going back to 1929 and well before that. You are using the IDENTICAL ARGUMENT, and guess what? you will get the IDENTICAL RESULT.

  • A Bubble Continues To Form In The Stock Market [View article]
    Sorry, but we are WELL BEYOND bubble territory. It is not a question of whether we are in a bubble, but how far they are willing to expand it.... you were actually more accurate, James, a few years back when you called for a major correction that never materialized.

    Blankfein and his criminal investment buddies have been bidding up stocks leveraging with POMO money that is otherwise sitting there in bank reserves collecting dust their (figuratively speaking)... the bubble will start looking suspicious here in the next few weeks, and my bet is that by September it will burst. It is not just random gut feeling--in fact, gut feeling is that this market will never go down--but too many technical indicators are all pointing to a massive correction happening imminently.

  • Weighing The Week Ahead: What Do Higher Interest Rates Mean For Stocks? [View article]
    For some reason, today I had a stroke of genius... which really, wasn't genius at all, but something even the most average person should've seen as common sense. I checked back on Mr. Miller's past musings and predictions namely, going back to the summer of 2007.

    Mr. Miller comes off as a guy who really knows and understands economics. He even looks like a couple of the genius math professors I had in graduate school. Unfortunately, in the summer of 2007, Mr. Miller was uber-bullish on the state of the stock market and the US economy. That to me confirmed what I've believed the past three years of reading his columns: he is merely another permabull benefiting from the glorious work of Ben Bernanke and world central bankers.

    What should be plain for all the rest of us non-experts to see, however, is that there is a giant debt bubble that is growing so large, it will ultimately lead to the demise of not only the USA, but possibly the world, after the USA defaults on all its debt to China. That is one war nobody on this planet ever wants to see, but when you think about the root cause of the previous World Wars (i.e., MONEY), it becomes an inescapable conclusion.

  • S&P 500 (SPY) and Nasdaq 100 (QQQ) futures are off the highs, but remain slightly in the green, +0.2%. Severely chastised by the markets, the Fed has hurriedly backed away from all of that tapering talk. The Nikkei gained another 3.5% overnight and has quietly put together an 11% rally in June's last 2 weeks. Posting solid gains in early action, Europe has turned lower around lunchtime. The 10-year Treasury yield falls another basis point to 2.45%. [View news story]
    4th straight up or a wipeout of the previous three days? me bets the latter.... stay tuned...

  • Weighing The Week Ahead: How Will Markets Digest The New Fed Message? [View article]
    I always enjoy Jeff's analyses, but in my heart of hearts I think Jeff, like many others, has just been a benefactor of the policies of Dr. Bernanke and his CB buddies across the globe.

    The "proof" is that the guy next door who couldn't tell the difference between a treasury bond and a bail bond has been making just as much money as any bull out there for the past several years. This market has rewarded smart guys and idiots equally..... that trend simply can't continue forever.

    Not as smart as Jeff or as dumb as my neighbor, but I'll call the next big leg of this market correction to begin the morning of June 28th.

  • Priced in. Stocks and bonds see no bounce from the uber-dovishness of Minneapolis Fed chief Kocherlakota. In an unusual move, the former hawk, but now a dove with near-religious zeal, issues a statement calling on the FOMC to say it will continue with QE until the unemployment rate falls to at least 7% as long as inflation remains below 2.5%. Additionally, ZIRP should remain in place until unemployment falls below 5.5% (again assuming inflation remains contained). [View news story]
    what's economic policy got to do with monetary policy? Fed doesn't deal in the former, only the latter.

  • Weighing The Week Ahead: A New Direction For The Fed? [View article]
    I think you missed the point! The market sold off today, 6/19, and will likely sell a little more tomorrow, but if you listened to Bernanke and not the market you will realize the selling is unwarranted.

    The market is just doing what it does everyday: weed out "the herd".... all the while, Dr. B is telling you to Buy, Buy, Buy, because he is not going to apply any brakes!

  • Market recap: The more Bernanke talked, the more stocks fell and Treasury yields rose. While the chairman took pains to indicate the Fed isn't changing policy, the markets clearly see less stimulus ahead, sending the Dow down 200 and pushing 10-year Treasury yields to 15-month highs. High-yielding dividend stocks led decliners, with telecoms and utilities posting respective drops of 2.7% and 2.3%. [View news story]
    It was funny watching the options ticker while BB was talking... 50 to 100% fluctuations on puts and calls literally after every few words he uttered.

    In the end, the MMs and market manipulators accomplished their goal of shaking out options traders. The overall move down made zero sense, but expecting it, I stayed in cash all day... I mean on May 22nd all the talk was about tapering "as early as June" and most likely "by September"... now, tapering talk has been postponed to "later in the year", with a re-commitment to stay accomodative and even increase QE if needed... the biggest positive was a guarantee of ZIRP into 2015.

    All of this should've been bullish, but I suspect the market is just trying to kill off the last few bears and use short-covering to spur the next leg up very soon.

  • Market Movers Week Of June 9, 2013: Weak Growth Vs. The Hilsenrath Omen? [View article]
    That is NOT the way the market really trades... that is merely the conventional "wisdom" that has been taught to you by centuries worth of market manipulators.... those of us who trade based on both fundamentals and technicals on a second-by-second basis see clearly the real forces that are at work.

  • Markets get another boost as a soothing Jon Hilsenrath piece hits reminding the Fed wants us to know a taper of asset purchases doesn't mean an end to asset purchases, and a hike in short-term interest rates isn't anywhere close to being on the radar at this point. S&P 500 (SPY +1.6%), Nasdaq 100 (QQQ +1.4%). [View news story]
    It's funny how "the market" had already decided this was going to be a bullish day, almost a bullish engulfing candlestick, but that it "needed" a late day excuse to justify the move.

    People who still don't understand that market moves are pre-planned and coordinated by a small cartel behind closed doors and instead attribute moves to things like "bulls" vs "bears" or "supply" of stock vs "demand" are a constant source of amusement.
