    Why iz it that no one trusts the stok market?

    So much negativity, yet stox are so high. Sybil just cant understand beccause its never been seen in the history of modern markets where stox are hated at the same time they sit at all time highz. Shouldn't everyone want to be buying stox right now? Sybs sooooooo confused.

    • What is so hated is the incessant "pain trade" where weak longs/shorts are being taken out (which roughly corresponds to retail, or those without the benefit of asymmetric information and leverage) and where the "financial analysts" and financial media (CNBC) simply try to rationalize the predatory trading rather than actually calling the BS for what it is. What is hated is the structure and behavior of the markets.

      WS has continued to push the market up assuming that retail is stupid and will buy in if they keep pushing. Likewise, TBTF banks assumed they could crush gold. Retail isn't as dumb as people think. They can sit in cash and gold indefinitely... Add to gold when it drops. Covers deflation and inflation (by which we really mean currency risk) without counterparty risk. They'll come back when these scam markets implode upon themselves...
