    • Get real.
      Uncle Ben only said what everybody already knew.
      The rest is panic and handwringing.
      I am just greatful that the obedient masses panicked this early in the options cycle.
      Everybody wants somebody to blame for their temporary misery.
      Good time to sell puts.

    • After years of priding himself on openness, BB just pulled the rug out under the markets. Now people have no idea when QE will end, how fast it will end, what bond areas will be reduced first, or what the deciding factors will be. Worse yet, the Fed has no idea what they're going to do either. They're just making it up as they go along, and asking the markets to trust them that they will get it right. I can't wait until this Fed chairman shows up for his last day of work.

      That's right, lock in your losses. Brilliant.

      Sentiment: Strong Buy

    • Stupid Ben's trap might cause the long awaited global 'correction' to occur. Europe so far is down 2% German DAX, STOXX, and 1.5% FTSE. Looks like a global sell-off. If this continues big tommorrow, I suggest ppl to consider liquidating their stocks or start setting short hedges. This is going to be one ugly global correction if it comes to be. I am soooo #$%$ at that baldy. Why can't he just keep his trap shut? He pumped it up, now he wants to dump it down??? #$%$?
