Assuming your thesis is correct, why did Fidelity (FMR LLC) increase its stake by 46% during the selloff in the area of $36 PPS? I am sure they did not accumulate such a large percentage for a paltry 3 return per share.
frustrating all those short. Think its a coincidence that the 10yr. bond began moving down big time in the past few days and Tepper made his comments! Lawful non free market manipulation at its best IMHO. Not that any of this has been a real market anyway. But those bond prices are unsustainable short term. TLT short.
to sell the top . . . who was really buying into 3% growth in the second half? GS pulled that number out of a hat to stoke it. Convinced everyone that sell in May was the contrarian trade and intended to run the hell out of the indexes until late June to sell the top to everyone willing to buy the #$%$. Very convincing when the took so many high flyers out to the woodshed to the tune of 40% down - man the boyz are good at their work. Perhaps why they are hated more than lawyers.
for all the angst nothing happened this weekend. Nada. Just more rhetoric and showmanship.
harken back to 12/1/2013 when the streets were on fire in Ukraine and rioting taking place. Market did not seem to care.
so what about now? Does the market care about Ukraine or is this just all about the taper?
I expected today to really melt down into the close as the carry trade crashed through support at 101.8 this afternoon. But that didn't happen.
So my thought is they bottomed the trade out to begin the rinse and repeat cycle. Almost convinced that risk off was gonna be for good. Contrarian thought now is they bottomed it to ramp the next cycle and perhaps the futures will return to their usual pattern overnight.
brilliant. Well done Busey was perfect for the cheeky commercial. Memorable. BTW - customer reviews are steadily rising on Fire TV on the website. Assuming 5% of purchasers write a review, translates into at least 200k units sold since announcement.
if this didn't crack with all the pressure - which has been constant day in and day out - in the QQQs - then one may reasonably infer that the big boys want all the high beta for themselves into May . . . there will be a return to momentum - not if but when - nearing capitulation IMO . . .
can't disagree but you need comic relief. Perhaps watching some of George Carlin's old stuff on this issue would help ease the pain.
comical . . . funny how no talk about the problems that are growing in China - traders were banking on more stimulus (meaningful that is) even in the face of China saying it was not happening.
Brings me to another point, didn't CAT guide down for this quarter and is there really CAPEX spend occurring?
What about the miners and iron ore . . . thought China killed that market too?
This is a gamble going into earnings at these levels - akin to TSLA trading near 280 PPS heading into franchise fights and building their battery factory - high risk gamble that cannot misstep at all.
keep juicing the futures on dips. How can anyone think this isn't gonna end badly if no real participants are really buying the underlying indexes especially at the tops.
wow CNBC trying to mitigate effect of what they really believe to be true as well. Why worry about a few pennies that are enriching others, stay focused on the dollars you peasants! Oh the indignation . . . hahahha
kid is being perceived as aimless perhaps - need to better communicate integration and how all this stuff is accretive. In the end I think he is smart; however, he marches at his own pace (i.e., too his time monetizing video ads) and I don't think the street likes it very much. The are kinda immediate gratification types.
before today I thought the selling pressure would abate next week. Now not so sure based on how things played out over the last few days in broader market too. Now thinking they may just want to bring this closer to its 200 DMA. Wow.
