Excuse me, considering the amount of time and effort (and respect garnered) you have made on this board, I can offer my opinion also. The plethora of information that you have provided about RAS is at times interspersed with YOUR opinions. I am NOT making things up as you say, but sharing "my two cents" worth. Good day DF....
It is only my opinion that something is wrong. If the mm's are creating a capitulation situation, they've done it (already). Yet, the selling continues...
Just looking at the day chart (minutes), it is obvious that program/high speed trading dictates the price... someone is making money on RAS, but it is not long term shareholders.
and still lose (money)?
The correction has come and gone; volatility rules. Fourth quarter starting in October is going to be gangbusters. The DOW will add 2000 points for Christmas... C will rise $8. Mark it.
Finally a really funny and reasonable post here. Now back to Ford.
Dimwitted and brainwashed fools want America down
retail re can be a goldmine in the right locations, nonetheless a 26% vacancy rate on total sf is telling....
Are posters here really that stupid?
in a nutshell...China is buying Treasuries to help depress the value of its currency (the yuan). A cheaper yuan makes the country's exports less expensive for foreign buyers, thereby keeping the country’s export-based economy chugging along. Consequently, the Chinese economy would suffer as much, if not more than, that of the United States if China were to suddenly stop buying U.S. debt.
It’s also important to keep in mind that since China holds such a large position in U.S. debt, the nation has a vested interest in maintaining the health of the Treasury market. Naturally, this provides ample motivation for China to avoid any action that would cause Treasury prices to plunge.
