Good post hemp_farmer. Putin wants the whole pie, not just a small slice. Russia claims they are in Crimea to settle things down. HA. Next week Russia will be making plans to invade Eastern Ukraine but claim they are only acting as a neutral party to stabilize things. HA. Bottom line world markets will trade down next Monday - next week knowing Russian sanctions are coming. If Putin counters with U.S. and Europe sanctions - look out. Banks will take a "huge" hit and stocks like tvix and uvxy will double in short order. Spy sure looks top heavy to me here.
Only nine cents away? But the bigger worry is a follow through sell off tomorrow as Asia and Europe markets free fall tonight and tomorrow and then U.S. open falls through the floor on news that Russia is marching toward Kiev for communist takeover.
Down 203 points right now with just an hour left of trading. Spy extremely risky at these levels, so why hold in your portfolio? Upside is pennies but down side is HUGE if long anticipated market correction finally hits due to Ukraine crisis.
Another big volume day for SPY as longs leave and shorts come in. Not sure why anyone would want to be long SPDR, when its going to get a real nasty haircut over and over again in March and April. See you all at $181 tomorrow, if not lower.
If figure when we get down to 40 states out of 50 banning sale of Tesla electric cars the stock will be around $1000 a share and about to split. Fewer customers to buy Tesla cars means the stock will run higher to who knows what levels.
and then Russia counters and world markets go into a free fall. Could very well happen over next 24 hours.
and then Russia counters and world markets go in a free fall. All could happen over next 24 hours.
I think New Jersey move against Tesla is just the tip of the iceberg. New York will follow New Jersey lead and Pennsylvanian and Delaware will also follow, The snow ball is now rolling down hill and it will get bigger (more states ban Tesla sales) as we move through the year. In fact if you Google "legislation against Tesla electric car sales" you will find many more states are in preliminary proceeding to also ban Tesla car sales in their respective states. Look for Tesla to move operations overseas so it can some how sell to foreign market and give up sales in U.S.
Rumor has it that California might follow New Jersey lead and ban Tesla auto sales in California. Now wouldn't that be a punch to the gut.
Tyson Corner store will be shut down next month. Virgina has banned all sales of Tesla cars and West Virginia will follow. Wonder in a couple months if the only place you can buy Tesla will be in Mexico. Can't buy Tesla in Canada due to strong auto dealerships.
Agree but some of those 55 million customers you pointed out are under 21 years old and can't afford expensive electric cars. But the number of states now banning Tesla auto sales is increasing and at some point the "dealership" side will win out. Why hold a stock at $230 that has the potential to drop below $100 a share, or even $50 a share with news that some other state will ban Tesla cars. When you have a shrinking customer market (states banning tesla auto sales) you have a stock that could fall through the floor and keep falling.
Russia isn't threatening anyone. HA, HA, HA
Think again bone head kengallowaypalmer
Russia threatens all Ukrainians, gays, neighboring Georgia, Russian punk bands, neighboring Belarus, non-commies, Poland, Baltic States, rich oil players, anyone one who is against Putin, etc. Russia leadership is corrupt, evil, out for themselves, and into big "power trips". Russia at present is doing the "Hitler Shuffle" by saying "we have to invade Ukraine to protect our Russian brothers" HA.
Now I do feel sorry for the common Russian citizen since he or she has to put up with 5' 4" tall Putin for probably the next 10 plus years. The little midget is loco, untrustworthy and says one thing but does another. Never ever trust anything Putin says, since its all a "big fat lie".
Keep buying Russian stocks kengallowaypalmer and you'll be broke by the end of March.
so you know both of these puppies could jump 15% plus tomorrow if job's numbers come in weak. Throw in bad Russia - Ukraine and maybe a 20% jump. It will be interesting,
Very Likely. Spy topped out with dismal job's numbers tomorrow. And we all know Putin's blood pressure is rising as he get compared to "a shorter version of Hitler"
God awful job report tomorrow - Oh and do we blame weather four months in a row???
Putin wants more and more and more. Not stopping at Crimea. No way - Look out Poland.
Federal Deficit headed for 18 trillion - and the gang sings on
Yellen forced to taper or her white hair falls out. Can't reverse taper or house of card crumbles.
You all now have been forewarned. Sell you "long" position" in Spy or start losing fingers and toes tomorrow morning.
Whoa, could we have Russia - Ukraine all out war, soon to be followed by Israel and Iran slug-fest? Oh, and do we really think Obama and Kerry want to sign some peace deal with Iran Nuke manufacturing when Iran is sending weapons of mass destruction all over the world?
That's what many Spy "long" investors are wondering since Spy in premarket could open under $170. When you read news like this today "Ukraine's new leaders accused neighbor Russia of declaring war", you know you don't want to be long this ETF when the market opens at premarket trading or at 9:30 am.
so how high does Tvix go tomorrow. Over $10 a share or over $15? I'll take either one if I can buy in under $9 a share.
and they also can't handle reality. Sellers will be out if force Monday, next week and all of March. Why - three reasons.
1. Russia action's into Ukraine just told all the bad guys (North Korea, Iran, Syria, China, etc.) to go offensive and take over your neighbors. Putin just told Obama, no one is going to stop me so cancel G-8 summit in Russia. I'll take a massive country with boundless resources over any stupid G-8 meeting.
2. Massive snow/ice storm hitting East Coast this coming week. This storm will further crush GDP, hiring, retail, etc. We're talking a major slowdown in U.S. economy as storm after storm pounds the mid-west, East coast and sections of the South.
3. Yellen will taper on in the face of a slowing U.S. economy. She has to or the Fed looks like complete fools. No more "printing press" money for the market to get drugged on, as the U.S. faces a major cold war with Russia and sub freezing temperatures across the fruited plain,
Mr Putin cannot allow himself to believe that the Kremlin's favoured strongmen in former Soviet republics are actually unpopular. He will never concede that millions of Ukrainians genuinely want to break free of Russia's orbit and join the EU. So Mr Putin will regard the February Revolution as another plot to extend Western influence. Putin believe "Mother Russia" should control every country withing 500 miles of its boundaries and at this time he does not appear to be afraid of Obama, the U.S. or Europe. Look for more extreme unsuitability all over the world as the long sought after market correction starts Next Week.
