Talking heads on T.V. claim financial reports next week will be good - thus market moves higher. I bet the house last week Russia news regarding Ukraine invasion would send stock market down. Obviously that didn't happen Friday - so not world stock markets ignore Ukraine while Putin plans to take over a third of the country. I think we can take Ukraine off the volatility stove and now put it on a back burner, since it has no effect on world stock markets.
Just to much network hacking news in the public eye now as companies big and small scramble for cyber security protection. FIreEye is in demand and next few quarters should show significant earning increases as the this number (#2 ranked security company) starts to fire on all cylinders.
and sells off today. And we've just seen futures come down quite a bit so lets see the Bear show its ugly head at open.
OK I get it - Let Putin take over Poland, Baltic States, Belarus, Czech Republic, Georgia, possibly Serbia and all the little neighbors in Eastern Europe because Putin has nukes. Of course with your idiot logic China can take over Vietnam, Taiwan, Japan, Philippines, because China has Nukes.
Obama starting to make Jimmy Carter look good and that's pretty pathetic. Putin thumbs his pointed nose at Obama and all the President does is call Merkel and say "can we all get along while I try to tap your phone conversations".
I mean lets get real here. There have been wars raging in the Middle East for centuries so this recent flare up is nothing new Secondly I really have very little remorse with one Middle Eastern terrorist group killing another. Let the bad guys kill the bad guys, since no one can tell who the good guys are.
Obama needs to stay out of the Middle East unless he wants to be called George Bush the Second. But where Obama is really screwing up is in Ukraine as Putin swats off bogus sanctions and crossed over into Ukraine with his Russian soldiers for a massive power play. Majority of Ukrainians want democracy, freedom and liberty, but Putin want a massive land grab to justify his Hitler ego. We're talking decent people in Ukraine who actually work for a living, want to join Western Europe and improve their living standards. But Obama won't lift a finger to help them. Obama won't send rifles or low level military equipment to help the Ukrainians. Its sad to see our leader spending so much time on the Middle East and telling Israel to ease off Hamas (which are out and out terrorists), while trying out who to bomb next in Iraq and Syria,
Mr. President let the bad guys kill the bad guys but do direct your attention to Ukraine since the only thing standing in between Western Europe and a complete Russian take over of Eastern Europe. Do your job Mr. President or resign and let someone else take over.
Little Putin going to do "whack a mole" on world markets. Question is will Putin ruin Spy Longs position with his crazy take over the world ambitions???
Not Pumping - Just reporting Seeking Alpha - just like you're doing. Gee some shorts really have lack of brain cells.
Think we break $3 a share tomorrow since the market know volatility could come back to haunt it in September and October.
and as we all know Feye can move fast in both directions. For the rest of the year the direction will be UP.
and to think that Mother Russia could be the final straw for Greece, Portugal, Italy and even Span as Putin reduces natural gas supplies thus forcing all these countries into "DEFAULT". Its the Putin Way.
Seeking Alpha - Raymond James thinks H-P could acquire FireEye. Please realize Seeking Alpha plays it both ways dude.
If I may be sold bold to join this discussion it appears the original poster was pointing out the "FACT" that Russia pretty much lies about everything it does in and outside of Ukraine. Putin is KGB - a born liar df2830 and if you can't get that through you think skull then go back to your milk and cookies. Secondly why are you referring Ukraine to Iraq? There are no U.S. boots in Ukraine and last I checked Nato had not entered Ukraine to offer assistance. Lastly - You do realize df2830 that Russia just killed 300 innocent civilian that had nothing to do with the Ukraine crisis. So in your little world its OK for Putin to kill men, women and children 30,0000 feet in the sky as long as the United States of America looks the other way and says "Its not our problem".
In reality Ukraine is Europe's problem but Europe never had or will have a back bone. All Europe does is talk the talk but never walks the walk. In any case df2830 its best you don't post here anymore since you are out of your element and certainly not much of a historian.
but not sure if Major Red
Putin tells Ukraine (Your Mine) - Europe tanks
More talk of Rate Hike coming - Market concerned
Market run-up a head of itself - Sept. almost here (correction month)?
Isis expanding while Gaza shrinking (could we be friends with Syria - hope not)
Federal Deficit at 18 trillion - Fed can't print anymore
November Elections - train wreck or just the same?
We sell off into close - could be down 100 points or more.
Since if Ukraine Govt lets the convoy enter and unload (what ever) they will look weak. And if the Ukraine Govt halts Russian convoy or takes it out, Putin will think he has the green light to invade Ukraine. Its a no win situation for Ukraine Govt, but they still should stand up to Russia and its game of Killing Ukrainians but then offering crackers and water in return.
so you can make some serious money on the gold sell off. It also helps to go long Dust to off set any losses you might have playing Tvix on the long side.
Gold down JXG (Japan) and Hong Kong exchange. The cross current you mention are now non-existent, Merkel visiting Ukraine this Saturday and little Putin visiting his Ukraine counter part next week. Israel not invading Gaza and Hamas almost out of military leaders. More and more members of the Fed board now leaning toward tightening sooner versus later and Yellen won't be able to hide under her desk much longer. King dollar strengthens each day as the Euro gets weaker. Look for Gold to sell off another $10 tomorrow with Yellen sitting on her hands. But should she suddenly get a back bone and tell investors higher rates might just become - we then Gold drop $80 and GLD tanks big time.
You can see it in their eyes and in there weak postures. Uncle Ben was flying blind and just loved printing play money for years and years. Hell I can keep a hot air balloon is the sky for ever if I keep burning green back day in day out. Yellen looks like she was born a dove and one has to wonder if she has a back bone much less a spine. Over the last year the U.S. economy has improved dramatically yet Janet can't handle that or the fact that she might have to be the one that whispers "rates going higher in 2015" Tomorrow she will act like the U.S. economy is still on life support, no real wage strength and gee threat from abroad (slowing Europe economy - slowing China economy). Yellen will say "Gee we've printing play money for so long, what's another year doing the same thing. Its only money and we need to keep rates low so we can get another Housing Bubble and High Tech Bubble".
Yep helicopter Ben and Dovish Little Yellen - two Fed Chiefs who never had the guts to speak plain English and do the proper things - Like raise rates by the end of 2014. YEP - the Fed is always behind the curve, a day late but never a dollar short.
