Massive hit. Now its obvious with Europe, China and Japan all in major decline - the U.S. will follow.
Down she goes.
Kerry should be proud - A Twitter account associated with Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said that "arrogants" had failed to bring the Islamic republic "to its knees" during nuclear negotiations. Can't wait for more bogus negotiations and extended rubbish.
Israel will move sooner they anyone realizes. Why not strike now while ISIS is raising havoc across the middle east. Use ISIS as a cover and do your business with Iran. The Saudis are actually closer to Israel on this matter then anyone else since Saudi Arabia can't stand Iran and see's the country as their mortal enemy. Maybe in the near future we see a Israel - Saudi Arabia simultaneously attack on Iran. Now wouldn't that "shock the monkey".
df2830 - you sound like one of Putin's little female gymnast who visits him late at night for a frolic. As I remember it - there used to be a East Germany that was controlled by the Russians. In fact Hitler (little Putin) was stationed in East Germany when the old Soviet Union controlled it. Germans don't like Putin - never had. In fact the Germans killed hundred of thousands Russian soldiers in WW II. In any case get ready for Merkel to tell Putin - "He's now in Major Isolation all by himself".
Kind of like yesterday's meat loaf. Wonder how the Republican controlled Senate act on Obama's DOD replacement? Maybe the hold up the decision until they do away with Obama immigration move.
always good to show strong leadership in a time of world crisis.
Germany either spends billions of Euros to strengthening Nato, or say good bye to East Germany again. Its Merkel's call but you know she's leaning towoards taking Putin head on, versus kissing his KGB behind. All out war in Ukraine next week and first week in December more Russian sanctions coming. Ouch
You Got It. Question is though does Bubble pop this month or next. Hard to tell since its so over blown, stretched so thin and rate cuts just make things worse. Soon China looks like Japan except for a crashl into a rate cut bottomless pit.
Seems gold wants to follow oil higher. Hard to play yellow metal with strong dollar pulling one way and gold buying season in Asia, India along with crisis in Ukraine. And then you have everyone putting pressure on Draghi to do a Q.E. in Europe. Not sure what direction gold is going for the rest of the year.
simply because China's economy is in trouble, Chinese government can't cook the books/numbers anymore and China housing bubble will pop before Christmas. When you see another Titanic going down (China economy) adding a few more life jackets in first class (rate cuts) does very little in the "big picture".
Oh there will be quite a few but new will break after hours and old man winter might subdue prolong rioting. The bigger question is how long will markets ignore the crumbling economies in Japan, Europe and China in the face of bogus interest rate cuts. Seems the deeper Europe goes into recession and the closer we get to a China bubble pop, U.S. stock market runs higher. Weird stuff when you consider back two, three years when little Greece was going to bring down all world markets due to default.
Obviously this is not a "Kumbayah Moment"
Vladimir Putin is underlining his presence at a major summit of world leaders in Australia by stationing warships in waters off the country’s northeastern coast, prompting the Australian prime minister to angrily accuse Russia of trying to reclaim the “lost glories” of the Soviet Union
Run Silent - Run Deep. Question now is does Putin look at Australia as if were Ukraine? Seems our little Hitler not only wants all of Eastern Europe, he also Australia under his domain.
sure looks like Putin is ready to invade Ukraine and put the "Bull" in the grave for 2015.
Pretty soon we will have more then 10,000 boots on the ground and then what happens of those boots can't get out of Iraq if Isis goes on a major offensive? Do we sent in the Marines or tell 10,000 U.S. advisers start hitch-hiking to Kuwait?
and so it begins with Putin sending over 30 tanks into Ukraine while Ukrainian army getting military arms from U.S. Sure looks like this weekend things will escalate out of control in Ukraine.
"For the first time in a very long time, we deployed a heavy brigade of tanks and Bradleys and other capabilities here to Europe. Some of them are now [moving] forward into Eastern European countries, Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia, Poland," Gen. Raymond Odierno, chief of staff of the U.S. Army said.
Some traders are still suffering from October whiplash as November begins on Wall Street today. After a scary swoon in the middle of the month, stocks rallied strongly into the end of October, with the Dow and S&P 500 hitting new record highs on Friday. But the midmonth slide did some major technical damage to the market, according to Thomas Kee, president & CEO of Stock Traders Daily, who has a very, very bearish long-term view.
“When the market broke just recently…the uptrend that was established at the beginning of 2013 also broke,” he says. “So we are no longer in that upward sloping channel that began at the beginning of 2013 and that opens the door for further declines.” How much further? Back on Oct. 9, Kee told clients that a break of 1925 would put the S&P 500 on track to fall to as low as 1469 “in a very short period.” But 1469 was just a way station toward Kee’s ultimate target of a 66% drop in the S&P 500. (Yes, a 66% decline and, no, that is not a typo.)
Kee concedes the recovery from the market’s Oct. 15 low at 1820 “was significant and you can't be as bearish as we were below 1920 when the reversal happened.” Still, he’s sticking with those extremely bearish long-term targets. The late-October bounce “really doesn’t change my macro economic outlook,” Kee says. “It doesn't change the demographic risks that exist in our economy.”
now there is as much (or possibly more volatility) in world stock markets as chances of all out war increase in Ukraine, Middle East and possibly between Israel and Iran. Europe economy free falling as China can't find a big enough blanket to hide its falling GDP. So as we stare at $2.81 a share the big question is - when do we go back to $5 plus and what will be the reason Tvix doubles?
