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?
Oh I think they understand it but the problem with this ETF as we so many is the swing or spread during day trading, Like today $36 down to $30 and back to $33. Now if you betting pennies, nickels or dimes you can play but if your betting a good size numbers, you will be taken out due to the big up and down moves. The time to buy this was back when it was in the teens. I did but my stops got hit and I walked with a small profit. Of course some folks just buy and hold but that''s a dangerous game with gold swinging up and down in big moves.
and in between Germany says "No Q.E. in my back yard".
Not with an 11 billion dollar stock buy back - bone head. Go a head and "short" PFE going into earnings report and watch your losing position cost you serious money.
probably the whole week as earning reports today through Friday should be awful. Watch KO start the ball rolling down hill with a Big Miss.
Oh where is Apple when we need them? Guess Cook is with his boyfriend trying to figure out why all of Apple's products are dropping other then the iPhone with bigger screen. Such creative thinking at Apple these days.
Dad's a sleep dreaming of a 200 point market sell off today. What goes up must come down. And look at China Mobile drop through the floor - ugly.
