But it is what it is.
The volatility created, unnerving all that energy costs are going down?
Imagine an economy that actually improves, energy costs unravel, middle class benefits but the equity market drops?
Who benefits? Ahem., ahem.......
I'm just pointing out another playbook. Theirs is the one that counts and you can play with 'em or not.
Bottom line; Oil glut. Energy prices reduced.
Different than a wealth effect from the markets which had limited success.
None the less, this plan will help Joe Sixpack.
And this is while Draghi and Co play Ben's song.
Weaker foreign currency, their turn. Normally you'd say stronger dollar eh?
They figured out a new trick.
Actually, what I'm implying, in simple terms so the cavemen can understand me, is this;
The Fed got it right these past years.
The Powers that be did as well.
Next up on the agenda? There's one obvious trick up their sleeves.
We have monetary inflation which doesn't translate into demand inflation.
They fear deflation and the drop in oil prices could / should create more demand across all fronts.
They will head off this deflation and demand will spur more buying, and our limp economy may actually take off some bandages.
Pop goes the weasel.
And more beef in the hamburger helper.
Main Street has 46 For Rent signs.
The Miraculous Mile has no vacancies.
And Ferrari is adding more models this year.
Go and figure.................
I went to bed with a neck brace. Lucky me.
Today is a pizzer.
Uncle Carl touts his AAPL holdings and gets a CNBC audience on top of twitter.
After listening, I decided I'd rather read your weekly rant instead. Honest sarcasm is worth the read. Especially what you get paid........
So the Fed didn't like the market reaction to 0 interest rates for a "considerable time" implying the economy is worse off than Kurdasihstan. Same situation though.
Which is worse? Erdigan watching as ISIS takes out the Kurds which then leads to him asking for Blama to come and partner to take out ISIS after that deed is done
The Fed watching and seeing a dead economy and 0 interest rates mean a continuation of a dead economy, so let's play chicken and tell the markets we will see a rise in rate before next Christmas?
Only in America baby.
C'mon Uncle Carl.
I dreamed I heard a rumor Ben is going to use Apple Pay at his closing.
Sometimes technical get trumped and smothered by fundamentals. The charts are supposed to know what's coming. But fact is, the charts aren't nearly always right.
In the midst of a run, they often reflect weakness incorrectly as we get light volume days.
But fiscal and geo-political risks have trumped everything else.
Risk has been and is still ON.
Every person who posts or ever posted "watch and learn", needs a spanking.
Kid, better stay in school.
Hmmmm,there's a rumor Borat was schtupping Alina Kabaeva at the Premier Palace.
Besides raising the red flag, it'll raise some eyebrows, which in turn will raise the price of AU and AG a bit.
And many of the miners have moved to achieve this (technically) inevitable next leg up.
(If you believe in tea leaves and what not) :)
Re-entry in this may be approaching. This will likely trend higher as the miners make their comeback.
The reason is obvious.
GLTA metals players.
Veal Chops, good thick, first cut chops at my local eatery are $48.
Just wait, burgers are next. Where's the beef?
And Mr. Wanderer, I don't own any shares of SLW for a while now. Other metals and minders, yes.
Complain,bla bla bla.....but China is buying the #$%$ out of Gold for a reason.
And the miners have been performing well.
This is a very intelligent thread.
The average Joe should read it.....three times!
But, after reading it, we ask, "how the heck did we get to where we are"? With DOW and most indexes at all time highs? But labor participation at all time lows.
And Joe's aunt, uncle and every member of his AA group has a 55 inch TV, purchased on their Visa card.
How'd they get the TV? How'd they get the credit? How'd they pay each month's bill?
They learned how from a reality TV show.
And everyone applying for UE benefits or food "stamps" does it from their dumb phone. Who pays for that?
We got 3 more years of gimme shelter, and then if the former first lady takes the helm, another 8.
What me worry?
earnings and revenues continue to outperform, as they have each and every one of the past 4 quarters?
If the answer is yes, we are looking at a reasonably CHEAP PPS and in the years ahead will drive into triple digits, EASILY.
I am not trading this company.
I do not care if it closes over 47, 46,48 today.
Talk to me 3 years from now.
I'll still be here.
GL to all longs.
