Thanks for the Time Warp revival! I remember how popular C&C were in the 70's, and my Mom said we couldn't watch it.
They are, and have been for some time; it simply wasn't made public. Just wait, it will happen here, and the stick save by the Federal Reserve has been in place for years. This is an unpaid announcement as a service to the public.
When adverse weather CONditions are touted as a downside factor, you know it's a grasp at any straw.
The Reality Check is: When some negative weather event is announced by the media, folks tend to stock the pantry, and purchase goods and supplies like shovels, camp stoves, extra gasoline, blankets, tarps, and plywood, etc.
They don't get fired from their jobs due to bad weather, nor does preannounced negative weather affect the overall sales for most CONsumer staples businesses, especially for the chain stores which are publicly listed.
Airlines don't pay at the pump; they hedge in the futures markets. When bankruptcy is part of the business plan, as history in that industry has shown, you know it's a winning trade, until it's not.
What if Iran has all the firepower of its opponents, and has had for years? All this media spin would be for naught; at the end of the day, either can end it for any. Up in smoke ain't no joke.
As if the "Art Cashin Signal for the buy or sell side, that is humped on Bill G.'s closing bell segment, never has anything but an even number?
A dip to 240ish level, and perhaps another media pump for a stick save to 1950ish. Those hedgie bears have been starved for too many years, and only HFT and bots can trade such swings. My Scottrade platform always seems to #$%$ out or stall out, when the signifiant lows are hitting, and other retail folks say the same is experienced on their brokerage sites. Derivatives are the dominoes.
the Autumn and Winter seasons of 2014, and seemingly accurate for 2015.
Even a call in the ballpark is notable.
Maybe, and highly likely.
Press CONferences are a joke, and nothing of substance is ever detail. Whatever is fed into the media stream is just fodder for the Plebeians to be pacified on; as those who can press buttons tell their citizens to sleep well.
A wise person never underestimates the power of their opponent.
Exactly. Let's just skip all the BS and political posturing and agree on mutually assured destruction. When one states the end game, all the "negotiations" are tossed out of the room, and less taxpayers money is wasted on meaningless blather. Save time, save money, and save yourself when in the face of an opposing equal.
