THE FED SHOULD JUST RENAME THE MARKETS WALL STREET FEDERAL RESERVE BANK. Because this is exactly the reason why I put every available dollar that I have into UPRO and TQQQ. The fed has really put themselves and the country behind the eightball this time with an $18 trillion ton US Debt Ball that will only get heavier in time. THE FED DARE NOT RAISE INTEREST RATES EVER AGAIN OR THE US DEBT WILL TAKE THE UNITED STATES INTO A GREAT RECESSION. JUST STAY LONG, JANET HAS YOUR BACK UNTIL SHE DOESN'T. AND, THAT'S A VERY VERY VERY LONG TIME. Who is the fed and the media kidding, the market will double again in the next 3 years.
WHY THE FED HASN'T ALREADY RENAMED WALL ST. AS WALL STREET FEDERAL RESERVE BANK & LOAN IS BEYOND ME. In the next 5 to 10 years we will have no further need for banks, because interest rates on our money will go by the wayside. Sad but true. Janet has our back until she doesn't and that's for a very VERY LONG TIME.
THE FED HAS BAKED A PIE FULL OF CAPITAL GAINS FOR RETIRING BABY BOOMERS TO HAVE "AMPLE" AVAILABLE CASH TO "CONTINUE" SUPPORTING THE ECONOMY. Problem is, 95% of those not 50+ are dying a slow death in student loans, car loans, esculated apartment rent and doesn't even include a baby and a wife. IT'S POORSVILLE IN AMERICA, DON'T LET ANYONE FOOL YOU. AND, THAT'S WHY THE FED WILL NEVER STOP SUPPORTING STOCKS THIS TIME AROUND. BANK ON IT!!
What the us fed has tought the world ... To stimulate thru qe any time you have weakness in your economy. this can only prop assets that much longer, probably for more than most of our life times. forget picking up stocks cheap again, game over!! i have every available penny of mine in stocks today and i'm not going any where. even if we have a a 20% correction, we will just tack on another 50% higher after the correction. the fed is creating the monster of all bubbles and enjoy it while they are dishing out the free food.
Yellen pushes stocks higher with carefully manuscripted speach
Blah Blah Blah ... Yellen's speach is a SLEEPER ... NOTHING SHE SAYS CHANGES VAULTING STOCK MARKET
Fed offers no certainty which is like everything else, "bullish for stocks" i cannot recall another time in my life when making money in stocks was so stupidly simple. Can you?
The good thing about QE in the US was that it helped recover the stock market and housing market. The downside is that every country outside of the US has adopted Stimulus thru QE. Now what? We are trying to taper QE/Stimulus in the US, while China, Japan and Europe keep fueling their markets with QE 2.3,and 4? How is this going to affect investment decisions? SHORT THE US AND GO LONG CHINA, JAPAN AND ANYWHERE ELSE THAT'S DOING QE? One of the several reasons for not launching QE, but the cat's out of the bag now and lets see how this plays itself out. MY GUESS IS THAT WHILE THE OTHER WORLD'S COUNTRY'S CONTINUE TO FUEL USING QE, THE US MARKETS WILL FALL BEHIND OR GO INTO DECLINE, SETTING THE STAGE FOR MORE US FUELING USING ... YOU GOT IT ... MORE QE AND JUST THAT MUCH MORE MONEY PRINTING.
There is no way that stock investors are going to sell "any" of there stock "any time soon". it's just that simple. if they did it would be to purchase a house or something else that they need. it would not be due to an elivated stock market. because the stock market is definitely not elivated. not even close. enjoy utopia, it's here for the rest of most of your life times. thank god that the fed finally got it right and completely broadcasted that they are bullish on stocks and that they have stock investors back for the rest of their lives. it's just what they are saying every time that they make a speech that they are keeping rates low for an extended time. that will never change in our lifetimes.
The fed will "never" remove "considerable time" in our life time because the job market is paralized and will never recover from the financial crisis and recession.
Double tops keep turning into "BREAK OUTS". LIKE TODAY'S BREAKOUT ON THE DOW INDUSTRIALS. NOTHING BUT SKY ABOVE THE BRAKOUT FROM WHAT LOOKED LIKE A "DOUBLE DOUBLE TOP". We will only see a top in the stock market when there is something that competes for the money that investors are piling into the stock market. NO SUCH THING IN SIGHT.
Just think of the money that will be made in stocks over the next two years. oh my god!! the fed has lost their ability to manage stock market advances. we are in one monster breakout that has no top in sight. all blue sky ahead ladies and gents. if you have been fighting this bull market, may i make a suggestion? don't!
For the rich, they're hating the fact that they too cannot buy a pullback. there are no pullbacks. those not aboard the bull hate that they cannot buy a pullback. there are no pullbacks. the world is praying for a us market pullback, that will "never" happen, and definitely not this year/2014.
Ouch!!! george is losing his golden midus touch! betting $2 billion with s&p 500 puts in the 2nd and 3rd quarters of 2014 was a very bad decision. george's losses are piling up by the day with no relief in sight. the bull is eating george alive. that has gotta hurt and be embarrassing all at the same time. Right? sorry for your losses george. better cover your put short positions tomorrow. that should just fuel this monster bull that much further.
If you are fortunate enough and astute enough to pull of gains in the market, hats off to you. I work very hard to identify periods of time when the risk/reward ratio is in my favor. In a bull market, it's brain dead easy to make money, just buy an idex fund and you're making money within a week or two.
We are seeing major deterioration in REITS and other sectors of the market. The advance is definitely slowing. I'm long for maybe today and possibly tomorrow morning depending if we can get to my 2,012.95 target. This is of course only short term and only for traders who can follow hour to hour moves in the market. All is my opinion and not advice. Be sure to do your own research to decide for yourself what is best for you.
THE STOCK MARKET IS NOTHING MORE THAN A FORWARD DISCOUNTING MECHINISM. You, as an investor or trader, either get it right or wrong. Win or lose, that's all the market is. IT'S NOT A PYRAMID SCHEME or some kind of PONZI SCHEME, etc. I can see how some, who have not made money in the market or have been on the losing side with the market, could think of the market in this way. But, calling a market a Pyramid scheme is like calling Janet Yellen the Wizard of Oz. It's purely speculation and fairytale. One person's opninion. I cannot believe, that after a doubling + of the market, there are still those who don't believe that the market can make you money. I can guarantee you this. If you bought SPY or any other index ETF today, by year end, you will be making at least 3 to 5%, and that sure beats the heck out of what your crooked bank is going to give you. Your bank is the one you need to lose trust in, not the stock market. Hey, I just want you all to make money in stocks like I have in the past 3 years. I have captured more than 80% of the run from the 2009 low. Nothing to sniff at.
Testosterone, steroids mixed with drugs and alcohol will make ordinary men do crazy stuff. the nfl is only as good as the purity of player's life style and diet.
At this time, every analyst, every marketimer, every brokerage firm is long and has stated that any minor 5 to 7% pullback should be bought. what that tells you is you have absolutely nothing to worry about being long. i'm tripple 3x long with all three 3x index etfs. and, i'm so sure that we are going higher, that i have taken off all of my hedges. so predictable that we are going higher. the us market has turned into on giant pond of world bank money that can't find a yield anywhere else, thanks to our us federal reserve and janet yellen, who is afraid to raise rates. they're chicken at the federal reserve because they're afraid a rise in rates would add higher interest onto the us $18 trillion debt. They're right. so forget about the fed and yellen, they're lame duck fed folk and are strapped into not raising rates until 2016 at the earliest. don't let anyone in the media fool you. It's party time!!! so party!!!
PARTY LIKE IT'S 1999!!!
