  • The market is definitely not liking my boy TVIX...Down Y on X size jump yesterday...could not take out Y on 2X size drop today...suggests this bull may be a dead man walking but it will slowly take volatility with it...
    I think I'm going to book the gains for the day...Until we actually lose a big bank, market players have no sense of what's coming. And we trade on sense not logic.
    Will likely flow back to the miners...
    You still playing puts?

    Why miners are toast...

    by radmok 18 hours ago

    Actually, as reported earlier in the year, those still with us are doing fairly well. They had trimmed the fat and got costs under control and most were positioned for $1000 per ounce gold...This is why they have rallied the way they have.

    This is a technical correction at best. Big money is holding, we pause periodically to let go of a few retail types..
    Doesn't matter what you post, the fundamentals are the fundamentals.

  • ndi, Can you believe how the mainstream media reports news? I just heard Jim Cramer as a result of somebody's weaker than expected earnings, say Venezuela was a "failed state"... Here, is a country who is in literal ruins, as a result of following our failed policies of super QE, who has suspended the rule of law, whose citizens wait on lines half a day to get one freaken dollar out of their frozen bank accounts, then get in another line the other half a day to try and spend that dollar in a rationed food store. In desperate need, a model of what not to do, that we are leading the pack on trying to get to the same place; and do you ever see one bit of coverage on the our mainstream news?

    I believe our markets and treatment of the world, are a smite on this planet, and will suffer the ultimate corrective cleansing by the invisible hand and every other sane hand...

  • By the way, these two headlines are from zero hedge.

    Can markets actually be faked out indefinitely?

    Are we and the institutions and the dark poolers and and hedgies all stupid?
    I don't think so.

    Hold your TVIX
    It's about to hit the fan...in a progressive awareness mode.

  • We are a witness to mainstream media most egregious manipulation attempt of the markets.
    News overnight, this plus another, caused markets to sell off world wide, yet, these folks on TV have not even mentioned it.
    All keeping a calm face in the presence of triple digit futures drop(and that is with the PPT trimmings).

    It is truly amazing.

    sounds like buffett is worried

    Finally, got you on record as shorting at $3.40...
    So first of all, this market will drop in a way that makes the 2008/2009 crash look like the opening act. If you don't know this, then your short is understandable. Sell in May, will simply kick in, the all ready deteriorating market internals. And when the real drop gains traction, The VIX leaps over 50, and TVIX moves in excess of 10X over the balance of the year...2016 is the year of jubilee and it is in the cards. A manifest destiny of those who seek to remake society. I could never quite understand the desire to make 100% return in the face of an inevitable 10000% return on the long side...

    .p.s. you really think that Gold is going up because of a weak dollar? The dollar was a lot weaker recently when Gold was a lot weaker as well. The spin is bs, gold is going up because of a collapse in confidence of the dollar not the mathematics of valuation. This market will go down, for the same reason. The knife is about to cut in the other direction...and our posts on this little message boards has absolutely no influence on direction.

  • All the technicals suggested a down market, so of course, lets do a little jig headfake...But the facts are the facts and the talking heads on TV will not save you..

    Wouldn't you agree that the only way a short should be celebrating is if they are covering at $3.40, versus initiating positions?
    What do you think if you do that...

    Buffet likely exiting positions all day long...rates at 0 for 50 years DOW at 100K lol...
    That is good. Buffet knows they are about to take this puppy down and he needed some knuckleheads to sell to..
    TVIX at $3.40 is looking real good at this point.

  • They pledge to keep the candy coming but did not increase it?
    How freaking pathetic is that? And the mainstream media keeps a straight face.

    Deutsche Bank reports a profit when the street thought they would have near a 1/2 Billion euro loss?

    And we just believe what they say?

    You know the expression: going to hexx in a hand-basket?
    Well, it looks like we don't even have the basket.

    Nothing...these ETNs are well funded and very liquid and represent an asset that worst case would end up in some other banks portfolio.

    The move to cannibalize each other in tech has never been as fierce...I'm in an industry where tech intersects with a too big too fail bank, with a front row seat for the "next big transition"...And it's going to be nasty.

    I think we may have a collapse coming in the bond market, but DB is a good bet as well. The real economy is so bad that central banks are sweating heavily, trying to keep rates down, but there is no volume support under sovereign bonds, and rates will climb, and businesses already planning significantly more layoffs will escalate the same. Sell in May mentality will only exacerbate all of what we cite. I have one more installment buy on TVIX, then I will just wait...knowing it won't go bankrupt! lol.

    you would be dead son...here's a tip...some folks in this world, not only don't need to lie, some folks find the TRUTH quite fascinating...so while you shorties need to short and distort as a way of life.
    jwtechy, the same on yahoo and gmail, posting on yahoo for decades, can go to court on every post since I started this gig, over 25 years ago. I actually posted my loss in a reply to you that yahoo found too distasteful to publish. My loss on that trade, exceeds your life savings probably by an order of magnitude. Gives you a sense of the chips I have on the table. And I have a day job...lol

    Did you sell me naked TVIX shares at $3.46?
    You keep holding that short.
    By the time all is said and done you'll need to find all of your Harriet Tubman twenties to cover your losses.
    You seem to have a hard time determining if in at .52 and out at .44 is a loss or not...
    TVIX is a strong buy until further notice, and no need to duck in and out...
    I'm predicting a 10X rise from current levels and not on a man fell out a plane pop, but into the new era of markets.
    Central banks are even sickening themselves. So how did the Mario candy work for you?

    SUNE in at .52 out at .44 - I think I held it a day and a half...
    Once I looked up the definition of DIP..I dipped out.

    The new Yuan, no doubt is being positioned for the "next" reserve currency status.
    I would not trade my gold backed anything for US debt ridden fiat...
    We are in a "higher they rise" the "harder they fall" type market right now...I don't trust nose bleed level stocks, but still circling the wagons on the TVIX bottom...
